Meat Loaf once told USA Today that he had to file an extension because he chose to put together his fantasy-player draft list rather than work on his income-tax filing. The manager of Neffs Ball Blasters should aim for that level of dedication next time, as they're projected to finish ninth in steely mcbeams sausages League with a record of 5-8-0 (1,942 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Jordy Nelson (second round), T.Y. Hilton (third round), and Larry Fitzgerald (fifth round). They ultimately have the weakest TE combo in the league, as they have Eric Ebron and Jason Witten.
Ever wonder what exactly was inside the briefcase in Pulp Fiction? Neffs Ball Blasters should use Week 8 to solve the mystery, since they certainly won't be winning. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the hardest slates. In addition to having the third-most taxing overall schedule, Neffs Ball Blasters also has the toughest first four games of the season.
RB is the strongest position for Neffs Ball Blasters, though WR and QB aren't too shabby either.
Team of Champions
Neffs Ball Blasters is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy rosters, including Melvin Gordon, Jordy Nelson, and T.Y. Hilton.
Low Floor, High Ceiling?
Neffs Ball Blasters grabbed a sleeper in Corey Davis with pick No. 179.
Tuck It And Run
Taylor is projected to deliver 493 rushing yards, and ranks first among QBs in that category.
Gordon is Hungry
- Melvin Gordon, RB
- Round 1, Pick 11
And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank fifth in the NFL with 298 touches.
- Jordy Nelson, WR
- Round 2, Pick 14
Jordy Nelson returned to form last year after missing all of 2015. The Packers wideout led the league in red zone targets, and only Mike Evans appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters last season.
- T.Y. Hilton, WR
- Round 3, Pick 35
If other Yahoo! users are right, Neffs Ball Blasters got a steal in the third round, when they selected T.Y. Hilton (35th overall pick vs. ADP of 22).
A Multifaceted Machine
- Ty Montgomery, RB
- Round 4, Pick 38
Montgomery is a dual-threat back for Neffs Ball Blasters, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fifth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 531.
Let Me Check it Again
- L. Fitzgerald, WR
- Round 5, Pick 59
Why can't I find Larry Fitzgerald on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late-round flier."
Neffs Ball Blasters could potentially upgrade TE and DEF, but TE is the position they'll want to focus on first.
- Antonio Gates
- Rank 143, ADP 132
- David Njoku
- Rank 194, ADP 131
- Jared Cook
- Rank 210, ADP 128
- Charles Clay
- Rank 215, ADP 126

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.
