Mock Draft Report Card: Early Draft Position

Grading team-building and tier drop-offs through an early draft position

Before training camp 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


  • 12 Teams
  • PPR Scoring, 6pt Passing TDs
  • Start QB-2RB-2WR-TE-Flex
  • Draft Position: 1.04


Like many years, 2019 feels ripe for waiting until the final rounds (or at least Round 10+) for a quarterback and a tight end in a start-one format. I am planning on going running back with a top-half draft position, like in this mock draft, with the back half of Round 1 more of a discussion between the next tier of running backs versus a top wide receiver. Being flexible with the ratio of running backs to wide receivers based on best player available is key within the opening five or six rounds.
