Get your guys. It sounds simple enough, right? If there are players you want on your Fantasy team then you should draft them if you have the chance. You don't want to leave your draft with any regrets.

We held a 12-team, PPR mock draft on Wednesday as part of our Fantasy Football Today Draft-A-Thon, which benefits the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. If you'd like to donate, we would greatly appreciate it, and you can do so right here.

This draft featured an amazing group of Fantasy analysts, including Adam Rank and Marcas Grant of the NFL Network, Jake Ciely and Nando Di Fino of The Athletic, Andy Holloway of the Fantasy Footballers, Chris Harris of Harris Football, Joe Pisapia of Fantasy Pros, professional wrestler Eric Young and Scott Fish, who runs the Scott Fish Bowl. We also had me, Dave Richard and Heath Cummings from CBS Sports.

I knew that drafting with these analysts would make it tough to get the players that I wanted -- unless I was aggressive. So I didn't hesitate to potentially reach for my guys.

That started in Round 1 at No. 11 overall with Antonio Gibson. I love Gibson, and he's a top-eight running back in my rankings. He has top-five upside this season, and I didn't want Harris to get him at No. 12 or 13. It worked out well since Jonathan Taylor fell into my lap in Round 2. I like Taylor also, and I was thrilled with this start.

We start three receivers in this league, and I wanted at least one standout option there, so I drafted Amari Cooper in Round 3. While I like CeeDee Lamb slightly better than Cooper -- Lamb went six picks earlier in Round 3 to Pisapia -- I still like Cooper a lot. He's an excellent Fantasy receiver to pair with Gibson and Taylor.

In Round 4, I might have made a mistake drafting my third running back in Myles Gaskin instead of a second receiver like Chris Godwin, Tyler Lockett or Cooper Kupp. But Gaskin is one of my guys, and I wanted him to be my flex.

I didn't have to reach for one of my guys in Round 5 because T.J. Hockenson was available at No. 59 overall. He's my favorite breakout tight end, and I would gladly draft him in this range in any league.

In Round 6, I pivoted from my usual approach of waiting on a quarterback to select Lamar Jackson. He was excellent value at the time, and he's one of the biggest difference makers in Fantasy when he's on his game.

Ja'Marr Chase, because of his poor play in the preseason, fell to me in Round 7, and I was happy to get him. Then, in Round 8, I took another one of my guys in Jakobi Meyers, who should be the best receiver in New England and is a quality No. 3 Fantasy receiver for this team.

A.J. Dillon (Round 9) and Marquez Callaway (Round 10) are two other of my favorite players, and I loved their value here. So far, I was thrilled with this roster construction.

I added to my receiving corps with Jarvis Landry (Round 11), Sterling Shepard (Round 12) and Rashod Bateman (Round 14). And I also drafted a lottery-ticket running back in Tony Jones (Round 13), who appears to be the No. 2 running back for the Saints behind Alvin Kamara.

I'm excited to go into the season with this Fantasy team. I don't have any regrets following the draft because I was able to get plenty of my guys.

In this league, all touchdowns are worth six points, and we award one point for every 10 yards rushing and receiving and one point for every 25 yards passing. We also award one point for every reception. We feature a starting lineup of QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, FLEX (RB/WR/TE), K and DST. There also are six reserve spots for a 16-round draft.

1. Marcas Grant, NFL Network
2. Andy Holloway, Fantasy Footballers
3. Adam Rank, NFL Network
4. Scott Fish, Scott Fish Bowl
5. Joe Pisapia, Fantasy Pros
