Fantasy Football Mock Draft: FFPC Best Ball Picks (2024)

FFPC is one of the most well-established and well-known best ball platforms, offering a variety of contests typically in the higher stakes range. FFPC’s scoring format stands out from the crowd as they use TE-premium scoring, which helps put a different twist on the draft board and forces users to approach things differently. Using our mock draft simulator we can replicate the settings and quickly play around to see how drafts might unfold.

Fantasy Football Mock Draft: FFPC Best Ball Picks (2024)

Settings

  • Full Point Per Reception (PPR)
  • TE-Premium (additional 0.5 points per catch for tights ends)
  • 20-Round Drafts
  • Starting Roster: 1-QB, 2-RB, 2-WR, 1-TE, 2-Flex (Flex can be RB, WR or TE)

Round 1

The simulator randomly assigned me to pick second. There was a non-consensus pick with CeeDee Lamb at 1.01. It would have been easy to take the layup pick of Christian McCaffrey at 1.02. However, as he heads into his age-28 season, will he continue his remarkable run of health that has seen him miss only one game in the last two years? That’s the question drafters have to ask. In this reality, I can play out a McCaffrey fade and perhaps lean into a Tee Higgins trade narrative, pushing Ja’Marr Chase up to 1.02. If Higgins were to be traded it wouldn’t be shocking to see Chase go 1.01.

Rounds 2 & 3

We’ve seen Josh Allen continuously be a force of nature for fantasy football over the last couple of years and the opportunity to stack him up with his WR1 Stefon Diggs is too good to pass up. Diggs has been disappointing across the second half of the previous two seasons but he can still put up huge numbers and the Bills reportedly continue to view him as an integral piece of their new offense heading into 2024.

Rounds 4 & 5

Josh Jacobs was sniped a single pick before we got back on the clock, leaving us a host of RBs that don’t look appealing, so it’s time to lean into the Zero RB strategy that won big across a variety of contests in 2023. Keenan Allen is coming off a year where he led the league in targets per game (11.5) and should be the perfect outlet for Caleb Williams, both in and out of structure. Jaylen Waddle had a disappointing 2023, struggling through injury but he remains a high-ceiling player we want exposure to in best ball.

Rounds 6 & 7

Terry McLaurin looks set to finally have good quarterback play for the first time in several years, if the Commanders nail their pick in the draft. McLaurin has been a lock for 70 receptions and 1,000 yards for several years. Getting a receiver of that consistency in this area of the draft is more alluring than the running back options. Evan Engram becomes our TE1 in the seventh round, which is about as late as you’ll want to push it with tight ends more valuable in this format.

Rounds 8 & 9

After drafting zero running backs in the first seven rounds we’re pushing Zero RB to the limit. It’s time to start accumulating players who will see good volume. Zamir White finished 2023 on a tear with three top-16 finishes in a row. Now without Josh Jacobs in Vegas, White seems set to have the first crack at RB1 duties in an expected run-heavy offense. Devin Singletary is a fine ninth-round pick after landing on the Giants with a reasonable contract. Singletary is a tier down from Saquon Barkley, to say the least, but he showed well in 2023 when getting lots of volume in Houston.

Rounds 10 & 11

We’re not out of the woods at RB yet, so adding Gus Edwards makes plenty of sense with the Chargers referring to him as their workhorse. Edwards’ ceiling might not be the highest but you have to wonder who else will provide a spark among the Chargers in 2024. In Round 11, we’ve taken enough RBs to get back to picking the best player for our roster once more — Gabe Davis fits the bill, allowing us to build out a secondary stack of Jacksonville players.

Rounds 12 & 13

When Trevor Lawrence makes it back to us he’s an easy click, giving us two reliable starters at quarterback who won’t be challenged by backups anytime soon and also giving us two stacks that should help provide weekly spike weeks. Jake Ferguson is our second tight end, giving us two tight ends that see strong volume and aren’t solely reliable on touchdowns to score well.

Rounds 14 & 15

We’re back in the stacking business here, adding Curtis Samuel to our Buffalo stack and Zay Jones to our Jacksonville one. Neither player brings a lot of consistency but they are the types of receivers prone to popping up with good weeks occasionally. In best ball, that’s a good recipe.

Rounds 16-20

We round out the running back room with Justice Hill, Will Shipley and Deuce Vaughn, who give us a mix of roles and potential with Shipley’s rookie outcomes potentially quite wide on the spectrum. Andrei Iosivas of the Bengals is our last wide receiver, further playing into the leverage idea we started the draft with that if Tee Higgins is traded the Bengals will target other players heavily. The last pick of our draft is Hunter Henry, who has re-signed with the Patriots and is one of the few reliable pass-catchers left to help whichever rookie quarterback arrives in New England.

Review

This is a hardcore Zero RB team loaded at wide receiver and that has two nice team stacks and plenty of game theory in it. In hindsight, the RB room is very fragile and taking one more or a running back with a bigger guaranteed role might have helped alleviate any nerves about that section of the roster.
