Round 1 of the Rookie IDP mock draft. https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/2020-rookie-idp-mock-draft-round-1/nfl/04/

Another off-season and what a wild one it has been! We’re already into April and all professional sports are STILL suspended and there is no end in sight. So in turn we have a ton of spare time! Spare time means content and discussions! The NFL draft is close and that means rookie mock drafts!

We all have our own opinion. We all have our own research. That’s the beauty of fantasy sports and mock drafting. 2019 was a great draft class. 2020 is even stronger! If you missed it here are our 2020 rookie rankings! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/2020-nfl-rookie-rankings/nfl/03/

This 2020 draft class is filled to the brim with young and hungry guys looking to stake their claim to the throne. This is a very strong class of kids and its loaded with offensive talent. Running backs and wide receivers galore! Let’s not forget the defensive side of things as well!

If you and your league get together to draft rookies separately then I salute you! It just adds more fun to the process! The more I get into the process the more I see how loaded this 2020 draft class is! Playing in an IDP league adds a whole different dynamic to both the draft and waivers!

This should be fun! Lets go!

ROUND 2

Wisconsin OLB Zack Baun

13. Zach Baun DE-Wisconsin

Baun has a very high football IQ and is able to play several linebacker positions. He’s able to fly around the field an accumulate tackles. Zach had 19.5 tackles for loss with 12.5 sacks in 2019. He comes from a great program in Wisconsin and is no doubt NFL ready.

Southern Illinois S Jeremy Chinn

14. Jeremy Chinn S-Southern Illinois

Chinn has come out of nowhere after an awesome combine! He’s freakishly athletic and that alone gives him tremendous upside. He has the size and speed to get it done on the field and make it big in the NFL.

Minnesota DB Antoine Winfield Jr.

15. Antoine Winfield Jr. DB-Minnesota

Another high football IQ guy who makes good decisions on the field. A lot of his potential will depend on the team who drafts him. If used in the right capacity Winfield Jr. can be an above average safety in the pros!

Texas Tech LB Jordyn Brooks

16. Jordyn Brooks LB-Texas Tech

Brooks has continued to improve during his time at Texas Tech. He gets to the ball fast and does damage. Has some learning to do in coverage if the coaches deem that it’s needed. He’s damn good at stopping the run so given the right set of plays his upside and potential can be realized.

Oregon LB Troy Dye

17. Troy Dye LB-Oregon

Troy is a high motor guy. He’s a mad man at linebacker! Troy racked up almost 400 tackles in his college career at Oregon! I can’t stress enough how tough this kid is and how much he loves playing football. He’s there for his team at all costs. This mind set will translate well into the pros. I’d draft a hard working kid like Dye any day of the week!

Lenior-Rhyne S Kyle Dugger

18. Kyle Dugger DB-Lenoir Rhyne

The perfect example of a boom or bust prospect. Kyle had a fantastic showing at the combine. At 6’1 217lbs he has the size and strength to be a ball hawk at safety. He can hang in the backfield and disrupt routes and break up passes. I love taking a good informed risk! Small school superstar!

California S Ashton Davis

19. Ashtyn Davis S-California

Davis is in your face physical and he’s fast enough to keep up! He didn’t run at the combine but he’s a track star at CAL. Plenty of tape on him. He’s a great cover guy and it makes for a great pick here. He’s willing and able to keep pace while accumulating tackles galore.

Appalachian State LB Akeem Davis-Gaither

20. Akeem Davis-Gaither LB-Appalachian State

Akeem has had back to back 100+ tackle seasons at App State. He will be a great fit in the NFL seeing how he’s a legit and true linebacker. I have no issue drafting his as a linebacker with tremendous upside on my fantasy team.

Utah DE Bradlee Anae

21. Bradlee Anae DE-Utah

One of the more polished edge rushers in the draft, Anae has played 700+ snaps in the last three seasons. He’s disruptive and a menace. He gets around the edge quick and drives QB’s crazy. There is some work ahead of him in the NFL but with his durability and experience I see no issue.

Alabama DT Raekwon Davis

22. Raekwon Davis DL-Alabama

Davis is 6’6 and 311lbs. I’m sure he could flip a car if you asked. We’ve all seen how NFL ready the kids from Alabama are right? What’s shocking is the fact he can do better and I’m certain he will. His size and strength doesn’t grow on trees, he’s a work in progress and I want in on it!

Boise State DE Curtis Weaver

23. Curtis Weaver DE-Boise State

Curtis is favorite of mine in this 2020 draft class. He’s a hard working versatile edge rusher. Earned All-American honors and is now the all time sack leader for the Mountain West conference. He can play several of the line backing positions which can only help his cause. He’s the kind of kid I want on my fantasy team.

TCU DT Ross Blacklock

24. Ross Blacklock DT-TCU

Ross had a good combine which he needed. I’ve read some articles and a few people look at him as a one year wonder. He’s 6’4 290lbs with massive hands. If an NFL team falls in love with him he could go in the 1st round. We can only read and prepare so much. Ultimately it’s out of our hands. Keep your eyes open on draft day.

2020 Fantasy Football ROOKIE IDP Mock Draft (Round 1)

This should be fun! Lets go!

ROUND 1

Ohio State DE Chase Young

1. Chase Young DE-Ohio State

The closer we get to draft day the closer the margin between pick one and two become. At this point it’s really just personal preference. Chase Young is still my pick at number one. He has every tool to become a dominate pass rusher. In the actual NFL Draft, Chase will be picked in the top 3 right? Assuming he goes to Washington that immediately puts him in the top 10, maybe 5, at the defensive end position.

Clemson LB Isaiah Simmons

2. Isaiah Simmons LB-Clemson

As stated above I firmly believe Young and Simmons are interchangeable at #1 and #2. If you’re detail orientated and a crazy note taker like me, you can get picky and specific. Simmons can literally line up anywhere on the field and produce. Simmons has an extremely high floor and will get as much playing time as he can handle in 2020. Hopefully in Detroit?

Oklahoma LB Kenneth Murray

3. Kenneth Murray LB-Oklahoma

The more reading and research I do the more I like Murray. Is there a significant drop off from the top 2? Not as much as you may think. Kenneth has a few flaws but don’t we all? Murray will be able to step right in and provide for your team. Tackles. Tackles. Tackles.

LSU EDGE K’Lavon Chaisson

4. K’Lavon Chaisson EDGE-LSU

Chaisson is a stud but people are shying away due to a torn ACL in 2018. He has quickness and explodes off the edge. I’m a fan of multi-positional eligible players. K’Lavon will soon fit that mold. DE and LB!

LSU LB Patrick Queen

5. Patrick Queen LB-LSU

Queen is no doubt a top 5 talent defensively in this years draft. He’s quick and moves with purpose. His instincts are top notch! More than likely Queen will be drafted in the top 25. Meaning, he makes an immediate impact for his new professional team. In turn, our fantasy teams too!

