Here's our Aug. 30 fantasy football mock draft (12 teams, standard.) I selected ninth, while Jacob chose second.



Here's the full fantasy football mock draft:



Best Picks Rounds 1-2: I'd say CeeDee Lamb had the best value of all the picks in the first two rounds. It's tough to have a "best" pick with so many great players coming off the board.

Worst Picks Rounds 1-2: I can't get behind Mark Andrews in the second round, given the lack of depth at running back. That said, Dylan was an auto-draft, so that's the last time I'll reference his team.

Best Picks Rounds 3-4: I would have drafted Tee Higgins had I not picked Joe Mixon in the first round. I also would have considered A.J. Brown.

Worst Picks Rounds 3-4: I hate David Montgomery this year. He's a mediocre plodder behind the worst offensive line in the NFL.

Best Picks Rounds 5-6: I would have drafted Kareem Hunt if I didn't already have three running backs by 5.09.

Worst Picks Rounds 5-6: Breece Hall is not the Jets' starter right now. It's also odd that Kenneth Walker went just two picks after Rashaad Penny, especially considering that he's hurt.

Best Picks Rounds 7-8: I was really hoping Christian Kirk would fall back to me at 8.04. I would have picked him at 7.09, but I wanted to lock in a quality quarterback.

Worst Picks Rounds 7-8: It's way too early for Dawson Knox. I obtained him in the 13th round of my real draft!

Best Picks Rounds 9-10: George Pickens and Isiah Pacheco have immense upside, so I like these picks as the sleeper selections begin.

Worst Picks Rounds 9-10: Nyheim Hines seems like an odd pick, given that this is not a PPR, or even a half-PPR league.

Best Picks Rounds 11-12: Kadarius Toney has huge upside. I was hoping to get him in the 12th round.

Worst Picks Rounds 11-12: Don't take defenses this early! Also, Marlon Mack was released.

Best Picks Rounds 13-15: You want to swing for the fences in the final rounds. DeVante Parker, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Van Jefferson have great potential.

Worst Picks Rounds 13-15: Draft players with upside in the final rounds. J.D. McKissic, Darrel Williams and Jarvis have no upside. Also, I assume Hambone was trolling with the C.J. Ham and Mike Boone picks.



Here's our Aug. 23 fantasy football mock draft (12 teams, half-PPR.) I selected 11th, while Jacob chose fourth.



Here's the full fantasy football mock draft:



Best Picks Rounds 1-2: There was some great value toward the end of the second round with Javonte Williams and Ceedee Lamb. If I went receiver in Round 2, I would have considered Lamb.

Worst Picks Rounds 1-2: I wouldn't take a quarterback in the first two rounds, given the depth issues at the other positions.

Best Picks Rounds 3-4: I was hoping for one of the talented receivers chosen in the third round like Mike Evans, A.J. Brown, Tee Higgins or Michael Pittman Jr.

Worst Picks Rounds 3-4: I hate David Montgomery this year. He's a mediocre plodder behind the worst offensive line in the NFL. Josh Jacobs is underwhelming as well.

Best Picks Rounds 5-6: If Michael Thomas produces like a first- or second-round pick, Jacob will have a great chance to win the league. I'm a big fan of the Jerry Jeudy, Gabriel Davis and Allen Robinson selections as well.

Worst Picks Rounds 5-6: Taking Clyde Edwards-Helaire before a second receiver is a huge mistake. I'm also not a fan of the Chris Godwin pick because he's coming off a torn ACL.

Best Picks Rounds 7-8: I like the tight end value in these two rounds; not just with Dalton Schultz, but with T.J. Hockenson and Dallas Goedert, too.

Worst Picks Rounds 7-8: Team 12 took his second quarterback before his second receiver. Ouch. Also, Robert Woods is coming off a torn ACL, so I'm not a fan of that pick.

Best Picks Rounds 9-10: Kadarius Toney has huge upside, as do George Pickens and some of the other receivers, but Toney could end up being the best pick in these two rounds.

