2012 NFL Big-League Fantasy Football Draft Snapshot

Earlier I posted about the 12-team league with “normal” scoring and setup.

This draft is for a deeper, 16-team league with several flex positions to represent the other end of the Fantasy Football league spectrum:

Quarterback:1
Running Back:2
Wide Receiver:2
Tight End:1
Wide Receiver / Running Back:1
Kicker:1
Defensive Team:1
Quarterback / Running Back / Wide Receiver / Tight End:1
Running Back / Wide Receiver / Tight End:1
Bench:7
Reserve:1

Notice those “flex” positions: The astute fantasy footballer will get two starting QBs with a 3rd/sleeper in reserve as QBs generate higher FP than other positions. I added a few bonus points for 400+ yards passing and 200+ yards rushing/receiving in a game, and a half point or point for long TD passes and runs just for fun.

An arrow denotes my pick each round…team Carolina Kalashnikovs!
