Fantasy Football: Mock Draft (Tom Brady Version)

Fantasy Football: Mock Draft (Tom Brady Version)

By Muntradamus

 

All Pre-Season long I have been touting Tom Brady as not only the #1 Fantasy QB, but also the #1 Fantasy option. 

People have been concerned about lacking in other positions, so I did a couple of mock drafts with the CHEAT SHEET WIZARD by FantasyPros.  I recommend running their free trial so you can see how great it is, from there you decide if you want a huge advantage in your draft for $12.99.

TEAM 1 (109 Points) VS. TEAM 2 (106 Points)

 

 

What I could have done better for both drafts:

Team 1, I should have made it a point to get Stephen Gostkowski with Tom Brady.  If the Patriots do not score a TD, and Gostkowski makes a FG.  I essentially get a free TD.  I did not go with a combo of any Patriot WR’s, because the Patriots are simply too deep. If you own Brady, you essentially own all the Patriots options.

 

Team 2, if I go into my draft game plan knowing that I will be targeting Matt Ryan, I should have drafted Julio Jones and Roddy White in round 2 & 3.  Another mock draft on that team coming out later in the week.

  1. Did a few mocks and I must say I am happy with taking rb rb wr wr and waiting on a qb. This is the team I came out with doing that strategy

    Peyton Manning, Jay Cutler
    RB: Chris Johnson, Matt Forte, Mark Ingram, Ryan Williams, Jacquizz Rodgers
    WR: Greg Jennings, Hakeem Nicks, Marques Colston, Dwayne Bowe, Pierre Garcon, Nate Washington
    TE: Antonio Gates
    PK: Dan Bailey
    TD: Chicago Bears

    Now with taking Brady first round this is what I got
    QB: Tom Brady
    RB: Darren McFadden, Doug Martin, Reggie Bush, Isaac Redman, Kevin Smith, Daniel Thomas
    WR: Demaryius Thomas, Brandon Marshall, Jeremy Maclin, Kenny Britt, Greg Little, Brian Quick
    TE: Jimmy Graham
    PK: David Akers
    TD: Philadelphia Eagles

    You cant tell me that first team is not solid. Sure manning has some risk but his upside compared to what I will miss out on at RB and WR are not too far off.

    Convince me otherwise? My draft is tomorrow night so I am trying to get some quick advise man.

  2. Leo looking at these two teams, I would still take the Brady team and here is why.

    Peyton Manning was a much better QB indoors than outdoors. Yes Manning should have a top 10 QB season, but I expect Brady to throw for over 45 TDs this year. Peyton on the other hand is looking for 25-30. The Broncos have a weapon in Willis McGahee, he will steal a lot of TDs from Peyton.

    Brady vs Manning in this matchup is an easy 15 Point swing for that team.

    The fact you were able to get McFadden and Brady is essentially having 2 1st round picks. I have McFadden ranked ahead of CJ2K, and the combination of Peyton & CJ vs. Brady & McFadden easily gives the Brady team another advantage.

    I do not like Forte that much this season, I do however like him more than Martin. The team with Brady definitely has better depth at the RB position as Bush, Redman, and Smith could all be viable options.

    WR by taking D-Thom on the Brady team, you essentially have one of the key WRs that will make or break Peyton’s season. If Thomas does great, then you got a big chunk of Peyton Mannings #s to begin with. Grabbing one or two NE WRs does not work the same way since Brady has so many targets.

    The TE,K,D all goes to Brady as well.

    The only thing I like more about the non Brady team is your group of WRs. However that is not nearly enough to convince me otherwise why I would not take Brady in the 1st round.

    Good luck in your draft, BEAST DOME will be covering Fantasy Football all season long.

  3. in the 12 team leagues i am in there is no way i get mcCoy-marshal-S.Jackson-dez and gates
    you must be playing with idiots

  4. Ron that is hilarious you say that.

    I was actually using the CHEATSHEET Wizard where i was using the rankings of other expert sites. I have no idea how Dez fell to me in the 5th round, but you always have to be ready for those people who let someone slip in their draft who should never have in the 1st place.

    Marshall and Steven Jackson are definitely going to be there in round 2 and 3 if you have an early pick. But Gates and Dez in round 4 was very luck.

    Let me know if any questions come up.
