Sigmund Bloom - Draft Position 1
|1.01||1||Bell, Le'Veon PIT RB|
|2.12||24||Murray, DeMarco PHI RB|
|3.01||25||Gore, Frank IND RB|
|4.12||48||Johnson, Andre IND WR|
|5.01||49||Kelce, Travis KCC TE|
|6.12||72||Wallace, Mike MIN WR|

|12.12||144||Bridgewater, Teddy MIN QB|
|13.01||145||Dorsett, Phillip IND WR|
|14.12||168||Dunbar, Lance DAL RB|
|15.01||169||Palmer, Carson ARI QB|
|16.12||192||Gray, Jonas NEP RB|
|17.01||193||Gabriel, Taylor CLE WR|
|18.12||216||Starks, James GBP RB|
|19.01||217||Colts, Indianapolis IND Def|
|20.12||240||Carpenter, Dan BUF PK|
Fade the QB position. Focus on RB out of the gate, and continue to add value a TE and WR as the draft progresses.
Demarco Murray – 2.12. In the ‘Look what I found’ category, landing Murray at the end of the second round is near the top of the list in this draft. Murray has the upside potential to be a top 10 fantasy back this season, and grabbing him at the end of round 2 was huge value for Bloom.
Teddy Bridgewater – 12.12. Laying off the QB position in a 4pt per passing TD league is smart, but you can wait too long before taking a QB. When you do, you land guy like Bridgewater as your starter and you have to hope that your other positions carry you throughout the season. Bridgewater is mid-range QB2 in this format, but Bloom is going to have to platoon him with Carson Palmer every week.
If you’re going to lay off he QB position this badly, you’re going to need a strong team at RB/WR/TE. Bloom did just that. When you look at his team, you really see how the strategy can work. Concede that your QB will never win you any games and just pound the core positions at every chance you can, building a solid base. Bloom did that perfectly. LeVeon Bell is only missing two games, so grabbing him at #1 overall is a no brainer now. Murray and Frank Gore gave Bloom three solid RBs to start the draft. Travis Kelce is a solid TE, but Bloom didn’t overpay for him at 5.01 and his stable of wide receivers is pretty reasonable given he only took one of them in the first six rounds. Bloom’s drafted a very strong team and if his QB doesn’t implode every week, he’s going to be tough to beat.

Daniel Simpkins - Draft Position 2
|1.02||2||Brown, Antonio PIT WR|
|2.11||23||Cooks, Brandin NOS WR|
|3.02||26||Gordon, Melvin SDC RB|
|4.11||47||Bryant, Martavis PIT WR|
|5.02||50||Yeldon, T.J. JAC RB|
|6.11||71||Watkins, Sammy BUF WR|

|8.11||95||Tannehill, Ryan MIA QB|
|9.02||98||Johnson, David ARI RB|
|10.11||119||Seferian-Jenkins, Austin TBB TE|
|11.02||122||Sims, Charles TBB RB|
|12.11||143||Parker, DeVante MIA WR|
|13.02||146||Cobb, David TEN RB|
|14.11||167||Patterson, Cordarrelle MIN WR|
|15.02||170||Williams, DeAngelo PIT RB|
|16.11||191||Michael, Christine SEA RB|
|17.02||194||Sanchez, Mark PHI QB|
|18.11||215||Reed, Jordan WAS TE|
|19.02||218||Vikings, Minnesota MIN Def|
|20.11||239||Prater, Matt DET PK|
Load up on the rookies – especially at running back. Fade the TE position and hope someone emerges.
Antonio Brown – 1.02. Brown is projected to be a top five fantasy finisher in a PPR format, and could very easily be the #1 overall performer this season. With LeVeon Bell’s suspension reduced to only two games, Brown won’t be expected to carry the entire team as originally feared. Look for another solid performance for him again this season, and he should easily be the top fantasy WR this year.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins – 10.11. Simpkins faded the TE position until late in the 10th round, and then landed a TE that’s going in the 14th based on current ADP with projections to finish outside of the top 15 for fantasy TES. The Tampa passing game is going to struggle a bit this season, and guys like Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson were both knocked down for it. Seferian-Jenkins might be the safety valve that Jameis Winston turns to, but are betting on that every week is a big gamble.

