SCFE Standard Mock Draft; Non-PPR Edition

Top 200 Standard Rankings
Photo Credit: Jeffrey Beall

It’s Mock Draft time again! This time, members of the SCFE staff got together for a standard, non-PPR draft.

There are definitely some big differences between this kind of draft compared with our previous PPR version. Running backs were hot and heavy earlier, and certain tight ends got huge boosts as well.

As a disclaimer, this draft started on July 1. A LOT of news has happened in what is normally a quiet period until training camp. I would bet Ezekiel Elliott and D’Onta Foreman are just a few guys that might have had their value take a dip.

This mock draft was conducted with the standard lineup of 1QB/2RB/2WR/1TE/1Flex/1DST/1K.

  • The obvious starting point is the running back bump. The first four picks were all backs, while eight total went in Round 1 and 12 of the first 19 picks were running backs. In a standard league with no points per reception, your flex will more than likely be a back.
  • The running back run would have been even more prominent if Scott had his way: “I was hoping McCoy would be there [for my pick].”
  • Rob Gronkowski gets a bump in this scoring set-up as well. With no PPR, tight ends that score more are much more valuable. Gronk has one of the greatest touchdowns-per-game of any player ever, really. His injury risk is worth the reward.
  • The recent Ezekiel Elliott happenings make his status as a top pick very murky. Cody’s exact words, “I regret [taking] Zeke already. [Pick] 3 is way too high if he gets suspended.”
  • Only one person went without a back in the first two rounds, and Brian still took Gronk with one of his two picks from another premium standard position.
  • Kyle did not love his Fournette pick-up but he does love his ceiling, “He has potential to be a true #1 back.”
  • DeAndre Hopkins should bounce back and is good value at Pick 24.

  • Christian McCaffrey at 26th overall is still high for my liking. In our previous, PPR mock draft he went at the 13th pick. He definitely gets bumped down in standard leagues, and I still see him more as a Round 4-5 type of guy.
  • Isaiah Crowell is quietly a non-PPR stud. He was 14th among running backs in scoring with over 1,250 yards and almost five yards per carry. The Browns will have to run the ball and I expect Crowell to creep towards 300 touches.
  • The next three elite tight ends all got a slight bump from their PPR average draft position. As I said, tight ends that score are a hot commodity in standard leagues.
  • I love the value of Allen Robinson in the middle of the fourth round. I know last year was bad, but he put up 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns the year before in the same offense with the same quarterback. There is still a super high ceiling with the Jaguar.
  • You may notice the error made my Levi: he took Akeem Hunt instead of Kareem Hunt. I left it in there as a teaching point for drafts this year. Make sure you have the right player, because there are some very similar names.
  • Scott was “not a fan” of his picking Joe Mixon. I am hesitant on the whole Bengals’ backfield at this point until their timeshare shakes out.
  • Kyle loves Cooks with the Patriots’ offense, “he’s a perfect fit for [them].” Kyle also thinks Reed has a shot to be the top-scoring tight end and I happen to agree with him.
  • Strausberg on the other hand, would rather have Olsen, saying he will “bet he makes it four years in a row with 1,000+ yards.”

61272Dennis SosicPaul PerkinsRBGiants
  • Mike Gillislee gets possibly the biggest bump of all running backs in standard leagues. He will get his fair share of first-down and goal-lines carries in New England.
  • Fun fact: Tevin Coleman was the 17th highest non-PPR scoring back last year, 13th in points per game. He is seen as the pass-catching, PPR specialist in that offense but he is a legit RB2 no matter the format.
  • There was an oddity of four Saints’ players going in a seven-pick span. The split between Mark Ingram and Adrian Peterson has to be one of the biggest mysteries going into this season.
  • There are some other players seen as pass-catchers or PPR-only guys that went in these two rounds. Guys like Golden Tate, Julian Edelman and Jamison Crowder still do have value in standard leagues. You can usually get them pretty cheaply as people over-correct their draft boards and cheat sheets.
  • Mark had a different kind of draft strategy: “Given I went Zero WR, Moncrief ain’t a bad WR1.”

  • Strausberg thinks he got really good value: “Something tells me as we get closer to the season Maclin isn’t going to last outside of the Top 75.”
  • Scott thinks Corey Davis is being overlooked: “[He’s] the #2 option at worst. If/when Decker goes down, Davis will take off.”
  • I was quite happy to get Russell Wilson after the first defense went off the board. Wilson carries an extremely high floor with his production because of his rushing numbers.
  • Speaking of defenses, Kyle really shot for the fences with the Broncos’ defense here in Round 8. They are a dominant group, but I cannot cosign taking a defense this early, ever.
  • Danny Woodhead probably takes the biggest hit from PPR to standard. I have seen him go at the beginning of the fourth round in PPR.

  • Strausberg has high hopes for Jordan Matthews saying, “Great post hype candidate. Pederson is going to let Wentz throw this year and when (not if) Alshon gets injured, Matthews will be the man.”
  • Mark was also hoping that Philip Rivers would slip back to him, but was happy to scoop up Stafford.
  • Jacquizz Rodgers could be a strong pick later in drafts. Doug Martin is suspended the first four games with Rodgers slated to start. If he plays well I could see him taking the job over.
  • I took D’Onta Foreman, but this happened before his own legal troubles. We will see if his status is in jeopardy to start the season.
  • John Brown is a solid high-upside pick this late. I recently was able to snag him in the 14th round of the Scott Fish Bowl and was ecstatic.
  • Kyle is taking a shot at Josh Gordon. Should he get re-instated, he could pay huge dividends.
  • Quincy Enunwa is a draft-able player. I mean, who else in New York is going to catch passes? It’s not like they are going to be leading a lot and running the clock out.

  • Mark is holding on to his T.J. Yeldon stock, “The reports of his demise have been greatly exaggerated and I still think he gets over 200 touches.”
  • Similarly, Scott thinks that J.J. Nelson is “highly under-rated.”
  • Not much to say in the land of kickers and defenses. Strausberg is putting his Pin in the Jaguars’ defense, “Jacksonville will be a Top Ten Defense this year, book it!”
  • I was shocked Devontae Booker was still available. I genuinely thought he was drafted a few rounds prior. To me, it’s a three-way coin flip on who gets the bulk of the touches in Denver.
  • Dennis talked about going against his normal strategy of only a single tight end: “Hooper… was a no-brainer. His upside is tremendous. While injuries hindered his development in the beginning of the season, he flashed his ability and promise in the playoffs/Super Bowl.”

Now that you are getting a grasp of certain players’ ADP, let’s take at look at which starters are the most consistent!