Iowa DE A.J. Espenesa

6. A.J. Espenesa EDGE-Iowa

In my first note and research session last month I had AJ at #4. Make no mistake Espenesa is still a top 10 IDP option in 2020 drafts. He has size, power and an overall toughness you can’t teach. I picture AJ as both an edge rusher AND defensive tackle. He’s able to be versatile and provide immediate dividends to our fantasy rosters.

Auburn DT Derrick Brown

7. Derrick Brown DT-Auburn

I absolutely love Derrick’s real life draft prospects. He is surely going to be drafted in the top 10 of the actual NFL draft. What does that mean for his fantasy value? I have a few options and ideas here. Some IDP leagues don’t require a defensive tackle. More of a flex spot where any IDP fit the roster spot. In specific IDP leagues’ where you roster an entire defense is where Brown can really shine.

LSU S Grant Delpit

8. Grant Delpit S-LSU

Has anyone noticed all these stud LSU defensive players flying off the board? Delpit belongs among them. If you look into it LSU safeties have done well in the pros. I can see a scenario where he’s talked about among the best safeties, Jamaal Adams or Landon Collins. Call me crazy?

Alabama DB Xavier McKinney

9. Xavier McKinney S-Alabama

Xavier is the poster boy for consistency! When owning a solid defensive back in IDP leagues I look for tackles and interceptions. Noting new I know but McKinney is ALWAYS around the ball. He’s a just a big play waiting to happen.

Penn State DE Yetur Gross-Matos

10. Yetur Gross-Matos EDGE-Penn State

Speaking of big plays, Matos makes a living in the offensive backfield. At 6’5 260lbs Yetur has major sack potential while plugging up holes and stopping the run. Matos still has some things to learn and when it all clicks watch out!

Ohio State LB Malik Harrison

11. Malik Harrison LB-Ohio State

Malik will look to stake his claim as the best rookie linebacker from the 2020 draft class by seasons end. Fundamentally sound and quick to make a good decision, Harrison just flat gets it done. Nothing fancy here, no slick talk, Malik is a stud and will provide for your team instantly. Playmaker.

South Carolina DT Javon Kinlaw

12. Javon Kinlaw DT-South Carolina

Kinlaw is a QB’s nightmare and a defensive coordinators dream! Athletically speaking, his speed stands out. In a world where the first move is important he’s quite gifted. Another multi-positional talent Javon is a tackle for loss monster who gets to the quarterback often!

2020 Deep Dive Rookie WR’s

2020 Deep Dive Rookie WR
4/1/20
David Reed https://twitter.com/Nfldraft_dwr
This might be one of the deepest WR class I have ever scouted. We can easily see 20 go in the first 3 rounds. Below are 25 of the best I was able to scout!
In case you missed it check out our NFL Rookie Mock Draft Series!
Lets take a deep dive into the wide receiver class in the 2020 NFL Draft!
Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb

CeeDee Lamb – Oklahoma  6’2 190

Pros:
– Great Ball Skills
– Adjusts and tracks the ball
– He wins 50/50 balls
– Natural WR at the position
– Blocks
– Good vision after the catch
– Shows a variety if ways to beat press coverage
– Good breaks out of routes
– Works to get open
Cons:
– Lacks elite speed
– Narrow Frame
– Can he work across the middle if needed? Most work was done on the outsideOverall:
Lamb has a chance to be the first WR selected in the 2020 draft. He has the makeup a team wants in a true #1 WR. He has great hands and the ability to beat any corner for any ball. A team needing a WR will have Lamb high on there boards.

Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy

Jerry Jeudy – Alabama  6-1 192

Pros:
– Amazing route runner
– Gets separation
– Good athlete
– Shows ability to beat man coverage at the line
– Great body control and body adjustments
– Vision/after catch ability
– Blocks
– Worked outside and in the slot
Cons:
– Few concentration drops
– Catches with his body more than you would like to see
– Can be more physical on the top of his routes or while fighting for the ball

Overall:
Jeudy has a strong case as well to be the first WR taken. His ability to separate with his amazing route running ability to me is key.  He shows he can work at any spot on the team at WR and will find a way to get open.

Alabama WR Henry Ruggs

Henry Ruggs III – Alabama 6-0 190

Pros:
– Speed (4.2 speed)
– Dangerous in open space
– Acceleration is amazing
– Good body control
– Showed ability to fight and win 50/50 balls
– Adjusts well to the ball
– Showed ability to beat press
– Willingness to block
Cons:
– Has some drop ball issues
– Not the biggest catch radius
– Lean frame
– Needs to improve overall as a route runner
– Has ability to beat man at line but continue to learn more moves to always beat it.

Overall:
SPEED KILLS, and we have seen that with the likes of Tyreek Hill. Well Ruggs is that type of weapon. Corners will have a heck of a time keeping up with Ruggs.  He can stretch the field and fight for the under thrown balls.  If he continues to grow in his route trees he could become the best WR in this class.

LSU WR Justin Jefferson

Justin Jefferson – LSU  6-3 192

Pros:
– Runs good smooth routes
– Use different tempos in his routes to keep defenders thrown off
– Adjusts well to throws
– Amazing on option routes
– Strong hands
– Body control
– Tracks the ball well
– Can produce yards after the catch
– Blocks
– Good 40 at combine to erase speed question
Cons:
– Show he can beat coverage on outside (worked slot a lot and had a lot if free releases)
– Improve his cuts out of routes to be even more crisp to be the most effective route runner

Overall:
Before the combine some questioned his speed but he came out and ran in the 4.4 range. That is no longer much of a concern. Jefferson biggest knock is can he prove the ability to play on the outside and consistently beat press coverage and make things happen without the easy free releases he had in the slot.  I believe he has this ability and should he a strong option for a WR need team between the 15 to 25 range in the first round.

Colorado WR Laviska Shenault

Laviska Shenault Jr – Colorado 6-2 220

Pros:
– Thick strong build
– Turns into a running back with the ball in his hands
– YAC ability
– Swiss army knife at Colorado
– Good natural hand catcher of the ball
– Big catch radius
– Explosive athlete
Cons:
– Improve route running
– Learn more moves to beat man coverage
– Block better
– Injuries

Overall:
Shenault is a great weapon that brings a lot to a team. He has the ability to run jet sweeps, go across the middle or make big plays down the field.  My biggest concerns are some of the small injuries he has suffered.  Current dealing with an abdominal injury that required surgery.  This may have him slip to early 2nd round but grades as a mid to late 1st WR prospect.

Clemson WR Tee Higgins

Tee Higgins – Clemson 6-4 215

Pros:
– Tall with a huge catch radius
– Amazing ball skills/wins 50/50 balls
– Blocks
– Over the shoulder catch ability
– Tracks and adjusts to the ball well
– Endzone threat
– Body control
Cons:
– Lacks elite speed/long strider
– Not going to wow you with his after the catch ability

Overall:
Higgins did not run his 40 at the combine which was the main things scouts wanted to see. He ran am unofficial 4.43 at his pro day by one scout but most had him in the 4.5 range.  Which isn’t bad for him.  He isn’t going to wow you with amazing break away speed but will wow you with his ability to catch almost anything his way. Combine that with his size you could be finding your QB his new favorite Red-zone target with this late 1st round WR.

