I recently participated in a 12-team PPR draft with the guys at 4for4.com. Scott Pagel posted an awesome breakdown of the entire draft. I also had some thoughts:

1. What was your draft strategy?
Picking from the No. 5 spot, my goal was to get one of the top-tier players at both RB and WR, and I think I did that with Spiller and Thomas. I don’t like going RB-RB this year because I think you miss out on one of the top six WRs, and I like some RBs in the third round. I ended up with Lamar Miller there, who I have on a lot of teams. Other than that, I was looking to wait on QBs and TEs.

2. Did it work?
For the most part, yes, although I’m weak at TE with Daniels and Housler. I was looking to land Greg Olsenat TE, but I waited too long.

3. Biggest surprise?
For my team, the biggest surprise was taking Greg Jennings. I don’t think I’ll end up with Jennings on any other teams this year, but I was a bit weak at WR and he dropped too far.

4. In the draft, I regret:
I regret not taking Jermichael Finley in the eighth round.

5. Your favorite early round value pick?
When Andy Rioux took Calvin Johnson at No. 9 overall, that was great value. I also like Aaron Rodgers in the middle of the third round. I considered him earlier.

6. Your favorite late round value pick?
I like Alshon Jeffery in the 11th. Big wide receiver in a new pass-first offense coming off of an unimpressive rookie year. Great chance for value.
