RotoBaller Staff Mock Review - Dynasty Superflex PPR

josh allen fantasy football rankings news NFL DFS lineup picks

As the NFL proceeds through the offseason, nearing training camp and draft season, player values and draft strategies become increasingly relevant. A mock draft is one of the most informative and enjoyable ways to familiarize yourself with the current landscape. 

With this in mind, the RotoBaller staff decided to complete a mock draft of their own. Here you will find a Link To The Draft On Sleeper with all of their picks.

In an effort to provide each drafter with additional flexibility, the format incorporated almost all draft variations you can have including dynasty, Superflex, and best ball with full-PPR scoring. Below you'll receive a breakdown of how each format option typically changes your draft strategy, with an overview of each team including their roster, composition, strengths, weaknesses, and best draft pick. You'll also find a list of awards in the summary section including the best draft pick, the best stack, the best team in 2022, and the best dynasty team.

Format Options

As mentioned above each of the format variations impacts your draft strategy in a different way.

Dynasty - Requires you to consider the age and longevity of each player and also promotes rostering players who may have a less immediate impact with a brighter future outlook.

Superflex - Allows you to start two quarterbacks, which is the position that usually generates the most fantasy points, causing them to be drafted much earlier, often accounting for the majority of the players taken in Round 1.

Best Ball - Locks in your current roster for the season removing the ability to add players while automatically setting your optimal lineup based on the number of fantasy points each of your players scored, which places an emphasis on depth and high-level production.

Full-PPR - Creates a higher ceiling for wide receivers and pass-catching running backs, which tends to promote playing wide receivers in your flex spot, making it beneficial to roster more of them.

*Stacking - As an additional point, stacking, which is when you have a quarterback and receiving option (TE or WR) from the same team, is a strategy used in all formats, but becomes particularly utilized in a best ball format because it will optimize your maximum output of fantasy points.

Considering the overall impact these factors have, you would be best to build a team with two or more quarterbacks, more wide receivers than running backs, and players with at least a couple of years of longevity remaining that can produce in Year 1, preferably in Week 1. Based on the draft board below, each team hit on the different aspects of this recommendation to a varying degree.

 

Fantasy Football Draft Board

Here you can see the completed draft board with all of the picks. Next up is the team-by-team recap where you will find not only a list of the players each team drafted and at which pick but also a chart showing the positional composition of each team (how many players at each position did they draft) and composition by NFL team (which NFL team were their players from and how many from each).

 

Team #1 - Dennis Sosic

Player Pos. Team
1.01 Josh Allen QB Bills
2.12 Travis Kelce TE Chiefs
3.01 Davante Adams WR Packers
4.12 DK Metcalf WR Seahawks
5.01 Terry McLaurin WR Commanders
6.12 Kenneth Walker III RB Seahawks
7.01 A.J. Dillon RB Packers
8.12 Tony Pollard RB Cowboys
9.01 Zach Wilson QB Jets
10.12 Carson Wentz QB Commanders
11.01 Ronald Jones RB Chiefs
12.12 Irv Smith Jr. TE Vikings
13.01 Jarvis Landry WR Saints
14.12 Mecole Hardman WR Chiefs

Team Composition

Composition By Position Composition By NFL Team
QB - 3 3 - Chiefs
TE - 2 2 - Packers, Seahawks, Commanders
WR - 5 1 - Bills, Cowboys, Jets, Vikings, Saints
RB - 4

Overview - Dennis drafted Josh Allen and Travis Kelce to open the draft, then focused heavily on adding elite wide receivers before shifting to running back, where he found three young talented backups but no starters. He then added Zach Wilson and Carson Wentz to compete for his QB2 spot, finishing with an emerging tight end in Irv Smith Jr. and some uncertain upside depth options.  

Composition - Dennis chose to draft an extra QB and TE with one more WR than RB. He also was one of only two teams to draft three players from the same team, the Chiefs, with multiple players from four different teams total, the second most of all managers.

Strengths - Overall youth and depth, Commanders stack (Carson Wentz and Terry McLaurin), and he could have the No. 1 overall quarterback and tight end.

Weaknesses - Limited overall production in Year 1 and none of the running backs are currently the starter for their team.

Best Pick - A.J. Dillon at 7.01, great value for a running back you can start weekly that offers top-24 production with upside if Aaron Jones gets injured.

