First ESPN Fantasy Football Mock Draft!!! It's nice to see Ronnie Brown ahead of all Rookies! Chris Chambers was the #18 wideout, not bad but I think Donald Driver and Darell Jackson should come off that list immediately!!



ROUND ONE


1. LaDainian Tomlinson (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5452): Durable, dependable and a great pass-catcher. The best all-around player at the most important position.
2. Shaun Alexander (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5048): An unstoppable force in the red zone, and will remain the focal point of the Seattle offense now that it's clear he likely won't be dealt.
3. Priest Holmes (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=4047) : You have to take the chance, because he will give you amazing numbers whenever he is available to play.
4. Edgerrin James (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=4652): Yes, we would like more TDs. But his yardage numbers are excellent, and he's a very reliable performer to nab after the top three are gone. And in the Colts' offense, the scoring possibilities can always improve.
5. Willis McGahee (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=6359): The J.P. Losman (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=6781) factor prevents him from being picked ahead of Holmes or James. Could post his best numbers later in the year, when his QB hopefully becomes more comfortable.
6. Deuce McAllister (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5470): He should bounce back this year and prove he's still a top-flight back after he was erratic statistically in 2004.
7. Corey Dillon (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=3914): He's not quite done yet, and should have another superb season in 2005.
8. Peyton Manning (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=4256): In leagues that award six points for a TD pass, consider him at No. 4 overall. But it's still hard to justify taking a QB first when most formats demand you start two RBs, and they disappear so fast.
9. Domanick Davis (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=6437): The arrival of rookie Vernand Morency (http://proxy.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft05/tracker/player?id=9080) won't hurt him, but will prevent him from being overworked and he should be less of an injury risk.
10. Randy Moss (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=4262): He'll continue to excel statistically, as he will have a veteran QB and a quality No. 2 WR to partner with.
11. Curtis Martin (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=3164): I won't believe he is going to decline until I actually see it happen.
12. Jamal Lewis (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5034): It's oft-forgotten that he is still only 25 and has much more to accomplish.




ROUND TWO



13: Rudi Johnson (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5548): There is no apparent reason to doubt this guy anymore.
14: Clinton Portis (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5937): He's not returning to Denver, so don't look for great improvement.
15: Ahman Green (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=4261): Has much to prove after disappointing 2004 season. Has he taken too many big hits?
16. Julius Jones (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=6802): Could become an elite fantasy RB in 2005. Just has to stay healthy.
17. Tiki Barber (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=3937): Eli Manning (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=6760) can keep defenses from keying on him, and Barber should have another very good year.
18. LaMont Jordan (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5496): As the Oakland passing game loosens up defenses, he'll have a lot of openings to dart through, and many scoring opportunities.
19. Kevin Jones (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=6789): Another candidate for a major breakthrough season in an emerging offense.
20. Terrell Owens (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=3664): If he can come to terms soon, he'll be a good pick in the second round. If not, he'll fall from this slot soon. Would have been No. 14 overall if not for contract issues.
21. Tatum Bell (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=6800): He's in line to start for Denver, which means he's on the verge of a possibly big statistical campaign.
22. Marvin Harrison (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=3514): The yardage totals often frustrated his owners last year. But he's still a major TD producer.
23. Donovan McNabb (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=4650): He only gets picked here with the generous assumption that he will have Owens this year. If not, look for him to drop in the next one-man mock.
24. Daunte Culpepper (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=4659): Without Moss, he's no longer able to rival Manning as the top QB, and his passing TD totals could fall by a total of eight to 10.




ROUND THREE



25: Ronnie Brown (http://proxy.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft05/tracker/player?id=8800): Could be an immediate fantasy standout, even if defenses pay extra attention to him.

26. Torry Holt (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=4654): Now in his prime, a great combination of yardage and TDs.
27. Brian Westbrook (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5977): He has quelled concerns about his amount of touches by making the most of very chance he gets, and scores at an amazing rate. Nine TDs in 250 plays from scrimmage in '04.
28. Javon Walker (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5906): If he can get his contract situation settled, he'll continue to improve and solidify himself as an elite receiver in '05.
29. Chad Johnson (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5483): He's just about to deliver the best seasons of his career in the next two to three years.
30. Joe Horn (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=3646): Maybe the most underrated of all the top-level WRs in the game, he performs at a high level even if his teammates don't.
31. Antonio Gates (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=6663): There's a new king of the tight end position.
32. Fred Taylor (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=4259): His best years are behind him, but he can still roll up some good yardage totals.
33. Tony Gonzalez (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=3950): Still a great selection at a very thin position, and the best receiver on the Chiefs.
34. Carnell Williams (http://proxy.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft05/tracker/player?id=8798): Has the potential to be the most explosive rookie of 2005.
35. Reggie Wayne (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5477): Has finally earned his place as a top 10 fantasy wide receiver.
36. Trent Green (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=2547): Firmly established as one of the best QBs in fantasy football.