Worst Picks Rounds 9-10: This isn't full PPR, so I wouldn't draft Nyheim Hines in the ninth round. Also, Troubleshooting shouldn't draft quarterbacks in both the seventh and 10th rounds.

Best Picks Rounds 11-12: Of all the picks in these two rounds, it seems as though Rachaad White, Treylon Burks and Marquez Valdes-Scantling have the greatest upside.

Worst Picks Rounds 11-12: Don't take defenses this early!

Best Picks Rounds 13-15: You want to swing for the fences in the final rounds. Zamir White has the most upside, but don't sleep on Deleted Deleted.

Worst Picks Rounds 13-15: Draft players with upside in the final rounds. Darrel Williams, Marlon Mack and Jarvis Landry have no upside.



Here's our Aug. 16 fantasy football mock draft (12 teams, 2-QB.) I selected third, while Jacob chose 12th.



Here's the full fantasy football mock draft:



Best Picks Rounds 1-2: I loved Jacob's picks. I would have considered Joe Burrow around picks 5-6, and I love pairing him with Ja'Marr Chase. The running back picks in Round 2 were excellent as well.

Worst Picks Rounds 1-2: Nothing stands out as a bad pick. Great job, everyone!

Best Picks Rounds 3-4: I really wanted Russell Wilson at 3.03. D'Andre Swift and Saquon Barkley were great value selections. I was also hoping for Javonte Williams or Ezekiel Elliott at 4.10.

Worst Picks Rounds 3-4: Mark Andrews really hurt Nick's running back depth. And speaking of running backs, James Conner is due for some major touchdown regression.

Best Picks Rounds 5-6: I love the receiver value in these rounds, namely Tee Higgins, Mike Williams, Courtland Sutton and D.J. Moore.

Worst Picks Rounds 5-6: If you look at the overall rosters of the teams that selected tight ends in these two rounds, they have some major depth issues at a position. I don't think you can go tight end early in 2-QB leagues unless you're getting insane value.

Best Picks Rounds 7-8: I was hoping Rhamondre Stevenson would come back to me. He's likely to have a huge season. I was also hoping for Jerry Jeudy at 9.03.

Worst Picks Rounds 7-8: Antonio Gibson is in danger of losing his job to Brian Robinson because of his fumbling issues.

Best Picks Rounds 9-10: There were some nice sleepers chosen in Round 10, primarily Dameon Pierce and Skyy Moore. Romeo Doubs would belong in that category as well if someone else chose him.

Worst Picks Rounds 9-10: I don't hate anything here either. If pressed, I'd say Allen Lazard is the worst pick because he can't separate, but it's not a terrible selection.

Best Picks Rounds 11-12: Of all the picks in these two rounds, it seems as though Kadarius Toney and George Pickens have the greatest upside.

Worst Picks Rounds 11-12: Don't take defenses this early!

Best Picks Rounds 13-15: Treylon Burks is having a dreadful training camp and preseason, but he's definitely worth a shot in the 15th round. Also, Deleted Deleted seems like he could have a huge season!

Worst Picks Rounds 13-15: Draft players with upside in the final rounds. J.D. McKissic has no upside.



Here's our Aug. 10 fantasy football mock draft (12 teams, PPR.) I selected fourth, while Jacob chose 10th.



Here's the full fantasy football mock draft:



Best Picks Rounds 1-2: Nothing incredibly surprising, but I was hoping CeeDee Lamb, Stefon Diggs and Aaron Jones would fall to me.

Worst Picks Rounds 1-2: Alvin Kamara is a huge risk at 2.01 because he may be suspended for six games.

Best Picks Rounds 3-4: I wanted Mike Williams and Courtland Sutton in the fourth round, but they were sniped off the board before my selection.

Worst Picks Rounds 3-4: I can't get behind Mark Andrews this early. The quarterbacks were also chosen too early in the PPR format because they don't get the reception bonus like all the other positions.

Best Picks Rounds 5-6: Jerry Jeudy, DeAndre Hopkins and Marquise Brown were players I was hoping for at 6.09.

