Friday 20th Oct 2017

This is our fourth foray in this season's #MockDraftArmy, driven by our friend Howard Bender (@rotobuzzguy) from Fantasy Alarm.

Once again, the setup was a 15-player, PPR with 12 teams. I got the #7 slot--which is no man's in a way--and that did make things interesting.

Note we should be participating in at least one of these per week leading up to the season, so look for Mock Analysis from Marc Meltzer and me.

1.7  DeMarco Murray (RB): The joys of the seven slot means Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles are gone, so it was pretty much between Marshawn Lynch and Murray. I went for youth as theoretically being more durable. I also figure Murray wants to show Dallas they flubbed in letting him go.

2.6  Jordy Nelson (WR): There are a lot of WR's I love, but none as much as Nelson as a go-to guy. I was kind of surprised he fell back to me, but I was not about to risk his not coming back.

3.7 Joique Bell (RB): I like Bell, and I think he is on a team that will score some points. He can do everything, and, well, it is PPR.

4.6 Tre Mason (RB): I really had targeted Julian Edelman (remember, this is a PPR league) but Howard Bender snatched him from my grasp. So, I went with another emerging running back.

5.7 Jimmy Graham (TE): Surprised he was still there: happy to have him.

6.6 Eric Decker (WR): In lieu of Edelman, I got Decker a bit later.

7.7 Ryan Tannehill (QB): Still under-rated, and still my #1 choice as a lower round potentially top scoring signal caller.

8.6 Seattle Seahawks (DEF): I love grabbing a good aggressive defense, for they can score just like anyone else. And, this is the latest so far I have waited.

9.7 Dorial Green-Beckham (WR):  Rookie gamble, but one I like.

10.6 Michael Crabtree (WR): Hopefully a new home and hot quarterback helps Crabtree reach his potential.

11.7 Derek Carr (QB): I am not sure if he is a sleeper, or as good as I want him to be, but I do love Carr's skill set with nowhere to go but up.

12.6 Dan Herron (RB): Nice utility back. Wanted Darren Sproles, but hey, cannot have everyone.

13.7 Brian Quick (WR): Another not so much sleeper as forgotten man. Quick was just getting the hang when he was injured last year.

14.6 Mohamed Sanu (WR): Played well subbing for A.J. Green last year, and I hope he has a bigger role this year.

15.7 Steven Hauschka (K): I pick my kicker last, and it seems I wind up with either Hauschka or Greg Zuerlein.
