    March Mock Draft: Anyone may participate

    12 bets? What, $8 for each bet?

    All of them suck. I'll still put my team up against any of the 12 teams drafted here, including Team 4, best-ball style, for any amount up to $100. Anyone? Anyone? Offer closes at the start of the NFL Draft.

    Coming in at QB4 last year with 21.45 fantasy points per game in the 8 games he played... 7.12 - QB Matthew Stafford, DET

    Yeah, I would have taken him at 5.4 if Chark had been gone--at least in a mock. Dunno if I will have the courage to depend on him in a real league, however.

    Watson was taken at 6.7.

    I took Hurst in the last round of THIS draft as an opportunity to educate readers on the opportunity that Hurst presents, but obviously getting a top five-ish TE in the double-digit rounds when you draft for real will be even better. (And if you don't understand why Hurst will be a top five-ish TE, then you need to review the history of TEs under the coaching of Dirk Koetter.)

    2020 NFL Draft Profiles - RB Cam Akers

    Colors should be visible, yes, but with indistinct focus, depth perception could suffer.

    I'm not really sure how productive the oft-injured Henry will be without Rivers at QB, but since I missed the opportunity to make the 6.09 pick for my pet team, let me tell you how I would have rounded out this 7-round draft. Normally, I wouldn't take a QB in the first 7 rounds at all, but since this is only a 7-round draft (and a mock draft at that), it would be nice to end up with a full QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE skill position lineup. Therefore at 6.09 I would have taken Tom Forking Brady. That's right, the greatest QB of all time with the chip on his shoulder of proving he's not done yet, dropped into a pass-heavy offense with two top-5 WRs and two credible TEs? Fuhgeddaboudit. If Jameis Winston can throw for 5000 yards and 30 TDs in this offense, imagine what Tom Brady can do--especially with 20 fewer INTs!! And I would expect Hayden Hurst to be available at 7.04 for my TE. The 2018 first-round pick of the Ravens comes to fill the void left by Austin Hooper in Atlanta--and wherever Dirk Koetter is the OC, the TE is fantasy-relevant. Playing second fiddle to Mark Andrews in 2019, Hurst was still only 160 yards and 3 TDs from being a top-10 non-PPR TE; 600 yards and 6 TDs for a Koetter TE? Pfft... by Week 10. So Brady, Henry, Ingram, Kupp, Green, Chark and Hurst. I'll put that team up against any other team in this draft, best-ball style, for any amount up to $100. Anyone? Anyone?

    I know you're one of the most cantankerous posters on site, but don't make yourself out to be one of the densest as well. Axe Elf said both Green and Chark are top 10 prospects. It's not "walking it back" by appending "when healthy" to Green, because an unspoken "when healthy" caveat applies to every player in the league. When he has been healthy, Green has been a top 10 performer. That's not particularly vague. And it wasn't Axe Elf who doesn't see Chark as a credible WR2 in 2020; it was whoever ranked him #29 among WRs. Axe Elf stated unequivocally that Chark is a top 10 prospect, and explained why he is a top 10 prospect, based on his top-12 production with Minshew over the course of 12 games projected out to a full season of 16 games. (Oh, and that's if he stays healthy too.)

    Axe Elf, duh--the standard by which all things fantasy football are measured. Yet another example of the nursery rhyme that all of your nannies used to make you feel safe in your beds... Listen to the Elf; Trophy on the shelf. Listen to the others; Go crying to your mothers. It would be called silly, if one was doing it randomly. If you're Axe Elf, it's called a business model. As I mentioned before, A.J. Green has never finished a healthy year (a 16-game season) outside of the top 10. He may not finish the year healthy in 2020 either, but the track record is that you will get top 10 production out of Green when he IS healthy, with Andy Dalton at QB. A QB like Joe Burrow might even provide an upgrade. D.J. Chark was Gardner Minshew's favorite target in his breakout year, and he finished as the WR12 in non-PPR scoring despite playing in only 14 games (he was the WR11 in ppg) and despite Nick Foles being his QB for two more games in which he failed to break 50 receiving yards or score a TD. So if he can be WR12 in basically 12 games with Minshew, he can be a top 10 WR over the course of 16 games with Minshew. #23 for Green can be written off as uncertainty about his QB and his health, but #29 for Chark is what's silly. You really don't expect Chark to even be a credible WR2 in 2020? smh...

    5.04 WR D.J. Chark, JAX Derrick Henry Mark Ingram Cooper Kupp A.J. Green D.J. Chark Every player a top 10 prospect, 5 players deep. Add a top 10 QB and TE, and this team is locked and loaded.

    For future reference, people usually wait a pick or two before they pick again, rather than making consecutive picks.

    He wasn't. I just din't want anyone screwing up the Derrick Henry team.

    ERROR 4.09 WR A.J. Green, CIN My team can use another WR who has never finished a healthy season outside of the top 10.

    Through 3.09, there were exactly 20 RBs taken, 10 WRs, 2 TEs and 1 QB.
