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.

After testing out the Zero Running Back and Zero Wide Receiver tactics, plus mock drafting from Early and Late draft positions, it was time for the final exam - the optimal results from the middle of the draft order. In the early rounds, I would be flexible with best player available. For tight end, I planned to take my starter in the mid-rounds by previous testing data. At quarterback, I was likely to wait until the double-digit rounds to address my first option outside of overt earlier value.
