Picking eighth, TD's In Yo' Face! put together a team that is expected to finish the season in a favorable spot. There's something to be said for a GM who flipped a bottom of the barrel pick into a projected fifth-place finish in OUTLAWS FANTASY II League (8-5-0, 4,584 points). With six WRs on the roster, TD's In Yo' Face! guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 289, their WRs projected average of 283 points won't be much different than the rest of the wideouts around the league. They put together the worst QB duo in the league, as they added Blake Bortles and Tom Brady to their squad.
TD's In Yo' Face! should just disappear for a while during Week 5. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a weaker-than-average slate. TD's In Yo' Face! has the opportunity to start and finish with a flurry, as both the first four games and final four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Like Choosing Your Favorite Jonas Brother
TD's In Yo' Face! will have some nail-biting decisions to make each week at RB, with a small projected points difference between their second- (Jonathan Stewart), third- (Latavius Murray), and fourth-ranked (Ameer Abdullah) RBs.
Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for TD's In Yo' Face!, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Allen Robinson) and fourth-ranked (Sterling Shepard) wideouts.
The top half of the roster (from a projected points perspective) is relatively old (ranked No. 2 in the league with an average of 7.4 years of NFL experience), whereas the bottom half is fairly young (ranked No. 9 with 4.4 years).
Team of Champions
TD's In Yo' Face! is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy rosters, including Brandon Marshall, Allen Robinson, and Mark Ingram.

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.
