2017 expert fantasy football mock draft: 14-team, PPR

It's coming.

No, not winter in "Game of Thrones." (But seriously, how great is it to have GoT back on our TVs every Sunday night?) I'm talking about football season. Our long walk in the darkness without football soon comes to a close. As of the publishing of this article we're a mere 50 days from the kickoff game of the 2017 season -- Chiefs at Patriots.

That's crazy. Seriously, where did summer go? As usual, with the season bearing down on me I feel like I haven't done enough during the offseason. Oh well, this is all for you anyway -- our loyal readers. In that spirit, rather than travel or go to the beach, I rounded up 13 fantasy analysts and completed a full mock draft just for you all. Don't say I never did anything for you! (By the way, you can join a mock right now on NFL.com by clicking here).

The PPR scoring, 14-team, 15-round mock draft consisted of our best analysts, writers and producers from NFL Fantasy LIVE/NFL.com, as well as special guests Liz Loza (yahoo.com), Patrick Daugherty (Rotoworld.com), TJ Hernandez (4for4.com) and Graham Barfield (FantasyGuru.com). Teams did not need to draft a full roster, so several teams went without a kicker or defense. I provide some brief thoughts about most rounds below. Be sure to let us know who had the best team or how bad our teams are on Twitter (profiles linked below).

Now, with that out of the way, let's get to it.

  1. Le'Veon Bell, Steelers (RB1) - Rank
    1. David Johnson, Cardinals (RB2) - Harmon
    2. Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys (RB3) - Frelund
    3. Antonio Brown, Steelers (WR1) - Money
    4. LeSean McCoy, Bills (RB4) - Loza
    5. Odell Beckham Jr., Giants (WR2) - Franchise
    6. Julio Jones, Falcons (WR3) - Daugherty
    7. A.J. Green, Bengals (WR4) - Koh
    8. Mike Evans, Buccaneers (WR5) - Fabiano
    9. Melvin Gordon, Chargers (RB5) - Barfield
    10. Jay Ajayi, Dolphins (RB6) - Gelhar
    11. DeMarco Murray, Titans (RB7) - Grant
    12. Devonta Freeman, Falcons (RB8) - Milner
    13. Michael Thomas, Saints (WR6) - Hernandez

As usual, there weren't too many surprises in Round 1. The usual suspects all came off the board, though it is worth noting that running backs outnumbered wide receivers in the opening frame of this PPR mock eight to six. With committee backfields becoming more in vogue than ever, this speaks to the value of the truly elite workhorse backs who are also capable pass-catchers out of the backfield. Drafters likely realized if they didn't get one now, they wouldn't be getting one in Round 2 given the size of this draft.

Favorite pick: It's the first round, come on
Biggest surprise: See above.


  1. Jordy Nelson, Packers (WR7) - Hernandez
    1. T.Y. Hilton, Colts (WR8) - Milner
    2. Jordan Howard, Bears (RB9) - Grant
    3. Doug Baldwin, Seahawks (WR9) - Gelhar
    4. Dez Bryant, Cowboys (WR10) - Barfield
    5. Todd Gurley, Rams (RB10) - Fabiano
    6. DeAndre Hopkins, Texans (WR11) - Koh
    7. Joe Mixon, Bengals (RB11) - Daugherty
    8. Rob Gronkowski, Patriots (TE1) - Franchise
    9. Travis Kelce, Chiefs (TE2) - Loza
    10. Amari Cooper, Raiders (WR12) - Money
    11. Terrelle Pryor, Redskins (WR13) - Frelund
    12. Allen Robinson, Jaguars (WR14) - Harmon
    13. Brandin Cooks, Patriots (WR15) - Rank

Already in Round 2 things start to get a bit weird. Daugherty stakes his claim on Joe Mixon in the middle of the round, a pick that could be a game-changer if Mixon runs away with the featured role in Cincinnati's backfield as many expect. An odd tight end run came right after that pick as well, but I totally understand the reasoning. Rob Gronkowski, when healthy, is essentially a top-10 fantasy wide receiver but plays TE, while Travis Kelce is coming off a career year (85 rec, 1,125 yards, four touchdowns) and just had his team's No. 1 wide receiver get cut this offseason. He could push for 100 catches this year.

Favorite pick:Terrelle Pryor, 26th overall -- Count me among the Pryor believers. I love Cynthia chasing his ceiling at this point in this huge league.
Biggest surprise:Todd Gurley, 20th overall -- If he maintains his passing game work, this is fine, but there are rumors Sean McVay wants to turn Lance Dunbar into his West Coast version of Chris Thompson.


