St. Pauli Girl Draft Report Card


Despite Reaching for a Few Early-Rounders, St. Pauli Girl Crushed This Draft

Draft Summary

St. Pauli Girl had the unfortunate honor of picking ninth overall. It is unclear whether it was luck or monk-level concentration, but St. Pauli Girl did well and is projected to finish second in FFL 2015 League with 2,482 points and a record of 10-3-0. They addressed the QB position early, using their first two picks on QBs Russell Wilson (9th overall) and Peyton Manning (12th). They ended up with the lowest-scoring group of RBs in the league, as they added Melvin Gordon, C.J. Spiller, and Ameer Abdullah.

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


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, St. Pauli Girl has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. Despite having the fifth-easiest overall schedule, St. Pauli Girl actually has the league's second-toughest first four games and second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • QB or Bust

    QB is the only stronger-than-average position group for St. Pauli Girl.

  • The Best Player Plays

    St. Pauli Girl is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 4.3 years of NFL experience.

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Nelson Agholor, St. Pauli Girl pounced on him at pick No. 129.

  • Beginning with a Bang

    St. Pauli Girl got off to a sizzling start, amassing the most projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • St. Pauli Girl Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Lavonte David at pick 89 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. David is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

  • A Little Aggressive in Flag-Football Leagues?

    Former Bronco Karl Mecklenburg once dropped this nugget: “Defensively, I think it's important for us to tackle.” Among LBs in FFL 2015 League, Lavonte David ranks second in projected tackles with 166.

Player Analysis

    • Russell Wilson, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 9
    Knowing When to Take Off

    He won't get too flashy in the passing game, but the ability to create with his legs makes Wilson a legitimate threat to NFL defenses -- and to future fantasy opponents of St. Pauli Girl.

    • Peyton Manning, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 12
    Like a Prancing Unicorn

    Peyton Manning is a fantasy dream. He's predicted to finish third in the NFL in passing TDs and fifth in passing yards.

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 29
    On a Scale of 1 to America

    How free will A.J. Green get in the secondary this year? He's projected to reel in 1,197 receiving yards.

    • Mike Evans, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 32
    294 More Reasons to Appreciate Mike Evans

    Evans ranks 10th in the FFL 2015 League among WRs with 294 projected fantasy points.

    • Melvin Gordon, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 49
    How Rebellious of You

    St. Pauli Girl said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fifth round to pick up their first (Melvin Gordon).

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..."
