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.
|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.
|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.
|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|

|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.
|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|

|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|

|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?
|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|

|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.
|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|

|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.
|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.
