With a Projected Finish of 11th, Hangovers Threw the Draft on Purpose?
Sometimes in life we make mistakes. Hangovers will hopefully use this one as a learning opportunity, so in future drafts they will perform much better. After selecting ninth overall, they are projected to go 6-7-0 (2,194 points) and finish 11th in OklahomIraqis League NFC League. They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (20th overall), RB C.J. Anderson (37th), WR A.J. Green (9th), and TE Greg Olsen (48th) within the first five rounds. They also have the best QB combo in the league, as they have Rodgers and Carson Palmer on the roster.
While Week 10 has the most players on bye for Hangovers (four), Week 9 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the most challenging schedules. Hangovers will have to be on top of their game as the playoffs approach, as the last four games of their season are projected to be more difficult than the league average.

How We Grade
Draft grades are based strictly on teams' draft performances. This is calculated by counting the number of fantasy points teams are projected to score over the course of the season using their optimal line-ups. The grades do not take schedule into account. Because of bye weeks and other variables it is possible to earn a high grade yet be projected to finish in the middle of the pack. The opposite is also true. Bottom line: Fantasy Football is like the real game. You can draft the greatest talent in the world but you still need to manage your team every week to get the most out of that talent.
