2021 Fantasy Football Mock Draft 3.0: 14-Team, 0.5 PPR


This week’s mock draft is for a 14-team, 0.5 PPR league using the FantasyPros draft simulator.

 

Round 1

1.01: Christian McCaffrey, CAR RB

1.02: Dalvin Cook, MIN RB

1.03: Derrick Henry, TEN RB

1.04: Saquon Barkley, NYG RB

1.05: Nick Chubb, CLE RB

1.06: Alvin Kamara, NO RB

1.07: Jonathan Taylor, IND RB

1.08: Tyreek Hill, KC WR

1.09: Ezekiel Elliott, DAL RB

1.10: Davante Adams, GB WR

1.11: Austin Ekeler, LAC RB

1.12: Aaron Jones, GB RB

1.13: D’Andre Swift, DET RB

1.14: Joe Mixon, CIN RB

 

Thoughts: Running backs are going to come off the board very quickly in a 14-team league, but the turnaround allows me to potentially double up at the position. Mixon will hopefully be unleashed for a full season on an offense with plenty of weapons to keep opponents honest.

 

Round 2

2.01: Najee Harris, PIT RB

2.02: Stefon Diggs, BUF WR

2.03: DeAndre Hopkins, ARI WR

2.04: Calvin Ridley, ATL WR

2.05: Cam Akers, LAR RB

2.06: Antonio Gibson, WAS RB

2.07: D.K. Metcalf, SEA WR

2.08: Travis Kelce, KC TE

2.09: Justin Jefferson, MIN WR

2.10: A.J. Brown, TEN WR

2.11: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, KC RB

2.12: Michael Thomas, NO WR

2.13: George Kittle, SF TE

2.14: Keenan Allen, LAC WR

 

Thoughts: It was difficult to pass on Travis Kelce and Stefon Diggs, but again, I want to be strong at running back with 26 spots between picks in such a big league. Harris should be featured as both a runner and receiver in Year 1.

 

Round 3

3.01: Chris Carson, SEA RB

3.02: J.K. Dobbins, BAL RB

3.03: Allen Robinson, CHI WR

3.04: Patrick Mahomes, KC QB

3.05: Julio Jones, TEN WR

3.06: Darren Waller, LV TE

3.07: Terry McLaurin, WAS WR

3.08: Robert Woods, LAR WR

3.09: CeeDee Lamb, DAL WR

3.10: T.J. Hockenson, DET TE

3.11: Mike Evans, TB WR

3.12: Lamar Jackson, BAL QB

3.13: Mike Davis, ATL RB

3.14: D.J. Moore, CAR WR

 

Thoughts: I was hoping one of the targets that went earlier in Round 3 would have slipped, but Moore carries plenty of upside if he can cash in on more touchdowns with Sam Darnold at quarterback.

 

Round 4

4.01: Josh Allen, BUF QB

4.02: Amari Cooper, DAL WR

4.03: Miles Sanders, PHI RB

4.04: Chris Godwin, TB WR

4.05: David Montgomery, CHI RB

4.06: Brandon Aiyuk, SF WR

4.07: Josh Jacobs, LV RB

4.08: Adam Thielen, MIN WR

4.09: Kenny Golladay, NYG WR

4.10: Dak Prescott, DAL QB

4.11: Cooper Kupp, LAR WR

4.12: Diontae Johnson, PIT WR

4.13: Odell Beckham Jr., CLE WR

4.14: Tyler Lockett, SEA WR

 

Thoughts: Waiting on quarterback was my original plan, but Allen being on the board still—after going behind Lamar Jackson—gives me a high-end, matchup-proof QB1.

 

Round 5

5.01: Myles Gaskin, MIA RB

5.02: Tee Higgins, CIN WR

5.03: Kareem Hunt, CLE RB

5.04: Kyle Pitts, ATL TE

5.05: Ja’Marr Chase, CIN WR

5.06: Javonte Williams, DEN RB

5.07: Travis Etienne, JAX RB

5.08: Mark Andrews, BAL TE

5.09: Russell Wilson, SEA QB

5.10: Chase Claypool, PIT WR

5.11: Chase Edmonds, ARI RB

5.12: Courtland Sutton, DEN WR

5.13: Brandin Cooks, HOU WR

5.14: James Robinson, JAX RB

 

Thoughts: Perhaps the selection of Travis Etienne knocks Robinson down from RB2 range, but as my FLEX in a 14-team league? I’d say that’s a very strong foundation, and Jacksonville is going to run the ball.

