    Chris Hogan's Heros Draft Report Card

    B
    Grade

    Despite a Set of Monster RBs, Chris Hogan's Heros Has a Solidly Average Roster

    Draft Summary

    Hopefully just because this draft was average, Chris Hogan's Heros won't purchase a muscle car or jacked-up truck to overcompensate. And hey, with the right breaks, maybe this team can reach the playoffs. They are projected to finish sixth in Footballers 4 Life League with a record of 7-6-0 (1,345 points). They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Nick Foles (41st overall), RBs LeSean McCoy (1st) and Andre Ellington (21st), and WRs Jordy Nelson (20th) and Keenan Allen (40th). They built the best group of RBs in the league, as they added McCoy, Ellington, Rashad Jennings, and Ben Tate to their roster.

    Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

    Schedule

    Chris Hogan's Heros should use Week 10 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why do we park in a driveway but drive on a parkway? It will be better to think about that than to check fantasy football. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Chris Hogan's Heros.

    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.
