Every year we get asked by Fantasy owners if they can play in a league with us. And for the past four years, we have given you a chance to join our 14-team Podcast Fantasy League.
We choose 11 listeners at random to play in a league with myself, Dave Richard, Nathan Zegura and Adam Aizer. Hopefully you all listen to our podcast for the useful information and witty banter, but there's extra incentive every August if you want to challenge the analysts in a real league.
This is a 14-team PPR league, and it's interesting to see how the casual Fantasy owner -- some seasoned pros, some novice -- builds their team. There weren't many surprise selections early on, though seeing Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Johnson fall to Round 3 in a PPR league won't happen often.
For the most part, this draft went like the majority of 14-team PPR leagues, and it should serve as a good guide for you on Draft Day. Just make sure you get Fitzgerald and Johnson a little earlier in your leagues.
As always, we ask you to share your thoughts on this draft. Take advantage of our Fantasy Football Twitter feed (@CBSFantasyFB) and post your comments there, or share your thoughts on our Fantasy Football Facebook page.
In this league, all touchdowns are worth six points, and we award one point for every 10 yards rushing and receiving, one point for every 25 yards passing and one point for every reception. We feature a starting lineup of QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, K, DST and a FLEX (RB/WR/TE). There will also be five reserve spots for a 14-round draft.
