Round 1

1.01: Justin Jefferson, MIN WR

1.02: Christian McCaffrey, SF RB

1.03: Ja’Marr Chase, CIN WR

1.04: Austin Ekeler, LAC RB

1.05: Tyreek Hill, MIA WR

1.06: Travis Kelce, KC TE

1.07: Cooper Kupp, LAR WR

1.08: Stefon Diggs, BUF WR

1.09: CeeDee Lamb, DAL WR

1.10: Saquon Barkley, NYG RB

1.11: Bijan Robinson, ATL RB

1.12: Nick Chubb, CLE RB


Thoughts: The second slot in full PPR leagues is great because you either end up with McCaffrey or Justin Jefferson, so I gladly take the top fantasy running back to build the roster around.


Round 2

2.01: Amon-Ra St. Brown, DET WR

2.02: Davante Adams, LV WR

2.03: A.J. Brown, PHI WR

2.04: Jaylen Waddle, MIA WR

2.05: Garrett Wilson, NYJ WR

2.06: Patrick Mahomes, KC QB

2.07: Josh Allen, BUF QB

2.08: Tony Pollard, DAL RB

2.09: Jonathan Taylor, IND RB

2.10: Derrick Henry, TEN RB

2.11: Jalen Hurts, PHI QB

2.12: Rhamondre Stevenson, NE RB


Thoughts: My thinking here is to get the Philadelphia stack of Hurts and DeVonta Smith, and quarterback was the choice as the better value—especially with Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen already going in Round 2.


Round 3

3.01: DeVonta Smith, PHI WR

3.02: Josh Jacobs, LV RB

3.03: Najee Harris, PIT RB

3.04: Mark Andrews, BAL TE

3.05: Joe Mixon, CIN RB

3.06: DK Metcalf, SEA WR

3.07: Chris Olave, NO WR

3.08: Travis Etienne Jr., JAX RB

3.09: Aaron Jones, GB RB

3.10: Calvin Ridley, JAX WR

3.11: Tee Higgins, CIN WR

3.12: Chris Godwin, TB WR


Thoughts: I don’t really love any of the values here with Smith unfortunately gone, so Jacobs was worth the risk with the hopes he doesn’t sit out any games for Las Vegas.


Round 4

4.01: Jahmyr Gibbs, DET RB

4.02: Joe Burrow, CIN QB

4.03: Tyler Lockett, SEA WR

4.04: Keenan Allen, LAC WR

4.05: T.J. Hockenson, MIN TE

4.06: Breece Hall, NYJ RB

4.07: Deebo Samuel, SF WR

4.08: Amari Cooper, CLE WR

4.09: Lamar Jackson, BAL QB

4.10: Dameon Pierce, HOU RB

4.11: Kenneth Walker III, SEA RB

4.12: Miles Sanders, CAR RB


Thoughts: Walker has been a major value as he slips to the fifth or even sixth round in some drafts, but I get a dominant trio at running back to start my roster along with Jalen Hurts.


Round 5

5.01: Mike Williams, LAC WR

5.02: D.J. Moore, CHI WR

5.03: Terry McLaurin, WAS WR

5.04: DeAndre Hopkins, TEN WR

5.05: Alexander Mattison, MIN RB

5.06: Alvin Kamara, NO RB

5.07: George Kittle, SF TE

5.08: Drake London, ATL WR

5.09: Justin Fields, CHI QB

5.10: Justin Herbert, LAC QB

5.11: Darren Waller, NYG TE

5.12: Diontae Johnson, PIT WR


Thoughts: Not taking a wideout earlier obviously leaves the team without an elite option, but Moore has big-time upside if Justin Fields makes a leap, and Chicago will feature their newest weapon in 2023.


Round 6

6.01: Kyle Pitts, ATL TE

6.02: Jerry Jeudy, DEN WR

6.03: James Cook, BUF RB

6.04: David Montgomery, DET RB

6.05: Isiah Pacheco, KC RB

6.06: J.K. Dobbins, BAL RB

6.07: Christian Watson, GB WR

6.08: Trevor Lawrence, JAX QB

6.09: Dalvin Cook, NYJ RB

6.10: Dallas Goedert, PHI TE

6.11: Christian Kirk, JAX WR

6.12: Tua Tagovailoa, MIA QB


Thoughts: Kirk is a nice value this summer with Calvin Ridley taking some attention away from him (both as a fantasy option and real-life target); he’ll again be a trusted weapon for Trevor Lawrence.


Round 7

7.01: James Conner, ARI RB

7.02: Jahan Dotson, WAS WR

7.03: Brandon Aiyuk, SF WR

7.04: Mike Evans, TB WR

7.05: Jordan Addison, MIN WR

7.06: Rachaad White, TB RB

7.07: Michael Pittman Jr., IND WR

7.08: Cam Akers, LAR RB

7.09: Marquise Brown, ARI WR

7.10: Javonte Williams, DEN RB

7.11: D’Andre Swift, PHI RB

7.12: Antonio Gibson, WAS RB


Thoughts: The status of Terry McLaurin (toe) could further boost Dotson’s stock, including in Week 1 if he’s the top wideout versus Arizona. After that, it’d be ideal to have McLaurin back for some tougher matchups early in the year.


Round 8

8.01: Samaje Perine, DEN RB

8.02: 49ers D/ST

8.03: George Pickens, PIT WR

8.04: Brandin Cooks, DAL WR

8.05: Jamaal Williams, NO RB

8.06: AJ Dillon, GB RB

8.07: Steelers D/ST

8.08: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, SEA WR

8.09: Eagles D/ST

8.10: Khalil Herbert, CHI RB

8.11: Michael Thomas, NO WR

8.12: Treylon Burks, TEN WR


Thoughts: Thomas is the fourth selection in a row at wide receiver, and now the roster is very balanced despite going heavy at running back. Hitting on a tight end (or two) will be key.


