Give Me The Rock Mock Draft
Posted by Erik on September 17, 2008
GMTR’s Mock Draft is up and running. I made the cut and am part of the group of Fantasy Freaks who are going to duke it out on the Draft Board. Woohoo!
I am in 11th position out of 12 and this concerns me. Why should it? Well because last season gave us a lot of volatility due to massive player movement due to blockbuster trades, season-ending injuries and the emergence of some new fantasy studs on the block. We will truly feel the repercussions in THIS year’s rankings and player valuations.
The lucky bums who ended up picking in the first 4 spots are at a first round advantage as they’re pretty much in the “no-brainer” zone. They’re challenge will be how to capitalize on their round one initiative and draft solid 2nd-rounders to go with their picks. There are some shoe-in choices for the next 4-5 picks after. Solid choices that are pretty much still popular across the net.
I happen to find myself in the zone that needs a little bit more speculation and drafting creativity (last 3). I have to consider who will end this year in the TOP 10 among a plethora of viable and debatable options. I will really be putting my first round bounce strategies to the test now.
Stay tuned as I keep as many of my appendages crossed so that I don’t end up with a complete FUBAR of a draft and wind up looking like a DONKEY. 😛
