Led by an Elite Group of RBs, Travis's Nice Team Has Look of a Playoff Team

Draft Summary

Travis's Nice Team parlayed a solid draft slot (first overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 9-5-0 (1,593 points), they're projected to finish third in Yahoo Public 828456 League. They wanted to shore up any RB concerns early, using three of their first five draft picks to draft RBs Jamaal Charles (second round), Devonta Freeman (third round), and Latavius Murray (fifth round). They also have the top WR combo in the league, as they added Antonio Brown and Kelvin Benjamin.

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


Week 5 might require some artful managing from Travis's Nice Team. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the weakest schedules. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, Travis's Nice Team has the softest last four games of the season.

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.