Round 9

9.01: Gabe Davis, BUF WR

9.02: Brian Robinson Jr., WAS RB

9.03: Deshaun Watson, CLE QB

9.04: Kadarius Toney, KC WR

9.05: Skyy Moore, KC WR

9.06: Jerick McKinnon, KC RB

9.07: Rashaad Penny, PHI RB

9.08: Daniel Jones, NYG QB

9.09: JuJu Smith-Schuster, NE WR

9.10: Elijah Moore, CLE WR

9.11: Zach Charbonnet, SEA RB

9.12: Courtland Sutton, DEN WR


Thoughts: Robinson Jr. and Antonio Gibson had an even split in the preseason, but a big takeaway is that Washington’s starter showed soft hands in the passing game. He should be a solid low-end RB2/FLEX option.


Round 10

10.01: Anthony Richardson, IND QB

10.02: De’Von Achane, MIA RB

10.03: Quentin Johnston, LAC WR

10.04: Zay Jones, JAX WR

10.05: Devin Singletary, HOU RB

10.06: Cowboys D/ST

10.07: Jeff Wilson Jr., MIA RB

10.08: Allen Lazard, NYJ WR

10.09: Odell Beckham Jr., BAL WR

10.10: Zay Flowers, BAL WR

10.11: Evan Engram, JAX TE

10.12: Rashod Bateman, BAL WR


Thoughts: I was targeting one of the Baltimore wideouts at the other end of this turn, but they all went off the board. Still, Engram was my top target as someone that arguably gets a slight boost in full PPR leagues.


Round 11

11.01: Jakobi Meyers, LV WR

11.02: David Njoku, CLE TE

11.03: Dak Prescott, DAL QB

11.04: Elijah Mitchell, SF RB

11.05: Pat Freiermuth, PIT TE

11.06: Rondale Moore, ARI WR

11.07: Ezekiel Elliott, NE RB

11.08: DJ Chark Jr. CAR WR

11.09: Romeo Doubs, GB WR

11.10: Nico Collins, HOU WR

11.11: Adam Thielen, CAR WR

11.12: Kirk Cousins, MIN QB


Thoughts: Njoku is said to be having a tremendous camp, so I like the idea of pairing him with Evan Engram if you don’t take a tight end early.


Round 12

12.01: Tank Bigsby, JAX RB

12.02: Raheem Mostert, MIA RB

12.03: Isaiah Hodgins, NYG WR

12.04: Michael Gallup, DAL WR

12.05: Geno Smith, SEA QB

12.06: Jameson Williams, DET WR

12.07: Jaylen Warren, PIT RB

12.08: Damien Harris, BUF RB

12.09: Tyler Boyd, CIN WR

12.10: D’Onta Foreman, CHI RB

12.11: Kenneth Gainwell, PHI RB

12.12: Jonathan Mingo, CAR WR


Thoughts: Gainwell will probably go higher than this in real drafts with a chance to be the lead back for the Eagles, as he has proven to be a trusted both in the passing game and around the goal line.


Round 13

13.01: Juwan Johnson, NO TE

13.02: Hunter Renfrow, LV WR

13.03: Dalton Kincaid, BUF TE

13.04: Kendre Miller, NO RB

13.05: Chigoziem Okonkwo, TEN TE

13.06: Darnell Mooney, CHI WR

13.07: Tyler Allgeier, ATL RB

13.08: Bills D/ST

13.09: Tyler Higbee, LAR TE

13.10: Sam LaPorta, DET TE

13.11: Jalin Hyatt, NYG WR

13.12: Dalton Schultz, HOU TE


Thoughts: Renfrow is a very sneak bounce-back candidate after essentially being labeled a cut candidate earlier in the offseason, so those in full PPR leagues should at least be looking to draft him late.


Round 14

14.01: K.J. Osborn, MIN WR

14.02: Cole Kmet, CHI TE

14.03: Jerome Ford, CLE RB

14.04: Chuba Hubbard, CAR RB

14.05: Cordarrelle Patterson, ATL RB

14.06: Greg Dulcich, DEN TE

14.07: Deuce Vaughn, DAL RB

14.08: Gus Edwards, BAL RB

14.09: Marquez Valdes-Scantling, KC WR

14.10: Donovan Peoples-Jones, CLE WR

14.11: Zamir White, LV RB

14.12: Tyjae Spears, TEN RB


Thoughts: Hopefully we see Jacobs returns to the Raiders soon, but White is worth taking as an insurance policy and handcuff while the situation remains up in the air.


Round 15

15.01: Justin Tucker, BAL K

15.02: Jets D/ST

15.03: Patriots D/ST

15.04: Aaron Rodgers, NYJ QB

15.05: Tyler Bass, BUF K

15.06: Roschon Johnson, CHI RB

15.07: Rashee Rice, KC QB

15.08: Mike Gesicki, NE TE

15.09: Harrison Butker, KC K

15.10: Broncos D/ST

15.11: Leonard Fournette, FA RB

15.12: Daniel Carlson, LV K


Round 16

16.01: Ravens D/ST

16.02: Evan McPherson, CIN K

16.03: Younghoe Koo, ATL K

16.04: Browns D/ST

16.05: Jason Sanders, MIA K

16.06: Jake Elliott, PHI K

16.07: Graham Gano, NYG K

16.08: Buccaneers D/ST

16.09: Jason Myers, SEA K

16.10: Cameron Dicker, LAC K

16.11: Brandon McManus, JAX K

16.12: Dolphins D/ST
