I’ve done dozens of mocks at this point. No results, really, to speak of. Things are still “up in the air,” and since individual league settings tend to neutralize findings anyway, I don’t give too much credence to what roster positions are filled in what order.
The work league roster format is:
Ideally, I might fill roster positions during the draft in this manner:
QB – Round 3
WR – Round 4
WR – Round 6
RB – Round 1
RB – Round 2
TE – Round 8
W/R/T – Round 5
W/R/T – Round 7
DEF/ST – Round 9
K – Round 10
IDP – Round 11
That does not take into consideration drafting BNs at some point before selecting a K or IDP.
I have 100 players on my draft board. Names that keep popping up are somewhat interesting. I’m not sure if I like what I’ve observed so far. These names are pretty much based on a standard, non custom league setting, with simple drafters following a pre-set order of relevance. Pretty much sticking to the Yahoo! format. So, my results have little relevance at this point. I’m bored though, so here you go:
QB – Drew Brees, Cam Newton
WR – Calvin Johnson, Marques Colston, Reggie Wayne, Antonio Brown
RB – Marshawn Lynch, Alfred Morris, Frank Gore, Darren Sproles
TE – Jason Witten, Greg Olsen
Eh. Not too excited about that crew. M. Lynch is the wrong class of RB that I am interested in. D. Sproles might be at the end of the line, productivity-wise. Is the sophomore slump for real? Is this all just superstition and hocus-pocus?
Blathering. My thoughts are an alphabet soup of NFL players. See you later.
It’s a good plan but I think I start taking WRs before my QB. Much too many worthy QBs going into this season to have to use such a high pick on one.
It’s true. I should concentrate on developing a better receiving core in Round 3. Point well taken. QBs are down the ladder of draft order anyway.
