2022 Heartland Division Preview
This division is going to be pretty similar to the East division. There are three average teams that will have a chance to win the division, with no clear front runner, and various strengths between the teams. At the bottom of the division is a team that will compete for the top overall pick in 2023.
The Cabras haven’t really improved or regressed much since last season. They have an average team across the board. This is what was said about them at the beginning of last season, and they still held onto the division lead up until late into last season, before falling apart down the stretch. The Cabras have proven they can play up to better competition, and in a division of average teams, they have a real shot at winning the division.
Kansas City Buffaloes
It’s going to be a rough year for Kansas City. There’s not much going for them on defense, and even less on offense. I think the Buffaloes should make their main goal for the 2022 season, to not be blown out at home in prime time on Easter Sunday. They can sneak some wins in here and there, but expect to see Kansas City near the top of the draft board once the offseason hits.
Memphis has taken a bit of a step back on both sides of the ball, but, with the competition in their division, the Demons can still win this Heartland. It’ll come down to offensive play. If the offense is in sync, they can put up big numbers, but they could also see some rough days if not on the same page.
St. Louis Brewers
The Brewers (the hornless heartland team) were outmatched in most of their games last season, but still managed to be competitive. St. Louis will have a chance to be competitive within their own division this season, so if they can get wins they aren’t expected to, like last season, then they will be in the race for the Heartland division championship. The Brewers are really going to have to lean into their defense though, with their uncertainty at the quarterback position.
That wraps up the season previews for each team. Overall, 2022 is shaping up to be a fun and competitive season, with many teams having a legitimate shot at making a run at their division title, with even more in line to make a playoff push. We can’t wait to get this season underway.
