Point Per Reception (PPR) Results – 10 Team August Mock Draft
One common player I see selected in the top five round this off-season is Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart. Carolina’s young runner has put together two seasons in a row of double digit touchdowns and at the end of 2009, we saw him play like a top ten fantasy back when DeAngelo Williams went down with an injury.
While Stewart does have lots of talent and ability, I caution fantasy owners to make sure you select him as a flex play option this season. As long as Williams is healthy he will be the teams starting running back as Head Coach John Fox is very loyal to his veteran players.
Williams has great talent in his own right as he posted twenty touchdowns and was the MVP of fantasy football just two seasons ago.
With Stewart stuck in a backup role it will be hard to count on him every week as there will be times he doesn’t produce. That is ok for a flex play, but you need more stability from your No.2 fantasy back.
Another player worth noting from this draft is Packers tight end Jermichael Finley as he is going at a nice price in many leagues this summer. Finley is being selected somewhere around the eighth round of most drafts, and that is a decent value for this talent.
Since Finley had some character problems last season, I thought it was important to see him stay out of trouble and continue his growth as an overall player. Finley has done just that this off-season and that is a big sign for things to come.
