2020 Fantasy Football Mock Draft 1.0 (12-team, 0.5 PPR)

On every Friday over the next several weeks, I am going to be doing various fantasy mock drafts with different formats using the FantasyPros draft simulator. First up is a 12-team, 0.5 PPR draft from the No. 11 spot.


Round 1

1.01: Christian McCaffrey, CAR RB
1.02: Saquon Barkley, NYG RB
1.03: Ezekiel Elliott, DAL RB
1.04: Alvin Kamara, NO RB
1.05: Michael Thomas, NO WR
1.06: Dalvin Cook, MIN RB
1.07: Derrick Henry, TEN RB
1.08: Davante Adams, GB WR
1.09: DeAndre Hopkins, ARI WR
1.10: Joe Mixon, CIN RB
1.11: Julio Jones, ATL WR
1.12: Tyreek Hill, KC WR


Thoughts: I would have liked for one of the elite running backs to fall, but you can’t go wrong with Julio Jones, and there are a few backs that I’d be happy with in Round 2.


Round 2

2.01: Nick Chubb, CLE RB
2.02: Josh Jacobs, LV RB
2.03: Kenyan Drake, ARI RB
2.04: Aaron Jones, GB RB
2.05: Miles Sanders, PHI RB
2.06: Lamar Jackson, BAL QB
2.07: Chris Godwin, TB WR
2.08: Mike Evans, TB WR
2.09: Austin Ekeler, LAC RB
2.10: Travis Kelce, KC TE
2.11: George Kittle, SF TE
2.12: Allen Robinson, CHI WR


Thoughts: The top-four picks in the second round (after Nick Chubb) were all players that deserved consideration, and I went with Josh Jacobs as a back that can push 300 carries if Las Vegas improves as a team in 2020.


Round 3

3.01: Patrick Mahomes, KC QB
3.02: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, KC RB
3.03: Kenny Golladay, DET WR
3.04: A.J. Brown, TEN WR
3.05: Todd Gurley, ATL RB
3.06: D.J. Moore, CAR WR
3.07: Amari Cooper, DAL WR
3.08: JuJu Smith-Schuster, PIT WR
3.09: Adam Thielen, MIN WR
3.10: Robert Woods, LAR WR
3.11: James Conner, PIT RB
3.12: Leonard Fournette, JAX RB


Thoughts: Pairing James Conner with Josh Jacobs gives the roster two clear feature backs, and people might be forgetting just how good the Pittsburgh offense can be when Ben Roethlisberger is on the field.


Round 4

4.01: Odell Beckham Jr., CLE WR
4.02: Chris Carson, SEA RB
4.03: Mark Andrews, BAL TE
4.04: David Johnson, HOU RB
4.05: Jonathan Taylor, IND RB
4.06: Melvin Gordon, DEN RB
4.07: Le’Veon Bell, NYJ RB
4.08: Cooper Kupp, LAR WR
4.09: D.J. Chark, JAX WR
4.10: Calvin Ridley, ATL WR
4.11: Terry McLaurin, WAS WR
4.12: Keenan Allen, LAC WR


Thoughts: I nearly went with Calvin Ridley to team up with Julio, but Chris Carson was a consideration for my previous pick, and having three bruisers should give the roster a solid floor at running back.


Round 5

5.01: Zach Ertz, PHI TE
5.02: Tyler Lockett, SEA WR
5.03: Courtland Sutton, DEN WR
5.04: D.K. Metcalf, SEA WR
5.05: David Montgomery, CHI RB
5.06: Devin Singletary, BUF RB
5.07: T.Y. Hilton, IND WR
5.08: DeVante Parker, MIA WR
5.09: D’Andre Swift, DET RB
5.10: Cam Akers, LAR RB
5.11: Darren Waller, LV RB
5.12: Mark Ingram, BAL RB


Thoughts: The value of Darren Waller here felt better than everyone else on the board, and I now have a big chunk of Jon Gruden’s offense with Henry Ruggs III hopefully opening things up for everyone.


