#TwitMock Rounds 7 & 8 – Fantasy Football Experts Draft

It’s official. We’re in the middle rounds of our Fantasy Football Experts Draft known as #TwitMock 2012! We hope you’ve enjoyed it so far. The experts have been leery of drafting quarterbacks and tight ends, but these next few rounds should change some of that. They’ll also be looking to fill backup spots among running backs and wide receivers.

Follow along here and on Twitter for over the better course of a week as Fantasy writers make picks.

We’ll also be tweeting analysis about each of our picks, and the analysis will be posted here for readers to follow along with.

Here are the picks and write-ups from:

This draft began on Monday, Aug. 13, with the hashtag #TwitMock.

The #TwitMock Fantasy Football draft is a NON-PPR league that scores four points for passing TDs, and starts 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 K and 1 DST. There is no flex position for this league.

#TwitMock 2012 7.01 WR Kenny Britt, TEN: Some baggage, but also lot of potential, particularly if Locker takes off. http://t.co/939X8IWk

7.03 Philip Rivers, QB, San Diego Chargers

Jim Day of FantasyTaz.com


#TwitMock 7.03: Even in a bad 2011Rivers was the #7 QB in this system. Was 4th year before. Like his chances to bb. http://t.co/Cok0rj9S

7.04 Mark Ingram, RB, New Orleans Saints

Geoff Stein of MyFantasyLeague.com


@: #TwitMock 7.04 Mark Ingram, RB, NO: Think he gets 200 carries in the high-powered Saints offense. http://t.co/PBHxSQO0

#TwitMock .. 7.08 Blackmon JAX — As Mr. Everything in JAX, he has limits.. and oppertunity. Will he have 3 scores per month, or 3 total?

7.10 Titus Young, WR, Detroit Lions

Matt De Lima of FFToolbox.com


Grabbing Titus Young at 7.10 is a reach, about a round early. That said, I think he’s one of the most obvious sleepers of 2012. #TwitMock

8.03 Roy Helu, RB, Washington Redskins

Matt De Lima of FFToolbox.com


Roy Helu should be the RB1 for Washington. Faith is required to believe Shanahan will follow through on that though. #TwitMock