Austin Lee - Draft Position 3
|1.03||3||Gronkowski, Rob NEP TE|
|2.10||22||Evans, Mike TBB WR|
|3.03||27||Forsett, Justin BAL RB|
|4.10||46||Matthews, Jordan PHI WR|
|5.03||51||Stewart, Jonathan CAR RB|
|6.10||70||Coleman, Tevin ATL RB|
|7.03||75||Brees, Drew NOS QB|
|8.10||94||Smith, Torrey SFO WR|
|9.03||99||Ivory, Chris NYJ RB|
|10.10||118||Randle, Rueben NYG WR|

|12.10||142||White, James NEP RB|
|13.03||147||McKinnon, Jerick MIN RB|
|14.10||166||Clay, Charles BUF TE|
|15.03||171||Flacco, Joe BAL QB|
|16.10||190||Wilson, Marquess CHI WR|
|17.03||195||Floyd, Malcom SDC WR|
|18.10||214||Wright, Jarius MIN WR|
|19.03||219||Bengals, Cincinnati CIN Def|
|20.10||238||Barth, Connor DEN PK|
Go big with Rob Gronkowski right out of the gate and hunt for value at RB and WR after that.
Justin Forsett – 3.03. Forsett is going to be a solid back this season, especially in a PPR league. His ADP is somewhere around 3.03, so Austin didn’t land him for any particular value from that prospective. However, if you consider that Forsett has the potential to be a top 10 RB in a PPR format, landing him in the third round is really solid value and a good addition to a team that went hard after Rob Gronkowski right out of the gate.
Brian Quick – 11.03. Lee pulled off a solid draft, and he really didn’t have a ‘bad’ pick in the draft. However, if you have to call one his ‘worst’, then taking Brian Quick three rounds ahead of his ADP is probably the winner. That being said, Quick is #5 on Lee’s depth chart for wide receivers so if he reached a little for him, it probably didn’t hurt.
Post Draft Questions
1. Explain why drafting in a season long league with in-season waivers and/or trades is different from drafting a best ball league or MFL10?
Best-ball draft strategy differs greatly from traditional draft strategy. In traditional leagues, I don't draft a kicker unless I have to, and I often forego drafting a backup defense, tight end, and quarterback. The shallower the league, the more likely I am to just load up on running backs and wide receivers. It's easy to find replacements and bye week fillers. In a best-ball league, I draft at least two players with different bye weeks at every position.
Consistency impacts player value in different ways. In a traditional league, I rarely draft inconsistent bench players that lack the upside to become regular starters. Last year's Antone Smith and Allen Hurns come to mind. But in best-ball, you're drafting for the number of weekly starts each player is likely to have for your team. In PPR leagues, both Smith and Hurns become late-round fliers because they're likely to get a few monster plays during the season that catapult them into your starting lineup. When you don't have to predict which weeks will be big for them, you benefit from their production.
2. Leagues can sometimes be won with successful drafting in the middle rounds. Who is one player that you are targeting this year in the 10th round or later and explain why you have high expectations.
In the middle rounds, I like targeting second and third receivers in high-passing-volume offenses. Ben McAdoo guided the team to the fifth-most plays and seventh most passing yards per game in his first year as the Giants' offensive coordinator. Despite optimistic reports coming out of New York, I'm not high on Victor Cruz returning to top form. I prefer the value that Rueben Randle offers 50 spots later in the draft. Randle's ADP is outside of the top 50 receivers in PPR leagues, but I view him as a top-35 receiver with WR2 upside.
3. In your opinion, what is the biggest drafting mistake that people make in season long leagues?
In traditional season-long leagues, too many people draft mediocre production over upside in the middle-to-late rounds. Borderline starters, even if they're consistent, don't win championships and are terrible trade bait. Take more chances on boom-or-bust guys. Be patient with some of them, and churn your roster with others. With a bit of waiver wire work, you'll find a diamond in the rough.
Steve Buzzard - Draft Position 4
|1.04||4||Beckham, Odell NYG WR|
|2.09||21||Hopkins, DeAndre HOU WR|
|3.04||28||Spiller, C.J. NOS RB|
|4.09||45||Rodgers, Aaron GBP QB|
|5.04||52||Jennings, Rashad NYG RB|
|6.09||69||Jackson, Vincent TBB WR|
|7.04||76||Ertz, Zach PHI TE|
|8.09||93||Cruz, Victor NYG WR|
|9.04||100||Colston, Marques NOS WR|
|10.09||117||Sankey, Bishop TEN RB|
|11.04||124||Bush, Reggie SFO RB|

