2 QB Dynasty Mock Rounds: 1-5

As it stands right now, our dynasty league that will be starting next season will be a two QB league. With each team required to start two QB, position scarcity will become much more of an issue and the focus of the draft will shift to locking up someone in the QB position. This draft will be in mock format so I will be drafting each team as if these teams were actually selecting their roster. Since there are 12 teams, the teams will be given a letter as a name. Team A picks 1 in round 1, B picks 2, etc. The starting roster for the league will be 2 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, and 2 Flex (RB/WR/TE), 1 DST. The remaining 6 rounds of this draft, to get all starters, will be completed in the next week.

 

  1. A- Aaron Rodgers
  2. B- Drew Brees
  3. C- Tom Brady
  4. D- Matthew Stafford
  5. E- Cam Newton
  6. F- Lesean McCoy

  8. H- Ray Rice
  9. I- Calvin Johnson
  10. J- Michael Vick
  11. K- Maurice Jones- Drew
  12. L- Larry Fitzgerald

  58. J- Matt Flynn
  59. K- Alex Smith
  60. L- Kenny Britt

So that’s it for the first 5 rounds. Here’s a look at how the teams turned out

  • A- Aaron Rodgers, Adrian Peterson, Hakeem Nicks, Joe Flacco, Reggie Bush
The team with the lucky first pick will almost certainly take Rodgers, like this. With a solid QB the took the risk of AP in round 2. I like the idea but would cover AP with a better, more certain RB2 than Bush if I did it again.
  • B-  Drew Brees, Matt Forte, Julio Jones, Ahmad Bradshaw, Sam Bradford
Went with Brees at the 2, which is almost obvious. Aside from Brees, this team is very young. Julio had an up and down year but he has all the talent in the world. I’d be quite pleased to actually draft this team.
  • C-  Tom Brady, Jamaal Charles, Roddy White, Andy Dalton, Brandon Marshall
Brady is aging, but, in my opinion, is still the obvious pick at three based on QB scarcity. Jamaal is somewhat risky because of a 2011 injury, but I think he’ll recover fine. Not a bad start to a team.
  • D- Matt Stafford, Marshawn Lynch, Greg Jennings, Aaron Hernandez, Rashard Mendenhall
Mendenhall is a risky pick because of a late season injury as is Marshawn. Besides Mendy, this team seems pretty solid. The Pats gave Aaron carries in the playoffs. If that happens next year, he’ll be even better than last season.
  • E- Cam Newton, Rob Gronkowski, Darren McFadden, Dez Bryant, Jay Cutler
This team may be one of the bigger “boom or bust” teams. McFadden could be a top 5 RB easily if he were able to finish a season. Gronkowski will be a solid career player but is unlikely to ever repeat 2011. Dez has mental issues holding back his obvious talent.
  • F- Lesean McCoy, Philip Rivers, Peyton Manning, Victor Cruz, Vernon Davis
Picking Manning was a risk, but a fairly smart one with a solid QB in Rivers. Obviously with Manning you will want to carry a third QB for a while with his uncertain status. Probably a little early on Vernon but that’s the postseason performance hype. Regardless, I feel Davis is certainly a top 8 dynasty TE.
  • G-  Arian Foster, Tony Romo, Matt Schaub, Percy Harvin, Jordy Nelson
This team turned out to be my favorite. Nelson and Harvin both fell and teaming them with, arguably, the best QB duo and a great RB helps.
  • H- Ray Rice, Chris Johnson, Andre Johnson, Josh Freeman, Ryan Fitzpatrick
I decided to make one team wait on QB to see the results.With two good RB and a good WR your other positions would  be okay but Freeman/Fitz is gross. This team can’t rely on a rookie QB pick either as they would have pick 5 in the rookie draft and would likely miss RG3 and Luck.
  • I- Calvin Johnson, Eli Manning, Frank Gore, Mark Ingram Christian Ponder
I don’t care for the way this team turned out. I certainly reached on Ingram but he is young and an injury slowed him down last year. Not a Gore fan so I would be certain to pick up Kendall Hunter in the next few rounds. I do like Ponder as a QB2 but he may be a reach in the top 60. With Megatron and a 4th pick in the rookie draft I would grab a rookie WR to pair with the best WR.
  • J- Michael Vick, Ryan Mathews, Jimmy Graham, Wes Welker, Matt Flynn
Welker fell, too far, to this team in early round 4 so that helps this team. I like Mathews as a young feature back and Graham as a lock for the TE spot for the next few years. Flynn is questionable depending on where he goes, but I like him. Drafting Vick is a risk but he has the ability to score major points.
  • K- Maurice Jones-Drew, AJ Green, Ben Roethlisberger, Mike Wallace, Alex Smith
This team ended up with a top 5 RB and the best WR duo in the draft. Alex Smith will be a suitable QB2 but this team has opportunity to get a rookie QB or Trent Richardson in the draft and be sitting pretty.
  • L- Larry Fitzgerald, Matt Ryan, Demarco Murray, Steven Jackson, Kenny Britt

With the first pick in the rookie draft, this team will have first dibs on Luck or RG3 to pair with Matt Ryan. This team will have two solid RB and a pretty good WR duo going into the season. 12 seems like a pretty good pick to have if you miss out on the first 4 or 5 picks.
