HSTL Season 45 Preview and Draft Grades - AFC East

Recommended Posts

It's been pointed out that I should do the recap since it was my format, so here goes...

 

AFC EAST

 

Buffalo

BILLS1

 

Best Pick - NYJ DBs at #43

Worst Pick - NYG RBs at #14

Outlook - Things got off to a rough start with the 1st round pick given what else was available. PIT LBs and CHI DL were nice value picks but they would be better served on rosters that don't already have a 63 int DB. Offensively, things are bleak. The league could lose its commish if Hoff has a mental breakdown throwing with IND QBs to NE WRs. Best hope is that this is a skill-gaining season, with a high draft pick waiting in S46.

Prediction: 3-13

 

INDY

COLTS1

 

Best Pick - ATL DBs at #34

Worst Pick - PHX QBs at #90

Outlook - Jerry Rice and moonballs from Rosie, with Deion trying to be everywhere on defense. The pickup of ATL RBs was nice at the end of the third since it was the last 50ms RB, but a 44ms RB in a later round might have been a better choice unless you're able to stick with a balanced attack. Reverting to moonballs with only Deion on defense could lead to a very up and down season for ODT.

Prediction: 9-7

 

JETS

JETS1

Best Pick - HOU QBs at #4

Worst Pick - KC DBs at #60

Outlook - With no running game to speak of, the Jets playbook might get widdled down to four plays in most games. Pairing the NYG WRs with Moon is very nice, but it only leaves the NO LBs and KC DBs on defense. The offense might be too one-dimensional to keep pace with all of the scoring happening when the defense is on the field. A .500 season would be a success for Hock this year.

Prediction: 7-9

 

PATRIOTS

PATRIOTS1

Best Pick - NYJ WRs at #121

Worst Pick - BUF LBs at #65

Outlook - The Buffalo LB pick was actually terrific value at that position, the problem is that a lot of that value is lost on a team that already has Waymer and Lott to control. Grabbing a 50rp LB in a later round might have been a better choice, but if the offense can make it work then it won't matter. There's good balance on that side of the ball, with Majik, Herschel, and Toon, so smart play and stout defense could lead to a playoff birth for Darth and the Pats.

Prediction: 10-6

 

MIAMI

DOLPHINS1

Best Pick - PIT DBs at #13

Worst Pick - None

Outlook - Pairing Stephone Paige with Krieg was smart, as having no deep threat would be a nightmare season with Dave K. at the helm. I was tempted to knock the PIT DB pick when TB DBs were still on the board, but the weaker starting QBs in this format might mean that Woodson can still snack on some tasty jj treats. The other picks of CIN OL and CIN LBs were good value. The one drawback is having a 38ms RB with Krieg. If Hughmillennation can't successfully move the ball on the ground, this offense will sputter.

Prediction: 6-10

lol Thanks for writing this up!   Fun to read.     

 

Hoff's prediction of 3-13 can't be right......           That's way too high.

Only one team close to a Doppelganger in this division to our CFT 2 teams. 

 

DT has Krieg to Stephone Paige as well, but he has SF RBs and SF DL, PIT LBs and SEA DBs...
