Fantasy football 10-team, 1/2-PPR mock draft

Matthew Berry lists Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Dak Prescott, Kyler Murray and Russell Wilson as the premier fantasy quarterbacks this season.

It’s mock draft season, and that means trying different draft strategies to see what works and what doesn’t.

This week, the ESPN fantasy experts conducted a 10-team, 1/2-PPR mock draft, and one of the experts — Tom Carpenter — decided to take advantage of the depth at WR this season by loading up on the other positions in the first five rounds.

Carpenter selected the following with his first five picks:

Rd. 1 – Saquon Barkley, RB, NYG (No. 4)
Rd. 2 – Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, KC (No. 17)
Rd. 3 – Darren Waller, TE, LV (No. 24)
Rd. 4 – George Kittle, TE, SF (No. 37)
Rd. 5 – Travis Etienne Jr., RB, JAC (No. 44)

That approach certainly solidified his RB and TE positions, but what was Carpenter left with at QB and WR? And would it have been better to take at least one big-name WR in rounds 1-5?

Take a look for yourself, and learn who’s rising on draft boards, who’s falling and how things are playing out as we get closer to the start of the NFL season.

The participants this week, in order of draft position, were: NFL Nation’s Mike Triplett, fantasy analysts Tristan H. Cockcroft and Jim McCormick, NFL Nation editor Tom Carpenter, NFL reporter Dan Graziano, Fantasy editors Joe Kaiser, Keith Lipscomb and Sachin Dave Chandan, Fantasy analyst Matt Bowen and Fantasy researcher Kyle Soppe.
