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: Dalvin Cook, MIN RB
1.06: Joe Mixon, CIN RB
1.07: Michael Thomas, NO WR
1.08: Derrick Henry, TEN RB
1.09: Miles Sanders, PHI RB
1.10: Davante Adams, GB WR
1.11: Tyreek Hill, KC WR
1.12: Julio Jones, ATL WR


Thoughts: Henry will be an absolute workhorse this year, and anyone with a late pick should be thrilled with him falling outside the top-six picks.


Round 2

2.01: DeAndre Hopkins, ARI WR
2.02: Nick Chubb, CLE RB
2.03: Kenyan Drake, ARI RB
2.04: Austin Ekeler, LAC RB
2.05: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, KC RB
2.06: Chris Godwin, TB WR
2.07: Allen Robinson, CHI WR
2.08: Josh Jacobs, LV RB
2.09: Patrick Mahomes, KC QB
2.10: Travis Kelce, KC TE
2.11: Lamar Jackson, BAL QB
2.12: Kenny Golladay, DET WR


Thoughts: I don’t see any chance in the world that Edwards-Helaire will last until the No. 17 overall pick in actual drafts, but this is a good time to let people know that you need to be flexible and not have your mind set on a particular player because it’s impossible to know how a draft will play out.


Round 3

3.01: George Kittle, SF TE
3.02: Aaron Jones, GB RB
3.03: Adam Thielen, MIN WR
3.04: Mike Evans, TB WR
3.05: Amari Cooper, DAL WR
3.06: Calvin Ridley, ATL WR
3.07: Odell Beckham Jr., CLE WR
3.08: Todd Gurley, ATL RB
3.09: JuJu Smith-Schuster, PIT WR
3.10: Chris Carson, SEA RB
3.11: D.J. Moore, CAR WR
3.12: Leonard Fournette, TB RB


Thoughts: Tripling down at running back wasn’t the plan, but I arguably have three top-15 options in a 12-team league where the position could quickly thin out.


Round 4

4.01: Mark Andrews, BAL TE
4.02: A.J. Brown, TEN WR
4.03: Cooper Kupp, LAR WR
4.04: Robert Woods, LAR WR
4.05: D.J. Chark, JAX WR
4.06: Zach Ertz, PHI TE
4.07: Jonathan Taylor, IND RB
4.08: James Conner, PIT RB
4.09: Melvin Gordon, DEN RB
4.10: Raheem Mostert, SF RB
4.11: Terry McLaurin, WAS WR
4.12: Tyler Lockett, SEA WR


Thoughts: Quietly a WR1 last year, there is hope Chark can be just as good—or even better—as the top offensive option for a Jaguars team that will need to throw.


Round 5

5.01: D.K. Metcalf, SEA WR
5.02: Courtland Sutton, DEN WR
5.03: T.Y. Hilton, IND WR
5.04: Mark Ingram, BAL RB
5.05: Dak Prescott, DAL QB
5.06: DeVante Parker, MIA WR
5.07: Le’Veon Bell, NYJ RB
5.08: Keenan Allen, LAC WR
5.09: David Johnson, HOU RB
5.10: Russell Wilson, SEA QB
5.11: Darren Waller, LV TE
5.12: Stefon Diggs, BUF WR


Thoughts: Pairing D.J. Chark with Allen is something I did in another mock, and I love the combination of floor and upside to support my running backs.


Round 6

6.01: Devin Singletary, BUF RB
6.02: Kyler Murray, ARI QB
6.03: A.J. Green, CIN WR
6.04: Evan Engram, NYG TE
6.05: Marquise Brown, BAL WR
6.06: David Montgomery, CHI RB
6.07: Deshaun Watson, HOU QB
6.08: Michael Gallup, DAL WR
6.09: Tyler Higbee, LAR TE
6.10: Cam Akers, LAR RB
6.11: Tyler Boyd, CIN WR
6.12: Matt Ryan, ATL QB


Thoughts: I considered taking Deshaun Watson here, but “Hollywood” is another No. 1 wideout that balances out my roster at the two most important positions.


Round 7

7.01: D’Andre Swift, DET RB
7.02: Jarvis Landry, CLE WR
7.03: Drew Brees, NO QB
7.04: Deebo Samuel, SF WR
7.05: Kareem Hunt, CLE RB
7.06: Jordan Howard, MIA RB
7.07: Josh Allen, BUF QB
7.08: Ronald Jones II, TB RB
7.09: Carson Wentz, PHI QB
7.10: Julian Edelman, NE WR
7.11: Sony Michel, NE RB
7.12: Aaron Rodgers, GB QB


Thoughts: The Leonard Fournette signing obviously hurt, but I’ll take Jones II all day as my RB4, as he can still be a stud if he holds onto the lead role with a hot start.


Round 8

8.01: James White, NE RB
8.02: Matt Breida, MIA RB
8.03: Will Fuller, HOU WR
8.04: Marvin Jones, DET WR
8.05: Antonio Gibson, WAS RB
8.06: Phillip Lindsay, DEN RB
8.07: Diontae Johnson, PIT WR
8.08: Brandin Cooks, HOU WR
8.09: 49ers, SF D/ST
8.10: Sterling Shepard, NYG WR
8.11: CeeDee Lamb, DAL WR
8.12: Tarik Cohen, CHI RB


Thoughts: Gibson is definitely a risk running behind a sub-par offensive line with just 33 career carries at Memphis, but the middle rounds is when you can take a big swing.


