2019 Fantasy Football Mock Draft 

Post#1 » by RealGM Articles » Thu Jan 3, 2019 2:37 pm

With the 2018 regular season over, here\\\'s a way too early mock draft for 2019 – the first two rounds of a twelve-team league. 

Round 1

Team 1: Todd Gurley, RB - LAR

Team 2: Saquon Barkley, RB - NYG

Team 3: Alvin Kamara, RB - NO

Team 4: Christian McCaffrey, RB - Car

Team 5: Le’Veon Bell, RB – NYJ???

Team 6: Ezekiel Elliott, RB - Dal

Team 7: Michael Thomas, WR - NO

Team 8: Melvin Gordon, RB  - LAC

Team 9: David Johnson, RB – Ari

Team 10: DeAndre Hopkins, WR - Hou

Team 11: James Conner, RB - Pit

Team 12: Phillip Lindsay, RB - Den

Comments: Running backs dominate the first round, with only two WRs joining the fray. You can make a reasonable case for any of the first four guys to be the first overall pick. I’m going on record with a proclamation that Le’Veon Bell ends up joining Sam Darnold and the Jets. Two RBs little known prior to the 2018 season (James Conner and Phillip Lindsay) end up becoming 2019 first round picks. Note the assumption here that Kareem Hunt, with whomever he signs, will face a significant suspension to start the 2019 season and thus will fall out of the first two rounds.

Round 2

Team 12: Antonio Brown, WR - Pit???

Team 11: Davante Adams, WR - GB

Team 10: Adam Thielen, WR - Min

Team 9: Odell Beckham Jr., WR - NYG

Team 8: Patrick Mahomes, QB - KC

Team 7: Nick Chubb, RB - Cle

Team 6: Joe Mixon, RB - Cin

Team 5: Julio Jones, WR - Atl

Team 4: Juju Smith-Schuster, WR - Pit

Team 3: Tyreek Hill, WR - KC

Team 2: Leonard Fournette, RB - Jax

Team 1: Dalvin Cook, RB – Min

Comments: Round 2 is dominated by wide receivers, while we also have our first QB selected. Antonio Brown falls to the top of the second round, and he’s joined by Odell Beckham and Julio Jones as prior first round picks who slip back a round. Patrick Mahomes has clearly established himself as the top QB option, and someone will grab him in round 2, if not in the first round. Keep an eye on Dalvin Cook over these last few weeks, as he’s quietly turned the corner despite running behind a subpar offensive line. The Vikings will surely look to upgrade their o-line in the offseason, and Cook will ascend up draft boards as a result.

I don't think Fournette should be that high, he averaged 3.3 YPC, (Longest rush of 25 yards) and the offense doesn't do anything to take any pressure off of him. Not to mention injury concerns. Sony Michel, Alvin Kamara, or D Henry are much more deserving IMO.

*EDIT* Why are you so high on Fournette? Not trying to be a jerk but just want to see where you're coming from on this one!

Thanks!
