Blessed with a solid draft position (No. 5 overall), expectations were high for An Easy W. But those expectations disappeared quickly after they drafted, as this team is headed for a lackluster 7th-place finish in Hiawatha Elite League. An Easy W are projected to post a record of 6-7 (1,593 points).

  • Deebo Samuel

Best Pick: What a fantastic late-round bargain for An Easy W, who selected Samuel at No. 125, about three rounds later than his ADP of 92. Following a rookie season in which he recorded 57 receptions for 802 yards and 3 TDs, totaling 132 fantasy points, Samuel is projected to score 175 fantasy points with the 49ers. That makes him a valuable No. 1 WR for this squad.

  • Emmanuel Sanders

Going out on a Limb: You must have gotten distracted, right? This had to be an autopick. There's no other explanation for selecting Sanders in the 5th round, about five rounds earlier than his ADP of 120. Projected to score 92 fantasy points this season with the Saints, he will need to outperform expectations to improve upon last year when he had 66 catches for 869 yards and 5 TDs to earn 124 fantasy points. Based on projections, Sanders will slot in as the No. 5 WR for An Easy W to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • Patience is a virtue. You became the last manager in the league to draft a wide receiver with your selection of Emmanuel Sanders (No. 53 overall).

  • An Easy W will live and die with the Packers this season, as the selections of Aaron Rodgers, Allen Lazard, Jamaal Williams, and Mason Crosby give them four players from Green Bay, more than any other team in Hiawatha Elite League. League-wide, the most popular team was the Cowboys, as eight of them were selected in the draft.

  • With a first-half strength of schedule that rates as the easiest according to projected records, An Easy W won't encounter too many obstacles early in the season in Hiawatha Elite League. Despite that, for the full season, An Easy W face a fairly balanced path rated as the 8th hardest.

  • Despite offensive openings at WR and TE in the 4th round, An Easy W selected RB Le'Veon Bell with the 44th pick, filling the WR/RB flex position instead of a more important position.

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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
