2020 Fantasy Football Mock Draft: When Should You Draft Daniel Jones?

The first mock draft of the year always feels too early. But it’s tradition -- at least for me and some other fantasy football diehards I know -- to start molding our fantasy draft strategies before we even know who wins training camp battles, whose health holds up, whose contract negotiations are successful, whose role is secure, and so on.

Though May might seem too early for all the reasons listed above, it’s especially early considering we don’t even know that the NFL season will start at a normal time. But it’s also for this reason that it’s the perfect time to think about fantasy football.

The unfortunate reality is just that; football in 2020-21 might just be a fantasy. But while we wait for other leagues to (hopefully) get started in the summer, with encouraging reports coming out of the three other Big Four sports, we might as well plan accordingly for our fantasy leagues to start back up on time and with the same intensity as ever. That’s what the NFL is reportedly planning for, as well, seeing as Executive VP of Football Operations Troy Vincent said that “unless the medical community tells us otherwise,” they are aiming to play in full stadiums.

If the NFL is aiming to play in full stadiums, then we should by no means aim to play anything less than a full-fledged fantasy season. And that’s exactly what we’re starting to do here at RADIO.COM Sports. Featuring drafters from our central content team and experts from local markets, our first PPR mock draft of 2020 has come and gone.

Let’s look at the best bargains, the worst reaches and the overall breakdown of our 12-team draft.
