4for4 Staff 14-Team PPR Draftmaster Recap
Starting in early August, some of the staff and contributors here at 4for4 Fantasy Football took part in what is now our annual mock draft. This will be the fourth official year of the event.
Two year ago, site owner Josh Moore put up money to the winner in an effort to make it as competitive as possible, and last year we even expanded to include both a PPR and a standard league with generous first-place prizes.
The format is draftmaster, or best ball. We draft 16 rounds and don’t make any changes throughout the season as host site MyFantasyLeague.com does all the work and calculates our best lineups for us then calculates the points. Teams weren’t allowed to draft more than 1 kicker or 1 defense and no more than 2 quarterbacks. Our starting lineup for this league consists of 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 flex (TE, RB, WR), 1 K and 1 defense. There were 14 teams in this year’s PPR format, up from 12 a year ago. You can see the league here.
Obviously things are pretty competitive with a bunch of guys who know a lot about fantasy football, but at the same time I always think it's a good way to get inside everyone’s mind as far as strategy goes. So once again, after the drafts concluded, I asked everyone a series of questions that I thought readers might find helpful as their draft days approach over the next few weeks.
Last year, John Paulsen won the PPR league and yours truly came out on top in the standard league. If you read the lead to my perfect draft story, drafting 5th in a 10-team league, you know I went 0-for-4 in my finals last year, so it was nice to come away with a win somewhere. How I can come out on top against fantasy experts but not my drunken college friends, I’ll never know… but I’ll take it.
This piece will strictly focus on our PPR league. Participating were: site owner Josh Moore (@4for4_Josh), Senior Editor John Paulsen (@4for4_John), Scout Brandon Niles (@2guysbrandon), Scout Andy Rioux (@andyrioux), Support Expert Matt Rittle (@ffrittle), Luis Escalante, Contributor Denny Carter (@CDCarter13), Scout Dale Lolley (@dlolleyor), Scout Chris Kucharski (@CKSportsBlitz), Injury Expert Russell Manalastas (@russmanalastas), Scout Jordan Heck (@jordanHeckFF), Scout Scot Berggren and Scout Bob Harris (@footballdiehard).
Which Way Do I Go?
Who goes in the first two rounds is always a big deal, and it’s especially worth breaking down in any expert mock draft. In our league, eight running backs went off the board in the first round, five wide receivers and one TE.
When you hear people talking about fantasy drafting strategy this year, the big change seems to be owners addressing stud wide receivers early because RB value seems to be down and available in later rounds. So I was a little surprised by running backs outnumbering wideouts this year. In fact, the first five picks were all RBs: Bob took LeSean McCoy with the top pick, Luis took Jamaal Charles, Chris took Matt Forte, Dale took Eddie Lacy and Brandon took Adrian Peterson.
For Brandon, who is also my co-host in the Discuss Your Team forum here at 4for4, he was a little surprised by who was there when it was his turn at 1.5.
“Picking fifth, I was expecting to go WR-WR in this one, but with Adrian Peterson still on the board, I changed my strategy due to the available backs and went RB-RB in the first two rounds, but I still intended on waiting for TE's and QB's,” Brandon said.
Brandon wasn’t the only one to go RB-RB with his first two picks. Bob of course took McCoy first and then with 2.14 he went Toby Gerhart, who is expected to do big things with the Jaguars. Matt selected Montee Ball with his first pick and followed it up with Marshawn Lynch in the second.
For Bob, it was all part of his plan based on picking first.
“Given the first pick overall, and the resulting long delay before picks two and three, I was hoping to start off with LeSean McCoy, my top-rated back, before following up by landing another solid back with upside and a high-end wideout,” Bob said.
Meanwhile, Matt allowed the draft come to him.
“I tend to have a lot of ‘show up and see what happens’ in my drafts, or perhaps I should instead say I'm very flexible. It's problematic to have a set strategy going in," he said. "That said, the 2 WR format guided me to devaluing WRs, and the 14 teams made the values of top RBs increase a lot. You'll often see TE and QB value increase in 14 teamers, so I wanted to be aware of trends on those positions, for sure.”
Only two teams started off going WR-WR with their first two picks. John nabbed Calvin Johnson and then came back and picked Alshon Jeffery in the second, and Jordan took Julio Jones and Antonio Brown.
“Drafting in the middle of the first round, I decided the value was in the WR position (or Jimmy Graham),” John said.
The majority of the teams, six, did a RB-WR combo with their first two picks, including myself. While no one really admitted that was their strategy going in, it was something I intended to do picking eighth. I love to go running back with my first pick, and had highlighted Ball about five times before eventually going with Demaryius Thomas.
I’ve seemed to land the 7-8-9 area with a lot of mocks this year, so with my second pick I’ve been targeting Ball or Giovani Bernard. However, I knew neither were going to be there when my pick of 2.7 came around. But, I ended up with Andre Ellington, so I really liked the way my first two picks worked out with that strategy for a 14-team league.
Others who went with the RB-WR combo were Dale (Lacy, Randall Cobb), Scot (Dez Bryant, LeVeon Bell), Andy (A.J. Green, Arian Foster), Denny (DeMarco Murray, Jordy Nelson) and Russell (Giovani Bernard, Brandon Marshall).
Josh broke the early RB streak and took TE Jimmy Graham at 1.6. His philosophy was to go TE-QB and he ended up getting Peyton Manning with pick 2.9. He pretty much used a go-for-it strategy all throughout the draft.
“In a deeper league like a 14-teamer, I decided to start elite TE-QB and cobble together RBs and WRs later,” Josh said. “Being that only first place in this draft pays out, I also went with a couple of boom or bust picks in Christine Michael and Josh Gordon. Screw second place.”
Luis’ strategy was to just take guys who have stayed healthy in the past, but it proved hard to do early on with the value available.
“I was sniped a lot as this is the first industry draft I've been in,” he said. “But for the most part, I feel comfortable and felt a few players fell. For example, even though Gronk doesn't fit the ‘no injury prone guys,’ I feel he's going to have a huge year,” Luis said.
Did It Work?
Usually everyone likes their team after a draft, and for the most part, comments after this draft were positive. Personally, I love my WRs but feel I’m a little thin at RB. Guys like Ellington, Shane Vereen and Chris Johnson should do well in the format for me, but I see a lot of up and down weeks coming from them.