Projection - Expect this team to be a middle-of-the-pack team initially that rises in rankings next year because of all the youth, and has a chance to overperform this season if some of the potential players like Kenneth Walker III, Jarvis Landry, or Mecole Hardman succeed.

 

Team #2 - Phil Clark

Pick Player Pos. Team
1.02 Justin Herbert QB Chargers
2.11 D’Andre Swift RB Lions
3.02 Deebo Samuel WR 49ers
4.11 Diontae Johnson WR Steelers
5.02 Michael Pittman WR Colts
6.11 J.K. Dobbins RB Ravens
7.02 Matt Ryan QB Colts
8.11 Damien Harris RB Patriots
9.02 Christian Kirk WR Jaguars
10.11 Garrett Wilson WR Jets
11.02 Dawson Knox TE Bills
12.11 Kenneth Gainwell RB Eagles
13.02 Robert Woods WR Titans
14.11 Austin Hooper TE Titans

Team Composition

Composition By Position Composition By NFL Team
QB - 2 3 - 
TE - 2 2 - Colts, Titans 
WR - 6 1 - Chargers, Lions, 49ers, Steelers, Ravens, Patriots, Jaguars, Jets, Bills, Eagles
RB - 4

Overview - Phil went heavy on the combination of youth and production throughout the draft including players like Justin Herbert, D'Andre Swift, and Deebo Samuel with a few veterans sprinkled in like Matt Ryan, Robert Woods, and Austin Hooper. He also placed an emphasis on wide receivers drafting five of them in his first ten picks, the most of any team at that point in the draft.

Composition - Phil chose to draft only two QBs, with an extra TE with two more WRs than RBs. He also had multiple players from only two teams, the Colts, and Titans, which ended up being quite common.

Strengths - Depth and youth at wide receiver, Colts stack (Matt Ryan and Michael Pittman), and overall youth.

Weaknesses - The QB2 position (Matt Ryan) is older with limited upside, and two of his receiving options (Robert Woods and Austin Hooper) are both from the Titans, a low-volume passing offense.

Best Pick - Dawson Knox at 11.02, great value for a starting tight end who possesses touchdown upside that suits best ball and youth for dynasty, in a potent offense.

Projection - This team will go as far as Matt Ryan will take them, relying heavily on their depth and talent at wide receiver with some question marks at running back but a solid tight end and lots of youth for the future.

 

Team # 3 - Kyle Lindemann

Pick Player Pos. Team
1.03 Jonathan Taylor RB Colts
2.10 Stefon Diggs WR Bills
3.03 Matthew Stafford QB Rams
4.10 Keenan Allen WR Chargers
5.03 DJ Moore WR Panthers
6.10 Antonio Gibson RB Commanders
7.03 Marquise Brown WR Ravens
8.10 Adam Thielen WR Vikings
9.03 Ryan Tannehil QB Titans
10.10 Melvin Gordon RB Broncos
11.03 Marcus Mariota QB Falcons
12.10 Hunter Henry TE Patriots
13.03 Evan Engram TE Jaguars
14.10 Jamaal Williams RB Lions

Team Composition

Composition By Position Composition By NFL Team
QB - 3 3 - 
TE - 2 2 - 
WR - 5 1 - Colts, Bills, Rams, Chargers, Panthers, Commanders, Cardinals, Vikings, Titans, Broncos, Falcons, Patriots, Jaguars, Lions
RB - 4

Overview - Kyle was the first to go non-quarterback, selecting Jonathan Taylor at 1.03 before loading up on wide receivers in five of his next seven picks including Stefon Diggs, Keenan Allen, DJ Moore, and Marquise Brown, finishing up with two quarterbacks, two tight ends, and two running backs in the back half of his draft including Ryan Tannehill, Melvin Gordon, and Evan Engram.

Composition - Kyle chose to draft an extra QB and TE with one more WR than RB. He was also the only manager who did not select multiple players from the same team, completely diversifying his roster.

Strengths - A strong running back core with youth and upside, depth and youth at wide receiver, and could have the No. 1 overall running back.

Weaknesses - Quarterbacks are all outside the elite tier with limited upside from the QB2 position (Matt Ryan or Marcus Mariota), inconsistent production from TEs (Hunter Henry and Evan Engram) with a lower ceiling, and several older veterans that lack longevity.