Round 6

6.01: Dak Prescott, DAL QB
6.02: Kyler Murray, ARI QB
6.03: Stefon Diggs, BUF WR
6.04: Deshaun Watson, HOU QB
6.05: Hunter Henry, LAC TE
6.06: A.J. Green, CIN WR
6.07: Russell Wilson, SEA QB
6.08: Evan Engram, NYG TE
6.09: Tom Brady, TB QB
6.10: Raheem Mostert, SF RB
6.11: Marquise Brown, BAL WR
6.12: Tyler Boyd, CIN WR


Thoughts: I was hoping Dak Prescott would fall, but I felt a quarterback run coming and wanted one of Kyler Murray, Russell Wilson, or Deshaun Watson; eight signal-callers ended up coming off the board before my next selection.


Round 7

7.01: Kareem Hunt, CLE RB
7.02: Josh Allen, BUF QB
7.03: Matt Ryan, ATL QB
7.04: CeeDee Lamb, DAL WR
7.05: Drew Brees, NO QB
7.06: Ronald Jones II, TB RB
7.07: Deebo Samuel, SF WR
7.08: Carson Wentz, PHI QB
7.09: Jarvis Landry, CLE WR
7.10: Matthew Stafford, DET QB
7.11: Michael Gallup, DAL WR
7.12: Julian Edelman, NE WR


Thoughts: CeeDee Lamb surprisingly going ahead of Michael Gallup allows the No. 2 wideout for Dallas to fall into my lap, which gives me a phenomenal starting lineup; I didn’t set out to get all the starters in my first seven picks, but that’s how the board fell.


Round 8

8.01: Will Fuller, HOU WR
8.02: Brandin Cooks, HOU WR
8.03: Marvin Jones, DET WR
8.04: Ke’Shawn Vaughn, TB RB
8.05: Matt Breida, SF RB
8.06: John Brown, BUF WR
8.07: Kerryon Johnson, DET RB
8.08: James White, NE RB
8.09: Darius Slayton, NYG WR
8.10: Derrius Guice, WAS RB
8.11: J.K. Dobbins, BAL RB
8.12: Damien Williams, KC RB


Thoughts: I’m now a bit angry about not selecting Deshaun Watson over Kyler Murray, but getting Brandin Cooks in the eighth round is a great value, as he’s a No. 1 receiver on an explosive offense.


Round 9

9.01: Tevin Coleman, SF RB
9.02: Diontae Johnson, PIT WR
9.03: Jordan Howard, MIA RB
9.04: N’Keal Harry, NE WR
9.05: Sony Michel, NE RB
9.06: Darrell Henderson, LAR RB
9.07: Christian Kirk, ARI WR
9.08: Tarik Cohen, CHI RB
9.09: Jamison Crowder, NYJ WR
9.10: Breshad Perriman, NYJ WR
9.11: Sterling Shepard, NYG WR
9.12: Emmanuel Sanders, NO WR


Thoughts: I believe Sterling Shepard is the last No. 1 wideout to come off the board after a couple of Jets were drafted, and the WR2 spot can be comfortably mixed-and-matched depending on matchups.


Round 10

10.01: Mike Williams, LAC WR
10.02: Henry Ruggs III, LV WR
10.03: Phillip Lindsay, DEN RB
10.04: Golden Tate, NYG WR
10.05: Latavius Murray, NO RB
10.06: Marlon Mack, IND RB
10.07: Zack Moss, BUF RB
10.08: Boston Scott, PHI RB
10.09: Tony Pollard, DAL RB
10.10: Anthony Miller, CHI WR
10.11: Alexander Mattison, MIN RB
10.12: Mecole Hardman, KC WR


Thoughts: This is admittedly early for Henry Ruggs III to come off the board (and I could have used another running back), but the double-digit rounds are when you can start to take a gamble or two, and the roster is balanced enough that I can risk adding the rookie to my Las Vegas core.


