If HeidiR's Team deals with adversity during the season the way they did in this draft, it's going to be a tough year. Picking No. 7 overall, they were clearly ill-equipped. Behind multiple Raiders in the early rounds (Antonio Brown and Josh Jacobs), HeidiR's Team are predicted to finish 7th in Yahoo Public 2423 with a record of 5-9 (1,822 points).
- Alshon Jeffery
What a nice late-round bargain for HeidiR's Team, who selected Jeffery at No. 94, about three rounds later than his ADP of 73. Coming off a season in which he had 65 receptions for 843 yards and 6 TDs in 13 games, totaling 153 fantasy points, Jeffery is projected to score 179 fantasy points with the Eagles. That makes him a valuable No. 4 WR for this squad.
- Robbie Gould
Going out on a Limb
It will take a truly "special" season to justify selecting Gould in the 9th round, about four rounds earlier than his ADP of 128. He is projected to score 132 fantasy points this season with the 49ers, about the same as his total of 139 from last year.
With only three tight ends off the board, HeidiR's Team saw a run coming and got in early, taking O.J. Howard with the 54th pick. Three more tight ends went in the round that followed.
Patience is a virtue. You became the last owner in the league to draft a quarterback with your selection of Drew Brees (No. 67 overall).
HeidiR's Team have one of the hardest schedules in the early-going in Yahoo Public 2423 based on projections with a strength of schedule for the first three weeks ranked as the 3rd-most difficult. In spite of that, for the full season, HeidiR's Team should expect a pretty fair path that rates as the 7th hardest.
In spite of offensive openings at QB, RB, and TE in the 4th round, HeidiR's Team drafted WR Keenan Allen at No. 34, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a position of higher need. They were the second squad to fill a flex position.

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.