Best Pick - Marquise Brown at 7.03, drafting a younger wide receiver with consistency at least the first six weeks and massive spike weeks is a great pick.

Projection - Expect this team to compete in Year 1, limited at times by the QB2 position and tight ends, finishing in the top half of the league this season before struggling in future years due to aging veterans.

 

Team #4 - Pierre Camus

Pick Player Pos. Team
1.04 Patrick Mahomes QB Chiefs
2.09 Joe Mixon RB Bengals
3.04 A.J. Brown WR Eagles
4.09 Kirk Cousins QB Vikings
5.04 Jaylen Waddle WR Dolphins
6.09 Elijah Mitchell RB 49ers
7.04 Allen Robinson WR Rams
8.09 T.J. Hockenson TE Lions
9.04 DeAndre Hopkins WR Cardinals
10.09 Chase Claypool WR Steelers
11.04 Rachaad White RB Buccaneers
12.09 Marquez Valdes-Scantling  WR Chiefs
13.04 Marlon Mack RB Texans
14.09 Tyrion Davis-Price RB 49ers

Team Composition

Composition By Position Composition By NFL Team
QB - 2 3 - 
TE - 1 2 - Chiefs, 49ers
WR - 6 1 - Bengals, Eagles, Vikings, Dolphins, Rams, Lions, Cardinals, Steelers, Buccaneers, Texans
RB - 5

Overview - Pierre started with Patrick Mahomes, alternating quarterback/running back/wide receiver in his first six picks acquiring players like Joe Mixon, AJ Brown, Kirk Cousins, and Jaylen Waddle before drafting TJ Hockenson and adding additional players with upside including Chase Claypool, Marques Valdes-Scantling, Tyrion Davis-Price, and Rachaad White.

Composition - Pierre chose to roster only two QBs and one TE allowing for greater depth at the other two positions where he had one more WR than RB. He also drafted multiple players from the same team twice, the Chiefs and 49ers, a common occurrence.

Strengths - Lots of depth at the wide receiver and running back position, a high upside tight end with youth, and an elite starter in the QB1 spot.

Weaknesses - The QB2 position (Kirk Cousins) lacks a ceiling for best ball, and the running back core is less involved in the receiving game, reducing their total points in a full-PPR format.

Best Pick - Jaylen Waddle at 5.04, an opportunistic pick, drafting a player that was undeniably the end of a wide receiver tier with high upside who will contribute weekly.

Projection - This is a strong early contender, especially once DeAndre Hopkins returns, with a nice balance of youth and production that could bode well in the future.

 

Team #5 - Josh Constantinou

Pick Player Pos. Team
1.05 Lamar Jackson QB Ravens
2.08 CeeDee Lamb WR Cowboys
3.05 Mark Andrews TE Ravens
4.08 Tee Higgins WR Bengals
5.05 James Conner RB Cardinals
6.08 Gabriel Davis WR Bills
7.05 Jerry Jeudy WR Broncos
8.08 Daniel Jones QB Giants
9.05 Kareem Hunt RB Browns
10.08 Kadarius Toney WR Giants
11.05 Allen Lazard WR Packers
12.08 Darrell Henderson RB Rams
13.05 Darrel Williams RB Cardinals
14.08 Gerald Everett TE Chargers

Team Composition

Composition By Position Composition By NFL Team
QB - 2 3 - 
TE - 2 2 - Ravens, Cardinals, Giants
WR - 6 1 - Cowboys, Bengals, Bills, Broncos, Browns, Packers, Rams, Chargers  
RB - 4

Overview - I started with my second-favorite quarterback Lamar Jackson, completing that stack two picks later with Mark Andrews, loading up on young productive wide receivers like CeeDee Lamb, Tee Higgins, Gabriel Davis, and Jerry Jeudy, finishing with depth at running back and a couple of upside wide receivers including Allen Lazard and Kadarius Toney.

Composition - I chose to roster only two QBs with an extra TE, and two more WRs than RBs. I also drafted multiple players from three different teams, the Ravens, Cardinals, and Giants, which was about average.

Strengths - An elite stack with Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews, an upside stack with Daniel Jones and Kadarius Toney, lots of youth at wide receiver, and could have the No. 1 overall tight end.

