After the Mock Draft, owners were requested to answer the following three questions:
1. Other than your club, pinpoint the owner with the best draft.
Bainbridge: The best draft was by FantasyBCS.
Boleman: It is tough to mention just one, but the Heisman Hopefuls had a real nice evening.
Brian: This one is a hard call, but I would have to go Heisman Hopefuls followed by the Gridiron Scholars.
Gasson: I like Bainbridge's team, providing Everett Golson wins the starting job at FSU, and the Gridiron Scholars' draft headlined by two top running backs.
Katz: Heisman Hopefuls had an awesome draft last night.
Laub: FantasyBCS and Heisman Hopefuls recruited very well.
Lawrence: Mike Bainbridge drafted the most balanced team.
Manghnani: The Gridiron Scholar had the best draft top to bottom.
Salerno: In my opinion, FantasyBCS selected the best club.
Tow: FantasyBCS had the best Mock Draft.
2. Identify the top sleeper(s) candidate this season.
Bainbridge: QB Matt Johnson (BGSU) who was injured all of last season, and for a deeper sleeper WR Allen Lazard (ISU).
Boleman: I could've drafted WR De'Mornay Pierson-El (NEB) a lot later I'm guessing, but love him as a playmaker.
Brian: If CFF owners are not valuing RB Corey Clement (WI) among top 10 at the position, they are missing the boat.
Gasson: Baker Mayfield didn't get drafted because we could only draft three QBs, but I want him this year with Oklahoma's new offensive coordinator.
Katz: My top three sleepers are QB Matt Davis, SMU, RB Brian Hill, (WYO) and WR Robbie Rhodes (BGSU).
Laub: Without question, WR Kenny Lawler, Jr. (CA) and WR Dom Williams (WSU) are my two top receiver sleepers.
Lawrence: RB Aaron Green (TCU) and his 7.15 yards per carry jump out: He should see plenty of touches.
Manghnani: In my opinion, the top sleeper is WR JuJu Smith (USC). His speed and athleticism combined with Cody Kessler slinging the rock will lead to eye-popping numbers this year.
Salerno: My number one sleeper is RB Leonard Fournette (LSU).
Tow: At TE, Braxton Deaver (Duke) will be a very good sleeper option, as many will have forgotten him.
3. Select one player who will become a weekly CFF starter drafted after the tenth round.
Bainbridge: On my team WR Tyler Winston (SJSU) will be a weekly contributor, and on another squad, it is WR Gabe Marks (WSU).
Boleman: Whoever emerges as the starting running back at Auburn.
Brian: From a fantasy perspective, QB Jacoby Brisset (NCSU) might put up very good numbers: Look at the Wolfpack schedule.
Gasson: I really like WR Hunter Sharp (USU) this year.
Katz: WR Hunter Sharpe (USU) will be a starter throughout the season.
Laub: QB Dane Evans (TLSA) will become a weekly contributor for CFF owners in 2015.
Lawrence: RB Christian McCaffrey (STAN) will likely take over as the feature back. If he gets all the goal line and short-yardage carries, he will be a must start.
Manghnani: WR Travis Rudolph (FSU) will fill the void left by Rashad Greene and Nick O'Leary.
Salerno: RB/WR Byron Marshall (ORE) becomes one of the more valuable bargain picks late in the draft for CFF owners.
Tow: Drafted in the 11th round, WR Hunter Sharp (USU) will be a CFF starter.
