Although they ended up with the No. 8 overall selection, Mr. Fantasy's Awesome Team remained unfazed, building a roster capable of topping any team in Yahoo Public 987595. Mr. Fantasy's Awesome Team are predicted to finish with a record of 12-3 (2,063 points), good enough for 2nd.
- Mike Davis
What a mid-round bargain for Mr. Fantasy's Awesome Team, who selected Davis at No. 88, about two rounds later than his ADP of 66. After a season in which he rushed for 642 yards and 6 TDs and had 59 catches for 373 yards and 2 TDs, totaling 177 fantasy points, Davis is projected to score 164 fantasy points with the Falcons. That makes him a valuable No. 3 RB for this squad.
- Clyde Edwards-Helaire
Going out on a Limb
It seems everyone is a self-anointed fantasy expert these days, so there's no telling who led you to choose Edwards-Helaire with the 3rd pick in the 2nd round, about 10 slots earlier than his ADP of 23. Then again, you might be onto something? Projected to score 263 fantasy points this season with the Chiefs, he appears set to beat his rookie year when he ran for 803 yards and 4 TDs and recorded 36 receptions for 297 yards and 1 TD over 13 games, earning 158 fantasy points. According to projections, Edwards-Helaire will slot in as the No. 2 RB for Mr. Fantasy's Awesome Team to begin the season.
Week 7 will be a rude awakening for Mr. Fantasy's Awesome Team, as they have three players on a bye (Josh Allen, Ezekiel Elliott, and Diontae Johnson). Luckily, Ed's Excellent Team, your Week 7 opponent, will be tackling a similar conundrum with three players (Dak Prescott, Justin Jefferson, and Irv Smith Jr.) on a bye.
Based on projected records, Mr. Fantasy's Awesome Team have one of the least challenging schedules in Yahoo Public 987595 this season with a strength of schedule rated as the 3rd easiest.

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.
