    Grade

    With Multiple Packers, London Sillynannies Finishes the Draft as Paper Champions

    Draft Summary

    London Sillynannies received the fourth pick in the draft and used it to build a juggernaut. The majority of the league will spend the season looking up at London Sillynannies in the standings, as they are expected to finish first in NFL14 League with a record of 13-1-0 (2,579 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Drew Brees (13th overall), RB Eddie Lacy (4th), WR Julio Jones (29th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (20th) within the first five rounds. They landed one of the top groups of WRs in the league, as they added Jones, Larry Fitzgerald, Cordarrelle Patterson, and Julian Edelman.

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

    Schedule

    London Sillynannies should pick up a new hobby, like bird watching, during Week 10. They have eight players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have the weakest slate. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, London Sillynannies also has the second-softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Belichick or Bust

      The fantasy hopes of London Sillynannies rest heavily on the fortunes of Brady's crew, as they have four Patriots on their roster.

    • Assessing the Assets

      TE is the strongest position for London Sillynannies, though RB and QB are also better than the league's average.

    • A Dominating Duo

      London Sillynannies has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Eddie Lacy and Drew Brees) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    • Potent Potential

      Mike Evans and Jadeveon Clowney are a couple of late-round fliers with nice upside for London Sillynannies.

    • A Little Aggressive in Flag-Football Leagues?

      Former Bronco Karl Mecklenburg once dropped this nugget: “Defensively, I think it's important for us to tackle.” Among LBs in NFL14 League, Lavonte David ranks fifth in projected tackles with 141.

    • Making the Big Tuna Proud

      Bill Parcells once said "I like linebackers. I collect 'em. You can't have too many good ones." Parcells would approve of Lavonte David, who ranks first in projected interceptions among LBs with three.

    Player Analysis

      • Eddie Lacy, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 4
      Does Eddie Lacy Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Lacy is projected to rank 10th in the league with 1,541 total yards.

      • Drew Brees, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 13
      Like a Prancing Unicorn

      Drew Brees is a fantasy dream. He's projected to finish second in the NFL in both passing TDs (37.9) and passing yards (5,106).

      • Rob Gronkowski, TE
      • Round 3, Pick 20
      Better Lucky Than Good?

      The rest of NFL14 League overlooked a gem, and London Sillynannies made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Rob Gronkowski.

      • Julio Jones, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 29
      The Power of Persuasion

      Now would be a reasonable time for London Sillynannies to encourage the NFL14 League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Julio Jones and his 105 projected catches (ranked third in the NFL).

      • Tom Brady, QB
      • Round 5, Pick 36
      Is Tom Brady Religious?

      With 330 projected points, London Sillynannies will be hoping Brady is the answer to their prayers.

    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.
