Round 1

1.01: Christian McCaffrey, CAR RB

1.02: Dalvin Cook, MIN RB

1.03: Ezekiel Elliott, DAL RB

1.04: Derrick Henry, TEN RB

1.05: Alvin Kamara, NO RB

1.06: Jonathan Taylor, IND RB

1.07: Nick Chubb, CLE RB

1.08: Aaron Jones, GB RB

1.09: Saquon Barkley, NYG RB

1.10: Davante Adams, GB WR

1.11: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, KC RB

1.12: Austin Ekeler, LAC RB


Thoughts: A top running back would have ideally fallen to me, but that didn’t happen, so I instead took the best fantasy wideout in Adams. We could see a 20-touchdown season for what might be the last run with Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.


Round 2

2.01: Tyreek Hill, KC WR

2.02: Joe Mixon, CIN RB

2.03: Najee Harris, PIT RB

2.04: Stefon Diggs, BUF WR

2.05: Travis Kelce, KC TE

2.06: Antonio Gibson, WAS RB

2.07: DeAndre Hopkins, ARI WR

2.08: Calvin Ridley, ATL WR

2.09: Patrick Mahomes, KC QB

2.10: CeeDee Lamb, DAL WR

2.11: D.K. Metcalf, SEA WR

2.12: A.J. Brown, TEN WR


Thoughts: I was also considering the next three players picked in Diggs, Kelce, or Gibson, but Harris’ volume gave him the edge with a long wait until I’m back on the clock. And fortunately for anyone drafting this weekend before the preseason concludes, the rookie won’t play in the team’s final exhibition.


Round 3

3.01: Justin Jefferson, MIN WR

3.02: Darren Waller, LV TE

3.03: J.K. Dobbins, BAL RB

3.04: Terry McLaurin, WAS WR

3.05: Allen Robinson, CHI WR

3.06: David Montgomery, CHI RB

3.07: George Kittle, SF TE

3.08: Chris Carson, SEA RB

3.09: Josh Jacobs, LV RB

3.10: Keenan Allen, LAC WR

3.11: D’Andre Swift, DET RB

3.12: James Robinson, JAX RB


Thoughts: This pick was a tough one because I didn’t love any of the options on the board, but Allen is another high-floor target for the foundation of the roster. The 29-year-old has caught 97+ passes in each of the past four seasons.


Round 4

4.01: Robert Woods, LAR WR

4.02: Mike Evans, TB WR

4.03: Josh Allen, BUF QB

4.04: Chris Godwin, TB WR

4.05: Julio Jones, TEN WR

4.06: Amari Cooper, DAL WR

4.07: Cooper Kupp, LAR WR

4.08: D.J. Moore, CAR WR

4.09: Miles Sanders, PHI RB

4.10: Dak Prescott, DAL QB

4.11: Tyler Lockett, SEA WR

4.12: Darrell Henderson, LAR RB


Thoughts: I didn’t really want to triple-up at receiver this early, and Allen was certainly close enough to the best ones available to take over them. There arguably isn’t a player with more upside.


Round 5

5.01: Diontae Johnson, PIT WR

5.02: Tee Higgins, CIN WR

5.03: Adam Thielen, MIN WR

5.04: Kyle Pitts, ATL TE

5.05: Mike Davis, ATL RB

5.06: Kenny Golladay, NYG WR

5.07: Kyler Murray, ARI QB

5.08: Brandon Aiyuk, SF WR

5.09: Myles Gaskin, MIA RB

5.10: Damien Harris, NE RB

5.11: Mark Andrews, BAL TE

5.12: Odell Beckham Jr., CLE WR


Thoughts: New England won’t be a one-man show at running back, but Harris should still see more than enough work to return RB2 value as the lead guy. Success/opportunity on goal-line touches will be key.


