The Entire List Of Mocker’s Offseason Calls

Accountability is good, so in order to make it real easy, here’s all the calls I made in articles this year. Not all articles take stances or make clear calls, so if you see one not referenced below, that’s the reason. Of course, please keep in mind that the way my arguments are framed is all about the likelihood of something happening, and paying for probabilities, which should remain the focus in any post-mortem over end results. There’s also sometimes key elements at play like targeting high upside even with a slim chance of happening, which is exceptionally hard to quantify. There isn’t any real objective way to judge the accuracy of probabilities or likelihoods though, so I’m fine with declaring a call right or wrong by if the player beats his average draft position at the time it was written. There are some articles where the call made was more specific than that, and they are referenced below. Redraft calls are sorted by position, with a winter and spring dynasty summary at the bottom. There’s also links, with some comments, already-accepted-losses, and retractions throughout. Please feel free to get on record before the season starts, and post in the comments which ones are wrong and why. Thanks for all the support and taking the time to read what any of us on the site write, not just myself, and I hope we in some way helped you prepare for what will be a successful 2016 season.
QUARTERBACKSAfter suggesting Peyton Manning would bounce back to form, and Nick Foles would be fine in the Rams offense, I had some understandable hesitancy when it came to taking stands on quarterbacks this season. Hoping for some regression to the mean, here are the limited articles taking stands on pass throwers:
- June – Buy Joe Flacco at QB23.
- August – Buy Jay Cutler at QB24.
- August – Buy Matthew Stafford at QB15.
- August – Buy Alex Smith at QB25.
- August – Buy Ryan Tannehill at QB22.
- July – Sell Jameis Winston at QB14.
