2013 Fantasy Football Mock Draft: Round 11 Complete
Here are the results from Round 11 of our 2013 fantasy football mock draft (standard scoring):
This could be Sanders final year with the Steelers. There was some speculation this offseason that the Steelers might not match the offer sheet made to him by the Patriots, but ultimately they matched it.
After posting career highs last year with 44 receptions and 626 yards, Sanders should have an opportunity to set new career highs in 2013. With Mike Wallace now in Miami, Sanders will get many more than the 74 targets he had in 2012.
11.02 - Dan Yanotchko (Team 1): San Francisco 49ers Defense
The 11th round is way too early to draft a team defense even if it is the best (or one of the best) defense(s). At this point, I would prefer to add more depth at running back or wide receiver.
Olsen set career highs last season with 69 receptions for 843 yards and also had at least five touchdowns for the fifth consecutive season. Even though Rob Chudzinski (and his TE-friendly offense) has moved on to Cleveland, Olsen should continue to feature prominently within the team's offense considering the lack of weapons at wide receiver.
Playing a total of five games in two seasons, it's an understatement to say that Williams has struggled to stay healthy early in his NFL career.
Despite entering last season with plenty of hype, Williams averaged only 2.8 rushing yards per carry on his 58 carries. He's more talented than those numbers suggest, but there is also plenty of depth on the team with the addition of Rashard Mendenhall (via free agency) and Stepfan Taylor and Andre Ellington (via the draft).
In his second season, Dalton set career highs in passing yards (3,669), completion percentage (62.3%) and passing touchdowns (27) last year. In fact, only six quarterbacks threw more touchdowns. In addition, Dalton ran in another four scores.
While he lacks elite physical tools, Dalton is a heady quarterback with some young talented weapons led by A.J. Green on the roster.
In my opinion, it's too soon to draft a second quarterback. In fact, most or all of my teams in 12-team leagues will only have one quarterback and I'll look to the waiver wire for my bye-week replacement.
Recovering from a torn ACL injury, his second in the past two years, Broyles was cleared for training camp, which is obviously good news. In college, Broyles set the NCAA record for most receptions (349) and he's second in receiving yards (4,586).
Especially with Titus Young gone, the second-year receiver will have the opportunity to be the second-most productive receiver on the team behind Calvin Johnson, who will continuously draw double (and triple) teams. Last year, Matthew Stafford set the NFL record for most pass attempts in a season.
Woodhead was one of the most productive under-the-radar fantasy running backs last season. He finished with 301 rushing yards, 446 receiving yards on 40 receptions and a total of seven touchdowns.
Playing behind the injury-prone Mathews also means that Woodhead may (read: will) get an opportunity or two to play a much more prominent role within the offense for a few weeks.
There were 20 players that had at least 1,000 receiving yards last year and Hartline was one of them. That's the good news. The bad news is Hartline scored only one touchdown, which ranked him 20th out of that 20-player group.
With the offseason addition of Mike Wallace, Hartline will no longer be the team's No. 1 receiver and is likely to see a reduction in his targets. He finished 18th in the league in targets (131) last year.
11.09 - Dan Yanotchko (Team 3): Aaron Dobson, WR, New England Patriots
With good size (6-3, 204), speed and hands, Dobson had zero drops last season on 92 targets as this chart illustrates.
A problem he won't have with the Patriots, Dobson's collegiate numbers were partly held back due to the team's quarterback play. He never reached 700 receiving yards in any of his four seasons at Marshall.
Rice played more games in 2012 (16) than he played in both of the previous seasons combined (15). Provided he stays healthy for another full season, Rice would be a WR4 with relatively limited upside from there as Percy Harvin is clearly the team's No. 1 wideout (when healthy).
Fortunately for Rice (and unfortunately for Harvin) owners, Harvin is dealing with a slight tear in his labrum (hip) and may need surgery.
As a deep threat with 4.41 speed, Givens ranked sixth in the NFL last year in yards-per-reception average (16.6). In fact, Givens had a five-game streak from Weeks 4 to 8 of games with a 50-yard reception in each of those games. Only four receivers had more receptions of at least 40 yards than Givens last year.
A better real quarterback than fantasy one, Big Ben has missed a total of nine games over the past four years and has not played a full season since 2008. Nobody would question Roethlisberger's toughness, but he takes more than his fair share of hits as extending plays is one of his strengths (literally).
During that four-year span, Roethlisberger has averaged 3,718 yards, 22 touchdowns and 10 interceptions per season.
