Fantasy Players Network Expert Draft League
It's the ultimate "Experts League" competition.
Twenty four members of the Fantasy Players Network recently held an online "slow" draft in the inaugural FANTASY PLAYERS NETWORK DRAFT CHALLENGE. The league is a "DraftMasters" or "Best Ball" type of league, where you draft a larger than usual roster of players (25 total), and your weekly lineup is automatically generated with your best performing players for the week.
The competition divides the 24 network sites into two twelve team divisions. Each 12 team division conducts their own draft. There are two divisions:
The season last for 16 weeks, and the team with the highest number of points across BOTH divisions is declared the winner. The winner will receive a Silver Cup trophy compliments of FantasyTrophies.com. (Thank you fellas).
Scoring is WCOFF based (PPR), and the rosters on a weekly basis consist of 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 D, and 1 Flex (RB/WR/TE).
Conducting this draft was a bit of a logistical challenge. Getting 24 high profile fantasy sites committed to enduring a week and a half slow draft is asking a lot. Luckily, as the draft is conducted in mid-July, it occurs during a lull in the fantasy football pre-season, just before teams hit training camp.
Let's take a look at the two drafts.
Here are the results from the Fantasy Experts:

Once the season gets underway, we'll dedicate a spot on our home page to track the progress and see who comes away as top dog. In the meantime, if you want to go to the league home page, you can find it here.
