Tomahawk Take Staff Fantasy Draft, Part 1

Over this weekend, 6 members of the Tomahawk Take writing staff took part in an auction draft.  We will track this league a few times throughout the year, but first we’ll review the draft.  First, a couple of caveats: this was a 6 person league, so the rosters will look better than an average 10- or 12-team draft.  Also, because of the 6 person draft, auction prices flattened out to lower prices for many of the guys just under the absolute superstars, so many of your drafts will not have players going for these prices.  Today, we’ll start with the rosters…
