Fantasy Football "One Man Mock Draft" 2.0

ROUND 1

1) Antonio Brown (WR, PIT)

2) Julio Jones (WR, ATL)

3) Todd Gurley (RB, LA)

4) Odell Beckham Jr (WR, NYG)

5) Lamar Miller (RB, HOU)

6) David Johnson (RB, ARI)

7) Adrian Peterson (RB, MIN)

8) DeAndre Hopkins (WR, HOU)

9) Le'Veon Bell (RB, PIT)

10) Dez Bryant (WR, DAL)

Wide receivers dominate the beginning of the first round, with three out of the top four picks being pass catchers. Antonio Brown and Julio Jones should be the top two picks in all formats aside from dynasty; whether it is PPR or standard does not matter, because Brown and Jones are the unanimous 1-2 combo regardless. I'm a bigger fan of Brown and would rather take him with the top pick, but you can't go wrong with Jones #1 either. Todd Gurley moved up to the top RB spot and into the top three overall after the suspension of Le'Veon Bell, who is now being drafted ninth overall. Gurley is on a mediocre team (which is why I had him so low in the rankings before) but he's the workhorse back in Los Angeles and is a freak of nature, so he should have no problem having an elite season. Lamar Miller and David Johnson are both guys that are great selections in the middle of the first round, as you'll be getting high-end RB1s later than they have gone in previous years; you'd be lucky to get a high-end RB1 at the #4 pick in previous years, but now you can get one much later than that. Dez Bryant jumps into the first round after an impressive first preseason game and a setback with his teammate. I've been down on Bryant because of his injuries and awful 2015 season, but have recently changed my mindset and see him at his pre-2015 value. He's a very solid addition at the end of the first round as a high-end WR1.


ROUND 2

11) Rob Gronkowski (TE, NE)

12) AJ Green (WR, CIN)

13) Ezekiel Elliott (RB, DAL)

14) Doug Martin (RB, TB)

15) Jordy Nelson (WR, GB)

16) Jamaal Charles (RB, KC)

17) Allen Robinson (WR, JAX)

18) Brandon Marshall (WR, NYJ)

19) Mark Ingram (RB, NO)

20) Devonta Freeman (RB, ATL)

Ezekiel Elliott took a tumble into the second round of the draft due to his recent hamstring issue that has kept him sidelined. If he recovers soon and is 100% heading into the season, he may jump back into the first round. Brandon Marshall's fantasy value is salvaged by Ryan Fitzpatrick's return to the Jets; Marshall returns to his WR1 value and is a great selections at the end of the second round. I have Rob Gronkowski as the first pick of the second round, but he is definitely not someone that I will be drafting that high. 11th overall is a good place for him to be drafted because of his high upside and freakish skills, but his injury concerns and Brady's absence will cause me to steer clear of him. I wouldn't take him until the end of the second round, but he will definitely be selected before then. Devonta Freeman is another player that I will be steering clear of; he is a candidate for a major regression and is my Bust of the Year choice, and will also be splitting a lot of touches with Tevin Coleman. I'd rather be the guy to pass on him than to select him and have him bust.


ROUND 3

21) Keenan Allen (WR, SD)

22) Eddie Lacy (RB, GB)

23) Mike Evans (WR, TB)

24) LeSean McCoy (RB, BUF)

25) Sammy Watkins (WR, BUF)

26) Carlos Hyde (RB, SF)

27) Alshon Jeffery (WR, CHI)

28) Aaron Rodgers (QB, GB)

29) Thomas Rawls (RB, SEA)

30) Cam Newton (QB, CAR)

The rise of Eddie Lacy continues, as he has gone from a RB3 in the middle rounds to a high-end RB2 in the third round. He is definitely a player that you should target in your drafts, as he could return to RB1 value this season if he manages to stay off the trainer's table. Another player on the rise is LeSean McCoy, who I will also be targeting in drafts if he manages to fall to the third or fourth rounds of drafts. He is a bit of an injury concern but he is a sure-fire RB1 when healthy, and an offseason of no injuries is a very good sign for 2016. There's also a 99% chance that he faces no discipline from the NFL for his nightclub incident, so you won't have to worry about that. Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton round out the third round as the first two QBs off the board, and I think this is the perfect place for them to go. If you want to reach on them a few picks higher over Hyde and Jeffery then that's fine as well, but being drafted in the mid-to-late third round is a great place to pick one of these two elite QB1s.


ROUND 4

31) Latavius Murray (RB, OAK)

32) TY Hilton (WR, IND)

33) Jordan Reed (TE, WAS)

34) Ben Roethlisberger (QB, PIT)

Fantasy Football Stock Watch: Training Camp

Stock Up

Tyrod Taylor (QB, BUF): Taylor has done great things for the Bills and has the fantasy potential, but the only thing holding him back was a lack of commitment from the Bills. That changed today, as Taylor reportedly signed a 6-year extension that will keep him in Buffalo for a long time. He had been in the solid QB2 range because of his situation, but this raises his value up to high-end QB2 with solid QB1 upside. He’s still going to have some underwhelming fantasy days but he has massive upside and is worth drafting in the mid-to-late rounds of drafts.

