At NBC Sports EDGE, our goal is to give you the tools to guide you towards winning a fantasy football championship. As such, we'll be providing you with a few looks into a variety of the tools available in our 2021 NFL Draft Guide from the NBC Sports EDGE+ Premium package as we march closer and closer to the start of the regular season.

Complete with content aimed at providing the knowledge you need to make the perfect draft decisions in a variety of league formats — from projections, tiers, rankings, league sync, sleepers and busts to exclusive expert columns — this year's edition is the finest we've ever produced.

We showed off our first expert mock draft, sleepers, overall half-PPR rankings and some overvalued players. Today we're going to take a look at a full PPR mock draft conducted and analyzed by NBC Sports EDGE writer Kyle Dvorchak.

Check it out:

PPR MOCK DRAFT

(1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 2 FLEX)

ROUND 1

1.01 -- Christian McCaffrey, RB1

1.02 -- Dalvin Cook, RB2

1.03 -- Alvin Kamara, RB3

1.04 -- Saquon Barkley, RB4

1.05 -- Travis Kelce, TE1

1.06 -- Tyreek Hill, WR1

1.07 -- Derrick Henry, RB5

1.08 -- Ezekiel Elliott, RB6

1.09 -- Davante Adams, WR2

1.10 -- Austin Ekeler, RB7

1.11 -- Nick Chubb, RB8

1.12 -- Jonathan Taylor, RB9

Notes: The first round didn’t feature any surprises. It tilted toward running backs with the honor of first non-RB drafted going to a tight end. While Kelce is a god among men at his position, this is a steep price for a tight end, especially in a managed league that allows teams to farm the waiver wire for production. Davante Adams just had his role as the top option for the reigning MVP secured and it's reasonable to expect getting him in the final third of the first round may be a thing of the past by August.

ROUND 5

5.01 -- Mark Andrews, TE5

5.02 -- Josh Allen, QB3

5.03 -- D.J. Moore, WR21

5.04 -- Chris Godwin, WR22

5.05 -- Kareem Hunt, RB23

5.06 -- Ja'Marr Chase, WR23

5.07 -- Kenny Golladay, WR24

5.08 -- Michael Thomas, WR25

5.09 -- Chase Edmonds, RB24

5.10 -- Courtland Sutton, WR26

5.11 -- Odell Beckham, WR27

5.12 -- Aaron Rodgers, QB4

Notes: Not everyone can get the 1.01 — in fact, only a single person can per league — but if you have the good fortune of starting your draft off with Christian McCaffery, Ray has laid out the blueprint for your next five rounds. With the best fantasy back of all time already locked up, he pivoted to hammering opponents at receiver, FLEX, and tight end in the ensuing rounds. McCaffrey affords teams the luxury of beating their opponents at running back on the whole, even if they botch their RB2 spot horrifically. He's just that good. The strategy of taking an elite runner and then waiting forever works for most backs taken in the first round but there is something truly breathtaking about it when done with CMC.
