Fantasy Index Mock Draft
Everybody loves Doug Martin sometime
Posted Nov. 07 at 09:47 AM
Bill Enright of Fantasy Football Champs rode the precociousness of rookie Doug Martin on the way to the high score in Week 9 of the Fantasy Football Index Mock Draft competition. Martin scored a team-high 51 points, combining with 38 from Carson Palmer on the way to 143 total points. Lenny Pappano of Draft Sharks was second with 122 points.
The competitors in the Fantasy Football Index Mock Draft include the top 11 finishers from the Experts Poll in last year's magazine. The 12th berth in this league went to Ed Borcky of Wallingford, Pa.; he won the season-long Fantasy Index Super League competition at the website last year. The draft was held in May and the results were published in the 2012 edition of the magazine.
This is a little different than a typical league. There are no trades or roster moves -- who you pick is who you get. No starting lineups, either; those are automatically calculated each week, using the best available scores (2 RB, 3 WR, QB, TE, PK and D/ST). The "best ball" format can tweak drafting strategies, e.g., selecting three defenses -- something you'd never doi in a league with a waiver wire.
To minimize luck (we want the best team to win), this isn't a head-to-head league. Instead, each team plays every other team every week. If you've got the highest score, you get 11 wins and no losses for that week. If three teams outscore you, you go 8-3. At the end of Week 16, whichever team has the best overall win-loss record is the champion.
