Fantasy Football Mock draft 2020. The Counselor shares a solid robust RB strategy, drafting from the 12th position.
This mock draft went as planned landing 4 Running backs in the first 4 rounds. Drafting from the 12 pick makes your team look a lot different than if you were drafting with the first few picks. You may want to consider drafting a WR at the end of round one but it was hard to pass up on Todd Gurley and David Johnson early on. These studs are primed for a massive workload and volume. Not to mention they are not in a running back committee. They are free and clear of a guy coming in and taking that volume away from them. While most people are drafting Nick Chubb and Austin Ekeler at the end of round one and early-round 2, the Counselor does things differently. He goes for the true workhorse guys. Chubb is there with Kareem Hunt and they will both eat, and you will lose a lot of fantasy points. Ekeler, lost Phillip Rivers and maxed out at 132 rushing attempts. While the PPR points will be there for Austin, I find it very hard to trust him and invest a 2nd round pick on the guy.
Make sure you implement the robust RB strategy and secure those workhorses early on, as they won’t be there after rd 5. You will be looking at guys like Jordan Howard and Phillip Lindsay if you wait too long. There is a ton of depth at the wider receiver position and you can get a lot of WR 1’s later on in the draft. Don’t gamble with grabbing RB’s in committee’s later. Secure those RB’s WR’s are a dime a dozen, so hold off on them.
