There is a lot of preparation that goes into fantasy football drafts. Some use personal knowledge and players from favorite teams, some buy magazines, and other utilize the list created by the website their league is associated with. Regardless, a lot of faith is placed on these resources, which sometimes can be outdated and not include important injury updates.
As the draft season began, I had an idea about draft order. No one actually drafts in the order of said magazines or websites. People draft with experts and novices, based on past knowledge or team favoritism, go with auto-pick, or see one WR draft from a team and immediately draft the WR2 from the same team (Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker). I drafted in two leagues with people I knew, drafted three more in free leagues, and one in a Yahoo! Pro league with strangers. These drafts are based on normal fantasy point systems and 10 team leagues.
The following are the results of comparing the picks from all six leagues. The remaining results are the overall top 100 actual picks the average fantasy user makes, not what you typically read in fantasy draft preparations.