  1. Tyreek Hill, Chiefs (WR16) - Rank
    1. Ty Montgomery, Packers (RB12) - Harmon
    2. Jarvis Landry, Dolphins (WR17) - Frelund
    3. Leonard Fournette, Jaguars (RB13) - Money
    4. Keenan Allen, Chargers (WR18) - Loza
    5. Sammy Watkins, Bills (WR19) - Franchise
    6. Jamison Crowder, Redskins (WR20) - Daugherty
    7. Christian McCaffrey, Panthers (RB14) - Koh
    8. Demaryius Thomas, Broncos (WR21) - Fabiano
    9. Jordan Reed, Redskins (TE3) - Barfield
    10. Golden Tate, Lions (WR22) - Gelhar
    11. Michael Crabtree, Raiders (WR23) - Grant
    12. Isaiah Crowell, Browns (RB15) - Milner
    13. Alshon Jeffery, Eagles (WR24) - Hernandez

It's no surprise that in only two short rounds the tides quickly turned on the RB-WR divide in this draft. And there's a lot to like in this round. Jamison Crowder might surprise some, but he's a chain-moving PPR machine in an offense that watched over 200 targets leave in free agency. I wanted Demaryius Thomas with my pick but was more than happy to have Golden Tate fall to me as a consolation prize. Tate averages over 93 catches per year since joining Detroit and could see more work in the red zone in 2017 with Anquan Boldin and his 22 RZ targets out of the picture. Jordan Reed is a fantastic pick for Barfield if he stays healthy for most of the year (never a guarantee). For the most part, I thought this was a strong round across the board.

Favorite pick:Ty Montgomery, 30th overall -- Seeing him drafted as an RB1 warms my heart. Spare me your @s with Jamaal Williams takes, please. Montgomery will lead the Packers backfield in 2017.
Biggest surprise:Christian McCaffrey, 36th overall -- This is the best sign of how PPR changes a draft, as Koh took a player he's routinely poo-poo'd in standard formats at his elevated ADP. McCaffrey could be an absolute monster in PPR, though.


  1. Stefon Diggs, Vikings (WR25) - Hernandez
    1. Pierre Garcon, 49ers (WR26) - Milner
    2. Greg Olsen, Panthers (TE4) - Grant
    3. Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals (WR27) - Gelhar
    4. Davante Adams, Packers (WR28) - Barfield
    5. Martavis Bryant, Steelers (WR29) - Fabiano
    6. Aaron Rodgers, Packers (QB1) - Koh
    7. Lamar Miller, Texans (RB16) - Daugherty
    8. Tom Brady, Patriots (QB2) - Franchise
    9. Marshawn Lynch, Raiders (RB17) - Loza
    10. Spencer Ware, Chiefs (RB18) - Money
    11. Emmanuel Sanders, Broncos (WR30) - Frelund
    12. Julian Edelman, Patriots (WR31) - Harmon
    13. Dalvin Cook, Vikings (RB19) - Rank

Don't sleep on Pierre Garcon in fantasy this year -- especially in PPR. He'll have little competition for targets in San Francisco and could honestly push for 100 catches and 1,100 yards. Touchdowns might be harder to come by, but those are great numbers for the WR26, especially in PPR. Marshawn Lynch falls a bit seeing as this is a PPR league, but if he stays healthy it's hard not to see him reaching close to 1,000 yards and double-digit touchdowns in the high-octane Raiders offense.

Favorite pick:Stefon Diggs, 43rd overall -- I really, really, really wanted Diggs to fall to me. Curse you, TJ.
Biggest surprise:Davante Adams, 47th overall -- With several presumably safer PPR wideouts still on the board, this surprised me a bit, but Barfield could have three double-digit TD pass-catchers with Bryant/Reed/Adams.


  1. Willie Snead, Saints (WR32) - Rank
    1. Donte Moncrief, Colts (WR33) - Harmon
    2. Kyle Rudolph, Vikings (TE5) - Frelund
    3. Danny Woodhead, Ravens (RB20) - Money
    4. Jeremy Maclin, Ravens (WR34) - Loza
    5. Carlos Hyde, 49ers (RB21) - Franchise
    6. Drew Brees, Saints (QB3) - Daugherty
    7. Samaje Perine, Redskins (RB22) - Koh
    8. Bilal Powell, Jets (RB23) - Fabiano
    9. Eddie Lacy, Seahawks (RB24) - Barfield
    10. Paul Perkins, Giants (RB25) - Gelhar
    11. Tevin Coleman, Falcons (RB26) - Grant
    12. Theo Riddick, Lions (RB27) - Milner
    13. Mark Ingram, Saints (RB28) - Hernandez

