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. In this mock draft, I tested out 'zero wide receiver' strategy - explaining the concept in the draft plan section.
- 12 Teams
- PPR Scoring, 6pt Passing TDs
- Start QB-2RB-2WR-TE-Flex
- Draft Position: 1.06
If I had a typical strategy in redraft leagues it would be waiting on quarterback and tight end as a general rule. In this mock draft, I would try out 'zero wide receiver'. Late-round receiver would be another name where the goal is to load up on other positions early and go with an upside-based and volume approach at wide receiver in the later rounds. As a result, I would be open to a stud quarterback and tight end in the first few rounds and plan on being aggressive with running backs within the top tiers. Doing a zero wide receiver or zero running back mock draft refines the optimal late-round selections at various positions, which can often reverse engineer the best early round strategy.
