Official OBR Fantasy Football League Draft Results

The Official OBR Fantasy Football League had it's draft Sunday Night. Here are the results and some thoughts on the league that we will cover all season long.

This FFL draft is the starting point for a season-long series covering this official OBR league. Weekly we will look at results, records, moves made and even publicly shame owners who are not actively involved like they promised to be. A couple of teams have made moves already since the draft, noted as "Free Agency" next to the player's name.

For now, time to take a look at the team's, their best picks, question marks and quick overall thoughts. Starting with mine:

Nothing Pryor Counts

QB Carson Palmer, Ari QB Draft
RB Carlos Hyde, SF RB Draft
RB Melvin Gordon, SD RB Draft
WR Odell Beckham Jr., NYG WR Draft
WR Amari Cooper, Oak WR Draft
TE Jimmy Graham, Sea TE  Q Draft
FLEX Doug Baldwin, Sea WR Draft
D/ST Raiders D/ST D/ST Draft
K Sebastian Janikowski, Oak K Draft
Bench Giovani Bernard, Cin RB Draft
Bench Tyler Eifert*, Cin TE  O Draft
Bench Kevin White, Chi WR Draft
Bench Bilal Powell, NYJ RB Draft
Bench Jameis Winston, TB QB Draft
Bench Christine Michael, Sea RB Draft
Bench Tajae Sharpe, Ten WR  P Draft

Best Pick - Beckham Jr. - With the 4th pick, OBJ was still available and had to be snatched up.
Question Mark(s) - Backup RBs and TEs. Bernard as the 3rd RB is concerning while Eifert & Graham are boom/bust options due to injury.
Overall - While not a PPR league, the quality of receivers on this team could pay off, either in points or for trades later.

Blown Assignments

QB Cam Newton, Car QB Draft
RB Matt Forte, NYJ RB  P Draft
RB Matt Jones, Wsh RB  Q Draft
WR A.J. Green, Cin WR Draft
WR Michael Floyd, Ari WR Draft
TE Greg Olsen, Car TE  P Draft
FLEX DeSean Jackson, Wsh WR Draft
D/ST Texans D/ST D/ST Draft
Bench T.J. Yeldon, Jax RB Draft
Bench Antonio Gates, SD TE Draft
Bench Andy Dalton, Cin QB Draft
Bench Tevin Coleman, Atl RB Draft
Bench Phillip Dorsett, Ind WR Draft
Bench Chris Hogan, NE WR Draft
Bench Bruce Ellington, SF WR  P Draft
Bench Robbie Gould, Chi K Free Agency

Best Pick - Green - With question marks at the rest of the pass catching positions in Cincy, AJ is bound to get a ton of catches.
Question Mark(s) - RB position is thin depending on aging Forte and an injured Jones as starters.
Overall - A team that doesn't look great going into the season but has a chance to surprise based on a few high end talents.

That "IT" Factor

QB Tony Romo, Dal QB Draft
RB Ezekiel Elliott, Dal RB  P Draft
RB Rashad Jennings, NYG RB Draft
WR T.Y. Hilton, Ind WR  P Draft
WR Eric Decker, NYJ WR  P Draft
TE Coby Fleener, NO TE Draft
FLEX Vincent Jackson, TB WR Draft
D/ST Jets D/ST D/ST Draft
K Blair Walsh, Min K Draft
Bench Le'Veon Bell, Pit RB  SSPD Draft
Bench Jarvis Landry, Mia WR Draft
Bench Josh Gordon, Cle WR  SSPD Draft
Bench Devin Funchess, Car WR Draft
Bench Devontae Booker, Den RB Draft
Bench Dwayne Allen, Ind TE Draft
Bench Brock Osweiler, Hou QB Draft

Best Pick - Bell - With the 19th pick, Bell, who is only suspended 3 games, will look like a steal late in the season.
Question Mark(s) - QB - Romo is often injured while Brock proved very little last season.
Overall - The high risk, reward team with Bell and Gordon, has a depth at WR and RB positions.

Dez-truction Squad

QB Blake Bortles, Jax QB Draft
RB Lamar Miller, Hou RB Draft
RB Jonathan Stewart, Car RB Draft
WR Dez Bryant, Dal WR Draft
WR Demaryius Thomas, Den WR Draft
TE Delanie Walker, Ten TE Draft
FLEX Larry Fitzgerald, Ari WR  Q Draft
D/ST Panthers D/ST D/ST Draft
K Matt Prater, Det K Draft
Bench DeVante Parker, Mia WR Draft
Bench Derek Carr, Oak QB Draft
Bench James Starks, GB RB Draft
Bench Mohamed Sanu, Atl WR Draft
Bench Zach Miller, Chi TE  P Draft
Bench Vikings D/ST D/ST Draft
Bench Darren Sproles, Phi RB Draft

Best Pick - Dez Bryant - First it gave the team their name. Second, at #11 Dez could be a top level WR once again this season, if healthy.
Question Mark(s) - QB - Bortles & Carr are good for their teams, maybe not for fantasy though.
Overall - Backups at every position means less changes during the season but hurts overall depth at important positions.

