Ryan Hester - Slot 1

PICK OVERALL POS PLAYER TEAM
1.01 1 WR Antonio Brown PIT
2.12 24 WR Brandon Marshall NYJ
3.01 25 RB Thomas Rawls SEA
4.12 48 RB Matt Jones WAS

17.01 193 WR Mike Wallace BAL
18.12 216 Def Pittsburgh Steelers PIT
19.01 217 PK Chris Boswell PIT
20.12 240 TE Ben Watson BAL

Overall Strategy:

Hester stockpiled top receivers, waited to draft quarterbacks, and built an extensive running-back-by-committee.

Best Pick:

Even in non-PPR, I like Antonio Brown to anchor any redraft team - but I think that Hester got tremendous values with Michael Crabtree at 8.12 and Ben Watson at 20.12.

Worst Pick:

Including Austin Seferian-Jenkins (16.12) on the roster at all - Cameron Brate has won the top tight end job in Tampa Bay and I think that makes Seferian-Jenkins a wasted pick at this point.

Evaluation:

This is a well-rounded team with no apparent weaknesses - that I had to criticize him for a sixteenth-round pick shows just what a great job Hester did in this draft. This should be a fantasy team in contention for the playoffs come December.

Cian Fahey - Slot 2

PICK OVERALL POS PLAYER TEAM
1.02 2 RB Todd Gurley RAM
2.11 23 RB Doug Martin TBB

4.11 47 TE Greg Olsen CAR

16.11 191 WR Kenny Britt RAM
17.02 194 RB Karlos Williams BUF
18.11 215 RB Ronnie Hillman DEN
19.02 218 WR Tajae Sharpe TEN
20.11 239 PK Roberto Aguayo TBB

Overall Strategy:

Fahey emphasized the top running backs on this squad, then went out and drafted the top quarterback and one of the top five tight ends in the league. He went counter to the growing preference for wide receivers among fantasy owners.

Best Pick:

In a non-PPR league with six points for TD passes such as this, Cam Newton (3.02) should be stellar week in and week out. I like it that Fahey ran counter to the usual Footballguys.com Staff tendency to delay drafting a quarterback until after the premium rounds - he's got a fire-and-forget starter at quarterback each and every week as long as Newton stays healthy.

Worst Pick:

I am not a fan of Kevin White's (5.02) potential this year - he is essentially a rookie wide receiver and he has perhaps the worst headcase among NFL quarterbacks in the league (Jay Cutler) throwing to him. If (when) Cutler goes into a sulk and starts torpedoing the offense, White will have some real stinkers in the box score. I really don't like him as the first wide receiver selected to anchor the franchise wide receiver stable.

Evaluation:

Fahey managed to put together a nice collection of receivers after the White pick, so overall I really like this team's chances. He's got an awesome corps of running backs and the top quarterback in the league - Fahey should be in contention to hoist the league trophy when Weeks 15-16 roll around.

Steve Buzzard - Slot 3

PICK OVERALL POS PLAYER TEAM
1.03 3 WR Julio Jones ATL
2.10 22 WR Mike Evans TBB
3.03 27 WR Keenan Allen SDC
4.10 46 QB Andrew Luck IND

18.10 214 RB Shane Vereen NYG
19.03 219 Def New England Patriots NEP
20.10 238 TE Kyle Rudolph MIN

Overall Strategy:

All-in on clear-cut #1 wide receivers (his top three selections were all wideouts); emphasize the quarterback.

Best Pick(s):

I like the move to corner the top two running backs for the Jets, Matt Forte (5.03) and Bilal Powell (10.10). Forte is a good fit for what the Jets are doing and if he falters, Powell will fill in admirably - also, Powell should have stand-alone fantasy value as the Jets plan to utilize both guys extensively. Given that Buzzard waited until the mid rounds to pick running backs, he needed to be sure of securing the majority of the touches among the Jets' backs.

Worst Pick:

Jordan Cameron has a shaky quarterback (Ryan Tannehill didn't impress me last year) and though Adam Gase has been a successful offensive coach I'm not happy with how things have shook out in Miami so far. I don't like him as the #2 tight end for this club.

Evaluation:

Any fantasy team throwing down with Julio Jones; Mike Evans; and Keenan Allen as their starting wide receivers (and this league has no flex position, so three receivers is all you get) is going to have a lot of fantasy points to build on. Quarterback and tight end are solid between Andrew Luck and Delanie Walker - the main concern for this team is #2 running back. If Duke Johnson or Dion Lewis pan out, Buzzard should have a shot at the playoffs.

phil alexander - slot 4

18.09 213 WR Terrelle Pryor CLE
19.04 220 Def New York Giants NYG
20.09 237 PK Cairo Santos KCC

Overall Strategy:

Alexander went for a balanced blend of wide receivers and running backs, accumulating four receivers and three running backs during the first seven rounds of the draft - he waited on tight ends and quarterbacks.