Round 6

6.01: T.J. Hockenson, DET TE

6.02: Lamar Jackson, BAL QB

6.03: Kareem Hunt, CLE RB

6.04: Aaron Rodgers, GB QB

6.05: Michael Thomas, NO WR

6.06: Ja’Marr Chase, CIN WR

6.07: Noah Fant, DEN TE

6.08: Logan Thomas, WAS TE

6.09: Chase Claypool, PIT WR

6.10: Courtland Sutton, DEN WR

6.11: Chase Edmonds, ARI RB

6.12: Russell Wilson, SEA QB


Thoughts: Hunt is best drafted as a strong FLEX option, and if Nick Chubb ever misses time, his backfield mate would be viewed—despite struggling in the lead role last season—as a borderline RB1/RB2.


Round 7

7.01: Ronald Jones II, TB RB

7.02: Justin Herbert, LAC QB

7.03: D.J. Chark, JAX WR

7.04: Robby Anderson, CAR WR

7.05: Joe Burrow, CIN QB

7.06: Javonte Williams, DEN RB

7.07: JuJu Smith-Schuster, PIT WR

7.08: Tom Brady, TB QB

7.09: Jerry Jeudy, DEN WR

7.10: Melvin Gordon, DEN RB

7.11: Deebo Samuel, SF WR

7.12: Jalen Hurts, PHI QB


Thoughts: Denver is going to be a run-heavy team with Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback and the defense hoping to be one of the NFL’s top units, so Gordon should see plenty of work no matter what kind of role Javonte Williams has. RB4 in a 12-team league is tremendous value.


Round 8

8.01: Trey Sermon, SF RB

8.02: DeVonta Smith, PHI WR

8.03: Corey Davis, NYJ WR

8.04: Raheem Mostert, SF RB

8.05: Michael Carter, NYJ RB

8.06: Leonard Fournette, TB RB

8.07: Zack Moss, BUF RB

8.08: James Conner, ARI RB

8.09: Rams D/ST

8.10: Curtis Samuel, WAS WR

8.11: A.J. Dillon, GB RB

8.12: Antonio Brown, TB WR


Thoughts: Davis has been rising fast because of how much Zach Wilson has targeted him in preseason action, and he clearly has the rookie’s trust. Remember, New York signed the former No. 5 overall pick to a three-year, $37.5-million deal.


Round 9

9.01: Tyler Boyd, CIN WR

9.02: Gus Edwards, BAL RB

9.03: Brandin Cooks, HOU WR

9.04: David Johnson, HOU RB

9.05: Latavius Murray, NO RB

9.06: Will Fuller, MIA WR

9.07: Jarvis Landry, CLE WR

9.08: Laviska Shenault Jr., JAX WR

9.09: DeVante Parker, MIA WR

9.10: Mike Williams, LAC WR

9.11: Michael Pittman Jr., IND WR

9.12: Kenyan Drake, LV RB


Thoughts: The safeness of Corey Davis last round is complemented well by Williams’ pure upside, and overall, this feels like a very balanced roster so far. Now it’s just important to hit on whatever tight end I take.


Round 10

10.01: Michael Gallup, DAL WR

10.02: Jamaal Williams, DET RB

10.03: Jaylen Waddle, MIA WR

10.04: Mecole Hardman, KC WR

10.05: Devin Singletary, BUF RB

10.06: Steelers D/ST

10.07: Ryan Tannehill, TEN QB

10.08: Marvin Jones, JAX WR

10.09: Sony Michel, LAR RB

10.10: Tyler Higbee, LAR TE

10.11: Henry Ruggs III, LV WR

10.12: Darnell Mooney, CHI WR


Thoughts: Waddle was still on the board after considering him in Round 9, so I’ll gladly take another pass-catcher with a massive weekly ceiling. It didn’t happen in this mock, but I’d suspect Waddle will be drafted as the top Miami wideout in most leagues.