Otto Motleys

QB Tom Brady, NE QB  SSPD Draft
RB Adrian Peterson, Min RB Draft
RB Eddie Lacy, GB RB Draft
WR Jeremy Maclin, KC WR Draft
WR Julian Edelman, NE WR Draft
TE Clive Walford, Oak TE  P Draft
FLEX Mark Ingram, NO RB Draft
D/ST Patriots D/ST D/ST Draft
K Chandler Catanzaro, Ari K Draft
Bench Danny Woodhead, SD RB Draft
Bench Sterling Shepard, NYG WR Draft
Bench Willie Snead, NO WR Draft
Bench Marcus Mariota, Ten QB Draft
Bench Markus Wheaton, Pit WR  P Draft
Bench Jerick McKinnon, Min RB Draft
Bench Tyler Boyd, Cin WR Draft

Best Pick - Brady - With the 68th pick, Brady is a steal. He will come back angry and try to light up the competition. Mariota will have to do for 4 weeks.
Question Mark(s) - WR - Missing top end talent at the new most important position in the game. 
Overall - Has top end RB talent but seems like an old school approach to fantasy. 

Bernie Shuffle

QB Russell Wilson, Sea QB Draft
RB Jamaal Charles, KC RB  P Draft
RB DeMarco Murray, Ten RB Draft
WR DeAndre Hopkins, Hou WR Draft
WR Sammy Watkins, Buf WR Draft
TE Gary Barnidge, Cle TE  P Draft
FLEX Frank Gore, Ind RB Draft
D/ST Cardinals D/ST D/ST Draft
K Dan Bailey, Dal K Draft
Bench Allen Hurns, Jax WR Draft
Bench Chris Ivory, Jax RB Draft
Bench Kirk Cousins, Wsh QB Draft
Bench Jason Witten, Dal TE Draft
Bench Laquon Treadwell, Min WR Draft
Bench Kendall Wright, Ten WR  P Draft
Bench Charcandrick West, KC RB  P Draft

Best Pick - Charles - When healthy, he is an amazing, multi-threat player out of the backfield and should carry the load in KC.
Question Mark(s) - QB - While Wilson is great for Seattle, and Cousins had a good season in Washington, do either throw enough to be fantasy studs?
Overall - A ton of depth that could be held back by the QB spot. Has quality backups down the roster.

Let's Rac 'N Rolls

QB Drew Brees, NO QB Draft
RB Todd Gurley, LA RB Draft
RB Latavius Murray, Oak RB Draft
WR Brandon Marshall, NYJ WR Draft
WR Terrelle Pryor, Cle WR Draft
TE Jordan Reed, Wsh TE  P Draft
FLEX Marvin Jones, Det WR Draft
D/ST Rams D/ST D/ST Draft
K Brandon McManus, Den K Draft
Bench Justin Forsett, Bal RB Draft
Bench LeGarrette Blount, NE RB Draft
Bench Michael Thomas, NO WR Draft
Bench Martellus Bennett, NE TE Draft
Bench Chris Johnson, Ari RB Draft
Bench Braxton Miller, Hou WR Draft
Bench Tim Hightower, NO RB Draft

Best Pick - Brees - After adding good talent other places, getting Brees in the 5th is huge.
Question Mark(s) - Pryor the #2 WR, at pick 71? A little too Browns-fan of a pick.
Overall - Quality team with good upside on the bench that could help as the season goes on.

It's Third Down!!!

QB Philip Rivers, SD QB Draft
RB LeSean McCoy, Buf RB Draft
RB Jeremy Langford, Chi RB Draft
WR Julio Jones, Atl WR Draft
WR Alshon Jeffery, Chi WR Draft
TE Julius Thomas, Jax TE Draft
FLEX Kelvin Benjamin, Car WR Draft
D/ST Steelers D/ST D/ST Draft
K Justin Tucker, Bal K Draft
Bench Ameer Abdullah, Det RB  P Draft
Bench Corey Coleman, Cle WR  P Draft
Bench Derrick Henry, Ten RB Draft
Bench Steve Smith Sr., Bal WR  Q Draft
Bench Will Fuller, Hou WR Draft
Bench Eric Ebron, Det TE  Q Draft
Bench Matt Ryan, Atl QB Draft

Best Pick - McCoy with the 27th pick will be huge.
Question Mark(s) - TE - Thomas was a bust in year 1 in Jax and Ebron's health, hands are concerns.
Overall - Do they have enough RBs to make it through the season and get production?