Penn State WR KJ Hamler

KJ Hamler – Penn State  5-9 175

Pros:
– Electric player with great burst
– Quick twitch athlete
– Explosive with great cuts
– Hard runner
– Tough player for size
– Tracks ball well over the shoulder
– Controls his speed well/knows when to hit the next gear or slow it down
– Return ability
Cons:
– Injury concerns for his size and his aggressive play
– Small catch radius
– Some drop concerns/natural hands?
– Blocking

Overall:
Hamler is an explosive athlete who we did not get to see fast due to this virus and cancelled pro days.  Hamler rumored to be timing 4.27 at his training facility but would wager he is in the 4.3 range of speed which is fast has heck. Biggest complaint on him come from Ohio State corner Okudah (#1 CB in this class and potential top 10 pick) who said he has unlimited speed and unlimited quickness. Also Antoine Winfield of Minnesota (top 5 safety in this class) said he is the most difficult match up he faced.  Hamler has to prove he can catch the ball without drops and he can be a dangerous slot weapon for teams. Hes a borderline 1st rounder right now.

TCU WR Jalen Reagor

Jalen Reagor– TCU 5-11 195

Pros:
– Explosive and dynamic athlete
– Creates space in tight quarters
– Quick in and out of cuts
– Adjusts to the ball well
– YAC ability
– Return ability
Cons:
– Ran a simple route tree
– To many body catches
– Can’t win many 50/50 balls
– Poor blocker
– Disappointing 40 at combine (4.47, talks of high 4.2 low 4.3 speed)

Overall:
Reagor tape plays faster than his 40 and probably just tested bad. His tape shows he is one of the fastest players on the field on any give game. He can beat your and take it to the house in one big highlight play.  He isn’t big and will not win many contested balls and should work out of the slot mostly at the next level.

Baylor WR Denzel Mims

Denzel Mims – Baylor  6-3 206

Pros:
– Great back shoulder catcher
– Big hands and catch radius
– Run after the catch/ explosive lower half
– Natural ball skills
– Fast
– Tough and blocks
– Huge senior bowl showing off his ability (steady riser)
Cons:
– Needs better burst out of his cuts
– Improve as an overall route runner
– Improve release against press

Overall:
Mims keeps rising up boards and has a great shot being selected mid to late 1st round now. He shows he can be effective with his speed and size. His natural hands and catch radius are making teams fall in love with him.  Watch for his name to be called in the 20 range in April.

Arizona State WR Brandon Aiyuk

Brandon Aiyuk – Arizona State  6-0 200

Pros:
– Big play threat
– Twitchy athlete
– Hard to tackle (slippery)
– Smooth hips in his cuts
– Fights for every yard
– Adjust to ball well and keeps his speed
– Body control
Cons:
– Struggles against press coverage
– Improve routes
– Not a natural hand catcher
– Will not win many 50 50 balls
– 1 year of meaningful production
– Often waits for the ball than attack the ball

Overall:
Aiyuk has good ability as an athlete to be a threat on the field, especially if he improves his routes. He has a chance to go late 1st but should more than likely be selected round 2.

South Carolina WR Brandon Edwards

Brandon Edwards – South Carolina  6-3 215

Pros:
– Great size and fairly athletic for the size
– Strong after the catch
– Strong hands to pluck ball out of the air
– Excels at short and intermediate routes, allowing him to use his size to box defenders and win
– Wins contested routes and balls
– Great red-zone threat
– Blocks
Cons:
– Not the most elusive player in the open space
– Needs to improve route running to get more separation
– Needs to find more ways to beat man coverage

Overall:
Edwards is a big WR that has been able to beat college coverage by his sheer size and able to box out most defenders.  He will have to work on getting some more separation in his routes to get the most production out of him in the long run.  If you need a big physical WR though Edwards is a perfect option on day 2 of the draft.

USC WR Michael Pittman Jr.

Michael Pittman Jr. – USC  6-4 219

Pros:
– Big hands
– Huge catch radius
– Adjust and tracks the ball well
– Reads his QB well to find holes and gets open
– Strong and competed for the ball
– Wins 50/50 balls
– Blocks
Cons:
– Lacks elite speed and quickness
– Acceleration of the line isnt ideal
– Needs more moves to beat man coverage

Overall:
Pittman Jr could easily be the best WR in this class. He catches what feels like everything and has a massive catch radius. His main knock is his speed and quickness.  He will need to just keep working on his hurts in and out of cuts for separation and has a chance to be a steal on the 2nd day of the draft.

University of Michigan WR Donovan Peoples-Jones

Donovan Peoples-Jones – Michigan  6-2 208

Pros:
– Good blend of size, hands, Ball skills and athletic ability
– Shows ability to adjust to off target throws
– Tracks the ball naturally
– Body control and balance
– Big catch radius
– Easy acceleration
– Creates good leverage on routes
– Ability to break tackles for YAC
Cons:
– Lacks twitch and quickness in short yardage area
– Improve beating man coverage
– Used in the slot for easy free releases

Overall:
I like Peoples-Jones a lot. He is one of my favorite WR prospects in this class. He was hurt by poor QB play but think he has a chance to prove to coaches he can be a teams #1 WR.

Notre Dame WR Brandon Claypool

Chase Claypool – Notre Dame 6-4 230

Pros:
– Height, weight, speed and Strength
– Corners will struggle to knock him off his route
– Wins contested catches
– Competes hard after the catch and tries to bully defenders with his size
– Works space well against zone coverage
– Adjust to off placed balls well
Cons:
– Lacks agility in and out of cuts to create separation
– At times he seems unready for the ball to be at him already
– Before combine and his 4.42 40. Teams thought he may be best transitioned to a TE

Overall:
I think he would be best fit into a more TE role on a team. His size and working against linebackers more with his straight line speed would make him excel more at the next level.  He is a massive man with great straight line speed but raw when it comes to being a true WR for the next level.

Florida WR Van Jefferson

Van Jefferson – Florida 6-2 197

Pros:
– Route running technician
– Deceptive footwork
– Varies his releases out of routes
– Adjusts on the fly
– Great hands
– Tracks the ball well
– Works for YAC (yards after catch)
– Body control and Balance
Cons:
– 24 year old rookie
– Lacks elite college production
– Blocking
– Quicker than Fast (lacks elite speed)

Overall:
Jefferson had a chance to excel early on because of how good he is at route running and has good hands. His main knock is that his lack of production while at Florida. Part of that is the lack of a good passing game there and QB play. His age as a rookie is a small knock on him.  He can be a productive weapon for a team waiting to address WR late day 2 or maybe day 3.

