Fantasy Draft Recaps

FFPC Main-Event Running Draft Recap

By Matt Schauf 3:07pm EDT 7/11/21

Come January, I expect to be deciding just what to do with my $500K.

Before I get to that point, though, I need to draft the team that's going to win it.

I just kicked off a slow draft in the FFPC Main Event, my 1st venture into this tournament. The fact that it is a tourney, of course, alters the strategy vs. just competing in a single league. I'll certainly need to fare well in my 12-team league first. But I'll also ultimately be competing against a field of 3,000 teams for the big prize.

That will alter my strategy at times. And I'm going to track the results right here.

Ultimately, though, it'll be about building the best roster and then managing it well throughout the season. So I've got my DS board set up for the FFPC format, and I'm ready to rock.

In case you're unfamiliar with the format (and didn't feel like clicking the FFPC link above), here's a quick run-through:

PPR scoring, but 1.5 PPR for TEs ("TE premium")
Lineup: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, Flex, Flex, K, DST
10 bench spots
2 weekly rounds of blind-bid waivers

Let's get to the picks (mine in bold) ...

Round 1

1.01 Christian McCaffrey, RB, Panthers
1.02 Travis Kelce, TE, Chiefs
1.03 Dalvin Cook, RB, Vikings
1.04 Derrick Henry, RB, Titans
1.05 Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Cowboys
1.06 Austin Ekeler, RB, Chargers
1.07 Alvin Kamara, RB, Saints
1.08 Saquon Barkley, RB, Giants
1.09 Tyreek Hill, WR, Chiefs
1.10 Darren Waller, TE, Raiders
1.11 Jonathan Taylor, RB, Colts
1.12 Cam Akers, RB, Rams

The 1st decision boiled down to Elliott vs. Kamara and Barkley for me. Why Elliott? Right now, at least, I believe he's my best bet for knowing what I'm getting.

We know that either Kamara or Barkley is capable of finishing as high as 2nd if all these guys stay healthy. But Barkley is coming off the 2020 ACL tear and might see his early workload limited. Even if that concern proves overblown, he returns to an offense that ranked 2nd-worst in both scoring and yards last year. Barkley also faces more competition for targets than when he absorbed 121 of them as a 2018 rookie.

The big question for Kamara is obviously the QB change. Jameis Winston hasn't been good for RB receiving volume to this point in his career. Taysom Hill ... well, he's different than most QBs. I certainly believe Kamara is good enough and central enough to the New Orleans offense to remain a top performer alongside either new guy. But it's an unknown.

I have no real concern with Elliott at this point. Last year was disappointing. But he played the whole season with O-linemen missing and nearly all of it without his star QB. His advanced metrics even in that season wound up comparable to previous years. And the other key pieces look on track to make this 1 of the league's top offenses again.

WR might have been a consideration here if I needed to start 3 a week instead of 2. But I probably still would have gone Elliott.

Round 2

2.01 George Kittle, TE, 49ers
2.02 Antonio Gibson, RB, Washington
2.03 Stefon Diggs, WR, Bills
2.04 Calvin Ridley, WR, Falcons
2.05 Davante Adams, WR, Packers
2.06 Joe Mixon, RB, Bengals
2.07 Nick Chubb, RB, Browns
2.08 Aaron Jones, RB, Packers
2.09 DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Cardinals
2.10 Najee Harris, RB, Steelers
2.11 D'Andre Swift, RB, Lions
2.12 Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, Chiefs

The downside of drafting this early: None of us knows what will happen with Aaron Rodgers.

The upside: If Rodgers stays in Green Bay, there's no way Jones is staying on the board this long.

He made his way back to late Round 1 in plenty of best-ball drafts before the Rodgers-Packers conflict came to light. I'm happy to take the mild risk at a RB13 price. Even if Rodgers gets traded or decides to go full Trebek, I'd still expect Jones to be at least solid. At worst, he's a lead back whose franchise just paid up to retain. And if Green Bay's worse, losing more and playing from behind, Jones brings much more to the passing game than AJ Dillon does.

