One critique we hear about the mock drafts on CBSSports.com is our "experts" leagues don't always show a strong representation of how the public picks players. So we decided to give you a mock draft featuring regular Fantasy owners chosen at random.

Maybe this is how you will actually draft.

We held this 10-team standard mock draft during our Fantasy Party at the CBS Scene at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., this past weekend. Dave Richard and I did the draft with eight non-CBSSports.com employees, including two radio hosts on 98.5 FM in Boston and six owners chosen from drawing names out of a hat.

You can examine the results below, but there aren't many differences from this draft to our other analyst leagues. Maybe it's because these owners play their leagues on CBSSports.com or read our content. Or they all just follow a similar draft strategy.

For example, there were no quarterbacks drafted in the first round, which is something we recommend. Peyton Manning went at No. 13 overall while Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers fell to Round 3. There were 11 running backs drafted in the first 20 picks.

Nothing stood out that made this draft unique, outside of one owner taking a different approach of two tight ends with the first four picks. But that owner was me.

I started my team with Jimmy Graham and DeMarco Murray at No. 10 overall and Doug Martin was an easy selection in Round 3. When I looked at my choices in Round 4, it was receivers like Michael Crabtree, Larry Fitzgerald or Keenan Allen or a third running back like Andre Ellington. I also could have selected a quarterback in Matthew Stafford.

Instead, I took the best player available in Julius Thomas. He's locked into my flex, which hurts the flexibility of my roster, but if he's as good as last year then I'll be fine. He could also be a great trade chip, but I didn't approach it that way. I wanted a difference-maker and Thomas fits the bill.

Now, the problem with this approach is I'm thin at receiver with Victor Cruz, Percy Harvin and Terrance Williams as my top three options, but I can play the waiver wire and find receivers throughout the year. It's unlikely I'd find someone as talented as Thomas, but we'll see how it works out.

As always, we ask you to share your thoughts on this draft. Take advantage of our Fantasy Football Twitter feed and post your comments there, or share your thoughts on our Fantasy Football Facebook page.

In this league, all touchdowns are worth six points, and we award one point for every 10 yards rushing and receiving and one point for every 25 yards passing. We feature a starting lineup of QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, K, DST and a FLEX (RB/WR/TE). There will also be five reserve spots for a 14-round draft.

Our draft order is as follows:

1. Dave Richard
2. Jay Leclerc
3. Jeff Kolva
4. Rich Keefe
5. Evan Silvia
6. Mike Lockhart

Titans waive WR, add TE to roster
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:20 pm ET) The Titans announced Tuesday they signed tight end Chase Coffman. To clear a spot on the roster, wide receiver T.J. Graham was waived.

Steelers, Dolphins, Chargers top streaming options in Week 4
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:18 pm ET) In his Week 4 waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg tabs the Steelers, Dolphins and Chargers DST units as the best streaming options for Week 4.

The Steelers have a date with the Buccaneers coming up in Week 4, and that has been a good thing for other defenses this season. Opposing DST units are averaging 18.3 Fantasy points per game against the Bucs, including two games above 15 points.

The Dolphins travel to London to face the Raiders, who have yet to top 14 points on offense this season. Opposing DST units have scored 12 Fantasy points in each game against Oakland.

The Chargers are coming off a strong performance, as they racked up 13 Fantasy points against the Bills, on the strength of three sacks and a safety. They get the Jaguars in Week 4, who have allowed opposing defenses to rack up at least 15 Fantasy points in each game, for an average of 19.0. 


Phillip Supernaw takes Dennis Pitta's spot on Ravens roster
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:17 pm ET) The Ravens announced Tuesday they placed tight end Dennis Pitta (hip) on injured reserve. To take his spot on the roster, tight end Phillip Supernaw was elevated from the practice squad.

Rex Ryan: 'Everybody is behind Geno Smith. He's our QB'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:13 pm ET) The Jets have lost two straight games and quarterback Geno Smith has had his struggles in both outings. However, coach Rex Ryan gave the second-year quarterback a vote of confidence Tuesday following Monday's loss vs. Chicago.

"Everybody is behind Geno. He's our quarterback. Our football team believes in him," Ryan said, per the New York Daily News.


It's a 'possibility' Chris Ivory will get more playing time
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:02 pm ET) After totaling 94 yards (44 rushing) during Monday's loss against the Bears and averaging 5.7 yards per carry through three games, Jets running back Chris Ivory might start to see more reps moving forward.

"Maybe Chris Ivory will get more time," coach Rex Ryan told reporters Tuesday. "He's running hard and there's not a whole lot of guys who want to tackle him. Will we play Chris Ivory more? That's a possibility."


Looking ahead at Week 4 WR waiver wire options
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:58 pm ET) Jamey Eisenberg considers Jordan Matthews of the Eagles, Brian Quick of the Rams, Allen Robinson of the Jaguars, James Jones of the Raiders and Hakeem Nicks of the Colts the first five receivers you should be targeting on waivers ahead of Week 4.

Additionally, Riley Cooper, Greg Jennings, Jarrett Boykin, Kenny Stills and Miles Austin are mentioned as possibly worth dropping if you need the roster spot right away.  


Muhammad Wilkerson dealing with knee contusion
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:56 pm ET) Jets coach Rex Ryan said defensive tackle Muhammad Wilkerson suffered a knee contusion Monday against the Bears. Ryan said it's not a serious injury, but Wilkerson might miss practice Wednesday.

"I think he's going to be fine," Ryan said, per the New York Daily News.


Jets coach hopeful Eric Decker will play Week 4
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:51 pm ET) Jets coach Rex Ryan said Tuesday he is hopeful wide receiver Eric Decker, who left Monday's game against the Bears after aggravating a hamstring injury, will play Week 4 against the Lions.

Taking a look at the top running backs on the waiver-wire
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:45 pm ET) With a ton of running backs on bye or dealing with injuries, the field is thin for Week 4. And, the potential replacements available on the waiver-wire aren't exactly standouts, with Jamey Eisenberg tabbing Ravens back Lorenzo Taliaferro and Donald Brown of the Chargers as the top pickups for the week.

See the rest of Jamey's Waiver Wire column here


Eli Manning a worthwhile fill-in for Week 4
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:35 pm ET) Giants quarterback Eli Manning is available in 51 percent of CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues, and Jamey Eisenberg targets him as the next-best-thing for Fantasy owners who miss out on Kirk Cousins on waivers this week.

Manning has racked up 40 Fantasy points over the last two weeks and gets to take on a Washington defense that just gave up 32 points to Nick Foles. Manning had just 23 Fantasy points against Washington a year ago, but torched them for 617 passing yards in two games in 2012.  

Manning is never going to be the most attractive Fantasy option, but he might make sense as a fill in for Week 4.