I wasn’t the only one feeling thin at RB though.
“I am happy to have landed Jimmy Graham and Peyton Manning in the first two rounds, and I'm quite happy with my WRs. In a 14-teamer though, something always has to suffer, and for me it is my RBs," Josh said. "Although I do believe they can plug holes and get the job done, I don't have any studs and don't have much depth at RB: Joique Bell, Danny Woodhead, Fred Jackson, Christine Michael and Ronnie Hillman."
What all of us who desired more at RB had in common was we drafted in about the middle of the first round. That was after the stud RBs went off the board, and it was perhaps a bit too early to take RBs like Bernard and Ball at that point. As a result, though, we all feel strong at WR. The good news is all the backs myself, John, Scot and Josh were able to draft are pretty good names to target where we did and should provide stability as long as they stay healthy.
Not everyone feels left out at RB though. Matt and Brandon both felt they came away with quality at the position and it’s not a coincidence they picked at the top of the first round.
“Through four rounds, I had Ball, Lynch, Vincent Jackson and Larry Fitzgerald. That would be an adequate start in a 10 team league," Matt said. "However, I didn't want to continue hitting the WRs heavy, given the format. I was happy to see others not jumping on the QB train early on."
Waiting is the Hardest Part
Tom Petty likely wasn’t talking about fantasy football when he wrote that song, but I always think about it when I hear waiting on certain positions is wise.
Seems like over the last few years, you’re always being told to wait on this position or wait on that position. I try to think back to the 1990s and I don’t believe it used to be that way. (Editor's Note: I wouldn't rely too heavily on Scott's memories of the 90's. He spent the better part of that decade in a drunken haze). There were more kickers and defenses flying off the board early those years, and it’s kind of comical to think about it now. But with so many resources out there today, strategy in your draft has become very important to give you that extra edge. It seems like when you get a bunch of fantasy experts together to draft, everyone waits like they’re supposed to, often leaving me to wonder ‘did I take this guy too early?’
This year, outside of the top-three at quarterback and tight end, waiting is how you’re supposed to do it at those positions. Unfortunately, in a 14-team league, you can’t wait too long or you’re going to get left out, so timing was everything.
A little surprisingly, five QBs went off the board by pick 4.6: Manning 2.9, Brees 2.12, Aaron Rodgers 3.4, Matt Stafford 4.1 and then Andrew Luck at 4.6. After that, 22 players were drafted before there was another QB selected, and that was Cam Newton at 6.10 by Brandon – who admitted this was a homer pick. After that, there was a bit of a run with Robert Griffin III at 7.1, Nick Foles at 7.7, Tom Brady at 7.8 and Matt Ryan at 7.10.
As for TE, the top-three were off the board by pick 3.3. After that, Jordan Cameron was next at 4.4, but then we saw a lull before a run in rounds 6-8, which is probably going to be a pretty typical occurrence in most drafts. I think all these guys present great value for this point in drafts, and will likely produce some stud-like games along the way: Greg Olsen went at 6.5, Vernon Davis at 6.6, Jason Witten at 6.7, Jordan Reed at 6.14, Dennis Pitta at 7.14, Kyle Rudolph at 8.3 and Zach Ertz at 8.8.
Blue Light Specials
For those of you old enough to remember, K-Mart used to have a portable blue light flash at certain parts of the store where items would be discounted. Then an announcement would come over the loudspeaker letting shoppers know where to go. I remember my parents always running to see what items were going at bargain prices by the blue light. Fantasy football late round draft picks are very similar, and us scouts often get asked “who can I target in late rounds that will turn out to be of value.”
Fortunately for everyone, that’s a question I like to get an answer from by those who participates – selfishly, even for my own good.
Luis was happy to get Rashad Jennigns with pick 5.2 (remember, this is a 14-teamer). Now that David Wilson is no longer in the picture, RB2 duties are likely going to rookie Andre Williams, who I happened to see play in high school here in the Lehigh Valley in Eastern PA (Both he and the Cowboys Devin Street, while I’m dropping names, were covered at our family of newspapers). While Williams is looking good, Jennings is looking even better and is having a nice preseason. Getting RB value with the 72nd pick is a pretty big deal.
Josh is high on RB Fred Jackson, who he got with pick 8.9. Jackson finished as a top-15 back three of the last five seasons and should get his share of work again this season in a run-heavy offense in Buffalo.
John nabbed Panthers rookie WR Kelvin Benjamin in the 9th round and news on him continues to be positive now that he’s back at camp. He made a real nice TD catch in his opening preseason game and continues to be talked about as a WR1.
I have a good feeling about my pick at 15.8 in Malcom Floyd as long as he can stay healthy. I targeted guys later in the draft who have been in the news getting some positive press, and Floyd looks like he’s back this season after a terrible injury last year. He’s traditionally put up WR3 numbers before getting hurt.
For more of our favorite value picks, check out the comments section.
Once again I kept track of our drafts using PC Drafter. I was pretty amazed that a lot of the selections by all of the owners were PCD’s top pick or were at least very close to the top. It was reassuring to me as someone who likes to use the program.
Last year, PC Drafter predicted John as the top finisher in our PPR league, and sure enough, he was. So, its predictions are worth putting some stock into.
This year, the program picked Luis as the winner with Josh second and Chris third. Six teams were within 100 points of the projected starter points though, so this is shaping up to be quite a season.
This has turned into a pretty enjoyable, learning and competitive experience for me, and hopefully for everyone. Many of those who took part acknowledged they enjoy competing against guys who have made fantasy football a huge part of their lives.
And, hopefully everyone who reads this gets some extra insight for their upcoming drafts. How 4for4 scouts and contributors rank, and what they think about certain players, may be that last bit of information you need to influence you to hopefully make a solid pick and take your team the fantasy playoffs and eventually a championship.

