6/23 Expert Draft

I had another draft last night for another print magazine. This was only a mock, so I can’t say I took it as seriously as others. When I say that, I basically mean I didn’t both using a cheat sheet and marking players off; I just used the site’s pre-ranked players. That can be very dangerous, however, since good players are sometimes missed because they’re buried on a site’s pre-ranked players.

I had the 10th pick, so I thought it would be interesting to see how my team looked if I passed on a RB in the first round and went with WR Randy Moss. I also wanted to try out holding off even more on QB and TE.

Note on scoring: This was not PPR league, and the scoring was yardage-heavy, so you’ll notice some of my picks favored yardage guys. It was an odd setup in that you could start only 2 RBs (and 3 WRs), and they didn’t require or want you to draft a DT.

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups. If you’re loo […]
