It's really easy for the writers at numberFire to find statistics and turn them into articles advocating for and against nearly any player in the NFL. Fantasy football advice is handed out like candy on Halloween around here, but when our feet are to the fire, how do we actually approach a fantasy football draft?

This week we found out by putting our money where are mouths are and holding a fantasy football draft for a 14-team PPR league, with every member currently serving on the writing staff here at numberFire.

The randomly assigned draft order was as follows:

1 Leo Howell
2 Sam Hauss
3 Ari Ross
4 JJ Zachariason
5 Brandon Gdula
6 Michael Comerford
7 Galin Dragiev
8 Sean Wirth
9 Justin Thompson
10 Kenneth Cook
11 Matt Grasso
12 Daniel Lindsey
13 Greg Bucki
14 AJ Weinberg

Let's take a look at how the draft unfolded, beginning with my first overall selection in the draft.
