This draft by Keystones was like a finely tuned Peyton Manning-led offense, with all the pieces falling into place. Just like Peyton's offense, Keystones is expected to score a lot of points this season and finish second in Stupid loser League at 11-3-0 (1,576 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (7th overall), RB LeSean McCoy (39th), WR Dez Bryant (10th), and TE Antonio Gates (26th) within the first five rounds. They put together the best QB pair in the league, as they added Cam Newton and Rodgers.
Keystones should use Week 7 to finally read War and Peace. Anything that isn't following their fantasy football team. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a softer-than-average schedule. Along with having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, Keystones has the league's second-toughest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.
Good Luck With That One!
Keystones will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Kelvin Benjamin), fourth- (Randall Cobb), and fifth-ranked (Doug Baldwin) wideouts.

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.
