Fantasy football season is getting closer and closer. Every year millions of people play fantasy and with that comes the prep work to make sure that every draft is one that can produce a champion. This article will go through show what happened an ESPN fantasy football mock draft and analyze the results. This is for a 10 team, standard scoring league. Here is the 2020 fantasy football mock draft June 30.
Team number one had the first pick, pick number 20, 21, etc. The teams following this one will follow the draft order.
Roster: QB Tom Brady, RB Christian McCaffrey, RB Raheem Mostert, WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR Marquise Brown, TE Travis Kelce, RB James Conner, Steelers D/ST, K Chris Boswell, RB David Montgomery, RB Mark Ingram, WR Will Fuller, WR Emmanuel Sanders, RB Alexander Mattison, TE Hayden Hurst, QB Ben Roethlisberger
Team 1 has solid depth, but may not have be able to score enough points to make the playoffs. With Christian McCaffrey on the roster, they’ll have a chance, but the other running backs and wide receivers aren’t stars. Travis Kelce is a great tight end, but picking him may leave this team looking for p
Roster: QB Deshaun Watson, RB Kenyan Drake, RB Le’Veon Bell, WR Michael Thomas, WR Kenny Golladay, TE Evan Engram, WR Calvin Ridley, Bills D/ST, K Jake Elliot, WR DeVante Parker, RB Darrell Henderson, WR Darius Slayton, WR Golden Tate, WR Mike Williams, WR N’Keal Harry, QB Daniel Jones
This team can compete for the playoffs. They have a top-tier quarterback, two WR1s and running backs that will get enough carries to be valuable. The running back depth will be an issue, but if this team stays relatively healthy, they can make the playoffs.
Roster: QB Matt Ryan, RB Saquon Barkley, RB Miles Sanders, WR Odell Beckham, WR Robert Woods, TE Darren Waller, RB Austin Ekeler, 49ers D/ST, K Zane Gonzalez, WR DJ Chark, RB Ke’Shawn Vaughn, RB Jordan Howard, WR Christian Kirk, QB Josh Allen, RB JK Dobbins, TE Chris Herndon
This is another team that will be competing for a playoff spot. With Saquon Barkley, Miles Sanders and Austin Ekeler, they have the running backs to compete. The wide receivers are a little hit or miss, but if matchups are played correctly team 3 will be in the hunt for the playoffs.
Roster: QB Aaron Rodgers, RB Ezekiel Elliot, RB Joe Mixon, WR Amari Cooper, WR AJ Brown, TE Eric Ebron, WR Keenan Allen, Patriots D/ST, K Matt Gay, RB Devin Singletary, RB Cam Akers, WR Julian Edelman, RB Kerryon Johnson, WR Henry Ruggs, RB Matt Breida, WR Justin Jefferson
This is another team that will be hunting for the playoffs. Team 4 has a good mix of running back production in Ezekiel Elliot and Joe Mixon, along with some good wide receivers in Amari Cooper, AJ Brown and Keenan Allen. Add Aaron Rodgers on top of that and Team 4 is as solid as any.
Roster: QB Dak Prescott, RB Alvin Kamara, RB Josh Jacobs, WR Allen Robinson, WR Tyler Lockett, TE Tyler Higbee, RB David Johnson, Ravens D/ST, K Robbie Gould, WR AJ Green, RB Sony Michel, WR Diontae Johnson, WR Preston Williams WR DeSean Jackson, WR CeeDee Lamb, TE Austin Hooper
Dak Prescott and the running backs will have to carry Team 5. Prescott is routinely among the best fantasy quarterbacks in the league, while Alvin Kamara is looking for a bounce-back year. Josh Jacobs had a good rookie season to build off of this year. The thing that may leave this team out of the playoffs is that they don’t have a true WR1, even if Allen Robinson and Tyler Lockett are solid.