ROUND FOUR



37. Andre Johnson (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=6339): This could be the year he becomes a major source of TDs.
38. Darrell Jackson (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5109): Drops don't count in fantasy football. His playmaking skills do.
39. Hines Ward (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=4323): Should still perform at a very high level in a balanced offense.
40. Donald Driver (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=4863): Re-established his fantasy credibility in 2004.
41. Michael Clayton (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=6774): Should prove his impressive rookie year was no illusion.
42. Nate Burleson (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=6407): He's no Moss, but he should approach 10 TD catches again.
43. Muhsin Muhammad (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=3511): His numbers will fall in '05, but he'll still be a very good fantasy receiver.
44. Chris Brown (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=6429): When he is healthy, Brown is a fine fantasy starter.
45. Derrick Mason (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=3988): Finally, the Ravens have someone who will make the tough grabs.
46. Steven Jackson (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=6783): While Marshall Faulk (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=2728) fades, he will have to seize the opportunity.
47. Cedric Benson (http://proxy.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft05/tracker/player?id=8799): Should become a red zone threat very quickly, and it's just a matter of time before he's the clear No. 1 RB in Chicago.
48. J.J. Arrington: There are questions whether he can handle a full-time load, but the upside can't be ignored.




ROUND FIVE



49. Drew Bennett (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5798): A big target who must build on last year's exciting performances.

50. Chris Chambers (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5499): If he had more help, Chambers would be a top 10 wideout.

51. Jerry Porter (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5076): Should approach 10 TD catches playing across from Moss.
52. Kerry Collins (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=3115): With Moss and Porter, he's destined for a career season.
53. Jason Witten (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=6405): All the tools to be a standout in fantasy for many years.
54. Marc Bulger (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5197): The offense remains potent, and Holt's best days are upon us.
55. Brett Favre (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=1025): If this is the last hurrah, it's going to be a good one.
56. Ashley Lelie (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5905): He will continue to improve and emerge as a big playmaker.
57. Jimmy Smith (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=2017): Will still make a lot of noise as Jacksonville throws downfield more often.
58. Reuben Droughns (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5110): Not likely to be a major standout now that he has left Denver.
59. Jerome Bettis (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=2354): No way you can ignore last year's numbers, despite the Duce Staley (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=3980) factor.
60. Plaxico Burress (http://games.espn.go.com/cgi/ffl/request.dll?PLAYERCARD&nPlayerID=5037): Could begin to develop a fine on-field relationship with Eli Manning.

I wouldnt put Chambers on my FF team. No way. Maybe I would draft him just to trade him to a homer for a real playmaker. :cooldude:

Chambers can be a top 15 wideout, just give him a chance with a real QB

I've played fantasy football for years and years. To be honest with you its hard to rationalize drafting any dolphins player as a starter on your FFteam. (Mcmicheal exlcuded) Not consistent enough. The Def is a different story though :-)

I have had Chambers on my keeper team for what will be the 3rd year in a row. I've been waiting for his breakout year. As much as I hate the Dolphins I realize FF is different and you can't be a homer.

If he can't put up some numbers this year I'm gonna have to cut ties.

Chambers is very sporatic, but he does come through some games, just not all of them. Hopefully he can be 3/4 the receiver that randy moss was under linehans system.

Nobody, but nobody is Randy Moss. 3/4, 1/2 none of it. Randy, when he's giving 100%, is undefendable.

you never take QB's before RB's. Escpecially RB's who are fantasy monsters. McGahee was that in the last 10 games of the season.

Depends on the league your in, in my league Manning would be picked way, way before McGahee.

Depends on your point system.

I have a really good feeling that Chambers stats will gradually go up with AJ or Gus under helm for us compared to the Jay Fiedler years... Chambers has the most receptions he ever had in a game last year with AJ. And I feel that AJ or Gus are pretty much on the same level (well I think it's pretty close and the competition is going to be pretty tight), and regardless of who our starter is... I expect Chambers stats to go, but I don't think he's a fantasy stud quite yet. I all but gave up on taking Chambers in fantasy after the inconstiency mainly due to Fiedler... hopefully this year will be different but I wouldn't draft Chambers EARLY... maybe a 3rd or 4th WR in the league I usually do.

not for anything, but forget about randy moss being the greatest receiver in the league, owens has definitely proved he is currently the greatest...hes more durable, can run OVER people, and has great hands, moss is not durable, has to run by people, but clearly has amazing hands

Wouldn't Manning be picked way, way before any Rb then?

TO is a great reciver too. But Randy is the best in the league hands down. Randy doesn't HAVE to run anyone over because they are 10 yeards behind him. Nobody in the league can cover him. Nobody. It is impossible for any corner to stay with him.

I'll admit, as a homer, I have drafted CC 3 years in a row with zero results. I will find it hard to do again.

I will certainly be aiming for Randy and Ronnie though, and maybe Feeley if he falls far enough.

Chad Johnson is the Wideout you want this year.

Trust me on this. He started out slow last year, but really turned it on when Carson got comfortable.

For a #2 FF wideout Moulds and Jimmy Smith have never diappointed. They always catch a decent amount of balls, usually for a 100 or a TD, sometimes both.

You should be able to get Brown in the 2nd, but I think people will snatch him early cause of Feeley.

I never pick any Dolphins because I think with my heart and not my mind. Do I think Derrick Mason is a better reciever Than CC? No, but I would draft Mason.
