Behind a Quality Backfield, Terry's Team Have a Chance to Win this Thing
Blessed with a juicy draft position (No. 2 overall), Terry's Team had an exceptional performance. With Saquon Barkley and Austin Ekeler slated to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league, Terry's Team are predicted to finish 2nd in Yahoo Public 12704 with a record of 10-4 (1,918 points).
- Jarvis Landry
What a nice late-round value for Terry's Team, who picked up Landry at No. 102, about 11 spots later than his ADP of 91. Coming off a season in which he recorded 83 catches for 1,174 yards and 6 TDs, totaling 196 fantasy points, Landry is projected to score 193 fantasy points with the Browns. That makes him a valuable No. 3 WR for this squad.
- Terry McLaurin
Going out on a Limb
Are you in a sharing mood? We'd love to learn what prompted the selection of McLaurin with the 9th pick of the 4th round, about two rounds earlier than his ADP of 62. Then again, you may be onto something? Projected to score 211 fantasy points this season with the Redskins, he looks poised to outperform his rookie year when he racked up 58 catches for 919 yards and 7 TDs over 14 games to earn 163 fantasy points. Based on projected points, McLaurin will slot in as the No. 1 WR for Terry's Team to begin the season.
With only one kicker off the board, Terry's Team foresaw a run looming and got in early, taking Harrison Butker with the 9th pick of the 8th round. Six more kickers came off the board in the subsequent round.
Terry's Team are in for a rude awakening in Week 9 when they have six players on a bye, led by Tyler Boyd, Jarvis Landry, and Cooper Kupp. Frank's Team, your Week 9 opponent, will have three players (Baker Mayfield, Tyler Higbee, and Philadelphia) on a bye.
For the first half of the season, Terry's Team have one of the most challenging schedules in Yahoo Public 12704 according to projected records with an early-season strength of schedule rated as the 2nd-most difficult. Despite that, for the full season, Terry's Team have drawn a pretty fair schedule rated as the 5th toughest.
Despite an opening remaining at QB in the 6th round, Terry's Team selected RB Cam Akers at No. 59, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position rather than a position of greater importance. They were the last squad to make their first flex pick.

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.
