ARTICLE: Crazy-Early 2015 Fantasy Football Mock Draft (Dynasty)

Hey Starters Nation:

Looking for an early 2015 Fantasy Football Mock Draft / Rankings heading into 2015? This is a dynasty mock draft, so keep in mind that players like Marshawn Lynch, Peyton Manning, Matt Forte, among others, are going to fall much, much further than they would in a early 2015 fantasy football yearly-league mock draft, but this mock draft should be rather useful to all fantasy leaguers, as for the most part things in redraft and dynasty can often times line-up rather well entering January. On that note, enjoy!

NEWS: Aaron Rodgers and team not concerned over calf?

SMITTY: The team doesn’t appear to be worried about his calf, and neither are we. Expect him to be ready to rumble against the Cowboys in a Divisional battle. This should be a high-scoring event for all those Cowboys and Packers players. Looking for Week 19 Fantasy Football Playoff Rankings?

NEWS: Aaron Rodgers (calf) expected to play Week 17?

SMITTY: He practiced today. It wasn’t full-go, but he appears on his way to playing, and Green Bay will be playing for a first-round bye, so he is a safe play if he is in fact a go, and that’s good for all Packer fantasy players. Stay tuned. Looking for Week 17 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Roddy White active for Monday Night Football Week 14 against GB.

SMITTY: While he isn’t much more than a fantasy WR3, he is active, which is good. The Packers inactives were quiet-like — We expect this to be a high-scoring event, led by Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Eddie Lacy and of course Aaron Rodgers. Julio Jones could be in for a big game as well, but we fully expect the Packers to win this one by quite a bit. It’s football, anything can happen on game day, which is why this sport is so fun to watch. Good luck to all of you with players in this game tonight!

NEWS: Matt Forte and Alshon Jeffery disappoint in Week 10; Eddie Lacy, Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson Explode.

SMITTY: Aaron Rodgers was just unstoppable in this game, tossing for 315 yards and 6TDs in the Packers huge win over the Bears. Jordy Nelson pulled in six passes for 152 yards and 2TDs. Randall Cobb pulled in four passes for 72 yards and 1TD. Eddie Lacy once again was limited carry-wise (14-50/0TDs), but once again dominated in the receiving department (3-68/1TD). On the Bears side, Matt Forte was extremely disappointing, rushing 17 times for 54 yards and three catches for 27 yards, while Alshon Jeffery only pulled in six passes for 63 yards (but did have a team-high 12 targets). Brandon Marshall pulled in 8-112/1TD, but he left the game with an ankle injury and did not return. We will keep you posted on this as we hear more. Of all the Bears players, Matt Forte has the most ‘buy-low’ value, and given that Jeffery still saw a team-high 12 targets (and given Marshall is banged up), he too is a great buy-low.

NEWS: Eddie Lacy explodes in Week 5; He is back!

SMITTY: Eddie Lacy was one of our top buy-low players heading into Week 5, and his 105 rushing yards and 2TDs was a fantastic bounce-back effort. He looked phenomenal, too, it wasn’t like his yardage wasn’t tough-running. It was! Be sure to sign-up for our newsletters, as we often email out trade tips and ‘buy-low’ candidates heading into the coming week, like Lacy’s:

In all fairness, we have stuck by Cordarrelle Patterson as a strong buy-low candidate, yet he continues to disappoint. Given his value is climbing into low-end flex value, if not lower, he still remains a nice buy-low, but maybe stash him until Bridgewater returns (which could be next game). As for the rest of the Packers, Randall Cobb pulled in three catches for 31 yards and a touchdown during Thursday night’s win over the Vikings, and Jordy Nelson caught one pass for 66 yards and a touchdown. The only Viking to play even decent last night was Matt Asiata, who rushed 15 times for 72 yards against the Pack. Looking for Week 5 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Teddy Bridgewater inactive for Week 5; Rodgers, Cobb, Nelson and Lacy to have big nights?

SMITTY: Looks like Teddy Bridgewater believers will have to wait for his return. Jarrett Boykin is also inactive in this contest. As for that Vikings rushing game, there are two schools of thought here. First, the team will run the ball a ton, and they will, but for how long? The second school of though is that GB will get out to an early lead forcing MIN to ‘try’ to pass their way back into the game. Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon are both set to get some good work early on, but their carry totals by the end of the game will be dictated by the flow of this contest. Cordarrelle Patterson is sitting in boom or bust territory in fantasy worlds, but our advice has been to buy-low, as his current trade value is low enough that risk is just about built-in. Hopefully he is unleashed tonight! As for Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Eddie Lacy, it’s hard not to expect big performances out of every single one of them, as that Vikings defense is middle of the road against both the pass and the rush. This is a big game for Lacy, as his owners are about ready to jump ship. Looking for Week 5 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Jared Abbrederis suffers torn ACL; done for the season?

According to reports, Packers WR Jared Abbrederis suffered a torn ACL and will be done for the year.

SMITTY: Jared Abbrederis had quite the fan club on our forums, and he had some intriguing dynasty appeal; however, with Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin set to command all of the top targets in Green Bay in 2014, I’m not so sure Abbrederis would have made a big impact as a rookie anyway. He is young, hopefully he can rebound. As for Cobb and Nelson, both command 80-1,200+/8-12TD upside; Aaron Rodgers has all the tools he needs to reach 40TDs in 2014.
