We held our final 12-team, PPR draft of the season Tuesday, and I had one goal in mind with this roster. I wanted to draft players that I haven't selected much of this year.

With that in mind, from the No. 5 overall pick, I went with Austin Ekeler instead of Derrick Henry. I also drafted Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the third round. And, for the first time in more than 20 drafts, I selected Kyle Pitts in Round 4.

These are three players I love for this season but haven't had much opportunity to draft. Ekeler is a PPR star, and he could finish as a top-five running back. Edwards-Helaire is a breakout candidate, and I was thrilled to get him in Round 3. And Pitts could be awesome, even as a rookie tight end, but I had to reach to get him in Round 4.

I liked the way my team came together, especially at running back with Ekeler, Edwards-Helaire, Damien Harris and Darrell Henderson. My receivers are DeAndre Hopkins, Robby Anderson, Laviska Shenault, Eljah Moore, Sterling Shepard and A.J. Green. And I have a good quarterback duo of Matthew Stafford and Trevor Lawrence.

This is a quality roster in what should be a competitive league, which features members of our Fantasy Football Today show on CBS Sports HQ, as well as our FFT Podcast. And we will be talking about this league all throughout the season on our programs.

I won this league last season, so hopefully I can be a repeat champion. It will be great if Ekeler, Edwards-Helaire and Pitts lead the way since I went out of the way to draft them in this league.

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 15-round draft.

Our draft order is as follows:

1. Heath Cummings, Senior Fantasy Writer
2. Dave Richard, Senior Fantasy Writer
3. Pete Prisco, Senior NFL Writer
4. Ben Schragger, FFT Podcast Producer
5. Jamey Eisenberg, Senior Fantasy Writer
6. Chris Towers, Senior Editor, Fantasy
7. Will Brinson, Senior NFL Writer
8. Adam Aizer, FFT Podcast Host
9. R.J. White, Managing Editor, SportsLine and CBS Fantasy
10. George Maselli, Fantasy Editor
11. Meron Berkson, CBS Sports HQ Producer
12. Jack Capotorto, CBS Sports HQ Producer
