You will notice we had two Athlon Consensus draft spots. Let us set up the parameters for the Athlon Consensus picks. Each month the AC will draft in different spots and represent different draft styles that are commonplace in the world of fantasy football.

For this mock draft, the first AC (AC-1) went the traditional RB, RB early route. Meanwhile, the second AC (AC-2) selected last in the first round was slated as the drafter who always goes QB-WR in the first two rounds no matter what.

We set up these two Athlon Consensus drafters for multiple reasons, among those being that there is always a drafter that never deviates from his plan and there is always a drafter that selects players straight down whatever the rankings for the next position tells them. These players affect the outcome of both their drafts and yours as well. So we will consistently represent them in each of our monthly mock drafts at different draft positions on the board each time.

This is a 12-team, head-to-head league. All touchdowns are 6 points. 1 point for 25 yards passing, 1 point for 10 yards rushing/receiving. Receptions are .5 points. Interceptions/fumbles are minus-2 points. PATs are 1 point, field goals are 3 points (30 yards), 4 points (40 yards) and 5 points (50-plus yards). Kickoff/punt returns count 6 points both for individuals and team defenses. Team defenses are scored with 1 point for a sack, 2 points for an interception, fumble recovery, safety or blocked kick. Points allowed are 12 for a shutout, 10 for 1-6, 8 for 7-13, 6 for 14-20, 2 for 21-27 and 0 for 28-plus. Lineup is 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 flex (RB/WR), 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DST and 5 bench spots.

The Athlon editors had extended debates on everything from who the No. 1 overall pick should be to whether it should be Cam Newton or Ryan Mallett that was selected as the first rookie quarterback in the final round.