Round 3

3.01 A.J. Brown, WR, Titans
3.02 D.K. Metcalf, WR, Seahawks
3.03 Michael Thomas, WR, Saints
3.04 Keenan Allen, WR, Chargers
3.05 Justin Jefferson, WR, Vikings
3.06 J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ravens
3.07 CeeDee Lamb, WR, Cowboys
3.08 Kyle Pitts, TE, Falcons
3.09 Chris Carson, RB, Seahawks
3.10 Terry McLaurin, WR, Washington
3.11 Allen Robinson, WR, Bears
3.12 Miles Sanders, RB, Eagles

I like the value on some of the RBs lasting into this range, especially Chris Carson. I expect him to finish top 12 in points per game at the position this season. But with my starting backs already rostered, I was pretty well set on a WR at this turn.

It's well documented at this point that production falls off more steeply as you move own the RB ranks than at WR. That certainly adds value to getting high-performing backs early. It also means the returns diminish more quickly -- whether because of disappointing performance or injury.

I'd have been satisfied with Thomas, Allen or Jefferson at this spot. I'm definitely not sad I got Jefferson, though.

Besides being just a more fun player to draft after his historic rookie year, Jefferson presented value. He's WR6 in our PPR rankings and fell several spots here vs. his current ADP across FFPC formats. I've already explained in his profile and this video why I believe there's TD upside for Jefferson. And he already overtook Adam Thielen in target share as a rookie.

As for the other picks, this round didn't present anything truly surprising. If you haven't been drafting much yet and are surprised to see Pitts this early as the TE4 ... don't be. That's his FFPC ADP at the position. And he actually went 4 spots later here than his average draft slot.

My decision in Round 4 now could get interesting ...

Round 4

4.01 David Montgomery, RB, Bears
4.02 Robert Woods, WR, Rams
4.03 T.J. Hockenson, TE, Lions
4.04 Amari Cooper, WR, Cowboys
4.05 Patrick Mahomes, QB, Chiefs
4.06 Mike Evans, WR, Buccaneers
4.07 Travis Etienne, RB, Jaguars
4.08 Cooper Kupp, WR, Rams
4.09 Mark Andrews, TE, Ravens
4.10 Chris Godwin, WR, Buccaneers
4.11 Josh Jacobs, RB, Raiders
4.12 Julio Jones, WR, Titans

This pick might have been my toughest decision yet. It came down to Kupp, Tyler Lockett and Mark Andrews. My Draft Sharks board wanted me to take Andrews. My personal rankings, though, disagree on there being a gap between Andrews and the next few TEs.

The Baltimore TE followed his breakthrough 2019 with a comparably lackluster 2020. Andrews lost 1.9 points per game off his FFPC scoring average. He still finished 6th among TEs, but he posted just 2 more top-5 PPR weeks than Dallas Goedert, Mike Gesicki and Jimmy Graham, among others; 1 more than Rob Gronkowski. And Andrews' 8 top-12 weeks tied him with Jared Cook and Eric Ebron.

I don't think he's a bad pick in Round 4 of FFPC drafts. But the 2 WRs present more upside. We've seen it with Lockett, who has finished 8th and 13th the past 2 years among PPR wideouts. Kupp let us down last year, but he checked in 4th at the position in 2019. And now he doesn't have to put up with Jared Goff anymore.

Kupp and Lockett sit right next to each other in both the DS projections and my own personal rankings. I ultimately leaned Kupp because the lower ADP for Lockett gave him a better chance of getting back to me in Round 5. We'll see whether that worked out ...

Round 5

5.01 Lamar Jackson, QB, Ravens
5.02 Ja'Marr Chase, WR, Bengals
5.03 D.J. Moore, WR, Panthers
5.04 Myles Gaskin, RB, Dolphins
5.05 Tyler Lockett, WR, Seahawks
5.06 Dallas Goedert, TE, Eagles
5.07 Tee Higgins, WR, Bengals
5.08 Mike Davis, RB, Falcons
5.09 Adam Thielen, WR, Vikings
5.10 Josh Allen, QB, Bills
5.11 Kareem Hunt, RB, Browns
5.12 Brandon Aiyuk, WR, 49ers

This went just as I hoped it would. I believe I now have 5 players capable of scoring 10+ TDs apiece this year. I've mined for upside -- which we certainly need to win a tournament -- without reaching to add risk. Jones, Jefferson and Lockett each came off the board at least 3 spots later among their position groups than where they sit in the DS rankings.

