Watch out for Prestige Worldwide. Taking advantage of a solid draft spot (sixth overall), they built a team poised to do some damage in Official WrestleCrap Thunder League. Prestige Worldwide is expected to finish second with a record of 10-3-0 (1,495 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (30th overall), RB LeSean McCoy (6th), WR Allen Robinson (43rd), and TE Jordan Reed (54th) within the first five rounds. They've ultimately got the most prolific set of RBs in the league, as they have McCoy, Todd Gurley, Paul Perkins, and Bilal Powell for their rotation.
Prestige Worldwide should use Week 8 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why don't the pants worn by Dr. Bruce Banner rip when he transforms into the Hulk? It's better to think about that than pay attention to fantasy football. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the least-difficult slates. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, Prestige Worldwide also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.
Because Three Running Backs Wouldn't be Enough
Prestige Worldwide drafted four RBs, even though only a couple can be started each week.
Like Choosing Your Favorite Jonas Brother
Prestige Worldwide will have some tough decisions to make each week at RB, with a small projected points difference between their second- (Todd Gurley), third- (Paul Perkins), and fourth-ranked (Bilal Powell) RBs.
Carrying the Load
Prestige Worldwide has four above-average positions with RB and TE projected to lead the way.
Up, Up, and Away
With five players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Prestige Worldwide hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.
Team of Champions
Prestige Worldwide 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 (LeSean McCoy, Aaron Rodgers, and Jordan Reed).
Better Late Than Never
Prestige Worldwide finished on a high note, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
McCoy is Hungry
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 1, Pick 6
And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank ninth in the NFL with 277 touches.
- Todd Gurley, RB
- Round 2, Pick 19
Prestige Worldwide stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, nabbing LeSean McCoy and Todd Gurley right off the bat.
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 3, Pick 30
Rodgers was the only quarterback to pass for 40 touchdowns last season, and among QBs, only Tom Brady appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters.
Rethinking That One
- Allen Robinson, WR
- Round 4, Pick 43
While drafted 43rd overall, Allen Robinson isn't projected among the NFL's top-20 in either receiving TDs (28th with 7.7) or receiving yards (22nd with 1,040).
- Jordan Reed, TE
- Round 5, Pick 54
When healthy, you start him. Reed continued rewarding owners last year, despite taking a noticeable step back from his outstanding 2015 campaign. Among all NFL tight ends, only Jimmy Graham appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters.
If Prestige Worldwide has a desire to make a roster move, WR and K are areas of need.
- Marqise Lee
- Rank 158, ADP 130
- Tyler Lockett
- Rank 162, ADP 128
- Chandler Catanzaro
- Rank 227, ADP 130
- Josh Lambo
- Rank 229, ADP 136

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.
