2022 Fantasy Football Mock Draft 6.0: 10-Team, 0.5 PPR

Quite a bit has changed since the last mock with two weeks of training camp in the books, and things will continue to change as preseason action in underway. The previous mocks using the FantasyPros draft simulator can be viewed here.


Mock 1.0: 12-team, 0.5 PPR

Mock 2.0: 10-team, Full PPR

Mock 3.0: 10-team, Standard

Mock 4.0: 12-team, Superflex PPR

Mock 5.0: 12-Team, 0.5 PPR (3WR)


Round 1

1.01: Jonathan Taylor, IND RB

1.02: Christian McCaffrey, CAR RB

1.03: Austin Ekeler, LAC RB

1.04: Derrick Henry, TEN RB

1.05: Justin Jefferson, MIN WR

1.06: Saquon Barkley, NYG RB

1.07: Najee Harris, PIT RB

1.08: Cooper Kupp, LAR WR

1.09: Dalvin Cook, MIN RB

1.10: Ja’Marr Chase, CIN WR


Thoughts: The momentum has seemed to slant towards McCaffrey as a popular choice at No. 1 overall, but it’s tough to go against Taylor—who should get more opportunities as a receiver with Matt Ryan replacing Carson Wentz under center.


Round 2

2.01: Stefon Diggs, BUF WR

2.02: D’Andre Swift, DET RB

2.03: Davante Adams, LV WR

2.04: Travis Kelce, KC TE

2.05: Nick Chubb, CLE RB

2.06: CeeDee Lamb, DAL WR

2.07: Joe Mixon, CIN RB

2.08: James Conner, ARI RB

2.09: Aaron Jones, GB RB

2.10: Mike Evans, TB WR


Thoughts: Evans is the first of my back-to-back picks, and he has league-leading touchdown potential at wide receiver (similar to Jonathan Taylor at running back). I wouldn’t worry about a stacked receiving corps for the Bucs.


Round 3

3.01: Ezekiel Elliott, DAL RB

3.02: Alvin Kamara, NO RB

3.03: Leonard Fournette, TB RB

3.04: Josh Allen, BUF QB

3.05: Mark Andrews, BAL TE

3.06: Breece Hall, NYJ RB

3.07: Javonte Williams, DEN RB

3.08: Deebo Samuel, SF WR

3.09: Josh Jacobs, LV RB

3.10: Tyreek Hill, MIA WR


Thoughts: Another possible RB1 option falling to my next set of picks seems unlikely, so Elliott gets the nod here to pair with Taylor. The increasing talk of Tony Pollard playing the slot should only boost Zeke’s value.


Round 4

4.01: Kyle Pitts, ATL TE

4.02: Terry McLaurin, WAS WR

4.03: Cam Akers, LAR RB

4.04: Keenan Allen, LAC WR

4.05: A.J. Brown, PHI WR

4.06: Mike Williams, LAC WR

4.07: Michael Pittman Jr., IND WR

4.08: Courtland Sutton, DEN WR

4.09: Tee Higgins, CIN WR

4.10: DK Metcalf, SEA WR


Thoughts: Tee Higgins falling one more pick would have been nice, but Metcalf is far too undervalued at this point. It’s worth pointing out that Seattle’s top wideout is somehow going as the WR27 in Underdog drafts.


Round 5

5.01: Justin Herbert, LAC QB

5.02: D.J. Moore, CAR WR

5.03: Brandin Cooks, HOU WR

5.04: George Kittle, SF TE

5.05: Travis Etienne, JAX RB

5.06: Jaylen Waddle, MIA WR

5.07: Diontae Johnson, PIT WR

5.08: David Montgomery, CHI RB

5.09: Michael Thomas, NO WR

5.10: AJ Dillon, GB RB


Thoughts: It feels like a quarterback run is coming, so I went with Herbert to ensure myself of an elite option. The third-year passer is a good value in Round 5 as someone with a real shot to lead the league in fantasy points.


Round 6

6.01: Patrick Mahomes, KC QB

6.02: Joe Burrow, CIN QB

6.03: Darren Waller, LV TE

6.04: Amari Cooper, CLE WR

6.05: Lamar Jackson, BAL QB

6.06: Tom Brady, TB QB

6.07: Marquise Brown, ARI WR

6.08: Jalen Hurts, PHI QB

6.09: Kyler Murray, ARI QB

6.10: Allen Robinson, LAR WR


Thoughts: Robinson should probably come off the board well before the No. 60 overall pick, and my trio of wide receivers all have double-digit touchdown potential.


Round 7

7.01: Elijah Mitchell, SF RB

7.02: Miles Sanders, PHI RB

7.03: Devin Singletary, BUF RB

7.04: Chris Godwin, TB WR

7.05: Antonio Gibson, WAS RB

7.06: J.K. Dobbins, BAL RB

7.07: Russell Wilson, DEN QB

7.08: Dak Prescott, DAL QB

7.09: Ken Walker III, SEA RB

7.10: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, KC RB


Thoughts: Mitchell is the clear starter in San Francisco, so it’s a surprise that he isn’t more highly regarded. The concerns should be more about durability and play on the offensive line than workload.


