When a bottom-half draft slot leads to top-half results, that's the sign of a strong effort by the GM. Such was the case with Glen's Fabulous Team, which flipped its No. 7 overall pick into a projected 5th-place finish in Yahoo Public 50722. The team is particularly tough at wide receiver, as DeAndre Hopkins and Odell Beckham Jr. are slated to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting WR groups in the league. Glen's Fabulous Team are predicted to put up a total of 1,889 points based on the current roster, which would result in a 7-7 record.
- Todd Gurley II
What a great early-round bargain for Glen's Fabulous Team, who selected Gurley II with the 4th pick in the 4th round, about two rounds later than his ADP of 19. Following a season in which he ran for 1,251 yards and 17 TDs and grabbed 59 balls for 580 yards and 4 TDs in 14 games, totaling 343 fantasy points, Gurley II is projected to score 267 fantasy points with the Rams. That makes him a valuable No. 1 RB for this squad.
- Tevin Coleman
Going out on a Limb
We're going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you fell asleep right before the selection of Coleman with the 4th pick in the 6th round, about 25 slots earlier than his ADP of 79. Projected to score 165 fantasy points this season with the 49ers, he'll need to outperform expectations to improve upon last year when he rushed for 800 yards and 4 TDs and had 32 catches for 276 yards and 5 TDs to post 178 fantasy points. Coleman will slot in as the No. 2 RB for Glen's Fabulous Team, based on projections.
Patience is a virtue. With the selection of RB Todd Gurley II (No. 34 overall), you became the last owner in the league to draft a running back.
Glen's Fabulous Team are in for a rude awakening in Week 10 when they have four players on a bye (DeAndre Hopkins, Alshon Jeffery, Derrius Guice, and Ka'imi Fairbairn). Perhaps leveling the playing field, your Week 10 opponent -- Degenerates -- will also be confronting their worst bye week with five players on the sideline.
Based on projections, Glen's Fabulous Team have one of the most challenging schedules in Yahoo Public 50722 this season with a strength of schedule ranked as the 3rd-most difficult. All is not lost, though. Strength of schedule says nothing about the strength of your team. There are countless ways to improve throughout the season as long as you stay active.
In spite of openings on offense at QB, RB, and TE in the 3rd round, Glen's Fabulous Team selected WR Antonio Brown at No. 27, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a higher leverage position. They were the second squad to fill a flex position.

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.
