Hunter's 529 Plan Draft Report Card


Despite a Powerful Set of RBs, Wings and Touchdowns Will Need to Improve to Reach Playoffs

Draft Summary

Maybe if Wings and Touchdowns purchases a lift kit and some giant tires for this roster it won't seem so average. The playoffs are not out of reach for this team, but it will require some effort. They are projected to finish seventh in stanly docs with a record of 6-8-0 (1,455 points). With their first five picks, Wings and Touchdowns focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Peyton Manning (56th overall), RBs Matt Forte (8th) and LeSean McCoy (17th), and WRs Emmanuel Sanders (32nd) and Jordan Matthews (41st). They built the best group of RBs in the league, as they added McCoy, Forte, Joique Bell, and Bishop Sankey.

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


Ever wonder what exactly was inside the briefcase in Pulp Fiction? Wings and Touchdowns should use Week 7 to solve the mystery, since they certainly won't be winning. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have the weakest schedule. In addition to having the easiest overall schedule, Wings and Touchdowns also has the league's easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • A Triumvirate of Talent

    Wings and Touchdowns has three above-average positions on their roster (RB, WR, and K).

  • Team of Champions?

    Wings and Touchdowns is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Matt Forte, Emmanuel Sanders, and Peyton Manning.

Player Analysis

    • Matt Forte, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 8
    Forte is Hungry

    And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank seventh in the NFL with 306 touches.

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    Old Fashioned

    Wings and Touchdowns stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Matt Forte and LeSean McCoy before targeting other positions.

    • E. Sanders, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 32
    Denver Dynamite

    A bargain at his ADP last season, Sanders was one of just four WRs to notch 100 receptions in 2014. The secret is out, but Wings and Touchdowns obviously knows this WR2 is as good a bet as any to post WR1-esque numbers.

    • Peyton Manning, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 56
    Biggest Steal

    Wings and Touchdowns may have found a gem in the fifth round, grabbing Peyton Manning (56th overall pick vs. ADP of 38.1).

    • Eric Decker, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 65
    Was Eric Decker Worth it at Pick No. 65?

    Wings and Touchdowns sure hopes so. The Jets' WR is projected to have 122 points this year, almost the same as his total from last season.

Best Available

There are three positions that Wings and Touchdowns could look to improve, including DEF and TE, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Baltimore Defense
    • Rank 199, ADP 102
    • Kansas City Defense
    • Rank 209, ADP 126
    • Austin Seferian-Jenkins
    • Rank 126, ADP 133
    • Vernon Davis
    • Rank 132, ADP 128
  • Bye Week Points Lost

    Each bar represents the total projected season points for each player that's on bye that week. This chart shows any potential bye week issues.

  • Pick Number Minus ADP
    Pick Number

    Bars above zero indicate a pick was selected later than a player's ADP. Bars below zero show players that were taken earlier than their ADP.

  • Avg Points by Position vs League
        Team     League

    The average projected points for all the players at each position versus the average projected points for all players at that position in the league.

  • Schedule by Opponent Points

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..."