Round 6

6.01 Noah Fant, TE, Broncos
6.02 Diontae Johnson, WR, Steelers
6.03 Chase Edmonds, RB, Cardinals
6.04 Javonte Williams, RB, Broncos
6.05 Michael Carter, RB, Jets
6.06 Kyler Murray, QB, Cardinals
6.07 Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Browns
6.08 Dak Prescott, QB, Cowboys
6.09 Justin Herbert, QB, Chargers
6.10 Trey Sermon, RB, 49ers
6.11 James Robinson, RB, Jaguars
6.12 Kenny Golladay, WR, Giants

Now that we're through Round 6, I can say that my DS board wanted me to pick Prescott back in Round 5. That's based significantly on the fact that Prescott's ADP in the feed to the board sits in the middle of Round 5. So the board didn't think I'd have a shot at him in Round 6. ADP from Footballguys Players Championship drafts, though, had him in the middle of Round 6, as the 5th QB. With just 2 QBs off the board at my Round 5 turn, I liked my chances. I also considered Russell Wilson a fallback option, in a stack with Lockett.

But I don't have a Cowboys WR, so why target Prescott? I want the Dallas offense. Last time we saw a healthy Prescott, the Cowboys finished 1st in the league in yards, 6th in points and 2nd in Football Outsiders' offensive DVOA. Prescott finished that season 2nd among fantasy QBs. Elliott checked in 3rd among RBs in total PPR points (5th in points per game).

We have our WR projections and rankings, but I'm certainly not sure how things will sort out among CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper and even Michael Gallup. Owning Prescott gives me some stock in the whole group. Combining him with Elliott should give me a piece of most of Dallas' TDs.

Round 7

7.01 Courtland Sutton, WR, Broncos
7.02 DeVonta Smith, WR, Eagles
7.03 Russell Wilson, QB, Seahawks
7.04 Robby Anderson, WR, Panthers
7.05 Tyler Higbee, TE, Rams
7.06 JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, Steelers
7.07 Chase Claypool, WR, Steelers
7.08 Jerry Jeudy, WR, Broncos
7.09 Damien Harris, RB, Patriots
7.10 D.J. Chark, WR, Jaguars
7.11 Tom Brady, QB, Buccaneers
7.12 Laviska Shenault, WR, Jaguars

Tougher choice this turn, with decent options at several positions but none commanding my attention.

The 1st 2 suggested picks on my MVP Board were RBs. But I'm trying to maximize upside here and don't believe either of those players win that category over the RBs I'm likely to find in the next couple of rounds. There were also several WRs I'd have been content to select here. But there was no single player at the position I'd be sad to miss vs. what I expect to be available at my next 2 turns.

So that helped me land on the #3 suggestion from my board. We're coming off a season of big disappointment for all Higbee drafters. But we also don't need to guess at what his ceiling is. We saw that late in 2019, the last time he played an extended stretch without Gerald Everett around. Everett is now in Seattle, so perhaps we see a significant increase and routes and targets for Higbee once again.

Or perhaps we don't. But this year's Rams offense is a unit I'm willing to bet on. Maybe we see an increase in pass volume after the team traded for Matthew Stafford and added multiple wideouts. Or maybe we just get a more efficient scoring offense. The Rams finished 1st and 2nd in the league in points in Sean McVay's first 2 seasons. They dipped to 11th and 22nd the past 2 years, despite ranking significantly better in yardage (7th and 11th respectively).

In short, Higbee could wind up decent even without a target boom just by virtue of playing in a strong offense.

I'm also willing to chase his upside here over worrying about his downside for 2 reasons:

  1. I like his ceiling over the next few TEs set to come off the board.
  2. Even if Higbee disappoints again, this is late enough that it shouldn't kill me.

There aren't a lot of strong bets at the position from here on. But there are plenty of upside candidates who could well outperform their draft spot. I know I'll be picking at least 1 more -- and probably 2. Higbee gives me a foundation to take a little pressure off building out the position.

