Anders's Team Draft Report Card


With a Projected Finish of Sixth, Anders's Team Is a Team to Keep an Eye On

Draft Summary

Anders's Team parlayed a solid draft slot (third overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 6-7-0 (1,823 points), they're projected to finish sixth in Section H Fantasty League. They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Drew Brees (51st overall), RB Eddie Lacy (3rd), WR DeAndre Hopkins (22nd), and TE Travis Kelce (46th) within the first five rounds. They landed one of the best TE tandems in the league, as they have Kelce and Jason Witten on their team.

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


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Anders's Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the entire season, they have an easier-than-average slate. Along with the fifth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Anders's Team.

Draft Notes

  • Stockpiling Talent at RB

    Anders's Team should be in good shape with four position groups projected to be better-than-average. RB is definitely the strongest among them.

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    At four different positions, Anders's Team picked up projected top-3 players (including Eddie Lacy, Travis Kelce, and Stephen Gostkowski).

  • Close to the Vest

    Anders's Team was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 16 picks.

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Vernon Davis, Anders's Team pounced on him at pick No. 166.

  • Anders's Team Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Roy Helu Jr. at pick 171 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Helu Jr. is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Eddie Lacy, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    Feed Thy Beast

    Eddie Lacy will get the ball early and often, projected to finish third in the league with 329 touches.

    • Travis Kelce, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 46
    All Over the Field

    Travis Kelce is projected to rank among the top-5 for TEs in both receiving TDs (fourth with 5.8) and receiving yards (third with 829).

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 51
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Anders's Team got a steal in snatching Drew Brees in the fifth round (51st overall pick vs. ADP of 35.5).

    • Jason Witten, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 70
    Was the 70th Pick the Right Time for Jason Witten?

    Anders's Team apparently believes it is. The Cowboys' tight end is projected to earn 141 points this year, after putting up 132 last year.

    • Pierre Garcon, WR
    • Round 7, Pick 75
    A Bit of a Reach

    Anders's Team went out on a limb with their seventh-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Pierre Garcon has an ADP of 111.7, but he was grabbed at pick No. 75. Patience is a virtue, Anders's Team.

Best Available

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..."
