Even though ScrivCo didn't have a high draft pick (sixth overall), it didn't matter, as they built a legit squad capable of taking it to any opponent that gets in their way. As far as projections go, they will probably finish first in WALKER'S FOOTBALL League with a record of 11-2-0 (1,678 points). With their first five picks, ScrivCo focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Drew Brees (6th overall), RBs Eddie Lacy (15th) and Jonathan Stewart (26th), and WRs Antonio Brown (35th) and Mike Evans (46th). They ended up with the top group of WRs in the league, as they have Brown, Evans, T.Y. Hilton, and Golden Tate on their team.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, ScrivCo has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the softest schedule. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, ScrivCo also has the league's second-easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Don't Get Defensive Over This
But ScrivCo drafted Green Bay with the 86th pick, even though their ADP is only 132.8 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Tyler Boyd is owned in only 2% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) ScrivCo has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

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.
