Having the first overall pick proved fortuitous this season, as 10 teams won titles from the #1 slot. Interestingly, for the 2nd straight year, no team drafting 11th won a league title.

I love this kind of data. The distribution is very different this year.

Agreed, this is great data! You didn't want 11th this year, I guess...

Not only did you not want to draft 11th, but you didn't want to draft outside the 1st 4 picks, generally. 1-4 produced 26 winners while 5-12 only produced 22 total. And 10-12 only produced 3 winners (I happened to be one of them...I went 10th).

The first 2 slots were the best place to draft from in 2013.

Crazy that the 11th place finisher still drew the short stick...
