The “So-Called Fantasy Experts” recently completed the first four rounds of a 2015 Fantasy Football Mock Draft!
You can see our results for Rounds 1 & 2 here.
We only did a couple rounds because we felt so much would change once the 2015 NFL Draft hits, we didn’t want it to be useless.
We will be doing a mock draft next week, which will include all of the rookies, obviously, so we’ll see which if these players below climb — or drop out of — mock drafts.
There is a lot of football to review for Fantasy fans with the 2015 NFL Draft only a day away, so let’s get right into it. And now, here is the exciting conclusion to the “So-Called Fantasy Experts” Fantasy Football Mock Draft!

When we look over the last rounds, what were some of the more interesting takes in Round 3?
- Eight receivers were selected.
- Jimmy Graham was the second-to-last pick.
- Only three running backs were selected.
What interesting things jumped out about Round 4?
- Two rookie running backs were selected back-to-back
- Nine total running backs were drafted.
- Payton Manning was the last selection.
The 2015 NFL Draft will obviously have an impact on Fantasy Drafts moving forward, but this was an early look of where you might be able to expect players in your draft to be selected. This is a standard scoring league, so running backs were obviously value a little more than receivers.

David Gonos: DeMarco Murray, Demaryius Thomas, Alfred Morris, Brandin Cooks
So of the 12 “So-Called Fantasy Experts,” who came away with the best lineup?
I’m excluding myself since I’m biased because my team is clearly awesome, so my vote would have to go to either Travis Pastore or Charles Lentz.
Pastore ended up with two wide receivers, who could each finish as the highest-scoring receiver in 2015 Fantasy leagues, and it looks like Tony Romo is going to need to throw more this year with the departure of Murray. I’m a little skeptical on Tre Mason, but I really love Andre Ellington’s upside.
For Charles, I think he has two backs who can finish in the top 10, and two great playmakers with Beckham Jr. and Graham. Granted, those picks do have a little risk involved, as we only have one year of work to judge Beckham Jr., and Graham is with a new team. Still, you have to take a few risks to bring home a trophy.
Thanks for checking out our mock draft, and make sure to check back with the So-Called Fantasy Experts to see how the 2015 NFL Draft will impact your 2015 Fantasy Football season.
