Fantasy Football mock draft: The zero running back strategy in full-point PPR scoring

Mock drafts are helpful for attempting new issues. It is why we encourage you to do as many as doable earlier than your precise Draft Day. You get to experiment with completely different methods and determine what works greatest for you in constructing your Fantasy group.

In our newest 12-team, PPR mock draft — you possibly can watch the stay outcomes here — I attempted one thing completely different from the No. 12 spot by taking a Zero RB method. It is the primary mock draft this season the place I’ve gone Zero RB, and I’ve combined emotions on the outcomes.

My first 5 picks, so as, have been Tyreek Hill, Stefon Diggs, CeeDee Lamb, Julio Jones and Lamar Jackson. I went with Lamb over Amari Cooper in Spherical 3 with Cooper nonetheless coping with his ankle harm, however in any other case, these have been simple picks.

For essentially the most, I like this begin. All 4 receivers are starters on my group and ought to be nice if wholesome, and I’ve a star quarterback in Jackson. However Spherical 6 is the place the battle began, and it made me barely remorse this method. And it had nothing to do with the operating backs.

It was irritating once I noticed T.J. Hockenson and Kyle Pitts get chosen proper in entrance of me on the finish of Spherical 5. I had deliberate to draft a quarterback at this flip, however I additionally needed a kind of tight ends. In hindsight, I ought to have drafted Hockenson, Pitts or Mark Andrews in Spherical 4 as a substitute of Jones, and I might have chosen a special receiver in Spherical 6 like Kenny Golladay, JuJu Smith-Schuster or Courtland Sutton, amongst others.

I ended up with Blake Jarwin at tight finish in Spherical 14, and that is the one potential gap on this roster if Jarwin is not a top quality Fantasy possibility this 12 months. Whereas I like Jarwin as a sleeper, I’d have most popular a good finish with a better ceiling like Hockenson or Pitts.

Now, if you take a Zero RB method, the important thing to all of that is what you do at operating again. And I just like the group that I put along with Javonte Williams, Zack Moss, Melvin Gordon, Latavius Murray, Jamaal Williams and Samaje Perine. The Broncos backfield will hopefully ship one beginning Fantasy possibility out of Javonte Williams and Gordon (I desire Williams), and Moss ought to be a borderline starter as one of the best operating again for the Bills

Murray, Jamaal Williams and Perine are lottery tickets in case they get elevated workloads throughout the season, however I anticipate Murray and Williams to have outstanding roles on their groups and get sufficient work to be helpful if I’ve to start out them. The waiver wire can also be important to creating Zero RB work.

And if we have been taking part in out this league then I’d have commerce choices at receiver, particularly since I’ve two high quality reserves in Tre’Quan Smith and DeVante Parker. Smith is a strong sleeper with Michael Thomas (ankle) out to start the season with the Saints.

I most likely will not use Zero RB a lot this season as a result of vast receiver is so deep this 12 months. Most certainly, I am going to take a modified method with one operating again within the first two rounds. And that may most likely be the subsequent technique I take advantage of in our subsequent mock draft.

On this league, all touchdowns are value six factors, and we award one level for each 10 yards dashing and receiving and one level for each 25 yards passing. We additionally award one level for each reception. We characteristic a beginning lineup of QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, FLEX (RB/WR/TE) and DST. There are also six reserve spots for a 15-round draft.
