With a great draft pick, comes great responsibility. Rather than choking away the top draft spot, Mike's Team buckled down and created a powerhouse. They will look to cause total mayhem in Family Fantasy FB League where projections forecast a first place finish with a mark of 12-2-0 (1,893 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Russell Wilson (17th overall), RB Jamaal Charles (16th), WR Antonio Brown (1st), and TE Rob Gronkowski (8th) within the first five rounds. They ended up with the top group of WRs in the league, as they have Brown, A.J. Green, Alshon Jeffery, and Sammy Watkins on their team.
Week 5 may not be very fun for Mike's Team, as their top two projected scorers (Russell Wilson and Drew Brees) will be off with byes. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the softest slate.
Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away
Mike's Team grabbed a couple of QBs (Russell Wilson and Drew Brees) that'll both be on bye in Week 5, and will be looking for a signal-caller. You can call Brett, but texting him isn't exactly recommended.
The Cream Rises to the Top
At three different positions, Mike's Team snagged projected points leaders (Antonio Brown, Rob Gronkowski, and Denver).
May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor
Mike's Team might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Russell Wilson) and second-drafted QB (Drew Brees) have similar seasonal point projections.
Mike's Team minimized risk by choosing nine consistent players among their 15 picks.
The top half of the Mike's Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 3).
Team of Champions
Mike's Team is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Antonio Brown, Rob Gronkowski, and Mark Ingram).
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 1
Mike's Team fully endorses the wideout's quest for 150 receptions in 2016. Shoot for the moon, Mr. Brown. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Rob Gronkowski, TE
- Round 2, Pick 8
Rob Gronkowski was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
186 Excuses to Cheer for A.J. Green
- A.J. Green, WR
- Round 3, Pick 9
Green ranks sixth in the Family Fantasy FB League among wideouts with 186 projected fantasy points.
Wait For It
- Jamaal Charles, RB
- Round 4, Pick 16
Mike's Team held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to snag their "lead back" (Jamaal Charles).
Effective, Efficient, and Elite
- Russell Wilson, QB
- Round 5, Pick 17
Wilson joined Brady and Rodgers as the only QBs to throw for more than 25 touchdowns and have fewer than 10 interceptions last season.
If Mike's Team has a desire to make a roster move, K and WR are areas of need.
- Graham Gano
- Rank 213, ADP 84
- Connor Barth
- Rank 215, ADP 87
- Doug Baldwin
- Rank 40, ADP 46
- Randall Cobb
- Rank 41, ADP 45

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.
