Despite an Exciting Set of WRs, sean tropiano's Team Has Nowhere to go but up

Draft Summary

Congratulations, sean tropiano's Team has earned a participation award. Because that's just about all they did in this draft, participate. This delightful roster (for the opposition) is projected to finish ninth in OUTLAWS FANTASY II League with a record of 2-11-0 (4,436 points). They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Cam Newton (46th overall), RBs Doug Martin (26th) and Jeremy Langford (35th), and WRs A.J. Green (6th) and Jordy Nelson (15th). They ended up with the bottom RB pair in the league, as they have Martin and Langford on the team.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.


Ever wonder what exactly was inside the briefcase in Pulp Fiction? sean tropiano's Team should use Week 7 to solve the mystery, since they certainly won't be winning. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with the third-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for sean tropiano's Team.

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..."
