community news, Fantasy React: SIs 2020 NFL Mock Draft 16.0

Sports Illustrated‘s Kevin Hanson released his latest seven-round 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 the top running backs off the board in the second round of SI’s latest mock.

Jonathan Taylor to Los Angeles Chargers (No. 37 overall)

Hanson has frequently mocked Taylor as his first running back off the board, and it’s easy to see why. He’s a true workhorse back who can easily step into a timeshare role alongside Austin Ekeler with Melvin Gordon in Denver. Ekeler was a fantasy superstar last season, and many are hoping to see him in a feature role for 16 games in 2020. However, the Chargers may prefer to have some insurance beyond Justin Jackson.

Los Angeles is a great immediate fit for Taylor. He won’t be asked to catch the ball a ton, nor will he be asked to carry the ball 20-plus times per game out of the gate—there are some concerns with Taylor’s break-down potential after getting more than 300 touches in each of his three years at Wisconsin. Still, he’ll get plenty of work, and both Ekeler and Gordon were fantasy relevant in this offense last season. Look at Taylor as a second flex or high-end bench option. Ekeler would fall to mid-RB2 territory.
