Fantasy Football: Finding ways to set your team apart in a 10-team PPR draft

Fantasy Football: Finding ways to set your team apart in a 10-team PPR draft

In a 10-team league, when each Fantasy supervisor goes to have a stacked roster, you need to discover a means to give your self an edge. That could possibly be drafting one of the best group of operating backs or receivers or perhaps the highest quarterback or tight finish — one thing to set your self apart.

It helps when you’ve got an early choose in Round 1, which I did right here in this 10-team PPR mock draft that includes members of our CBS Sports workers. With the primary general choose, I drafted Christian McCaffrey, who provides me a large benefit.

I supposed to draft a receiver in Round 2, and DeAndre Hopkins was the highest one on the board. In Round 3, I might have drafted one other receiver like Justin Jefferson, A.J. Brown or DK Metcalf, who have been all accessible. Instead, I opted for a difference-making tight finish in Darren Waller.

Now, with the No. 1 operating again, No. 2 tight finish and a top-five receiver, I felt like I used to be on my means to setting myself apart from the remainder of the league.

I felt lucky to draft Chris Carson in Round 4 as my second operating again, and once more I used to be confronted with a powerful determination. I might have drafted my second receiver in Julio Jones, D.J. Moore or Chris Godwin, and we begin three receivers in this league.

But figuring out that large receiver is an excellent deeper place in a 10-team league, I opted for one more distinction maker in Lamar Jackson. Now, I’ve a top-three quarterback to go together with McCaffrey, Hopkins, Waller and Carson.

My receiving corps was a precedence subsequent, so I drafted Jerry Jeudy and Brandon Aiyuk with my subsequent two alternatives, and each of those guys have breakout potential. I’ve been enthusiastic about Jeudy all offseason, and hopefully he is a sturdy No. 2 receiver in all leagues. The identical goes for Aiyuk, who needs to be the No. 1 receiver in San Francisco and No. 2 goal behind George Kittle.

I added to my receiving corps with Courtland Sutton in Round 8 and Laviska Shenault in Round 9. While it is not perfect to have Jeudy and Sutton on the identical Fantasy roster, I did not thoughts it in this league. Now, I get to see who will emerge as one of the best cross catcher in Denver, and Shenault may be a flex choice whereas I let this play out. Shenault can also be a breakout candidate as one of the best Fantasy receiver in Jacksonville.

I needed to fortify my operating again corps subsequent, so I drafted James Conner in Round 10 and A.J. Dillon in Round 11. While I anticipate Chase Edmonds to lead the Cardinals backfield this yr, Conner will nonetheless play a distinguished function in Arizona and may be a flex choice for this team. And Dillon is a good backup operating again whereas Aaron Jones is wholesome, however Dillon could possibly be a league winner if Jones have been to miss any time.

I added to my bench with Michael Gallup, James White and Chuba Hubbard, who’s the handcuff for McCaffrey. Gallup might work into my receiver rotation and has lottery-ticket upside if CeeDee Lamb or Amari Cooper ever acquired harm. And White is a sneaky flex play in PPR now that Mac Jones is the starter for the Patriots

This team has loads of upside due to the cornerstones of my roster, together with McCaffrey, Hopkins, Waller and Jackson. I ought to have an edge over most groups at these positions, after which hopefully my different starters could have standout seasons to lead me to a potential championship.

In this league, all touchdowns are value six factors, and we award one level for each 10 yards speeding and receiving and one level for each 25 yards passing. We additionally award one level for each reception. We characteristic a beginning lineup of QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, FLEX (RB/WR/TE) and DST. There are also six reserve spots for a 15-round draft.
