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 Mock Draft (Round 2)

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 2

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones

13. Aaron Jones RB-Green Bay Packers

First round talent right here. The running back has always been the focal point in Green Bay. Plus Wisconsin in November/December is conducive for running. Ha!

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette

14. Leonard Fournette RB-Jacksonville Jaguars

We finally saw what Leo can do while staying injury free! Really surprised me with his receiving skills!

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce

15. Travis Kelce TE-Kansas City

If you draft Kelce here you gain a clear advantage. You are selecting the best player at a premium position. Travis puts up yards and points that some WR dream of accomplishing.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb

16. Nick Chubb RB-Cleveland Browns

Is anyone worried about Kareem Hunt? Chubb rushed for 100 yards in four of seven games when Hunt was active. I’ve never looked twice at Chubb, maybe that isn’t fair but at a certain point him and Hunt will just cancel each other out.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin

17. Chris Godwin WR-Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tom Brady is now the QB in Tampa! Do we give Godwin a slight boost? Heck yeah we do! Godwin finished as WR2 last season. Expect more of the same in 2020.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs

18. Josh Jacobs RB-Las Vegas Raiders

Kid had one heck of a rookie season! Now we know what we have in Josh. I’m expecting a monster season!

Cincinnati Bengal’s RB Joe Mixon

19. Joe Mixon RB-Cincinnati Bengal’s

Joe scratched and clawed last season on a horrible Bengal team. Do they draft Joe Burrow next month? I’d bet the farm on it. AJ Green has also been franchised so things are looking up in Cincy. Expect Mixon to have a fantastic season.

Denver Broncos RB Melvin Gordon            photo courtesy USAtoday.com

20. Melvin Gordon RB-Denver Broncos

MG3 is in Denver now. So is Philip Lindsay, what does that mean? In today’s NFL the one two RB combo is the new normal. Personally, I see MG3 being fine while Lindsay’s number drop just a tad. Gordon is the back to own in Denver. Calling it now.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans

21. Mike Evans WR-Tampa Bay Buccaneers

I love Mike and I love these Tampa Bay WR’s in 2020. Evans can be a monster and expect him to dominate. High floor kind of guy.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake

22. Kenyan Drake RB-Arizona Cardinals

Cardinals new starting RB with Hopkins out wide should pay dividends! Expect Arizona to target offensive lineman in the draft and watch them trickle in during free agency. Drake is excites me this season!

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay

23. Kenny Golladay WR-Detroit Lions

Did you know Kenny lead the league in WR touchdowns last season. Also, Matthew Stafford missed major time! Kenny still did his thing with multiple QB’s so what can we expect with a healthy Stafford?

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper

24. Amari Cooper WR-Dallas Cowboys

I will be honest with you, I’ve never owned Cooper. Don’t think I’ve ever wanted to. Not the best endorsement right? He finalized a deal to stay in Dallas with Zeke and Dak. I can’t deny the talent and the numbers he puts up. He belongs in the second round.

That’s it for round 2!
