2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2

Draft took place July 2nd 2013

Scoring System: PPR, 12 team
Using FFWC Rules

Ovr Pick Franchise Selection Pos. Team Age Exp.
51 5.03 Gridiron Experts Jason Witten TE DAL 32 9
What was I saying about me avoiding tight ends? Never mind that. We're conservatively projecting Witten at around a 90-1100-5 clip, making him roughly the same value of a top 20 wide receiver in a PPR format. When ScoutPro selfishly stole Pierre Garcon right in front of me, I went ahead and nabbed my TE4 to play in a flex spot.
52 5.04 Zach Law on Sports Tony Gonzalez TE --- 39 15
53 5.05 Fantasy Sharks Montee Ball RB DEN 24 -1
54 5.06 World Ranked Player #26 Peyton Manning QB DEN 39 14
I do not usually take QB's early but wanted to try it here and I think Manning is poised for a big year with his 3 big weapons. He has 40 tds and 5000 potential this year. In the 5th I think its worth a shot.
55 5.07 The Huddle Antonio Brown WR PIT 26 2
Jason Witten was all queued up here, only to see him go off the board four picks ahead of me. The backup plan was taking the last of the top-tier quarterbacks, but Peyton Manning was picked just before me. So Brown is a bit of a consolation prize, though in a three-WR league having three of the top 16 WRs takes away a bit of the sting.
56 5.08 Draft TV Torrey Smith WR SF 26 1
I don't play the upside game with Torrey often, but with Dez and Roddy, I think I can swing for the fences. With Boldin gone, it is Torrey's time to shine. His inconsistency is troubling but could be a 3rd year WR wonder
57 5.09 KFFL Rashard Mendenhall RB --- 27 4
58 5.10 Fantasy Football QB Cecil Shorts WR HOU 27 1
So many good players taken in the 5th! I could have reached in the 4th, but my need at RB prevented that from happening. I took a long reach for Shorts III. Perhaps too long... I'd actually prefer Shorts's situation if Blackmon wasn't suspended as I don't like the idea of him facing double-coverage. Still, in terms of consistency last year, he ranked in between Welker and Andre Johnson... yeah, not bad.
59 5.11 BFD Fantasy Steve Smith WR BAL 35 11
I've got an aged group of WRs and that's a risky proposition for sure. Smith has plenty of mileage but also has no competition for the WR looks on this team. Steve will catch passes, the end zone continues to elude him.
60 5.12 KFFSC Vernon Davis TE SF 31 6
Vernon Davis is a great value here. It's obvious he has the ability to be a top 3 TE, but will he receive the touches? At the end of the 5th round it's a great value pick.
61 6.01 KFFSC Mike Wallace WR MIN 28 3
This should be interesting. The Miami offense is coming together nicely and Tannehill will welcome the deep threat Wallace brings. I think Tannehill leans on Wallace and his speed. Wallace may not get a ton of receptions, but my first two WR picks will and that makes Wallace a great WR3 for me with a lot of big game potential.
62 6.02 BFD Fantasy Dennis Pitta TE BAL 29 2
The #1 look for the Ravens on every pass play. In a PPR league he's going to finally break out and score TDs along with creating receptions.
63 6.03 Fantasy Football QB Tavon Austin WR STL 24 -1
Risky, risky, but the rewards could be just high enough if they just force feed him the ball anyway they can.
64 6.04 KFFL Matt Ryan QB ATL 29 4
65 6.05 Draft TV Chris Ivory RB NYJ 27 2
Chris Ivory is my ideal RB3. Instant starter, big time upside, and in line for a lot of carries. I will protect him in case of injury, but what other 6th round RB could get 275+ carries?
66 6.06 The Huddle Tom Brady QB NE 37 12
There are definite concerns about Brady this season, but the last time his receiving corps was gutted he still managed to finish as a top-7 fantasy quarterback so there's also little risk here. I might have considered Steve Smith or Cecil Shorts here, but they were plucked shortly after my last selection so that wasn't even an option.
