Welcome to our fourth annual live pod during the LABR Mixed draft. This isn’t structured like our normal shows so there aren’t time tags for specific things and there are some lulls of silence (or typing) as we do research and/or update our lists. We also listened in on the SiriusXM show of the draft at times, too, and include our call with them to discuss the first portion of our draft.

This is our unfiltered draft process as we watch our queues get drained and get some fun surprises that fall to us picking 15th. Check out the full draft below and let us know what you think of the team.

It’s a standard 5×5 Roto league with 20-game qualifications, 23 man roster, 6 reserve

As usual, don’t hesitate to tweet us or comment with fantasy questions.

Nice draft Paul! Fun to hear you talk through the process. Can’t believe you didn’t get DeJong – Justin is gonna be so disappointed.
