Fantasy Football 2014: Complete 12-Team Mock Draft Breakdown

The start of the 2014 NFL season may still be a couple of months away, but fantasy football mock draft season is already in full swing.

It’s never too early to start your draft preparation. Diving head first into a mock draft is the perfect way to get a sense of every player’s current fantasy stock and figure out where the best values lie.

While expert rankings and player projections are undoubtedly useful tools in your pre-draft planning, these fantasy forecasts only go so far in preparing you for the pace and unexpected turns of a live setting.

Your draft can play out in an infinite number of ways. Whether you’re drafting with your buddies, a group of Internet strangers or other fantasy diehards, how you adjust your strategy in the thick of a live draft could make all the difference between winning and losing your league this season.

I participated in the following mock draft, completed on ESPN.com, in early June 2014. Twelve teams took part in this 16-round, snake-style draft, employing ESPN standard (non-PPR) league scoring. An in-depth, pick-by-pick analysis is provided through the first three rounds, followed by a more general thematic discussion in Rounds 4-16.

Each team’s roster includes the following positions:

QB, RB1, RB2, WR1, WR2, Flex RB/WR, TE, D/ST, K, Bench (seven total spots)

Join me as I build my roster, discussing my thought process and draft strategy along the way.