|13.04||148||Harvin, Percy BUF WR|
|14.09||165||Herron, Dan IND RB|
|15.04||172||Griffin III, Robert WAS QB|
|16.09||189||Eagles, Philadelphia PHI Def|
|17.04||196||Wheaton, Markus PIT WR|
|18.09||213||Packers, Green Bay GBP Def|
|19.04||220||Crosby, Mason GBP PK|
|20.09||237||Hillman, Ronnie DEN RB|
Fade the RB position and focus on landing quality WRs that will churn out points each week. Grab a top shelf QB and focus on your PPR gems.
Aaron Rodgers – 4.09. Even in a 4pt per passing TD league, Aaron Rodgers looks like he will be the top fantasy QB this season. His current ADP has him going somewhere in the middle of the second round and landing him in the 4th was a huge find. It let Buzzard to lock in his QB position and focus on his RBs and WRs.
Rashad Jennings – 5.04. Focusing on WR came at a price and it was paid in Buzzard’s RB selections. C.J. Spiller was a weaker selection for the RB1 position, and Jennings is more of RB3 than an RB2 in a PPR league. His current ADP is near the end of the 6th round, so Buzzard had to reach a bit to get him, but it was more because of the run on RBs than anything else. Even worse for Buzzard is that he didn’t follow-up with another RB pick until Bishop Sankey at 10.09, meaning Jennings will be in the starting lineup most weeks.
Buzzard made a strong selection by getting Aaron Rodgers in the 4th and pounded the WR position with five of his first nine picks, giving himself a solid base to build from in a PPR league. He added Zack Ertz at TE which gives him a full stable of pass catchers, but he neglected the RB position for the first part of the draft and his team suffered for it. It’s important to avoid getting sucked into a run if you have value at other positions, but ignoring a trend for too long can cost you and Buzzard’s team was hurt by taking just two back in the first 10 picks. If you’re going to do that, you typically land two solid backs early and hope for them to stay healthy, but Buzzard waited until the 3rd and 5th round to get his. With a second and third tier back in the lineup each week, he’s really going to need his WR corps to perform.
Post Draft Questions
1. You selected Victor Cruz in the 8th round, so you must be high on his ability to return to form after his torn patellar tendon. What expectations do you have for Cruz in 2015?
In general I think the fantasy community over reacts to injuries and labeling players “injury prone” or taking them off their board due to injury. This is a part of the draft that I really like to take advantage of and I think Victor Cruz falls into this bucket this year. There are a couple of other things that led to taking him a little earlier. First, I was sniped on some of my sleepers in the few rounds before so I was willing to reach a little bit for the player I really wanted. Secondly, I grabbed Odell Beckham with my first round pick. If Beckham fails to live up to expectations odds are high that some of that will be because Cruz over performed his draft position.
2. Selecting a running back in the third round is becoming more common. Which back would you choose if all are available at your selection in round three? Explain why you prefer this player. (Frank Gore, C.J. Spiller, Lamar Miller, Melvin Gordon, Todd Gurley)
I really like the idea of taking a running back with that spot. In particular, of the ones that you mention I really like Gore, Spiller, and Gordon. These are my favorite because they are all in high powered offenses which can score several touchdowns and ice the clock with the run game. If I had the option to choose one it would Gordon because his upside is unknown at this point. It feels like the Chargers think they have something special in Gordon with how much they spent on him in the draft and they should give him every opportunity to succeed.
3. What pick of yours do you feel you received the best value selecting him where you did?
I normally hate to be one of the first people to draft a quarterback but getting Aaron Rodgers in the fourth round felt like a huge steal to me. It’s easy to get caught up in trying to get value at quarterback but Rodgers is one of those guys that can absolutely win a league for you. When you compare him to the players that were drafted in the fourth round it is clear who I would rather have every time.