Round 11

11.01: Duke Johnson, HOU RB
11.02: Jalen Reagor, PHI WR
11.03: 49ers, SF D/ST
11.04: Rob Gronkowski, TB TE
11.05: Robby Anderson, CAR WR
11.06: Preston Williams, MIA WR
11.07: Jerry Jeudy, DEN WR
11.08: Justin Jefferson, MIN WR
11.09: Curtis Samuel, CAR WR
11.10: DeSean Jackson, PHI WR
11.11: Aaron Rodgers, GB QB
11.12: Tyler Higbee, LAR TE


Thoughts: Quarterback and tight end looked like the clear best values on the board, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to add Aaron Rodgers as a backup plan if Kyler Murray doesn’t make a Year 2 leap.


Round 12

12.01: Steelers, PIT D/ST
12.02: Chase Edmonds, ARI RB
12.03: Cam Newton, NE QB
12.04: Anthony McFarland Jr., PIT RB
12.05: Daniel Jones, NYG QB
12.06: Alshon Jeffery, PHI WR
12.07: Darrynton Evans, TEN RB
12.08: Ryan Tannehill, TEN QB
12.09: Nyheim Hines, IND RB
12.10: Adrian Peterson, WAS RB
12.11: Ravens, BAL D/ST
12.12: Brandon Aiyuk, SF WR


Thoughts: Not drafting a running back since the fourth round has the depth options really lacking, but Chase Edmonds is a top handcuff that can hopefully have some standalone value in Kliff Kingsbury’s offense.


Round 13

13.01: Joshua Kelley, LAC RB
13.02: Antonio Gibson, WAS RB
13.03: Sammy Watkins, KC WR
13.04: Jared Cook, NO TE
13.05: Jamaal Williams, GB RB
13.06: Noah Fant, DEN TE
13.07: Austin Hooper, CLE TE
13.08: Damien Harris, NE RB
13.09: T.J. Hockenson, DET TE
13.10: Carlos Hyde, SEA RB
13.11: A.J. Dillon, GB RB
13.12: Rashaad Penny, SEA RB


Thoughts: Remember, you don’t need to handcuff your players (running backs on other teams have the same chance of getting injured), so A.J. Dillon rounds out the position as another upside pick behind Jacobs/Conner/Carson.


Round 14

14.01: Justin Jackson, LAC RB
14.02: Hayden Hurst, ATL TE
14.03: John Ross, CIN WR
14.04: Ryquell Armstead, JAX RB
14.05: Jonnu Smith, TEN TE
14.06: Justice Hill, BAL RB
14.07: Michael Pittman Jr., IND WR
14.08: Jack Doyle, IND TE
14.09: Giovani Bernard, CIN RB
14.10: Joe Burrow, CIN QB
14.11: Ben Roethlisberger, PIT QB
14.12: Patriots, NE D/ST


Thoughts: Multiple tight ends that I considered drafting earlier were still on the board, and Hayden Hurst should carry quality upside in a high-powered Atlanta offense.


Round 15

15.01: Mike Gesicki, MIA TE
15.02: Antonio Brown, FA WR
15.03: Chris Thompson, JAX RB
15.04: Bills, BUF D/ST
15.05: Saints, NO D/ST
15.06: Colts, IND D/ST
15.07: Justin Tucker, BAL K
15.08: Bears, CHI D/ST
15.09: Broncos, DEN D/ST
15.10: Rams, LAR D/ST
15.11: Chargers, LAC D/ST
15.12: Dallas Goedert, PHI TE


Round 16

16.01: Harrison Butker, KC K
16.02: Wil Lutz, NO K
16.03: Greg Zuerlein, LAR K
16.04: Matt Prater, DET K
16.05: Matt Gay, TB K
16.06: Vikings, MIN D/ST
16.07: Robbie Gould, SF K
16.08: Zane Gonzalez, ARI K
16.09: Jake Elliott, PHI K
16.10: Ka’imi Fairbairn, HOU K
16.11: Michael Badgley, LAC K
16.12: Mason Crosby, GB K