What was your draft strategy? Given the first pick overall, and the resulting long delay before picks two and three, I was hoping to start off with LeSean McCoy (my top-rated back) before following up by landing another solid back with upside and a high-end wideout. 2. Did it work? No. I pre-drafted Rounds 2 and 3, but left a running back at the top of my list with the third pick. Ideally, I would have Pierre Garcon instead of Alfred Morris. 3. Biggest surprise? That I managed to land some wideouts that have the potential to come through with 4. In the draft, I regret... The pre-draft faux pas. Pay attention when drafting kids. 5. What was your favorite value pick? Cecil Shorts in Round 9. If I can get a full season out of him, he could get me 70-80 catches. 6. What did you learn/take away from this draft? Did I mention paying attention to your draft software, settings and pre-draft picks?

What was your draft strategy? My strategy in best ball leagues is always to set a consistent foundation (no injury "prone" guys) and then fill it up with guys that could break out with big weeks throughout the year. 2. Did it work? I was sniped a lot as this is the first "industry" draft I've been in, but for the most part, I feel comfortable and felt a few players fell. For example, even though Gronk doesn't fit the "no injury prone guys", I feel he's going to have a huge year. 3. Biggest surprise? QB's and RB's continue to fall, which I think is a great strategy in PPR. Load up on pass catchers then fill the rest later (unless value falls, of course). I also thought Denny got a huge bargain and 4.02 with Torrey Smith, he should put up WR1 #'s this year. 4. In the draft, I regret... I feel I jumped too early Hunter and Russ Wilson. Coming from a dynasty background, that's "cheap" but Hunter does fill the mold of huge boom/bust player that I like in best ball. 5. What was your favorite value pick? I thought Rashad Jennings being available a full round later than his normal PPR ADP was interesting. 6. What did you learn/take away from this draft? More than ever, I think drafting is all about catching value. Don't set your mind on just one strategy, be open to change if a player falls, because THAT player could make a huge difference.