Minnesota WR Tyler Johnson

Tyler Johnson – Minnesota  6-2 205

Pros:
– Quick feet and smooth hips
– Gears down and changes direction well
– Runs the whole route tree
– Strong hands
– Can catch contested balls
– Works the sideline well
– Tracks the ball
Cons:
– Not the strongest and can win more 50/50 if he got stronger
– Lacks elite vertical speed
– Blocking is only okay

Overall:
Johnson is very good WR prospect and was a key reason for Minnesota’s amazing 2019 season. He can anything thrown his way and runs a full route tree.  His biggest knock is he is not the fastest but he can make up for his ability to catch everything and run every route.

Texas A&M WR Quartney Davis

Quatney Davis – Texas A &M  6-1 199

Pros:
– Route running technicians
– Excellent footwork
– Set up breaks out of cuts well
– Doesn’t tip his routes
– Easy acceleration
– Work the middle of the field
– Balance body control
Cons:
– Hands and ball skills are disappointing
– Double catches to much
– Does not always find the ball or adjust as well as you want
– Adjust to zone better and aware of the side lines.
– Physical corners can beat him up

Overall:
Davis route running ability is amazing and teams will love it but they see how he struggles at time to locate the ball or make secure catches. Because of this he will drop. If a team feels he can improve as a catcher, combined with his route running he could he a great possession WR.

Liberty WR Antonio Gandy-Golden

Antonio Gandy-Golden – Liberty  6-4 222

Pros:
– Finds spots in zones and works back to his QB
– Massive catch radius
– Makes catches above the rim
– Big and physical
– Great hands
– Body control
– Runs routes with good timing
– Tracks the ball well
– Good field vision
Cons:
– Gradual acceleration
– Good physical corner will have no trouble keeping with him
– Lacks speed and not a twitchy athlete

Overall:
If Gandy-Golden was a better overall athlete in terms of speed and acceleration he could be in the running as one of the top WR prospects in this class.  He has amazing hands, size and catch radius.  He will have to learn to beat man coverage and create separation to excel at the next level.

Texas WR Devin Duvernay

Devin Duvernay – Texas 5-11 200

Pros:
– Amazing speed
– Great hands/catches everything
– Thicker build making him harder to tackle
– Can make people miss in open field
– Plays through contact
– He demands touches in space
Cons:
– Tight hipped, hinders his cuts some
– Rounds his cuts because of his hips
– Relies on space and his speed to much at times
– Needs to present himself to the QB better.

Overall:
Duvernay present as a great slot option in this draft.  His track speed, thicker build to handle working inside  and amazing hands teams will fall in love with this kid. He needs to get better on his routes and make them more crisp to continue to excel at the next level.

Ohio State WR K.J. Hill

K.J. Hill – Ohio State 6-0 192

Pros:
– Smooth and slippery player
– Pressures off coverage with vertical ability
– Quick to turn his head to the QB and get open quick.
– Sits in zone well
– Nifty runner with good body control and make first man miss
Cons:
– Smaller player with lack of physical traits. Can he handle NFL hits
– Average speed out of cuts.
– Struggles at 50/50 balls
– Small catch radius
– Can be knocked off his route and timing

Overall:
Hill doesn’t profile as good as other option in this draft but as a later round option. Hill can be a good check down who tries to work to the QB and be an option when the primary options are not there.

UCF WR Gabriel Davis

Gabriel Davis – UCF  6-3 212

Pros:
– Good size
– Good straight line speed but not a true burner but excels on vertical routes
– Tracks the ball well
– High point skills
– Decent foot work to clear press coverage
– Timing and deceptive on double moves
Cons:
– Limited route tree
– Lacks separation quickness
– Not dynamic with the ball in his hand to create after a catch
– Hands are iffy at times

Overall:
Davis is a bigger WR that can help stretch the field. He can also be used to go up and catch a high point ball with his size.  He lacks as a complete WR prospect and will have to develop more to be a starting piece but can be utilized early in his career to stretch the field.

Oregon State WR Isaiah Hodgins

Isaiah Hodgins – Oregon State 6-4 210

Pros:
– Great  body control and balance
– Great ball skills and hands
– Natural ability to track the ball
– Finds space in the zone
– Makes acrobatic catches look easy
– Runs great routes
– Big catch radius
– Works sidelines well
– Argue he has the most natural hands in this class
Cons:
– Does not break tackles or provide much in terms of YAC
– Slow release
– Struggles to get off man coverage
– Lacks overall speed and quickness in cuts
– Needs to play more physical

Overall:
Another weapon that is gifted beyond belief at catching the football but struggles in the speed and quickness department to create separation. He will be a late rounder WR base off his ball skills and hoping he can develop more with speed and quicker cuts.

Texas WR Collin Johnson

Collin Johnson – Texas 6-6 221

Pros:
– Big catch radius and wins 50/50 balls
– Runs good routes
– Huge size
– Good football IQ
– Blocks
Cons:
– Can double catch ball to much
– Lacks separation speed
– Lacks acceleration off the line

Overall:
Collin will be selected due to his size and catch radius but his lack of speed will hurt him.

Kentucky WR Lynn Bowden

Lynn Bowden – Kentucky  6-1 200

Pros:
– Versatile (played QB,RB and wide reciever)
– Plays with an edge
– Physical with the ball
– Good hands
– Return ability
– Works the slot
– Shows flashes to adjust
Cons:
– Not polished as WR due to his versatility
– Not as explosive overall to he a home-run threat
– Learn the position. (Growing pains)

Overall:
Bowden is one of the best overall athletes in the draft. A smart offensive head coach will love this player late rounds as just a pure weapon. He could be the Taysom Hill the Saints have.

Wisconsin WR Quintez Cephus

Quintez Cephus – Wisconsin 6-1 207

Pros:
– Thick and muscular frame with play-style to match it
– Good technique to clear press coverage
– Creates leverage on routes
– Creates great throwing windows
– Body control
– Wins contested balls
– Finds football adjusts
– Strong hands
– Blocks
Cons:
– No 2nd gear
– Lacks great burst
– Tightness in his cuts at times
– No twitch
– Off field issue

Overall:
Has ability to be a great possession WR at the next level.  He has good technique to win routes minus having the speed.  Great frame and hands to be a productive player.  He had one off the field issue that he missed all of 2018 (case was dropped).

2019 Fantasy Breakout John Brown

I know what day it is, but no jokes from me as I take a look at the players I think have the best chance of breaking out of the late rounds. John Brown last year was a perfect example. He finished the season with 147.8 PPR points after being drafted in the 12th round. Hitting on a couple of these players can give you a huge benefit against your leaguemates, so I’ll walk you through rounds 9-15 using ADP data from Fantasy Football Calculator to find those players with the best shot at boosting your team.

Round 9

Robby Anderson (WR) – Carolina Panthers

ADP: 9.02

Carolina WR Robby Anderson

The Panthers have some serious instability at the wide receiver position. Anderson should fit into the offense as the WR2 behind DJ Moore, which alone provides stand-alone value. It doesn’t end there. There’s a legitimate chance that Curtis Samuel could be traded between now and the draft in April, and if that’s the case, Anderson should see a huge number of targets.