Hue Knows

QB Ben Roethlisberger, Pit QB Draft
RB Jeremy Hill, Cin RB Draft
RB Ryan Mathews, Phi RB Draft
WR Jordy Nelson, GB WR  Q Draft
WR Brandin Cooks, NO WR Draft
TE Rob Gronkowski, NE TE  P Draft
FLEX John Brown, Ari WR  P Draft
D/ST Packers D/ST D/ST Draft
K Steven Hauschka, Sea K Draft
Bench Michael Crabtree, Oak WR Draft
Bench Torrey Smith, SF WR Draft
Bench Dion Lewis*, NE RB  O Draft
Bench Theo Riddick, Det RB Draft
Bench Travis Benjamin, SD WR Draft
Bench Shane Vereen, NYG RB Draft
Bench Mike Wallace, Bal WR Draft

Best Pick - Gronk - The best TE in the league could start out slow without Brady but should be a monster when he returns.
Question Mark(s) - Depending on Big Ben at the QB spot is concerning.
Overall - Points for the team name, taken away for Ben & Hill from Browns' rivals as the top 2 on his list. Solid all around team outside of QB.

Name TBD

QB Eli Manning, NYG QB Draft
RB David Johnson, Ari RB Draft
RB Doug Martin, TB RB  P Draft
WR Keenan Allen, SD WR Draft
WR Randall Cobb, GB WR Draft
TE Zach Ertz, Phi TE Draft
FLEX Golden Tate, Det WR  P Draft
D/ST Broncos D/ST D/ST Draft
K Mason Crosby, GB K Draft
Bench Emmanuel Sanders, Den WR Draft
Bench Jay Ajayi, Mia RB Draft
Bench Tyrod Taylor, Buf QB Draft
Bench Kamar Aiken, Bal WR Draft
Bench Sammie Coates, Pit WR Draft
Bench Kenneth Dixon, Bal RB Draft
Bench Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TB TE Draft

Best Pick - Tate - Getting the Lions #1 target at 55 is a great pick.
Question Mark(s) - RB depth - After the starters, the drop off is fast to Ajayi and Dixon as the only backups.
Overall - Much like my team, can the great WR group makeup for a suspect RB set?

Municipal Mad Dawgs

QB Aaron Rodgers, GB QB  P Draft
RB Devonta Freeman, Atl RB Draft
RB C.J. Anderson, Den RB Draft
WR Allen Robinson, Jax WR Draft
WR Tyler Lockett, Sea WR Draft
TE Charles Clay, Buf TE Draft
FLEX Duke Johnson Jr., Cle RB  P Draft
D/ST Seahawks D/ST D/ST Draft
K Stephen Gostkowski, NE K Draft
Bench Jordan Matthews, Phi WR  Q Draft
Bench Isaiah Crowell, Cle RB Draft
Bench Spencer Ware, KC RB Draft
Bench Robert Griffin, Cle QB Draft
Bench Chiefs D/ST D/ST Draft
Bench Jared Cook, GB TE Draft
Bench Alfred Morris, Dal RB Free Agency

Best Pick - Anderson/Crowell - Getting CJ at #34 and Crow at #106 seems like theft.
Question Mark(s) - WR - Can Lockett and Matthews be enough in the new, WR dependent Fantasy World?
Overall - With Rodgers and this RB group, team will be in many games but might not have the high end upside of some WR heavy teams.

Team James

QB Andrew Luck, Ind QB Draft
RB Thomas Rawls, Sea RB  P Draft
RB Arian Foster, Mia RB Draft
WR Antonio Brown, Pit WR Draft
WR Mike Evans, TB WR Draft
TE Travis Kelce, KC TE Draft
FLEX Donte Moncrief, Ind WR Draft
D/ST Bengals D/ST D/ST Draft
K Adam Vinatieri, Ind K Draft
Bench DeAngelo Williams, Pit RB Draft
Bench Stefon Diggs, Min WR Draft
Bench Charles Sims, TB RB Draft
Bench Tavon Austin, LA WR Draft
Bench Matthew Stafford, Det QB Draft
Bench Jordan Cameron, Mia TE Draft
Bench Terrance Williams, Dal WR Draft

Best Pick - Browns at #1 - The clear cut #1 pick but still a Fantasy stud.
Question Mark(s) - Luck - While the Colts QB is great in real life, he has not been a fantasy factor.
Overall - Drafting former Browns with the last two picks is concerning. A lot of names that are recognized but taking a risk on the combination of unproven or old could be a problem.