Round 8

8.01 Tyler Boyd, WR, Bengals
8.02 Logan Thomas, TE, Washington
8.03 Raheem Mostert, RB, 49ers
8.04 Curtis Samuel, WR, Washington
8.05 Deebo Samuel, WR, 49ers
8.06 Tony Pollard, RB, Cowboys
8.07 Antonio Brown, WR, Buccaneers
8.08 Brandin Cooks, WR, Texans
8.09 Will Fuller, WR, Dolphins
8.10 Mike Williams, WR, Chargers
8.11 James Conner, RB, Cardinals
8.12 A.J. Dillon, RB, Packers

The MVP Board was basically yelling at me to take a RB at this turn. RBs populated the top 3 recommended-pick spots, with even the 3rd nearly doubling the DMVP score of the guy I selected. It makes sense. There will be worthwhile WRs for a while yet. But RB has already dried up enough that a handcuff back left the board in this round. (Sorry if you think Pollard is more than that.)

Here's my thinking: We have Cooks projected for more points than any RB left on the board -- nearly 1 more PPR point per game than the highest-ranked RB and more than 1.5 ahead of the next guy. I expect Cooks to be a target hog for these Texans, regardless of who plays QB. I'll be surprised if he falls short of 8 targets per game -- with upside to 10+. That's the kind of guy I could start weekly in a PPR lineup. The RBs at this turn are not.

I know I'll need some reserve RBs. But my chances of winning this tournament will drop significantly if either Ezekiel Elliott or Aaron Jones goes down for the season. So I'm going to draft as though they'll last and prioritize value and upside over reinforcement.

It also doesn't hurt that we have Cooks projected 31st among PPR WRs and I got him 41st at the position here. And if Deshaun Watson actually plays ... *rocket-ship emoji*.

Round 9

9.01 Darrell Henderson, RB, Rams
9.02 Jalen Hurts, QB, Eagles
9.03 Marquise Brown, WR, Ravens
9.04 Michael Gallup, WR, Cowboys
9.05 Leonard Fournette, RB, Buccaneers
9.06 Zack Moss, RB, Bills
9.07 Mike Gesicki, TE, Dolphins
9.08 Melvin Gordon, RB, Broncos
9.09 Ronald Jones, RB, Buccaneers
9.10 Kenyan Drake, RB, Raiders
9.11 Elijah Moore, WR, Jets
9.12 Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers

I don't think there's anything exciting about drafting Fournette at any point. Waiting on RB worked out, though, in that he's sat atop my board at the position or at least 2 rounds. We currently have Fournette 26th in our PPR rankings at RB. I got him as RB37 in this draft. Here's what HC Bruce Arians said about Fournette and Ronald Jones after June minicamp: "Both those guys are starters in my mind. Whoever goes out first doesn't really matter to me. But that will be determined in camp." It's worth remembering that Fournette didn't join the Bucs until Sept. 2 last year.

I might have considered A.J. Dillon here had he made it. I'm not sure whether to be glad that someone took the decision away from me, because I'm aware of and believe the arguments against handcuffing your RBs. I do think Dillon ranks among the top handcuff options, though -- on the assumption Aaron Rodgers returns. Darrell Henderson might have been in consideration as well. I did consider Zack Moss and hope he doesn't make me regret my choice by shoving Devin Singletary aside while Fournette continues to split.

Round 10

10.01 Jarvis Landry, WR, Browns
10.02 Jaylen Waddle, WR, Dolphins
10.03 David Johnson, RB, Texans
10.04 Gus Edwards, RB, Ravens
10.05 Mecole Hardman, WR, Chiefs
10.06 Robert Tonyan, TE, Packers
10.07 Michael Pittman II, WR, Colts
10.08 Jamaal Williams, RB, Lions
10.09 Irv Smith Jr., TE, Vikings
10.10 Adam Trautman, TE, Saints
10.11 Russell Gage, WR, Falcons
10.12 Evan Engram, TE, Giants

Easy to go with my board at this turn. Now I have a pair of OK fill-in types with some workload upside to back up my starters. I considered David Johnson over Fournette last round but decided the ceiling was higher on the Buc. (Plus I'd just rather bet on a Tampa RB than a Houston back.)