Best Pick:

Arian Foster at 7.04 seems like a great value - he's been head-and-shoulders above the rest of the field in Miami during training camp, and we know how explosive he can be (when healthy). This could be Alexanders' #1 running back for much of the season.

Worst Pick:

Breshad Perriman - he's been injured forever, he's currently injured, he hasn't had many reps with Joe Flacco (who is coming off an ACL rehab) - I don't like anything about this guy or his current situation.

Evaluation:

Alexander has fine depth and quality starters top to bottom. He's got the chops to play for it all in December.

devin knotts - Slot 5

PICK OVERALL POS PLAYER TEAM
1.05 5 RB Ezekiel Elliott DAL
2.08 20 RB LeSean McCoy BUF

18.08 212 Def New York Jets NYJ
19.05 221 WR James Jones SDC
20.08 236 PK Chandler Catanzaro ARI

Overall Strategy:

Knotts went for a balanced roster, emphasizing the premium running backs early in the draft - he waited to pick tight ends.

Best Pick:

Knotts waited until pick 9.05 for a tight end, and then he landed Gary Barnidge, a guy I think is a virtual lock for a top-ten finish at his position with top-five upside if the Cleveland offense gets on an even keel quickly during the season. This was very well done.

Worst Pick:

Josh Gordon at 7.05 seems a little rich for a guy we know won't play for four games and who came to camp out of shape and has missed a lot of reps with the current quarterbacks as a result. The risk that Gordon winds up with another drug-related suspension is also a realistic scenario given his past behavior/issues. A definite risk-reward pick which has more risk than most such boom-or-bust picks.

Evaluation:

This team has a lot of 'boom' potential with Ben Roethlisberger at quarterback, Kelvin Benjamin and company at wide receiver - I am a little concerned about the #3 running back slot with Tevin Coleman, Paul Perkins and Chris Johnson filling out the options when Buffalo or Dallas is out on their bye week. However, this club should win more than it loses and has a shot at the playoffs.

18.07 211 WR Will Fuller HOU
19.06 222 RB Shaun Draughn SFO
20.07 235 WR Jamison Crowder WAS

Overall Strategy:

Tefertiller emphasized premium running backs in this draft (using his first two picks on the position), and went with a premium quarterback as well, while also adding wide receivers early on. He waited on the tight end position.

Best Pick:

Anchoring his team with David Johnson at 1.06 was a good move - Johnson has a very high ceiling and, because of some worries about over-the-hill Chris Johnson, some folks are cool on David Johnson. In this format I think David Johnson is a fine guy to build a fantasy team around.

Worst Pick:

Jimmy Graham at 10.07 - He was great in New Orleans, but since then Graham has suffered a career-threatening patellar tendon injury (and he wasn't fitting into the Seattle offense well before his injury last year, either). This is not the guy to build at tight end stable around.

Evaluation:

Excepting the tight end position, Tefertiller assembled a solid starting lineup. The depth chart isn't so rosy, though, and this team looks like an also-ran as it stands after the draft.

18.06 210 Def Cincinnati Bengals CIN
19.07 223 PK Adam Vinatieri IND
20.06 234 WR Jeff Janis GBP

Overall Strategy:

Howe went for a balanced roster, using his first three picks on a wide receiver (Allen Robinson), a running back (Devonta Freeman), and an elite level quarterback (Aaron Rodgers).

Best Pick:

Snagging Latavius Murray at 4.06 was a great move - the coaching staff was talking about giving him more handoffs earlier this week, and Murray was second in rushing (1,066 yards) in the AFC last year with 266 carries. He is playing for an improving offensive team and should enjoy some large holes to run through behind a good run-blocking line.

Worst Pick:

Starting off his tight end stable with Tyler Eifert, a player we might not see until mid-season due to his May foot surgery, seems optimisitic given the time-frames I've been seeing for Eifert's return to action.

Evaluation:

Howe added four tight ends in all, so he covered for the Eifert pick, and the rest of his roster is solid top to bottom. Powered by the core of elite players he assembled early on, this team should be one to fear during 2016.

18.05 209 Def Oakland Raiders OAK
19.08 224 PK Mason Crosby GBP
20.05 233 TE Maxx Williams BAL

Overall Strategy:

Hicks went for a balanced roster, taking a top-flight quarterback relatively early and then snagged a top-five tight end as well.

