Fantasy React: SI’s 2020 NFL Mock Draft 14.0

Sports Illustrated‘s Kevin Hanson released his latest mock draft on Thursday, which you can find here. Please check that out before continuing below.

Let’s step into a hypothetical world for a moment and imagine that the actual 2020 NFL Draft plays out precisely like Hanson’s mock. What would that mean for fantasy football managers?

Let’s examine the potential fantasy value of some of the top offensive players off the board in Round 1 of SI’s latest mock.

Jerry Jeudy to Jacksonville Jaguars (1.9)

Jeudy being the first wide receiver off the board isn’t a surprise, but seeing him go to Jacksonville at pick No. 9 was. However, WR is a need for the Jaguars, especially if they bring another young QB in to compete with Gardner Minshew (more on that later). D.J. Chark had an amazing fantasy season out of nowhere in 2019, finishing as the WR16 in overall PPR points and as the WR13 on a points-per-game basis. Jeudy has the skillset to make as quick of an impact as a rookie receiver can make, and there isn’t the same competition for targets in Jacksonville as there is Las Vegas, New York, or Philadelphia. Jeudy is a borderline WR3 in 2020 if he lands here.