Round 11

11.01: Giovani Bernard, TB RB

11.02: Tony Pollard, DAL RB

11.03: Nyheim Hines, IND RB

11.04: Randall Cobb, GB WR

11.05: Phillip Lindsay, HOU RB

11.06: Matthew Stafford, LAR QB

11.07: Alexander Mattison, MIN RB

11.08: Washington D/ST

11.09: Mike Gesicki, MIA TE

11.10: Marquez Callaway, NO WR

11.11: Marquise Brown, BAL WR

11.12: J.D. McKissic, WAS RB


Thoughts: The run on wide receivers for my squad continues with Callaway—who has earned a significant role whether or not Michael Thomas (ankle) is back to being himself when he returns.


Round 12

12.01: Matt Ryan, ATL QB

12.02: Tua Tagovailoa, MIA QB

12.03: Robert Tonyan, GB TE

12.04: Dallas Goedert, PHI TE

12.05: Elijah Moore, NYJ WR

12.06: Cole Beasley, BUF WR

12.07: Rashaad Penny, SEA RB

12.08: Trevor Lawrence, JAX QB

12.09: Mark Ingram, HOU RB

12.10: James White, NE RB

12.11: Trey Lance, SF QB

12.12: Rob Gronkowski, TB TE


Thoughts: Tonyan has very high touchdown potential in the Green Bay offense, so I’m pairing him with Davante Adams to get a big chunk of the passing production to complete my starting lineup.


Round 13

13.01: Irv Smith Jr., MIN TE

13.02: Rondale Moore, ARI WR

13.03: Jonnu Smith, NE TE

13.04: A.J. Green, ARI WR

13.05: Cole Kmet, CHI TE

13.06: Nelson Agholor, NE WR

13.07: Tevin Coleman, NYJ RB

13.08: Xavier Jones, LAR RB

13.09: Darrel Williams, KC RB

13.10: Rhamondre Stevenson, NE RB

13.11: Marlon Mack, IND RB

13.12: Carlos Hyde, JAX RB


Thoughts: The Patriots could have four backs that get work this year, but Stevenson is clearly the “handcuff” for Damien Harris and would be a threat for double-digit touchdowns if anything were to happen to the starter.


Round 14

14.01: Buccaneers D/ST

14.02: Ravens D/ST

14.03: Marquez Valdes-Scantling, GB WR

14.04: Zach Wilson, NYJ QB

14.05: Baker Mayfield, CLE QB

14.06: Justin Fields, CHI QB

14.07: Evan Engram, NYG TE

14.08: Jakobi Meyers, NE WR

14.09: Zach Ertz, PHI TE

14.10: Tarik Cohen, CHI RB

14.11: Damien Williams, CHI RB

14.12: Malcolm Brown, MIA RB


Thoughts: Not seeing the Green Bay starters in the preseason has seemed to keep some of their ADPs down, but Valdes-Scantling quietly sounds ready for a monster jump. Now part of me wishes I skipped on Josh Allen and waited a couple of rounds for Aaron Rodgers.


Round 15

15.01: 49ers D/ST

15.02: Browns D/ST

15.03: Colts D/ST

15.04: Todd Gurley, FA RB

15.05: Justin Tucker, BAL K

15.06: Harrison Butker, KC K

15.07: T.Y. Hilton, IND WR

15.08: Russell Gage, ATL WR

15.09: Patriots D/ST

15.10: Bills D/ST

15.11: Jalen Reagor, PHI WR

15.12: Gabriel Davis, BUF WR


Round 16

16.01: Greg Zuerlein, DAL K

16.02: Jason Sanders, MIA K

16.03: Younghoe Koo, ATL K

16.04: Ryan Succop, TB K

16.05: Matt Prater, ARI K

16.06: Tyler Bass, BUF K

16.07: Chiefs D/ST

16.08: Saints D/ST

16.09: Wil Lutz, NO K

16.10: Rodrigo Blankenship, IND K

16.11: Jason Myers, SEA K

16.12: Robbie Gould, SF K
