NFL Mock Draft - Round 1

I usually try to stick to rankings in fantasy football, but the NFL Draft has a big impact on fantasy, so I thought I'd take a stab at predicting the first round.

As of this writing, it feels like no one really knows if the Cardinals are all-in on Kyler Murray or if they'll go defense and roll with Josh Rosen.  I suspect they'll find someone who will give up a 2nd rounder for Rosen in the next couple of days, and they'll jump all over that.  The Raiders have a ton of picks in the first round, and with a new GM in Mike Mayock, they look to be ready to make some noise.  Would I be surprised if they took Josh Jacobs at #4?  A little.  But they're THE RAIDERS, so you just never know!  I think the Packers might make some first round moves too, and I think they have a good shot to end up with a solid draft.

Let's get right to the list, shall we?  Let me know what you think!

2019 Fantasy Football Rankings v2

Image result for odell beckham brownsI released the first edition of my 2019 rankings back in January before the Super Bowl was even played.  Since then, a ton of guys have moved around in free agency, and now's it's suddenly April.  That means the NFL draft is later this month, so it's time to get another update done ahead of that weekend.  I've put some notes next to players who have switched teams and/or moved up due to free agency transactions.  I've also noted a few guys who I'm high/low on versus the ECR as of this post.

Let's get right into it, shall we?
