2023 Fantasy Football Mock Draft 6.0: 12-team, Full PPR (3 WR)

Training camp begins next week, and today’s mock draft—using the FantasyPros draft simulator—is for a 12-team, full PPR league with three starting wide receivers. All previous mocks can be viewed via the links below:


Mock 1.0: 12-team, 0.5 PPR

Mock 2.0: 10-team, PPR

Mock 3.0: 10-team, Standard

Mock 4.0: 16-team, PPR

Mock 5.0: 12-team, 0.5 PPR (Superflex)


Round 1

1.01: Christian McCaffrey, SF RB

1.02: Justin Jefferson, MIN WR

1.03: Austin Ekeler, LAC RB

1.04: Saquon Barkley, NYG RB

1.05: Rhamondre Stevenson, NE RB

1.06: Bijan Robinson, ATL RB

1.07: Ja’Marr Chase, CIN WR

1.08: Jonathan Taylor, IND RB

1.09: Cooper Kupp, LAR WR

1.10: Josh Jacobs, LV RB

1.11: Tyreek Hill, MIA WR

1.12: Derrick Henry, TEN RB


Thoughts: McCaffrey got the edge, but Justin Jefferson drew stronger consideration with three starting receivers. I feel good enough about hitting on wideouts throughout the draft to stick with McCaffrey, though.


Round 2

2.01: Tony Pollard, DAL RB

2.02: Stefon Diggs, BUF WR

2.03: Joe Mixon, CIN RB

2.04: Travis Kelce, KC TE

2.05: Nick Chubb, CLE RB

2.06: Davante Adams, LV WR

2.07: CeeDee Lamb, DAL WR

2.08: Breece Hall, NYJ RB

2.09: A.J. Brown, PHI WR

2.10: Jahmyr Gibbs, DET RB

2.11: Garrett Wilson, NYJ WR

2.12: Josh Allen, BUF QB


Thoughts: Allen would have almost certainly finished as the overall QB1 last year if not for the cancellation of Bengals-Bills, and he’ll be a top option again in 2023. It’ll be interesting to see where Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes land in this format with wide receivers perhaps pushed up the board.


Round 3

3.01: Amon-Ra St. Brown, DET WR 

3.02: Mark Andrews, BAL TE

3.03: Jaylen Waddle, MIA WR

3.04: Najee Harris, PIT RB

3.05: Chris Olave, NO WR

3.06: Travis Etienne Jr., JAX RB

3.07: Aaron Jones, GB RB

3.08: Tee Higgins, CIN WR

3.09: Keenan Allen, LAC WR

3.10: T.J. Hockenson, MIN TE

3.11: Kenneth Walker III, SEA RB

3.12: James Conner, ARI RB


Thoughts: St. Brown gets a boost in full PPR formats, as he’ll be the focal-point of Detroit’s passing attack and usually avoids difficult matchups in the slot. The former fourth-rounder has seen double-digit targets in 14 of his past 22 games.


Round 4

4.01: DK Metcalf, SEA WR

4.02: George Kittle, SF TE

4.03: DeVonta Smith, PHI WR

4.04: Rachaad White, TB RB

4.05: Patrick Mahomes, KC QB

4.06: Chris Godwin, TB WR

4.07: Jalen Hurts, PHI QB

4.08: Amari Cooper, CLE WR

4.09: Michael Pittman Jr., IND WR

4.10: Christian Kirk, JAX WR

4.11: Alexander Mattison, MIN RB

4.12: Deebo Samuel, SF WR


Thoughts: Samuel is a tremendous value as a borderline top-50 pick, and I love pairing him with Christian McCaffrey. In a way, Deebo is like a partial handcuff with increased rushing production if McCaffrey were to ever miss time.


Round 5

5.01: Terry McLaurin, WAS WR

5.02: J.K. Dobbins, BAL RB

5.03: Mike Williams, LAC WR

5.04: DeAndre Hopkins, FA WR

5.05: Jerry Jeudy, DEN WR

5.06: Drake London, ATL WR

5.07: Diontae Johnson, PIT WR

5.08: D.J. Moore, CHI WR

5.09: Dameon Pierce, HOU RB

5.10: Calvin Ridley, JAX WR

5.11: Miles Sanders, CAR RB

5.12: Christian Watson, GB WR


Thoughts: Drafting McLaurin as the WR3 in a 12-team league is a great outcome after not taking a wide receiver until Round 3, and it shows that having the No. 1 overall pick—even with a few options to choose from—seems like a big advantage in 2023.


