I know it’s May 24th but the show must go on. A month after the NFL draft, I participated in a mock draft, the week we meet about our fantasy magazine. Here’s what I did and found interesting.
12 Team, Snake, PPR Expert draft
I ended up with the 4th pick in a snake draft. This is going in just off the top of my head.
1-4: Ja’Marr Chase (WR) Cincinnati
This is the BEST WR in football, paired with an all-world QB. 100 catches and 15 plus TDs are not unattainable.
It’s pick 17 and I know who my crush is. Cam Akers is sitting there. Anxiety kicks in, I love this stuff
2-21: Cam Akers (RB) Rams
This is a TOP 3 RB this year. He’ll be on the field a ton, healthy, and tore it up recovering. Hold on to the ball.
3-28: David Montgomery (RB) Chicago Bears
I look for guys who get snaps and touches, playing with Fields- he should give the team both.
We’re at pick 34 and I’m eyeing Josh Allen, first F-Bomb as he goes at 42.
4-45: Kyle Pitts (TE) Atlanta Falcons
My target guy on a not-so-very good team philosophy. He will be the top target but rack up 4th quarter points against a prevent defense.
5-52; Justin Herbert (QB) Chargers
I missed out on Allen but was able to fill the void with Herbert, a step-down, we’ll see.
Pick #62, I’m eyeing you, Hunter, those slot PPR points will rock. 2nd F-Bomb at 66.
6-69: Chris Olave (WR) New Orleans Saints
He gives me that Waddle and Smith feel. He’ll step in as a rookie and hit the ground running. How is the Saints relationship with Michael Thomas?
Que Que Time: Tony Pollard, Michael Carter
7-76: Joe Burrow (QB) Cincinnati Bengals
The Herbert-Burrow combo took me far last season, I love having them back in the fold. Pick my matchup.
Watching Nuke Hopkins with 6 game suspension situation. He’s still there until 90.
8-93: Michael Carter (RB) NY Jets
Breece Hall went ahead of Carter. I’m a big Carter fan, I’ll take my chances.
9-100: Chase Claypool (WR) Pittsburgh Steelers
They force-feed him the ball in so many ways and he makes plays. Red Zone threat.
10-117: Dameon Pierce (RB) Houston Texans
I give him until a week in training camp that he is the guy. I will steal him here and enjoy the benefits.
11-124: Noah Fant (TE) Seattle Seahawks
Backup TE who has familiarity with potential chemistry with the QB he previously played with in Denver.
12-141: Ravens D/ST
Have you looked at what they have plus what they brought in? They’re going to be tough.
13-148: Tyson Allgeier (RB) Atlanta Falcons
The other RB I feel will win the touches pretty early. He’ll at least be a Goalline threat to start.
15-172: Evan McPherson (K) Cincinnati Bengals
He doesn’t fear the moment, I’ll take it.
16-185: Nico Collins (WR) Houston Texans
Sleeper on a guy who I feel will be the top target after Brandin Cooks is injured.