Round 11

11.01 Jonnu Smith, TE, Patriots
11.02 Matthew Stafford, QB, Rams
11.03 Gerald Everett, TE, Seahawks
11.04 Latavius Murray, RB, Saints
11.05 Blake Jarwin, TE, Cowboys
11.06 Joe Burrow, QB, Bengals
11.07 Alexander Mattison, RB, Vikings
11.08 Hunter Henry, TE, Patriots
11.09 Jared Cook, TE, Chargers
11.10 Corey Davis, WR, Jets
11.11 Darnell Mooney, WR, Bears
11.12 Phillip Lindsay, RB, Texans

My colleagues -- and probably many of our regular podcast listeners -- would say, "Of course he was the pick." But I'm pretty sure I fretted over this one more than any previous TE2 selection.

First of all, FFPC might be the only format where I'm bothering with a 2nd TE. And taking the uncertain Higbee as my 1st only makes me care more about the 2nd.

Here I weighed Jarwin vs. Hunter Henry. They sit right next to each other in the DS rankings. They came out right next to each other in my own projections. They both come with upside and downside paths. You can check out a large part of Jarwin's upside case in his player profile. He probably can't realistically climb higher than 4th among Cowboys in targets if everyone's healthy -- and might land 5th behind Elliott. But I expect him to play in 1 of the league's top 3 offenses this season. That can help make up for limited volume. And maybe the Cowboys climb even higher in pass attempts than 2019, when they tied for 10th most.

Henry figures to play in a more limited offense -- especially on the passing side. But his range of outcomes includes leading his team in targets.

Ultimately, I figured that a primary path to me winning the big prize here lies in Dak Prescott posting the monster season was heading for last season. If that happens, I'll probably want his lead TE in any format.

Round 12

12.01 Trey Lance, QB, 49ers
12.02 Rondale Moore, WR, Cardinals
12.03 Rashaad Penny, RB, Seahawks
12.04 Cole Kmet, TE, Bears
12.05 Devin Singletary, RB, Bills
12.06 Henry Ruggs, WR, Raiders
12.07 Nyheim Hines, RB, Colts
12.08 Rashod Bateman, WR, Ravens
12.09 DeVante Parker, WR, Dolphins
12.10 Ryan Tannehill, QB, Titans
12.11 Zach Ertz, TE, Eagles (for now, at least)
12.12 Chuba Hubbard, RB, Panthers

Bateman isn't a player I'm specifically stumping for this draft season. But as WR56 in the middle of Round 12 in a format that rewards ultimate upside even more than the common fantasy league, he's a perfect fit. Might he just put in the kind of limited, inconsistent season we've gotten from Ravens WRs the past couple of years? Absolutely. But ...

-- What if Lamar Jackson is ready to take another step as a passer
-- And what if this is the best WR he's had to date
-- And what if the Ravens get back up to just the 51.8% passing share they posted in 2018
-- And what if Bateman instantly becomes Baltimore's target leader

That 51.8% passing share still would have ranked 5th most run-heavy in the league last year, 3rd most run-heavy in 2019 and 2nd most run-heavy in 2018. It also would have added 108 pass attempts to the total for last year's Ravens.

I'll definitely take the ceiling play as my 5th WR.

With 8 rounds left in this draft, let's take stock of what each team has ...

Team 1: 5 RBs, 4 WRs, 2 TEs, 1 QB (Lamar Jackson in the 5th)
Team 2: 4 RBs, 4 WRs, 2 TEs, 2 QBs
Team 3: 3 RBs, 5 WRs, 2 TEs, 2 QBs
Team 4: 3 RBs, 6 WRs, 2 TEs, 1 QB (Justin Herbert in the 6th)
Team 5 (me): 4 RBs, 5 WRs, 2 TEs, 1 QB (Dak Prescott in the 6th)
Team 6: 6 RBs, 4 WRs, 1 TE, 1 QB (Joe Burrow in the 11th)
Team 7: 4 RBs, 5 WRs, 2 TEs, 1 QB (Kyler Murray in the 6th)
Team 8: 5 RBs, 4 WRs, 2 TEs, 1 QB (Patrick Mahomes in the 4th)
Team 9: 5 RBs, 5 WRs, 2 TEs (only team with 0 QBs so far)
Team 10: 5 RBs, 4 WRs, 2 TEs, 1 QB (Josh Allen in the 5th)
Team 11: 3 RBs, 7 WRs, 1 TE, 1 QB (Tom Brady in the 7th)
Team 12: 4 RBs, 4 WRs, 2 TEs, 2 QBs

