JV_Waterboy Draft Report Card


Loaded With Colts, JV_Waterboy Looks Like a Playoff Squad

Draft Summary

JV_Waterboy took a high draft pick and turned it into a playoff-caliber squad with a projected record of 7-6-0 (1,392). They should be able to roll through most of Takataboyz League on their way to a projected sixth-place finish. With their first five picks, JV_Waterboy focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Andrew Luck (3rd overall), RBs Frank Gore (22nd) and Latavius Murray (46th), and WRs T.Y. Hilton (27th) and Andre Johnson (51st). They landed one of the most prolific QB duos in the league, as they added Luck and Jay Cutler.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


JV_Waterboy should drop off the grid during Week 10. They have eight players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a tougher-than-average slate. JV_Waterboy has the opportunity to finish the season on a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • Maybe You Should Add Tony Gonzalez While You're At It

    JV_Waterboy must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 10, both Vernon Davis and Coby Fleener will be on bye.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    JV_Waterboy might require waiver wire help in Week 10, as their No. 1- (T.Y. Hilton), No. 2- (Andre Johnson) and No. 4-ranked (Roddy White) WRs will all be idle that week.

  • An Indianapolis Colts Homer

    The fantasy hopes of JV_Waterboy will rest heavily on the fortunes of the Colts, as they drafted five of them to their squad.

  • A Dominating Duo

    JV_Waterboy has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

Player Analysis

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    Making Sure Luck's on Your Side

    Any questions about Luck's development were silenced last season, as the Colts' signal-caller firmly establsihed himself among fantasy's elite.

    • Frank Gore, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 22
    Frank Gore Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. JV_Waterboy should be in decent shape if Gore gets his 289 projected touches this year.

    • Andre Johnson, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 51
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, JV_Waterboy got a steal in snatching Andre Johnson in the fifth round (51st overall pick vs. ADP of 39.9).

    • Alfred Blue, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 70
    Let Me Check it Again

    Why can't I find Alfred Blue on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round flier."

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 7, Pick 75
    Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in Takataboyz League, JV_Waterboy may have found a gem in Jarvis Landry. Including his 1,218 projected return yards, he ranks first in the league with 2,170 all-purpose yards.

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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
