The OP (offensive player) will be used almost always as a second QB, so they went for more than your standard backup and some teams opted to carry three QBs. 

The steal of the draft has to be Tom Brady, who went for $19. 

For scoring we're using QB TD/INT at 4/-2 and DEF also gets points for yardage allowed, other than that pretty vanilla.

Personally, my strategy was get at least 2 QBs I really liked and a solid backup. I found myself really deep at WR with Marshall, Jones, Nelson, & Amendola all starting for me and very weak at RB with only Shaddy & Ridley, so I might need to make a trade to get a solid back up to those two RBs. 

Any thoughts as to who has the best team or had some really good steals?  I like my Jordy Nelson at $9.

Aaron Rodgers was the first player and he went cheap at $34 while people sayt on their hands. Typical of an auction or at least an 'expert' auction.

I really like that with 10 teams we added an extra flex and offensive player. It gives owners lots of freedom to draft whoever they want (you can start 5 RBs or WRs if you want). Though I feel like it also devalues TEs some.

Yep, I immediately regretted not bidding on Rodgers. But getting away with Brady at 19 more than made up for it.

Do Analytics Take the Fun Out of Sports?
Apparently that was the topic of one of the presentations at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston last week. The presenter, Yale's Edward Tufte, opined:

Don't let people tell you analytics are reductionist and take the joy out of sports. They mostly just take the stupidity out of sports.

Is he right?

The Problem With Drafting Billy Hamilton
Billy Hamilton went for $28 in the NL LABR auction this past weekend. I discussed this with a fellow writer who participates in Tout Wars with me later this month and we discussed the problem with investing heavily into Hamilton.

My 12-Team NFBC RotoWire Online Championship Team
I drafted out of the 11-hole for the "Beat Chris Liss" league. I had done a fair amount of research on optimal roster construction from that slot, and I decided I'd go hitter in the first round, three pitchers in 2-4 and then hitting for the next 10 rounds or so before filling in with upside pitchers late. Of course, few battle plans survive the actual war. Here are the results:
