Draft Analysis: Wide Receiver Strategies

submit to reddit

Based on a suggestion by Lucas in a previous blog post, I am going to highlight a recent mock draft, give my thoughts, and see what you guys think.  Here's my first attempt.

This 12-team draft (Draft 474683) a few days ago caught my attention because of the variety of WR strategies.

For example, these three teams at the end of the draft varied widely.

Team 10 staggered 3 WR picks over 8 rounds, Team 11 took 3 WRs right away, and Team 12 took 3 wide receivers in a row in rounds 4, 5, and 6.

I think I prefer Team 10's more balanced approach the best, but the other two teams aren't too shabby either.  If Team 11 gets lucky with some RBs, he could be pretty dangerous with those awesome WRs.  Team 12 has a legitimate #1 RB along with the best fantasy QB this year, so they have a solid team as well.

What do you think?  If you have a late draft spot, what is your WR strategy?
