Today we wrap up the final Speed Bump of 2016 with two of the greats of all-time at quarterback in Drew Brees and Peyton Manning and the new kid on the block, fresh off back-to-back Super Bowls and sporting a new 4-year, $87.67M contract extension in Russell Wilson, making Wilson the second highest paid quarterback in the NFL behind Aaron Rodgers. By position covered, the final count was 19 QBs, 35 RBs, 50 WRs and 5 TEs. Lastly, the final tally – the exact statistical probability of getting all 30 polls correct (randomly guessing) settles in at 1 in 10 quadrillion, 699 trillion, 320 billion, 537 million, 907 thousand and two hundred.
Nearing the end, we have just two spots left for Speed Bump 2015 polls. Today, it’s likely the WR1 versus WR2 in most drafts in 2015. With only one pick and on the clock, and only one pick to win or lose in the 2015 Speed Bump Competition, who will reign supreme in 2015 between Antonio Brown and Dez Bryant? With two options to chose from in this poll, the odds of getting all correct doubles, from roughly 1 in 1.8 quadrillion, to 1 in 3.6 quadrillion.
We have covered much of the epic 2014 rookie wide receiver class as it is the rookie wide receiver class that keeps on giving. In this one, Mike Evans goes up against elite wide receiver royalty, albeit one coming in from a down season in the great A.J. Green. One vote -- who will you be drafting and who will outperform in 2015?
Nearing the end of the 2015 Speed Bump polls it's a day for some super high-end receivers in Odell Beckham Jr., Julio Jones and Demaryius Thomas. You might be plenty thrilled to land any one of them. However, if you can only have one, on the clock, which one would you draft in 2015? The odds of getting all the polls successfully correct are growing pretty exponentially now. With three more options we are nearing in one in a quadrillion chance of getting of them all correct (randomly guessing) at precisely 1 in 891,610,044,825,600.
Down to the final five polls we go as we have now covered 99 players in total. This one is a bit of a curve ball as we pit rookie Charger Melvin Gordon against perennial elite backs Matt Forte and Arian Foster. You won’t find any ADP list or magazine that has Gordon over these two, but you have to pay play. Can Gordon take these two down? Or who will win between vets Forte and Foster? With those aging war horse running backs avoid any cliffs and drops offs for one more season?
We are examining some high-end receivers in this one with the great Calvin Johnson who will need to beat not one, but two Green Packers to win this one. Calvin is the favorite based on average draft position, but he is no lock that would seem for sure. For starters, Calvin was easily third of these receivers as Jordy Nelson had 327.9 fantasy points (WR3), Randall Cobb had 297.5 fantasy points (WR7) and then Calvin with 226.7 (WR17).

There are some who think Graham will be hard-pressed to produce anywhere near similar numbers now in Seattle, and some who think Travis Kelce is a bigger break-out still in 2015. If you like both of those then this is an easy poll for you! After Rob Gronkowski with a 2.04 ADP, Jimmy Graham is TE2 at 3.06 on average and Travis Kelce is TE3 at 5.07 on average.
We kick off the final ten 2015 Speed Bumps with a six-pack of running backs, and with the six options the odds of getting all 21 polls correct (randomly guessing) now cracks one in a trillion, at 1 in 1,834,588,569,500.
