Staff Fantasy Football Draft Recap: Aaron Rodgers Falls Far

The numberFire staff got together for a 12-team mock draft. Take a look and see how some of us think draft boards should look on draft day.

After getting excited watching our beloved football finally return as Week 1 of the preseason had concluded, some of the staff at numberFire got together to crank out our first mock draft of the season.

As we dive deeper into August, the anticipation for the regular season and all of the fantasy football greatness that comes with it grows by the hour.

To satisfy some of that anticipation, a few of us completed a 16-round, 12-team mock draft that featured standard lineup rules: 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1Flex, 1TE, 1K, 1D/ST. The scoring rewarded half a point per reception, along with quarterback scoring as four points per touchdown pass.