Round 10

Emmanuel Sanders (WR) – New Orleans Saints

ADP: 10.08

Newly acquired New Orleans Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders

Sanders is probably the best wide receiver to play behind Michael Thomas. With two high quality receivers on the same offense, defenses will be spread thin, leaving tons of opportunities for Sanders to get a huge chunk of the work. This is a perfect fantasy offense with not too many mouths to feed. At this value, Sanders is a slam dunk.

Round 11

TJ Hockenson (TE) – Detroit Lions

ADP: 11.05

Detroit Lions TE TJ Hockenson

It’s rare for a tight end to break out in their rookie year. Hockenson was almost able to do that. After Stafford re-aggravated a back injury from 2018 and Hockenson finished the season with an injury of his own, that hope went away. If Stafford returns healthy this year, the connection between these two should be well established, and Hockenson will be in prime position to perform among the top tight ends in fantasy.

Round 12

Jordan Howard (RB) – Miami Dolphins

ADP: 12.03

Newly aquired Miami RB Jordan Howard

We know based on his time in Chicago and Philadelphia that Howard has all of the talent needed. The question remains whether the Dolphins can make a serious push in their rebuild. Some of the pieces are already there, with wide receivers DeVante Parker and Preston Williams, and now Howard at running back. If the Dolphins can make an improvement at quarterback and offensive line, Howard should be slated for a productive year.

Round 13

Drew Lock (QB) – Denver Broncos

ADP: 13.06

Denver Bronco QB Drew Lock

When Lock came off of injured reserve last year to replace veteran, Joe Flacco, it was like a switch was hit. The offense was alive again, and the Broncos went on to win 4 of their last 5 games. The same weapons at wide receiver have all been retained, and depth has been added at the running back position. Lock will be expected to improve even more in his sophomore year and should come into play as a very startable second quarterback on fantasy rosters.

Round 14

LeSean McCoy (RB) – Kansas City Chiefs

ADP: 14.03

Kansas CIty RB LeSean McCoy

It’s official that McCoy will not be resigning with the Chiefs in 2020, and he has stated that he has no plans to retire. While only speculations, the Chargers and the Eagles are potential landing spots. McCoy’s 2019 season was unimpressive, but the Mahomes led offense showed to be very pass-heavy, and there wasn’t enough work to make McCoy or starter Damien Williams strong fantasy options. McCoy is still a great player, and could prove to be the perfect addition for a team in the market for a running back.

Round 15:

Chris Herndon IV (TE) – New York Jets

ADP: 15.01

New York Jets TE Chris Herndon IV

Everything that could go wrong for Herndon last year did. Suspended for 4 games, having Trevor Siemian as a quarterback while Sam Darnold was out with Mono, and a Hamstring injury to end the season. There is such a prominent chemistry that should exist between an athletic tight end like Herndon and a young quarterback in Darnold. Herndon is basically free in drafts and worth a look if you waited until late to draft your first tight end.

For future ADP articles, I plan to use ESPN instead of Fantasy Football Calculator. As of now, it’s early in the season and some ADPs on FFC just don’t make sense. Regardless, I’m coming up with more and more ideas for content I want to bring to you guys. Lets have some discussions! If you disagree with any of my picks, let me know why. I look forward to hearing your thoughts. That’s all from me until next time!

2020 NFL Mock Draft – Advantage with Rankings

2020 NFL Mock Drafts – Advantage with Rankings
3/31/20
Ethan Cowlbeck

The NFL off-season has been all we could possibly ask for. It is for this reason that we are extremely lucky; the concept of football being the most relevant sport at the end of March is completely unprecedented, so being able to witness the fireworks show of names like Brady, Gurley, Hopkins, and others being moved around is the best case scenario.

Buccaneers acquire Tom Brady in free agency from Patriots

I think this is a great time to take a step back and analyze any mistakes we made in the previous fantasy season, and take note of how to prevent ourselves from making the same mistakes next year. Often during the season, I think of general rules of thumb to remember for drafts in upcoming years; “Consider the quality of the team when assessing the correctness of an ADP”, “Don’t avoid player’s just because of injuries. Consider it case to case”, etc. These are a few of my biggest regrets, but feel free to use yours in their place.

Cooper Kupp returns from ACL tear to finish WR#4 in 2019

However, simple rules of thumb like these are mere tokens of experience. A much cloudier subject in the month or two leading up to kickoff is often how to value positional rankings. On a surface level, they’re super fun to make. Taking positions and having unique opinions on where to rank players is an enjoyable and exciting part of the game. Drafting is a completely different challenge though. The magic of fantasy football drafts is that you have to account and cover for all positions on your team at the same time as your league mates, and rankings are often hard to stick to in this regard.

Lamar Jackson will likely be the first QB off of the board, but how do you determine where to draft him?

There are two extremes of drafting strategies that will always fall short:

Strategy 1. The Robot: “I have a fixed order for how I draft my positions. RB, RB, WR, RB, WR, TE.”

Strategy 2. Gut Feeling: “(Insert player here) is still available, and I’ve got a gut feeling he’ll do well, so I’ll take him.” This process repeats every round

Strategy 1 is not the answer because there were likely one or more very good players that were passed up on in order to comply with the drafter’s set order, and strategy 2 misses the mark because it involves assuming a player might have a good year instead of taking a player who is trustworthy and almost certainly will have a good year. My goal is to determine a way to draft that is guided by a process but still involves human decision.

The reason that ranking players and drafting solely off of those rankings doesn’t work is because ADP is not factored in. Drafting is a chess match between you and your league mates to see who can get the best players they want as late in the draft as possible. This is why you would benefit from ranking players two different ways. The first way is the standard method of ranking. Head to head, starting at the best, and working down with what’s left. These will obviously change as news about teams and players come out leading up to the draft, but that is to be expected.

Joe Mixon severely under performed relative to his mid-second round ADP

The second way is where ADP comes into play. Look at players and their average draft positions and color code their value. Green if you would draft them way ahead of their position, blue if their value matches their ADP, and red if you think they’re overvalued. In 2019 fantasy drafts, Todd Gurley was drafted frequently at the beginning of the second round. Many (myself included) thought this was much too high considering the arthritis in his knees. However, even if a player is overvalued at their ADP, there still comes a point where you would draft them. In one of my drafts, Gurley fell to the back of the third round in a 10 man PPR. While it was unsettling, I took him.

So how does this process look all put together? The first round is pretty simple. Most people have a hierarchy of players they will take, and base their following rounds on what they already have and what’s left. For those following rounds, Look for the players you have ranked highest on your head to head rankings, and of the high-ranking players, see which ones are color coded with the most green while addressing positional needs on your team. Draft prep like this prevents you from boxing yourself into set rules and giving you the freedom to draft how you choose, while eliminating the stress and panic of picking and drafting on the fly.

