2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3

Draft took place July 9th, 2013

Scoring System:

Ovr Pick Franchise Selection Pos. Team Age Exp.
51 5.03 FFToolbox Mike Wallace WR MIN 28 3
52 5.04 ProFootballFocus Torrey Smith WR SF 26 1
53 5.05 TheHuddle Giovani Bernard RB CIN 23 -1
I am very high on Antonio Brown and toyed with taking him here and seeing if Bernard would fall to me in the 6th. But when it came down to it there was more depth available at WR so I opted for Gio instead. At worst his involvement in the pass game will make him a flex play. Upside is that he finishes as a low level RB2.
54 5.06 FantasyTaz Shane Vereen RB NYG 26 1
55 5.07 RotoExperts - Scott Steve Smith WR BAL 35 11
56 5.08 DraftSharks Chris Ivory RB NYJ 27 2
This one felt like a reach, but Ivory could definitely provide this type of value if he stays healthy. The Jets' line remains good, and the team should showcase that again after getting rid of the plodding Shonn Greene. Ivory is the "runs angry" type.
57 5.09 World Ranked #20 Aaron Rodgers QB GB 31 7
58 5.10 FootballDiehards Eddie Lacy RB GB 24 -1
To maximize the talents of Aaron Rodgers, the Packers need to take a sledgehammer to Cover-2 defenses this year. Lacy can be that sledgehammer if he's healthy. Remember, Lacy, at full strength, was the runaway head of the draft class at his position. On the best team in college football, in the best conference, he rushed for 1,322 yards with 18 touchdowns. And yes, Jonathan Franklin worries me a bit.
59 5.11 DynastyLeagueFootball Jonathan Stewart RB CAR 28 4
60 5.12 KFFL - Tim Drew Brees QB NO 36 11
QBs fell in this format because of the expanded Flex format, and I'm not one usually to jump on the position this early. But this is where I typically start looking, and you can't get much better value than Brees here. I decided to start a run and have a consistent week-to-week stud. Even if they run more, I'm not concerned.
61 6.01 KFFL - Tim Jason Witten TE DAL 32 9
Until Dallas develops a stable WR3, Witten will command elite PPR numbers. His touchdown total might not reach 10, but he'll be good for double-digit points most weeks. Along the same lines of the Brees pick -- the market was deflated, so I took advantage.
62 6.02 DynastyLeagueFootball Eric Decker WR NYJ 28 2
63 6.03 FootballDiehards Antonio Brown WR PIT 26 2
Mike Wallace's free-agent defection to Miami leaves Brown as the de facto No. 1 receiver in Pittsburgh. Is he ready for that role? We'll see. I thought he regressed a bit last season. That said, I'm pretty comfortable with him as my WR3 -- one with the upside to produce at a higher level.
64 6.04 World Ranked #20 Greg Jennings WR --- 31 6
65 6.05 DraftSharks Cam Newton QB CAR 25 1
If you can get Newton as your starter in normal drafts, go for it. I certainly followed the value board here. As the draft went on, I found myself wishing I'd waited for Tony Romo. But looking back at the results, I don't love any of the RBs or WRs who went between this pick and my next. QBs will rarely slide like they did here.
66 6.06 RotoExperts - Scott Peyton Manning QB DEN 39 14
67 6.07 FantasyTaz Tony Gonzalez TE --- 39 15
68 6.08 TheHuddle Cecil Shorts WR HOU 27 1
Wanted Brown to slide but missed by 5 picks. Shorts should be solid enough as a WR3.
69 6.09 ProFootballFocus Stevie Johnson WR SD 28 4
70 6.10 FFToolbox Josh Gordon WR CLE 23 R
71 6.11 Rotoexperts - Tony Vernon Davis TE SF 31 6
72 6.12 FantasySharks James Jones WR OAK 31 5
73 7.01 FantasySharks Ben Tate RB --- 26 2
74 7.02 Rotoexperts - Tony Jeremy Maclin WR KC 26 3
75 7.03 FFToolbox T.Y. Hilton WR IND 25 R
