    Any Given Sunday Draft Report Card

    A-
    Grade

    With Multiple Eagles, Any Given Sunday Has a Stacked Squad

    Draft Summary

    With the first overall pick, Any Given Sunday put on a show for the competition. Drafting a complete team capable of winning week in and week out, they're projected to finish second in NFL14 League with a record of 11-3-0 (2,525 points). Despite selecting five WRs for their roster, Any Given Sunday may not get what they think they will out of the position. Their WRs are projected to average 134 points this season, fewer than the league average of 146. They landed one of the bottom groups of RBs in the league, as they have LeSean McCoy, Trent Richardson, Reggie Bush, and Darren Sproles on their team.

    With a draft like that, you might as well make it official. Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    While Week 10 has the most players on bye for Any Given Sunday (seven), Week 7 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least difficult schedules. In addition to having the second-easiest overall schedule, Any Given Sunday has the league's easiest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Lots of Brotherly Love

      The fantasy hopes of Any Given Sunday rest heavily on the fortunes of Philly's offense, as they have five Eagles on their roster.

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

      Any Given Sunday must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 10, both Jordan Reed and Kyle Rudolph will be on bye.

    • Highlight Reel

      QB is the strongest position for Any Given Sunday, but DEF and K are also stronger than the league average at those positions.

    • I Keep Getting Older

      And they stay the same age. Any Given Sunday isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 5 years of NFL experience.

    • Golden Handcuff

      Any Given Sunday hedged their bets by scooping up Darren Sproles in the 20th round to back up LeSean McCoy, his Eagles teammate (a first-round selection).

    • Team of Champions

      Any Given Sunday 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, Jordy Nelson, and Reggie Bush).

    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.

      • Aaron Rodgers, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 16
      Any Given Sunday's Stud Signal-Caller

      Aaron Rodgers is projected to rack up 354 points this year, enough to rank third among all QBs.

      • A.J. Green, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 17
      182 Excuses to Cheer for A.J. Green

      Green ranks sixth in the NFL14 League among wideouts with 182 projected fantasy points.

      • Jordy Nelson, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 32
      The Power of Persuasion

      Now would be a reasonable time for Any Given Sunday to encourage the NFL14 League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Jordy Nelson and his 87 projected catches (ranked 10th in the NFL).

      • Nick Foles, QB
      • Round 5, Pick 33
      Thanks for Clearing That Up, Terry

      Terry Bradshaw once said “I may be dumb, but I'm not stupid.” Any Given Sunday hopes that drafting Nick Foles and his 30.1 projected passing TDs was a choice that Bradshaw wouldn't make.

    Best Available

    There are three positions that Any Given Sunday could look to improve, including RB and WR, which look like the biggest areas of need.

      • Ben Tate
      • Rank 80, ADP 100
      • Steven Jackson
      • Rank 81, ADP 102
      • Kendall Wright
      • Rank 73, ADP 80
      • Reggie Wayne
      • Rank 86, ADP 99
    • Bye Week Points Lost

    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..."
