Bolt Beat created its own fantasy football league. Which teams are the best on paper, and who wins the championship title?
Fantasy football is a great way to expand one’s knowledge of NFL rosters, have fun with friends and family, and get more out of the football experience. It’s also a way to prove you’re better than everyone you work with. Here at Bolt Beat, we’re all competing for the title.
Also, money. The winner takes the majority of the prize, and second place gets a small portion of what’s left. But no one wants second place, and they certainly don’t want third or worse. The Chargers have been to a Super Bowl, but no one is going around giving them credit for the attempt.
It’s about winning in fantasy football, and in order to do so, teams have to draft with talent, value, and projections in mind. Some reach for players they love, while others sit patiently because they’ve done 147 mock drafts prior to the real one. This is a 14-team league that drafted 15 rounds. How did each team do?