Round 6

6.01: Marquise Brown, ATL WR

6.02: Mike Evans, TB WR

6.03: Brandon Aiyuk, SF WR

6.04: Justin Fields, CHI QB

6.05: Tyler Lockett, SEA WR

6.06: Javonte Williams, DEN RB

6.07: Cam Akers, LAR RB

6.08: D’Andre Swift, PHI RB

6.09: Joe Burrow, CIN QB

6.10: Lamar Jackson, BAL QB

6.11: Jahan Dotson, WAS WR

6.12: Alvin Kamara, NO RB


Thoughts: We are still awaiting news about a suspension for Kamara, but he can return fresh down the stretch—and the duo of McCaffrey and Kamara being at their best would make this a dominant lineup.


Round 7

7.01: Dalvin Cook, FA RB

7.02: Kyle Pitts, ATL TE

7.03: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, SEA WR

7.04: Treylon Burks, TEN WR

7.05: Dallas Goedert, PHI TE

7.06: Darren Waller, NYG TE

7.07: Pat Freiermuth, PIT TE

7.08: Jordan Addison, MIN WR

7.09: George Pickens, PIT WR

7.10: JuJu Smith-Schuster, NE WR

7.11: Brandin Cooks, DAL WR

7.12: Justin Herbert, LAC QB


Thoughts: I perhaps should have gone with a tight end here with some really good options still on the board, but Cook is another upside swing at running back. The former Vikings star can still be one of the NFL’s top runners.


Round 8

8.01: David Montgomery, DET RB

8.02: Isiah Pacheco, KC RB

8.03: Trevor Lawrence, JAX QB

8.04: Kadarius Toney, KC WR

8.05: Courtland Sutton, DEN WR

8.06: Deshaun Watson, CLE QB

8.07: Rashod Bateman, BAL WR

8.08: Tua Tagovailoa, MIA QB

8.09: Jameson Williams, DET WR

8.10: Michael Thomas, NO WR

8.11: Dak Prescott, DAL QB

8.12: Gabe Davis, BUF WR


Thoughts: A stack with Josh Allen honestly wasn’t something I had in mind, but Davis is still available, and I am going to double up with James Cook—who gets a boost in full PPR leagues—with the next pick, too.


Round 9

9.01: James Cook, BUF RB

9.02: Khalil Herbert, CHI RB

9.03: Antonio Gibson, WAS RB

9.04: Quentin Johnston, LAC WR

9.05: Jakobi Meyers, LV WR

9.06: Elijah Moore, CLE WR

9.07: Jamaal Williams, NO RB

9.08: Rondale Moore, ARI WR

9.09: AJ Dillon, GB RB

9.10: Brian Robinson Jr., WAS RB

9.11: Samaje Perine, DEN RB

9.12: Allen Lazard, NYJ WR


Thoughts: Cook will be splitting work with Damien Harris (and potentially others) this year, but he’ll get a shot to have the lead role for one of the league’s best offenses. Getting him this late is tremendous value.


Round 10

10.01: Adam Thielen, CAR WR

10.02: Rashaad Penny, PHI RB

10.03: Zay Flowers, BAL WR

10.04: Jerick McKinnon, KC RB

10.05: Darnell Mooney, CHI WR

10.06: Damien Harris, BUF RB

10.07: Zach Charbonnet, SEA RB

10.08: Odell Beckham Jr., BAL WR

10.09: Zay Jones, JAX WR

10.10: Nico Collins, HOU WR

10.11: Tyler Allgeier, ATL RB

10.12: Evan Engram, JAX TE


Thoughts: This is another turn where I’m picking with two selections in mind, as Engram should be a solid TE1 based on how he ended last year, but there are other options to pair him with at tight end.


Round 11

11.01: Greg Dulcich, DEN TE

11.02: Donovan Peoples-Jones, CLE WR

11.03: Tyler Boyd, CIN WR

11.04: Wan’Dale Robinson, NYG WR

11.05: Devin Singletary, BUF RB

11.06: Romeo Doubs, GB WR

11.07: Jeff Wilson Jr., MIA RB

11.08: DJ Chark Jr., CAR WR

11.09: De’Von Achane, MIA RB

11.10: D’Onta Foreman, CHI RB

11.11: Alec Pierce, IND WR

11.12: K.J. Osborn, MIN WR


Thoughts: Again, I wanted to double up at tight end, and Dulcich got the slight edge over David Njoku as more of an upside target to pair with Evan Engram. His usage in Sean Payton’s system will be fun to watch.


