Big East Player Grades

 

I've graded each Big East starter based on projected stats and overall talent. Along with a bench grade, each team has a potential score of 60.0.  Teams are ranked according to the sum of the player grades, but these do not necessarily match my personal team predictions. The projected stats are from CHN's Fantasy Stats Preview. Each team's top graded player is highlighted in red.
