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

smitty staff

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: AJ Green and Jermaine Gresham both ruled out for today; Trent Richardson active for Wild Card battle.

SMITTY: Get Jermaine Gresham and AJ Green out of playoff fantasy football lineups! As we said before, when AJ Green was doubtful and not ‘out’, we expect to see a whole bunch of Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard. However, if the Colts get out to an early lead, both backs could be limited on the ground, meaning Hill could have more value early on in the game, with Gio being used a lot more later on in the contest. Game flow will determine a lot with those Bengals players, and Mohamed Sanu will surely get a ton of looks with both Gresham and Green out. With the Bengals left without their best player, we will likely see a ton of Andrew Luck to TY Hilton/Coby Fleener/and gang. Looking for Week 18 Fantasy Football Playoff Rankings?

NEWS: TY Hilton now looking like a better shot to play Week 17?

SMITTY: This is tipping back in the right direction for TY Hilton owners, as he was looking very iffy to play Week 17 earlier in the week. Still, you have to wonder how much he will play, or for how long. The Colts have made it clear that they won’t bench their starters in Week 17, as they want to gain some confidence heading into the playoffs, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the starters will play the entire game either. It’s risky playing Week 17 in fantasy football, that’s why we recommend all leagues have their fantasy championship in Week 16. However, we are here to support all leagues and types, but just know that Hilton is almost impossible to sit as a fantasy wR2 if playing, but comes with risk. Also, if you need a WR3 or WR4, Donte Moncrief remains a high-risk/super-high-reward play in Week 17 (even after last week’s huge letdown, which was not Moncrief’s fault).

NEWS: Dwayne Allen trending to sit Week 17; Coby Fleener a sleeper start of the week at TE?

SMITTY: Nothing is official, but it’s looking like Dwayne Allen is trending to sit Week 17, which would make Coby Fleener a very solid TE play in Week 17. The thinking here is that the Colts will look to get Allen healthy for the playoff battle, and it’s logical. Stay tuned, this could certainly change, but even if he plays, he could play a little, so regardless Fleener is a nice play in a week where big name players aren’t necessarily a lock to produce. While on the topic of the Colts, TY Hilton is back at practice and looking more likely to play Week 17; however, he could play a little or a lot, that’s a risky thing to predict given the Colts will also want to rest Hilton for the playoffs. While he burned many fantasy owners last week (not his fault given how Luck played in Week 16), Donte Moncrief has strong fantasy WR3-type appeal heading into Week 17. Stay tuned on both of these guys! Looking for Week 17 Power Rankings?

NEWS: TY Hilton inactive for Week 16.

SMITTY: Donte Moncrief is a great start with Hilton out.

NEWS: TY Hilton (hamstring) very questionable for Week 16.

SMITTY: He was thought to be near 50/50 according to some sources, but others, including Colts ESPN reporter Mike Wells, feel it would be a bit of a shock to see Hilton on the field given the Colts have already locked up the AFC South. Anything can happen though, so stay on both our news and Smart Alerts on this one. If he does sit, Donte Moncrief has all kinds of sneakiness to him heading into Week 16.

NEWS: TY Hilton (hamstring) not practicing yet on Thursday?

SMITTY: This is a tough spot to be in for all you TY Hilton owners out there, as the Colts have already clinched the AFC South. The Colts could be cautious with Hilton so that he is ready to rock in the playoffs. Stay on this via our news wire, and be certain to dial into our Smart Alerts in order to get updates on the receiver heading into kickoff (should news break). Looking for Week 16 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Rashad Jennings will not play tonight; Andre Williams to start 2 more weeks?

SMITTY: It sounds like the team is just hopeful that Rashad Jennings will return for Week 11, so he could be out longer than expected. This makes Andre Williams an excellent low-end RB2 for at least two more weeks. A-Williams will start against the Colts tonight and he should have a strong outing just as long as the Giants can keep it close for at least a couple quarters. Expect Andrew Luck, TY Hilton, Ahmad Bradshaw, Dwayne Allen and Donte Moncrief to all have strong performances tonight — Luck is always 3TD-capable. Odell Beckham has the most appeal of those Giants WRs this week.

NEWS: Andrew Luck, TY Hilton, Arian Foster and Andre Johnson go nuts on Thursday night.

SMITTY: What a fantasy contest this one was. Andrew Luck threw for 370 yards, 3TDs, and 1INT against the Texans in this Week 6 Thursday night battle, and TY Hilton pulled in 9 balls for 223 yards and a score. On the Texans’ side of the football, Andre Johnson pulled in 7 balls for 99 yards and a TD, while Arian Foster totled 109 rushing yards and 2TDs on 20 rushes (and pulled in 3 passes for 32 yards. While I love Hilton, and think he could continue to play at a high level, he isn’t a bad sell-high candidate coming off this one… same goes for Andre Johnson, whom I also like, but he could still be inconsistent this season, so test those trade waters using our Trade Analyzer.
