Fantasy basketball mock draft – 10-team roto

Written by on October 12, 2021

Our ESPN Fantasy Basketball experts got together for their third mock draft of the 2021-22 NBA season, this time a 10-team roto league.

While this draft took place before the latest Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons news, there are still quite a few takeaways for those playing in roto leagues this season.

For one, waiting until Round 3 to select LaMelo Ball may soon mean you’ve waited too long; Charlotte’s rising star is moving up draft boards fast! Secondly, there are plenty of values to be had in Rounds 4 and 5, including players like Chris Paul, Christian Wood and Tobias Harris.

Note: If you’re new to fantasy hoops and looking to try it out for the first time, here is a tutorial of all the basics. From there, it’s easy to grab a handful of people, set up a draft and have some fun!

Now on to our 10-team roto mock. The participants, in order of draft position, were: Tom Carpenter, André Snellings, Jim McCormick, Sachin Dave Chandan, John Cregan, Kyle Soppe, Joe Kaiser, Eric Moody, Ryan Smith and Eric Karabell.