Arian Foster (RB, MIA): Foster was recently signed by the Dolphins and everyone assumed he would be playing second fiddle to Jay Ajayi, but it looks like Foster has the inside track on the starting job. Ajayi has been dealing with a bruised knee and Foster has taken advantage of Ajayi’s absence, drawing praise from everyone who watches him. He has true low-end RB1 potential if he can win the starting job and attain a bellcow role but realistically, his ceiling is closer to solid RB2. He’s worth a middle-round investment in drafts and will continue to shoot up draft boards if he impresses more.

Michael Thomas (WR, NO): There has been nothing but praise for the rookie out of Ohio State, who is starting to turn heads. He has been a force during training camp and has made several spectacular catches, as well as start off the preseason with a 4-67-0 performance. Normally I would not be a fan of a Saints WR because of the Saints’ tendency to spread the ball around, but Thomas is definitely worth a middle-round investment in drafts due to his high upside.

Sammie Coates (WR, PIT): Another young receiver that’s been tearing it up during training camp? How about sophomore Sammie Coates, who is reportedly pushing Markus Wheaton for the 2nd WR job in Pittsburgh. Coates is best known for his big play in the Divisional Round last season against the Broncos, but he has followed that up with a very strong camp. If he either wins the 2nd WR job or is given a key role in the Steelers offense, he will be an enticing fantasy option in the mid-to-late rounds of drafts.

Marvin Jones (WR, DET): Megatron’s departure from the Lions left a big hole in the offense that Golden Tate would fill, but it turns out that Marvin Jones could be the top WR when the season starts. He has been impressive in training camp and has been rumored to be the favorite to top the WR depth chart, which makes him a very interesting fantasy option. He doesn’t seem like an attractive option and someone that you would want to invest a high pick on, but he could end up being a weekly WR2 that would justify an early middle-round pick.

The Jets' aerial attack: The return on Ryan Fitzpatrick is music to the ears of anyone who has Jets players in fantasy football. While it is hard to imagine FitzMagic being the force that he was last year, he should still be very solid and considered a high-end QB2 with weekly QB1 upside. His return benefits the dynamic WR duo the most, as Brandon Marshall remains at WR1 value and Eric Decker remains as a high-floor WR2. It’s safe to invest in the Jets offense again.


Stock Down

Matt Forte (RB, NYJ): Ryan Fitzpatrick’s return is not enough to save the already diminishing fantasy value of Matt Forte. It looks very likely that Forte and Bilal Powell will be splitting touches this season, and the fact that it will be close to an even split brings down the fantasy value of both of them. Forte remains a low-end RB2 because of who he is and what he is able to do, but those expecting a repeat of 2014 will be very disappointed.

Frank Gore (RB, IND): The Colts did nothing to address their very thin RB depth behind Gore, but they still plan on limiting his touches and working in other RBs (watch out for Josh Ferguson). There are a lot of gurus putting Gore inside the top 20 and saying that he is a lock to finish as an RB2, but I can’t see any scenario where Gore is anything more than a bye-week fill in. He’s worth a mid-to-late round pick but nothing more.

Julian Edelman (WR, NE): I’m a fan of Edelman but I will be ignoring him in almost all of my fantasy leagues this season. He has become very injury-prone over the past few seasons and is currently dealing with an injury that is threatening his Week 1 availability. I’m a big believer in not using high picks on players who will be injury headaches, which is what Edelman will most likely be all season. He joins Alshon Jeffery (who is also dealing with ANOTHER injury) as players who I would not touch with a ten-foot pole unless they fell far down draft boards.

Corey Coleman (WR, CLE): Coleman has so much potential a month ago, but now it seems very unlikely that he will be a viable fantasy option this season. He is dealing with a tricky hamstring injury that will keep him out of the first game of preseason, but the return of Josh Gordon is the real dagger. My best advice to you: invest a later pick in Coleman, hope he goes off the first few weeks before Gordon returns, and sell him ASAP before Gordon returns; he won’t be anything more than a low-end FLEX after Week 4.

Tight Ends: The tight end position looked so promising heading into training camp, but injuries has derailed many sleepers and top-tier guys. Tyler Eifert leads the list, as it is becoming clear that his injury-free 2015 season was a fluke; he’s now dealing with an array of injuries that will most likely keep him out of the first month of the season. Eric Ebron also suffered an injury that was first considered to be a torn Achilles but is not believed to be that severe. He is currently week-to-week and could miss some time to start the season. Ladarius Green also joins the injury party, as he has reportedly been dealing with troubling headaches; this is a major cause for concern because he has had a bad history of concussions since joining the league. All of these players are not players that you should be targeting in drafts and should only be drafted if you get them at a steal.
