Watch out for MOJO. Taking advantage of a solid draft spot (fourth overall), they built a team poised to do some damage in The Rubber Band aka La Liga League. MOJO is expected to finish second with a record of 10-3-0 (2,312 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Antonio Brown (first round), Dez Bryant (second round), and Alshon Jeffery (fourth round). MOJO will rely heavily on this group, as they are the most prolific group of WRs in the league.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, MOJO has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the easiest slates. Corresponding with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, MOJO also has the softest last four games of the season.
A Triumvirate of Talent
MOJO has three above-average positions on their roster (WR, DEF, and QB).
With an average of just 3.7 years of NFL experience, MOJO has assembled the youngest team in the league.
Up and Comers
Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and MOJO may have done just that, with five players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.
The top half of the MOJO roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 3). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 11).
A Pair With Potential
Alvin Kamara and Josh Doctson are a couple of late-round fliers with intriguing upside for MOJO.
Alvin Kamara is owned in only 1% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) MOJO has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.
MOJO Found Their WR1
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 4
Among all wide receivers, only Mike Evans and Jordy Nelson appeared on more championship rosters than Brown last season.
Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law
- Dez Bryant, WR
- Round 2, Pick 21
Dez Bryant is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 94 projected catches rank fifth in the league.
Wait For It
- C. McCaffrey, RB
- Round 3, Pick 28
MOJO held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to snag their "lead back" (Christian McCaffrey).
Taking a Chance
- Tevin Coleman, RB
- Round 6, Pick 69
With their sixth-round pick, MOJO threw caution to the wind. They took Tevin Coleman at pick number 69 despite an ADP of 88.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.
- Marcus Mariota, QB
- Round 7, Pick 76
MOJO may have found a gem in the seventh round, grabbing Marcus Mariota (76th overall pick vs. ADP of 57).
With three subpar positions on MOJO, TE and K are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.
- Austin Hooper
- Rank 126, ADP 134
- Cameron Brate
- Rank 132, ADP 131
- Sebastian Janikowski
- Rank 184, ADP 110
- Stephen Hauschka
- Rank 195, ADP 112

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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
