The 2017 fantasy football season has kicked off and you know what that means. It's time once again for your friends, family members, and co-workers to turn into a mindless horde of zombies as they check their draft apps hoping to witness a win. It seems like everyone plays fantasy football. If you aren't one to play fantasy football, fear not true believer because MoviePilot has put together the ultimate fantasy football draft for comic book fans like you. Instead of drafting NFL players, you will be drafting comic book characters.
Ever wonder what it would be like to have Superman or maybe even Captain America leading your team to victory as your quarterback? Well, now you can experience that feeling. The MoviePilot Superhero Fantasy Football draft allows you to pick the very best comic book characters to fill your roster; however, there is a catch - you’ll be able to see which characters are receiving the most votes for each position after you make your selection.
Since football is a competitive sport, and fans typically like to argue over who’s the better player, it’s likely that there will be some disagreements regarding the players selected for you to pick from, and who is leading in each category. I encourage you to vocalize your feelings in the comments section below.
Well, what are you waiting for? Get drafting and remember - laces out!
The quarterback (QB) is responsible for making some of the toughest decisions in the game. The QB needs to read the defense correctly and know when to throw a Hail Mary pass, or hand it off to the running back. The QB is typically the leader of the team and the person everyone looks to for encouragement.
Pick one of the following to be your team's quarterback (QB).
Running Back (RB)
The running back (RB) is a big, hulking bruiser, or a sleek and speedy athlete that is able to run the ball down the throat of the defense and into the end-zone. Most fantasy football drafts allow you to play two RBs. Below are two separate voting selections for RB. Choose one character from each voting selection.
Pick one of the following to be your running back #1 (RB1)
Pick one of the following to be your running back #2 (RB2)
Wide Receiver (WR)
The wide receiver (WR) is known for making spectacular, aerobatic catches. The WR's specialty is securing that touchdown pass, or that much needed first down reception. Sometimes they are the tallest players on the team. Traditionally, fantasy football drafts allow you to play two WRs. Below are two separate voting selections for WR. Choose one character from each voting selection.
Choose one of the following as your wide receiver #1 (WR1)
Choose one of the following as your wide receiver #2 (WR2)
Tight End (TE)
The tight end is a large and in charge. The TE needs to know when to block and when to go out for a pass. They need to have the strength and size to survive the line.
Choose one of the following as your tight end (TE)

Choose one of the following as your kicker (K)
