Maybe if The New Kids purchases a lift kit and some giant tires for this roster it won't seem so average. The playoffs are not out of reach for this team, but it will require some effort. They are projected to finish eighth in The Brookside Hood with a record of 5-8-0 (1,543 points). They believe QB is not only the most important position in real life, but also in fantasy, using two of their first four picks to grab QBs Ben Roethlisberger (third round) and Tom Brady (fourth round). They also built the lowest-scoring group of RBs in the league, as they added Thomas Rawls, Duke Johnson Jr., Ameer Abdullah, and Spencer Ware.
Week 8 would be a good opportunity for The New Kids to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. 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 one of the least challenging schedules. Along with having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, The New Kids also has the softest last four games of the season.

A Pair of Proven Winners
The New Kids has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Thomas Rawls and Tom Brady) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
You Snooze, You Lose
While the rest of the league slept on Tony Romo, The New Kids pounced on him at pick No. 184.
With three steals in the first 10 rounds (New England, Eric Decker, and Stephen Gostkowski), The New Kids made some shrewd moves.
- Thomas Rawls, RB
- Round 1, Pick 9
Thomas Rawls is projected to tally 1,068 yards on the ground, placing him at eighth in the NFL in that category.
All Over the Field
- Greg Olsen, TE
- Round 2, Pick 16
Greg Olsen is projected to rank among the top-5 for TEs in both receiving TDs (fourth with 6.9) and receiving yards (third with 942).
Like a Prancing Unicorn
- B. Roethlisberger, QB
- Round 3, Pick 33
Ben Roethlisberger is a fantasy dream. He's predicted to finish third in the NFL in passing TDs and second in passing yards. If he lives up to those numbers, it should mean good things for The New Kids.
Tom's Trophy Delivery Service
- Tom Brady, QB
- Round 4, Pick 40
Only Devonta Freeman appeared on more championship rosters than the 38-year-old Brady last season.
Was the 64th Pick the Right Time for Eric Decker?
- Eric Decker, WR
- Round 6, Pick 64
The New Kids apparently believes it is. The Jets' wide receiver is projected to earn 151 points this year, after putting up 173 last year.
With four subpar positions on The New Kids, RB and TE are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

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.
