Draft Strategy

Mock Madness: Using Zero RB To Create A Monster in 2017

When I draft my fantasy football teams, I usually follow the best player available (BPA) approach. Frequently, BPA will morph into Zero RB based on the players on the board, but flexibility is the key. Completing a number of mocks is a key point of preparation for any draft season. In this piece, I’ll examine the results of one recent mock and look at how a Zero RB approach provided the upside necessary for winning a league. My 2016 mock draft included No. 1 TE Travis Kelce in Round 6 and breakout star Melvin Gordon in Round 7. The following results are from a mock draft for a 12-team PPR draft with a starting lineup as follows: 1-QB, 2-RB, 3-WR, 1-TE, 1-Flex, D/ST, and K. I had the fifth selection in this draft.
