In honor of March Madness, the DBFA and the OIL are once again conducting an NCAA-style 64-player tournament to answer one question: Who is the most valuable player going into the 2014 season? Forget the debates. Forget the split-screen arguing. You won't see anyone yelling at each other here (unlike a certain four-letter sports network). We live in a democracy, and that's how we'll settle this argument.
MGL Commissioner and Visitors Section co-host Josh Hastings ranked his top 64 fantasy football players heading into 2014. OIL Commissioner Justin C. Cliburn turned that list into a 64-man bracket using BracketMaker.com. You may log into BracketMaker with your Facebook account or create an account on the site. Hastings's list is based on standard scoring, even though the OIL uses PPR. And players are listed as belonging to the team they play for right now. Things will change. But this is March, and we're starved for football.
You can access that bracket here, and make your picks. The winner will receive something from the DBFA store. The player who comes out on top will receive a letter of congratulations from the OIL along with memorabilia from the DBFA store.
The deadline to submit your bracket picks is Saturday, March 15, and the voting for individual matchups begins Sunday, March 16. Polls will be posted here for each round, and you, the reader, will vote on who should advance. So, without further adieu, here is your 2014 bracket:
