When it comes to fantasy football drafts Cowboys Dalton Schultz Jersey , I am always amused when people start producing mock drafts well in advance of Labor Day weekend. There are too many unknowns due to injuries, position battles and stupidity to make them worthwhile. I suppose if you are in a league that mandates that you draft weeks before the season starts, it makes sense but, even that cracks me up. If it is a league for fun, go crazy. However, most of us have a vested financial interest in how our team does and I sure as hell don't want any of my top picks missing time due to non-regular season injury or off-the-field issue. It is pretty interesting to see the shift in average draft position in the weeks leading up to the season. Players like Steven Ridley and Cam Newton have cratered and players like James White and Emmanuel Sanders have shot up.

Mock drafts can vary greatly depending on the scoring system, especially when using Points Per Reception, and whether or not the league is a redraft league or a dynasty league. For our purposes, this is a standard fantasy football league scoring system for a redraft league.

This assumes a starting roster of 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE, 1 K and 1 D/ST. Points would be awarded for the following actions:

Passing: 1 point for every 25 yards, 4 points for each Touchdown, and -2 for each InterceptionRushing: 1 point for every 10 yards, 6 points for each Touchdown, and -2 for each fumble lostReceiving: 1 point for every 10 yards, 6 points for each TouchdownKicking: 3 points for every Field Goal made and 1 point for each successful Extra PointDefense: 2 points for each fumble recovered, 2 points for each interception, 1 point for each sack, 2 points for a shutout and 2 points for a safety
Round 1

1 Jamaal Charles, KC

2 LeSean McCoy, PHI

3 Adrian Peterson, MIN

4 Eddie Lacy Jets Trenton Cannon Jersey , GB

5 Matt Forte, CHI

6 Jimmy Graham, NO

7 Marshawn Lynch, SEA

8 Calvin Johnson, DET

9 Demaryius Thomas, DEN

10 Montee Ball, DEN

11 A.J. Green, CIN

12 Peyton Manning, DEN

Evaluation:聽Having one of the top 5 picks is easy since you could make a case for any of those running backs. After that, it is a bit sketchy as there is great depth at tight end and quarterback this year. It is nice to think about a team with Jimmy Graham or Peyton Manning on it, but I would prefer a running back to start my team off and build around.

Round 2

13 DeMarco Murray, DAL

14 Brandon Marshall, CHI

15 Dez Bryant, DAL

16 Andre Ellington, ARI

17 Zac Stacy, STL

18 Drew Brees, NO

19 Giovani Bernard, CIN

20 Alshon Jeffery, CHI

21 Doug Martin, TB

22 Le'Veon Bell, PIT

23 Aaron Rodgers, GB

24 Ryan Mathews, SD

Evaluation:聽Decision time in round 2. Should you go traditional and get a second RB or is it best to get one good RB and one good WR? I think that there is great depth at WR this year and recommend that you get 2 solid RBs.

Round 3

25 Julio Jones, ATL

26 Jordy Nelson Cheap Malik Jefferson Jersey , GB

27 Antonio Brown, PIT

28 Randall Cobb, GB

29 Alfred Morris, WAS

30 Arian Foster, HOU

31 Julius Thomas, DEN

32 Andrew Luck, IND

33 Rashad Jennings, NYG

34 Toby Gerhart, JAC

35 Victor Cruz, NYG

36 Reggie Bush, DET

Evaluation:聽If you grabbed two RBs already, you definitely need to grab a WR in round 3. If you split them, I recommend grabbing that second RB. If you grabbed Peyton, Brees or Rodgers, you need to balance out your team in this round as the tiers begin to fall off from here.

Round 4

37 Vincent Jackson, TB

38 Rob Gronkowski, NE

39 Andre Johnson, HOU

40 Matthew Stafford, DET

41 Keenan Allen, SD

42 Frank Gore, SF

43 DeSean Jackson, WAS

44 Michael Floyd, ARI

45 Pierre Garcon, WAS

46 Roddy White Authentic J'Mon Moore Jersey , ATL

47 Chris Johnson, NYJ

48 T.Y. Hilton, IND

Evaluation:聽Questions abound in round 4 due to direct or indirect health issues. Stafford should have a big year, but I really like Kennan Allen at this spot.

Round 5

49 Larry Fitzgerald, ARI

50 Ben Tate, CLE

51 Torrey Smith, BAL

52 Steven Jackson, ATL

53 C.J. Spiller, BUF

54 Jordan Cameron, CLE

55 Cordarrelle Patterson, MIN

56 Reggie Wayne, IND

57 Fred Jackson, BUF

58 Shane Vereen, NE

59 Marques Colston, NO

60 Percy Harvin, SEA

Evaluation:聽If you thought round 4 was tough, round 5 is even more difficult. There are a handful of players with very high upside here, such as Cordarrelle and C.J., but I like Cameron quite a bit since Cleveland has the absolute worst WRs ever lined up in professional football.

Round 6

61 Julian Edelman, NE

62 Jeremy Maclin, PHI

63 Eric Decker, NYJ

64 Colin Kaepernick, SF

65 Vernon Davis, SF

66 Wes Welker Bengals Malik Jefferson Jersey , DEN

67 Emmanuel Sanders, DEN

68 Trent Richardson, IND

69 Tom Brady, NE

70 Joique Bell, DET

71 Golden Tate, DET

72 Bishop Sankey, TEN

Evaluation:聽Tom Brady in round 6? It has been a long time since we have seen anything resembling this. I still think I would pass and grab Ryan, Rivers or Cutler in one of the next 3 rounds. I like Sanders if I want a WR here or Bell if I want a RB. He had great numbers last year, even in a split role. That role should continue this year with him getting the red zone work. Plus, Reggie isn't Mr. Durability.

Round 7

73 Matt Ryan, ATL

74 Jason Witten, DAL

75 Mike Wallace, MIA

76 Kendall Wright, TEN

77 Terrance Williams, DAL

78 Michael Crabtree, SF

79 Ray Rice, BAL

80 Maurice Jones-Drew, OAK

81 Knowshon Moreno, MIA

82 Riley Cooper, PHI

83 Darren McFadden, OAK

84 Nick Foles, PHI

Evaluation:聽There is a lot of. Womens John Kelly Jersey , Cheap Goran Dragic Jersey , Womens Cliff Avril Jersey , Womens Jordan Akins Jersey ,
