    The ESPN Fantasy staff named a wide receiver as fantasys top overall player for 2016, but when it comes to the rest of the early rounds, theres little-to-no shift in focus from the running back position among our experts, who continue to load up on the position early in mock drafts.Our most recent mock draft was based on a 12-team standard format, and 12 of the first 24 picks were running backs. One tight end joined 11 wideouts to round out the first two rounds.Youre likely see a quarterback or two thrown in when drafting in a mock draft or live draft lobby on ESPN, but its unlikely that the focus on running backs will fade, no matter who is drafting. Running backs make up 13 of the top 25 picks in our live draft results, along with two quarterbacks, nine wide receivers and a tight end.Only two of our mock drafters (Tristan H. Cockcroft and I) opted for two running backs in the first two rounds, and Tristan took things further by selecting a third back in the fourth round. Although it might not be popular or standard to go RB-RB in the first two rounds at this point, fantasy is certainly still an RB-centric game.So who were the first running backs to go? How did our drafters build their teams? And, perhaps most importantly, who rose and fell the most in this deeper format?Heres the full recap of our draft, conducted by (in drafting order): Jim McCormick, Mike Clay, Field Yates, Kyle Soppe, Keith Lipscomb, Stephania Bell, Leo Howell, Eric Karabell, Tristan H. Cockcroft, Tom Carpenter, Matt Bowen and KC Joyner.

Celtic eased into the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup with a routine 2-0 win Asked if he was happy with the win, the Norwegian said: Yes, of course I was. I think it would have been very hard had we lost today, I admit that. So it was a crucial victory. You never know in football but that would have been thee biggest surprise in a lot of years but it didnt happen and I am very happy for that.ddddddddddddBut I was quite comfortable during the 90 minutes and I will give a lot of credit to East Kilbride, they fought really hard and tried to play football as well, so that was a positive.I thought we controlled the game pretty well and we could have created more.I didnt think we were accurate enough and I think the surface was a little bit difficult. We could have played better but we went through and that is the most important thing. I didnt think we were accurate enough and I think the surface was a little bit difficult. Ronny Deila We wanted to score more goals and we had our chances but nobody will remember that if we win the cup.His opposite number at East Kilbride, Billy Ogilvie, added: It was probably the proudest moment I have ever had in football.It is pretty difficult to put into words. I am so proud of them but I think I am even beyond that.
