Round 2: RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire 

Strategy

The wait between picks is agonizing but having back-to-back selections allow dynasty owners to start new trends and be a leader, now a follower. With my first consecutive picks in my 2020 Dynasty Superflex Mock Draft, I looked to start a trend.

I was hoping that one of my quarterback targets would fall to me at the turn. However, Dak Prescott, Deshaun Watson, and Kyler Murray were selected before my first pick at the Round 2/Round 3 turn.

Analysis

A fantasy stud in the making and a player who has the perfect landing spot in Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Edwards-Helaire is a great receiving back and a beast in open space. His skill set is the perfect match in Andy Reid’s offensive attack and will add a unique element to an already prolific offense.

Edwards-Helaire will share touches with Damien Williams in 2020 with Williams starting as the primary ball carrier, but Edwards-Helaire will take over No.1 duties and finish as the lead dog in the Chiefs backfield. However, by the 2021 season, Edwards-Helaire will be the primary ball carrier and ascend to be one of the top running backs in fantasy football. When Patrick Mahomes tells Andy Reid that he wants the Chiefs to draft Clyde Edwards-Helaire, I was sold on the former LSU Tiger.

Round 3: RB Jonathan Taylor

Strategy

After selecting one rookie stud running back, I debated taking Russell Wilson or George Kittle here, but I couldn’t resist having another elite running back on my dynasty roster. I scanned through the wide receivers, and other than Julio Jones, neither of them screamed elite. I envision my weekly lineup with McCaffrey and Edwards-Helaire as my starting running backs. The opportunity presents itself where I can insert the Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor in one of my flex options makes me warm inside.

Analysis

In a redraft format, the selection here at the top of the third round is a massive reach. Jonathan Taylor will be battling with Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines for touches in a crowded Colts backfield. However, as a dynasty owner, you have to project players and their values this season and beyond. Mack is entering his contract year and has exhibited the inability to stay healthy. Mack has yet to play more than 14 games in a season, and the Colts traded up to the 41st overall pick in the second round to draft All-American running back Jonathan Taylor out of the University of Wisconsin. Simply stated, the Colts do not see Mack as their franchise back.

Jonathan Taylor has the potential to make the Colts seventh-ranked rushing attack even more dynamic. Taylor is a prototypical bell-cow back, which fits in well with Frank Reich’s motto of Run the Damn Ball.

Taylor will be running behind one of the best offensive lines in the league and is the more talented back with his elite size, speed, vision, and ball skills. I project he will be the Colts primary ball carrier by Thanksgiving. Taylor will not earn his draft capital in 2020, but as a dynasty owner, I envision a fantasy stud for multiple seasons.

Round 4: WR Allen Robinson

Strategy

With three stud running backs now on my dynasty roster, I can focus on quarterbacks and wide receivers. I never try to draft just to fill out a position. I select my best player available. As I enter the 4th/5th round turn, I am disappointed to see the next tier of quarterbacks I targeted unavailable. If this were an actual dynasty draft, I would do my best to move up to secure either Josh Allen or Carson Wentz. In this 2020 Dynasty Superflex Mock Draft, however, there are no trades. The quarterbacks that are still available are not very appealing even though I am in a Superflex format. I do not want to reach for a quarterback just to fill the lineup spot. Therefore,  I turn my attention to the wide receiver position.

Analysis

I selected the top wide receiver off the Superflex rankings, which is Chicago Bears wideout, Allen Robinson. Robinson seemingly receives no respect, but he saw a staggering 154 targets last season, which is the third-highest among wide receivers,  behind only Michael Thomas and Julio Jones. Additionally, he finished as fantasy’s WR11 last season, and that’s with Mitchell Trubisky as his quarterback.

Robinson is a low-end WR1 and might see his value steadily rise with Nick Foles as his quarterback in 2020. Foles has familiarity with the new quarterback coach John Defilippo during their tenure with the Eagles, so his grasp of the offense should benefit Foles enough to take over the disappointing and underachieving Mitchell Trubisky.

Robinson should provide a slight uptick over his 2019 numbers of 98 catches on 154 targets, 1,147 yards, and seven touchdowns.

Round 5: W.R. Stefon Diggs 

Strategy

With these back-to-back picks in the 2020 Dynasty Superflex Mock Draft, I am now entirely focused on selecting consecutive wide receivers, and I believe it worked out reasonably well. After taking Allen Robinson, I followed up that pick by taking the Buffalo Bills wideout Stefon Diggs. Diggs was traded to the Buffalo Bills this past offseason after being underappreciated in Minnesota. Diggs has gone over 1,000 yards in each of the last two seasons and finished as the 24th fantasy scorer for wide receivers.

Analysis

Diggs arrives on the Buffalo Bills offense as the undisputed number one wideout on a Bills playoff team. He should exceed his career-high of 149 targets in 2020 and should produce plenty of highlight downfield catches.

There are concerns about Bills quarterback Josh Allen, but I think we will see Allen take another step forward with the upgrades on the Bills offense. Allen will improve on the 58.8% completion of his passes last season., which will provide Diggs the ability to produce low-end WR1 numbers. Allen led a fantasy-friendly offense and made John Brown a top 20 wide receiver last season.

Fantasy owners will shy away from Diggs due to the inaccuracy enigma surrounding Allen, but getting Diggs as my WR2 is the perfect value for a wide receiver who arrives as the go-to wideout on an offense on the rise.
