It’s nice to know that fantasy football web sites, like Fantasy Football Starters, the source I use for my fantasy insight has been very busy during the off season and the continuing lock out. Russ Bliss always brings his “A” game when he goes in depth to report on the NFL. While the news from the players and owners continues to cast a gray cloud on the 2011-2012 NFL Season, it’s good to see My Fantasy League sponsoring a mock draft.
This mock draft features a 12-team league that invited 12 fantasy sites to the table to participate. You can view the live after from the draft using this link. As I write this piece they have just started the third round. FFS’s Russ Bliss had the #8 overall pick and sticking true to his draft strategy has gone RB, WR in the first two rounds selecting PIT/RB Rashard Mendenhall and IND/WR Reggie Wayne. In my opinion a very solid foundation on which to build. That means in Round 3 he will be taking a QB. I could see Manning and Brees both going off the board before his 3rd pick, which means Rivers or Brady should still be available.
Check it out and see just how the draft is going. As a supporter of FFS, I have started a post on the forums and hopefully it generates some further discussion as to Russ’s selections and that of the other 11 participants. I have already noted on the thread some disparity as I know for a fact QBs would start going off the board late in the first round and no later than early second round in the TFL, Toumi Football League, a league I have managed for 28 years. One important fact to take into consideration, the scoring system.
