Welcome to 25 Yards Later, Sports Obsessive’s fantasy football podcast! Believe it or not, Nick and Allijah only have one more monthly show before returning to our weekly schedule in August! So while it might seem early for a fantasy mock draft (and I would argue that it’s never too early for a mock draft), the season is right around the corner, so you may as well get a leg up on the most exciting part of fantasy football. It was a 13-round, 10-team draft, PPR, single-QB with no TE premiums, and no kickers or defenses performed live on the show. You can check out the results here.
As always, there are a ton of burning questions that we look to answer. What are our personal philosophies for redraft? Which first-round RB1 is Allijah down on? Conversely, which middle-round RB is he high on? Which player should you draft before his ADP skyrockets? Where do Davante Adams and Aaron Jones deserve to be drafted with the uncertainty surrounding Aaron Rodgers? Where are the ideal places to take your tight ends and quarterbacks? What late-round running backs are on our radar? How bad can an auto-drafting team be (looking at you, Team 8!)?
Also, we cover some of the recent news in the NFL, including Adam Vinatieri’s inclusion as the first member of the Touchback Player Hall of Fame and Julio Jones’ apparently immanent trade from the Atlanta Falcons.
