2020 FGT Fantasy Football Mock Draft – Rounds 5 & 6
By the Football Garbage Time Staff
Last time, we provided you our Round 1 & 2 picks and analysis and our Round 3 & 4 picks and analysis in the 6th Annual Football Garbage Time Fantasy Football Twitter Mock Draft, and we’re BACK with Round 5 & 6 picks and analysis! Why? Because we love our readers and, although it’s unclear when the football season will start, everything is still on track for September, including FANTASY FOOTBALL!
As a reminder, we conducted a live Mock Fantasy Football Draft on Twitter (just check out #FGTMockDraft) for a mock PPR standard scoring Yahoo 10-team league (1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE, 1 K & 1 DEF) so that all of you can get some insight as to who we like for the upcoming 2020 season, and hopefully help all of you with your drafts.
This year, ten different writers & podcasters from six different sites participated, including:
- Kris Hopper (@HobbyWally) from Beer Fueled Fantasy Football Podcast,
- Dan Thury (@ThuryBFF) from the Beer Fueled Fantasy Football Podcast,
- Wole Akinso (@UrbanSportScene) from the Urban Sports Scene Podcast,
- Victor Rogers (@iHeartPhoChay) fantasy football expert,
- Andrew Erickson (@AndrewErickson_) from Gridiron Experts,
- Adam Aniba (@TheBandGreport) from The Burgundy and Gold Report and
- Ryan (@RyanWhitfieldNE), Scott (@NFLFantasy_More), Joanne (@kongfu4u), and FXP Jr. from right here on Football Garbage Time!
Each one is taking part in a mock draft live on Twitter (feel free to check out the back and forth on Twitter by searching for #FGTMockDraft).
Below are the results of Rounds 5 and 6 along with some comments from those who made the picks. We also include the Average Draft Position (ADP) as of June 29th as per Fantasy Pros so you can see how we differ from how they’re currently being drafted in PPR leagues.
You can see the complete six round draft results HERE.
Don’t agree? Well, it’s a free country, so sound off in the comments!
– Ha Kung Wong, Editor-In-Chief
1st Round – Pick 1 – Christian McCaffrey (RB) [Current ADP: 1.0]
2nd Round – Pick 20 – Chris Godwin (WR) [Current ADP: 16.5]
3rd Round – Pick 21 – George Kittle (TE) [Current ADP: 23.5]
4th Round – Pick 40 – A.J. Brown (WR) [Current ADP: 45.3]
5th Round – Pick 41 – Devin Singletary (RB) [Current ADP: 50.0]
6th Round – Pick 60 – Russell Wilson (QB) [Current ADP: 59.0]
This is what Joanne had to say about her picks:
Devin Singletary was a key component of the Buffalo Bills offense in 2019. In his rookie year, Singletary had 775 rush yards, 2 rushing TDs, 194 passing yards and 2 receiving TDs. In his second year, Singletary is expected to be more involved in the passing game, so surpassing his rookie season yard total wouldn’t be surprising. With 3rd round 2020 draft pick Zack Moss nipping at his heels, expect Singletary to have extra incentive to get the ball down the field, but with Moss compared to Marshawn Lynch, he could be a complementary part of the Bills backfield that helps keep Singletary fresh throughout the season. Keep in mind though that with goal line competition as well as Josh Allan’s propensity scramble towards the end zone, don’t expect Singletary to produce double digit scores. Regardless, Singletary is a solid RB2 pick.
Devin Singletary AFC East ranks among RBs:

As everyone knows, Quarterbacks can make or break your team. Being a New York Giants fan, I’m way too familiar with the pain of a quarterback making or breaking my team in reality and fantasy. So after the top 3 were off the board, and approaching the end of the 6th round, it was time to secure a quarterback. That quarterback was definitely not Dak Prescott, even though he had 4,902 passing yards and 30 TDs. It definitely wasn’t Tom Brady either. Even though he’s no longer with the New England Patriots, my distaste for Brady runs deep. Brady is turning 43 in August, and there’s a reason the Patriots decided to part ways. He’s no longer the dominant force he once was. His arm is weaker, his aim is off and he’s a step slower.
So, Russell Wilson it is. In 2019, although Wilson had a roller coaster season, he had 4,110 passing yards and 31 TDs. It often took him half a game to connect with his receivers requiring several come-from-behind wins. Wilson is still a top 5 quarterback and should continue being a strong option in the upcoming season with receivers Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf, Greg Olsen and, not to mention, running back Chris Carson, who had 266 receiving yards and 2 receiving TDs last year.

6th Round – Pick 59 – Zach Ertz (TE) [Current ADP: 43.5]
This is what Scott had to say about his picks:
I expect OBJ and the Browns to have a rebound year. The NFL humbled Baker Mayfield last year, so he should be ready to play this year.
“Mr. Julie Ertz” will have another solid year at the top end of the TE rankings. Nothing flashy, just production.

