Andrew Erickson Live PPR Mock Draft Board
Erickson went WR-WR to start, doubled up at running back in Rounds 3 and 4, and double dipped again on WR in Rounds 5 and 6 before taking his first quarterback in Round 7.
Here’s how the entire draft played out.
Andrew Erickson Recap & Analysis
I started out the draft going with my No-1 ranked Justin Jefferson as my first pick. It’s full PPR so I think any of the Big 3 WRs – Jefferson, Kupp or Chase – are fair game in Round 1.
Ideally, I would have gone with an RB next – but the Draft Wizard directed me to Mike Evans. Evans should smash without Godwin to start next season, but I’ll admit I had some buyer’s remorse. Saquon Barkley might have been the better option
After going WR-WR, I went RB-RB for the next two picks. I still think James Conner is a value in Round 3 with a bell-cow role set in Arizona. And Travis Etienne Jr. looks like a major breakout candidate with an explosive pass-catching skill set and James Robinson rehabbing an Achilles injury.
I promise you guys. You will not regret drafting Hollywood Brown in Round 5. At least for the first six weeks of the season. The dude will get absolutely floored with targets to open the year in a pass-heavy offense.
Round 6 has often been the area I am willing to “reach” on a top-tier quarterback. But in this particular draft, both Kyler Murray and Jalen Hurts fell into Round 7. Unfortunately, two savvy drafters ahead of me scooped up both guys right before my selection. I was forced to “settle” on a 45-year-old quarterback to stack with Evans.
The best-kept secret in all of fantasy football? 2021’s TE3 in fantasy points per game, Rob Gronkowski. Round 10 with the Buccaneers optimistic he returns? Yes, please. And if not? Just pick up one of the many potential late-round tight ends that go undrafted.