|20.08||236||Hawkins, Andrew CLE WR|
Focus on RB early, and lay off the WR position a bit. Fade the TE position as well, and draft a good QB as your starter.
T.Y. Hilton – 3.05. Hilton should be a top 10 fantasy WR this season, especially in a PPR format. He’s a WR1 for most fantasy teams, but Mamula landed him in the third round to pair him with Alshon Jeffery. Big value and a very strong start to the WR position.
Darren McFadden – 8.08. I’m not a fan of handcuffing RBs in traditional fantasy leagues. Best Ball format leagues are fine because you don’t have to think about who to start, but in this case, Mamula has set himself up to have to make that decision every week. Add to it the fact that McFadden is on a new team, always banged up, and currently nursing another hamstring injury and he’s a big risk to take with an 8th round pick.

Grab a solid TE early and focus on RB/WR in the early rounds. Hold off a bit on the quarterback position, then get two solid guys to run a QBBC. If they are related, that’s even better.
Peyton Manning – 7.06. Stacking Peyton Manning with Demaryius Thomas might be a DFS approach, but it works well in traditional fantasy leagues as well. Manning is on the downward slide, but he’s still going to have his fair share of TD passes, and landing him in the 7th round was solid value. Peyton is going in the 4th round of most leagues right now, and even in a 4 pt. per TD passing league like this one, it’s hard to pass him up at 7.06. When he and Thomas connect, this team is going to do very well.
Jimmy Graham – 3.06. Graham wasn’t a bad pick per se, and 3.06 is about where he’s going in most leagues. But the league was in the middle of a pretty strong RB run with five of the previous six picks being RB. By taking Graham, Wimer bucked the trend, but it cost him because another seven RBs went before Wimer was on the clock again at 4.07. Travis Kelce didn’t go until 5.01 and Greg Olsen went at 5.07. Both are comparable picks with Graham where Wimer could have landed Jeremy Hill at 3.06 compared with Latavius Murray at 4.07 (about a 60 point difference based on current projections).

