Fantasy football 12-team, non-PPR mock draft: RBs flying off the board

The ESPN fantasy experts conducted their first non-PPR mock draft of the season, and the rush to get running backs in the opening rounds was as evident as ever.

How did the fantasy experts who went RB with each of their first two picks do? What about the ones who started their draft with one RB and one WR? And how about the one who went TE then WR?

Take a look for yourself and learn how the fantasy draft is flowing as we get closer to the start of the NFL season.

The participants this week, in order of draft position, were: NFL Nation editor Tom Carpenter, fantasy researchers Kyle Soppe and Damian Dabrowski, fantasy editor Joe Kaiser, fantasy analysts Mike Clay, Matt Bowen, Matthew Berry and Eric Karabell, NFL Nation’s Michael Rothstein, fantasy editor Sachin Chandan, NFL Nation’s Mike Triplett and fantasy analyst Daniel Dopp.
