20 Team Fantasy Football Draft Recap Pt. 1

Now entering our 3rd season of the 20 Team Fantasy Football league, we decided to make some changes to the league. First, we changed the rosters to feature just 1 RB and added a RB/WR/TE while shrinking the bench to just 4 spots. This should give teams much more flexibility in filling out their rosters come the BYE weeks. Also, we dropped QB TDs from 6 pts to 4 pts to level out the playing field a bit.

The Denver Broncos had 5 players selected in the first 60 picks.  The Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions each had 4 players drafted.

The Baltimore Ravens,  Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders and Tennessee Titans did not have a player drafted.

  • 24 RBs were drafted
  • 22 WRs
  • 10 QBs
  • 4  TEs

Last Season Draft Recap

Round 1

The draft started with Peyton Manning being selected 1st overall. All things considered, Molly's Business wasn't going to pick again until the 40th overall selection, so I think I would have gone with a RB here but to each their own. LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles and Matt Forte followed Manning, before Calvin Johnson separated Adrian Peterson from the group. Continuing with the usual draft order, Demaryius Thomas, Eddie Lacy, Jimmy Graham and Montee Ball (my selection) were picked before Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers were selected 11th and 12th overall. Now clearly you can not go wrong with those guys, and it does prevent you from relying on Eli Manning each week, but I am not sure I would feel comfortable with a QB this early. Then like a normal 2nd round would go in a 10 or 12 team league, A.J. Green, Julio Jones, Marshawn Lynch, Dez Bryant, Andre Ellington, DeMarco Murray, Brandon Marshall and Giovani Bernard finished the 1st round.

Round 2

Pen Island's Finest added Jordy Nelson to Bearnard to start the 2nd round. There were 3 big surprises in the 2nd round with Tom Brady going 25th overall and QB4, Chris Johnson going 27th overall to Das Komet (Jets fan) and Jay Cutler going 38th overall, QB5, to GmEn. Fatty Fall Down paired Randall Cobb with Aaron Rodgers, and 3 teams went RB/RB. I (KeithyP) drafted Ball and Le'Veon Bell, Vaughn's Team added Ryan Mathews to McCoy, and Mustangs added Zac Stacy to Lacy. Remember, this league features just 1 RB and a RB/WR/TE.