1. You have expressed an interest in the early round tight end selection. Why is this a good strategy to use and how do you attack your draft if you draft a tight end early?
This year I am trying to draft at least one of the few available elite tight ends in my PPR leagues because the drop-off between the top five-to-six guys at that position and the next tier is much wider than the difference between the elite tier of running backs and the next tier - and depth at wide receiver is very good in this year's draft pool, making that position less urgent once you get past the elite tier of wide receivers.
So in essence I am aiming for an elite tight end (like Jimmy Graham, who I was thrilled to see waiting for me at pick 3.06 in the third round) and an elite wide receiver to anchor my PPR teams this year, while generally fading the #2 running back position and going with someone other than Andrew Luck at quarterback. Really solid quarterbacks are available well into the middle rounds of the drafts I've been in this year, so there is little urgency to select a premium quarterback early in drafts this year.
For example, Ben Roethlisberger was there for Matt Waldman at 7.07 and I got Peyton Manning at 7.06 to pair with my elite wide receiver, Demaryius Thomas. My "backup" quarterback is Eli Manning (10.07), who has huge upside in year two of offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo running the system for New York - Eli Manning is surrounding with top-notch receiving talent in Odell Beckham Jr, Reuben Randle, Larry Donnell and Shane Vereen, and he may be getting Victor Cruz back healthy as well. When both Peyton and Eli Manning have good passing matchups in the same week I will have a tough choice to make. Also, having Eli Manning in what figures to be a tightly contested NFC East division helps insulate me from the possibility that Denver runs away with the AFC West and then elects to rest Peyton Manning towards the end of December (or if Peyton Manning's arm fades at the end of 2015).
2. Choose two players that you selected later in the draft and explain why you have interest in them this year.
I really liked the pair of receivers I landed at 11.06 and 12.07, Marvin Jones and Jermaine Kearse. They illustrate what I mean when I say that the depth at wide receiver this year is copious. Jones had 10 TD catches two seasons ago before an unfortunate foot injury cost him the 2014 season, and Andy Dalton should bounce back with Jones and A.J. Green both healthy and ready to start again in Cincinnati here in 2015. Kearse and Russell Wilson built on their chemistry during the playoffs last year, and Wilson just signed a monster $87.6 million contract with $21 million up front and $60 million guaranteed. I think Seattle takes the shackles off Wilson this year and ask him to throw the ball from the pocket a lot more (they have that much $$ invested in him, so they won't want to risk him scrambling around a whole bunch) - and with Jimmy Graham in town demanding coverage from opposing secondaries, Kearse should shake loose for long gainers/long bomb TDs with regularity, in my opinion. When the passing matchup is good for Seattle, I'll play both Kearse and Graham without hesitation.
3. Does your drafting strategy change knowing you can make in-season waiver pick ups? Explain why this could be beneficial.
Having the ability to go to the waiver wire absolutely allows a fantasy owner to gamble more with their late-round picks. Duron Carter at 20.07 is just a pure roll of the dice - if he doesn't land a sizable role in the Indianapolis passing attack by regular season, I can drop him for the waiver wire "flavor of the week" with little regret in a redraft league like this. I chose him for my "Hail Mary" pick because he plays with Luck/Indianapolis and if circumstances break right for Carter, he could be hugely productive on that squad. At least I get the first look at Carter before other owners, and if he DOES hit for my squad I'll be in a great position at wide receiver.

