It's easy to speculate about what players we'd rank where, but in a season like this one, where so much has changed since draft day, one of my colleagues, Scott Pianowski, figured we'd put ourselves to the test and have midseason expert draft (for real money). Of course, none of us have time to manage another league, so we made it a "bestball" league.
The "bestball" draft took place on Tuesday with pretty standard rules except that we used team quarterbacks and no defenses. Also, the "best ball" aspect means that we make no moves the rest of the way, and just take the scores of our best quarterback, two running backs, three WRs and flex each week. In other words, there's no lineup setting  everyone gets his perfect lineup. But the point is, you draft  at least in the first few rounds  for this league, exactly as you'd do for a regular draft.
Here's how it went:
