White Wolf 2017 Fantasy Football Mock Draft


Fantasy football season is getting closer by the day, and soon enough, it will be time to draft for real. One month from today, every team will be done their first three preseason games, so it would probably be safe to have your fantasy drafts (waiting until after Week 4 of the preseason would be better, but you should at least wait until after Week 3). It’s never too early for a mock draft, though. Here’s the first one of the summer, using a 10-team, standard (non-PPR) scoring format. [Editor’s Note: this is a ‘mock’ draft, so the players are ordered by how they likely will be selected in most leagues based on ADP and consensus rankings, not how they ‘should’ be selected according our rankings, which will be released next month.]

 

Round 1 (1-10)

Team 1: David Johnson, Cardinals RB

Team 2: Le’Veon Bell, Steelers RB

Team 3: Antonio Brown, Steelers WR

Team 4: Julio Jones, Falcons WR

Team 5: LeSean McCoy, Bills RB

Team 6: Odell Beckham Jr., Giants WR

Team 7: Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys RB

Team 8: A.J. Green, Bengals WR

Team 9: Melvin Gordon, Chargers RB

Team 10: Mike Evans, Buccaneers WR

 

Analysis: Most leagues are drafting Johnson, Bell, and Brown in that order; all three are worthy of the top spot. Zeke falls to seventh overall because of concerns about a suspension, but he will likely be a first-round pick as long as it’s no more than a couple games.

 

Round 2 (11-20)

Team 10: Jay Ajayi, Dolphins RB

Team 9: DeMarco Murray, Titans RB

Team 8: Jordy Nelson, Packers WR

Team 7: Jordan Howard, Bears RB

Team 6: Devonta Freeman, Falcons RB

Team 5: T.Y. Hilton, Colts WR

Team 4: Todd Gurley, Rams RB

Team 3: Dez Bryant, Cowboys WR

Team 2: Leonard Fournette, Jaguars RB

Team 1: Amari Cooper, Raiders WR

 

Analysis: The tier below Johnson/Bell/Elliott consists of Melvin Gordon, Jay Ajayi, Jordan Howard and others. Gordon went in the first, but Ajayi and Howard aren’t far behind. In PPR leagues, Devonta Freeman could go ahead of all of them. Also, rookie Leonard Fournette goes off the board at pick #19.

 

Round 3 (21-30)

Team 1: Rob Gronkowski, Patriots TE

Team 2: Michael Thomas, Saints WR

Team 3: Lamar Miller, Texans RB

Team 4: Alshon Jeffery, Eagles WR

Team 5: DeAndre Hopkins, Texans WR

Team 6: Brandin Cooks, Patriots WR

Team 7: Aaron Rodgers, Packers QB

Team 8: Marshawn Lynch, Raiders RB

Team 9: Doug Baldwin, Seahawks WR

Team 10: Tom Brady, Patriots QB

 

Analysis: Whether they should or shouldn’t go this high, quarterbacks usually start getting selected around now. There’s a good chance Rodgers and Brady are the top two overall fantasy players in 2017, so it’s hard to criticize it. Beast Mode will probably get some second-round consideration because of his name, but we’ll have to see how he looks this preseason.

 

Round 4 (31-40)

Team 10: Christian McCaffrey, Panthers RB

Team 9: Demaryius Thomas, Broncos WR

Team 8: Isaiah Crowell, Browns RB

Team 7: Sammy Watkins, Bills WR

Team 6: Drew Brees, Saints QB

Team 5: Joe Mixon, Bengals RB

Team 4: Travis Kelce, Chiefs TE

Team 3: Jordan Reed, Redskins TE

Team 2: Keenan Allen, Chargers WR

Team 1: Jarvis Landry, Dolphins WR

 

Analysis: Speaking of name recognition, Christian McCaffrey and Joe Mixon will probably go a little higher than maybe they should, as neither guy will have the backfield to themselves. Still, the talent is there to make a year-one impact. Similar to quarterback, tight ends go off the board early.

 

Round 5 (41-50)

Team 1: Carlos Hyde, 49ers RB

Team 2: Matt Ryan, Falcons QB

Team 3: Dalvin Cook, Vikings RB

Team 4: Andrew Luck, Colts QB

Team 5: Allen Robinson, Jaguars WR

Team 6: Mark Ingram, Saints RB

Team 7: Greg Olsen, Panthers TE

Team 8: Davante Adams, Packers WR

Team 9: Ty Montgomery, Packers RB

Team 10: Michael Crabtree, Raiders WR

 

Analysis: Dalvin Cook is selected right behind McCaffrey and Mixon, and he will likely climb up boards if Latavius Murray (ankle) is slow coming back. Andrew Luck’s status after shoulder surgery is something to keep an eye on, but we know he puts up numbers.

 

Round 6 (51-60)

Team 10: Terrelle Pryor, Redskins WR

Team 9: Russell Wilson, Seahawks QB

Team 8: Adrian Peterson, Saints RB

Team 7: Golden Tate, Lions WR

Team 6: Martavis Bryant, Steelers WR

Team 5: Jimmy Graham, Seahawks TE

Team 4: Tyreek Hill, Chiefs WR

Team 3: Emmanuel Sanders, Broncos WR

Team 2: Eddie Lacy, Seahawks RB

Team 1: Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals WR

 

Analysis: How high or too high for Martavis Bryant? He could go a round earlier or two rounds later. Adrian Peterson will be hotly debated leading up to drafts, but someone in every league will probably take him fairly early based on the name.

 

Round 7 (61-70)

Team 1: Cam Newton, Panthers QB

Team 2: Julian Edelman, Patriots WR

Team 3: Frank Gore, Colts RB

Team 4: Spencer Ware, Chiefs RB

Team 5: Pierre Garcon, 49ers WR

Team 6: Delanie Walker, Titans TE

Team 7: Stefon Diggs, Vikings WR

Team 8: Brandon Marshall, Giants WR

Team 9: Jamison Crowder, Redskins WR

Team 10: C.J. Anderson, Broncos RB

 

Analysis: Some really good middle-round skill position players here, including veteran Frank Gore, Pierre Garcon, and Brandon Marshall. Spencer Ware and C.J. Anderson will look to seize the majority of the backfield work on their respective teams this preseason.

 

Round 8 (71-80)

Team 10: Tyler Eifert, Bengals TE

Team 9: LeGarrette Blount, Eagles RB

Team 8: Bilal Powell, Jets RB

Team 7: Kelvin Benjamin, Panthers WR

Team 6: Mike Gillislee, Patriots RB

Team 5: Tevin Coleman, Falcons RB

Team 4: Danny Woodhead, Ravens RB

Team 3: Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers QB

Team 2: Kyle Rudolph, Vikings TE

Team 1: Donte Moncrief, Colts WR

 

Analysis: Team 3 pairs Ben Roethlisberger with Antonio Brown, and Big Ben could be a strong QB1 if Martavis Bryant can get on the field. Danny Woodhead’s stock sees a big boost with Kenneth Dixon’s injury knocking him out until 2018, but and he should go even higher in PPR leagues.

 

Round 9 (81-90)

Team 1: Ameer Abdullah, Lions RB

Team 2: Paul Perkins, Giants RB

Team 3: Robert Kelley, Redskins RB

Team 4: DeSean Jackson, Buccaneers WR

Team 5: Dak Prescott, Cowboys QB

Team 6: Willie Snead, Saints WR

Team 7: Matt Forte, Jets RB

Team 8: Martellus Bennett, Packers TE

Team 9: Theo Riddick, Lions RB

Team 10: Corey Davis, Titans WR

 

Analysis: Two Lions backs go in the 9th round, and health will be an important factor for both of them. Paul Perkins and Robert Kelley both go, too, but will need to hold off rookies this season.

 

Round 10 (91-100)

Team 10: Doug Martin, Buccaneers RB

Team 9: Zach Ertz, Eagles TE

Team 8: Derek Carr, Raiders QB

Team 7: DeVante Parker, Dolphins WR

Team 6: Kirk Cousins, Redskins QB

Team 5: Denver Broncos D/ST

Team 4: Seattle Seahawks D/ST

Team 3: Houston Texans D/ST

Team 2: Mike Wallace Ravens WR

Team 1: Jameis Winston, Buccaneers QB

 

Analysis: Anyone drafting Doug Martin is hoping he is able to get the starting job back upon his return from suspension. Defenses start to go off the board—which will undoubtedly happen in many leagues—but that’s probably a mistake.

