I actually kind of liked my draft, so of course Yahoo gave me a lower grade than Hap’s robo picks

I wouldn’t sweat it. The rating system shined praise on Sphinx’s draft and noted that his best pick was Eric Ebron. I am not down on Sphinx’s team but rating the best pick on highest rated team as the poster boy for touchdown regression whose QB retired 2 weeks before the season may suggest the robot is huffing paint thinner.

Robo got a D+. That seems unfair. Why shouldn't robo produce AN AVERAGE DRAFT?

Maybe it's meant to be relative and your fellow owners are all OUTSTANDING.

Yahoo was puzzled why I might have drafted Johnson who, as far as they're concerned, will languish on the bench in Cleveland.

HAHA, WRONG YOU ARE! HE WILL LANGUISH ON THE FIELD IN HOUSTON! HAHAHAHA!

I think the auto-writer/grader was saying that the gap between the average draft position of previous Yahoo Fantasy Football drafts (77) and when Ebron was selected in our draft (113) somehow made him the "best" pick. Anyway, I waived Ebron and picked up Delaney Walker today

This is exactly that, for instance my "best" pickup was listed as AJ Green and he might be a steal but he may also miss half the season

I never felt good about Cleveland's defense but all the research I looked at told me to pick them.  Or maybe Tennessee's a better team than I reckoned.

Ha! So much for draft grades being worth a fuck. Looks like I'll finish with the lowest points total of all for week one. Ha!

My draftbot (graded itself D+) garnered me around 86, but about five points too little.

Dream Crushers vs Navin, is the most point I've seen in a couple of years. 124.06 to 131.71. Tough for Dream Crushers to score that much and lose.

Hate to see it...
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

Saquon Barkley is out for up to 8 weeks so I’m feeling great about that overall first pick

Crazy week. One guys defense outscored another guys whole team.

Half of this equation is related to the post about Barkley directly above.

My defense needs work. I'm leading the league in points allowed. SMH

Wow, a TE battle for the ages: Navin's Vance McDonald edges out my Will Dissly 033 points to 0.00 points.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed

Aaron Rogers almost single handedly beat me this week.  45 points is crazy.
Always ready to go to a game.

I got the first pick in the draft and it’s the worst team I’ve ever assembled.
