Dev's Dazzling Team can blame their late draft position as an excuse for coming up short after selecting in the bottom half of the first round (No. 6 overall). This team won't strike fear in the heart of anyone with a projected record of 3-12 (1,930 points). Behind multiple Chargers in the early rounds (Austin Ekeler and Keenan Allen), Dev's Dazzling Team are predicted to finish 9th in Yahoo Public 1024821.
- DJ Chark Jr.
What a late-round bargain for Dev's Dazzling Team, who got Chark Jr. at No. 115, about 14 picks later than his ADP of 101. Following a season in which he snagged 56 balls for 722 yards and 5 TDs in 14 games, totaling 127 fantasy points, Chark Jr. is projected to score 197 fantasy points with the Jaguars. That makes him a valuable No. 3 WR for this squad.
- Brandon Aiyuk
Going out on a Limb
Either you know something that everybody else doesn't or you got ahead of yourself with your selection of Aiyuk at No. 55, about 16 spots earlier than his ADP of 71. Granted, maybe you're onto something? Projected to score 201 fantasy points this season with the 49ers, he appears set to beat his rookie year when he grabbed 60 balls for 748 yards and 5 TDs over 12 games to post 155 fantasy points. Aiyuk will slot in as the No. 2 WR for Dev's Dazzling Team, based on projected points.
Dev's Dazzling Team are particularly thin at wide receiver, selecting the fewest of any team in the league with only three, trailing the league average of 4.9.
Dev's Dazzling Team are in for a rude awakening in Week 7 when they have five players on a bye (Justin Herbert, Kirk Cousins, Austin Ekeler, Keenan Allen, and DJ Chark Jr.). Luckily, Aaron's Crazy Team, your Week 7 opponent, will be facing a similar conundrum with five players on a bye week.
With a strength of schedule that ranks as the 3rd-most difficult based on projections, Dev's Dazzling Team have one of the most daunting schedules in Yahoo Public 1024821 this season. But all is not lost. Strength of schedule doesn't factor in the work you put in. There are infinite means to keep improving over the course of the season for those who remain involved.
Even with unfilled positions at QB and WR in the 5th round, Dev's Dazzling Team drafted RB Miles Sanders at No. 46, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a position of greater need.

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.
