2008 Fantasy Football Mock Draft Results

I participated in my 1st mock draft of the fantasy football season at Mock Draft Central this morning. The decision to do so was spur of the moment, and I barely had an idea of whch players I wanted later in the draft i.e. sleepers and who could be decent (800 yards) WRs to fill-out a couple of bench spots.

I selected third and hoped for Minnesota Vikings' RB Adrian Peterson to drop to me. Despite several touts claiming Philadelphia Eagles' Brian Westbrook as the second-best fantasy RB, Peterson was not available. Westbrook was, so I took him. Coming back, I decided to grab a top WR and see what was there in the third round.

Could this be the year Jacksonville RB Fred Taylor finally succumbs to age? My guess is it will be. I grabbed Maruice Jones-Drew on that hunch. What's the worst case scenario if it is wrong? 10 TDs?

The rest of my draft continued with a risk-taking/playing-hunches kind of draft. I'm not convinced it works, but I know it makes my initial team more interesting because it is filled with players I think will do well while not being a slave to the analytical side of a game, which frankly, doesn't lend itself well to the statisical measurements that baseball and basketball do.

Here is the team I drafted in my 1st go-round in prepping for the 2008 fantasy football season.
