After receiving a positive draft slot (No. 4 overall), Matt's Team had an excellent performance. With Michael Thomas and Tyreek Hill slated to combine for the highest point total of all starting WR groups in the league, Matt's Team are predicted to finish 2nd in Yahoo Public 2423 with a mark of 10-4 (1,928 points).
- Phillip Lindsay
Matt's Team scored a late-round bargain in selecting Lindsay with the 7th pick in the 10th round, about five rounds later than his ADP of 47. Coming off a rookie season in which he rushed for 1,037 yards and 9 TDs and grabbed 35 passes for 241 yards and 1 TD, totaling 205 fantasy points, Lindsay is projected to score 213 fantasy points with the Broncos. That makes him a valuable No. 2 RB for this squad.
- Tyreek Hill
You may have gotten a little too excited when deciding to choose Hill at No. 24, about 21 spots earlier than his ADP of 45. Projected to score 250 fantasy points this season with the Chiefs, he'll need to outperform expectations to improve on last year when he racked up 87 receptions for 1,479 yards and 12 TDs, totaling 291 fantasy points. Hill will slot in as the No. 2 WR for Matt's Team, according to projections.
With only two kickers off the board, Matt's Team foresaw a run and jumped in early, taking Greg Zuerlein with the 77th pick. Five more kickers went in the round that followed.
Matt's Team face a tough task in Week 9 when they have five players on a bye (Matt Ryan, Michael Thomas, Devonta Freeman, Greg Zuerlein, and New Orleans). Ashim's Expert Team, your Week 9 opponent, will have three players (Julio Jones, Cooper Kupp, and Los Angeles) on the sideline.
Going off projections, Matt's Team have one of the toughest schedules in the early-going in Yahoo Public 2423 with a first-half strength of schedule ranked as the 3rd-most difficult. Despite that, for the full season, Matt's Team have drawn a pretty fair path that rates as the 6th hardest.
Even with open slots at QB and TE in the 5th round, Matt's Team drafted WR Allen Robinson II at No. 44, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of 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.