Grab 2 solid RB and then lay of the position a bit while focusing on WR and TE.
Jeremy Hill – 3.07. While landing Marshawn Lynch in the 1st was a big win for Waldman, it was finding Jeremy Hill still available at 3.07 that made the start of the draft for him. Hill is a RB1 type back in a PPR format and he has legitimate top 10 fantasy potential. Landing him in the middle of the 3rd round is excellent value.
Eric Decker – 8.06. Decker wasn’t a bad pick in the middle of the 8th round, but as at WR3 goes, he’s just ‘OK. His current projections have him at the bottom of the WR3 tier and the huge question marks at QB in New York make him a huge question mark this season. Waldman won’t be looking for Decker to carry his team in any given week, but Decker will be a part of the starting lineup. Waldman found some great value at the RB position, which means something had to suffer. WR3/WR4 was the place and it means living with Eric Decker as one of your starters from week to week.
Post Draft Questions
1. How much of a factor do you put into strength of schedule in Weeks 14-16 when drafting a team with in-season waivers? What about bye weeks?
Strength of Schedule?
Zilch. Nada. Zero. None. There is too much variability with injuries, scheme changes, free agency, and rookie development for me to dig too deep into SOS analysis until at least Week 3. There is also such as a thing as over planning. It's one thing for Bill Walsh to practice a seldom-used play where the receiver works to the back of the end zone when the quarterback breaks the pocket and it becomes a dynasty-defining play in a conference championship game. It's entirely another thing to plan your personnel decisions specifically for Week 15. It can be a factor, but it shouldn't be the overriding one.
I also don't get too engrossed in bye weeks. If I have a lot of players sharing the same bye week, I'm almost relieved because it means that my team will have one rough week if the unit plays to my expectations. If it's spread out, then I'm counting on depth to carry me. My team has the kind of depth. Tony Romo as a QB2 is a lot better than what I normally pick in the second half of the 11th round. Steve Smith was WR17 in PPR last year but his ADP plummeted when the team considered limiting his looks. This week, the Ravens admitted that Smith will be a full-time option once again. Getting a player who was a quality WR2 in the 9th round as my fourth receiver is also what I call depth.
The same can be said of my tight ends. Vernon Davis was hurt last year. Sure, the connection with Colin Kapernick might be the bigger factor, but any commentary I'm reading that suggests Davis is going to lose a significant amount of his great athleticism now that he's 30 must have been written by analysts under the age of 25. I'm sure this was true of writers knocking Steve Smith's release from the Panthers last year and it took at least thee false starts for them to get it right about Antonio Gates and Tony Gonzalez, if they ever did get it right about Gonzalez before he retired.
My team might not have a lot of players that fantasy analysts love to hype as the next young star, but I have proven production and veteran talent that will give my team continuity and keep me competitive.
2. It's popular to select player on high scoring offenses. Who are some players that you would target on average or even low scoring offenses? Explain why drafting such a player or players can be beneficial.
Thinking about your players in context of the offense is a good way to go about your pre-draft analysis. Another way is to look at players who are productive because of their role in the scheme. That's what I choose to do. Are the Raiders a high-scoring unit? You might need to blow the thick layer of dust off the record books in Oakland to find the last time that happened. It didn't stop me from coveting rookie receiver Amari Cooper.
Cooper will be the primary option on an offense that will be facing deficits if the defense continues to play like it did last year. Cooper's skills influence me far more than looking at an end-product number about scoring last year. Tim Brown and Jerry Rice have told media during the past month that Amari Cooper is the real deal and an instant impact player with excellent route skills. Cooper is far more than a deep threat, which means he should earn a lot of catches. That's what you want in PPR leagues.
Greg Olsen is a working example of that idea. He has been a top-10 tight end for three consecutive years under Cam Newton, a good but not great passer in an offense that has been no better than 18th in scoring since 2012. Did you forsake Mike Evans last year because he was on the Buccaneers? Tampa was 30th in scoring in 2013 and 29th in scoring last year. It didn't stop Evans and shouldn't have dissuaded you. It's about talent, opportunity, and role in scheme, not offensive scoring.
3. You selected Ray Rice in the 18th round. What current free agent running backs (or players in general) would you recommend targeting as a flier later in the draft? Explain your thoughts.
I recommend Ray Rice. If domestic violence prevention advocates are recommending to the NFL that Ray Rice get a second chance, the stance against signing Rice may soften as the season nears and players get hurt. I studied Rice during the preseason last year. Any commentary that Rice slowed down and lost something last year is an indication that someone didn't do his or her homework. The only thing Rice lost in 2013 was optimal functioning of his hips and legs due to injury and it temporarily slowed him down behind a line that didn't do a great job for his replacements, either. I'll take a shot on Rice now, knowing that if he's not added within the first 4-6 weeks, I can drop him for nothing rather than have to spend my entire waiver budget for a shot at him.
There are no other free agent backs that I would recommend as of this time. Steven Jackson and Chris Johnson are lobbying for a return, but they out of the league due to their performances on the field. There is one player that is on a team's waiting list. His skills fit the team and the team has a strong supporting cast. I cannot recommend him yet so it's not worth mentioning him by name until he gets a shot..
As for players to target late as fliers you want high-upside options. You want players that, if they pan out, can produce to the expectations that you had for one of your picks during the first 5-7 rounds. How to find that? There's no tried-and-true way, but I believe the starting point is talent and projecting how NFL teams typically regard certain physical talents to role. For instance, the Broncos picked Demaryius Thomas as a successor to Brandon Marshall's role and selected Cody Latimer as potential continuity for Thomas' role if an injury strikes. If there was a receiver on the depth chart that I considered a high upside pick, he would have to come close to matching the athleticism of Thomas and Latimer or he'd have to possess skills that transcend height and weight--think about how Odell Beckham and Steve Smith "play big."

