RotoViz Dynasty League: Rookie Draft ’14 – Round 1
Get a free NFL subscription for 3 days.
After more than five months, hundreds of articles, and a grueling 16-round IDP startup, it was finally time for the members of the Fleaflicker RotoViz Dynasty League to gather for the 2014 Rookie Draft. Mock drafts are one thing. Real drafts are an entirely different animal. How do participants draft when real wins are on the line? Do owners really have the necessary conviction to pass on “overrated” players like Odell Beckham, Carlos Hyde, and Kelvin Benjamin? Will anyone pull the trigger on RotoViz Reach candidates like Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Allen Robinson, or Andre Williams? Quick note: This is a 14-team league run by the incomparable Matthew Freedman. Please check out his original article on our rules and rationales. Because of trades, a draft lottery based on the Fibonacci sequence, and the recruitment of a few new owners, the draft order doesn’t necessarily reflect who won and who lost in 2013. Several participants, including last year’s champion Ryan Lessard, do not have a pick in the first round.
