Putting together a playoff-caliber roster, Glory Hole Days didn't break any records with this draft, but they put together a quality team that will be tough to match up against. Looking at their schedule, they figure to reach the playoffs with a 9-4-0 (1,553) record and sixth-place finish in Teke Football League XVII-A League. They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (28th overall), RB Jeremy Langford (56th), WR Antonio Brown (1st), and TE Travis Kelce (57th) within the first five rounds. They also have the most prolific group of WRs in the league, as they added Brown, Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and Stefon Diggs.
While Week 9 has the most players on bye for Glory Hole Days (six), Week 8 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least difficult slates. Glory Hole Days has the opportunity to exit the gates quickly, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Just Like Choosing Your Favorite Taylor Swift Song
Glory Hole Days will have some tricky calls to make each week at RB, with a slim projected points difference between their third- (Jay Ajayi), fourth- (James White), and fifth-ranked (James Starks) RBs.
Separating the Wheat from the Chaff
Glory Hole Days drafted top-3 players at a trio of different positions (Antonio Brown, Justin Tucker, and Aaron Rodgers).
Up, Up, and Away
With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Glory Hole Days hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, Glory Hole Days chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
Glory Hole Days may have found a gem in the ninth round, grabbing Jay Ajayi (113th overall pick vs. ADP of 98.2).
James White is owned in only 2% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward Glory Hole Days for their faith! Or not.

How Rebellious of You
- J. Langford, RB

Glory Hole Days said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (Jeremy Langford).
Was Chris Ivory the Best Choice at Pick No. 84?
- Chris Ivory, RB
- Round 6, Pick 84
Glory Hole Days apparently thinks so. The Jaguars' RB is projected to put up only 119 points this year, after netting 173 last season.

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.
