    Anyone courageous enough to try their fantasy football league draft on an iPad? Seems pretty risky to me. Maybe at least have your laptop next to you just in case! [FantasyFootballCalculator – Mock Draft on your iPad]

      Nope, works great and I’ll be using it next week!

        Nice, let us know how it goes! I’m mostly worried about the ability to click and drag a player to a queue or draft box if necessary.

      Feel free to buy me an iPad so I can check it out.

      Hey Nathan, are you sure that you don’t need Adone Flash in order to draft on your draft day?

      • Marc 2:39 am on August 26, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I just tried a mock draft and it didn’t let me and it took me to a Flash page to install? What am i doing wrong?

    Five minute mock-draft 

    With draft day approaching for many fantasy football leagues out there, I figured it’d be somewhat helpful to give a glimpse of how the beginning of your draft might go down. I quickly ran through the first four rounds of a simple 12 team, snake-style mock draft to get an idea of which players will be gone by which round. Hopefully this will prevent you from being caught completely off guard when your draft begins and will help you see the different teams you can end up with based on your draft strategy.

    Note: You could make the case for a couple of the top wide receivers going towards the end of the first round, but because it’s a snake-style draft, they’d get drafted in the beginning of the second round (to the same teams) anyways.

    Please feel free to comment with your thoughts on which team looks the best (and worst) to you.

      Boy you hate Marion Barber, huh? K. Smith, too….

      • Brandon 11:04 am on August 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        The Barbarian has been falling slowly due to the fact that he might not even be the best running back on his team (see Felix Jones.) I’m sure the team will give him plenty of opportunities and will probably run a lot more with T.O. gone, but I’m sure they’ll hand Felix the rock a bunch too, which could hurt Barber’s production.

        As for Kevin Smith, he’s on the Lions, so who knows how he’ll end up doing this year. He put up decent numbers last year, but now that opposing teams can game plan against him and don’t have a whole lot to focus on in the passing game, his numbers could end up declining a bit.

          Nice points, but Lendale White 3rd round? ahead of smith, grant and barber

          Lendale in 08 had 200 carries 773 yds 15 tds with 5 rec 16yds 0 tds with 10 targets
          Barber had 238 carries 885 yds 7tds with 52 rec 417yds 2tds with 61 targets in on 12 games

          so if felix jones does take away you can still expect those numbers… do you see lendale getting better/more production in 09′.

          Please link to a draft you were in were you went addai ahead of barber…

        • Brandon 1:27 pm on August 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I think you’re a little confused …Barber is the first pick of the fourth round, while Addai is the 10th pick of the fourth round.
          Anyways, this was just a quick “five minute” mock draft I did to get a general sense of where players would be going in a round by round basis, not to be taken as the holy grail of where the players should be drafted. On my running back rankings, I have LenDale White and MBIII at 18/19, so I don’t see a huge difference in the overall fantasy points they’ll be putting up this season.

      Team H looks solid with Warner, LT, Slaton, & D.Bowe.

      I’m assuming that’s Darrell Jackson Team E picked up in the 4th… That’s a strange pick. Aside from that, I think E (“E is for e-roc”) would be my team of choice in this mock..

      Team J (Team “Has Been” sans Andre Johnson) would have been phenomenal in 2006, but this is 2009.

      • Brandon 10:58 am on August 28, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hey e-roc, D. Jackson is actually DeSean Jackson, the second year receiver for the Eagles. Is Darrell Jackson even still playing? Hah.

        I think my favorite team is K though, as it’s loaded with running backs and has a top-tier receiver as well.

    Mock draft v1.0 

    Over the past week or so, I have been participating in an eight team mock draft over e-mail, hosted by http://www.WestCoastNonsense.com. The teams were made up of people from different fantasy football blogs, including FFLibrarian.com, FantasyFootballBlog.net, TheFantasyFootballReport.com, WestCoastNonsense.com, and PortlandSportsman.blogspot.com. The draft followed the standard serpentine format, with the basic scoring system being 6 points for RB/WR score and 4 points for a QB score. Below you can see the final team that we ended up with:

    QB: Matt Hasselbeck, SEA
    RB: Joseph Addai, IND
    RB: Clinton Portis, WAS
    WR: Larry Fitzgerald, ARI
    WR: Roy Williams, DET
    RB/WR: Reggie Bush, NO
    TE: Antonio Gates, SD
    DEF: Pittsburgh
    Bench: Dwayne Bowe, WR, KC
    Bench: Edgerrin James, RB, ARI
    Bench: Deion Branch, WR, SEA
    Bench: Javon Walker, WR, OAK

    After the jump you can see the round-by-round results, as well as our commentary on the individual picks…

      Nice team. Love your RBs.

      It’d be even nicer if it was a real league! Hopefully I get as lucky in my real drafts.

      Forgot to mention that we’d love to take part in any future mock drafts if you do any 10/12 team mocks and have any openings…we’ve relaunched our blog (finally), be sure to check it out.

    Yet another ridiculous Jamal Lewis pick in a mock draft 

    Is the Jamal-Lewis-in-the-first-round thing going to be a pattern in fantasy drafts this year? A month ago, I noticed with some horror that he’d gone tenth overall in Yahoo’s “expert” mock draft. Now here he is going SIXTH in The Hazean’s May mock draft. Haze’s advice to anyone considering a similarly outrageous pick:

    Finding a site that lists Average Draft Positions can be useful. Even if you are the biggest Lewis believer and think he might put up top 5 RB numbers, if the ADP suggests him being drafted in the 3rd or 4th round, take a risk that Lewis will be there in the 2nd or 3rd round and draft Westbrook here and Lewis a round or two later. I actually like Ryan Grant better than Lewis.

    Good point. If you want to make the argument that Lewis is going to put up first-round numbers, that’s fine – but that doesn’t mean you have to waste a first-round pick on him. He’ll almost definitely be there for you in the second. If he isn’t, well, that’s one fewer 29-year-old RB on your roster.

      Agreed! I know it is my mock draft and all, but I did not make that pick and was shocked when it happened. I will have a different mocker with me for June, so expect different results!

    • Matt 11:45 am on June 2, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      I’m hoping we can just say that people tend to make riskier picks in mock drafts than they would during the real deal. I can’t imagine that anyone would actually want to head into the season with Jamal Lewis as their #1 guy.