Normally, I'd put Willie Snead as my favorite, but Danny Woodhead was also picked in this round so I have to keep that bit alive (and I LOVE Money's Woodhead pick FWIW). Rank was feeling the need for Snead and put the rest of the draft into a full-blown tilt, as several people wanted Snead this round (especially Harmon). Snead has seen over 100 targets in each of his first two seasons (69, 72 receptions, respectively) and should inherit plenty more with Brandin Cooks now a member of the Patriots. A breakout campaign feels imminent, and his ceiling climbs even higher if he ends up more involved near the red zone.

As for the rest of the round, whew what a run on running backs. I am not in love with my Paul Perkins pick, but I preferred his upside as a potential featured back over the clear committee players that went right after him, including Tevin Coleman, Theo Riddick and Mark Ingram.

Favorite pick: DANNY WOODHEAD OBVIOUSLY, 60th overall
Biggest surprise:Eddie Lacy, 66th overall -- Not trying to pick on Graham here with back-to-back "biggest surprise" nod (he's seriously a great fantasy mind and you all need to follow him), but I simply expected Lacy to fall a bit further given the current backfield situation in Seattle. If Lacy wins the starting gig outright, though, this pick is a steal.


  1. C.J. Anderson, Broncos (RB29) - Hernandez
    1. Cameron Meredith, Bears (Wr35) - Milner
    2. Eric Decker, Titans (WR36) - Grant
    3. Frank Gore, Colts (RB30) - Gelhar
    4. DeSean Jackson, Buccaneers (WR37) - Barfield
    5. Ameer Abdullah, Lions (RB31) - Fabiano
    6. LeGarrette Blount, Eagles (RB32) - Koh
    7. Doug Martin, Buccaneers (RB33) - Daugherty
    8. Mike Gillislee, Patriots (RB34) - Franchise
    9. Russell Wilson, Seahawks (QB4) - Loza
    10. Jimmy Graham, Seahawks (TE6) - Money
    11. Corey Davis, Titans (WR38) - Frelund
    12. Tyler Eifert, Bengals (TE7) - Harmon
    13. Martellus Bennett, Packers (TE8) - Rank

Wide receivers REALLY thinned out by this point. Eric Decker joining the Titans has certainly muddled their wide receiving corps, but of that group he's the one I'd target the most in drafts. His red-zone prowess and veteran knowledge should help him soak up targets and return value. Cameron Meredith is a strong breakout pick this late for Milner. DeSean Jackson as the WR37 seems like highway robbery, though his value certainly takes a bit of a hit in PPR formats. I passed on a tight end in this round and paid for it when a run happened several picks later. I love all three of those guys this year. Speaking of love, glad to see Loza nabbing Russell Wilson as the QB4. Yes, he disappointed last year but that was behind a paper mache offensive line while he was also battling back from numerous leg injuries. With his pass attempts consistently rising each year, he should bounce back to the upper echelon of fantasy signal-callers in 2017.

Favorite pick:Doug Martin, 78th overall -- Sure, he'll miss the first three games and isn't guaranteed to win back the starting job, but man that has tremendous upside as we close in on 100 picks in this mock.
Biggest surprise:Mike Gillislee, 79th overall -- I'm more surprised Franchise bypassed his boy C.J. Prosise for Gillislee considering this is PPR (and Prosise went early in the next round).


  1. John Brown, Cardinals (WR39) - Rank
    1. Adrian Peterson, Saints (RB35) - Harmon
    2. C.J. Prosise, Seahawks (RB36) - Frelund
    3. Andrew Luck, Colts (QB5) - Money
    4. Kareem Hunt, Chiefs (RB37) - Loza
    5. Kelvin Benjamin, Panthers (WR40) - Franchise
    6. Jack Doyle, Colts (TE9) - Daugherty
    7. Marvin Jones, Lions (WR41) - Koh
    8. Delanie Walker, Titans (TE10) - Fabiano
    9. Mike Wallace, Ravens (WR42) - Barfield
    10. Adam Thielen, Vikings (WR43) - Gelhar
    11. Kenny Britt, Browns (WR44) - Grant
    12. Randall Cobb, Packers (WR45) - Milner
    13. Tyrell Williams, Chargers (WR46) - Hernandez

Harmon coined the end of this round "truther's alley," which is an apt title for the run on wide receivers that transpired. Adam Thielen, Kenny Britt and DeVante Parker (the first pick in the next round), all have flashed excellent talent, but are no guarantees to deliver in fantasy this year. For one reason or another, each carries some risk. Nevertheless, they all have ardent supporters across the interwebs. Personally, I was very pleased to land Thielen here in PPR. With Michael Floyd now suspended for the first few games, Diggs and Thielen should form a potent 1-2 punch in the passing game for the Vikings.

