Projected to Finish Third, Scott's Team Crushed This Draft

Draft Summary

Picking fifth in the draft, Scott's Team delivered a roster that even a spurned ex would have to appreciate. They're projected to finish third in Victory is Mine League at 9-4-0 (1,948 points). They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Cam Newton (20th overall), RBs Matt Forte (44th) and Arian Foster (53rd), and WRs Odell Beckham Jr. (5th) and Jordy Nelson (29th). They also landed the most prolific QB tandem in the league, as they added Newton and Alex Smith to their squad.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Scott's Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a weaker-than-average slate. Scott's Team could run into an early gauntlet, as the first four games of their season are projected to be more difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    Scott's Team drafted top-3 players at four different positions, including Cam Newton, Odell Beckham Jr., and Chris Boswell.

  • Team of Champions

  • It's How You Finish

    Scott's Team must have had a motivational halftime speech, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Scott's Team nabbed a sleeper in Tajae Sharpe with pick No. 149.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, Scott's Team chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
