Fantasy Football: 2021 Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft, Including Defensive Players (IDP) | Sports blanket


I recently finished drafting rookies in my Fantasy Football dynasty league. You can use it as a simulation if you have a rookie draft. There aren’t many teases this early that are so specific.

The owners of this league are sharp and they are located all over the country (no homer selection). This list usually unearths a few sleepers throughout the fantasy season. Use this as a guide as the Fantasy Football Draft is only a few weeks away.

I traded my first and second round picks for this draft during the regular season last year in order to acquire players who could help me in 2020. In my humble opinion, I was still able to find fantastic solid prospects. Accept? To disagree? You mean to tell me which choices I really messed up? Let me know on Twitter at @mwcoyote.

Note: This league does not award points per capture (PPR).

Round 1

1. Kyle Pitts, ATL TE

2. Najee Harris, PIT RB

3. Ja’Marr Chase, CIN WR

4. Javonte Williams, DEN RB

5. Travis Étienne, JAC RB

6. DeVonta Smith, PHI WR

7. Jaylen Waddle, MIA WR

8. Trey’s Sermon, OFS RB

9. Trevor Lawrence, JAC QB

10. Micah Parsons, DAL LB

11. Trey Lance, SFO QB

12. Marshall Terrace, CAR WR

Thoughts: It’s surprising that two quarterbacks went in the first round and only one defensive player was selected. … Two 49ers in the top 12 picks show the writing community is high on what John Lynch is doing in San Francisco.

2nd round

1. Jamin Davis, WAS LB

2. Zaven Collins, ARI LB

3. Jérémie Owusu-Koramoah, CLE LB

4. Rashod Bateman, BAL WR

5. Michael Carter, NYJ RB

6. Justin Fields, CHI QB

7. Elijah Moore, NYJ WR

8. Amon-Ra St. Brown, DET WR

9. Zach Wilson, NYJ QB

10. Nick Bolton, KCC LB

11. Mac Jones, QB NEP

12. Rondale Moore, ARI WR

Thoughts: Three offensive players from the Jets mark this round. Maybe things are finally about to change in the Big Apple.

Round 3

1. Kadarius Toney, NYG WR

2. Rhamondre Stevenson, NEP RB

3. Amari Rodgers, GBP WR

4. Baron Browning, DEN LB

5. Ernest Jones, LAR LB

6. Chuba Hubbard, CAR RB

7. Jaelan Phillips, MIA DE

8. Pete Werner, NOS LB

9. Kwity Paye, IND DE

10. Nico Collins, HOU WR

11. (my pick) Derrick Barnes, DET LB

12. Dyami Brown, WAS WR

Thoughts: I was hoping Browning would run into me. I need LB on my roster and from George Stoia’s reports it’s clear the Broncos have a great athlete who will have a chance to succeed. The Lions traded to get Barnes and he could play early in the season.

Round 4

1. Pat Freiermuth, PIT TE

2. Trevon Moehrig, LVR S

3. D’Wayne Eskridge, SEA WR

4. (my choice) Garret Wallow, HOU LB

5. Jevon Holland, MIA S

6. Azeez Ojulari, NYG LB

7. Richie Grant, ATL S

8. (my choice) Tutu Atwell, LAR WR

9. (my pick) Javian Hawkins, ATL RB

10. Grégory Rousseau, BUF DE

11. Josh Palmer, BAC WR

12. (my pick) Kenneth Gainwell, PHI RB

Thoughts: As you can see, I always caught a linebacker, but I was focusing on the offense. Every time a team trades twice to acquire a player, it gets me noticed and that’s why I chose Wallow. Atwell isn’t the biggest player, but he could make the biggest plays because of his blazing speed. I was stunned when Hawkins didn’t make the draft, but he couldn’t have landed in a better place. Some might think this pick is a reach, but James Robinson of the Jaguars reminded me last year to value opportunities more than draft status. At Gainwell, I grabbed another speedster. He’s another player who dropped out of the draft but could help fantasy teams in the years to come.

Round 5

1. Elijah Mitchell, OFS RB

2. Joe Tryon, TBB LB

3. Kylen Granson, IND TE

4. André Cisco, JAC S

5. Jabril Cox, DAL LB

6. Chazz Surratt, MIN LB

7. Jayson Oweh, BAL LB

8. (my pick) Monty Rice, TEN LB

9. Kellen Mond, MIN QB

10. Brevin Jordan, HOU TE

11. Jermar Jefferson, DET RB

12. (my choice) Jamien Sherwood, NYJ LB

Thoughts: I don’t expect Rice to play with the Titans this season. In a year, I will have to assess his progress. Sherwood played it safe in college and I was hoping the eligibility would continue into his rookie season. He’s another player I don’t expect instant dividends from my fantasy team.
