Outstanding, Bodacious, Jaw-dropping

Andrew Luck is projected to rack up 336 points this year, enough to rank third among all QBs.

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.
