PPR Mock Draft Results
Delving into recent mock draft trends for PPR leagues I decided to break down a recent mock I participated in on Fantasy Football Calculator website. Below I have a listed all fifteen rounds and the players I selected in each round. I’ve also included some thoughts on each player to help you with some possible final thoughts before you entire your live draft. You can also find a breakdown of the first five rounds of this mock draft as listed below.
1. Chris Johnson, RB- Johnson is likely to miss time into the regular season as contract talks are reportedly going slow. Johnson wants to be one of the top paid players in the game and not just the highest paid running back. That said, at this point in the first round, you’re getting a player who could have been the number one overall pick if he wasn’t holding out, so look to Johnson as a value in the later part of the first round.
2. Philip Rivers, QB - I took Philip Rivers higher than his ADP suggest he should go, but I just feel like this guy could be the best fantasy quarterback going. Rivers was unbelievable last season, and it didn’t seem to matter that Vincent Jackson was gone, or Antonio Gates was out most of the second half. With all his pass catchers back in the mix, Rivers is likely to have a career year, and get serious consideration for the leagues’ MVP trophy.
3. Jahvid Best, RB- Great value pick at this point, as it seems many fantasy owners are dogging Jahvid Best for his minor concussion a couple of weeks ago. Sure, Best had a bad concussion to end his college career, but I feel his recent concussion has been way over blown in the press, and has led many to balk on targeting him in the first two rounds on draft day.
With Mikel Leshoure gone, and only Jerome Harrison as a comparable backup, Best will be a feature back when on the field and should have some huge games.
4. Miles Austin, WR – Expect Miles Austin to remain as Ton Romo’s No.1 target in the passing game, but Dez Bryant could cause him some problems, if he’s ready to produce at a high level. I expect the Cowboys to have a big offensive season, and there should be plenty of targets to go around to make both receivers top fifteen receivers.
5. Mike Williams (TB),WR- Josh Freeman clearly favors Mike Williams in the passing game, and that connection will continue to be solid this year. I do expect Williams to go through a learning curve, as defenses start to pay more attention to him, but he should catch around 90 balls this year.
7. Percy Harvin, WR – Clearly, the No.1 target in the Vikings passing game, Percy Harvin should get at least 80 receptions this year.
8. Marshawn Lynch, RB- Stay away from the Seahawks passing game, but Marshawn Lynch has value with an upgraded offensive line.
9. Joseph Addai, RB – Joseph Addai is at least good for 50 yards rushing, a few receptions and a touchdown in the games he’s on the field.
10. Lance Moore, WR - With Marques Colston coming back from a major knee surgery, Lance Moore has a chance to be the No.1 receiver in New Orleans.
11. Lee Evans, WR - Joe Flacco and Lee Evans look like they’ve played years together already, and Evans is primed for a possible career year.
13. Delone Carter, RB – If Addai goes down, this is a name your going to hear a lot about in fantasy circles. Carter is a good looking rookie and will make an impact this year.
15. Bernard Scott, RB - Cedric Benson is likely to miss time at some point this season, and Bernard Scott looks primed to make an impact. Scott should be the third down back to start the season, and has upside as a deep sleeper.
