Fantasy Football Mock Draft #3
I did my third The Sporting News Live Mock Fantasy Football Draft today. They offer 10 & 12 Team Drafts that go 15 rounds, which I use to gauge where people are picked. As the season approaches, these Mock Drafts become better because everyone is more up-to-speed on the players and you get a full draft. When there isn’t a full draft, there is an Autopick in place. They go by Sporting News rankings. It’s not ideal, but it’s acceptable. Another cool feature is the chat board which allows you to discuss players with other fantasy football fanatics.
Here’s how my team shaked out:
This time I joined a ten-man league and had the fifth pick. I knew I was going to get one of the Big Dog Running Backs. It was just a matter of which one. I had the choice between S-Jax and Joseph Addai. I chose Addai because he’s the safer of the two in my opinion. If Bulger gets hurt again, S-Jax could struggle. With my second pick I was undecided between an RB (Willis McGahee) or a WR (Andre Johnson). I decided to go with McGahee with my second pick and was fortunate enough to have AJ still there with pick #3. With my fourth and fifth picks I rounded out my WR corps by adding Torry Holt and Brandon Marshall. In the sixth round I opted for RB depth. I chose LenDale White over Michael Turner and Darren McFadden. In Round 7 Run DMC was still there so I snatched him up. I figured I should grab a QB in Round 8. I had a choice between Matt Hasselbeck, Marc Bulger, and McNabb. I went with Hasselbeck. I’ve had him my first two mocks so it’s natural I grabbed Jonathan Stewart once again in the 9th round. In the 10th, 11th & 12 rounds I went for WR depth by adding Jerricho Cotchery, Reggie Brown and Javon Walker. In the 13th I decided to finally take a TE. I went with Tony Scheffler. In Round 14 I decided to get a backup QB so I added Matt Schaub. I wrapped up by grabbing Pittsburgh Defense.
