When a bottom-half draft slot produces top-half results, that's the sign of an impressive effort by the GM. Such was the case with David's Team, which flipped its No. 12 overall pick into a projected 5th-place finish in WHAT?! Radio Football - IX. The team is particularly talented at receiver, as Mike Evans, D.J. Moore, and Sterling Shepard are expected to combine for the 4th-highest point total of all starting WR groups in the league. David's Team are predicted to put up a total of 1,641 points based on the current roster, which would result in a 10-4 record.
- Nyheim Hines
David's Team notched a nice late-round bargain in selecting Hines in the 12th round, about four rounds later than his ADP of 126. After a rookie season in which he rushed for 314 yards and 2 TDs and snagged 63 balls for 425 yards and 2 TDs, totaling 98 fantasy points, Hines is projected to score 143 fantasy points with the Colts. That makes him a valuable No. 3 RB for this squad.
- D.J. Moore
Everyone fancies themselves the next Andy Behrens these days, so there's no telling who inspired you to draft Moore in the 4th round, about 26 picks earlier than his ADP of 79. Granted, you could be onto something? Projected to score 148 fantasy points this season with the Panthers, he looks poised to beat his rookie year when he caught 55 passes for 788 yards and 2 TDs, posting 102 fantasy points. Moore will slot in as the No. 2 WR for David's Team, according to projections.
Week 9 will be a rude awakening for David's Team, as they have three players on a bye (Jared Goff, New Orleans, and C.J. Uzomah). 12368975.0, your Week 9 opponent, won't be quite as hamstrung with only one player (Julio Jones) on the sideline.
With a first-half strength of schedule rated as the 2nd-most difficult according to projected records, David's Team have one of the most daunting schedules in the early-going in WHAT?! Radio Football - IX. Even so, for the season as a whole, David's Team should expect a fairly balanced schedule that rates as the 9th hardest.
With an average of 4.9 years of NFL experience, ranking in the middle of the pack for the league, David's Team are balancing both youth and experience. As an example of that moderation, they didn't select any of the 20 rookies drafted.

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.
