Having the top pick in the draft doesn't always lead to championships. It very well could in this case, though. Ed's Excellent Team did what top-tier fantasy managers do when they land the No. 1 overall pick. They built a juggernaut. The team is particularly strong at the running back position, as Christian McCaffrey and J.K. Dobbins are expected to combine for the highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. Ed's Excellent Team are predicted to finish in first place in Yahoo Public 987595 with a mark of 14-1 (2,157 points).
- Chase Edmonds
Ed's Excellent Team notched a great mid-round value in picking Edmonds at No. 81, about two rounds later than his ADP of 68. After a season in which he ran for 448 yards and 1 TD and had 53 catches for 402 yards and 4 TDs, totaling 142 fantasy points, Edmonds is projected to score 179 fantasy points with the Cardinals. That makes him a valuable No. 4 RB for this squad.
- Dak Prescott
Going out on a Limb
Do you know something we don't? We're not sure why else you would choose Prescott in the 5th round, about 11 picks earlier than his ADP of 52. You might be onto something, though. Projected to score 396 fantasy points this season with the Cowboys, he looks set to take a step forward from last year when he threw for 1,856 yards and 9 TDs with 4 INTs in 5 games to earn 139 fantasy points. Prescott will slot in as the No. 1 QB for Ed's Excellent Team, based on projections.
With the selections of Mike Evans, Ronald Jones II, and Ryan Succop, Ed's Excellent Team had the highest number of Buccaneers of any team in the league. The Buccaneers were also popular with your opponents, as eight of them were selected in the draft, more than any other NFL team.
Week 11 could bring a difficult challenge for Ed's Excellent Team, as they have four players on a bye (Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp, Jerry Jeudy, and Noah Fant). TEALL's Tip-Top Team, your Week 11 opponent, will have an abundance of options without any players getting the week off.
With a strength of schedule ranked as the easiest based on projections, Ed's Excellent Team have drawn a straightforward path in Yahoo Public 987595 this season. But don't get complacent. For managers who fail to stay involved, even the lightest schedules can present issues.
Even with an opening remaining at TE in the 6th round, Ed's Excellent Team drafted RB Ronald Jones II at No. 60, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a position of greater importance.

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.
