    Statistical Anomaly Draft Report Card


    With a Projected Finish of Ninth, Statistical Anomaly Should Have Done Their Homework

    Draft Summary

    Statistical Anomaly was handed a solid draft position and apparently they saw that as an opportunity to blow it. Even though they had the first overall pick, they're projected to finish ninth in Stampede Blue League 5 League with a mark of 4-9-0 (1,598 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Antonio Brown (second round), Victor Cruz (third round), and T.Y. Hilton (fourth round). They have one of the worst duos of TEs in the league, as they added Kyle Rudolph and Antonio Gates.

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


    Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Statistical Anomaly has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a tougher-than-average slate. In addition to having the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Statistical Anomaly has the league's second-toughest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

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

      Statistical Anomaly must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 10, both Kyle Rudolph and Antonio Gates will be on bye.

    • A Talented Trio

      Statistical Anomaly has three positions on their roster that are stronger than the league's average (WR, RB, and K).

    • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

      With seven "low-risk" players among their 16 picks, Statistical Anomaly is looking for dependable help.

    • Fantasy FĂștbol

      This is the American version, folks. Statistical Anomaly elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.

    • Team of Champions

      Statistical Anomaly is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (LeSean McCoy, Antonio Brown, and Matthew Stafford).

    • Big D

      Statistical Anomaly elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

    Player Analysis

      • LeSean McCoy, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 1
      Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

      Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. McCoy is ranked sixth in the league with 1,626 all-purpose yards.

      • Antonio Brown, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 24
      Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law

      Antonio Brown is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 95 projected catches rank fourth in the league.

      • T.Y. Hilton, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 48
      Rethinking That One

      T.Y. Hilton went with the 48th pick, even though he's projected to fall outside of the top-20 in the NFL in both receiving TDs (28th) and receiving yards (27th) with 6.1 and 991 respectively.

      • M. Stafford, QB
      • Round 5, Pick 49
      Like a Prancing Unicorn

      Matthew Stafford is a fantasy dream. He's projected to finish third in the NFL in both passing TDs (31.5) and passing yards (4,959).

      • Pierre Thomas, RB
      • Round 6, Pick 72
      Take One Play Off and He Burns You

      Pierre Thomas is always a threat to break off a long one, ranking fourth among NFL RBs in percentage of touches over 40 yards (1.1%).

    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..."
