Jedi Draft Report Card


In Spite of Some Early-Round Reaches, Jedi Is a Team to Keep an Eye On

Draft Summary

Jedi figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the third overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 8-6-0 (2,045 points). With that record, they will likely finish fourth in L O B League. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Aaron Rodgers (3rd overall), RBs C.J. Anderson (14th) and DeMarco Murray (19th), and WRs Alshon Jeffery (30th) and Martavis Bryant (35th). They ended up with the best QB tandem in the league, as they added Rodgers and Eli Manning.

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


Jedi should use Week 7 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like what was the greatest thing before sliced bread? No, seriously, think about it. It's better than thinking about fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the hardest slates. Along with having the second-most demanding overall schedule, Jedi has the toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    Jedi has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (C.J. Anderson and DeMarco Murray) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Tevin Coleman, Jedi pounced on him at pick No. 126.

  • Did Stretch Armstrong Make That Pick?

    Grabbing Morgan Burnett at pick 78 was definitely a reach. Burnett is owned on just a handful of teams across all Yahoo! leagues.

  • A DB Who Could Probably be a Linebacker

    Morgan Burnett ranks first among Safeties with 129 projected tackles.

Player Analysis

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    Amazing Aaron

    Though he attempted 32.5 passes per game (just 22nd in the league), Rodgers threw for the seventh-most yards (4,381) and third-most TDs (38) last season. A whopping 33 QBs tossed more interceptions than Rodgers' five.

    • C.J. Anderson, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 303 touches, C.J. Anderson is projected to rank eighth in the NFL in that category. How touching, Jedi.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 19
    DeMarco Da Man

    Across all Yahoo! leagues, only one Running Back (Le'Veon Bell) showed up on more first-place rosters than Murray last season.

    • Alshon Jeffery, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 30
    264 Excuses to Cheer for Alshon Jeffery

    Jeffery ranks eighth in the L O B League among wideouts with 264 projected fantasy points.

    • M. Bryant, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 35
    Let Me Check it Again

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

Best Available

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..."
