It's going to take seven months until leagues around the world kick off their Fantasy Football drafts. Forgive us, but we can't wait that long.
In fact, we couldn't wait until the end of this year's postseason to start our first mock draft for the 2011 season. From where we sit, it's never too early to mock. By reading this, you obviously agree, and we like the way you think.
A lot is going to change between now and this summer. For example, rookies will be drafted and free agents will be signed (this is all assuming the NFL doesn't have a work stoppage that would shipwreck our Fantasy seasons and put us through a fall and winter of boredom). Those changes will be reflected in future mock drafts; for now, we're focused on current NFL players, though we are taking potential free-agency movement into consideration.
Here's where you fit in: Not only can you check in with our mock draft daily, but you can correspond with the people drafting! If there's a draft pick you like or feel was too early, send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org . Put "Mock Draft" in the subject line and share your thoughts on the draft.
All touchdowns are worth six points in this league, and we feature a starting lineup of QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, 1 FLEX, K and DST. There will also be six reserve spots for a 15-round draft.
