After Some Stretch Picks, Philadelphia Ducks Have the Look of a Cellar Dweller

Draft Summary

Philadelphia Ducks couldn't take advantage of the No. 4 overall pick, drafting a roster that may have trouble winning. Opponents could enjoy defeating them with regularity, as this team is projected to finish 12th in League 2. Philadelphia Ducks are predicted to finish with a record of 2-12 (1,521 points).

  • Marquise Brown

Biggest Steal

What a late-round value for Philadelphia Ducks, who selected Brown with the 9th pick of the 14th round, about three rounds later than his ADP of 127. Brown is projected to score 133 fantasy points with the Ravens, which would make him a valuable No. 3 WR for this squad.

  • Emmanuel Sanders

Reach Pick

Everyone considers themselves the next Brad Evans these days, so there's no telling what inspired you to select Sanders in the 8th round, about two rounds earlier than his ADP of 121. Projected to score 118 fantasy points this season with the Broncos, he'll need to outperform expectations to beat last year when he racked up 71 catches for 868 yards and 4 TDs over 12 games to earn 127 fantasy points. According to projections, Sanders will slot in as the No. 5 WR for Philadelphia Ducks to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • If you're not first, you're last, so good thing you were first. You beat your opponents to the punch at quarterback, drafting Patrick Mahomes (No. 28 overall) as the first QB off the board. You were more patient at tight end, becoming the last owner in the league to draft a TE with the selection of Jason Witten (No. 141 overall).

  • Week 10 will be a rude awakening for Philadelphia Ducks, as they have five players on a bye (Jordan Howard, James White, Julian Edelman, New England, and Emmanuel Sanders). Reindeer, your Week 10 opponent, won't be quite as encumbered with only one player (Adrian Peterson) on the sideline.

  • Philadelphia Ducks have one of the toughest schedules in League 2 this season based on projected records with a strength of schedule rated as the 2nd-most difficult. All is not lost, though. Strength of schedule reveals nothing about how active you are. There are infinite means to keep improving throughout the season for those who remain active.

  • Philadelphia Ducks appear to have prioritized age before beauty, assembling a roster with an average of 6.2 years of NFL experience, ranking as the oldest group in the league. Despite that, they still selected two rookies (Josh Jacobs and Marquise Brown), the 2nd-highest total of first-year players in the league. In total, there were 12 rookies selected over the course of the League 2 draft.

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..."