What was your draft strategy? Picking 5th, I was expecting to go WR-WR in this one too, but with Adrian Peterson still on the board, I changed my strategy due to the available backs and went RB-RB in the first two rounds, but I still intended on waiting for TE's and QB's. 2. Did it work? Waiting on QB and TE worked. I love Cam Newton in the 6th round, and I think I got a high upside TE late as well in Dwayne Allen. Going Peterson-Doug Martin 1-2 wasn't the plan, but it worked out fine. I'm happy with the Pierre Garcon and Cordarrelle Patterson at WR. 3. Biggest surprise? I was surprised by the fall of Darren Sproles in a PPR format in Chip Kelly's offense. Especially in a best ball league. Understanding he had a rough year and won't be a key guy, a five round drop from last year to this year seems a bit much to me on the surface. 4. In the draft, I regret... Drafting DeSean Jackson. I like him, but I already had Pierre Garcon and I just didn't think it through when I grabbed him straight off my rankings. In hindsight I prefer not to double up WR's on the same team. 5. What was your favorite value pick? Not to pump my own pick, but Doug Martin late in the 2nd round in a PPR 14 team draft I think is pretty good value. TB was a mess last year, and it's hard to believe he won't bounce back now that there is a new coaching staff in place. 6. What did you learn/take away from this draft? (nothing is an ok answer) Like in the standard league, waiting on a QB was confirmed this draft. Kap in the 9th, Romo in the 10th... using a QBBC approach might be the ideal way to go this season with value that late.

I am happy to have landed Jimmy Graham & Peyton Manning in the first two rounds, and I'm quite happy with my WRs. In a 14-teamer though, something always has to suffer, and for me it is my RBs. Although I do believe they can plug holes and get the job done, I don't have any studs and don't have much depth at RB: Joique, Woodhead, FJax, Michael, Hillman. 3. Biggest surprise? I was actually surprised to get Peyton at 2.09 in a 14 teamer. 4. In the draft, I regret... I should have probably grabbed a Peyton backup a bit sooner. Peyton gave me the luxury to wait, but I would have preferred a better QB2 than Bridgewater. 5. What was your favorite value pick? Fred Jackson at 8.09 (14-teams) could turn out to be a steal. He has finished as a top 15 back three of the last 6. What did you learn/take away from this draft? It's tough drafting against 13 4for4 contributors.

What was your draft strategy? Picking 8th my goal was to go WR-RB early and often and try to follow standart procedure after that - like wait on QB and TE and then take guys at the end who are capble of boom weeks. 2. Did it work? I think it worked. I feel like I'm deep at WR and have some pass catching backs along with two, hopefully, usable QBs. 3. Biggest surprise? My biggest surprise is my quality of WRs with Thomas, Hilton, Evans and Stills. All should have their big weeks and get me points. I think there is more quality at WR later in drafts than people are giving credit. 4. In the draft I regretÖ I regret maybe not addressing RB more. Not sure Ellington can hold up and Vereen is my RB2 but will likely be up and down. After that it's a Chris Johnson/Chris Ivory combo. I'm usually a RB guy. 5. What was your favorite value pick? My favorite value picks are a trio of WRs: Evans at 9.8, Dobson at 10.7 and Floyd at 15.8. All I think could have their share of big weeks, which I won't have to predict.

What was your draft strategy? Try to find the players that are going to touch the ball the most, especially the WRs since the NFL is becoming such a passing league. Happy that I ended up with 3 No. 1 WRs in Bryant, Cruz and Decker. 2. Did it work? I really like my PPR team, but my RBs are a bit thin with L. Bell, S. Jackson, J. Stewart and K. Carey (so far). 3. Biggest surprise? Not a lot of surprises with draft selections, but interesting to see how similar the two drafts went - lots of the same players were drafted in similar rounds. Know he is going to miss the first two games, but Ray Rice going in round 5 in both drafts seemed a bit low. 4. In the draft, I regret... 5. What was your favorite value pick? PPR - Decker in the 5th, S. Jackson in the 7th - I think Jackson still has some game left in him if he can stay healthy. 6. What did you learn/take away from this draft? That Josh Moore is almost as famous as Paul Revere.

