well. we (VA Rams) came in with the worst rating a "C."

Here is what they have to say about us:

Draft Grade: C

Ouch. Prove these ratings wrong by nominating yourself for the Toyota Hall of Fame.

The poor draft position for VA Rams proved too great an obstacle to overcome. After selecting ninth overall, they're projected to finish 10th in The Boobie League with a record of 2-12-0 (1,288 points). VA Rams was quick to scoop up a pair of passers, using two of their first four picks to grab QBs Aaron Rodgers (first round) and Peyton Manning (fourth round). Going hand-in-hand with that early investment, they acquired the best pair of QBs in the league.

The Season Ahead

With the most players (4) and most projected fantasy points on bye, Week 9 figures to be a difficult one for VA Rams. From the perspective of opponents' projected points, they have the toughest schedule in The Boobie League. Corresponding with the most grueling overall schedule, VA Rams also has the league's toughest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season. An especially difficult stretch might begin in Week 7, when VA Rams battles the projected top-tier teams for two straight games.

Draft Notes
Strongest Position: QB is one of two positional groups projected to beat their slot's league average on VA Rams (along with TE). Of the two groups, QB is projected to be the best unit on the squad, topping the league average for that position by 17.6%.
On Autopilot: Picking starting RBs should be an academic exercise most weeks for VA Rams, as there's a healthy projected points difference between their third-ranked (Rashard Mendenhall) and fourth-ranked (BenJarvus Green-Ellis) RBs.
Doing It By Committee: By picking up a pair of San Diego Chargers RBs in the middle rounds of the draft (Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead), VA Rams will be hoping there are enough fantasy points to go around in that backfield.
Hit the Waiver Wire: VA Rams will need to get busy on the waiver wire in Week 11, as their only TE (Jared Cook) and only K (Greg Zuerlein) will both be off that week.
Consistency Is My Middle Name: With five consistent players among their 15 picks, VA Rams is looking for reliable help.
Digging Deep: Isaac Redman is owned in less than 10% of all Yahoo! leagues (1%). Perhaps he will reward VA Rams for their faith.
