I was going with the goal of taking the best player available. Seriously. Sure, there was a little bit of position concern there, but for the most part, I drafted on value.

Did your draft strategy work?

NO question. Money Team is far and away the best roster.

What was your favorite pick(s)?

Getting Shady McCoy in the second round. After his production the past few years and what his potential is this year in Chip Kelly's offense? That's just ridiculous.

What pick(s) do you most regret?

I wasn't sure about Tom Brady when I made the selection, considering the loss of Wes Welker. But it's Tom Brady, he'll make it work.

Who drafted the best fantasy team?

Again, me. Not even close.
