PPR Mock Draft Analysis

Thursday, August 12, 2010

Round Twelve

12.1. Bengals RB Bernard Scott
12.2. 49ers QB Alex Smith
12.3. Jaguars WR Mike Thomas
12.4. Seahawks WR Golden Tate
12.5. Jaguars QB David Garrard
12.6. Jets WR Jerricho Cotchery
12.7. New York Jets Defense
12.8. Minnesota Vikings Defense
12.9. Chiefs QB Matt Cassel
12.10. Colts WR Anthony Gonzalez
12.11. Rotoworld - Rams WR Laurent Robinson
12.12. Redskins WR Devin Thomas

Comments: Thomas' stranglehold on a starting job in Jacksonville arguably gives him the highest upside of any player picked in this round. While I'm not touting him for a true statistical breakout, he's worth a serious look. At Arizona, Thomas drew comparisons to Panthers receiver Steve Smith for his deceptively physical style and game-breaking speed. ... Defenses are starting to go, and it's too early with six rounds left. The Jets seem to be the consensus No. 1 fantasy defense this year, but I don't see it. There's not a double-digit sack threat on the roster.

Round Thirteen

13.1. Ravens RB Willis McGahee
13.2. Rotoworld - Bucs WR Mike Williams
13.3. Redskins RB Larry Johnson
13.4. Bills RB Marshawn Lynch
13.5. Lions WR Nate Burleson
13.6. Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas
13.7. Packers WR James Jones
13.8. Steelers TE Heath Miller
13.9. Jets TE Dustin Keller
13.10. Chiefs WR Chris Chambers
13.11. Seahawks RB Leon Washington
13.12. Raiders QB Jason Campbell

Comments: McGahee was my 13th-round target, but he went one spot before me. I "settled" for the No. 1 receiver in Tampa Bay. We moved Williams up our rankings Wednesday night. The Syracuse product won't be consistent, but is bound to have some big games as the Bucs' go-to wideout. ... Owners drafting Lynch in the latter rounds are still hoping for a preseason trade. There are no indications coming out of Buffalo that that's a possibility.

Round Fourteen

14.1. Browns WR Mohamed Massaquoi
14.2. Philadelphia Eagles Defense
14.3. Baltimore Ravens Defense
14.4. Vikings WR Bernard Berrian
14.5. Bucs RB Derrick Ward
14.6. Green Bay Packers Defense
14.7. Saints WR Lance Moore
14.8. Bears TE Greg Olsen
14.9. Cowboys WR Roy Williams
14.10. Pittsburgh Steelers Defense
14.11. Rotoworld - Vikings RB Toby Gerhart
14.12. Cowboys RB Tashard Choice

Comments: With Sidney Rice's injury continuing to linger, Berrian's fantasy stock is on the rise. Berrian averaged 20.1 yards a catch in 2008 and is only 29 years old. He'll be a fantasy starter if Rice misses regular season action. ... I didn't draft Adrian Peterson, but went with Gerhart anyway. Albert Young isn't a serious contender for the No. 2 running back job in Minnesota. If Peterson blows out a knee, Gerhart will be an every-week RB2.

Round Fifteen

15.1. Vikings QB Tarvaris Jackson
15.2. Rotoworld - San Francisco 49ers Defense
15.3. Cardinals QB Matt Leinart
15.4. Saints K Garrett Hartley
15.5. Packers RB James Starks
15.6. Dolphins RB Lex Hilliard
15.7. Eagles RB Mike Bell
15.8. Rams WR Donnie Avery
15.9. Packers RB Brandon Jackson
15.10. Seahawks RB Julius Jones
15.11. Dallas Cowboys Defense
15.12. Texans WR Kevin Walter

Comments: Out with a hamstring injury since May, Starks no longer looks like a lock to make Green Bay's roster. It's a shame because he is a promising long-term prospect and would've been an explosive upgrade over Brandon Jackson on third downs.

Round Sixteen

16.1. Lions TE Tony Scheffler
16.2. Raiders K Chaz Schilens
16.3. Patriots RB Kevin Faulk
16.4. New York Giants Defense
16.5. Miami Dolphins Defense
16.6. Giants WR Mario Manningham
16.7. Falcons RB Jason Snelling
16.8. Dolphins WR Davone Bess
16.9. Chargers K Nate Kaeding
16.10. Dolphins WR Brian Hartline
16.11. Rotoworld - Bears K Robbie Gould
16.12. Chicago Bears Defense

Round Seventeen Manningham is a great 16th-round pick. Steve Smith is already banged up, and Manningham is talented enough to be a usable WR3 if Smith or Hakeem Nicks suffers an in-season injury.

17.1. Chargers WR Legedu Naanee
17.2. Rotoworld - Titans RB Javon Ringer
17.3. Saints RB Lynell Hamilton
17.4. New Orleans Saints Defense
17.5. Packers K Mason Crosby
17.6. Patriots K Stephen Gostkowski
17.7. Titans K Rob Bironas
17.8. Cincinnati Bengals Defense
17.9. Vikings K Ryan Longwell
17.10. Titans TE Bo Scaife
17.11. Giants TE Kevin Boss
17.12. Indianapolis Colts Defense

Round Eighteen

18.1. Dolphins K Dan Carpenter
18.2. Eagles K David Akers
18.3. Giants K Lawrence Tynes
18.4. Titans WR Damian Williams
18.5. Cardinals K Jay Feely
18.6. Redskins TE Fred Davis
18.7. Cardinals WR Early Doucet
18.8. Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer
18.9. San Diego Chargers Defense
18.10. Cowboys K David Buehler
18.11. Rotoworld - Eagles QB Michael Vick
18.12. Ravens K Shayne Graham
