With Some Early Gambles, HeavyHittaz Needs to get to Work

Draft Summary

Despite selecting in the top half of the first round (fifth overall), HeavyHittaz might as well have been blindly heaving darts at the draft board to decide their picks. Opponents are going to enjoy beating this team, which is projected to finish 12th in Sunday Funday League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,624 points). With their first five picks, HeavyHittaz focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Dak Prescott (53rd overall), RBs Devonta Freeman (5th) and Dalvin Cook (29th), and WRs Brandin Cooks (20th) and Tyreek Hill (44th). When the dust settled, they'd ultimately landed the weakest WR pair in the league, as they added Cooks and Stefon Diggs.

Let this mediocre draft inspire you to always do better. To win your league. To get in the Toyota Hall of Fame and inspire a nation. Nominate yourself today.


HeavyHittaz should use Week 9 to think about anything other than fantasy football, like, based on principal, should vegetarians be allowed to eat animal crackers? They have seven players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the most daunting schedule. HeavyHittaz has the opportunity to finish the season on a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    HeavyHittaz might need to hit the waiver wire in Week 9, as their No. 1- (Brandin Cooks), No. 2- (Stefon Diggs) and No. 5-ranked (Corey Coleman) WRs will all be resting that week.

  • Positional Fortitude

    HeavyHittaz has four positions that are stronger than league average. While QB, DEF, and K are projected to be good, TE is the best on HeavyHittaz.

  • On the Rise

    HeavyHittaz hopes to break through this season, led by four players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.

  • Show Some ID

    HeavyHittaz isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 4.1 years of NFL experience.

  • Minnesota Vikings Fan?

    HeavyHittaz reached twice to draft a Minnesota Vikings player.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Forsaking roster depth, HeavyHittaz chose only one player at three different positions (QB, TE, and K).

Player Analysis

    • D. Freeman, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Devonta Freeman Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. HeavyHittaz should be in decent shape if Freeman gets his 272 projected touches this year.

    • Brandin Cooks, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    Is his Production Open-Sourced?

    Brandin Cooks is sure to be running free through opposing defenses. He's projected to put up 1,231 receiving yards this year, ninth-most in the NFL.

    • Dalvin Cook, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 29
    Yeah, But He Totally Retweeted Me Once!

    Although he was taken 29th overall in the fantasy draft, Dalvin Cook isn't projected among the NFL's top-20 in rushing TDs (22nd with 6.7) or rushing yards (22nd with 781).

    • Tyreek Hill, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 44
    Rethinking That One

    Tyreek Hill may not justify his 44th overall draft pick if projections hold true. Currently, he is estimated to fall outside the NFL's top-50 in both yards (68th with 758) and TDs (87th with 4.6).

    • Dak Prescott, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 53
    Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls

    By taking Dak Prescott with the 53rd overall pick, HeavyHittaz should have shown more patience. According to the signal-caller's ADP of only 89.9 across all Yahoo! leagues, he could've been chosen later. TLC would disapprove.

Best Available

RB and WR are projected to be the weakest units for HeavyHittaz.

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..."