Round 9

9.01: Marlon Mack, IND RB
9.02: J.K. Dobbins, BAL RB
9.03: Jamison Crowder, NYJ
9.04: John Brown, BUF WR
9.05: Christian Kirk, ARI WR
9.06: Henry Ruggs III, LV WR
9.07: Kerryon Johnson, DET RB
9.08: Anthony Miller, CHI WR
9.09: Preston Williams, MIA WR
9.10: Darius Slayton, NYG WR
9.11: Steelers, PIT D/ST
9.12: Ke’Shawn Vaughn, TB RB


Thoughts: Miller got hot down the stretch in 2019, and there is a chance he can carry it into his third season after recently being talked up by Matt Nagy; Miller is the clear No. 2 behind Allen Robinson.


Round 10

10.01: Darrell Henderson, LAR RB
10.02: Tevin Coleman, SF RB
10.03: Jerry Jeudy, DEN WR
10.04: Latavius Murray, NO RB
10.05: Hayden Hurst, ATL TE
10.06: Duke Johnson, HOU RB
10.07: Robby Anderson, CAR WR
10.08: Zack Moss, BUF RB
10.09: Emmanuel Sanders, NO WR
10.10: Ravens, BAL D/ST
10.11: Derrius Guice, FA RB
10.12: Mike Williams, LAC WR


Thoughts: Hurst is a relatively safe pick at tight end as he takes over the role that led to a midrange TE1 finish for Austin Hooper in 2019—and the former first-round pick arguably has even more upside.


Round 11

11.01: Alexander Mattison, MIN RB
11.02: Hunter Henry, LAC TE
11.03: Chase Edmonds, ARI RB
11.04: Adrian Peterson, WAS RB
11.05: Tony Pollard, DAL RB
11.06: DeSean Jackson, PHI WR
11.07: Justin Jefferson, MIN WR
11.08: Tom Brady, TB QB
11.09: Mecole Hardman, KC WR
11.10: Jalen Reagor, PHI WR
11.11: Boston Scott, PHI RB
11.12: Alshon Jeffery, PHI WR


Thoughts: I was going to wait until the final round to take a quarterback and keep stocking up on the skill positions, but Brady is too good of a value to pass up due to his upside in Bruce Arians’ offense.


Round 12

12.01: Matthew Stafford, DET QB
12.02: Sammy Watkins, KC WR
12.03: Golden Tate, NYG WR
12.04: Baker Mayfield, CLE QB
12.05: Ryquell Armstead, JAX RB
12.06: Bills, BUF D/ST
12.07: Michael Pittman Jr., IND WR
12.08: Curtis Samuel, CAR WR
12.09: Larry Fitzgerald, ARI WR
12.10: Hunter Renfrow, LV WR
12.11: Jared Cook, NO TE
12.12: N’Keal Harry, NE WR


Thoughts: Armstead carries risk after missing a chunk of training camp, but his physicality could allow him to eventually seize the early-down job ahead of Devine Ozigbo and James Robinson.


Round 13

13.01: Ben Roethlisberger, PIT QB
13.02: Bears, CHI D/ST
13.03: Damien Harris, NE RB
13.04: LeSean McCoy, TB RB
13.05: Mike Gesicki, MIA TE
13.06: Jonnu Smith, TEN TE
13.07: Nyheim Hines, IND RB
13.08: Brandon Aiyuk, SF WR
13.09: Justin Jackson, LAC RB
13.10: Rob Gronkowski, TB TE
13.11: Joe Burrow, CIN QB
13.12: A.J. Dillon, GB RB


Thoughts: Aiyuk is another player that could be a burnt pick if he doesn’t transition quickly coming off a hamstring injury, but the upside is big as San Francisco’s new perimeter receiver.


Round 14

14.01: Breshad Perriman, NYJ WR
14.02: Darrel Williams, KC RB
14.03: Jamaal Williams, GB RB
14.04: T.J. Hockenson, DET TE
14.05: Chris Thompson, JAX RB
14.06: Daniel Jones, NYG QB
14.07: Jerick McKinnon, SF RB
14.08: Austin Hooper, CLE TE
14.09: Noah Fant, DEN TE
14.10: Cam Newton, NE QB
14.11: Carlos Hyde, SEA RB
14.12: Chiefs, KC D/ST


Thoughts: I don’t feel great about having three players from the Jacksonville offense, but Thompson can be a quality FLEX as a familiar pass-catching option in Jay Gruden’s offense.


Round 15

15.01: Joshua Kelley, LAC RB
15.02: Devonta Freeman, FA RB
15.03: Devine Ozigbo, JAX RB
15.04: Allen Lazard, GB WR
15.05: Harrison Butker, KC K
15.06: Patriots, NE D/ST
15.07: Rashaad Penny, SEA RB
15.08: Rams, LAR D/ST
15.09: Saints, NO D/ST
15.10: Justin Tucker, BAL K
15.11: Dede Westbrook, JAX WR
15.12: Justin Rohrwasser, NE K


Round 16

16.01: Vikings, MIN D/ST
16.02: Wil Lutz, NO K
16.03: Packers, GB D/ST
16.04: Greg Zuerlein, DAL K
16.05: Robbie Gould, SF K
16.06: Matt Gay, FA K
16.07: Matt Prater, DET K
16.08: Broncos, DEN D/ST
16.09: Michael Badgley, LAC K
16.10: Jake Elliott, PHI K
16.11: Zane Gonzalez, ARI K
16.12: Ka’imi Fairbairn, HOU K
