No. 368 - Mocking Heads

On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan, Brian, Ben and Dave mock draft in a fun way that gives us get a fresh angle on the fantasy value of over 160 skaters heading into 2021-22.This kind of mock draft (which is the format in which Brian and Elan first drafted against each other 20-odd years ago!) sees each of the four managers take turns making the first pick in a round. Whoever has first pick in the the round selects a team, and a player from that team. Then, the other three managers take turns each drafting one player from the selected team. The league is all skaters, points only, and no positional requirements.Through the draft, we discover the biggest intrasquad divides between rich and poor fantasy producers, debate the proper order of fantasy relevance amongst teammates, and fret at the possibility of having to pick a fourth player from several NHL rosters.
