HungryHungry Hickman parlayed a solid draft slot (fifth overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 9-4-0 (1,260 points), they're projected to finish fifth in Sayde's First Football Season League. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Tony Romo (60th overall), RBs Marshawn Lynch (5th) and Alfred Morris (37th), and WRs Mike Evans (28th) and Vincent Jackson (69th). They built one of the best groups of RBs in the league, as they added Lynch, Morris, Bishop Sankey, and Charles Sims.
Week 6 is not looking like a fun one for fantasy football. HungryHungry Hickman should look into the joys of scrapbooking, or bird-watching, or just anything that isn't fantasy football. It might not be pretty. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the least difficult schedules. HungryHungry Hickman has the opportunity to close with a bang, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average. However, the opening stretch of first four games is expected to be tougher than average, so a slow start is possible.
Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away
It's likely that in Week 6, HungryHungry Hickman will either be scraping the wire or begging for a trade (Tony Romo and Derek Carr will both be on bye). You can give Favre a call, but texting him isn't recommended.
RB is the strongest position for HungryHungry Hickman, though TE and QB aren't too shabby either.

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.
