Fantasy Football Mock Draft: Jonathan Taylor, Austin Ekeler Go 1 2 In Our First PPR Mock For 2022

We held our first 12-team, PPR mock draft for the 2022 season this week, and it felt like a trip down memory lane. It was fun drafting guys who missed most of the 2021 campaign with the hope of what they can be next season, including Cam Akers, J.K. Dobbins and Travis Etienne, among others.

We didn't include incoming rookies in this draft. This exercise is done mostly to react to what happened in 2021 and how it could impact next season. And the results are interesting and worth digesting.

In Round 1, Jonathan Taylor is the expected No. 1 overall selection, which happened here. But No. 2 overall is up for debate, with the likely candidates being Austin Ekeler, Derrick Henry and Christian McCaffrey. I took Ekeler second, and I'm counting on him to build off what he did in 2021 and continue to show he's among the best running backs in the NFL, especially as a receiver out of the backfield.

Henry and McCaffrey went after Ekeler, and then the first receiver went at No. 5 in Davante Adams. Another fun debate in 2022 will be Adams vs. Cooper Kupp, and I like Adams better if he stays in Green Bay with Aaron Rodgers. Adams, Kupp (No. 7 overall) and Justin Jefferson (No. 12) were the only receivers drafted in Round 1.
