Slated for a Fifth-Place Finish, How's My Sack Taste? Can Compete With Anyone

Draft Summary

When a bottom-half draft slot yields top-half results, that's the sign of a strong effort by the GM. Such was the case with How's My Sack Taste?, which flipped its 11th overall pick into a projected fifth-place finish in Family matters League (7-6-0, 2,004 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Russell Wilson (38th overall), RB Jamaal Charles (35th), WR Brandon Marshall (14th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (11th) within the first five rounds. They also have one of the highest-scoring QB pairs in the league, as they have Wilson and Matthew Stafford on the roster.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


How's My Sack Taste? should use Week 5 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why do we park in a driveway but drive on a parkway? It will be better to think about that than to check fantasy football. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a harder-than-average slate. How's My Sack Taste? has a chance to come out of the gate hot and close strong, as both the first four games and final four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

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.
