Toronto sports fans, it’s time for part 2 of our mock draft series. In this installment, we’ll look at a couple of mock fantasy drafts from the number 2 and 9 positions.
Once again, I’ll give thoughts on each to give you a better understanding of each teams strengths.
Let’s get to it.
Pick 2 – 10 team standard league
Our running backs look well covered with Peterson, Stacy, Mathews, Bell, and Rice all locked in for solid production.
With lower expectations this year, I expect Rice to bounce back and produce high-end RB2 numbers by seasons end, though he may not get used much on this team because of the depth at the position.
Our wide-outs look promising as well. Marshall, Cruz, Wallace, Hilton, and Watkins are No. 1 WR’s on their respective clubs, and will get tons of looks throughout the season.
At quarterback, we’re nicely covered by Foles and Robert Griffin III.
Tight End is our weakest position, but it should be easy to trade from our depth at the other positions to acquire a top-flight option.
Finally, our defense and kicker are solid, if unspectacular.
Overall, I would be very pleased with this team, and I’m confident it will be a true contender.
Pick 9 – 10 team standard league
In our next example we have another strong team, despite a comparative weakness at the running back position.
With Jimmy Graham, the team will have a distinct advantage at tight end week in and week out.
Quarterback is also solid with Foles and Matt Ryan providing solid fantasy production.
Yes, RB is the weakest position with Ellington, Gore, Bell, McFadden, and Bradshaw, but this is still a sure-fire contender for the playoffs.
There is no doubt that you can build a championship roster from any draft position. Thus far our early fantasy selections have netted us our best teams.
Will that change next time out when we examine positions 3 and 8?
What do you think? What is the best position to land in a fantasy draft?
Until next time.
