Editor's note: We recently held our first 14-team post-NFL Draft mock Fantasy draft on CBSSports.com. Our Jamey Eisenberg not only participated in the draft, but he's broken down what he liked and didn't like with each team. You can check out the complete results here .
Team 1 (Ian Melmood)
This owner followed the right strategy when picking No. 1 overall by taking Adrian Peterson and then grabbing the two best wide receivers in Roddy White and Marques Colston when he drafted again at the end of Round 2. I'm not a fan of Jamal Lewis, but he got him in the right spot at the end of Round 6 as his third running back. Along with Derrick Ward and Rashard Mendenhall, he has a great collection of running backs for a 14-team league. I like Steve Breaston, but he passed on better options in Santana Moss, Jerricho Cotchery and Anthony Gonzalez to take Arizona's No. 3 wideout. This move only looks good if Anquan Boldin leaves the Cardinals, which isn't expected to happen. It's good to have targets in a strong passing game, but Moss and Cotchery are No. 1 receivers on their respective teams. And Gonzalez is about to get a huge boost replacing Marvin Harrison for the Colts.
Team 2 (Eric Kay)
Taking Matt Forte at No. 2 overall gave this draft a different start and probably has most of you wondering if that was a reach. I like Maurice Jones-Drew better than Forte, and an argument can be made for Michael Turner being ahead of Forte as well, but I see the upside. Forte is going to be a star after last year's rookie season, and he's worth drafting at No. 2 if that's the player you want to target in your draft slot. This was a good pick. This owner also did well with two late picks on wide receivers in Mark Bradley and Chris Henry, who could both be great No. 3 Fantasy options. And, following the news of Brian Westbrook's ankle surgery, he got good value with Lorenzo Booker in Round 14. With LeRon McClain, he's a good player to target late, but even Round 9 is a little early, especially with Ahmad Bradshaw, Jamaal Charles and Shonn Greene still available.
Team 3 (Peter Madden)
This owner made two questionable picks with Devin Hester and Sammy Morris because it was too early. He took Hester over Steve Breaston, Santana Moss, Anthony Gonzalez and Jerricho Cotchery, among others, and that's too high in Round 6. The same goes for Morris ahead of Chester Taylor, Tim Hightower, Jerious Norwood and Fred Jackson. But he rebounded with excellent picks later in Tashard Choice (Round 10), Michael Bush (Round 11), LaMont Jordan (Round 12), Edgerrin James (Round 14) and Johnnie Lee Higgins. These players have good value in a 14-team league, especially if James signs somewhere before training camp (Philadelphia makes sense following Westbrook's injury), and Higgins is a sleeper with the Raiders. His receiving corps is a little thin, but he can make do. He also needs to find a backup quarterback in Week 6 when Peyton Manning is on a bye since he didn't address that position in the draft.
Team 4 (Jason Horowitz)
If there's a draft strategy you want to avoid, this is it, and it has nothing to do with taking Michael Vick in the final round. This owner started off strong with Maurice Jones-Drew landing in his lap at No. 4 overall and then taking Kevin Smith, T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Jason Witten with three of his next four picks. But his starting lineup features too many question marks with Ben Roethlisberger and Percy Harvin, and he drafted Braylon Edwards (Round 4) and Felix Jones (Round 6) too early. He also reached on several backups in Josh Morgan, Hakeem Nicks and Brandon Pettigrew. I like that he drafted Jerome Harrison since he's expected to share carries with Jamal Lewis, but he took him too high in Round 9. Brady Quinn is a good backup quarterback, but he wasted a pick on Vick, even in a 14-team league.