Round 12

12.01: Raheem Mostert, MIA RB

12.02: Elijah Mitchell, SF RB

12.03: Anthony Richardson, IND QB

12.04: Skyy Moore, KC WR

12.05: David Njoku, CLE TE

12.06: Cole Kmet, CHI TE

12.07: Cowboys D/ST

12.08: Gerald Everett, LAC TE

12.09: Dalton Schultz, HOU TE

12.10: Michael Gallup, DAL WR

12.11: Kenneth Gainwell, PHI RB

12.12: Kendre Miller, NO RB


Thoughts: Miller is gunning for the starting job for New Orleans, and while that might be a stretch when Alvin Kamara is active, the rookie should be a solid bench piece to begin his career.


Round 13

13.01: Hunter Renfrow, LV WR 

13.02: 49ers D/ST

13.03: Curtis Samuel, WAS WR

13.04: Roschon Johnson, CHI RB

13.05: Geno Smith, SEA QB

13.06: Chigoziem Okonkwo, TEN TE

13.07: Aaron Rodgers, NYJ QB

13.08: Patriots D/ST

13.09: Jaylen Warren, PIT RB

13.10: Rashid Shaheed, NO WR

13.11: Daniel Jones, NYG QB

13.12: Robert Woods, HOU WR


Thoughts: I wanted to add a couple of more wideouts to close out the draft, and Renfrow should be a favorite target of Jimmy Garoppolo. There might even be a scenario where Josh Jacobs holds out and Davante Adams is eventually traded to further boost Renfrow’s stock.


Round 14

14.01: Tyler Higbee, LAR TE

14.02: Kirk Cousins, MIN QB

14.03: Joshua Kelley, LAC RB

14.04: Jared Goff, DET QB

14.05: Chuba Hubbard, CAR RB

14.06: Chase Claypool, CHI WR

14.07: Isaiah Hodgins, NYG WR

14.08: John Metchie III, HOU WR

14.09: Leonard Fournette, FA RB

14.10: Irv Smith Jr., CIN TE

14.11: Jonathan Mingo, CAR WR

14.12: Tim Patrick, DEN WR


Thoughts: Patrick has drawn understated buzz this offseason, and he should be a big part of Denver’s new-look offense. Early drafters should be looking to him as a late-round option.


Round 15

15.01: Van Jefferson, LAR WR

15.02: Matthew Stafford, LAR QB

15.03: Tank Bigsby, JAX RB

15.04: Ezekiel Elliott, FA RB

15.05: Cordarrelle Patterson, ATL RB

15.06: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, KC RB

15.07: Kareem Hunt, FA RB

15.08: Michael Carter, NYJ RB

15.09: Bills D/ST

15.10: Jalin Hyatt, NYG WR

15.11: Dalton Kincaid, BUF TE

15.12: Jake Ferguson, DAL TE


Thoughts: Jefferson is the clear No. 2 wide receiver in Sean McVay’s offense for the first time in his career, and he brings a stable floor along with downfield upside. I now have seven wideouts for this WR-heavy format.


Round 16

16.01: Eagles D/ST

16.02: Jaguars D/ST

16.03: Jets D/ST

16.04: Darius Slayton, NYG WR

16.05: Pierre Strong Jr., NE RB

16.06: Broncos D/ST

16.07: Russell Wilson, DEN QB

16.08: Saints D/ST

16.09: Ravens D/ST

16.10: Justin Tucker, BAL K

16.11: DeWayne McBride, MIN RB

16.12: Steelers D/ST


Round 17

17.01: Tyler Bass, BUF K

17.02: Daniel Carlson, LV K

17.03: Bengals D/ST

17.04: Harrison Butker, KC K

17.05: Jason Myers, SEA K

17.06: Evan McPherson, CIN K

17.07: Nick Folk, NE K

17.08: Younghoe Koo, ATL K

17.09: Brandon McManus, JAX K

17.10: Jason Sanders, MIA K

17.11: Jake Elliott, PHI K

17.12: Matt Gay, IND K