What was your draft strategy? I tend to have a lot of "show up and see what happens" in my drafts, or perhaps I should instead say I'm very flexible. It's problematic to have a set strategy going in. That said, the 2 WR format guided me to devaluing WRs, and the 14 teams made the values of top RBs increase a lot. You'll often see TE and QB value increase in 14 teamers, so I wanted to be aware of trends on those positions, for sure. 2. Did it work? It did. Through four rounds, I had Ball, Lynch, V Jax & Fitzgerald. That would be an adequate start in a 10 team league. However, I didn't want to continue hitting the WRs heavy, given the format. I was happy to see others not jumping on the QB train early on. It's easy to miss out in a 14 teamer, so I did jump on Cutler earlier than I would in a 12 teamer. Still, I didn't take a QB or TE until round 8, so I was very happy with that. I tend to like a lot of my teams when I can wait on the "onesie" positions. 3. Biggest surprise? Usually leagues larger than 14, tend to pounce on the QBs and TEs. I got Cutler & Kap in the 8th/9th, and Clay in the 10th. Very happy with that. 4. In the draft, I regret... I love how this draft fell for me. I don't really regret anything, save the wisdom that hindsight provides. (I didn't see Hill lasting into the mid-9th, and could've taken a better TE over my last RB in the 7th if I had known ahead of time.) 5. What was your favorite value pick? I'm not his biggest fan this year, but I love that Jordan Matthews fell to me in the late 11th. He goes earlier than that in 12 team leagues. 6. What did you learn/take away from this draft? (nothing is an ok answer) Perhaps, I was lucky, but my strategy coming in proved really great. Hit up early stud RBs. Grab two solid WRs, and then worry about other positions for a while unless a value really falls. Wait on QB/TE. Worked like a dream in this one. Was lucky, maybe.

What was your draft strategy? My strategy is a combination of best player available and wait on a quarterback. 2. Did it work? Kind of. I'm happy with my RBs and my WRs, but I waited too long to take a QB. My Ryan Tannehill and Sam Bradford combination could work out, but it's a big risk considering I don't have a proven guy. 3. Biggest surprise? Nothing too surprising comes to mind. 4. In the draft I regretÖ I regret waiting too long on a QB. I like Tannehill's potential, but I'd rather have someone I trust as my main guy and have Tannehill is a backup with potential. 5. What was your favorite value pick? In a draft with fantasy experts it's difficult to find value. There wasn't really a point in this draft where I felt like 'wow this guy fell to me here.' Players were drafted about where I expected them to be. 6. What did you learn/take away from this draft? One thing I took away from this draft is how different it is drafting with 14 teams compared to 12. I only play in 12-team leagues, so it took some adjusting later in the draft.

What was your draft strategy? Honestly, I was a little intimidated since this was my first draft with the 4for4 contributors. So basically my strategy was to not suck, haha. When I got asked to join this draft it reminded me a lot of this scene from kingpin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Srm21isYMs 2. Did it work? I think it worked, I'm pretty happy with my team except my RB2 in MJD could end up hurting me a bit if he gets hurt or ends up having carries taken away by DMC. 3. Biggest surprise? Biggest surprise for me was not liking my options in the 4th and having to go with Matt Stafford. I've leaned heavily on the draft a QB late theory for the past couple of years, but considering I was last in the 14 team picking, and didn't love my options at WR or RB, QB was a safe pick for me. 4. In the draft, I regret... I probably regret drafting Devonta Freeman where I did at the end of the 8th round. He's got some work to do to climb up the depth chart and probably should've grabbed someone with higher upside and more volume at that pick. 5. What was your favorite value pick? Biggest value pick for me was James Starks at the end of the 15th. He is clearly Lacy's handcuff and if Lacy does go down, which he did last year, he'll be the lead RB in Green Bay. Honestly didn't think he was going to last to me after I picked in the 14th but I was glad to take him there. 6. What did you learn/take away from this draft? Biggest takeaway is that you can't just pick random guys when you have contributors who know their shit. You need to be on top of your game or you could end up at the bottom of the standings from the get go.
