Format Five: Let the computer do it

Listen, I won my first two seasons playing fantasy football because of the computer. In my first year, the automatic drafter took some former undrafted guy named Arian Foster for me, who went on to have 2,220 total yards and 18 touchdowns. So it works…sometimes.

The computer does its own thing, and there’s nothing I can do about it. Here are the results:

Draft One:

  1. Jerry Tillery, IDL
  2. Kaleb McGary, OT
  3. Riley Ridley, WR
  4. Daylon Mack, IDL
  5. Bobby Evans, OT

Draft Two:

  1. A.J. Brown, WR
  2. Charles Omenihu, IDL
  3. Jamel Dean, CB
  4. Bobby Evans, OT
  5. Jordan Ta’amu, QB

Draft Three:

  1. Hakeem Butler, WR
  2. Michael Deiter, OT
  3. Jamel Dean, CB
  4. Daniel Wise, IDL
  5. Jordan Ta’amu, QB

Draft Four:

  1. N’Keal Harry, WR
  2. Trayvon Mullen, CB
  3. Dre’Mont Jones, IDL
  4. Bobby Evans, OT
  5. Jarrett Stidham, QB

Draft Five:

  1. DeAndre Baker, CB
  2. Emanuel Hall, WR
  3. Michael Deiter, OT
  4. Dontavius Russell, IDL
  5. Isaac Nauta, TE

The simulator lists the needs of the Chargers, in no particular order, as CB, IDL, IOL, OT, S, QB, TE and ILB. It didn’t matter when those spots got filled to the computer, they just went with the best guy at the Chargers’ pick. Three wide receivers and one corner in the first round might not be the selection of choice for most fans, though. Three times, the mock took a quarterback with its fifth-round selection, which would be fine, but I don’t believe this is the year they look at any kind of quarterback with Tyrod Taylor on the roster, barring a massive draft fall from a solid prospect.
