One of the best ways I like to prepare for the fantasy football season is with a mock draft. It can simulate many different variables, draft positions, and strategies. It will give you a sense of what the real draft will look like, and I highly recommend using this tool.

For this fantasy football mock draft, I will be drafting from the 8th position in a 12-team format with point-per-reception (PPR) scoring. All the other spots will be auto drafted. I will be using the mock draft simulator from FantasyPros, in case you would like to practice on your own. Here is how the first three rounds went, along with my entire drafted team.