76 7.04 ProFootballFocus Tom Brady QB NE 37 12
77 7.05 TheHuddle Danario Alexander WR --- 26 2
Alexander's health makes him a bit of a risk, but as a WR4 the upside he presents made him to tempting to pass on.
78 7.06 FantasyTaz Tavon Austin WR STL 24 -1
79 7.07 RotoExperts - Scott Mike Williams WR --- 27 2
80 7.08 DraftSharks Andre Brown RB --- 28 3
I like Wilson's talent the same as most folks. But I also won't forget the fact that he spent most of last year on the sideline, with coaches saying he wasn't ready for even a complementary backfield role. Brown, meanwhile, looked terrific when he got the ball. I'd bet on Wilson putting up bigger numbers, but I'm also open to the possibility of Brown outscoring him. At the least, he should be the goal-line back under a coach who has long favored a 2-RB approach.
81 7.09 World Ranked #20 Daryl Richardson RB NYJ 24 R
82 7.10 FootballDiehards DeSean Jackson WR WAS 28 4
Was totally hoping Tavon Austin would reach me here, but I'll settle for the older version. ... Once considered one of the league's most dangerous offensive weapons, Jackson's productivity hasn't matched his special talent for more than two seasons. The hope here is that Chip Kelly can figure out how to tap back into Jackson's big-play ability.
83 7.11 DynastyLeagueFootball Miles Austin WR PHI 30 6
84 7.12 KFFL - Tim Mark Ingram RB NO 25 1
You could hear a pin drop when it came to reliable RB depth here, and I took a chance on Ingram, who finished last year strong and could receive some favoratism from Sean Payton (who said he wants to run a bit more) and the organization (contract). He won't usurp Darren Sproles, but Ingram scoring seven or so touchdowns would do fine for flex value.
85 8.01 KFFL - Tim Kenny Britt WR STL 26 3
I wanted Miles Austin but was sniped. Britt is a similar downfield, high-risk, high-reward commodity who's trying to stay out of trouble this offseason. For my WR3, not a bad setup for someone who could rival V-Jax in average target depth.
86 8.02 DynastyLeagueFootball Kendall Wright WR TEN 25 R
87 8.03 FootballDiehards Lance Moore WR --- 31 7
Only WR Marques Colston (58) has caught more of Drew Brees' scoring passes than Moore (36). Moore set a career high for receiving yards in 2012. He also finished ranked first on the Saints in yards per catch with a 16.0 average. With Devery Henderson no longer in the mix, Moore should play an even more prominent role (in an offense that has ranked in the top five in the league each of the past five years).
88 8.04 World Ranked #20 Justin Blackmon WR JAX 25 R
89 8.05 DraftSharks Michael Floyd WR ARI 25 R
Floyd didn't do a whole lot as a rookie, but Bruce Arians has had a lot of nice things to say about him since taking over the head job this offseason. Floyd took over a starting role in team workouts and gets a boost from the attention necessarily paid to Larry Fitzgerald. This tall speedster brings loads of 2013 upside.
90 8.06 RotoExperts - Scott Vick Ballard RB IND 24 R
Pick made based on My Draft Queue
91 8.07 FantasyTaz Isaiah Pead RB --- 25 R
92 8.08 TheHuddle DeAndre Hopkins WR HOU 22 -1
Upside pick, playing opposite of Andre Johnson will keep Hopkins in single coverage.
93 8.09 ProFootballFocus BenJarvus Green-Ellis RB --- 29 4
94 8.10 FFToolbox Kyle Rudolph TE MIN 25 1
95 8.11 Rotoexperts - Tony Matt Ryan QB ATL 29 4
96 8.12 FantasySharks Anquan Boldin WR SF 34 9
97 9.01 FantasySharks Zac Stacy RB STL 23 -1
98 9.02 Rotoexperts - Tony Emmanuel Sanders WR DEN 28 2
99 9.03 FFToolbox Bernard Pierce RB JAX 23 R
100 9.04 ProFootballFocus Robert Griffin III QB WAS 25 R
