Last week, scoutPRO’s resident fantasy expert Nelson Sousa participated in a National Fantasy Football Championships (NFFC) fantasy draft for a feature in the Championships’ magazine.
Top fantasy football competitors were invited to draft and eventually play out the league over the course of the 2012 season. Yes, this draft is very early ahead of the start of the 2012 NFL season, but it is a great opportunity to get a perspective on the mindset of some of the world’s most successful fantasy football managers. Early mock drafts and high profile live drafts like this provide a good portrait of how millions of fantasy drafts across the country will play out in a few weeks’ time.
Nelson commented that this year’s draft progressed fairly routinely, but he did notice a great deal of depth on display, with strong performers falling into the later rounds. Several managers didn’t take their 2nd running backs until the 7th round and beyond, and Nelson didn’t select a starting TE until the 12th!
Nelson will be keeping scoutPRO subscribers up to date how this team performs. For now, he is putting his nose back to the grindstone to analyze this influential draft more closely.
