I filled in at the last minute for a mock draft last Thursday night with the FFToday staff - it ended up being only an okay draft for me, but it was excellent prep for 2008. And though my team/draft got no love at all from the FFToday guys (as evidenced in the votes for best draft on this Team by Team Recap), I still enjoyed getting a chance to draft with real live people this early in the season. Check out the Round by Round recap of the mock draft - it was a 10-team, serpentine draft with 16 rounds to field a 1 QB/ 2 RB/ 3 WR/ 1 TE/ 1 K/ 1 DEF lineup and the scoring system is noted on the recap page.
Fortunately I´ll have a chance to redeem myself later this week with a mock draft via email with West Coast Nonsense and his crew of football bloggers. I´ll keep you posted on how that mock draft goes...
Okay, I've been chugging my coffee like a Maxwell House pledge this morning, so I'm feeling a bit overly caffeinated. Let's dive into the football links for today:
- Is Greg Jones worth keeping an eye on this year? Read CBS' Press Box View: Jaguars on the run for thoughts on whether or not Jones will eat into MJD or Taylor's fantasy production.
- For those of you in auction leagues, check out Ask The Commish's Fantasy Football Auction Values.
- ProFantasySports has some unique thoughts on guys you might be able to snag for cheap this year in Don´t sleep on these potential draft values...good stuff and thanks for the new names and thoughts, PFS.
- I think you all know how much I enjoy a good offensive line ranking so take a look at what The Huddle has up so far with their oline analysis
- FF Geek Blog is starting to churn out their power rankings, which will be updated throughout the summer. Check out their rankings for WR, RB and QB so far.
