After Some Early Gambles, Sunday Funday Needs Some Help

Draft Summary

It's not everyday you see this type of draft performance. Sunday Funday took the first overall pick and turned it into what experts would describe as a "mediocre, if not disappointing," draft. They are projected to finish with a record of 4-9-0, good enough for a "book-a-weekend-getaway-during-the-playoffs," 11th, in Dallas Premier Football League. They ensured WR depth would be a non-issue, as they have six WRs on the roster. However, production might be the problem. Their receivers are projected to average 171 points this year, fewer than the league average of 204. They landed the lowest-scoring group of WRs in the league, as they have Golden Tate, Larry Fitzgerald, Marques Colston, and Percy Harvin for their rotation.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.


Week 9 might require some waiver-wire magic from Sunday Funday. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-challenging-than-average schedule. Sunday Funday has a chance to get off to a fast start, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average. However, their closing stretch of four games is expected to be tougher than average.

Draft Notes

  • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

    It's likely that in Week 6, Sunday Funday will either be scraping the wire or begging for a trade (Tony Romo and Jameis Winston will both be on bye). You can give Favre a call, but texting him isn't recommended.

  • Not Something to Brag About

    DEF is the only above-average position on Sunday Funday.

  • Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up

    Sunday Funday got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Sunday Funday nabbed a sleeper in Jameis Winston with pick No. 192.

  • No Back-Up Necessary

    By choosing only a single TE (Vernon Davis) and DEF (New England), Sunday Funday elected to add depth elsewhere on the roster.

  • The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Sunday Funday got a steal in snatching Martavis Bryant in the ninth round (97th overall pick vs. ADP of 63).

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 1
    Peterson is Hungry

    And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank second in the NFL with 333 touches.

    • Tony Romo, QB
    • Round 3, Pick 25
    Maybe Romo Will Surprise

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

    • L. Fitzgerald, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 72
    Was Larry Fitzgerald the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 72?

    Sunday Funday apparently thinks so. The Cardinals' wideout is projected to earn 196 points this year, after putting up 154 last year.

    • G. Bernard, RB
    • Round 7, Pick 73
    A Bit of a Reach

    Sunday Funday went out on a limb with their seventh-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Giovani Bernard has an ADP of 104.6, but he was grabbed at pick No. 73. Patience is a virtue, Sunday Funday.

Best Available

There are four positions that Sunday Funday could look to improve, including RB and TE, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Jonas Gray
    • Rank 151, ADP 121
    • Ronnie Hillman
    • Rank 156, ADP 122
    • Charles Clay
    • Rank 171, ADP 127
    • Benjamin Watson
    • Rank 173, ADP 123
  • Bye Week Points Lost

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..."
