Last week Scott Jenstad, Chris Liss and I participated in a different sort of Daily Draft on our SiriusXM show than our other daily drafts. Instead of picking an all-time team, or even best or worst draft picks, we decided to do something a little more NFBC-centric. And aside from maybe our Periodic Table Elements draft, and the Authors/Artistis/Composers draft, this is also the most subjective draft we've done. And yet, it's the most fantasy relevant "daily draft" that we've done. We each selected NFBC Main Event "fades" - players that if we have a Main Event draft later this year, we won't select at their current ADP - from 4/1 through the present, to account for the most recent news.
The great thing about this draft is that there's no obvious first pick. The market has already spoken, so everyone is already "rated." We personally disagree with where the players are going, but we're not saying that these players are bad players. We also made sure not to do anything cheesy like saying we're not taking Noah Syndergaard now that he's out for the season, either. We also agreed to make sure to keep it among the top-300 players in ADP - i.e. the top 20 rounds of the Main - which would me players that would be starters.
I'll list the results here, and then add a brief comment about my fades after the picks.
