2018 Fantasy Football Mock Draft 2.0 (10-Team, PPR)


Two weeks ago, I did my first fantasy mock draft for a 10-team, non-PPR league. Mock 2.0 is a 10-team, PPR league using Fantasy Pros Draft Simulator, and I have the fifth pick based on randomization. [Note: keep in mind that it’s still early in the process, as things could change significantly by the end of the summer]

 

Round 1

1.1: Le’Veon Bell, PIT RB

1.2: Antonio Bronw, PIT WR

1.3: Todd Gurley, LAR RB

1.4: David Johnson, ARI RB

1.5: Ezekiel Elliott, DAL RB

1.6: DeAndre Hopkins, HOU WR

1.7: Alvin Kamara, NO RB

1.8: Julio Jones, ATL WR

1.9: Odell Beckham Jr., NYG WR

1.10: Michael Thomas, NO WR

 

My thoughts: It was a very close choice between Zeke and Alvin Kamara, especially since it’s a PPR format, but I think a determined Elliott could lead the league in rushing again in 2018.

 

Round 2

2.1: A.J. Green, CIN WR

2.2: Saquon Barkley, NYG RB

2.3: Keenan Allen, LAC WR

2.4: Melvin Gordon, LAC RB

2.5: Kareem Hunt, KC RB

2.6: Christian McCaffrey, CAR RB

2.7: Dalvin Cook, MIN RB

2.8: Leonard Fournette, JAX RB

2.9: Davante Adams, GB WR

2.10: Devonta Freeman, ATL RB

 

My thoughts: Christian McCaffrey will get plenty of opportunities in the passing game, and he should be more efficient as a runner in Norv Turner’s offense. Dalvin Cook was also an option.

 

Round 3

3.1: Amari Cooper, OAK WR

3.2: Rob Gronkowski, NE TE

3.3: Mike Evans, TB WR

3.4: T.Y. Hilton, IND WR

3.5: Adam Thielen, MIN WR

3.6: Travis Kelce, KC TE

3.7: Brandin Cooks, LAR WR

3.8: Doug Baldwin, SEA WR

3.9: LeSean McCoy, BUF RB

3.10: Zach Ertz, PHI TE

 

My thoughts: Thielen will have a new quarterback this season, but most believe it will be an upgrade; plus, the breakout star showed he can produce with both Sam Bradford and Case Keenum over the past two years, so I’m not worried about a lack of chemistry.

 

Round 4

4.1: Larry Fitzgerald, ARI WR

4.2: Alshon Jeffery, PHI WR

4.3: Jerick McKinnon, SF RB

4.4: Tyreek Hill, KC WR

4.5: Jordan Howard, CHI RB

4.6: Stefon Diggs, MIN WR

4.7: Michael Crabtree, BAL WR

4.8: Josh Gordon, CLE WR

4.9: Allen Robinson, CHI WR

4.10: Jarvis Landry, CLE WR

 

My thoughts: There were a handful of different options here, but I like the idea of pairing Stefon Diggs with Thielen, as the teammates have a great combination of weekly floor and upside.

 

Round 5

5.1: Golden Tate, DET WR

5.2: Joe Mixon, CIN RB

5.3: Demaryius Thomas, DEN WR

5.4: Delanie Walker, TEN TE

5.5: Aaron Rodgers, GB QB

5.6: Evan Engram, NYG TE

5.7: Greg Olsen, CAR TE

5.8: Russell Wilson, SEA QB

5.9: Jimmy Graham, GB TE

5.10: Alex Collins, BAL RB

 

My thoughts: I could have waited on a quarterback, but with four reliable options already drafted, I think Aaron Rodgers gives me a really strong group of starters so far.

 

Round 6

6.1: Tom Brady, NE QB

6.2: Corey Davis, TEN WR

6.3: Mark Ingram, NO RB

6.4: Dez Bryant, FA WR

6.5: JuJu Smith-Schuster, PIT WR

6.6: Rashaad Penny, SEA RB

6.7: Chris Hogan, NE WR

6.8: Trey Burton, CHI TE

6.9: Derrius Guice, WAS RB

6.10: Deshaun Watson, HOU QB

 

My thoughts: I would have liked to have picked a wide receiver here to FLEX since it’s a PPR league, but it’s important not to reach for a position over best player available, and Rashaad Penny should be locked into a huge role for Seattle.

 

Round 7

7.1: Jamison Crowder, WAS WR

7.2: Kirk Cousins, MIN QB

7.3: Cam Newton, CAR QB

7.4: Carson Wentz, PHI QB

7.5: Marvin Jones, DET WR

7.6: Drew Brees, NO QB

7.7: Andrew Luck, IND QB

7.8: Emmanuel Sanders, DEN WR

7.9: Matthew Stafford, DET QB

7.10: Sony Michel, NE RB

 

My thoughts: Jones probably won’t catch 80+ passes, but I think he’s a strong value here, as he could go for 1,200 yards and double-digit scores.