 

Round 6

6.01: Raheem Mostert, SF RB

6.02: Dallas Goedert, PHI TE

6.03: Kenyan Drake, LV RB

6.04: Kyler Murray, ARI QB

6.05: Melvin Gordon, DEN RB

6.06: DeVonta Smith, PHI WR

6.07: Ronald Jones II, TB RB

6.08: D.J. Chark, JAX WR

6.09: JuJu Smith-Schuster, PIT WR

6.10: Leonard Fournette, TB RB

6.11: Curtis Samuel, WAS WR

6.12: Justin Herbert, LAC QB

6.13: Will Fuller, MIA WR

6.14: Robert Tonyan, GB TE

 

Thoughts: Running back is surprisingly where the top values remain, and Mostert’s big-play upside makes him a tremendous RB4 option—or even a potential trade piece for a desperate team.

 

Round 7

7.01: Deebo Samuel, SF WR

7.02: Aaron Rodgers, GB QB

7.03: Robby Anderson, CAR WR

7.04: Tyler Boyd, CIN WR

7.05: Jerry Jeudy, DEN WR

7.06: Matthew Stafford, LAR QB

7.07: Jalen Hurts, PHI QB

7.08: Joe Burrow, CIN QB

7.09: Antonio Brown, TB WR

7.10: Ryan Tannehill, TEN QB

7.11: Damien Harris, NE RB

7.12: David Johnson, HOU RB

7.13: James Conner, ARI RB

7.14: Noah Fant, DEN TE

 

Thoughts: I would have given serious thought to another running back if Damien Harris or David Johnson was available here, but they aren’t so I’ll take Fant at tight end. A big season could be on the horizon for the former first-round pick after producing while banged up in 2020.

 

Round 8

8.01: Jarvis Landry, CLE WR

8.02: Nyheim Hines, IND WR

8.03: DeVante Parker, MIA WR

8.04: Michael Carter, NYJ RB

8.05: Laviska Shenault Jr., JAX WR

8.06: Trey Sermon, SF RB

8.07: Gus Edwards, BAL RB

8.08: Zack Moss, BUF RB

8.09: Devin Singletary, BUF RB

8.10: Jaylen Waddle, MIA WR

8.11: Tony Pollard, DAL RB

8.12: Corey Davis, NYJ WR

8.13: A.J. Dillon, GB RB

8.14: Marquise Brown, BAL WR

 

Thoughts: Landry was a very safe target to slide into the WR2 spot for now, but the hope is a couple of lottery tickets will pay off in the second half of the draft—as there is plenty of upside at receiver in the later rounds.

 

Round 9

9.01: Jamaal Williams, DET RB

9.02: Michael Gallup, DAL WR

9.03: Mike Williams, LAC WR

9.04: Michael Pittman Jr., IND WR

9.05: Marvin Jones, JAX WR

9.06: Tevin Coleman, NYJ RB

9.07: Latavius Murray, NO RB

9.08: Phillip Lindsay, HOU RB

9.09: A.J. Green, ARI WR

9.10: J.D. McKissic, WAS RB

9.11: Nelson Agholor, NE WR

9.12: Jamison Crowder, NYJ WR

9.13: Tom Brady, TB QB

9.14: Henry Ruggs III, LV WR

 

Thoughts: Ruggs should get a good opportunity to be the No. 1 wideout for Las Vegas, so the ceiling is high if he’s able to take advantage. As a rookie, Ruggs averaged 17.4 yards per reception.

 

Round 10

10.01: Cole Beasley, BUF WR

10.02: Rashod Bateman, BAL WR

10.03: Tarik Cohen, CHI RB

10.04: Russell Gage, ATL WR

10.05: Steelers D/ST

10.06: T.Y. Hilton, IND WR

10.07: Darrell Henderson, LAR RB

10.08: Darnell Mooney, CHI WR

10.09: Mecole Hardman, KC WR

10.10: John Brown, LV WR

10.11: Rashaad Penny, SEA RB

10.12: Jalen Reagor, PHI WR

10.13: James White, NE RB

10.14: Giovani Bernard, CIN RB

 

Thoughts: In hindsight, I wish I would have taken a receiver with more upside like Michael Gallup or Mike Williams over Jarvis Landry; but Beasley is still worth taking to pair with Josh Allen as another high-floor pass-catcher.

