2017 fantasy football: Our first mock draft!

New, comments

Le’Veon Bell was the first overall pick and someone drafted Johnny Manziel. My God.

For some reason, many Jacksonville Jaguars fans have an unhealthy obsession with the draft and fantasy football. Maybe it’s because we enjoy any and all facets of football.

(Or maybe it’s because we’ve had losing records for the past decade.)

Whatever the reason, we love fantasy football so the community decided to do a mock draft and we’ll probably do more as the offseason winds on, so if you missed out on this one look out for more.

The rules of the league were simple. No dynasty. Standard scoring and rosters. Points per reception. Snake draft. Do you go running back or wide receiver with your first pick? How early is Rob Gronkowski taken? How soon is too soon for a quarterback?

Let’s get to it — our draft order was as follows:

2. Wale Olaogun, Emcee, Writer, Podcast Host (@theMCwale)

3. Chris Thornton, Friend of Zach Goodall (@Mistochristopho)

I was surprised that three running backs came off the board in the first five picks, what with this being PPR.

One thing that didn’t happen was a quarterback in the first two rounds. Good job, everybody.

Who has the worst roster? Who has the best? Was Le’Veon Bell a good choice at No. 1 overall or would you have gone with someone else.
