Fantasy 14-team mock: Michael Fabiano's analysis Published: Jul 25, 2017 at 05:06 AM Michael Fabiano Another week, another mock draft... NFL Football held another mock spectacular this week, a 14-team PPR draft that included both in-house analysts and friends from other sites on the world wide web. As expected, 26 of the first 28 picks were either running backs or wideouts ( , were the "outsiders"), and all but four of the first 49 picks were from the two most important positions in fantasy land. The first quarterback, , wasn't selected until Round 4. That brings me to another trend that you're going to see in most standard-scoring fantasy drafts ... quarterback values continue to sink due to high supply and low demand. While quarterbacks score the most points in the world of , the position is so deep that even some well-known signal-callers were picked late or not at all. In fact, sleeper , , and were all left to the waiver wire! If this trend continues, we could see more and more leagues require two starting signal-callers in their weekly lineups. Anyway, here's a look at the team I drafted, and what I was thinking along the way per selection. The draft was 15 rounds and based on the NFL's standard scoring system (plus PPR), and none of the teams were required to draft a kicker or a defense (so Matt Belisle Jersey I didn't). That doesn't change the mock results much, as neither of those positions is worth more than a late-round (13-15) selection. To me, it makes a mock draft even more valuable in that there are more skill position players picked. At the end of the day, that's what we're looking for with these mocks ... where certain players (not a kicker or a defense) were chosen. Round 1, Pick 9 - , WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Yes, that's right ... I took a wide receiver (not a running back) in the first round. Evans, the No. 1 wideout based on fantasy points last season, should continue to produce at a high level even with the threat of a declined target share with and now in the pa s attack. Another 1,000-yard campaign should happen. Round 2, Pick 20 - , RB, Los Angeles Rams: Admittedly, I hesitated before making this selection. Gurley was a bust last season, and his backfield targets could decrease with on the roster. There wasn't another running back or a wide receiver I had ranked higher at this point though, so I pulled the trigger. Hopefully coach Sean McVay can kick start Gurley's production. Round 3, Pick 37 - , WR, Denver Broncos: Thomas is coming off his worst fantasy season since 2011, but he still finished 19th in points among wideouts. The return of offensive coordinator Mike McCoy should be a real positive for the veteran, however, so I'm projecting him to be at least somewhat better than he was compared to a season ago. I consider Thomas a solid No. 2 wideout. Round 4, Pick 48 - , WR, Pittsburgh Steelers: Wide receivers were flying off the board in the first three-plus rounds, leaving some depth Joe Carter Jersey at the running back position. As a result, I took a third wideout before a second runner in Bryant. Call him a breakout candidate or a sleeper, whatever you like, but the upside with this kid in what will be an explosive offense is huge. Round 5, Pick 65 - , RB Abraham Almonte Jersey , New York Jets: The decision to pa s on a running back in the previous round turned up all roses, as Powell fell to me with the 65th overall choice. While I realize he will share work with , Powell is the better fantasy option at this point and he's even more valuable in PPR formats. There's a good chance he'll catch 60-plus pa ses in the offense. Round 6, Pick 76 - , RB, Detroit Lions: When you look in the dictionary under "risk-reward running backs," there's a picture of Abdullah. He has the skill set to be a solid a set for owners, but injuries have kept him down at the NFL level. The didn't add an impact runner in the offseason, so Abdullah will once again have a chance to thrive as a featured back. Round 7, Pick 93 - , TE, Tenne see Titans: The did add and to what should be an improved pa s attack, but Walker will no doubt still see his share of chances. Over the last three seasons, the veteran ranks second in targets and third in receptions among all tight ends. He's also fourth in receiving yards and sixth in touchdown catches at the position. Round 8, Pick 104 , RB, Philadelphia Eagles: You could argue that Sproles is the most valuable fantasy running back in PPR leagues, but he tends to fall in drafts. That was the case here, as I landed him as a fourth back. Even in his earlier 30s, the elusive veteran has hauled in 40 or more pa ses in three straight seasons including a combined 107 in the last two NFL campaigns. Round 9, Pick 121 - , QB, Carolina Panthers: How far has Newton fallen? Well, some people were drafting him in the first round last season. Superman has lost some of the air under his cape now, but I don't mind taking a chance on him with the 121st overall selection. Furthermore, there wasn't a whole lot left among other offensive skill positions ... that also made me side with Newton. Round 10, Pick 132 - , WR Cody Allen Jersey , Philadelphia Eagles: Matthews has gone from a potential sleeper to a late-round flier in about a year's time. That's due in large part to the fact that the added both and to their pa s attack in the offseason. Regardle s of his decreased statistical ceiling, Matthews is still worth a flier at this point in drafts. Round 11, Pick 149 - , WR, New York Giants: With four running backs and four wideouts on the roster, it was time to take the best player available at one of those positions. I decided on Shepard, even though his target share as a rookie is destined to decrease with the additions of and . As I look back, I should have taken Robert Kelley at this spot. Round 12, Pick 160 - , QB, Dallas Cowboys: It's become ridiculous how far solid quarterbacks fall in drafts these days. I mean, Prescott was sixth in fantasy points among quarterbacks and eighth overall last season ... and the dude is sitting there in the 12th round of a 14-team league. It might be time to consider more two-quarterback and super-flex leagues! Round 13, Pick 177 - , RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: When you're in the late rounds of a deep league, your last few choices are the equivalent of fishing without any bait. You probably won't get anything good, and if you do it's simple to throw it back into the (player) pond. To his credit, Sims has a combined 75 receptions over the last two seasons as a committee back in Tampa Bay. Round 14, Pick 188 - , TE, Dallas Cowboys: Walker is the clear-cut No. 1 tight end on this particular fantasy roster, so Witten will fall into a replacement-level role. While the veteran's best fantasy seasons are in the rearview mirror, he still ranked eighth in targets (95) and sixth in receptions (69) at his position Michael Brantley Jersey in 2016. Witten is worth a late-round flier in most formats. Round 15, Pick 205 - defense/special teams: The defense almost always ranked among the top defensive units in , so I decided to grab the "Orange Crush" instead of another offensive skill position player or kicker. In most cases, however, I wouldn't draft either a kicker or a defense unle s it's required in your league's settings (which it shouldn't be!)