67 6.07 World Ranked Player #26 Greg Jennings WR --- 31 6
Jennings should take over for Harvin this year and granted he isnt as explosive there are still tons of targets and receptions to replace and Jennings should be that guy. As WR3 I think thats solid.
68 6.08 Fantasy Sharks Stevie Johnson WR SD 28 4
69 6.09 Zach Law on Sports Josh Gordon WR CLE 23 R
70 6.10 Gridiron Experts James Jones WR OAK 30 5
All set at TE, QB and RB, so it's time to see if I can salvage anybody at wide receiver. Lucky for me, the guy who led the NFL in receiving touchdowns is still available here at the back of round six. Jones should remain one of Aaron Rodgers' preferred red zone targets and is a good bet to score 8+ touchdowns again. He's more of a WR2 on a good fantasy team, but in this case, he's promoted to WR1.
71 6.11 Scout PRO Cam Newton QB CAR 25 1
72 6.12 FFToolbox Andrew Luck QB IND 25 R
I usually wait on a QB, especially in this format, but being on the end presents a challenge. You could always be "victim" of a huge QB run, so while I missed on Cam by one pick, I think it makes sense to grab a guy who should have a very good year two. Luck is ranked QB5 in FFToolbox preseason rankings.
73 7.01 FFToolbox Shane Vereen RB NYG 26 1
Vereen is a guy that's been skyrocketing up draft boards all summer. I've seen him as early as a late 4th round pick in some of the high stakes drafts. With questions to Gronk, the loss of both Hernandez and Welker, I think Vereen has the most to gain.
74 7.02 Scout PRO Le'Veon Bell RB PIT 22 -1
75 7.03 Gridiron Experts Jeremy Maclin WR KC 26 3
Still trying to salvage any receivers I can get. The Eagles are a bit of an enigma this year- we all expect Chip Kelly's squad to put up big numbers, but we don't know how they'll do it. If Kelly can get Michael Vick or Nick Foles up around 20+ passing touchdowns, Maclin is a good bet to catch eight or more.
76 7.04 Zach Law on Sports T.Y. Hilton WR IND 25 R
77 7.05 Fantasy Sharks Russell Wilson QB SEA 26 R
78 7.06 World Ranked Player #26 Miles Austin WR CLE 30 6
Miles Austin was around a 200 point player last year in a good offense. This year he seems to be healthier in terms of his hamstrings so he should improve upon last year so that makes a fine WR4.
79 7.07 The Huddle Danario Alexander WR --- 26 2
Another risky injury play here, but since we've already pushed a bunch of chips in with McFadden we may as well keep pushing with Alexander. If all goes according to plan, while I'm plugging four top-25 receivers into my lineup the competition will be struggling to find quality WRs to use on a weekly basis.
80 7.08 Draft TV Matthew Stafford QB DET 27 3
Drafting a QB is like walking a fine tight rope. Get too aggressive and you lose value elsewhere. Dilly dally and you'll be left with someone unimpressive. I've found the 7th to 8th round is just right. Stafford was the bottom of a massive QB tier for me with his high load of passes and every bit as good as QBs who went before him
81 7.09 KFFL Daryl Richardson RB NYJ 24 R
82 7.10 Fantasy Football QB Ahmad Bradshaw RB --- 29 5
I'll admit Bradshaw wasn't who I was targeting here. I still want to see him on the field before I commit to drafting him, but I could not pass on him when he fell to the 7.10. I created a RB depth need with my earlier draft picks, so I have to take a few calculated chances as the draft goes on.
83 7.11 BFD Fantasy Kenny Britt WR STL 26 3
He's flaky, but he's focused this season. Approaching the 8th round and getting a #1 WR is a nice deal. I do worry about Kendall Wright stealing looks though.
84 7.12 KFFSC Robert Griffin III QB WAS 25 R
The QBs were really flying off the board and I'm glad to add RG3 to my roster. His rehab progress is really astounding and having one year under his belt will make him even sharper in the pocket. We often see 2nd year quarterbacks see a small decline in fantasy production as opposing defenses are better prepared for them. A healthier Garcon and Fred Davis should give RG3 plenty of targets. I don't think it's necessary to draft Cousins as a handcuff, but I'll back him up with someone with strong QB1 potential.
