Despite selecting with the third overall pick, Ms Moss couldn't capitalize on the opportunity and drafted a roster that will have trouble winning. Opponents will enjoy beating this team with regularity, which is projected to finish ninth in League of Champions.and Haley League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,677 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Antonio Brown (first round), Michael Thomas (second round), and Alshon Jeffery (fifth round). A lot will be expected of this group, as they are one of the highest-scoring groups of WRs in the league.
Ms Moss should use Week 7 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like what was the greatest thing before sliced bread? No, seriously, think about it. It's better than thinking about fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a harder-than-average slate. Ms Moss has the opportunity to come out firing, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Motor City Motivations
The fantasy hopes of Ms Moss rest heavily on the fortunes of Jim Caldwell's crew, as they loaded up with four Lions on their roster.
WR or Bust
WR is the only stronger-than-average position group for Ms Moss.
Up and Comers
Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and Ms Moss may have done just that, with five players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.
Close to the Vest
Ms Moss was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing eight "low-risk" players out of 17 picks.
Chris Carson and Paul Richardson are a couple of late-round fliers with upside for Ms Moss.
Earning His Keep
According to projections, Kirk Cousins should finish ranked 10th in the league in passing TDs (28.7) and third in passing yards (4,671).
Ask And You Shall Receive
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 3
Frequently the No. 1 overall pick last year, Brown lived up to the hype. Among all wide receivers, only Mike Evans and Jordy Nelson appeared on more championship rosters than Brown last season.
Going Against the Grain
- Michael Thomas, WR
- Round 2, Pick 18
Though he's an above-average player at his position, Michael Thomas was ultimately the weakest value pick of the round.
Haters Gonna Hate
- L. Fournette, RB
- Round 3, Pick 23
The rest of League of Champions.and Haley League overlooked a gem, and Ms Moss made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Leonard Fournette.
A Multifaceted Machine
- Ty Montgomery, RB
- Round 4, Pick 38
Montgomery is a dual-threat back for Ms Moss, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fifth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 531.
Go Big or Go Home
- Golden Tate, WR
- Round 6, Pick 58
Golden Tate is a constant threat to go deep, ranking second among NFL WRs in TDs over 40 yards with 2.1.
With five below-average positions on Ms Moss, TE and DEF are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Coby Fleener
- Rank 140, ADP 133
- Antonio Gates
- Rank 143, ADP 132
- Cincinnati Defense
- Rank 208, ADP 146
- Tennessee Defense
- Rank 220, ADP 132

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.
