Turning a bottom-half draft slot into top-half results is the sign of a wonderful effort by the GM. Such was the case with Todd's Terrific Team, which flipped its No. 8 overall pick into a projected 5th-place finish in Yahoo Public 1024821. Todd's Terrific Team are predicted to put up a total of 2,002 points based on the current roster, which would result in a 9-6 record.
- Los Angeles
Leader of the Pack
Todd's Terrific Team initiated a run on the position, taking the Rams at No. 73 as the first DEF off the draft board. Three more defensive units went in the round that followed. Following a season in which the unit tallied 151 fantasy points, Los Angeles is projected to score 119 fantasy points this season.
- Gus Edwards
Are you willing to reveal your source? We'd love to know what prompted you to draft Edwards with the 8th pick in the 11th round, about 12 picks earlier than his ADP of 120. Projected to score 128 fantasy points this season with the Ravens, he will attempt to perform similarly to last year when he ran 144 times for 723 yards and 6 TDs to earn 124 fantasy points. Based on projected points, Edwards will slot in as the No. 4 RB for Todd's Terrific Team to begin the season.
Todd's Terrific Team face a tough task in Week 7 when they have four players on a bye (Greg Zuerlein, Irv Smith Jr., Travis Etienne, and Los Angeles). Your Week 7 opponent, Derrick's Quality Team, won't be nearly as hamstrung with only one player (Dalvin Cook) on a bye.
Based on projected records, Todd's Terrific Team have one of the best schedules in Yahoo Public 1024821 this season with a strength of schedule ranked as the 3rd easiest.
With the oldest group in the league at an average of 6.1 years of NFL experience, Todd's Terrific Team appear to be counting on veteran leadership. Despite that, they still selected one rookie (Travis Etienne). In total, there were 10 rookies selected over the course of the Yahoo Public 1024821 draft.
Despite an open slot at QB in the 6th round, Todd's Terrific Team chose RB Travis Etienne at No. 53, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position rather than 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.
