Coinciding with Some Early-Round Reaches, Statistical Anomaly Should Have Paid for Expert Advice

Draft Summary

Picking 11th, Statistical Anomaly built a team that probably isn't even worth talking about. It wouldn't be fair to give the good teams a recap and not the bad ones, though, so here goes. They are expected to finish 11th in Stampede Blue League 3 League with a record of 3-10-0 (1,566 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Drew Brees (11th overall), RB Reggie Bush (59th), WR Antonio Brown (14th), and TE Julius Thomas (35th) within the first five rounds. They put together one of the most prolific QB combos in the league, as they have Brees and Carson Palmer on the roster.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

Week 9 might require some waiver-wire magic from Statistical Anomaly. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the toughest schedules. Along with having the third-most grueling overall schedule, Statistical Anomaly has the most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • A Talented Trio

    Statistical Anomaly has three above-average positions on their roster (QB, TE, and WR).

  • Team of Champions

    Statistical Anomaly is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams, including Drew Brees, Antonio Brown, and Julius Thomas.

  • Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in Stampede Blue League 3 League, Statistical Anomaly may have found a gem in Darren Sproles. Including his 994 projected return yards, he ranks sixth in the league with 1,667 all-purpose yards.

  • Mr. Mendoza

    Andre Williams is owned in only 4% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Statistical Anomaly has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 11
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, Drew Brees was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    The Power of Persuasion

    Now would be a reasonable time for Statistical Anomaly to encourage the Stampede Blue League 3 League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Antonio Brown and his 95 projected catches (ranked fourth in the NFL).

    • Julius Thomas, TE
    • Round 3, Pick 35
    The Tightest of Ends

    Julius Thomas is projected to rank among the top-5 for TEs in both receiving TDs (third with 8) and receiving yards (fifth with 805).

    • Andre Johnson, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 38
    On a Scale of 1 to America

    How free will Andre Johnson get in the secondary this year? He's projected to reel in 1,172 receiving yards.

    • Reggie Bush, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 59
    If it Ain't Broke

    Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Statistical Anomaly didn't grab their first RB (Reggie Bush) until the fifth round.

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..."
