2021 Fantasy Football Mock Draft 4.0: 10-Team, Non-PPR

This week’s mock draft is for a 10-team, non-PPR league using the FantasyPros draft simulator. You can check out previous weeks using the links below:


Mock 1.0: 12-team, 0.5 PPR

Mock 2.0: 12-team, Superflex PPR

Mock 3.0: 14-team, 0.5 PPR


Round 1

1.01: Christian McCaffrey, CAR RB

1.02: Dalvin Cook, MIN RB

1.03: Saquon Barkley, NYG RB

1.04: Derrick Henry, TEN RB

1.05: Alvin Kamara, NO RB

1.06: Tyreek Hill, KC WR

1.07: Nick Chubb, CLE RB

1.08: Jonathan Taylor, IND RB

1.09: Ezekiel Elliott, DAL RB

1.10: Aaron Jones, GB RB


Thoughts: Especially in a non-PPR league, I didn’t even have a decision to make with Henry still on the board. The NFL adding another week to the schedule will only give him an extra opportunity to dominate in the winter.


Round 2

2.01: DeAndre Hopkins, ARI WR

2.02: Davante Adams, GB WR

2.03: Cam Akers, LAR RB

2.04: Antonio Gibson, WAS RB

2.05: D.K. Metcalf, SEA WR

2.06: Stefon Diggs, BUF WR

2.07: Joe Mixon, CIN RB

2.08: Najee Harris, PIT RB

2.09: Calvin Ridley, ATL WR

2.10: Travis Kelce, KC TE


Thoughts: A 0.5 PPR or full PPR format would have made this a more difficult choice, but Mixon gets the edge over some others as the feature back in an emerging offense. Prior to last year, Mixon missed just four games in three seasons.


Round 3

3.01: Austin Ekeler, LAC RB

3.02: George Kittle, SF TE

3.03: A.J. Brown, TEN WR

3.04: Patrick Mahomes, KC QB

3.05: Justin Jefferson, MIN WR

3.06: Kyle Pitts, ATL TE

3.07: J.K. Dobbins, BAL RB

3.08: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, KC RB

3.09: Darren Waller, LV TE

3.10: Michael Thomas, NO WR


Thoughts: Mahomes is a player that gives you a huge advantage almost every week regardless of format, and I’m now very strong at both quarterback and two running back spots.


Round 4

4.01: D’Andre Swift, DET RB

4.02: Terry McLaurin, WAS WR

4.03: Mike Evans, TB WR

4.04: Chris Godwin, TB WR

4.05: Javonte Williams, DEN RB

4.06: Chris Carson, SEA RB

4.07: Allen Robinson, CHI WR

4.08: Keenan Allen, LAC WR

4.09: D.J. Moore, CAR WR

4.10: Amari Cooper, DAL WR


Thoughts: There are a few different wideouts still left on the board that I feel good about, but Robinson has the best chance of being a WR1 option whether it’s Andy Dalton or Justin Fields under center.


Round 5

5.01: CeeDee Lamb, DAL WR

5.02: Josh Jacobs, LV RB

5.03: Miles Sanders, PHI RB

5.04: David Montgomery, CHI RB

5.05: Myles Gaskin, MIA RB

5.06: Lamar Jackson, BAL QB

5.07: Kenny Golladay, DET WR

5.08: Robert Woods, LAR WR

5.09: Kareem Hunt, CLE RB

5.10: Mike Davis, ATL RB


Thoughts: Montgomery’s stock seems to be increasing with talk of him being a 20-touch back this season, and he earned it with his play down the stretch in 2020. Tarik Cohen (knee) not being 100% alleviates concerns about him and Damien Williams combining to take away too many opportunities.


Round 6

6.01: Kyler Murray, ARI QB

6.02: Julio Jones, TEN WR

6.03: Josh Allen, BUF QB

6.04: T.J. Hockenson, DET TE

6.05: Travis Etienne, JAX RB

6.06: Mark Andrews, BAL TE

6.07: Adam Thielen, MIN WR

6.08: Dak Prescott, DAL QB

6.09: Brandon Aiyuk, SF WR

6.10: Cooper Kupp, LAR WR


Thoughts: Thielen reaching double-digit touchdowns again after 14 scores last year would make him an excellent WR2 option. My starting lineup looks to be in great shape assuming I hit on whoever the choice is at tight end.


Round 7

7.01: Russell Wilson, SEA QB

7.02: Justin Herbert, LAC QB

7.03: Odell Beckham Jr., CLE WR

7.04: Tee Higgins, CIN WR

7.05: Aaron Rodgers, GB QB

7.06: Trey Sermon, SF RB

7.07: Jalen Hurts, PHI QB

7.08: Ja’Marr Chase, CIN WR

7.09: Tom Brady, TB QB

7.10: Damien Harris, NE RB


Thoughts: The choice between Higgins, Ja’Marr Chase, or one of the Pittsburgh wideouts was very close, but we’ll go with the former Clemson standout after he put up a 67/908/6 line with various quarterbacks under center in Year 1.


Round 8

8.01: Tyler Lockett, SEA WR

8.02: Raheem Mostert, SF RB

8.03: Melvin Gordon, DEN RB

8.04: D.J. Chark, JAX WR

8.05: James Robinson, JAX RB

8.06: Courtland Sutton, DEN WR

8.07: Chase Claypool, PIT WR

8.08: Ronald Jones II, TB RB

8.09: Chase Edmonds, ARI RB

8.10: Michael Carter, NYJ RB


Thoughts: It turns out all the wide receivers for the Steelers are still on the board, and I’ll go with Claypool because he likely has the highest touchdown upside.


