Prepare for your upcoming draft with this Live DraftDay Fantasy Football Mock Draft!
CrazyGabey and I commentated on the third edition of our Live DraftDay Fantasy Football Mock Draft series on Thursday evening, hosting a plethora of experts from all over the Twitterverse. With this being the third edition, we have already gained some knowledge from the experts, and once again had a great time with the 20-round best ball draft!
As expected, a running back came off the board 1st overall with Jamaal Charles going to BChad50. TheFFGirl quickly followed suit, taking Adrian Peterson 2nd. LeSean McCoy went 3rd to MichaelSGallagher, followed by Matt Forte at 4th to ProjectRoto, rounding out the elite running back dash at the beginning of the draft.
Demariyus Thomas was the first wide receiver drafted, going 5th overall to MichaelHofeld. It came as a surprise to some, but many pundits agree that he is in line for a huge year. Calvin Johnson was taken off the board with the very next pick, 6th overall to DFS_Almanac. A.J. Green went to FantasyNomad at 9th overall. TheTonyM was on the wheel and took full advantage, grabbing Dez Bryant and Brandon Marshall with back-to-back picks.
Tight end ADP is rarely a surprise in the early rounds, and this draft was no exception. Jimmy Graham went 8th overall to RyFo18, which is par for the course in most drafts. Rob Gronkowski was taken off the board next, with RotoHobo grabbing him early in the second round.
Quarterback was interesting in this one, with Peyton Manning being the first gunslinger taken, as he is in most drafts, but going in the second round to DFS_Almanac. Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees went next, going to RotoHobo and MichaelHofeld, respectively.
The Seahawks Defense was the first unit taken, dropping all the way until the final pick of the 13th round, and taken by TheTonyM. The Panthers and Chiefs were the next units off the board, dropping down into the 16th round.
Some players who dropped lower than anticipated were Khiry Robinson (14th round to RotoHobo), Kelvin Benjamin (10th round to TheFFGirl), Tavon Austin (19th round to DFS_Almanac), and Doug Baldwin (19th round to TheFFGirl).
I for one can’t wait until next week when we round out the 4th and final edition of the Live DraftDay Fantasy Football Mock Draft!