Weaknesses - QB2 position (Daniel Jones) has lots to prove, and less depth at running back partly because James Conner and Darrel Williams are on the same team with only one of my running backs as the current starter for their team.

Best Pick - Gabriel Davis at 6.08, with huge touchdown upside and secure volume in an elite offense, he's a perfect pairing of youth for dynasty and spike weeks for best ball.

Projection - Expect my team to compete in Year 1, limited by the potential for Daniel Jones to lose his job and my lack of depth at running back, with lots of youth to contend in the future.

 

Team #6 - Justin Carter

Pick Player Pos. Team
1.06 Joe Burrow QB Bengals
2.07 Dak Prescott QB Cowboys
3.06 Nick Chubb RB Browns
4.07 Tyreek Hill WR Dolphins
5.06 Ezekiel Elliot RB Cowboys
6.07 Amari Cooper WR Browns
7.06 Amon-Ra St. Brown WR Lions
8.07 Mac Jones QB Patriots
9.06 Zach Ertz TE Cardinals
10.07 Chase Edmonds RB Dolphins
11.06 Rhamondre Stevenson RB Patriots
12.07 Cole Kmet TE Bears
13.06 Rondale Moore WR Cardinals
14.07 Khalil Herbert RB Bears

Team Composition

Composition By Position Composition By NFL Team
QB - 3 3 - 
TE - 2 2 - Cowboys, Browns, Dolphins, Patriots, Cardinals, Bears
WR - 4 1 - Bengals, Lions, 
RB - 5

Overview - Justin was the only team to start with back-to-back quarterbacks, Joe Burrow and Dak Prescott, before drafting his starting running backs and wide receivers including Nick Chubb, Tyreek Hill, and Amari Cooper, then grabbing Mac Jones and Zach Ertz, finishing with three intriguing running backs in his final five picks.

Composition - Justin chose to roster an extra QB and TE, and actually had more RB than WR, as one of only two teams to do so. He also drafted multiple players from six different teams, the Cowboys, Browns, Dolphins, Patriots, Cardinals, and Bears, which was the most of any team and accounted for all but two of his total players.

Strengths - Most talent and youth at the quarterback position of any team (Joe Burrow, Dak Prescott, and Mac Jones), strong depth at running back, and a nice balance of production and youth from his tight ends (Zach Ertz and Cole Kmet).

Weaknesses - Very limited depth at wide receiver with only three locked-in starters and only two of five running backs are true starters.

Best Pick - Chase Edmonds at 10.07, currently locked in as the receiving back in an improved Dolphins offense, who may take the lead role, making him a nice pick in a full-PPR format.

Projection - This team could compete right away despite being limited by the lack of depth and quality at the wide receiver position, while set up nicely for the future with lots of youth.

 

Team #7 - Matt Terelle

Pick Player Pos. Team
1.07 Tom Brady QB Buccaneers
2.06 Derrick Henry RB Titans
3.07 Trey Lance QB 49ers
4.06 Aaron Jones RB Packers
5.07 Cam Akers RB Rams
6.06 Mike Williams WR Chargers
7.07 Courtland Sutton WR Broncos
8.06 Dalton Schultz TE Cowboys
9.07 Russell Gage WR Buccaneers
10.06 Miles Sanders WR Eagles
11.07 Rob Gronkowski TE Buccaneers
12.06 Tyler Boyd WR Bengals
13.07 Mitchell Trubisky QB Steelers
14.06 Albert Okwuegbunam TE Broncos

Team Composition

Composition By Position Composition By NFL Team
QB - 3 3 - Buccaneers
TE - 3 2 - Broncos, 
WR - 4 1 - Titans, 49ers, Packers, Rams, Chargers, Cowboys, Eagles, Bengals, Steelers
RB - 4

Overview - Matt spent his first and third picks on Tom Brady and Trey Lance, drafting Derrick Henry, Aaron Jones, and Cam Akers to close out his first five picks before focusing mostly on wide receivers and tight ends down the stretch including Dalton Schultz, Mike Williams, Courtland Sutton, and Tyler Boyd, along with Mitchell Trubisky.

Composition - Matt chose to roster an extra QB and two extra TEs, the only team to draft three total, along with an even amount of RBs and WRs. He was also the second team to draft three players from the same team, the Buccaneers, with the Broncos as the other team he had multiple players from.

