Fantasy Football Mock Draft

2008 Fantasy Mock Drafts

A 2008 fantasy football mock draft is an excellent tool for determining which players might be available in what rounds during your upcoming draft.

This allows you to develop a strategy ahead of time and hopefully gain an edge on your competition.

While fantasy football mock drafts aren�t foolproof, they are a fun way to prepare for the real thing and get into the fantasy mindset.

2008 Fantasy Mock Draft

This 2008 fantasy football mock draft is based around the following scoring system:

  • 1 pt. for every 10 yards rushing or receiving
  • 1 pt. for every 25 yards passing
  • 1 pt. for every reception
  • 6 pts. for every rushing, receiving or passing touchdown

This fantasy football draft follows the serpentine format, though draft position is redrawn every other round. Therefore, a team is not stuck drafting in the same position every other round the entire draft.

Football Scouting Report

Fantasy Mocks - Fantasy Football DraftI’ll include a short scouting report on our twelve imaginary football teams. This mock draft simulates a stable league where most teams have been around for years, so the team owner knows a team’s drafting trends.

To explain the draft logic of each team, here’s the league scouting report in alphabetical order. This is a league which has been around for years and years and is remarkably stable, so there’s a long scouting report on each of these teams.

Feel free to skip this section if you’re only interested in the mock draft.

Backyard Alleycats – The Alleycats owner is a retiring sort of guy, which makes it all the more strange that he has a running feud with one of the league’s biannual commissioners. The Alleycats comes prepared to every draft and usually collects solid, though often unexciting, selections.

Blitzkrieg – After winning the league two years ago, the wheels came off in 2007. Blitzkrieg is a veteran fantasy football owner who drafts veteran NFL players. You can depend on Blitzkrieg to have a solid looking team coming out of the draft.

Fantasy Football Mock Draft - Fantasy Mock DraftsDamage Incorporated – Considered the most unpredictable drafter in the league, the one constant is that Damage Inc. loves the Denver Broncos and is sure to pick one or two rounds before conventional logic would suggest he should. Damage has a few head scratchers every draft, but also has a talent for "lucky" draft picks.

Dirty Old Man – He’s been around since the beginning of the league, and perhaps since the beginning of time. DOM has won the league a couple of times, but he’s married now and doesn’t see the fuss in draft lists. He just uses a cheat sheet from a magazine he picks up on the way to the draft.

Four Horsemen – The Four Horsemen are four time champions and were once the New York Yankees of the league, but they’ve entered a phase of down years, perhaps because neither owner watches Sunday football much anymore. The Horsemen go with the young runner drafting philosophy, hoping to draft valuable players in breakout years.

Insane Clown Passanisi – Former league champion with the best single season in league history (15-1), the ICP blend the standard early round running back heavy roster with a best-player-available strategy. Whether he would agree with our drafting Brandon Jacobs as a best-player-available, I’m not sure.  

Jolly Gentlemen – The Gents are in 9 different leagues every year and have a gambler’s mentality. They usually draft a bunch of receivers and the first kicker off the board, almost as a badge of honor. The Jolly Gents drafted a "conventional" team last year and it was a disaster, so it’s back to the old way in 2008.

Junkyard Dawgs – The Dawgs take a childlike glee in fantasy football, and enjoys bedeviling the league commissioner any chance he gets — to the point of drafting an average of one of the Commish’s running back’s handcuffs per year. He’s made the playoffs five years running, so don’t dismiss the J-Dawgs as a novelty act, though.

Lonestar Beer Cans – The Beer Cans once made the league finals three years in a row — only to lose each time. This team continues its long quest to win the league, and usually throws in a couple of nice value picks of players in breakout years. He’s convinced there’s a league conspiracy against him.

The Parrotheads - The four-term league commissioner and the defending league champ, who spent the better part of 15 years trying to win his first title. Depend on him to draft Torry Holt — always. After years of being the last team to draft a QB, he took Manning in the first last year and road him to the championship. Go figure.

Red-Headed Stepchild – Still considered a "newb" after four years in the league, the Stepchild hasn’t recovered from his collapse in the league finals two years ago, when he road Ladainian Tomlinson’s record season to a 14-1 record entering the title game.

Snowbad – This youth minister is an all-around nice guy and longtime league elder who wasted years and years of his fantasy football life drafting the Manning-Harrison combo and finishing at the bottom of the standings. He’s beyond that phase now…or is he?
