Putting together a playoff-caliber roster, Elwood's Blues didn't break any records with this draft, but they put together a quality team that will be tough to match up against. Looking at their schedule, they figure to reach the playoffs with an 8-6-0 (1,410) record and fifth-place finish in Olson/Donoghue Football League. They won't have any issues with depth at WR, using their first three picks to load up, drafting Odell Beckham Jr., Mike Evans, and Brandin Cooks. If these guys can do what they're expected to do, Elwood's Blues will benefit. They are the best group of WRs in the league.
Elwood's Blues decided to disregard their only keeper spot, instead leaving their fantasy fate solely in the hands of the draft.
Elwood's Blues can chalk up Week 8 as a loss. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Along with having the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Elwood's Blues has the second-toughest first four games of the season.
Shouldering the Burden
Elwood's Blues has four above-average positions with TE and WR projected to lead the way.
May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

Defense Wins Championships?
Elwood's Blues chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
A Dominating Pair

The Heist Is On
The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Elwood's Blues got a steal in snatching Julian Edelman in the ninth round (82nd overall pick vs. ADP of 46.6).
Does Odell Beckham Jr. Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

All Over the Field
- Greg Olsen, TE
- Round 5, Pick 42
Greg Olsen is projected to rank among the top-5 for TEs in both receiving TDs (fourth with 7) and receiving yards (third with 949).
Is Eli Manning Religious?
- Eli Manning, QB
- Round 6, Pick 59
With 331 projected points, Elwood's Blues will be hoping Manning is the answer to their prayers.

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.
