Mock Draft Results

New, 5 comments

On Thursday evening, Fake Teams participated in a mock draft to be included in Fantasy Insider Online Fantasy Football Draft Kit. In a standard scoring format with 12 teams, a flex position and six bench players, FT drew the 9th pick. At that point, the elite RBs are gone and it is too early to select an elite WR. Fortunately, the draft comes back quickly and there is typically a good second-tier RB still available or an elite receiver. Other than QB Peyton Manning, you can take the pick of the QB litter if you're so inclined. (I'm not.)

I've listed both drafts side-by-side in order to facilitate a comparison between the two and to determine whether or not a pattern emerges in my drafting style. Clearly, I see value in Dolphins RB Ronnie Brown and Giants RB Brandon Jacobs in the early second and third rounds. There is also the likelihood of me passing on the upper tiers of QBs to grab one in the late single-digits rounds. FYI, I wasn't taking Michael Vick again. Others agreed somewhat as he slipped to the 13th round and 152nd overall pick.

My strategy going into this second draft was to have RB depth versus having an elite WR. The previous mock draft had a PPR format so comparisons between the two are not possible, but, outside of WR Marvin Harrison, I appear to be indifferent amongst the middle tiers of WR. I also decided to build bench depth by taking a second QB and TE. Normally, I'd just grab one from the pool for the bye week of my starting QB and TE, but wanted to see what a roster with back-ups at those positions would look like. This sacrificed a couple of spots I normally reserve for flyers.
