Led by a Quality Group of RBs, Statistical Anomaly Will Likely Reach Playoffs

Draft Summary

Statistical Anomaly parlayed a solid draft slot (second overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 8-5-0 (1,602 points), they're projected to finish fifth in Stampede Blue League 6 League. They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Antonio Brown (second round), Andre Johnson (third round), and Michael Crabtree (fourth round). They have one of the best groups of RBs in the league, as they added Matt Forte, Reggie Bush, Danny Woodhead, and Jacquizz Rodgers.

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

Schedule

Statistical Anomaly might as well plan a vacation for Week 10. They have seven players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Corresponding with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Statistical Anomaly also has the most difficult 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.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Statistical Anomaly might require waiver wire help in Week 9, as their No. 1- (Matt Forte), No. 2- (Reggie Bush) and No. 4-ranked (Jacquizz Rodgers) RBs will all be idle that week.

  • Shouldering the Burden

    Statistical Anomaly has four above-average positions with RB and DEF projected to lead the way.

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    Statistical Anomaly drafted top-3 players at a trio of different positions (Stephen Gostkowski, Matt Forte, and Carolina).

  • Officially Mediocre

    While the bottom half of the Statistical Anomaly roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 2), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).

  • Fantasy FĂștbol

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

Player Analysis

    • Matt Forte, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    Does Matt Forte Enjoy Fajitas?

    Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Forte is projected to rank fourth in the league with 1,698 all-purpose yards.

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 23
    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.

    • M. Crabtree, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 47
    Rethinking That One

    While drafted 47th overall, Michael Crabtree isn't projected among the NFL's top-30 in either receiving TDs (32nd with 5.9) or receiving yards (36th with 915).

    • Reggie Bush, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 50
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    Reggie Bush was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

    • Kyle Rudolph, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 71
    Was Kyle Rudolph Worth Pick No. 71?

    Statistical Anomaly apparently thinks so. The Vikings' TE is projected to improve to the tune of 162 points this year, after only putting up 79 last season.

Best Available

TE and QB are expected to be the worst positions for Statistical Anomaly and a potential area of need.

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..."
