With NFL training camps starting across the league, Rizzla hammers out a dynasty league fantasy football rookie mock draft.
Dynasty League – Fantasy Football Rookie Mock Draft
Fantasy Football is a year long adventure for dynasty league players. Come November the hardcore dynasty owner is already researching the incoming rookie class and attempting to position himself for rookie draft picks. In January once the underclassmen declaration deadline passes mock drafts become weekly reading material. As soon as the Super Bowl is over it is on to free agency and NFL Combine hype. After those have wrapped up it is time for dynasty rookie draft season to begin. Not all leagues draft early, but even managers in those who may not draft early, may start to participate in mock drafts to get themselves ready for the real thing.
By the time training camp rolls around a good chunk of dynasty leagues have already had their rookie drafts. However, there are some leagues that like to wait until training camp battles begin to crystallize. There is also a loud contingent who likes to draft as close to the regular season as possible to mitigate the impact pre-season or training camp injuries can have on a league. This is true not only for redraft but for some dynasty leagues as well.
With just over a month to go before the regular season begins and with more and more information pouring in from the end of off-season training activities (OTA’s) and the start of training camp, the hunger for the fantasy season to begin hits a fever pitch. With that in mind, it seems like a good time to dig into a dynasty league rookie mock draft.
This is not an ADP listing or a rookie ranking. Rather it is a mock draft that attempts to project the value a manager should place on certain players. Marquise Brown is the fourth overall pick in this mock draft, however in rookie drafts you can often wait until the late first, and in some cases the early second round to draft him. ADP and/or ECR have zero impact on this rookie mock draft.
