While this draft by Brockway Badgers didn't exactly set the world on fire, it didn't destroy their playoff aspirations either. They are expected to be in the mix for a playoff spot with a projected sixth-place finish in Yahoo Public 387340 League at 7-7-0 (1,532 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Andrew Luck (46th overall), RB Ezekiel Elliott (6th), WR Mike Evans (15th), and TE Jordan Reed (35th) within the first five rounds. They ended up with one of the top TE combos in the league, as they have Reed and Dwayne Allen.
While Week 9 has the most players on bye for Brockway Badgers (four), Week 11 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a weaker-than-average slate. Corresponding with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, Brockway Badgers also has the second-softest last four games of the season.

How We Grade
Draft grades are based strictly on teams' draft performances.

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.