Round 8

8.01: Kareem Hunt, CLE RB

8.02: Drake London, ATL WR

8.03: Rashaad Penny, SEA RB

8.04: Damien Harris, NE RB

8.05: Adam Thielen, MIN WR

8.06: Tony Pollard, DAL RB

8.07: Chase Edmonds, MIA RB

8.08: Rashod Bateman, BAL WR

8.09: DeVonta Smith, PHI WR

8.10: JuJu Smith-Schuster, KC WR


Thoughts: The situation for Smith-Schuster is pretty rare, as he is a high-floor player, but the upside is also massive as a potential top target for Patrick Mahomes in a high-powered offense.


Round 9

9.01: Dallas Goedert, PHI TE

9.02: Jerry Jeudy, DEN WR

9.03: Gabe Davis, BUF WR

9.04: Darnell Mooney, CHI WR

9.05: Melvin Gordon, DEN RB

9.06: Elijah Moore, NYJ WR

9.07: Brandon Aiyuk, SF WR

9.08: Cordarrelle Patterson, ATL RB

9.09: Robert Woods, TEN WR

9.10: James Cook, BUF RB


Thoughts: I’m in a similar spot as when I selected quarterback with Justin Herbert, as I want to be sure I’m able to get Goedert with a long run before my next set of picks.


Round 10

10.01: Rhamondre Stevenson, NE RB

10.02: Allen Lazard, GB WR

10.03: Ronald Jones II, KC RB

10.04: James Robinson, JAX RB

10.05: Tyler Lockett, SEA WR

10.06: Alexander Mattison, MIN RB

10.07: Isaiah Spiller, LAC RB

10.08: Amon-Ra St. Brown, DET WR

10.09: Hunter Renfrow, LV WR

10.10: Kadarius Toney, NYG WR


Thoughts: There wasn’t a tight end run, but I’m still happy with Goedert in Round 9, and Toney is a solid risk-reward selection; when on the field, the hope is that he’ll get the ball in Brian Daboll’s offense.


Round 11

11.01: Kenneth Gainwell, PHI RB

11.02: Dalton Schultz, DAL TE

11.03: DeAndre Hopkins, ARI WR

11.04: Christian Kirk, JAX WR

11.05: Skyy Moore, KC WR

11.06: Treylon Burks, TEN WR

11.07: Chase Claypool, PIT WR

11.08: Russell Gage, TB WR

11.09: Rondale Moore, ARI WR

11.10: Julio Jones, TB WR


Thoughts: Maybe I could have gone with Julio Jones for some Mike Evans insurance, but Gainwell is a quality RB4 with the hopes of a larger role in Philly’s backfield this season.


Round 12

12.01: Darrell Henderson, LAR RB

12.02: Robert Tonyan, GB TE

12.03: Trey Lance, SF QB

12.04: Nyheim Hines, IND RB

12.05: T.J. Hockenson, DET TE

12.06: Khalil Herbert, CHI RB

12.07: Sony Michel, MIA RB

12.08: Kenny Golladay, NYG WR

12.09: Zach Ertz, ARI TE

12.10: Aaron Rodgers, GB QB


Thoughts: Rodgers is a prime trade chip as the reigning back-to-back NFL MVP if he can continue to put up numbers without Davante Adams—which there should be some confidence about based on his talent and history in Matt LaFleur’s offense.


Round 13

13.01: Marquez Valdes-Scantling, KC WR

13.02: Matthew Stafford, LAR QB

13.03: Pat Freiermuth, PIT TE

13.04: Chris Olave, NO WR

13.05: Kirk Cousins, MIN QB

13.06: Dawson Knox, BUF TE

13.07: Derek Carr, LV QB

13.08: Rachaad White, TB RB

13.09: Hunter Henry, NE TE

13.10: Justin Fields, CHI QB


Thoughts: Valdes-Scantling joins Smith-Schuster to give me a nice chunk of the Kansas City passing attack, and I’d be hoping for some big games early to increase his value as my WR6 on a roster with three locked-in starting options.


Round 14

14.01: Dameon Pierce, HOU RB

14.02: Michael Carter, NYJ RB

14.03: Albert Okwuegbunam, DEN TE

14.04: D.J. Chark, DET WR

14.05: Marlon Mack, HOU RB

14.06: DeVante Parker, NE WR

14.07: Mike Gesicki, MIA TE

14.08: Tyler Allgeier, ATL RB

14.09: J.D. McKissic, WAS RB

14.10: Jamaal Williams, DET RB


Thoughts: We will probably be getting a Hard Knocks bump for Williams in the leadup to Week 1, and it’d likely be deserved as a guy head coach Dan Campbell clearly trusts.


Round 15

15.01: Bills, BUF D/ST

15.02: Buccaneers, TB D/ST

15.03: Saints, NO D/ST

15.04: 49ers, SF D/ST

15.05: Patriots, NE D/ST

15.06: Colts, IND D/ST

15.07: Rams, LAR D/ST

15.08: Broncos, DEN D/ST

15.09: Justin Tucker, BAL K

15.10: Matt Gay, LAR K


Round 16

16.01: Chiefs, KC D/ST

16.02: Cowboys, DAL D/ST

16.03: Tyler Bass, BUF K

16.04: Daniel Carlson, LV K

16.05: Ryan Succop, TB K

16.06: Younghoe Koo, ATL K

16.07: Greg Zuerlein, NYJ K

16.08: Harrison Butker, KC K

16.09: Evan McPherson, CIN K

16.10: Matt Prater, ARI K