Team 5 (Michael Hurcomb)
I like what this owner did with late picks in Greg Jones, Glen Coffee and Martellus Bennett since they could be valuable this season, especially Jones as the backup in Jacksonville behind Maurice Jones-Drew. And the Coffee pick is smart since he drafted Frank Gore in the first round. He also has a tremendous receiving corps with Greg Jennings, Steve Smith, Chad Ochocinco and Santana Moss, and he drafted all those guys in Rounds 2-7, so he locked up that spot on his roster early. He took Ricky Williams too high, especially with Rashard Mendenhall, Ahmad Bradshaw and Jamaal Charles still on the board. All those running backs are better backup options on their respective teams than Williams. And he also drafted three tight ends with Kevin Boss and Jeremy Shockey, which is too much, even for a league this deep.
Team 6 (J. Darin Darst)

Practice with our mock drafts!
Wide receiver is where this team is going to struggle with Santonio Holmes, DeSean Jackson and Muhsin Muhammad as his starters. He has two No. 2 Fantasy options and a No. 4 wide receiver in his lineup, and his reserves are Mark Clayton and Antwaan Randle El. Yuck. His running backs are solid with DeAngelo Williams, Marshawn Lynch, Willis McGahee, Fred Jackson and Fred Taylor. And he has the best quarterback coming into the year with Drew Brees. What this owner should have done was taken Steve Breaston, Santana Moss, Anthony Gonzalez or Jerricho Cotchery instead of McGahee in Round 6. He also could have had Torry Holt or Chris Chambers instead of Taylor in Round 9. And for some reason he drafted two backup quarterbacks in Jake Delhomme and Mark Sanchez when he has Brees. All you need is one backup, if any, with Brees.
Team 7 (Jamey Eisenberg)
I have Chansi Stuckey as the worst pick of the draft because I left Johnnie Lee Higgins on the board, and I don't like missing on potential sleepers for "what-if picks," which is what Stuckey is since he's not even guaranteed to start. I had a lot of second-guessing in this draft with Dwayne Bowe or Wes Welker in Round 3 (I took Bowe), LenDale White or Jonathan Stewart in Round 4 (I took White) and Darren Sproles or Donald Brown in Round 5 (I took Sproles). Those decisions could come back to haunt me. My team will depend on Carson Palmer's healthy return from last year's elbow injury, but he should be fine. And I like taking risks on players like Plaxico Burress, who could sign somewhere and make an impact depending on his legal woes, and Earl Bennett, who could emerge as a sleeper now that he has quarterback Jay Cutler.
Team 8 (Mike Freeman)
Drafting three running backs in the first three rounds is a risk in a 14-team league, but this owner made some good choices with Brian Westbrook, Pierre Thomas and Ryan Grant. He even backed up Westbrook with LeSean McCoy, which proved prophetic since this draft started before the news of Westbrook's ankle surgery. He ended up with a good but unspectacular collection of wide receivers with Antonio Bryant, Laveranues Coles and Jerricho Cotchery, although depth is an issue with Nate Burleson and Bobby Engram as the lone reserves. And he has a great quarterback tandem with Matt Schaub and Matt Hasselbeck. Tight end is an issue with Bo Scaife as the starter, but that's what happens when you wait until Round 14 to address that spot. Overall, this is a good draft if the receiving spot pans out, but he has trade bait with his running backs.
Team 9 (Eric Mack)
This is another team that punted on wide receiver until Round 7, and in a three-receiver, 14-team league, that's tough. He has a stud quarterback in Tom Brady and a great collection of running backs in Ronnie Brown, Darren McFadden, Reggie Bush, Ray Rice and Laurence Maroney, although he took Rice too early in Round 6. Even if Rice ends up as the starting running back in Baltimore ahead of Willis McGahee, he could have taken a wide receiver in this spot like Laveranues Coles, Steve Breaston, Santana Moss, Anthony Gonzalez or Jerricho Cotchery, which would have made his team more complete. As it stands, his starting wide receivers are Donald Driver, Michael Crabtree and Torry Holt, who he got with great value when he was drafted. He spent the rest of the draft chasing receivers with Deion Branch, Joey Galloway, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Jordy Nelson and Austin Collie with the hopes any of them can pan out. But he does have trade bait with his running backs to improve this spot.
