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.
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.
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).
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).
This is the American version, folks. Statistical Anomaly elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.
Does Matt Forte Enjoy Fajitas?
- Matt Forte, RB
- Round 1, Pick 2
Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Forte is projected to rank fourth in the league with 1,698 all-purpose yards.
Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 2, Pick 23
Antonio Brown is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 95 projected catches rank fourth in the league.
Rethinking That One
- M. Crabtree, WR
- Round 4, Pick 47
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).
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Reggie Bush, RB
- Round 5, Pick 50
Reggie Bush was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
Was Kyle Rudolph Worth Pick No. 71?
- Kyle Rudolph, TE
- Round 6, Pick 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.
TE and QB are expected to be the worst positions for Statistical Anomaly and a potential area of need.
- Tim Wright
- Rank 174, ADP 139
- Coby Fleener
- Rank 179, ADP 137
- Ryan Tannehill
- Rank 147, ADP 134
- Sam Bradford
- Rank 178, ADP 125

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.