Worst Picks Rounds 5-6: David Montgomery offers no upside and a low floor because he may split the touches behind a horrible offensive line. And again, I can't get behind a quarterback pick in the fifth round unless it's Josh Allen.

Best Picks Rounds 7-8: I almost never list myself under the best picks section, but I can't believe Patrick Mahomes fell to me in the seventh round. That'll never happen in a real league, but if it does, don't hesitate to pull the trigger.

Worst Picks Rounds 7-8: Josh Jacobs was on the field for a reason during the Hall of Fame Game. The Raiders don't value him highly, so you shouldn't either.

Best Picks Rounds 9-10: I like the sleepers chosen in this range. Romeo Doubs may go later in a league with some dumb drafters, but he should probably be chosen in the middle rounds. Kadarius Toney also offers tons of upside in the middle of the ninth round.

Worst Picks Rounds 9-10: What's Tyler Lockett going to do without Russell Wilson? This may seem like a good deal, but I think that's only because price memory is involved.

Best Picks Rounds 11-12: Jalen Tolbert has huge upside as someone who could take some of the targets vacated by departed/injured Dallas players.

Worst Picks Rounds 11-12: Don't take defenses this early!

Best Picks Rounds 13-15: Jameson Williams could be a big-time producer in the second half of the season.

Worst Picks Rounds 13-15: Draft players with upside in the final rounds. Randall Cobb has no upside.



Here's our Aug. 2 fantasy football mock draft (12 teams, standard.) I selected ninth, while Jacob chose third. Jacob went with three receivers and a running back with his first four picks, while I did the opposite.



Here's the full fantasy football mock draft:



Best Picks Rounds 1-2: I loved the value with Ceedee Lamb and Stefon Diggs at the end of the second frame. I was also hoping for Aaron Jones to fall to me.

Worst Picks Rounds 1-2: I will not include the computer selections in this analysis. With that in mind, I can't get behind Alvin Kamara right now because he may be facing a six-game suspension.

Best Picks Rounds 3-4: I'm smitten with Michael Pittman this season, so I would've broken up my 3RB/1WR strategy had he fallen to me.

Worst Picks Rounds 3-4: James Conner is in for some major touchdown regression this season, so I can't get behind taking him in the third round. Josh Jacobs is even worse. I also don't get taking Keenan Allen over Mike Williams. I wouldn't have taken any quarterbacks here either.

Best Picks Rounds 5-6: It's unreal that Mike Williams fell to the middle of the fifth frame. I would have taken him in a heartbeat if he dropped to me at 5.08. I should say that I considered Amon-Ra St. Brown when I chose Courtland Sutton.

Worst Picks Rounds 5-6: Sorry, Jacob, but I really don't like Damien Harris this year! I feel like Rhamondre Stevenson is going to lead the backfield in touches, and Harris is due for some major touchdown regression.

Best Picks Rounds 7-8: Tony Pollard and Gabriel Davis seem like the type of players who could win people championships as seventh-round selections this year. Also, I'm not a fan of picking tight ends early, but Dalton Schultz provides incredible value in the eighth round.

Worst Picks Rounds 7-8: Clyde Edwards-Helaire has some upside, but he may not lead the Chiefs' running backs in touches this year, so I have no interest in him.

Best Picks Rounds 9-10: Raheem Mostert can't stay healthy, but if that changes, he's a steal in the ninth frame. I was going to consider James Cook at 10.04. Also, Dallas Goedert was another tight end pick I liked.

Worst Picks Rounds 9-10: What's Tyler Lockett going to do without Russell Wilson? This may seem like a good deal, but I think that's only because price memory is involved.

Best Picks Rounds 11-12: Dameon Pierce could end up starting in the second half of the year. And if it wasn't for Treylon Burks' breathing issues, he might be going two rounds earlier than this.

Worst Picks Rounds 11-12: Don't take defenses this early!

Best Picks Rounds 13-15: Christian Watson has great potential, though I would have preferred Romeo Doubs.

Worst Picks Rounds 13-15: Tim Patrick tore his ACL, but Team 1 just didn't hear the news. Also, what's with the triple tight end at the end?
