You've got a draft coming up, and you want to see what some of your most trusted fantasy football follows are doing this year, so you check out a quick mock draft. It's understandable, and also totally normal.
Every site does mock drafts, and this one here is no exception. In fact, our staff is doing 15 mocks this year for a variety of different league setups. They're some of our most popular features.
And our mocks don't just include picks, they include post-draft analysis so you can see not just who someone liked, but why. You can get a glimpse at what goes on in the heads of the Footballguys staff, what players they like, what strategies they employ.
Mock drafts are awesome. They're fun to do. They're fun to read about. They're useful for holding people accountable and putting their beliefs to the test. They're great.
They're also kind of problematic.