 

Round 8

8.1: Dion Lewis, TEN RB

8.2: Royce Freeman, DEN RB

8.3: Pierre Garcon, SF WR

8.4: Duke Johnson, CLE RB

8.5: Kenyan Drake, MIA RB

8.6: Julian Edelman, NE WR

8.7: Tarik Cohen, CHI RB

8.8: Derrick Henry, TEN RB

8.9: Lamar Miller, HOU RB

8.10: Devin Funchess, CAR WR

 

My thoughts: Edelman would arguably be a top-40 PPR pick if not for his four-game suspension, so I’m thrilled with getting him in the eighth; he would probably slide right into the FLEX spot when he returns.

 

Round 9

9.1: Marquise Goodwin, SF WR

9.2 Kerryon Johnson, DET RB

9.3: Robert Woods, LAR WR

9.4: Randall Cobb, GB WR

9.5: Jay Ajayi, PHI RB

9.6: DeVante Parker, MIA WR

9.7: Jordy Nelson, OAK WR

9.8: Sterling Shepard, NYG WR

9.9: Chris Thompson, WAS RB

9.10: Ronald Jones II, TB RB

 

My thoughts: There were plenty of strong options available, but Jay Ajayi is a potential early-down workhorse for one of the best offenses in the league; I’d be shocked if he lasts this long in real drafts this summer.

 

Round 10

10.1: Tevin Coleman, ATL RB

10.2: Sammy Watkins, KC WR

10.3: Will Fuller, HOU WR

10.4: Carlos Hyde, CLE RB

10.5: Jamaal Williams, GB RB

10.6: Kyle Rudolph, MIN TE

10.7: Marlon Mack, IND RB

10.8: Marshawn Lynch, OAK RB

10.9: Isaiah Crowell, NYJ RB

10.10: Dede Westbrook, JAX WR

 

My thoughts: In hindsight, passing on Aaron Rodgers and getting Kirk Cousins later would have been great so I have the Minnesota passing attack, but fantasy owners need to go BPA, and it’s a dangerous game trying to play around too much.

 

Round 11

11.1: Kelvin Benjamin, BUF WR

11.2: Rishard Matthews, TEN WR

11.3: Jack Doyle, IND TE

11.4: George Kittle, SF TE

11.5: Nelson Agholor, PHI WR

11.6: Robby Anderson, NYJ WR

11.7: Eric Ebron, DET TE

11.8: Cooper Kupp, LAR WR

11.9: Jordan Reed, WAS TE

11.10: D.J. Moore, CAR WR

 

My thoughts: What’s stopping Nelson Agholor from taking another step after a breakout in 2017? Even if he just repeats what he did last year, this is a great value for the former first-round pick.

 

Round 12

12.1: Rex Burkhead, NE RB

12.2: Theo Riddick, DET RB

12.3: DeSean Jackson, TB WR

12.4: Josh Doctson, WAS WR

12.5: Corey Clement, PHI RB

12.6: Ty Montgomery, GB RB

12.7: Kenny Stills, MIA WR

12.8: Ben Roethlisberger, PIT QB

12.9: Philip Rivers, LAC QB

12.10: James White, NE RB

 

My thoughts: If Green Bay uses a three-headed committee, Ty Montgomery would likely be the main receiving option, so he’s worth a late-round flier in PPR leagues, especially since I already have Aaron Rodgers.

 

Round 13

13.1: Charles Clay, BUF TE

13.2: C.J. Anderson, CAR RB

13.3: Marqise Lee, JAX WR

13.4: Jameis Winston, TB QB

13.5: Aaron Jones, GB RB

13.6: Jimmy Garoppolo, SF QB

13.7: Jared Goff, LAR QB

13.8: Tyler Eifert, CIN TE

13.9: Patrick Mahomes, KC QB

13.10: Matt Ryan, ATL QB

 

My thoughts: Aaron Jones is usually the first running back taken on the Packers in all formats, so it’s a surprise to see him still available in the 13th round; if he takes over the backfield like some expect, this gives me insurance for Ty Montgomery.

 

Round 14

14.1: Cameron Brate, TB TE

14.2: Michael Gallup, DAL WR

14.3: D’Onta Foreman, HOU RB

14.4: Samaje Perine, WAS RB

14.5: Anthony Miller, CHI WR

14.6: Christian Kirk, ARI WR

14.7: Bilal Powell, NYJ RB

14.8: Devontae Booker, DEN RB

14.9: Ricky Seals-Jones, ARI TE

14.10: Doug Martin, OAK RB

 

My thoughts: There’s a chance that Kirk struggles early on the outside after spending a lot of time in the slot at Texas A&M, but the upside is worth it here.

 

Round 15

15.1: Jaguars D/ST

15.2: Vikings D/ST

15.3: Rams D/ST

15.4: Eagles D/ST

15.5: Chargers D/ST

15.6: Texans D/ST

15.7: Seahawks D/ST

15.8: Broncos D/ST

15.9: Ravens D/ST

15.10: Chiefs D/ST

 

My thoughts: Fantasy owners should rank their fantasy defenses and wait until Round 15 to take the best one available.

 

Round 16

16.1: Greg Zuerlein, LAR K

16.2: Stephen Gostkowski, NE K

16.3: Justin Tucker, BAL K

16.4: Matt Bryant, ATL K

16.5: Jake Elliott, PHI K

16.6: Mason Crosby, GB K

16.7: Wil Lutz, NO K

16.8: Matt Prater, DET K

16.9: Dan Bailey, DAL K

16.10: Harrison Butker, KC K
