Fantasy Football Mock Draft: FFPC League (2024)

Fantasy Football Mock Draft: FFPC League (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 tight end premium, which helps to put a different twist on the draft board and force users to approach things differently. Using our Mock Draft Simulator we can replicate the settings so we can quickly play around and see how drafts might unfold.

Fantasy Football Mock Draft

Settings

  • Full Point Per Reception (PPR)
  • Tight End Premium (additional 0.5 per catch)
  • 20-Round drafts
  • Starting roster; 1-QB, 2-RB, 2-WR, 1-TE, 2-Flex (Flex can be RB, WR or TE).

Rounds 1 & 2

The Draft Wizard randomly assigned us to pick 12, and before we can pick we’re victim to a vicious run on wide receivers. Eight wideouts came off the board compared to only three running backs. With the format being tight end premium, and with a tier break at both wide receiver and running back, it feels like a good time to take an elite tight in Sam LaPorta.

It’s possible he suffers some touchdown regression in 2023 and comes back closer to the pack, but sometimes we have to lean into the ceiling outcomes and LaPorta’s are as high as any. If we’re betting on one Detroit Lion, why not bet on two and believe that their offense continues to be very fruitful for fantasy football, and take Jahmyr Gibbs here.

Rounds 3 & 4

At the next turn, we need wide receiver help as passing them up for four picks would put us in a very precarious position, but the chance to create a stack is too good to pass up, so we meet things halfway and add DeVonta Smith and Jalen Hurts.

Betting on a Hurts bounceback as the third quarterback off the board feels like a strong choice, given much of his poor play seemed to stem from injury in 2023 and his ceiling is as high as both Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen, who were selected ahead of him.

Rounds 5 & 6

With only one wide receiver through four rounds, we’re behind the 8-ball, and while we’re not in a bad position yet, we’re spread a little thin and it’s time to concentrate on the wide receiver position with Christian Kirk and Terry McLaurin in back to back picks.

Kirk feels like he’s primed for another strong season with Gabe Davis and Brian Thomas Jr. clearing out defenders deep and allowing Kirk to continue to feast in PPR formats. Meanwhile, McLaurin gets arguably the best quarterback of his career who throws a mean deep ball in Jayden Daniels.

Rounds 7 & 8

At the 7.12 we grab our first rookie in Xavier Worthy who feels primed for a climb up draft boards as ADP settles post-draft, particularly if we get news about Rashee Rice’s legal situation. Worthy is everything we want in best ball picks, with a huge upside and being paired with an elite quarterback in Patrick Mahomes.

At the 8.01 we’ve left the running back position alone for long enough, giving us a true ‘Hero-RB’ build. However, we don’t want to push it too far, and adding Devin Singletary gives us plenty of projectable volume for a player who looks to be the clear main choice in New York, for 2024 at least.

Rounds 9 & 10

With this format rewarding the tight end position we can’t afford to wait too long for a second tight end and David Njoku is the perfect one to add to Sam LaPorta. Now we have two tight ends with high weekly ceilings and solid floors and no longer need to feel pressed to have to take a third. At 10.01, Zach Charbonnet is the best running back option available and we’ll be hoping he makes a leap in his second year in the league.

Rounds 11 & 12

In the 11th round, we continue to add to our running back room with Ty Chandler, who showed enough last year to believe he’ll have a standalone role alongside Aaron Jones, but he could also carry the load if Jones got injured, as he often has.

After that, Brian Thomas is too appealing to pass up at the 12.01 and it’s entirely possible his price doesn’t hang around there for long. As a true deep threat with blazing speed, Thomas is exactly the type of player we want in best ball.

Rounds 13 & 14

Trevor Lawrence makes it back to us in Round 13 and stacking him with Brian Thomas is an easy choice. FFPC finals are much smaller than Draftkings or Underdog, but we still need stacking and correlation to help us climb leaderboards.

At 14.01, we take Denver’s newest wide receiver in Troy Franklin. It’s entirely possible he never lives up to his pre-draft hype, but much like Brian Thomas, deep threats can be fun for best ball.

Rounds 15 & 16

One last rookie wide receiver at 15.12, with the addition of Ja’Lynn Polk, who continues our theme of adding rookies with plenty of upside. We might not hit on all these rookies, but if two or three of the four have several spike weeks, then the overall bet will pay off.

At 16.01, Justice Hill is a pick not everyone wants to make but he likely plays a large portion of the year as the RB2 behind Derrick Henry, while Keaton Mitchell recovers from his ACL injury and Audric Estime gets up to speed in the NFL.

Rounds 17 & 18

Our last running back and our last rookie in one pick goes to Bucky Irving, who has a real chance to carve out a role next to Rachaad White in Tampa Bay, with White never being particularly efficient on the ground. Irving isn’t a complete prospect, but in round 17 it’s a good pick.

In Round 18, Demarcus Robinson rounds out our wide receiver room as one of the big winners of the draft weekend, with the Rams electing not to bring in another wide receiver who will threaten for that important WR3. No team ran more three wide receiver sets than the Rams in 2023 and as long as that’s the case, Robinson will be on the field in an offense we want exposure to.

Rounds 19 & 20

With Jalen Hurts and Sam LaPorta, we arguably don’t need a third tight end or quarterback, but drafting this early does bring an element of risk around the bye weeks, and adding a third stack in Derek Carr and Juwan Johnson makes sense on a number of levels. They both might not have lived up to expectations in 2023, but as last-round picks, their value feels fine.

Summary

Here you can find the full mock draft results. This true Hero RB build team pushed how far it could wait on wide receiver, but finishing with four in the first seven rounds and eight overall should assuage some of the worries. Also, the makeup of the wide receiver room is healthy with a mix of established veterans and upside rookies. At tight end, this team might be slightly overkill, but FFPC allows for two flex spots so even if all three go off in a week, nobody is sitting on the bench. Altogether, this feels like a strong team with plenty of upside and the ability to make a deep run.