Best Pick:

Getting Travis Kelce at 6.05 is really going to help this club - teams must start one tight end in this league which tends to magnify the value of the elite tier of tight ends, and Kelce is certainly one of those.

Worst Pick:

Kenyan Drake has no buzz surrounding him in training camp, and the Dolphins brought in Arian Foster to be the team's bell-cow back. There are a lot of players in front of Drake in Miami - it is hard to see how he makes any kind of fantasy impact this season.

Evaluation:

This team has a formidable starting lineup - if there is a weak link it is Melvin Gordon as the #2 running back. Depth at running back is a concern as well - but if things break right for Hicks in the injury department, this club should contend for a league title this season.

19.09 225 WR Leonte Carroo MIA
20.04 232 PK Blair Walsh MIN

Overall Strategy:

Norton went for Rob Gronkowski at 1.09 and then built a balanced roster around his ultra-elite tight end.

Best Pick:

Marvin Jones at pick 6.04 may pay big dividends this season - reports out of Detroit are that Jones has built a strong rapport with Matthew Stafford, and that Jones may be the new #1 wide receiver for the team. This is an offense that will throw the ball a lot and, given Eric Ebron's recent ankle injury, the Lions figure to throw to their wide receivers most of the time.

Worst Pick:

There aren't many picks to dislike in this draft, but Tim Hightower at 12.04 seems a bit pricey for a guy firmly behind Mark Ingram down in New Orleans.

Evaluation:

This team is strong and deep at every position - Norton should be in the hunt for the league trophy when the snow starts flying in December.

19.10 226 WR Robert Woods BUF
20.03 231 PK Dan Bailey DAL

Overall Strategy:

In early rounds Ingel alternated between wide receiver and running back picks, and he waited until late in the draft to select his quarterbacks.

Best Pick:

Kirk Cousins at 12.03 - In a non-PPR league that awards six points for passing TDs, Cousins should provide lots of upside from this lowly draft position. He's a guy on the cusp of top-10 fantasy quarterback numbers week to week with upside potential from there. Throw in that Cousins is playing for his next contract this year and he looks very attractive.

Worst Pick:

Jay Ajayi at 6.03 seems expensive for a guy who has lost his starting job to Arian Foster. This looks like a reach pick at this point in the preseason, although there is a school of thought that envisions Ajayi as the more valuable fantasy back by year's end.

Evaluation:

This team has a great starting lineup and nice depth as well, although a third tight end would have helped solidify that position given Ladarius Green's ongoing absence from the Pittsburgh training camp. Ingel's club should be making noise most of the year and has a good chance to be in the playoff mix.

19.11 227 RB Tyler Ervin HOU
20.02 230 Def Green Bay Packers GBP

Overall Strategy:

Haseley drafted a balanced team, using early picks on three receivers, two running backs and a tight end.

Best Pick(s):

Devin Funchess at 9.11 and Kamar Aiken at 11.11 provide fantastic depth for this team at wide receiver, and both have the potential to be legitimate fantasy starters this season. Funchess has a lot of positive buzz surrounding him in the Carolina training camp, while Aiken is heir apparent to be the lead receiver for Joe Flacco in Baltimore.

Worst Pick:

Given that Zach Miller already has (another) concussion - sidelining him from early in training camp - it seems very risky to depend on him as a fantasy squad's #2 tight end. Concussions are such a hot-button topic for the league right now and guys with multiple concussions on their medical history - and Miller has such a history - are at risk for long absences from the playing field.

Evaluation:

Excepting the tight end position, this fantasy team has a lot of solid depth and yet also 'boom' potential in the starting lineup. This is a team that should battle for playoff seeding in December.

19.12 228 WR Rueben Randle PHI
20.01 229 WR Seth Roberts OAK

Overall Strategy:

Hindery went for a balanced squad, going WR/RB/TE/RB/WR/WR with his first six picks in the draft.

Best Pick:

Grabbing Blake Bortles at 10.01 to cover for Tom Brady's (7.12) four-week suspension was a smart move as this team needs solid points from the quarterback position to stay afloat while Hindery also waits out the probable four-game suspension of Le'Veon Bell.

Worst Pick(s):

Stacking two four game suspensions out of a team's first seven picks, when one of them is 2.01 (13th player chosen, Le'Veon Bell) seems like a poor strategy. This squad begins the season down two starters for the month of September.

Evaluation:

If Bortles, Giovani Bernard and Darren Sproles can provide enough fantasy points to carry Hindery's team over the rough patch in September/early October, then this club may compete for it all in December. However, if the team opens 1-3 or 0-4 due to the double-whammy of Bell's and Brady's suspensions, then the fat lady is singing for this fantasy squad well before December.
