Ovr Pick Franchise Selection Pos. Team Age Exp.
1 1.10 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Dez Bryant WR DAL 25 4
The FFWC lineup rules are start 1-2-3-1 and 2 Flex. It's crucial to trot out 4, even 5 Wide receivers weekly in PPR leagues such as this. Dez can make the case for the #2 WR this season behind Mega.
2 2.03 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Julio Jones WR ATL 25 3
It took me very little time to take Julio Jones who I have ranked the #3 WR overall for 2013. While my RB1 won't come until pick 3.10, I like the value I've been seeing drop at RB later in the draft.
3 3.10 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins DeMarco Murray RB DAL 26 3
DeMarco Murray represents "through the roof" potential in PPR fantasy leagues. The only question is health, which has been an issue following Murray his entire career, not unlike Reggie Bush who in his early career couldn't shake the stigma of injury prone, however look no further than his last two years of becoming NFL tough. I'm projecting Murray on what he can do, and that's all I can really do. There's only a handful of backs that bring his potential workload in a high powered offense to the table. He is a top 5 RB in PPR if he plays 16 games.
4 4.03 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Percy Harvin WR NYJ 26 5
I was all set to take my RB2 Lamar Miller but all the other owners forgot to draft Percy Harvin! Yes there will be an adjustment period between he and Russell Wilson, but it shouldn't take long for Percy to be one of the top weapons on the field.
5 5.10 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Stevan Ridley RB NE 25 3
This is grand larceny. For a team like mine that only drafted one running back through 4 rounds, to see Stevan Ridley's name here was crazy. I had planned on taking a much riskier pick here, so to snag Ridley as my RB2 in the 5th round is extreme value. The Hernandez and Gronk issues should bode well for Ridley and his goalline opportunities.
6 6.03 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Josh Gordon WR CLE 23 2
Kid has to serve a suspension, but after that, he makes a very solid WR4 for my squad week in and week out. If he stays out of trouble, Gordon should prove to take that next step in fantasy star development.
7 7.10 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Matt Ryan QB ATL 29 6
Okay, more highway robbery. Letting Matt Ryan slip to the 7th while some are paying 2nd round price for Peyton. Hmm, there's a good chance IMO, that Ryan outscores Peyton Manning this year. I'm just sayin...
8 8.03 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Giovani Bernard RB CIN 22 1
My announced 2013 Skyrocket RB. This is the running back whose fantasy value will skyrocket by the time September comes. Why? He's already announced as the 3rd down guy catching Dalton's dumpers. Throw in a few pre-season runs, and this kid is bringing twice the lightning that the Law Firm does. By week 8, he could be challenging for serious carries. I think he's just much more explosive than BJGE and the coaching staff will see it.
9 9.10 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Greg Olsen TE CAR 29 7
One of my projected top tight ends this season, by process of elimination. The Panthers interestingly didn't really address additional weapons for Cam Newton, so we'll see more Olsen, Smith and LaFell this season.
10 10.03 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Michael Floyd WR ARI 24 2
My sleeper WR of 2013. Carson Palmer will throw much more than any combination of QBs in Arizona last season. While Fitz will command the ball, Floyd has a chance to be the sidekick in an offense that will have to throw the ball to stay competitive. He showed signs of great improvement late season and all words out of camp point to big things in 2013.
11 11.10 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Pierre Thomas RB NO 29 7
12 12.03 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Andre Roberts WR WAS 26 4
13 13.10 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Andy Dalton QB CIN 26 3
14 14.03 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Seattle Def SEA    
15 15.10 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Mike Gillislee RB MIA 23 1
16 16.03 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Dwayne Allen TE IND 24 2
17 17.10 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Stephen Hill WR FA 23 2
18 18.03 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Christine Michael RB SEA 23 1
19 19.10 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Marcedes Lewis TE JAX 30 8
20 20.03 FFToolbox - Scott Atkins Greg Zuerlein PK STL 26 2