Favorite pick:Kelvin Benjamin, 90th overall -- Last I checked Benjamin is still the No. 1 wide receiver for the Panthers and he's received 26.6 and 20.9 percent of the team targets in his two healthy seasons. That's great value as the WR40.
Biggest surprise:Andrew Luck, 88th overall -- Has Money's long-term fantasy love affair with Drew Brees finally come to a close? Obviously, Brees went a few rounds earlier, but it still doesn't sit right with me to not see Brees on a Matt "Money" Smith roster.


  1. DeVante Parker, Dolphins (WR47) - Hernandez
    1. Kenneth Dixon, Ravens (RB38) - Milner
    2. Matt Ryan, Falcons (QB6) - Grant
    3. Quincy Enunwa, Jets (WR48) - Gelhar
    4. Matt Forte, Jets (RB39) - Barfield
    5. Darren Sproles, Eagles (RB40) - Fabiano
    6. Corey Coleman, Browns (WR49) - Koh
    7. Zay Jones, Bills (WR50) - Daugherty
    8. Kenny Stills, Dolphins (WR51) - Franchise
    9. Robert Woods, Rams (WR52) - Loza
    10. Joe Williams, 49ers (RB41) - Money
    11. Marcus Mariota, Titans (QB7) - Frelund
    12. Brandon Marshall, Giants (WR53) - Harmon
    13. Duke Johnson, Browns (RB42) - Rank

A few crazy values in this round. Matt Forte is approaching "older than dirt" status, but like that guy in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" he's "not dead yet!" The Jets should target their backs a ton and Forte could prove to be a steal if he has anything left in the tank as his illustrious career nears its conclusion. Likewise, Darren Sproles was a savvy pick by Fabiano. The NFL's best jitterbug back won't approach the heights of his PPR career back in New Orleans, but averaging over 51 receptions a year in Philly is nothing to turn your nose up at. I also dug the Kenny Stills, Robert Woods and Joe Williams picks. Stills could beat out DeVante Parker for the No. 2 job in Miami, Woods could see a billion targets in the Rams new-look offense, and Williams has a chance to pilfer the starting gig away from Carlos Hyde in San Fran.

Favorite pick:Corey Coleman, 105th overall -- Injuries are a concern but the upside is tremendous.
Biggest surprise:Matt Ryan, 101st overall -- I'm sure Ryan will be good in 2017, but I feel there were better fantasy quarterbacks still on the board ... like the one Cynthia took nine picks later.


  1. James White, Patriots (RB43) - Rank
    1. Derrick Henry, Titans (RB44) - Harmon
    2. Will Fuller, Texans (WR54) - Frelund
    3. *Mike Williams, Chargers (WR55) - Money
    4. Shane Vereen, Giants (RB45) - Loza
    5. Alvin Kamara, Saints (RB46) - Franchise
    6. Hunter Henry, Chargers (TE11) - Daugherty
    7. Chris Thompson, Redskins (RB47) - Koh
    8. Cam Newton, Panthers (QB8) - Fabiano
    9. Eric Ebron, Lions (TE12) - Barfield
    10. Jonathan Stewart, Panthers (RB48) - Gelhar
    11. Latavius Murray, Vikings (RB49) - Grant
    12. Julius Thomas, Dolphins (TE13) - Milner
    13. Zach Ertz, Eagles (TE14) - Hernandez

There are several really nice PPR selections in this round. James White, Chris Thompson and Shane Vereen should all be heavily targeted out of the backfield, and Alvin Kamara could see that type of role as a rookie, though his path to touches features more road blocks. Hunter Henry and Eric Ebron are great high-upside, late-round tight ends, while Hernandez won the month of December in this fake draft with his Zach Ertz pick. I begrudgingly took Jonathan Stewart, who will probably catch all of seven passes this year. However, he should see plenty of carries and could even be featured around the goal-line with Mike Tolbert gone and Cam Newton possibly running less. He'll be a fine bench/rotational back for my squad.

Ed. note: The draft was held before news of Mike Williams' back injury was made public.

