Blessed with a solid draft position (No. 2 overall), expectations were high for Scottj's Brilliant Team. However, those expectations vanished quickly after they drafted, as this team is headed for an unexceptional 6th-place finish in Yahoo Public 987595. Scottj's Brilliant Team are predicted to post a record of 7-8 (1,952 points).
- Zack Moss
What a late-round bargain for Scottj's Brilliant Team, who selected Moss at No. 139, about four rounds later than his ADP of 103. Following a rookie season in which he rushed for 481 yards and 4 TDs and hauled in 14 balls for 95 yards and 1 TD in 13 games, totaling 95 fantasy points, Moss is projected to score 183 fantasy points with the Bills. That makes him a valuable No. 4 RB for this squad.
- Daniel Jones
You must know something everybody else doesn't. We're not sure why else you would draft Jones with the 2nd pick in the 13th round, about 11 slots earlier than his ADP of 133. Then again, perhaps you're onto something? Projected to score 322 fantasy points this season with the Giants, he seems set to surpass last year when he threw for 2,943 yards and 11 TDs with 10 interceptions and rushed for 423 yards and 1 TD over 14 games, earning 190 fantasy points. But do you really need so many QBs? After all, you can only start one at a time. Jones will slot in as the No. 2 QB for Scottj's Brilliant Team, based on projections.
Scottj's Brilliant Team are particularly thin at tight end, drafting fewer than any other team in the league with just one, lagging the league average of 1.9.
Week 7 will bring on a case of the Bye Week Blues for Scottj's Brilliant Team, as they have five players on a bye (Dalvin Cook, Amari Cooper, Zack Moss, Greg Zuerlein, and Pittsburgh). Fortunately, Zachary's Boss Team, your Week 7 opponent, will be facing a similar struggle with four players on the sideline.
With a first-half strength of schedule that rates as the 2nd-easiest based on projected records, Scottj's Brilliant Team have one of the best schedules early in the season in Yahoo Public 987595. Despite that, for the full season, Scottj's Brilliant Team have drawn a fairly balanced schedule rated as the 7th toughest.
Even with unfilled positions at QB, WR, and TE in the 3rd round, Scottj's Brilliant Team selected RB Joe Mixon with the 22nd pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a position of greater need. They were the second squad to fill a flex position.

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.
