Fantasy Football Mock Draft: 20 Teams, No. 11 Pick

As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. While we may not be able to draft a "perfect" fantasy football team, the more we practice, the better our teams will be.

Starting on June 10th, we began drafting (at least) one fantasy football team per day using the 2017 Fantasy Football Mock Draft Simulator and we will continue to do so up until the start of the 2017 NFL season.

Each day, we will switch things up -- e.g., PPR vs. standard scoring, league size, draft slot, 2-QB leagues, auction leagues, etc.

In addition, we will centralize links to our daily fantasy football mock drafts for an easy way to keep track of our mock drafts.

Details of today's mock draft:
  • Scoring: Standard Scoring (i.e., not PPR scoring)
  • # of Teams: 20
  • Draft Slot: 10
  • Roster Setup: QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, Flex (RB/WR/TE), K, DST, 6 Bench

With that said, here are the results of today's mock draft:

1.11 - Melvin Gordon, RB, Los Angeles Chargers: Lacking efficiency as a runner (3.9 YPC), Gordon just missed the 1,000-yard rushing mark, averaged 10.2 Y/R and scored 12 touchdowns in 13 games in 2016. If MG3 is able to stay healthy for a full season, new coach Anthony Lynn should help Gordon improve his efficiency and overall production in 2017.

2.10 - Doug Baldwin, WR, Seattle Seahawks: While Baldwin scored half as many touchdowns (seven) in 2016, he set career highs in both receptions (94) and yards (1,128) and has now finished as a top-10 fantasy wide receiver in back-to-back seasons. Another top-10 season should be within reach in 2017.

3.11 - Michael Crabtree, WR, Oakland Raiders: Along with Amari Cooper, Crabtree is part of one of the top wide receiver duos in the NFL. In both of his seasons in Oakland, Crabtree has a minimum of 85 catches, 900 yards and eight touchdowns each season and is coming off his first 1,000-yard season since 2012.

4.10 - Ameer Abdullah, RB, Detroit Lions: Missing all but two games last season due to a Lisfranc injury, Abdullah was off to a good start last year -- 18/101 (5.6 YPC) rushing and 5/57/1 (11.4 Y/R) receiving -- and there is definitely some fantasy breakout potential in 2017.

5.11 - Jeremy Maclin, WR, Baltimore Ravens: Coming off a disappointing season (44/536/2 in 12 games), Maclin had 172 catches for 2,406 yards and 18 touchdowns over the previous two seasons combined.

6.10 - Jameis Winston, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: A top-15 fantasy quarterback in each of his first two seasons, Winston has the potential to post his first top-10 fantasy season in 2017. Winston is the QB9 in my rankings and the 13th QB off the board in this mock.

7.11 - Jonathan Stewart, RB, Carolina Panthers: Stewart has missed at least three games in five consecutive seasons, has averaged less than 4.0 yards per carry in three of those five seasons including last year (3.8 YPC) and the Panthers selected Christian McCaffrey with the eighth overall pick. That said, I expect Stewart to lead the backfield in touches when healthy.

8.10 - Tyrell Williams, WR, Los Angeles Chargers: Williams had a breakout season in 2016 as he finished with 69 catches for 1,059 yards and seven touchdowns. With a healthy Keenan Allen, it will be nearly impossible for him to duplicate last year's numbers, but he offers depth as my WR4.

9.11 - Josh Doctson, WR, Washington Redskins: There should be plenty of opportunity for Doctson in 2017 with the offseason changes to the receiving corps.

10.10 - C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Houston Texans: As much as Houston's offense struggled last season, Fiedorowicz had an 11-game stretch with three-plus catches starting in Week 4 and set career highs across the board (54/559/4) in his third season.

11.11 - Kenny Stills, WR, Miami Dolphins: Re-signing with the Dolphins on a four-year deal, Stills finished 2016 with 42 catches for 726 yards (17.3 Y/R) and nine touchdowns.

12.10 - Donnel Pumphrey, RB, Philadelphia Eagles: The presence of Darren Sproles means that Pumphrey's 2017 impact should be less than 2018, but he provides some value and depth as the 230th overall pick.

13.11 - Joe Flacco, QB, Baltimore Ravens: Only Drew Brees (673) threw more pass attempts than Flacco (672) last season. That said, Flacco set or tied career lows in both Y/A (6.4) and TD% (3.0) in 2016. It should help that he's another year removed from his torn ACL and the addition of Maclin to the receiving corps gives Flacco a boost.

14.10 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers DST

15.11 - Cairo Santos, K, Kansas City Chiefs