Roster: QB Russell Wilson, RB Derrick Henry, RB Nick Chubb, WR DJ Moore, WR DK Metcalf, TE Mark Andrews, RB Todd Gurley, Broncos D/ST, K Matt Prater, WR Marvin Jones, RB Marlon Mack, RB James White, WR John Brown, WR Jalen Reagor, RB Latavius Murray, RB Nyheim Hines
Team 6 has an elite quarterback in Russell Wilson and two great running backs in Derrick Henry and Nick Chubb. That will help them win games, but what could make them drop a few games is their lack of a WR1. DJ Moore is promising, but has a new quarterback. DK Metcalf will be splitting targets with a few other pass-catchers in Seattle. If Moore and Metcalf play better than last season, the team has a chance to make the playoffs.
Roster: QB Carson Wentz, RB Dalvin Cook, RB Leonard Fournette, WR Chris Godwin, WR Terry McLaurin, TE George Kittle, WR Jarvis Landry, Colts D/ST, K Will Lutz, WR Stefon Diggs, RB Kareem Hunt, WR Jamison Crowder, TE Jared Cook, WR Jerry Jeudy, WR Mecole Hardman, RB Damien Williams
This team took George Kittle early, which is a good choice, but will leave them a little thinner at other positions. Chris Godwin will need to fight off Mike Evans for targets again this season, while Terry McLaurin will need to show he can repeat his performance from his rookie year and stay healthy. Health is a huge issue for this team, as Carson Wentz and Dalvin Cook both have history with injuries. One injury to Cook or Wentz and this team will not be in contention for the playoffs.
Roster: QB Kyler Murray, RB Aaron Jones, RB Jonathan Taylor, WR DeAndre Hopkins, WR Adam Thielen, TE Zach Ertz, WR Courtland Sutton, Saints D/ST, K Greg Zuerlein, WR Michael Gallup, RB Zack Moss, RB Phillip Lindsay, WR Robbie Anderson, WR Curtis Samuel, WR Breshad Perriman, TE Mike Gesicki
Team 8 has as stacked of a starting lineup as any team in this mock draft. Kyler Murray is coming off a great rookie season and now has great targets around him, including DeAndre Hopkins, one of the best fantasy receivers every year, who happens to be on this team. Aaron Jones broke free last year and led the NFL in rushing touchdowns. He may not have as good of a season this year, but will still be solid. Jonathan Taylor, Adam Thielen and Zach Ertz are all great in their respective roles on this team and Courtland Sutton is a great flex option. Depth could be the only issue for this team.
Roster: QB Patrick Mahomes, RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB D’Andre Swift, WR Julio Jones, WR Mike Evans, TE Rob Gronkowski, WR TY Hilton, Bears D/ST, K Justin Tucker, RB Ronald Jones, RB Derrius Guice, RB Tarik Cohen, WR Deebo Samuel, QB Drew Brees, WR Sammy Watkins, RB Tevin Coleman
Team 9 will be relying on Mahomes and the wide receivers to carry the team. Julio Jones and Mike Evans gives this team the best one-two punch at receiver in the league, while Hilton will be solid as a flex. Mahomes will have a great season, as usual, but Edwards-Helaire and D’Andre Swift are unproven. This team needs a trade to get a proven workhorse running back.
Roster: QB Lamar Jackson, RB Chris Carson, RB Melvin Gordon, WR Davante Adams, WR Tyreek Hill, TE Hunter Henry, WR Cooper Kupp, Vikings D/ST, K Harrison Butker, WR Tyler Boyd, WR Sterling Shepard, WR Brandin Cooks, TE Noah Fant, TE TJ Hockenson, WR Michael Pittman, RB Boston Scott
This is another team that will need to be carried by the quarterback and wide receivers. With Chris Carson and Melvin Gordon likely to be in time-share backfields and only one other running back on the team, it will be a huge downfall for this team. Luckily this team has Lamar Jackson, who will light up the scoreboard. They also have a great duo of their own in Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill at wide receiver. Both players need to stay healthy for this team, but at least they have depth at the position.
