Fantasy football summit mock draft: 10-team PPR – ESPN

At the conclusion of our annual Fantasy Football Rankings Summit, we conducted a PPR (point-per-reception) mock draft among 10 of the attendees. Here are a handful of takeaways, followed by the round-by-round selections:

  • There appears to be a clear top three at running back, as Le’Veon Bell, David Johnson and Ezekiel Elliott all went in the first four picks before seven straight receivers came off the board.

  • Rob Gronkowski didn’t go as early as the previous two years, but he still was a top-20 pick, despite the fact that he’s coming off back surgery.

  • As is often the case in our staff drafts, the wait on quarterbacks lasted a while. Aaron Rodgers was the first to go, but just barely inside the top 40.

  • One owner even waited until the final round to take a signal-caller, and wound up with someone who finished top-five at the position in 2016.

In order of draft position, the participants in this mock were: Field Yates, Aaron Schatz, Ken Daube, Stephania Bell, Eric Karabell, Jim McCormick, KC Joyner, Matthew Berry, Matt Bowen and Mike Clay.
