Fantasy football mock draft: 10-team, PPR

The NFL draft and free agency are behind us, coaching staffs and rosters are set, and training camp is just a couple of months away. That means it’s time for fantasy football fanatics to start gearing up for the 2021 campaign!

With that in mind, we gathered our fantasy football experts to kick off the season with our first mock draft, a 10-team PPR format. For those new to fantasy, that means every time one of your players catches a pass, he earns one extra fantasy point.

Trump Jr.’s False Noncitizen Voting Tweet

Amid a contentious Florida recount, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a six-year-old, and outdated, story to suggest hundreds of thousands of noncitizens could have voted in the state. The story includes an update saying just 85 noncitizens were ultimately removed from the state’s voter rolls in 2012.

You’re Not Crazy: Pandemic Paranoia Is A Real Thing

According to the experts at CNN, it’s perfectly normal to be feeling a little paranoid after 11 months of pandemic lockdown. So to whomever at NASA decided to embed secret messages inside the Mars rover’s parachute, you’re not helping! We have enough conspiracy theories flying around here on Earth.

We are less than two weeks away from when some NCAA schools will start to hold their pro days, giving NFL teams a first-hand look at the prospects who will be available during the 2021 NFL Draft.

Some in the GOP Parrot Far-Right Talk of a Coming Civil War

Trump wants Supreme Court to overturn Pa. election results

How Trumpists Prey on Loneliness, and Loneliness Preys on Trumpists

The story of our era may be one about loneliness, isolation, and a lack of community. Scientists tell us that social isolation is as bad for your health as smoking or not getting adequate sleep. COVID-19 took an already bad situation and made it worse. Meanwhile, (anti)social media does nothing to solve the problem, and likely exacerbates it.

Wilson, R. – Sea (QB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks (6/23) Advice: Russell Wilson will get drafted as a top-12 Fantasy quarterback, but the demand for him will be tepid. That’s because he was a massive letdown to end 2020, sinking from 34.4 Fantasy points per game through the first half of the season to 18.6 in the second half. That happened because Wilson threw about five fewer attempts per game for more than two yards fewer per throw, and he slipped from 3.5 touchdowns per game (seriously!) to 1.5. DK Metcalf’s disappearing act certainly played a role. Now there’s uncertainty over what the Seahawks offense will look like, especially with ex-Rams pass-game coordinator Shane Waldron coming in to call plays and Pete Carroll’s run-first mindset overseeing everything. But do not lose sight of the fact that Wilson has finished in the top six among quarterbacks in Fantasy points per game in four of his past six years, or that he’s got a supremely talented receiving corps and a pretty good offensive line, too. Last year’s ending left Fantasy managers frustrated, but there are reasons for some optimism. If someone in your draft reaches for Wilson, let them. But if Wilson slides into Round 6 or 7, after the likes of Dak Prescott, then consider him a darn good value. (CBSSports.com)

Williams, M. – LAC (WR33)

Mike Williams Fantasy Football Outlook (2021) (7/9) Advice: How often can you find a wide receiver being drafted outside the top 40 who’s capable of posting WR1-type numbers? Williams fits that bill. He already has a 1,000-yard season on his resume. He also has a 10-touchdown season on it. He also happens to have one of the brightest young stars as his quarterback with little else on the depth chart outside of Keenan Allen. Health has been the biggest question mark for Williams, but once you’re outside the top-40 wide receivers, there’s hardly guaranteed production on the board, so take the upside. (FantasyPros.com)

Howard, O.J. – TB (TE)

2021 fantasy player outlook for O.J. Howard, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6/23) Advice: O.J. Howard enjoyed a very productive training camp in 2020, but there was very little buzz surrounding his Fantasy stock after the team signed Rob Gronkowski. After all, how much production could we expect from a potentially No. 2 TE option in a Bruce Arians offense that is typically not very TE-friendly? Howard went on to have a bigger role than expected with 19 targets and two TDs in four games. The talent that got him drafted in the first round of the 2017 class is still there, but he’s more of a wait-and-see play than someone to target in your 2021 drafts. (CBSSports.com)

Trump attacks your family? Your wife? Your mom? No big deal in today’s GOP.

On Jan. 6, supporters of Donald Trump broke into the Capitol in an effort to overturn the 2020 presidential election. While doing so, some of them chanted “Hang Mike Pence,” citing the vice president whose support for their plot was deemed insufficient. They got dangerously close to being able to make good on that threat.
As they were marauding through the Capitol, Trump offered his first thoughts on the siege. He took to Twitter not to call off the dogs, but to attack Pence. It’s a tweet that, we’ve come to find out, came despite Trump apparently having been apprised of the danger Pence and others faced.
Despite all of this, Pence’s brother, Rep. Greg Pence (R-Ind.), on Wednesday voted against a bipartisan commission to look into what transpired that day.

Grant, J. – Mia (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Jakeem Grant, WR, Miami Dolphins (6/23) Advice: Jakeem Grant will again be a reserve receiver and return man for the Dolphins this season. He has minimal Fantasy value and is only worth drafting in leagues that reward points for return yardage. Offensively, Grant isn’t expected to produce at a high level, and he averaged just 5.4 PPR points per game in 2020. But as a return man, Grant had 29 punt returns for 330 yards and a touchdown, along with six kickoff returns for 129 yards. If you get points for return yards then consider Grant with a late-round pick. (CBSSports.com)

Engram, E. – NYG (TE)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Evan Engram, TE, New York Giants (6/23) Advice: Evan Engram struggled in 2020, and now he could be fighting for his starting job this season with the addition of Kyle Rudolph in New York. Engram is only worth drafting with a late-round pick in deeper leagues. While Engram is definitely the most talented tight end for the Giants — and among the most talented tight ends in the NFL — he struggled with drops and poor play in 2020. It left him with minimal Fantasy production, and he scored at least 10 PPR points just six times. We doubt Rudolph will play ahead of Engram to start the season, but there could be a change in playing time during the year. And the Giants don’t need to rely on Engram as much with the addition of Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney as well, along with Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and Saquon Barkley still on the field. Hopefully, Engram surprises us in 2021 and can remain a must-start Fantasy tight end, but he has a lot to prove after disappointing us in 2020. (CBSSports.com)
