KFFL's Fantasy Football Analysis Draft II brings you behind the scenes and provides you with the mindset behind why a certain player is
selected where. Whether you are a rookie to the game of fantasy football or a savvy vet, you can always pick up something new to add an extra wrinkle or two to your
strategy each year.
Our 12-team, 16-round fantasy football expert league draft will bring you pick-by-pick coverage along with a detailed analysis of why each selection was made.
As with every fantasy football draft, there are always a number of directions in which to go or philosophies to utilize. Our mission is to help educate you about why we
went in a certain direction with each fantasy football pick by sharing what we were thinking at the time of the selection.
This is not a "fantasy football mock draft." This is a real league that will be played out over the course of the 2010 season, so everyone
involved is drafting with the sole purpose of putting together the best possible team. Around here, bragging rights are everything - as is the taunting - so you can be sure each participant
will be putting his best foot forward to stand out.

Paul Hickey, NoOffseason.com
Hickey is the founder and president of NoOffseason.com. The NoOffseason.com product is different from other fantasy football sites in that it appeals to growing populations of fantasy football owners, specifically those that play in deep keeper or dynasty leagues (also known as long-term leagues) and/or IDP leagues (leagues that feature individual defensive players instead of or in addition to team defenses). We see this as a move away from simple "cookie-cutter" content. Our readers identify specifically with our site and form a deep attachment to us because NoOffseason.com provides top-notch fantasy football content 365 days a year - not just from August through December. Folks are starving for cutting edge content during the so-called "off months" due to the fact that in long term leagues, owners know who their players are, and are able to make trades year-round. NoOffseason.com
scratches the itch from January through July, while also stepping up our game and providing content to help fantasy heads win their leagues from August through December. In other words, THERE IS NO OFFSEASON.
