Mock Draft Report Card: The Early-Round Draft Position

Navigating a mock draft from an early draft position

July and August of the annual fantasy football calendar signal mock and real draft season. Mock drafts are an excellent exercise to work out strategies, get battle tested, and refine player versus player decision-making as a clock ticks down. My go-to site to quickly join a mock draft is fantasyfootballcalculator.com.

THE SETTINGS

  • 12 Teams
  • PPR Scoring, 6pt Passing TDs
  • Start QB-2RB-2WR-TE-Flex
  • Draft Position: 1.02

DRAFT PLAN

My typical approach is to wait on quarterback and tight end until the late rounds unless overt value presents itself in the opening 8-10 rounds. I prefer to get at least one high-upside, high-floor/usage running back within the first two rounds. The only time I would potentially break the rule is in tight end or quarterback premium formats. With an early draft position (1.02 in this case), I was unsure of my running back options late in Round 2 if I passed on a bell cow at 1.02. However, building around top receivers in PPR leagues is a high-floor strategy.