Strengths - A strong core of quarterbacks (Tom Brad, Trey Lance, and Mitchell Trubisky) with lots of ceiling, all four of his running backs are currently starters for their teams and lots of depth at tight end (Dalton Schultz, Rob Gronkowski, and Albert Okwuegbunam).

Weaknesses - Lacks an elite wide receiver with minimal depth at the position, has concerns about age and longevity, and chose to draft a third tight end to mitigate the risk of retirement for Rob Gronkowski, who has in fact since retired.

Best Pick - Trey Lance at 3.07, this was an opportunistic pick, drafting a quarterback who fell further than expected and possesses both a massive ceiling for best ball and youth for dynasty.

Projection - Expect this team to compete in Year 1, limited by the lack of depth and quality at the wide receiver position, with some questions about age and longevity for the future.

 

Team #8 - Keith Hernandez

Pick Player Pos. Team
1.08 Christian McCaffrey RB Panthers
2.05 Ja'Marr Chase WR Bengals
3.08 Aaron Rodgers QB Packers
4.05 Leonard Fournette RB Buccaneers
5.08 George Kittle TE 49ers
6.05 Brandin Cooks WR Texans
7.08 Darnell Mooney WR Bears
8.05 Clyde Edwards-Helaire RB Chiefs
9.08 Hunter Renfrow WR Raiders
10.05 Jameis Winston QB Saints
11.08 Tyler Lockett WR Seahawks
12.05 Nyheim Hines RB Colts
13.08 Noah Fant TE Seahawks
14.05 J.D. McKissic RB Commanders

Team Composition

Composition By NFL Team
QB - 2 3 - 
TE - 2 2 - Seahawks
WR - 5 1 - Panthers, Bengals, Packers, Buccaneers, 49ers, Texans, Bears, Chiefs, Raiders, Saints, Colts, Commanders
RB - 5

Overview - Keith was the second team to start with a running back acquiring Christian McCaffrey, and the second-last team to draft a quarterback, taking Matthew Stafford in Round 3, while taking George Kittle in Round 5 and loading up on wide receivers and running backs such as Fournette and Chase, before adding depth at all four positions including Jameis Winston, Tyler Lockett, and Noah Fant.

Composition - Keith chose to roster an extra TE, along with an even amount of RBs and WRs. He also drafted multiple players from only one team, the Seahawks, the second-lowest of all managers.

Strengths - Lots of depth at running back all of which have pass-catching in their profile, strong depth at tight end (George Kittle and Noah Fant), and could have the No. 1 overall running back.

Weaknesses - There are concerns about age and longevity, particularly at quarterback, and the QB2 position (Jameis Winston) has health and performance question marks entering this year.

Best Pick - Ja'Marr Chase at 2.05, an immensely talented wide receiver who checks all the boxes for this format and should have been drafted earlier is a great pick.

Projection - Expect this team to compete in Year 1 as long as Jameis Winston is healthy and remains productive, with several aging players impacting their depth for the future.

 

Team #9 - Chris Gregory

Pick Player Pos. Team
1.09 Justin Jefferson WR Vikings
2.04 Russell Wilson QB Broncos
3.09 Saquon Barkley RB Giants
4.04 Alvin Kamara RB Saints
5.09 Justin Fields QB Bears
6.04 David Montgomery RB Bears
7.09 Rashod Bateman WR Ravens
8.04 Treylon Burks WR Titans
9.09 Brandon Aiyuk WR 49ers
10.04 James Cook RB Bills
11.09 Kenny Pickett QB Steelers
12.04 Pat Freiermuth TE Steelers
13.09 Michael Gallup WR Cowboys
14.04 Tyler Allgeier RB Falcons

Team Composition

Composition By Position Composition By NFL Team
QB - 3 3 - 
TE - 1 2 - Bears, Steelers
WR - 5 1 - Vikings, Broncos, Giants, Saints, Ravens, Titans, 49ers, Bills, Cowboys, Falcons  
RB - 5

Overview - Chris was the first team to take a wide receiver, grabbing Justin Jefferson, before drafting Russell Wilson and Justin Fields with two of his next four picks, then adding depth at wide receiver and running back including Rashod Bateman, David Montgomery, and James Cook, finishing with Pat Freiermuth and the currently injured Michael Gallup.

