The 2016 fantasy football season is in the books and so let's put a wrap on things first by looking at the best of the best with our All-Pro Team.  These are the players who made their hay and more for their owners and were on more than a few winning teams this season.

QB (4)-Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, Derek Carr:  These are the obvious four and there should be no discussion negative to any of them.  Ryan and Carr are newcomers to this space but both were in firm MVP consideration all season.  Yes it literally was a bad break for Carr in Week 16 but his 28 TD's and 3,933 yards were impressive to say the least.  Yes Tom Brady deserved it on a per game basis but we can only pick four and guys who did it all season including September get the lean.
Honorable Mention:  Andrew Luck, Ben Roethlisberger, Tom Brady, Marcus Mariota

RB (4)-Ezekiel Elliott, DeMarco Murray, David Johnson, Le'Veon Bell:  Again these were all easy calls.  Elliott was the best rookie back since Adrian Peterson as he collected a crazy 1,631 yards and 15 scores in 15 games.  Murray posted the biggest "comeback" season of the year in excelling both in the running (1,266) and receiving game (52 catches).  Meanwhile Bell on a per game basis was in the fantasy football MVP running.  Finally Johnson proved to be the most worth number 1 pick in fantasy football when taking into account the guys who on average went that high this past summer.
Honorable Mention:  LeSean McCoy, Jordan Howard, LeGarrette Blount. Jay Ajayi

WR (6):  Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr., Jordy Nelson, Doug Baldwin, Mike Evans, Larry Fitzgerald:  Slow starts by Nelson and Baldwin exploded from midseason onward.  Meanwhile Fitzgerald is actually getting better as he moves more into his 30's.
Honorable Mention:  Julio Jones, Julian Edelman, Demaryuis Thomas, T.Y. Hilton, Michael Crabtree, Michael Thomas

TE (3):  Greg Olsen, Travis Kelce, Cameron Brate:  Brate is the newcomer on the block but he proved to be a good receiver who has a nice knack for catching touchdowns.  Olsen and Kelce remain the best of the best.
Honorable Mention:  Kyle Rudolph, Jordan Reed, Zach Ertz
