Manuel's Super Team was unfortunate enough to land the last pick in the opening round. While some thrive in that scenario, this team responded to the adversity by tanking the draft and finishing with the worst projected team in Yahoo Public 95288. Behind multiple Chiefs in the early rounds (Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Tyreek Hill), Manuel's Super Team are predicted to finish with a mark of 2-12 (1,746 points).
- Sony Michel
Manuel's Super Team netted a nice late-round bargain when they picked up Michel at No. 111, about three rounds later than his ADP of 91. Coming off a season in which he ran for 912 yards and 7 TDs and snagged 12 balls for 94 yards, totaling 147 fantasy points, Michel is projected to score 172 fantasy points with the Patriots. That makes him a valuable No. 4 RB for this squad.
- Robert Woods
You must know something nobody else does. There's no other reason you would draft Woods in the 5th round, about 19 spots earlier than his ADP of 69. Projected to score 180 fantasy points this season with the Rams, he'll aim to match last year when he racked up 90 catches for 1,134 yards and 2 TDs, posting 188 fantasy points. According to projections, Woods will slot in as the No. 2 WR for Manuel's Super Team to begin the season.
With only two quarterbacks off the board, Manuel's Super Team saw a run and jumped in early, taking Dak Prescott with the 51st overall pick. Three more quarterbacks came off the board in the ensuing round.
Week 8 will bring on a case of the Bye Week Blues for Manuel's Super Team, as they have five players on a bye (Melvin Gordon III, James Conner, Diontae Johnson, Derrius Guice, and Zane Gonzalez). Steve's Team, your Week 8 opponent, won't be quite as encumbered with only two players (Kenyan Drake and Denver) on the sideline.
According to projected records, Manuel's Super Team face an uphill battle in Yahoo Public 95288 this season with a strength of schedule that rates as the most difficult. That doesn't mean you have to lose, though. You can't control strength of schedule, but you can control your team. Fantasy football rewards those who put in the work, so be sure to keep up-to-date with the essential backups for your top players.
In spite of offensive openings at QB, WR, and TE in the 4th round, Manuel's Super Team drafted RB Melvin Gordon III at No. 31, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a more important position. They were the third 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.