Focus on RB/WR and draft a QB that can score with his legs.
Cam Newton – 7.08. Plenty of teams faded the QB position because of the 4 pts per passing TD. Miglio was smart though, and grabbed Cam Newton in the middle of the 7th. Newton’s ADP is a full round higher than that already, and the threat of him scoring a rushing TD or five makes him a great pick in this format.
Doug Baldwin – 11.08. Baldwin was a bit of a reach, taking him in the 11th round, but calling him Miglio’s worst pick is more about the fact that Baldwin was the 4th receiver that he took. In a PPR league with a flex position, you are going to want to have a solid set of WRs and while Dez Bryant, Kelvin Benjamin an Keenan Allen are a good starting three, you want to have a decent #4 for flex, bye weeks and injuries. Doug Baldwin is OK, but not really what you want at WR4.
Post Draft Questions
1. You selected four Panthers, including Cam Newton and both of their top receivers, Kelvin Benjamin and Devin Funchess. What are your expectations for the Carolina offense this year?
There wasn’t a particular plan to target Carolina skill players. This was simply a case of grabbing value where I could. That was especially true with Cam Newton, whom I had targeted as a sixth-round pick as the best value and narrowly escaped with him in the middle of a big quarterback run.
The Panthers offense should see steady improvement in 2015. The biggest plus is Cam Newton’s health—he is already ahead of where he was a year ago, given he missed most of the offseason and preseason due to ankle surgery. Newton’s rib injury in his only preseason action made matters worse. There was simply no rapport with an entirely new wide receiver corps, including a rookie No. 1 who had some big games with and without Newton.
Newton still wound up eighth in per-game fantasy scoring despite throwing just 18 touchdowns, a tribute to his running ability. The Panthers eased him in, but he wound up third in rushing and second in ground scoring at his position.
Having Newton healthy all preseason should be a boon for Benjamin, who is a massive red zone threat. Hopefully a year of seasoning has cured him of concentration issues, though it’s possible they might plague him in perpetuity.
As for rookies Devin Funchess and Cameron Artis-Payne—those are high-upside guys who line my deep bench in this format. Funchess is a bit of an insurance policy for Benjamin, but he should wind up being the No. 2 receiver this year. At 6’4” and 232 pounds, Funchess will join Benjamin and tight end Greg Olsen as superior red zone threats. Artis-Payne is in a bit of a muddled situation behind Jonathan Stewart, but an injury to the latter could mean big touches for the Auburn product.
2. Do you draft any differently for a league that has in-season waivers vs. an MFL10 format? Explain your answer.
For starters, the MFL10 format means you must take three quarterbacks and tight ends. There are arguments for keeping that down to two players—especially at quarterback, where there is no flex—but injury risks and bye weeks must be taken into account. There is absolutely no reason to take more than two at each position in season-long formats, and leagues with short benches mean taking one of each.
It is even more explicit when selecting defenses—you should absolutely roll with multiple units in best-ball formats, but taking just one in traditional season-long leagues is more than enough. Sometimes I forego a kicker or defense altogether if the draft allows it—why not have that extra skill player or two in case someone goes down during the preseason?
I am not a subscriber to the Zero RB strategy, but this is also an area where strategies diverge between formats. Zero RB simply doesn’t work in best-ball formats—there are no opportunities to troll the waiver wire during the season, so you would be relying on a bunch of darts.
3. You managed to stack your roster with QB-WR combinations for the Panthers and Chargers. Explain why you like this strategy in a draft.
This wasn’t an outright strategy of mine—again, it’s more about drafting the best values than anything—but it’s an intriguing import from the DFS world. That’s not to say that season-long stacks are new, but they certainly have their benefits. If you have a good quarterback-receiver combination, chances are they will put up a good floor for your roster.
As for my specific stacks, I think they might be undervalued. As I mentioned, the Newton-Benjamin rapport should be light years ahead of where it was heading into 2014 thanks to good health. Keenan Allen had a bit of a sophomore slump due to a lack of touchdowns, but we’ve already seen what he can do with Rivers. His target count should only go up with Antonio Gates aging and suspended, and that touchdown rate—all of 3.3 percent, third-worst and half the average among the top 50 fantasy receivers—should see a positive regression after a down year.
Jeff Tefertiller - Draft Position 9
|1.09||9||Jones, Julio ATL WR|
|2.04||16||Forte, Matt CHI RB|
|3.09||33||Gurley, Todd STL RB|
|4.04||40||Luck, Andrew IND QB|