2020 Fantasy Football ROOKIE Mock Draft (Round 2)

2020 Fantasy Football ROOKIE Mock Draft (Round 2)
3/31/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

Another off-season and what a wild one it has been! We’re nearing the start of April and all professional sports are suspended and seasons are in question. So in turn we have a ton of spare time! Spare time means content and discussions! The NFL draft is close and that means rookie mock drafts!

If you missed round 1 of my rookie mock check it out right here! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/2020-fantasy-football-rookie-mock-draft-round-1/nfl/03/

We all have our own opinion. We all have our own research. That’s the beauty of fantasy sports and mock drafting. 2019 was a great draft class. 2020 is even stronger!

It’s an exciting time in football. There has been a changing of the guard at the quarterback position. The older studs like Brady, Brees and Rivers have had their day. Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson have taken over their respective positions.

This 2020 draft class is filled to the brim with young and hungry guys looking to stake their claim to the throne. This is a very strong class of kids and its loaded with offensive talent. Running backs and wide receivers galore!

If you and your league get together to draft rookies separately then I salute you! It just adds more fun to the process! The more I get into the process the more I see how loaded this 2020 draft class is! This should be fun! Lets go!

ROUND 2

Colorado WR Laviska Shenault

13. Laviska Shenault WR-Colorado

I’ll admit I may be a little high on him. In the rankings we’ve done and across the industry 13-14 is his sweet spot. He’s a bigger bodied kid who is able to break tackles and gain hard yardage. The biggest concern with Shenault are injuries. He has played through most of them but I firmly believe his ability to stay healthy is what will define his success in the NFL.

LSU QB Joe Burrow

14. Joe Burrow QB-LSU

Where do I start? Burrow put up video game numbers his championship senior season. That’s all well and good but what does that mean for his professional career? I hate to jump the gun but the world knows Cincinnati is drafting him number one overall. Burrow is outstanding at reading defenses and understanding coverage. His release point and footwork are both NFL ready. He has all the makings of your prototypical stud NFL QB. My only concern is the lack of support around him in Cincinnati. LSU has some legit stud talent all NFL ready in this years draft. Can Joe play at a high level in the NFL? My magic 8 ball says yes.

Utah RB Zach Moss

15. Zack Moss RB-Utah

If you’re into a tough punishing RB the Moss is your guy! Built with a strong compacted body he is a yards after contact machine. He mixed his powerful burst with spins and cuts with phenomenal balance. Moss isn’t known as a stud receiving back but that’s not a huge knock seeing how he’s still learning to pass block. Moss is young coaches dream. Hard working and strong and willing to learn.

USC WR Michael Pittman Jr.

16. Michael Pittman Jr. WR-USC

Pittman is a big bodied wide out who is a red zone nightmare. 6’4 223lb kid who is still filling out! He’s a good route runner and all the boxes are checked with him. Athleticism and the ability to high point balls and cut on a dime all make up his game. However, he’s a tad sluggish off the line and doesn’t offer much in terms of elusiveness. I’ve read a few articles mentioning he may be a one year wonder. Claiming his prior seasons were, “just ok” at best. Pittman has NFL pedigree. His father Michael Pittman Sr. was a running back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He’s a third round type real life selection but has massive upside in the second round of rookie drafts.

Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa

17. Tua Tagovailoa QB-Alabama

Tua has big game experience and mastered Alabama’s offense with the ability to read a defense and shred it accordingly. First thing anyone has mentioned in discussion of Tua is the hip injury. “He will never be the same again” type talk. Look, does this injury outweigh the kids potential? He has the arm strength of a pro QB and the wheels to turn a negative play into a positive. He’s mobile with a soft touch. Guess I’m more optimistic than most but I see no issue with his professional career. There are plenty of ways to get to him on defense but what about the adjustments a good offensive coach can make? Don’t reach in your rookie draft but jump when the time is right!

South Carolina WR Bryan Edwards

18. Bryan Edwards WR-South Carolina

Physical specimen who is strong footed with excellent vision. A slot guy better suited as a WR2 does most of his work in the middle of the field. If he can work on his hands the upside grows.

Arizona State RB Eno Benjamin

19. Eno Benjamin RB-Arizona State

Eno is one fun running back to watch! He’s able to spin and cut around defenders while grinding out tough yardage. He must improve his pass blocking ability or he will have a limited role in the NFL. Eno is still work in progress but what a wonderful way to start your NFL career! Shout out to Ethan on this one!

Arizona State WR Brandon Aiyuk

20. Brandin Aiyuk WR-Arizona State

Aiyuk has plenty of room to grow as a professional wide receiver. His route running and hands have plenty of inconsistencies. He’s an awesome return guy and can bring game breaking type plays. He can contribute right away in the slot or while returning punts or kicks. Aiyuk should learn and grow right in front of us. I’m excited to watch his path!

University of Michigan WR Donovan Peoples-Jones

21. Donovan Peoples-Jones WR-Michigan

Jones was a five star recruit coming into the University of Michigan. Safe to say the awful QB play in college held him back a little bit. DPJ’s hands, size, ball skills and athletic ability are all top notch! His body control and concentration are also advanced. Jones can help right off the bat with returns and in the slot.

Minnesota WR Tyler Johnson

22.Tyler Johnson WR-Minnesota

Tyler can win battles for the ball in contested situations. He’s physical with great route running skills. The biggest knock on Johnson is his ability to get separation and get away from the defense. If he can get off the line free there will be no issue. Tyler has some work to do in the next level of his career.

Vanderbilt RB Ke’Shawn Vaughn

23. Ke’Shawn Vaughn RB-Vanderbilt

Vaughn has good vision between the tackles but is basic in terms of an NFL RB. He’s a work in progress and a good choice if you have time to let a RB develop on your roster.

Penn State WR KJ Hamler

24. KJ Hamler WR-Penn State

His lack of size almost certainly puts him in the slot. He can hang his hat on his route running and run after catch skills. Still young and willing to learn KJ needs to hit’s the weights. He has a clear path to playing time and should learn and develop quite well on the field.

That’s it for round 1!

During my process of researching and actually writing this all out I noticed a few things. There are 15-20 kids that have an unbelievable ceiling with immense upside. I know “upside” is a fun buzz word in all fantasy outlets but it fits and I’m able to get my point across to you as the reader. This years rookie drafts are going to be loads of fun!

2020 Mid-Round Mock Madness (Rounds 5-8)

Mid-Round Madness

Round 4: https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/2020-fantasy-football-mock-draft-round-4/nfl/03

Last Year’s Mid-Round Star, Austin Ekeler

The players you find in the middle rounds that become pivotal weekly starters are the most critical part to a great draft. Just ask anyone who drafted Austin Ekeler last year. I will be highlighting two players per round from rounds 5-8 based on Fantasy Football Calculator ADP data as of March 30th. This will be the first of 2 articles, so stay tuned for Late-Round sleepers!

