Here, I look at the best and worst values of each team and give an overall analysis of each team’s chance to win.Team 1Best Pick: TE Zach Ertz PHI 5.1Ertz is Wentz’s top target, and with Alshon Jeffery likely out for the first month, he should see a bevy of targets.Worst Pick: WR John Brown BUF 9.1It’s not that I don’t like Brown, but with Diggs now in town and with Cole Beasley as Josh Allen’s third-down mainstay, I am not sure that Brown will get more than three or four targets per game.Overall Analysis: This team is banking on a Mark Ingram regression. If that happens, he’s got a great chance to make the playoffs.Team 2Best Pick: RB Tarik Cohen CHI 9.2I am not a believer in David Montgomery at all. Cohen was going in Round 6 a year ago. Three rounds later is a very good value in 2020.Worst Pick: RB Mark Ingram BAL 6.11It tells me everything that the very next pick was J.K Dobbins. Ingram will see his production regress at least 15% this season.Overall Analysis: If Brandon Aiyuk and Larry Fitzgerald can provide solid depth, this team can compete. If not, they will have to hit the waiver wire for one more good receiver.Team 3Best Pick: RB D’Andre Swift DET 6.10I was shocked that a talent the likes of Swift was still on the board at this point. He could be special if the Lions don’t regulate his touches.Worst Pick: TE O.J. Howard TB 20.10After drafting Mark Andrews early on, this team fell asleep and did not get a decent backup.Overall Analysis: I will give this team a puncher’s chance to compete only if Andrews produces like last year, and Big Ben stays healthy.Team 4Best Pick: TE George Kittle SF 3.4With Deebo Samuel injured, I could argue that Kittle is worthy of a late second-round pick.Worst Pick: QB Carson Wentz PHI 13.4Strategically this was a bad pick. This team needed another solid RB, so instead of getting Wentz to backup Allen, they could have taken a shot on Antonio Gibson, Darrynton Evans, or another upside RB.Overall Analysis: Huge running back issues will most likely keep this team at the bottom of the standings.Team 5Best Pick: RB Raheem Mostert SF 6.8Once Mostert demanded a trade, he saw his draft stock plummet. Why? He was a beast last season and will get carries no matter where he ends up playing.Worst Pick: RB Derrick Henry TEN 1.5I am the President of the Derrick Henry Fan Club, but there is no way I am passing on Michael Thomas in a PPR format to select Henry, who only had 18 receptions last year.Overall Analysis: This team will need his running back depth to be on point because his receiver depth is severely lacking.Learn more about the Fantasy Football World Championships!

A complete steal in Round 12.Worst Pick: RB Nick Chubb CLE 1.8Many other experts might disagree with me, but I am taking Miles Sanders and Joe Mixon over Chubb every single time.Overall Analysis: This team lacks running back, and receiver depth, which should create huge problems in this COVID filled season.Team 9Best Pick: RB David Johnson HOU 5.9I hate Johnson as much as the next fantasy player, but 20+ touches is a rare find in Round 5.Worst Pick: TE Jared Cook NO 10.4I am nitpicking here, but I think this team will regret not taking Hayden Hurst instead of an overrated Cook.Overall Analysis: This team has a few questions at running back, but if they work out, he could be a tough out in the playoffs.Team 10Best Pick: RB Miles Sanders PHI 1.10Why is this fantasy player a Hall of Famer? It’s because he is willing to take the guy going to break out right before you do. Sanders could be that player in 2020.Worst Pick: TE Noah Fant DEN 12.3This team was still able to snag Irv Smith in Round 19, which makes me wonder why they didn’t take another receiver here. That could have given them more overall depth.Overall Analysis: If Kyler Murray plays to his potential, this team might be popping champagne bottles come December.Team 11Best Pick: QB Patrick Mahomes KC 4.2It’s always a game of chicken with high stakes players and quarterbacks. Getting Mahomes here was perfect timing and could help lead this team to glory.Worst Pick: WR Michael Gallup DAL 5.11Passing up DeVante Parker, who is a WR1 to take Gallup who might be the Cowboys’ WR3, could prove fatal.Overall Analysis: If this team gets a RB2 to emerge, he could end up winning the league.Team 12Best Pick: WR Jalen Reagor PHI 12.1Getting a player who can realistically catch 60-65 passes in Round 12 is a great value.Worst Pick: WR A.J. Green CIN 6.1Green didn’t look to be a bad pick at the time, but then taking Deebo Samuel in the next round gives this team a bit too many injury risks for me at WR.Overall Analysis: Too many yellow stickers (WRs) and too few green stickers (RBs) for my liking.Want to prepare for your upcoming draft?