Round 9

9.01: Diontae Johnson, PIT WR

9.02: Zack Moss, BUF RB

9.03: Deebo Samuel, SF WR

9.04: David Johnson, HOU RB

9.05: James Conner, ARI RB

9.06: Jaylen Waddle, MIA WR

9.07: Will Fuller, MIA WR

9.08: Jerry Jeudy, DEN WR

9.09: Leonard Fournette, TB RB

9.10: DeVonta Smith, PHI WR


Thoughts: The Texans are going to try to run the ball to be competitive, and Johnson should be the lead back over Mark Ingram and Phillip Lindsay. To end last season, DJ totaled 392 yards and three touchdowns over the final three weeks.


Round 10

10.01: Robby Anderson, CAR WR

10.02: Brandin Cooks, HOU WR

10.03: Curtis Samuel, WAS WR

10.04: A.J. Dillon, GB RB

10.05: Tevin Coleman, NYJ RB

10.06: JuJu Smith-Schuster, PIT WR

10.07: Dallas Goedert, PHI TE

10.08: Laviska Shenault Jr., JAX WR

10.09: Marquise Brown, BAL WR

10.10: Gus Edwards, BAL RB


Thoughts: There are three or four tight ends I’d like in this range, but even with the short turn, I don’t want to risk missing out on them if there is a run. Goedert will be the guy in Philly with Zach Ertz fully expected to be traded/released.


Round 11

11.01: Tony Pollard, DAL RB

11.02: Darrell Henderson, LAR RB

11.03: DeVante Parker, MIA WR

11.04: Jamaal Williams, DET RB

11.05: Kenyan Drake, LV RB

11.06: Antonio Brown, TB WR

11.07: Tyler Boyd, CIN WR

11.08: Mike Williams, LAC WR

11.09: Latavius Murray, NO RB

11.10: Michael Pittman Jr., IND WR


Thoughts: At worst, Williams should have a very stable change-of-pace role behind D’Andre Swift, and there is also a chance of a fairly even split. It’s worth noting that Detroit’s offensive line should be a major strength.


Round 12

12.01: Logan Thomas, WAS TE

12.02: Ryan Tannehill, TEN QB

12.03: Michael Gallup, DAL WR

12.04: Joe Burrow, CIN QB

12.05: Phillip Lindsay, HOU RB

12.06: Matthew Stafford, LAR QB

12.07: Marvin Jones, JAX WR

12.08: Noah Fant, DEN TE

12.09: Trevor Lawrence, JAX QB

12.10: Jarvis Landry, CLE WR


Thoughts: Jones could quickly become a security blanket for Trevor Lawrence, and he also carries impressive touchdown potential with exactly nine scores in three of the past four seasons (and he had five touchdowns in nine games the other year).


Round 13

13.01: Matt Ryan, ATL QB

13.02: Corey Davis, NYJ WR

13.03: Mike Gesicki, MIA TE

13.04: Robert Tonyan, GB TE

13.05: T.Y. Hilton, IND WR

13.06: Kirk Cousins, MIN QB

13.07: Devin Singletary, BUF RB

13.08: Tyler Higbee, LAR TE

13.09: Henry Ruggs III, LV WR

13.10: Anthony Firkser, TEN TE


Thoughts: I was going to take whoever was left out of Noah Fant, Mike Gesicki, and Tonyan as a second tight end to pair with Dallas Geodert, so I’m happy one of them was left on the board. My tight ends could realistically combine for 20 touchdowns.


Round 14

14.01: Nyheim Hines, IND RB

14.02: Alexander Mattison, MIN RB

14.03: Rashaad Penny, SEA RB

14.04: Tarik Cohen, CHI RB

14.05: Parris Campbell, IND WR

14.06: James White, NE RB

14.07: John Brown, LV WR

14.08: Sony Michel, NE RB

14.09: Salvon Ahmed, MIA RB

14.10: J.D. McKissic, WAS RB


Thoughts: Brown always seems to be a quality late-round selection, and his big-play potential is boosted some in a non-PPR league.


Round 15

15.01: Steelers D/ST

15.02: Rams D/ST

15.03: Ravens D/ST

15.04: Washington D/ST

15.05: Buccaneers, D/ST

15.06: Chargers, D/ST

15.07: Colts D/ST

15.08: 49ers D/ST

15.09: Justin Tucker, BAL K

15.10: Bills D/ST


Round 16

16.01: Harrison Butker, KC K

16.02: Saints D/ST

16.03: Younghoe Koo, ATL K

16.04: Wil Lutz, NO K

16.05: Matt Prater, ARI K

16.06: Greg Zuerlein, DAL K

16.07: Jason Sanders, MIA K

16.08: Rodrigo Blankenship, IND K

16.09: Tyler Bass, BUF K

16.10: Robbie Gould, SF K

    Super solid draft though I would have been tempted by Travis Kelce in the 2nd round. Starting with two top RB’s at the top of the draft is the way to go I believe though it’s not always exciting. Getting ARob and Thielen was a great combo and I like Tee Higgins this year and you got him late. Even your Defensd and Kicker combo is strong. I really like Wash this season. I would love your draft. However I pick 8th and both Henry and Mahomes will be off the board ( yes – a guy in our league will take Mahomes at 3!)
