Led by a Stellar WR Unit, Heimtime Industries Will Be a Juggernaut

Draft Summary

Learning to handle success will be the biggest obstacle for Heimtime Industries, as they figure to be at the top of the standings all season. They are expected to go 10-4-0 (1,740 points) and finish in second-place in 2017 Coca-Cola Kroger Team League. If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs A.J. Green (first round), Amari Cooper (third round), and DeAndre Hopkins (fourth round). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, Heimtime Industries will benefit. They are the most prolific group of WRs in the league.

You're close to greatness. And if being close isn't good enough for you, you might be worthy of the Toyota Hall of Fame. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Heimtime Industries should use Week 6 to ponder life's deeper mysteries, like if someone claims "I always lie" then is that person lying or telling the truth? They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have one of the least-difficult schedules. Along with having the third-easiest overall schedule, Heimtime Industries also has the second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Decent Idea, Mediocre Execution

    Heimtime Industries will need an assist from the waiver wire in Week 6, as their only TE (Jimmy Graham), only K (Dan Bailey), and only DEF (Cincinnati) will all be on bye that week.

  • Asset Allocation

    TE is the strongest position for Heimtime Industries, though WR and K aren't too shabby either.

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    Heimtime Industries drafted top-3 players at a trio of different positions (Tom Brady, Jimmy Graham, and Dan Bailey).

  • Aging Stars

    The top half of the roster, from a projected points perspective, is relatively old (ranked No. 1 in the league with an average of 8.3 years of NFL experience), whereas the bottom half is fairly young (ranked No. 11 with 5.2 years).

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the Heimtime Industries roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 11).

  • Team of Champions

    Heimtime Industries is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Tom Brady, Amari Cooper, and Jimmy Graham).

Player Analysis

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    Heimtime Industries Gets Groovy With Green

    A.J. averaged 11.0 targets, 7.3 receptions, and 107.1 yards in nine games prior to getting injured in Week 11 last year. The 29-year-old Bengals star is healthy and primed for a big campaign this season.

    • Tom Brady, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Brilliant Brady

    For the second consecutive year, Tom appeared on more championship rosters than any other QB. He's averaged 297.3 yards, 2.3 TDs, and 0.3 INTs per regular-season game over that stretch.

    • Amari Cooper, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 31
    Essentially Elite?

    Though he didn't burst into super-stardom like many predicted, Cooper still delivered last season: only three wide receivers (Evans, Nelson, Brown) were rostered more frequently by first-place fantasy squads in 2016.

    • D. Hopkins, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 42
    Biggest Steal

    Heimtime Industries may have found a gem in the fourth round, grabbing DeAndre Hopkins (42nd overall pick vs. ADP of 30.2).

    • Jimmy Graham, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 55
    Stepping on a Banana Peel

    Jimmy Graham slipping to Heimtime Industries could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

Best Available

Heimtime Industries is projected to have a pair of below-average positions (RB and DEF), but RB is clearly their worst unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.

    • Theo Riddick
    • Rank 109, ADP 125
    • Jeremy Hill
    • Rank 113, ADP 116
    • Jacquizz Rodgers
    • Rank 119, ADP 125
    • Rex Burkhead
    • Rank 125, ADP 124

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..."
