Decided to go "best available" among running backss and wide receivers for the first few rounds, THEN worry about a quarterback.

Did your draft strategy work?

With a running back duo of C.J. Spiller and DeMarco Murray and a No. 1 wideout in A.J. Green, I'd cautiously say yes (but c'mon, DeMarco, you gotta stay healthy!)

What was your favorite pick(s)?

Colin Kaepernick. I gambled (correctly) that he'd slip a bit after starting 2012 a little sluggishly. I still say 15 years from now, he'll be considered the best of the new-wave spread-option guys.

What pick(s) do you most regret?

Too soon to regret ANY pick. Get back to me in November on that. Meantime, I'm sorry I didn't get Jake Locker, who I think could have a really big season.

Who drafted the best fantasy team?

Michael Fabiano. Whether or not he actually did is besides the point -- who am I to question a Hall of Famer? You don't hear Kevin Kolb ripping on Tom Brady very often, do ya?
