PPR Mock Draft Analysis

Thursday, August 12, 2010




Round Six

6.1. Colts WR Pierre Garcon
6.2. Giants RB Brandon Jacobs
6.3. Redskins RB Clinton Portis
6.4. Cowboys TE Jason Witten
6.5. Eagles TE Brent Celek
6.6. Steelers WR Mike Wallace
6.7. Cowboys WR Dez Bryant
6.8. Bears QB Jay Cutler
6.9. Saints RB Reggie Bush
6.10. Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez
6.11. Rotoworld - Redskins WR Santana Moss
6.12. Seahawks WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh

Comments: The owner who drafted Cutler smartly pointed out that the league's scoring negates just one point for an interception. Many leagues take away two points. Cutler was the 11th overall quarterback in this format last season. ... The sixth round took place before Bryant's high ankle sprain. The Bryant owner would probably like that one back. ... I like Moss as my WR3 as long as I have a high-upside WR4. I'd get one (Johnny Knox) later on.

Round Seven

7.1. Ravens QB Joe Flacco
7.2. Rotoworld - Eagles QB Kevin Kolb
7.3. Cardinals WR Steve Breaston
7.4. Bengals WR Terrell Owens
7.5. Titans WR Kenny Britt
7.6. Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin
7.7. Cowboys RB Marion Barber
7.8. Bears WR Devin Hester
7.9. Vikings QB Brett Favre
7.10. Packers WR Donald Driver
7.11. Texans TE Owen Daniels
7.12. Chargers WR Malcom Floyd

Comments: Most pundits are down on T.O., but I believe he's a fine seventh-round pick, and wouldn't be surprised if he outscored Chad Ochocinco. If the Hall of Fame game was any indication -- and I'm not saying it is -- Carson Palmer will look to Owens early and often. ... Picks I didn't like: Breaston, Driver, and Daniels. Daniels isn't a lock to be ready for Week 1, Driver is already dealing with a knee surgery-related injury, and Breaston's gone too early in every draft I've done.

Round Eight

8.1. Patriots WR Julian Edelman
8.2. Bears WR Devin Aromashodu
8.3. Raiders TE Zach Miller
8.4. Dolphins RB Ricky Williams
8.5. Giants QB Eli Manning
8.6. Texans RB Ben Tate
8.7. Chargers WR Vincent Jackson
8.8. Lions QB Matthew Stafford
8.9. Bucs RB Carnell Williams
8.10. Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson
8.11. Rotoworld - Bears WR Johnny Knox
8.12. Raiders RB Darren McFadden

Comments: It's difficult to see what the Edelman drafter was doing with all signs pointing to Wes Welker being ready for Opening Day. Edelman won't have a significant role barring a Welker setback. The pick would've made more sense if the owner was "handcuffing" Welker with Edelman, but he wasn't. ... Knox was the third Bears receiver drafted, and indications out of Bourbonnais are that he'll be Chicago's featured offensive player. I'm biased, but this reeks of value. ... In contrast, Tate was the first Texans back picked. The owner who drafted Tate apparently doesn't read Rotoworld. ... Other picks I didn't like: L.T., and Eli Manning and Stafford before Matt Ryan.

Round Nine

9.1. Texans RB Steve Slaton
9.2. Rotoworld - Bills RB C.J. Spiller
9.3. Colts RB Donald Brown
9.4. Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw
9.5. Raiders RB Michael Bush
9.6. Bills RB Fred Jackson
9.7. Bucs TE Kellen Winslow
9.8. Browns RB Montario Hardesty
9.9. Cardinals RB Tim Hightower
9.10. Redskins QB Donovan McNabb
9.11. Browns RB Jerome Harrison
9.12. Patriots RB Laurence Maroney

Comments: Spiller is my RB4. Too bad this won't be played out. ... Bradshaw's ADP will inevitably rise due to news he may start ahead of Brandon Jacobs. It's going to be a 50:50 split, but Bradshaw has emerged as the obvious value pick in New York's backfield. ... Hardesty is currently listed as a fourth-stringer in Cleveland. He should open the season as the Browns' No. 3 back at worst, but Hardesty isn't noticeably a better talent than Jerome Harrison or James Davis.

Round Ten

10.1. Ravens WR Derrick Mason
10.2. Jets WR Santonio Holmes
10.3. Bucs WR Arrelious Benn
10.4. Broncos WR Jabar Gaffney
10.5. Broncos RB Correll Buckhalter
10.6. Texans RB Arian Foster
10.7. Falcons QB Matt Ryan
10.8. Bills WR Lee Evans
10.9. Jets WR Braylon Edwards
10.10. Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster
10.11. Rotoworld - Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger
10.12. Broncos WR Eddie Royal

Comments: Another ugly round. How far has Lee Evans fallen? The No. 7 fantasy receiver in 2006, Evans hasn't finished better than the WR27 over the past three seasons. Good news: the talent is still there, and the Bills don't have anyone else to throw to. ... The 10th round is the soonest I've seen McCluster off the board after about 10 preseason drafts. ... Roethlisberger is my Kevin Kolb insurance. I also drafted Michael Vick in the 18th in case Kolb flops.

Round Eleven

11.1. Bengals QB Carson Palmer
11.2. Rotoworld - Redskins TE Chris Cooley
11.3. Chargers RB Darren Sproles
11.4. Vikings TE Visanthe Shiancoe
11.5. Seahawks TE John Carlson
11.6. Chiefs RB Thomas Jones
11.7. Dolphins QB Chad Henne
11.8. Texans WR Jacoby Jones
11.9. Panthers QB Matt Moore
11.10. Lions RB Kevin Smith
11.11. Colts WR Austin Collie
11.12. Bears RB Chester Taylor

Comments: Palmer didn't have much time to throw in Sunday's Hall of Fame game, but he sure didn't have much zip on his passes, either. The entire Rotoworld crew remains skeptical that Palmer still has the arm power to be worth any more than a late-round fantasy pick. ... I've gotten Cooley in countless preseason drafts. Along with Carlson (who also went in this round), he's one of the best values entering the 2010 fantasy season.
