For some the eighth overall pick is a challenge, for others it's a blessing, but for My Team Names Suck it looks to be a curse and an early indicator of the season ahead. Most teams in the league will pick up an easy win against My Team Names Suck, resulting in their projected 2-11-0 record (1,962 points) and ninth-place finish in The Non-Tim's SCN League. They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Derek Carr (28th overall), RBs LeSean McCoy (8th) and Lamar Miller (48th), and WRs Mike Evans (13th) and Doug Baldwin (33rd). They wound up with one of the best groups of WRs in the league, as they have Baldwin, Evans, Davante Adams, and Pierre Garcon on their team.

239 Excuses to Cheer for Doug Baldwin

Baldwin ranks sixth in the The Non-Tim's SCN League among wideouts with 239 projected fantasy points.
Let Me Check it Again
- Carson Wentz, QB
- Round 6, Pick 53
Why can't I find Carson Wentz on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late-round flier."
While My Team Names Suck is projected to have four below-average positions, TE is clearly their weakest unit and should be upgraded first.

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.
