You know what, Rosemary Victorious, maybe you should just hold off on pursuing your dreams for a while. Maybe just ask them where they're going and hook up with 'em later, when you have a team capable of winning. Rosemary Victorious is projected to finish 10th in Nitty Gritty Dirt League with a record of 2-12-0 (1,411 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs DeAndre Hopkins (first round), A.J. Green (second round), and T.Y. Hilton (fourth round). They also have one of the bottom groups of RBs in the league, as they added Eddie Lacy, Jeremy Hill, and Ameer Abdullah to the team.

In addition to having the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Rosemary Victorious also has the easiest first four games of the season.
Decent Idea, Mediocre Execution

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.