Round 5

Phillip Lindsay (RB) – Denver Broncos

ADP: 5.05

The Broncos are a serious force to be reckoned with this year. While I think this factors into his ADP, he’s not being drafted higher because of the tandem he shared with Royce Freeman most of last season. I expect that once the Broncos regain a high-powered offense led by Drew Lock, Lindsay emerges as a clear lead-back and weekly starter.

Christian Kirk (WR) – Arizona Cardinals

ADP: 5.11

I don’t care that Kirk just got demoted to the WR2 on his team. He was a crucial piece to this offense last year, and now has a clear role to play drawing targets while defenses keep their hands full with DeAndre Hopkins. I see Kirk being an extremely consistent piece in this offense that will benefit greatly from a much-improved receiving core.

ROUND 6

Hunter Henry (TE) – Los Angeles Chargers

ADP: 6.10

Henry would have finished last season as the 6th best tight end had he not started the season out from an ACL tear. I think he not only will hold the same pace in 2020, but out-perform it. Tyrod Taylor may be a step down from Phillip Rivers, but all of the pieces are there to keep that offense moving, and mobile, less experienced quarterbacks love checking down to the tight end. Expect him to have a huge share of Taylor’s targets this year.

Darren Waller (TE) – Las Vegas Raiders

ADP: 6.10

What can I say, the 6th round is a great time to draft a tight end at a good value. Waller was a breakout stud last year, and there’s no reason to believe he won’t have the same or even a larger workload in 2020. The city is pretty much the only thing that’s changed with the Raiders. The offense looks largely the same and Waller is an extremely safe option.

ROUND 7

Will Fuller (WR) – Houston Texans

ADP: 7.02

With DeAndre Hopkins out to Arizona, this receiving core is Fuller’s to run. The tandem of David Johnson and Duke Johnson in the backfield, as well as teammate receivers Kenny Stills and Keke Coutee will make sure that defenses can’t put all of their efforts into stopping Fuller. Hopkins gone gives Fuller all the room in the world to rise into a weekly starter at WR, which I expect him to do.

N’Keal Harry (WR) – New England Patriots

ADP: 7.05

Harry was an afterthought for the Patriots last year except for maybe a couple of fantasy relevant games late in the season. The absence of Brady means that the remaining Patriots are great values in fantasy. The combo of Harry and veteran, Julian Edelman will still be plenty to keep the Patriots’ passing offense fantasy relevant. At this stage of the draft, Harry is a reliable pick with a huge upside.

ROUND 8

James White (RB) – New England Patriots

ADP: 8.01

Every year I tell myself that it’s too dangerous to draft a Patriots running back. The 8th round is way too juicy of a spot to grab White though. The pre-season narrative last year that lead-back, Sony Michel would see an uptick in targets was largely unrealized. With no breakout tight end on the roster for Stidham to check down to, White should control a huge share of the offense.

Ronald Jones II (RB) – Tampa Bay Buccaneers

ADP: 8.12

Everything we thought we knew about Jones last year turned out to be so wrong. He could take the role as a lead back. He could play a part in the rushing and passing game. What’s different this year? I forecast fewer turnovers and even more trips to the redzone. This higher-powered Tampa Bay offense allows Jones to shine even brighter than before.

I would like to give a huge thanks to Chris Robin for giving me the chance to write for this great and supportive audience! I’d love to keep being a part of this as long as there’s football to write about and people to read it!

Also, keep on the lookout tomorrow for my deep dive into the late rounds to find the players you need to keep your eyes between now and August. That’s all from me until next time.

2020 Fantasy Football ROOKIE Mock Draft (Round 1)

2020 Fantasy Football ROOKIE Mock Draft (Round 1)
3/31/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

Another off-season and what a wild one it has been! We’re nearing the start of April and all professional sports are suspended and seasons are in question. So in turn we have a ton of spare time! Spare time means content and discussions! The NFL draft is close and that means rookie mock drafts!

We all have our own opinion. We all have our own research. That’s the beauty of fantasy sports and mock drafting. 2019 was a great draft class. 2020 is even stronger! If you missed it here are my 2020 rookie rankings. https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/2020-nfl-rookie-rankings/nfl/03/

It’s an exciting time in football. There has been a changing of the guard at the quarterback position. The older studs like Brady, Brees and Rivers have had their day. Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson have taken over their respective positions.

This 2020 draft class is filled to the brim with young and hungry guys looking to stake their claim to the throne. This is a very strong class of kids and its loaded with offensive talent. Running backs and wide receivers galore!

If you and your league get together to draft rookies separately then I salute you! It just adds more fun to the process! The more I get into the process the more I see how loaded this 2020 draft class is! This should be fun! Lets go!

ROUND 1

Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb

1. CeeDee Lamb WR-Okalahoma

I’m not normally a first overall draft pick freak. It has its advantages but it also comes with risk. This season I’m doing all that I can to get the number one overall selection. As you can see I have picked Lamb first overall. The longevity of the WR position compared to a RB is much more sustainable. In this case I’m grabbing Lamb due to his versatile on field ability. CeeDee will blow right be you in press coverage one play then tip toe down the side line the next. He’s a no doubt, can’t miss stud!

Wisconsin RB Jonathan Taylor

2. Jonathan Taylor RB-Wisconsin

The more I’ve looked these kids over the more that I’ve seen the first four or five selections are all about team/personal preference. I’m in Michigan and a Big 10 guy. I’ve seen Taylor play quite a bit. He’s the best pure RB in this draft. 5’10 226 lbs and built to run over and run past you. He’s a massive asset in dynasty leagues that can provide immediate dividends. It’s a perfect combo! If you don’t have the number one pick and still manage to grab Taylor consider that a WIN!

Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy

3. Jerry Jeudy WR-Alabama

Jeudy is an elite route running that will make an immediate impact on your team. Keep mind these first four or five guys can literally be interchangeable. That’s the beauty of this draft class. Fantasy football is fantasy football and I don’t mention, “sure things” or “can’t miss” but correct me if I’m wrong. These top five kids are can’t miss. Beat me up in the comments but I’m standing by that! Jerry is a plus pick with the ability to climb up WR rankings by seasons end. Consider him a huge steal if he falls to you here.

Georgia RB D’Andre Swift

4. D’Andre Swift RB-Georgia

Another stud running back from Georgia! Swift can burst through the line, breaking tackles and gain tough yards. Swift produced in the SEC, some of the best defenses in college football. He caught 73 passes for 666 yards and 5 touchdowns. D’Andre is electric, dynamic and quite swift on a football field. Another kid who will an impact from day 1!

Ohio State RB J.K. Dobbins

5. J.K. Dobbins RB-Ohio State

These top three running backs, including Dobbins are so close that it comes down to personal preference like I had mentioned. J.K. is a legit three down back. Something we don’t see much in the NFL anymore. Running for OSU against some tough Big Ten competition I could see Dobbins finishing 2020 as the best RB from this rookie class.

