It doesn't matter how you get to the playoffs, it only matters that you get there. lil boxes is a squad built to get there and is projected to finish fifth in The League 2016 League with a record of 6-7-0 (1,704 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Odell Beckham Jr. (first round), Eric Decker (fourth round), and Randall Cobb (fifth round). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, lil boxes will benefit. They are one of the best groups of WRs in the league.

Corresponding with the fifth-easiest overall schedule, lil boxes also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

How We Grade
Draft grades are based strictly on teams' draft performances.

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.
