Appstate parrotheads Draft Report Card


Led by an Elite Group of RBs, Appstate parrotheads Will Be a Juggernaut

Draft Summary

Watch out. Somebody let Appstate parrotheads loose in the draft room. When the smoke cleared, all that was left was an elite squad capable of destroying opponents at will. They are projected to finish second in stanly docs League with a record of 10-4-0 (1,483 points). With their first five picks, Appstate parrotheads aimed for balance, selecting QB Tom Brady (3rd overall), RBs DeMarco Murray (22nd) and Carlos Hyde (27th), and WRs Julio Jones (46th) and DeAndre Hopkins (51st). They put together one of the best groups of WRs in the league, as they added Jones, Julian Edelman, Hopkins, and Steve Smith Sr.

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


While Week 10 has the most players on bye for Appstate parrotheads (four), Week 4 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the most difficult schedules. Appstate parrotheads will have to be on top of their game as the playoffs approach, as the last four games of their season are projected to be more difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • Bargain Shopper

    With five steals in the first 9 rounds (including Julio Jones, Buffalo, and DeAndre Hopkins), Appstate parrotheads made some shrewd moves.

  • A Stretch of the Imagination

    Grabbing Daniel Herron at pick 171 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Herron is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

  • Mr. Irrelevant

    In terms of projected points, the choice of Daniel Herron with the 171st pick gave Appstate parrotheads the worst pick of the final round. This Mr. Irrelevant gets no parade, unfortunately.

Player Analysis

    • Tom Brady, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    Caught Reaching

    Appstate parrotheads will probably regret their first-round choice. Tom Brady, taken with the third overall pick, has an ADP of only 70.7 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 22
    Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

    Get on up, it's DeMarco Murray time! He's predicted to run cool this season with 195 projected points.

    • Carlos Hyde, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 27
    Paydirt Found

    Carlos Hyde is expected to finish ninth in the NFL in rushing TDs with 8.4.

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 46
    Haters Gonna Hate

    The rest of stanly docs League overlooked a gem, and Appstate parrotheads made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Julio Jones.

    • Julian Edelman, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 70
    Was Julian Edelman Worth it at Pick No. 70?

    Appstate parrotheads sure hopes so. The Patriots' WR is projected to put up 155 points this year, after getting 137 last season.

There are three positions that Appstate parrotheads could look to upgrade, including TE, which looks like their biggest area of need.

    • Rank 132, ADP 128
    • Dwayne Allen

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..."
