Expert Mock Draft Today

I’m doing an expert mock draft today for one of the Fanball magazines, available on newsstands this summer. This is a 12-teamer and it’s NOT a PPR league. It’s also a league that gives 6 points per TD pass. It’s a pretty basic setup overall:

Draft: 12 teams, Snake draft, 90 seconds per pick

16 rounds (1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 FLEX, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF, 7 bench)

Scoring: Rush/Rec TD= 6 pts., Pass TD=4 pts., 10 yds rushing/rec.= 1 pt., 25 yds. passing= 1 pt., FG= 3 pts., PAT= 1 pt.

Defense: TD= 6 pts., Sack, INT or FF= 1 pt.

I’ll be posting my picks as I make them, starting at 3pm ET.

1st pick, 7th overall – All the good young RBs were gone, so it was between Jackson and LT, I took LaDainian Tomlinson.

2nd pick – Between Barber and Wayne, and I felt the need to secure a stud WR, so I took Reggie Wayne.

4:00: Sorry, something came up during the draft, so I’ll post all my picks. It’s only a mock, so I didn’t pay a lot of attention to it given what came up here in the office.

5:09: Ok, I’m back and the draft is over. [...]
