Having the first pick in the draft doesn't guarantee a title. It very well could in this case, though. Travis's Team did what elite fantasy owners do when they land the No. 1 overall pick. They built a juggernaut. The team is especially talented at running back, as Saquon Barkley and Joe Mixon are slated to combine for the highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. Travis's Team are predicted to finish in first place in Yahoo Public 1063532 with a mark of 12-2 (1,982 points).
- Lamar Miller
Travis's Team scored a late-round bargain in picking Miller with the 10th pick of the 12th round, about two rounds later than his ADP of 96. After a season in which he rushed for 973 yards and 5 TDs and hauled in 25 balls for 163 yards and 1 TD in 14 games, totaling 160 fantasy points, Miller is projected to score 167 fantasy points with the Texans. That makes him a valuable No. 3 RB for this squad.
- David Montgomery
Going out on a Limb
It seems everyone considers themselves the next Brad Evans these days, so there's no telling who led you to choose Montgomery with the 1st pick in the 5th round, about 17 picks earlier than his ADP of 58. Montgomery is projected to score 116 fantasy points this season with the Bears. Montgomery will slot in as the No. 4 RB for Travis's Team, based on projections.
Travis's Team got it started at the kicker position, taking Greg Zuerlein at No. 81 as the first K off the draft board. In the subsequent round, four more kickers came off the board.
Travis's Team face a tough task in Week 9 when they have three players on a bye (Joe Mixon, Greg Zuerlein, and New Orleans). Perhaps leveling the playing field, T's Top-Notch Team, your Week 9 opponent, will be tackling a similar struggle with two players (Julio Jones and A.J. Green) on a bye.
Travis's Team have drawn a straightforward path in Yahoo Public 1063532 this season according to projections with a strength of schedule ranked as the easiest. Don't be fooled, though, your work has just begun. If you're not careful, even soft schedules can become tricky without notice.
In spite of remaining openings at QB and TE in the 5th round, Travis's Team drafted RB David Montgomery at No. 41, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position rather than 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.