Favorite pick:James White, 113th overall
Biggest surprise:Julius Thomas, 125th overall


  1. DeAndre Washington, Raiders (RB50) - Hernandez
    1. Rishard Matthews, Titans (WR56) - Milner
    2. Terrance West, Ravens (RB51) - Grant
    3. Coby Fleener, Saints (TE15) - Gelhar
    4. Kirk Cousins, Redskins (QB9) - Barfield
    5. Jordan Matthews, Eagles (WR57) - Fabiano
    6. Darren McFadden, Cowboys (RB52) - Koh
    7. Jamaal Charles, Broncos (RB53) - Daugherty
    8. Jamaal Williams, Packers (RB54) - Franchise
    9. Breshad Perriman, Ravens (WR58) - Loza
    10. Antonio Gates, Chargers (TE16) - Money
    11. Rob Kelley, Redskins (RB55) - Frelund
    12. Tyler Lockett, Seahawks (WR59) - Harmon
    13. Jameis Winston, Buccaneers (QB10) - Rank

This will be my last round of analysis the rest of the way since, well, just look at the picks. We're reaching the bottom of the barrel here. If you have specific questions, hit the drafter up on Twitter (all of their accounts are linked above).

I'm never thrilled to draft Coby Fleener, but as the TE15 in an offense with a bunch of vacated targets, I'll take him as a late-round band-aid. We say this all the time, but wait to draft your quarterback, folks. Kirk Cousins and Jameis Winston falling to picks 131 and 140 is simply outrageous value. Especially when you consider how they'll finish at their position compared to the rest of the players selected in this round.

Favorite pick:Terrance West, 129th overall
Biggest surprise:Rob Kelley, 138th overall -- I know he's a likely two-down back who could lose his starting gig to a rookie, but Round 10 in a 14-team league is ridiculously low for him, especially since a few handcuffs went before him!


  1. Curtis Samuel, Panthers (RB56) - Rank
    1. Jonathan Williams, Bills (RB57) - Harmon
    2. John Ross, Bengals (WR60) - Frelund
    3. Kevin White, Bears (WR61) - Money
    4. James Conner, Steelers (RB58) - Loza
    5. Cole Beasley, Cowboys (WR62) - Franchise
    6. Josh Doctson, Redskins (WR63) - Daugherty
    7. Chris Conley, Chiefs (WR64) - Koh
    8. Sterling Shepard, Giants (WR65) - Fabiano
    9. D'Onta Foreman, Texans (RB59) - Barfield
    10. Tyrod Taylor, Bills (QB11) - Gelhar
    11. Tavon Austin, Rams (WR66) - Grant
    12. Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers (QB12) - Milner
    13. Jacquizz Rodgers, Buccaneers (RB60) - Hernandez

Favorite pick:James Conner, 145th overall -- Some nice handcuff picks went in this round, but the Conner pick by Loza could be MASSIVE if Le'Veon Bell misses any time, which has been a recurring theme for him the last few seasons.
Biggest surprise:Curtis Samuel, 141st overall


  1. Thomas Rawls, Seahawks (RB61) - Hernandez
    1. Rex Burkhead, Patriots (RB62) - Milner
    2. Jeremy Hill, Bengals (RB63) - Grant

    9. Robby Anderson, Jets (WR72) - Loza
    10. Giovani Bernard, Bengals (RB64) - Money
    11. Kansas City Chiefs D/ST (DEF1) - Frelund
    12. Andy Dalton, Bengals (QB14) - Harmon
    13. Derek Carr, Raiders (QB15) - Rank

Favorite pick:Robby Anderson, 164th overall -- Someone else has to catch passes for the Jets, right? RIGHT?!?!
Biggest surprise: Jeremy Hill/Giovani Bernard, 157th/165th overall -- Oh, how the mighty have fallen.


  1. Torrey Smith, Eagles (WR73) - Rank
    1. J.J. Nelson, Cardinals (WR74) - Harmon
    2. Tim Hightower, 49ers (RB65) - Frelund

    11. Cameron Brate, Buccaneers (TE17) - Grant
    12. Devontae Booker, Broncos (RB71) - Milner
    13. Matthew Stafford, Lions (QB17) - Hernandez

Favorite pick:Kamar Aiken, 178th overall
Biggest surprise:Matthew Stafford, 182nd overall -- Stafford falling to QB17 is a bit silly if you ask me.

    11. Stephen Gostkowski, Patriots (K2) - Frelund
    12. Lance Dunbar, Rams (RB74) - Harmon
    13. New England Patriots D/ST (DEF3) - Rank

Favorite pick:Austin Hooper, 189th overall
Biggest surprise:Ryan Mathews, 184th overall -- He might be done with football if his neck injury prevents him from clearing team physicals.