Round 13

13.01 Rob Gronkowski, TE, Buccaneers
13.02 T.Y. Hilton, WR, Colts
13.03 Tevin Coleman, RB, Jets
13.04 Darrynton Evans, RB, Titans
13.05 Marvin Jones, WR, Jaguars
13.06 Anthony Firkser, TE, Titans
13.07 J.D. McKissic, RB, Washington
13.08 Gabriel Davis, WR, Bills
13.09 Matt Ryan, QB, Falcons
13.10 Cole Beasley, WR, Bills
13.11 Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Eagles
13.12 Jakobi Meyers, WR, Patriots

I knew I wanted another WR in Round 13, looking at the options across the positions and what I could expect to be available over the next few rounds. I considered Beasley and 1 other player still on the board but landed on Jones. Any of Jacksonville's top 3 WRs could realistically lead the team in targets this season. Jones is getting up there, heading into his age-31 season. But he remained effective in 2020 and played the past 2 seasons under Darrell Bevell, Jacksonville's new OC.

Round 14

14.01 Damien Williams, RB, Bears
14.02 Javian Hawkins, RB, Falcons
14.03 Darrel Williams, RB, Chiefs
14.04 Kirk Cousins, QB, Vikings
14.05 Tarik Cohen, RB, Bears
14.06 Jalen Reagor, WR, Eagles
14.07 Parris Campbell, WR, Colts
14.08 James White, RB, Patriots
14.09 Terrace Marshall, WR, Panthers
14.10 Devontae Booker, RB, Giants
14.11 Rams DST
14.12 Samaje Perine, RB, Bengals

White's receptions per game last season dipped to the lowest level since 2015, his 2nd year in the league. That marked a big tumble from 4.8 in 2019 and 5.4 in 2018. But he also still ranked 2nd on the team in receptions. Rex Burkhead's departure removes the #5 player in targets and receptions. That should help. An early shift to Mac Jones would enhance his upside.

Round 15

15.01 Justin Fields, QB, Bears
15.02 Harrison Butker, K, Chiefs
15.03 O.J. Howard, TE, Buccaneers
15.04 Salvon Ahmed, RB, Dolphins
15.05 Sterling Shepard, WR, Giants
15.06 Bryan Edwards, WR, Raiders
15.07 Trevor Lawrence, QB, Jaguars
15.08 Younghoe Koo, K, Falcons
15.09 Austin Hooper, TE, Browns
15.10 Rhamondre Stevenson, RB, Patriots
15.11 Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, Lions
15.12 Justin Tucker, K, Ravens

Round 16

16.01 Nelson Agholor, WR, Patriots
16.02 Washington DST
16.03 Emmanuel Sanders, WR, Bills
16.04 Marlon Mack, RB, Colts
16.05 Hayden Hurst, TE, Falcons
16.06 Eric Ebron, TE, Steelers
16.07 49ers DST
16.08 Mo Alie-Cox, TE, Colts
16.09 Giovani Bernard, RB, Buccaneers
16.10 Joshua Kelley, RB, Chargers
16.11 Malcolm Brown, RB, Dolphins
16.12 Buccaneers DST

Shepard led Giants with 24% target share in his 11 healthy games last season. He finished 34th among WRs in PPR points per game. They paid up for Kenny Golladay to be the new #1, but I'd still bet on Shepard ranking 2nd among Giants WRs in targets. We'll see exactly what that role looks like with a bunch of pieces coming together for the 1st time. But he's easily a boring value at WR66 in this draft (and his WR70 ADP in FFPC drafting).

I probably would have taken Ebron in Round 16 had he lasted. I'm not sad he got picked, though, because dreaming about what Mo Alie-Cox could be is more fun. He passed Jack Doyle in passing-game relevance last year, and now 2020 TE target leader Trey Burton is gone. Unless the Colts acquire Zach Ertz before the season, I like chasing MAC's ceiling at TE29. At the least, it'll be more fun to watch his games than Jordan Akins'.

I must admit that I was hoping to land Malcolm Brown in Round 17, drafting next to the team that took Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed. But I obviously didn't care that much about getting him.