Florida State RB Cam Akers

6. Cam Akers RB-Florida State

Cam has struggled at FSU but not from any wrong doing himself. The Florida State program has struggled in the past few season. Cam is an amazing athlete who runs with power but can also catch passes. If you draft Akers this season he will slot in as an immediate RB2 with the upside to become your teams RB1. What’s shocking to me is he is still learning how to play the running back position. That mixed with poor offensive line play at FSU has some worried about his vision and ability to move downfield. Once he gets to the NFL expect some mild growing pains but a ton of excitement seeing how a real professional team can block around him!

LSU WR Justin Jefferson

7. Justin Jefferson WR-LSU

Justin is like a magician the way he can separate and get away from coverage. Another kid who will contribute right away I wouldn’t hesitate to draft him at 1.07.

LSU RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire

8. Clyde EdwardsHelaine RB-LSU

CEH runs with purpose and power. You know what he’s going to do and where he’s going to go and you can’t stop him anyway. Has the agility to break tackles AND catch passes. What I love about this crop of RB’s is their pass catching abilities. He disappointed at the combine with a 4.6 40 time but when you see the way he runs you understand why.

TCU WR Jalen Reagor

9. Jalen Reagor WR-TCU

Analytically speaking Reagor is the best WR in the class. He accounted for 20% of TCU’s offensive production. Another kid who didn’t do much at combine, Jalen is a lock for immediate production in the NFL. I’m excited about him and you should too!

Clemson WR Tee Higgins

10. Tee Higgins WR-Clemson

Tee has great technique and his separation skills are simply amazing. Higgings is big kid (6’3 215lbs) and is a force down field. If Higgins can develop using other parts of the field he can be a definite WR1 stud.

Alabama WR Henry Ruggs

11. Henry Ruggs WR-Alabama

All signs point a negative profile. He wasn’t the best WR on his own team. He didn’t have the best production. So why would we draft Henry in the first round of rookie drafts? He’s able to line up in the slot to create mismatches. He as fast as lightening and has some major work to do in the next level. Not as polished as the men drafted before him but has the potential to run with the best of them. Depending on your specific team needs Ruggs is a nice prospect to stash.

Baylor WR Denzel Mims

12. Denzel Mims WR-Baylor

Mims absolutely destroyed at the NFL combine. Ranking in the 90th percentile in his 40 yard dash (4.38), speed and burst. We’ve seen him shine on the outside and going deep. Denzel ranked 27th in yards per reception (15.9) and 5th in total touchdowns (28). Mims is athletic and provides an immediate impact for you fantasy team. As the last pick in the first round it’s a no-brainer. Draft Mims!

That’s it for round 1!

During my process of researching and actually writing this all out I noticed a few things. There are 15-20 kids that have an unbelievable ceiling with immense upside. I know “upside” is a fun buzz word in all fantasy outlets but it fits and I’m able to get my point across to you as the reader. This years rookie drafts are going to be loads of fun!

2020 Fantasy Football Mock Draft (Round 4)

2020 Fantasy Football Mock Draft (Round 4)
3/30/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

Football is upon us! In terms of drafting the content is a little early. The big names have already built projections and published books and magazines. Being early is not a bad thing. If you’re like me too much content isn’t a thing. Given the current situation across the county mock drafting and fantasy football discussions are needed!

Normally the fun leading up to the fantasy football draft season is talk of the top 10. Or who is the consensus number one. This season it’s quiet clear. Right?

What sets fantasy football aside for me is all the strategy that goes in. Some owners like crafty veterans while others want all rookies. There is no right way! It’s your team! You’re able to build it how you want!

I’m asking you all now to please get involved in a dynasty start up. I’m not trying to push my ideals on anyone but I promise you’ll thank me later! Fantasy football is a 365 24/7 kind of commitment!

We all find our own way in terms of fantasy sports. There is no wrong way! Build how you want and build to maximize your enjoyment.

I’m going to get into a mock draft series and publish the results! 12 team, full PPR scoring. Also six points per passing touchdown. I’m in a unique position to set the rules as I see fit. Lets get right into it!

ROUND 4

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen

37. Adam Thielen WR-Minnesota Vikings

With the departure of Diggs does Adam get more coverage? Of course, but talent always wins out. Thielen has that and is a PPR monster! He’s a set it and forget it kind of guy.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson

38. Chris Carson RB-Seattle Seahawks

Carson injured his hip last season but looks to be fully healthy for the start of 2020. Another personal favorite of mine. Can he finally become that workhorse RB1 we know he can be?

Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes

39. Patrick Mahomes QB-Kansas City

What can I say here that you don’t already know? Kid is stud, draft him. Good enough?

Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley

40. Todd Gurley RB-Atlanta Falcons

Gurley now plays in Atlanta. All I’ve heard is stay away and his knees are shot. I’m not buying into that. Todd immediately finds himself in the top 10 running backs to start the season. Draft him accordingly.

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp

41. Cooper Kupp WR-Los Angeles Rams

Another PPR stud WR! Look for Cooper to keep up the catches, yardage and touchdowns. Absolutely possible he catches a 100 balls in 2020.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley

42. Calvin Ridley WR-Atlanta Falcons

Another forgotten guy. A guy who plays second fiddle to Julio. That alone makes my mouth water. When Julio is on field he commands respect and coverage. Meaning Calvin is able to run free.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton

43. T.Y. Hilton WR-Indianapolis Colts

Health! Health! Health! Can T.Y. stay on the field? I sure hope so! When he’s on the field he’s lights out. I find the addition of Phil Rivers very intriguing. Call me crazy but I believe T.Y. can really climb the WR ranks this season.

Tennessee Titan WR A.J. Brown

44. A.J. Brown WR-Tennessee Titans

Ah one of my favorite fantasy WR’s! Kid had a phenomenal 2019 season! I firmly believe this will be the last season you can get him this cheap. Tennessee captured some magic last season and I see no reason why they can’t do it again in 2020.

New York Jets RB Le’Veon Bell

45. Le’Veon Bell RB-New York Jets

Do me a favor, go look into Bell and report back. Looks like he won’t be attending the Jets off season program. While coach Gase has said he never thought Bell was a good fit with the team. His contract is massive so he knows they won’t cut him. Basically he can do what he wants. It’s a very odd situation in New York. Regardless, when Bell is on the field he’s an asset to your fantasy team. Who knows what the future holds with Bell and the Jets.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner

46. James Connor RB-Pittsburgh Steelers

I’m really digging Connor in 2020 and the upside that’s involved. With Big Ben likely back and healthy the Steelers should be able to fire on all cylinders. Ben, Juju and Connor is a great real life combo. Grab a piece for your fantasy squad!

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz

47. Zach Ertz TE-Philadelphia Eagles

Ertz is a high end option at tight-end. Another guy who shows up each week and does his job.

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson

48. Allen Robinson WR-Chicago Bears

A-Rob put up a career high in receptions in 2019. Another guy who flies under the radar in fantasy circles. He’s a ho-hum kind of guy that produces for your fantasy team. No issue with drafting Robinson here.

That’s it for round 4!
