Bring Back Joey Draft Report Card


Despite a Set of Beast RBs, Bring Back Joey Might Make Playoffs but Probably Not

Draft Summary

The GM of Bring Back Joey took the first overall pick in the draft and turned it into a pretty decent team. Unless of course they planned on winning, because if that was the plan, then it didn't go very well. Bring Back Joey will need to make some moves to improve their playoff chances, currently projected to finish sixth in Labor Pains League with a record of 6-7-0 (1,958 points). With their first five picks, Bring Back Joey aimed for balance, selecting QB Ben Roethlisberger (41st overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (1st) and Justin Forsett (21st), and WRs A.J. Green (20th) and Andre Johnson (40th). They ended up with the top group of RBs in the league, as they added Peterson, Forsett, and Andre Ellington.

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


Bring Back Joey should do pretty much anything other than watch football during Week 5. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a softer-than-average slate. Along with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Bring Back Joey.

Draft Notes

  • Earning Your Paycheck

    Bring Back Joey will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Sammy Watkins), fourth- (Charles Johnson), and fifth-ranked (Roddy White) wideouts.

  • Asset Management

    Bring Back Joey is loaded at RB and TE. Could they be willing to leverage some of that talent and listen to trade offers from other teams in Labor Pains League?

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Bring Back Joey will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 6, as their only K (Dan Bailey) and only DEF (St. Louis) will both be on bye that week.

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, Bring Back Joey chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • Basic Math is Optional

    Michael Vick once claimed "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 554 projected rushing yards, Cam Newton can channel his inner Vick to help Bring Back Joey this year.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 1
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 333 touches, Adrian Peterson is projected to rank second in the NFL in that category. How touching, Bring Back Joey.

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    256 More Reasons to Appreciate A.J. Green

    Green ranks ninth in the Labor Pains League among WRs with 256 projected fantasy points.

    • Justin Forsett, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 21
    Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

    Get on up, it's Justin Forsett time! He should run cool this season with 239 projected points.

    • Andre Johnson, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 40
    Defensive Coordinators Plan Specifically for Johnson

    Andre Johnson is expected to reach paydirt 8.4 times, placing him eighth in the NFL in projected receiving TDs.

    • B. Roethlisberger, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 41
    Rare Company for Roethlisberger

    Big Ben joined Aaron Rodgers as the only QBs to eclipse 4,000 yards and average at least 8.0 yards per attempt last season. He was also one of just four signal-callers to throw for 30+ TDs and have fewer than 10 interceptions on the year.

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..."
