Fantasy Football Mock Draft: Michael Pittman Jr, C.J. Stroud, Devin Singletary (2024)

Fantasy Football Mock Draft: Michael Pittman Jr, C.J. Stroud, Devin Singletary (2024)

Fantasy football mock drafting in April gives us a chance to get a leg up on our competition. While they are either taking time away from football or focusing on baseball, we can test different strategies and pay closer attention to the ebbs and flows of average draft positions (ADPs).

I did a 12-team PPR mock draft where I drafted out of the second spot. This was a tough room for it being a mock as I was put into what I would describe as an uncomfortable position with my 2.11 selection. A few things stood out:

  • Running backs flew off the board. By the time I was up in the second round, there wasn’t a running back I was comfortable taking.
  • Quarterbacks went early and often, representing the shift in scoring to the passing game right now.
  • Rooke ADPs are still fluid and will likely change by the beginning of May.

Let’s get to the picks, analysis and a consideration of who I also may have taken at that specific selection. If you want to see the entire draft results and draft board, here it is in all its glory. Here is my full pick-by-pick analysis. And below we dive into a few notable picks.

12-Team PPR Mock Draft

Pick 3.02 – Michael Pittman Jr. (WR – IND)

Michal Pittman Jr. is one of my favorite targets in the third round. He is coming off the best season of his career with 109 catches for 1,152 yards. The touchdowns (4) were a little thin but those are fluky. In PPR, I would rather bank on the 145 targets. The Colts should have plenty of firepower with a healthy Anthony Richardson and Jonathan Taylor, which will, hopefully, give Pittman more opportunities in the red zone.

Also Considered: Mike Evans (WR – TB), Marvin Harrison Jr. (WR – Ohio State)

Pick 6.11 – C.J. Stroud (QB – HOU) 

C.J. Stroud was the seventh quarterback off the board in this mock, which is probably a bit laggy due to recent developments. With the addition of Stefon Diggs to an already stout group of receivers, Stroud should build on his Rookie of the Year campaign. His draft position will rise quite a bit from here and he will probably be drafted somewhere in the fourth or fifth Round as we edge closer to the season. If Stroud can get to 550 pass attempts this year, he will be on a rocket ship. The Texans are more than willing to go along on that ride with him.

Also Considered: Zamir White (RB – LV)

Pick 9.02 – Devin Singletary (RB – NYG)

While Devin Singletary isn’t the most exciting back, getting a presumed feature back in the ninth round is hard to pass up. With the roster construction here, getting depth at the running back position is important and Singletary has proven he can handle 15 touches per game. It would be good if the Giants use him more in the passing game than Houston did. Anything beyond 200 total touches is a bonus here.

Also Considered: Zach Charbonnet (RB – SEA), Blake Corum (RB – Michigan)