Composition - Chris chose to roster an extra QB, along with an even amount of RBs and WRs. He also drafted multiple players from only two teams, the Bears and Steelers, a frequent occurrence.

Strengths - Lots of young, talented wide receivers, additional depth and youth at quarterback, and a talented young tight end (Pat Freiermuth) who could become elite.

Weaknesses - The starting running backs have questions about durability and health, and many of the wide receivers are unproven.

Best Pick - Pat Freiermuth at 12.04, to acquire an ascending tight end that possesses both touchdown upside for best ball and youth for dynasty in the 12th round is impressive.

Projection - As long as Justin Fields can produce and/or Kenny Pickett wins the starting job, this team could make a playoff run with lots of youth to contend in the future.

 

Team #10 - Andersen Pickard

Pick Player Pos. Team
1.10 Najee Harris RB Steelers
2.03 Jalen Hurts QB Eagles
3.10 Javonte Williams RB Broncos
4.03 Deshaun Watson QB Texans
5.10 Breece Hall RB Jets
6.03 Chris Godwin WR Buccaneers
7.10 Drake London WR Falcons
8.03 Elijah Moore WR Jets
9.10 Chris Olave WR Saints
10.03 Dallas Goedert TE Eagles
11.10 Dameon Pierce RB Texans
12.03 Mike Gesicki TE Dolphins
13.10 James Robinson RB Jaguars
14.03 George Pickens WR Steelers

Team Composition

Composition By Position Composition By NFL Team
QB - 2  3 - 
TE - 2 2 - Steelers, Eagles, Jets
WR - 5 1 - Broncos, Browns, Buccaneers, Falcons, Saints, Texans, Dolphins, Jaguars 
RB - 5

Overview - Andersen also went running back in Round 1 with Najee Harris, before drafting Jalen Hurts and Deshaun Watson, Javonte Williams, and Breece Hall, followed by a run of wide receivers taking four in a row including Chris Godwin, Drake London, and Elijah Moore, finishing up with Dallas Goedert, Mike Gesicki and more depth.

Composition - Andersen chose to roster an extra TE, along with an even amount of RBs and WRs. He also drafted multiple players from three different teams, the Steelers, Eagles, and Jets, which was close to average.

Strengths - A solid young stack with Jalen Hurts and Dallas Goedert, three elite young running backs, and an overall emphasis on youth.

Weaknesses - If Deshaun Watson is suspended there be no QB2, and while the receiving core is young and exciting none are elite as of yet.

Best Pick - Elijah Moore at 8.03, acquiring a talented young receiver that could still be the WR1 for the Jets, that late, is a nice bargain.

Projection - Expect this team to struggle in 2022 if Deshaun Watson is suspended and the young receivers don't emerge, but to excel in the future given the plethora of young talent.

 

Team #11 - Brad Camara

Pick Player Pos. Team
1.11 Austin Ekeler RB Chargers
2.02 Cooper Kupp WR Rams
3.11 Kyle Pitts TE Falcons
4.02 Derek Carr QB Raiders
5.11 Josh Jacobs RB Raiders
6.02 Tua Tagovailoa QB Dolphins
7.11 DeVonta Smith WR Eagles
8.02 JuJu Smith-Schuster WR Steelers
9.11 Devin Singletary RB Bills
10.02 Isaiah Spiller RB Chargers
11.11 Michael Carter RB Jets
12.02 Davis Mills QB Texans
13.11 Jameson Williams WR Lions
14.02 Kenny Golladay WR Giants

Team Composition

Composition By Position Composition By NFL Team
QB - 3  3 - 
TE - 1 2 - Chargers, Raiders, 
WR - 5 1 - Rams, Dolphins, Eagles, Chiefs, Bills, Jets, Texans, Lions, Giants
RB - 5

Overview - Brad was the last team to draft a quarterback, waiting until Round 4 to take Derek Carr followed by Tua Tagovailoa in Round 6, while grabbing an elite player at all three other positions to start, including Kyle Pitts as the third tight end drafted. He then spent the remainder of the draft adding wide receivers like JuJu Smith-Schuster, Jameson Williams, and DeVonta Smith, and running backs like Devin Singletary, and Michael Carter, along with Davis Mills.

Composition - Brad chose to roster an extra QB, along with an even amount of RBs and WRs. He also drafted multiple players from only two different teams, the Chargers, and Raiders, which was the most common amount.