85 8.01 KFFSC BenJarvus Green-Ellis RB --- 29 4
If there is a pick I regret it's this one. And that's not meant to be a knock on Green-Ellis but I was really torn between him and his teammate Bernard. I think Bernard is more dynamic and could really be amazing in a ppr league. I think BGE sees more goal line work and his history of ball security is something that will be in the coaches and QB's minds when the game is on the line.
86 8.02 BFD Fantasy Greg Olsen TE CAR 30 5
I'm a bit too high on Greg I guess because all the drafts I've seen are treating Greg like a slug. He's not and I'm thrilled to have him as a flex option.
87 8.03 Fantasy Football QB Anquan Boldin WR SF 34 9
This is one situation that I'll be monitoring closely in the pre-season. Kaepernick had a tendency to make only one read and it went something like this: is my guy opened? Yes, pass - No, run. There was no question Crabtree was Kaepernick's guy, but the question remains who he'll be looking at with his first read this year. For now, Bolding is the better value to take a chance with because of his ADP.
88 8.04 KFFL Mike Williams WR --- 27 2
89 8.05 Draft TV Kyle Rudolph TE MIN 25 1
Another end of my tier player. Kyle Rudolph gets a bad rap due to his QB but he is the only receiving red zone threat they have. I see yardage improvement and even more targets. That would make for a fine TE1
90 8.06 The Huddle Jared Cook TE STL 27 3
Missed on Jason Witten, missed on Vernon Davis, and Kyle Rudolph gets sniped right before I pick? Ouch, babe. I'm no big fan of Cook, but his projections make him an upside pick here and the position is thinning rapidly.
91 8.07 World Ranked Player #26 Giovani Bernard RB CIN 23 -1
Bernard is a rookie and wild card type player but thats the type of players I like to take a chance on. He has the talent all he needs now is an opportunity and he should get it.
92 8.08 Fantasy Sharks Jonathan Stewart RB CAR 28 4
93 8.09 Zach Law on Sports Mark Ingram RB NO 25 1
94 8.10 Gridiron Experts Lance Moore WR --- 31 7
Moore had a career year last season, so he's probably due for a bit of a drop off. Still, I couldn't take DeSean Jackson here, with Maclin already starting for my squad. I like Moore consistency and my quarterback, Drew Brees, seems to trust him on the real field. That makes Moore a decent bet on the fake field as well. Considering how long I waited to address my receiving corps, I'm not unhappy with how my starting lineup unfolded. It's also worth mentioning that I've done dozens and dozens of mock so far and this is the first one that played out like this. I chalk it up to drafting with all these genius fantasy experts.
95 8.11 Scout PRO DeSean Jackson WR WAS 28 4
96 8.12 FFToolbox Michael Floyd WR ARI 25 R
My sleeper WR of 2013. Floyd goes from not draftable to a Top 25 WR this year with Carson Palmer. You can count on him as your WR3 all year long.
97 9.01 FFToolbox Justin Blackmon WR JAX 25 R
Here's a swing for the fences pick. Yes he'll miss the first 4 games due to suspension and yes he needs to sit down his habits, but there weren't many hotter receivers late in the season than Blackmon. Year two, albeit a shortened one, should be a breakout season for Blackmon.
98 9.02 Scout PRO Kendall Wright WR TEN 25 R
99 9.03 Gridiron Experts Andre Brown RB --- 28 3
Been wanting to get this guy on all of my fantasy squad this year and haven't had much luck. Curious that I landed him in a mock filled with other insiders. Maybe they aren't as enthusiastic about Brown's potential as I am. I see him as a Brandon Jacobs type banger, but with much more talent. Brown should see most of the goal line carries for a team that consistently scores a lot of rushing touchdowns.
100 9.04 Zach Law on Sports DeAndre Hopkins WR HOU 22 -1