 

Round 11 (101-110)

Team 1: Randall Cobb, Packers WR

Team 2: Eric Decker, Titans WR

Team 3: Marcus Mariota, Titans QB

Team 4: Matthew Stafford, Lions QB

Team 5: Jeremy Maclin, Ravens WR

Team 6: Kansas City Chiefs D/ST

Team 7: Terrance West, Ravens RB

Team 8: Minnesota Vikings D/ST

Team 9: Darren Sproles, Eagles RB

Team 10: Kenny Britt, Browns WR

 

Analysis: Eric Decker and Jeremy Maclin could both provide great value as late-signing veteran wideouts. Like Danny Woodhead, Terrance West benefits from Kenneth Dixon’s unfortunate injury.

 

Round 12 (111-120)

Team 10: James White, Patriots RB

Team 9: Derrick Henry, Titans RB

Team 8: Philip Rivers, Chargers QB

Team 7: Darren McFadden, Cowboys RB

Team 6: Stephen Gostkowski, Patriots K

Team 5: John Brown, Cardinals WR

Team 4: Kareem Hunt, Chiefs RB

Team 3: Latavius Murray, Vikings RB

Team 2: Corey Coleman, Browns WR

Team 1: Cardinals D/ST

 

Analysis: Handcuff round here with Derrick Henry, Kareem Hunt, and Latavius Murray all being scooped up. Kickers start to go off the board, too…

 

Round 13 (121-130)

Team 1: Justin Tucker, Ravens K

Team 2: Thomas Rawls, Seahawks RB

Team 3: Samaje Perine, Redskins RB

Team 4: Jonathan Stewart, Panthers RB

Team 5: Jack Doyle, Colts TE

Team 6: Cameron Meredith, Bears WR

Team 7: John Ross, Bengals WR

Team 8: Adam Thielen, Vikings WR

Team 9: Eric Ebron, Lions TE

Team 10: Rishard Matthews, Titans WR

 

Analysis: A couple teams pickup backup tight ends, which might not be a bad idea in a pretty deep year for the position. Cameron Meredith might slip based on the name and team, but he was impressive in 2016.

 

Round 14 (131-140)

Team 10: Jordan Matthews, Eagles WR

Team 9: New England Patriots D/ST

Team 8: C.J. Prosise, Seahawks RB

Team 7: Jamaal Charles, Broncos RB

Team 6: Tyrell Williams, Chargers WR

Team 5: Jacquizz Rodgers, Buccaneers RB

Team 4: Marvin Jones, Lions WR

Team 3: Eric Ebron, Lions TE

Team 2: Giovani Bernard, Bengals RB

Team 1: Duke Johnson, Browns RB

 

Analysis: Jamaal Charles in the 14th round doesn’t seem like something that would ever happen, but he’s not even a lock to make the team. Jacquizz Rodgers will likely have three weeks as the starter for Tampa Bay’s explosive offense.

 

Round 15 (141-150)

Team 1: Joe Williams, 49ers RB

Team 2: Carolina Panthers D/ST

Team 3: Quincy Enunwa, Jets WR

Team 4: Sterling Shepard, Giants WR

Team 5: Jeremy Hill, Bengals RB

Team 6: Ted Ginn, Saints WR

Team 7: New York Giants D/ST

Team 8: Jamaal Williams, Packers RB

Team 9: Tyrod Taylor, Bills QB

Team 10: Dan Bailey, Cowboys K

 

Analysis: Joe Williams is a clear Kyle Shanahan guy, but he is probably just a handcuff to start the season with Carlos Hyde and Tim Hightower on the roster. Not to be confused with Joe, Jamaal Williams could push Ty Montgomery for early-down work after being picked in the 4th round of the NFL Draft.

 

Round 16 (151-160)

Team 10: Los Angeles Rams D/ST

Team 9: Matt Bryant, Falcons K

Team 8: Mason Crosby, Packers K

Team 7: Adam Vinatieri, Colts K

Team 6: Breshad Perriman, Ravens WR

Team 5: Cairo Santos, Chiefs K

Team 4: Matt Prater, Lions K

Team 3: Steven Hauschka, Bills K

Team 2: Will Lutz, Saints K

Team 1: Josh Doctson, Redskins WR

 

Analysis: This should be all kickers in your draft.
