2013 FLEX Draft Results (Fantasy League of Experts)

Arian Foster, 2013 FLEX Draft

Arian Foster went to Gonos with the seventh overall pick.

On Thursday night, I joined several of my colleagues for a draft of the inaugural 2013 FLEX Draft, which was broadcast live on the SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Channel. “FLEX” stands for “Fantasy League of Experts,” and it’s the Fantasy Football brainchild of Jake Ciely of Football.com, and myself.

Once Jamey Eisenberg of CBSSports.com mentioned that the writers from the Football.com Top 100 Fantasy Players should all do a league, Ciely went into action and built out a great cast of characters for two different leagues. One is a best-ball league, and then there’s our league, which is a PPR format, with three starting wide receivers.

Below are the FLEX Draft results and we think you’ll enjoy checking them out – and following the league throughout the season. We’ll all end up talking about it on SiriusXMs at different points – just like we did Thursday night.

My 2013 FLEX Draft Strategy

My plan was to go with Ray Rice with my pick if he was there in the first round, but then I decided to jump on Arian Foster instead. In this league, you don’t want to make a lot of mistakes, and I felt if I took a chance on Foster, and backed him up with Ben Tate, I had a chance to have the second-best player in Fantasy Football this season. It might take a few weeks for that to kick in, however.

I’m not crazy about my roster, but I also think it could have been much worse. Had I taken Rice first, I would have gone with Ahmad Bradshaw instead. That would have given me much more depth at the position, but my top-end quality would have been a notch below.

In hindsight, I should have taken Rice. But that’s why we do these drafts — to draft and learn. Maybe you can do better than I did after drafting Foster in the first round! Good luck this season! I hope this 2013 FLEX Draft helps you out!
