Fantasy Football Mock Draft #5
I did my fifth 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 the team I drafted:
I had the 11th pick and started with Frank Gore with my 1st pick. I see a bounce back season for Gore and loved the value. With my 2nd pick I took Reggie Wayne. He is perhaps the safest of the Big Dog WRs because of his age and his QB. With my 3rd pick I opted for Torry Holt. I followed that pick up with a quick grab of Edgerrin James in the 4th. I think he’s got at least another high-end season in him. I figured he was a good value for the 4th round. In the 5th I took Tony Gonzalez, the last elite TE left. In the 6th I finished my skill position starters with Dwayne Bowe. In the 7th and 8th I grabbed some RB depth in Matt Forte and Felix Jones. In the 9th I opted for WR depth in Vincent Jackson. In the 10th I decided to grab a QB. I selected Donovan McNabb. In the 11th Round I added another RB in Tennessee’s Chris Johnson. In the 12th I added WR depth with Patrick Crayton. I took Matt Schaub in the 12th as McNabb insurance. In the 13th I took Washington Defense. I wrapped it up with Philadelphia Defense.