|18.04||208||Hardy, Justin ATL WR|
|19.09||225||Miller, Heath PIT TE|
|20.04||232||Powell, Bilal NYJ RB|
Balanced attack, focused on value. Grab a top QB early.
Matt Forte – 2.04. In a PPR format, Forte is going to be one of the top running backs in the league from a fantasy prospective. Some projections have him as high as the #2 fantasy back behind Le’Veon Bell. Landing Forte in the second round is huge value.
Brandon Lafell – 5.09. Lafell is going to be the #3 wide receiver option on a team that won’t have Tom Brady for the first four games of the season (assuming his suspension still holds up). It’s hard to see LaFell pulling down a lot of big games this season with that stacked against him, and Tefertiller reached a bit taking him in the 5th. LaFell is really a WR3 in this format, and his current ADP has him going in the 7th or 8th round right now. Other receivers like Brandon Marshall or Golden Tate are rated much higher and could have been taken here instead of LaFell.

|18.03||207||Royal, Eddie CHI WR|
|19.10||226||Cook, Jared STL TE|
|20.03||231||Parkey, Cody PHI PK|
Draft a RB and a WR at every turn for the first 3 rounds, and then focus on value pays at QB and TE position.
Eddie Lacy – 1.10. Eddie Lacy often gets overlooked in a PPR leagues for some reason. Maybe because of his big size and punishing style, you tend to forget that he has pretty solid hands as well. Whatever the reason though, Vanderwoude scored big with a top five fantasy back at the end of the 1st round. Lacy is going as high #2 overall in many fantasy leagues, so landing him at 1.10 was solid value.
Julian Edelman – 4.03. Tom Brady’s suspension has been held to four games now and even though he’s battling it in court, it’s safe to assume that he’s going to miss those four games now. That means the New England WR corps is a huge risk, and Edelman’s ADP has fallen into the 5th round now. Vanderwoude could have landed a guy like Jordan Matthews or Amari Cooper at 4.03 instead of reaching for Edelman.

|20.02||230||Bryant, Matt ATL PK|
Grab 2 RBS early, then pound the WR position for the first part of the draft.
Emanual Sanders – 4.02. Sander is a solid pick in a PPR league, and his ADP is in the top half of the 3rd round. Alexander was able to nab him at the top of the 4th round, and pair him with Jordy Nelson to give him a strong start at the WR position.
Tyler Eifert – 10.02. Alexander focused on the WR position a little too long and ignored the TE position until all of the top choices were gone. Eifert was the 12th TE taken off the board, and the 10th round is about 3 rounds higher than his current ADP. Other players like Josh Hill and Kyle Rudolph are projected to be better performers than Eifert and they were both available at 10.02 as well. Eifert is a big reach for Alexander, and that could cost him.

|20.01||229||Smith, Geno NYJ QB|
Seriously fade the QB position and focus on RB and WR.
C.J. Anderson – 1.12. Anderson’s fallen down the draft board a bit, but he’s still a solid RB1 in a PPR league. He’s a top 10 fantasy back with upside potential, and landing him at the end of the first round is pretty good.
Allen Robinson – 5.12. Drafting any WR from Jacksonville this season is a bit of a gamble but if you’re going to get one, Robinson is probably the guy. However, his current ADP has him somewhere around a 7th round value and he’s a low WR3 option in this type of fantasy league. Ari reached for him in at the 5/6 turn, and will be looking for Robinson to start every week on his fantasy team. Ari would have been better waiting on Robinson and drafting a guy like Golden Tate who has a more proven track record or Sammy Watkins who has some upside potential.