Team 10 (Dave Richard)
This owner took a curious approach with his starting lineup when he drafted Joseph Addai in Round 4 and then backed him up right away with Donald Brown in Round 5. It's always good to have the starter and backup for a running back tandem, but now he has to start one as a flex option. This was done before the news of Addai having offseason knee surgery, so Brown could end up starting with Jerious Norwood at the flex spot. Norwood is a great running back to target since Michael Turner is coming off 376 carries last season and could suffer a breakdown. He also reached on Derrick Mason too early since Mason is coming off shoulder surgery and would have been available later. Otherwise, this team is loaded with talent in Chris Johnson, Randy Moss and Wes Welker. Jay Cutler also could be a tremendous pick in Round 6 if he doesn't suffer a setback in Chicago.
Team 11 (Ross Devonport)
This owner got so much good value at nearly every spot it's hard to find a flaw. In fact, the only reason Calvin Johnson is the worst pick is because he left Randy Moss on the board, who I like better, so we're nit-picking here. He got Dallas Clark in Round 6 as the fourth-best tight end, backed up his starting running backs in Steven Jackson and Larry Johnson with late-round picks in Antonio Pittman and Jamaal Charles and added depth with Leon Washington in the right spot. His receiving corps isn't spectacular, but he has a good starting trio of Johnson, Lee Evans and Donnie Avery and also Isaac Bruce on the bench. And I like the pick of Maurice Morris in Round 11 since Kevin Smith is the only proven running back the Lions have on the team. If Smith goes down, Morris will again benefit like he did in Seattle. This team should be a contender.
Team 12 (Scott White)
I like what this owner did to start his team with Clinton Portis in Round 1 followed by Andre Johnson and Terrell Owens. He added to his wide receiver depth with Chris Chambers and Miles Austin, so he's solid at that spot. His running backs are questionable with Willie Parker and Julius Jones behind Portis, and he took Parker too early. He left Reggie Bush, LenDale White and Jonathan Stewart, among others, still on the board. He did exactly what you should do when drafting a quarterback like Matt Ryan by backing him up with Kyle Orton. Other starters who deserve a strong backup are Jay Cutler, Matt Cassel and Carson Palmer, and other backups to target are Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Hasselbeck. If Correll Buckhalter gets enough carries in Denver behind rookie Knowshon Moreno and LaMont Jordan, then this running back corps will look better.
Team 13 (Jeff Lippman)
This owner did a good job of backing up one of his starting running backs in Thomas Jones with rookie Shonn Greene. But while he got Greene with great value, he took Jones too early with better options in Reggie Bush, LenDale White and Jonathan Stewart still available. I like the receiving corps with Larry Fitzgerald, Bernard Berrian and Ted Ginn Jr., and he did the right thing when you take a wide receiver in Round 1. He took a stud running back in Marion Barber and then his quarterback in Philip Rivers. He then filled in his starters at running back, wide receiver and flex spots with Jones, Berrian, Cedric Benson and Ginn before taking Kellen Winslow in Round 8. Benson is also a great pick as his third running back or flex spot, and this team should be competitive.
Team 14 (Sergio Gonzalez)
It's hard to argue with his running back corps of LaDainian Tomlinson, Brandon Jacobs, Chester Taylor and Tim Hightower. And his receiving corps is good but not great in Vincent Jackson, Hines Ward and Lance Moore. But in hindsight, he could have drafted a wide receiver in Round 2 instead of Jacobs and had a more balanced team, especially with Andre Johnson and Randy Moss available. He could have taken Johnson instead of Jacobs and then taken a running back like Cedric Benson, Ray Rice or Willis McGahee in Round 6 instead of Moore. That would have given him a stud at every key spot on his roster. Overall, this team is solid and should be in contention for the playoffs. And if Hightower continues to score touchdowns like he did last season, he could trade him and a receiver for an upgrade over Jackson, Moore or Ward.
