XN Sports In-Season Fantasy Football Mock Draft: How Quickly Things Change

Josh Collacchi and Adam Pfeiffer held an in-season fantasy football mock draft to see how much things have changed in four weeks.

Antonio Brown

Through four weeks in fantasy football, there has been a mess. Eli Manning is a top tier quarterback, LeSean McCoy, Eddie Lacy, Montee Ball, and Joique Bell have been busts to this point, DeMarco Murray is the best back in fantasy football, and Martellus Bennett is currently TE1.

So, XNSports’ Adam Pfeifer and Josh Collacchi did a mock draft, in-season. Why? With how crazy fantasy football has been over the first month, this draft will show exactly how much has changed compared to August when our drafts were going on. Find out who’s stock rose, fell, and everything in between in this 12-team PPR mock draft.

Antonio Brown was a first-round pick, DeMarco Murray went number one overall, Kelvin Benjamin was drafted in the third round. It sounds insane, but considering what each player has done to this point, and their outlook for the rest of this season, that is just how fast fantasy football can change.

Here is the draft itself, broken down by what team did what in each round.

Enjoy.
