The Late-Round QB, 2020 Fantasy Football Mock Draft
Let’s make this quick. I did this mock draft, picking at No. 9 (12 team PPR) to purposely wait as late as I felt comfortable to take my starting quarterback.
Have I mentioned that I dislike the No. 9 slot a lot? Here goes the roster stack countdown to my late-round QB.
1.09 Miles Sanders, RB, Philadelphia Eagles
With seven RBs off the board, Sanders seemed like the best option versus pushing my luck to snag my RB1 in Round two.
2.04 Travis Kelce, TE, Kansas City Chiefs
Undeniably the top TE flying off draft boards, I passed on a WR and went for the beast. By the way, George Kittle was taken at 3.01 in case you are wondering.
3.09 Todd Gurley, RB, Atlanta Falcons
Gamble or not, I went with Gurley. If he stays healthy, he’s going to get a ton of touches in 2020 as a Falcon.
4.04 Cooper Kupp, WR, Los Angeles Rams
Not considered one of the ‘elite’ WRs, Kupp is still going to see a lot of targets. I love his past touchdown production and 2020 potential over that of Robert Woods’.
5.09 Jarvis Landry, WR, Cleveland Browns
Landry is a PPR stud having averaged 94 career receptions per season. It was a tough call between Landry and Terry McLaurin who got picked three turns later.
6.04 Raheem Mostert, RB, San Francisco 49ers
I debated between Mostert and Mark Ingram, who was selected one pick later. Hopefully, Mostert is the bell cow in 2020. Fingers crossed.
7.09 Julian Edelman, WR, New England Patriots
Have you seen how ripped Edelman is and how well he’s been gelling with Cam Newton? I like him a bunch as my WR3 or as a flex.
8.04 James White, RB, New England Patriots
The Patriots will surely remain keeping White involved in their passing game. From what I remember, Newton loved throwing to his favorite RB when with the Panthers.
9.09 Emmanuel Sanders, WR, New Orleans Saints
I’m excited to see Sanders as part of my favorite team’s offense. Let’s hope he stays healthy.
10.04 Tom Brady, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Finally, at Round 10, I went totally homer and grabbed Brady. It was so close between him and Matthew Stafford, who was the next QB taken a few picks later. For me, it came down to supporting cast and I prefer the Bucs’ weapons over the Lions’.
11.09 Jalen Reagor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles
My first rookie and a late-round gem who may be the only WR still standing in 2020 in Philly. We can’t trust DeSean Jackson or Alshon Jeffery to stay healthy.
12.04 Daniel Jones, QB, New York Giants
I love me some Danny Dimes and in the 12th round, heck yeah! He’s a great backup to Brady, or could be a starter if the GOAT goes downhill.
13.09 A.J. Dillon, RB, Green Bay Packers
Bench pickings are slim at this point. My rookie Dillon is a fabulous handcuff to Aaron Jones. Or, he could even receive a bigger role in combo with Jones.
14.04 Jack Doyle, TE, Indianapolis Colts
Some think backup TEs are silly, but Doyle’s number may be called. Any TE catching from Philip Rivers has upside in my book.
15.09 Dallas Cowboys Defense
I took Dallas with 11 other defenses off the board. Could do worse, or could do better. Could end up streaming. Who knows?
16.04 Matt Gay, K, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Obviously it’s time for a kicker at the last round. I prefer one who should be plenty busy on a high-scoring offense in that of Tompa Bay.
