Hey Holmes couldn't take advantage of the No. 5 overall pick, drafting a roster that may struggle to rack up wins. Opponents could enjoy overwhelming them with regularity, as this team is projected to finish 12th in Souza & Weaver Fantasy Impact. Behind multiple Raiders in the early rounds (Antonio Brown and Josh Jacobs), Hey Holmes are looking at a record of 0-13 (1,808 points).
- James Washington
What a nice late-round bargain for Hey Holmes, who got Washington in the 15th round, about five rounds later than his ADP of 125. Following a rookie season in which he recorded 16 catches for 217 yards and 1 TD in 12 games, totaling 44 fantasy points, Washington is projected to score 129 fantasy points with the Steelers. That makes him the No. 5 WR for this squad.
- Josh Oliver
We'll give you some credit and assume you took an important call right before selecting Oliver with the 5th pick of the 7th round, about three rounds earlier than his ADP of 118. Oliver is projected to score 23 fantasy points this season with the Jaguars. Oliver will slot in as the No. 2 TE for Hey Holmes, based on projected points.
Hey Holmes face a difficult challenge in Week 11 when they have four players on a bye (Russell Wilson, Corey Davis, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Seattle). Fear not: your Week 11 opponent, Dem Boyz, will be tackling a similar issue with three players (Tyler Lockett, Jimmy Graham, and Golden Tate) getting the week off.
With a strength of schedule rated as the most difficult based on projections, Hey Holmes have an uphill battle in Souza & Weaver Fantasy Impact this season. All is not lost, though. Strength of schedule is just a number. Fantasy football rewards those owners who put in the work, so make sure to monitor each week's free agent pool.
Hey Holmes are counting on youthful exuberance, putting together a squad with an average of 3.3 years of NFL experience, ranking as the youngest group in the league. Driving home that point, they selected four rookies (Josh Jacobs, David Montgomery, Josh Oliver, and Damien Harris), the highest total of first-year players in the league. In total, there were 14 rookies selected over the course of the Souza & Weaver Fantasy Impact draft.
In spite of openings on offense at QB, WR, and TE in the 4th round, Hey Holmes drafted RB David Montgomery with the 44th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a position of higher importance.

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.