Strengths - Lots of young talent, especially at tight end and wide receiver positions, strong depth at quarterback, and could have the No. 1 overall wide receiver.

Weaknesses - Most of the running backs have a lower ceiling aside from Austin Ekeler, and the wide receiver core is mostly complimentary options, some of which have health concerns, aside from Cooper Kupp.

Best Pick - Kyle Pitts at 3.11, a tight end who likely offers top-5 production this year and has by far the most longevity of anyone at the position is a great value at the end of Round 3.

Projection - Another playoff contender as long as one of the receivers aside from Cooper Kupp can produce, while set up nicely to contend in future years as well.

 

Team #12 - Aaron Knight

Pick Player Pos. Team
1.12 Kyler Murray QB Cardinals
2.01 Dalvin Cook RB Vikings
3.12 Mike Evans WR Buccaneers
4.01 Darren Waller TE Raiders
5.12 Trevor Lawrence QB Jaguars
6.01 Travis Etienne RB Jaguars
7.12 Cordarrelle Patterson RB Falcons
8.01 Michael Thomas WR Saints
9.12 Rashaad Penny RB Seahawks
10.01 Skyy Moore WR Chiefs
11.12 Jared Goff QB Lions
12.01 Alexander Mattison RB Vikings
13.12 Christian Watson WR Packers
14.01 David Njoku TE Browns

Team Composition

Composition By Position Composition By NFL Team
QB - 3  3 - 
TE - 2 2 - Vikings, Jaguars, 
WR - 4 1 - Cardinals, Buccaneers, Raiders, Falcons, Saints, Seahawks, Chiefs, Lions, Packers, Browns 
RB - 5

Overview - Aaron started with Kyler Murray, before rotating through all four positions grabbing Dalvin Cook, Mike Evans, Darren Waller, and Trevor Lawrence, then adding wide receivers and running backs such as Michael Thomas, Skyy Moore, and Travis Etienne before again rotating through all four positions to finish the draft with upside options.

Composition - Aaron chose to roster an extra QB and TE, along with one more RB than WR, one of only two teams to do so. He also drafted multiple players from only two different teams, the Vikings, and Jaguars, just like many of the other managers.

Strengths - Talent and depth at quarterback (Kyler Murray, Trevor Lawrence, and Jared Goff) with the combination of production and talent at running back including four of five who are currently the starter for their team.

Weaknesses - The wide receiver core is shallow and mostly unproven and the overall age and longevity of his team could be problematic.

Best Pick - Kyler Murray at 1.12, drafting an elite quarterback in a Superflex format who possesses a high ceiling at the end of Round 1 is an incredible value.

Projection - This team is mostly built to win now but might be limited by their wide receiver depth unless a rookie emerges, with aging veterans impacting their ability to contend in the future.

 

Summary

With so many different format variations it is difficult to draft a perfect team. As expected each team is set up to excel in some areas while limited in others. With this in mind, there are four awards below to highlight a range of areas including the best draft pick, the best stack, the best team in 2022, and the best dynasty team.

Best draft pick - Kyler Murray (Team #12 Aaron Knight), acquiring an elite quarterback in a Superflex draft at the end of Round 1 is unheard of and warrants the best draft pick.

Best stack - Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews (Team # 5 Josh Constantinou), while the cost of this stack was the highest, the return could be sky-high, which makes it worth the investment. If the award were based solely on ADP then Jalen Hurts and Dallas Goedert (Team # 10 Andersen Pickard) would be in consideration with an honorable mention to Matt Ryan and Michael Pittman (Team #2 Phil Clark) and Carson Wentz and Terry McLaurin (Team #1 Dennis Sosic).

Best team in 2022 - This was by far the most difficult to decide as there were several teams that will compete in Year 1. After considering the combination of each team's starting lineup, overall depth, and strength across all positions, the winner is Team #8 - Keith Hernandez.

Best dynasty team - Team 10, Andersen Pickard. There were a few teams in contention for this award but the pairing of youth across all positions with future production and upside is too exceptional to pass up.

This draft was a ton of fun and an excellent opportunity to trial different approaches. Mock drafts are a great way to test out strategies and evaluate the current landscape. This is something all fantasy football managers will benefit from and are encouraged to try out multiple times this offseason.
