They loaded up on ball carriers early, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs LeSean McCoy (third round), Devonta Freeman (fourth round), and Jay Ajayi (fifth round).

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.
