NFL Kickoff is just over a week away, which means fantasy football draft season is here in full force. And there's no better resource to help guide you to another championship than our all-new 2019 NFL Draft Guide. This year's edition is a true fantasy behemoth featuring customized projections from 14 different scoring systems, more mock drafts than ever before, over 500 player profiles, positional tiers, keeper tiers, rankings and a ton of exclusive columns.

One of our mocks is that of the IDP variety. Check out a sneak peak of it below, conducted on August 21 and run by Gary Davenport as he takes a look here at how his own team turned out:

IDP Mock Team Davenport

Full disclosure—I was the architect of this mess.

I'm usually not the first team to draft an IDP, but when Darius Leonard lasted until the 6/7 turn, I wasn't about to pass on that value. I'm not about to pat myself on the back too much though—not after reaching for Josh Gordon with the first pick of the fifth round.

The four-deep at running back looks solid on this team, but four backs won't be starting every week. Leonard, Cory LittletonJaylon Smith and Alec Ogletree will. That's a nice edge to have every week at the linebacker position.

It's a tradition among my fantasy teams for the wide receivers to be a potential weak spot. If Josh Gordon can stay healthy and sober and maintain his per-game production—and if I can cobble together a decent trio until Golden Tate, I should be OK. Maybe. Sigh.
