Preseason Mock Draft

By Mike Antoine

Mock drafts have always been an excellent resource for evaluating perceived player values in the eyes of fellow fantasy managers. In particular, rookies, injury-prone players, and underachievers are often difficult to gauge, as far as their draft value, without the assistance of mock drafts. Over the past month, a group of Cafe members participated in a ten round mock draft for the upcoming 2006-2007 fantasy basketball season. Here are the results.