 

Round 11

11.01: Elijah Moore, NYJ WR

11.02: Sterling Shepard, NYG WR

11.03: Logan Thomas, WAS TE

11.04: Christian Kirk, ARI WR

11.05: Jonnu Smith, NE TE

11.06: Rhamondre Stevenson, NE RB

11.07: Alexander Mattison, MIN RB

11.08: Rams D/ST

11.09: Zach Ertz, PHI TE

11.10: Parris Campbell, IND WR

11.11: Irv Smith Jr., MIN TE

11.12: Le’Veon Bell, FA RB

11.13: Matt Ryan, ATL QB

11.14: Emmanuel Sanders, BUF WR

 

Thoughts: Sanders is being significantly undervalued at this point, as he can do a lot of the underneath stuff in Buffalo’s offense while also having the ability to get vertical.

 

Round 12

12.01: Mike Gesicki, MIA TE

12.02: Sony Michel, NE RB

12.03: Todd Gurley, FA RB

12.04: Evan Engram, NYG TE

12.05: Salvon Ahmed, MIA RB

12.06: Darrel Williams, KC RB

12.07: Denzel Mims, NYJ WR

12.08: Gabriel Davis, BUF WR

12.09: Trevor Lawrence, JAX QB

12.10: Kenneth Gainwell, PHI RB

12.11: Marlon Mack, IND RB

12.12: Ravens D/ST

12.13: Chuba Hubbard, CAR RB

12.14: Rob Gronkowski, TB TE

 

Thoughts: Gesicki was neck and neck with Noah Fant to be picked a few rounds earlier, so I’ll gladly take him here as the best player available. The 14-team league size could also make him a FLEX option.

 

Round 13

13.01: Colts D/ST

13.02: Kirk Cousins, MIN QB

13.03: Mark Ingram, HOU RB

13.04: Breshad Perriman, DET WR

13.05: Ke’Shawn Vaughn, TB RB

13.06: Sammy Watkins, BAL WR

13.07: Baker Mayfield, CLE QB

13.08: Carson Wentz, IND QB

13.09: Jared Cook, LAC TE

13.10: Tua Tagovailoa, MIA QB

13.11: Washington D/ST

13.12: Cole Kmet, CHI TE

13.13: Tre’Quan Smith, NO WR

13.14: DeSean Jackson, LAR WR

 

Thoughts: My three hopeful targets at wide receiver—Perriman, Watkins, and Smith—all went before my pick, but Jackson will be a deadly deep threat catching passes from Matthew Stafford for as long as he’s healthy (which admittedly might not be long).

 

Round 14

14.01: Jeff Wilson, SF RB

14.02: Tyler Higbee, LAR TE

14.03: Hunter Henry, NE TE

14.04: Jordan Howard, PHI RB

14.05: Darius Slayton, NYG WR

14.06: Malcolm Brown, MIA RB

14.07: Joshua Kelley, LAC RB

14.08: Benny Snell, PIT RB

14.09: Qadree Ollison, ATL RB

14.10: Matt Breida, BUF RB

14.11: Blake Jarwin, DAL TE

14.12: Carlos Hyde, JAX RB

14.13: Rondale Moore, ARI WR

14.14: Taysom Hill, NO QB

 

Thoughts: Wilson is a risky pick coming off a torn meniscus, but I’ll quickly be able to put him on IR to stash for another potential late-season emergence in Kyle Shanahan’s offense.

 

Round 15

15.01: Ryan Fitzpatrick, WAS QB

15.02: Justin Tucker, BAL K

15.03: Darrynton Evans, TEN RB

15.04: 49ers D/ST

15.05: Buccaneers D/ST

15.06: Harrison Butker, KC K

15.07: Younghoe Koo, ATL K

15.08: Austin Hooper, CLE TE

15.09: Chargers D/ST

15.10: Boston Scott, PHI RB

15.11: Jameis Winston, NO QB

15.12: Patriots D/ST

15.13: Bills D/ST

15.14: Dolphins D/ST

 

Round 16

16.01: Tyler Bass, BUF K

16.02: Greg Zuerlein, DAL K

16.03: Wil Lutz, NO K

16.04: Jason Sanders, MIA K

16.06: Matt Prater, ARI K

16.07: Robbie Gould, SF K

16.08: Saints D/ST

16.09: Chiefs D/ST

16.10: Zane Gonzalez, FA K

16.11: Jason Myers, SEA K

16.12: Ryan Succop, TB K

16.13: Bears D/ST

16.14: Ka’imi Fairbairn, HOU K