6th Round – Pick 57 – D.J. Chark (WR) [Current ADP: 56.8]
This is what Andrew had to say about his picks:
Calvin Ridley received just one more target than his rookie year and still improved his receiving yards (866), yards per target (9.3, 18th overall), and yards per reception (13.7). He is an ascending player in a great offense.
The stache is on FIRE 🔥
DIME to DJ Chark to go up 14-0!#TENvsJAX

1st Round – Pick 5 – Michael Thomas (WR) [Current ADP: 3.8]
2nd Round – Pick 16 – Travis Kelce (TE) [Current ADP: 18.3]
3rd Round – Pick 25 – Amari Cooper (WR) [Current ADP: 33.5]
4th Round – Pick 36 – James Conner (RB) [Current ADP: 44.0]
5th Round – Pick 45 – Mark Ingram (RB) [Current ADP: 56.3]
6th Round – Pick 56 – DeVante Parker (WR) [Current ADP: 58.3]
This is what Ryan had to say about her picks:
J.K. Dobbins may scare some people away from Mark Ingram but don’t count me among them. Ingram has rushed for 1,000 yards in three of the last four seasons, has not put up worse than 4.7 YPC in that stretch, and is on a team who led the league in rush attempts in 2019 by more than a hundred. Dobbins may be the long term future in Baltimore, but this is a guy who thrived alongside Alvin Kamara in a pass-happy Saints offense. Getting Ingram in Round 5 to pair with James Conner is exactly the type of combo I look to pull when going 0 RB.
While I love a good 0 RB strategy, my overall strategy is really best available, especially at this point in the draft. Parker still sitting here had me giddy. Long story short, I loved him coming out of Louisville, but he had obviously disappointed early in his pro career. That said, we saw a massive jump in his fifth season. Parker saw 128 targets and turned that into 72 receptions, for 1,202 yards, and nine touchdowns. All draft season long, there was a lot of debate about how good Tua Tagovailoa can be at the next level, but he’s easily the most promising QB of Parker’s career. I’m a bit concerned about what he will look like coming off of a contract extension, but with Tua and Preston Williams, dare I say the Dolphins offense seems to be trending up.
1st Round – Pick 6 – Alvin Kamara (RB) [Current ADP: 5.5]
2nd Round – Pick 15 – Kenyan Drake (RB) [Current ADP: 15.5]
3rd Round – Pick 26 – Brandin Cooks (WR) [Current ADP: 87.3]
4th Round – Pick 35 – Austin Ekeler (RB) [Current ADP: 16.3]
5th Round – Pick 46 – Cooper Kupp (WR) [Current ADP: 37.8]
6th Round – Pick 55 – Chris Carson (RB) [Current ADP: 35.0]

1st Round – Pick 9 – Josh Jacobs (RB) [Current ADP: 16.8]
2nd Round – Pick 12 – Nick Chubb (RB) [Current ADP: 16.5]
3rd Round – Pick 29 – Jonathan Taylor (RB) [Current ADP: 51.5]
4th Round – Pick 32 – JuJu Smith-Schuster (RB) [Current ADP: 34.8]
5th Round – Pick 49 – DK Metcalf (WR) [Current ADP: 55.3]
6th Round – Pick 52 – Keenan Allen (WR) [Current ADP: 48.0]
This is what Victor had to say about his picks:
I wanted to round out my foundation with solid floor/ceiling WR’s Keenan Allen because he is a PPR animal and DraftKings Metcalf because he is attached to Richmond, VA’s own Rus “I can’t bust” Wilson. I love Allen’s floor next DK’s ceiling paired with JuJu with Big Ben back should allow for me to put up decent production. Having both trios WR’s and RB’s picking from the turn now will allow me to take more aggressive picks as the draft continues. Depending on the format, I like go build out my teams like this from the turn.
1st Round – Pick 10 – Tyreek Hill (WR) [Current ADP: 12.5]
2nd Round – Pick 11 – DeAndre Hopkins (WR) [Current ADP: 9.8]
3rd Round – Pick 30 – Melvin Gordon (RB) [Current ADP: 33.8]
4th Round – Pick 31 – Courtland Sutton (WR) [Current ADP: 45.5]
5th Round – Pick 50 – Terry McLaurin (WR) [Current ADP: 60.5]
6th Round – Pick 51 – Antonio Gibson (RB/WR) [Current ADP: 160.0]
This is what Adam had to say about his picks:
Antonio Gibson could be the sleeper of the 2020 draft. Drafted as a RB, but was a hyrbrid WR/RB at Memphis. Although the Redskins offense and Dwayne Haskins are a work in progress, Gibson could be big time playmaker in the run & receiving game. Gibson is a big play waiting to happen.
Second year receiver Terry McLaurin nearly eclipsed 1k yards receiving in ‘19, despite only playing in 14 games behind one of the leagues worst offenses. With a rejuvenated and visibly slimmer Dwayne Haskins, look for McLaurin to be a Top 10 target in 2020.
