Fantasy Football Mock Draft Per Day (8/11/13): 16 Teams, No. 14 Pick, Standard Scoring

Last preseason, we conducted one fantasy football mock draft per day using a mock draft simulator powered by FantasyPros.

Having begun our 2013 series of drafts on June 1st, we will continue to post our draft results and comments up until the start of the 2013 season on September 5th.

We will track all of the mocks here on this centralized page.

Like last year, I will vary the size of the league, the scoring format and draft slot and then post the results of my team with comments.

For today's mock, it is a 16-team standard-scoring mock and I had the No. 14 pick. The league starts one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, one tight end, one flex, one kicker and one team defense.

Here are my picks:

  • 1.14 - Matt Forte, RB, Chicago Bears: NFL Network's Bucky Brooks recently wrote that 1,000 rushing yards and 100 receptions might be possible for Forte in Marc Trestman's offense.
  • 2.03 - Stevan Ridley, RB, New England Patriots: Ridley should get another heavy workload in 2013 with the uncertainty surrounding the Patriots' pass catchers.
  • 3.14 - Hakeem Nicks, WR, New York Giants: Playing for a new contract, Nicks will be highly motivated this season, but durability remains his biggest question mark.
  • 4.03 - Le'Veon Bell, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers: Offensive coordinator Todd Haley has described Bell as a three-down back.
  • 5.14 - Shane Vereen, RB, New England Patriots: Vereen will have an opportunity for a monster season, and at least one of our rankers thinks Vereen outperforms Stevan Ridley (in standard leagues) this year.
  • 6.03 - Robert Griffin III, QB, Washington Redskins: Griffin III has had a remarkable, "superhuman" recovery from a torn ACL and will be under center Week 1. As the 12th QB off the board, he has top-three upside.
  • 7.14 - Michael Floyd, WR, Arizona Cardinals: Floyd closed the season well and should have an excellent opportunity for a breakout season with upgrades at quarterback and on the offensive line.
  • 8.03 - Denarius Moore, WR, Oakland Raiders: Moore disappointed last season and his quarterback situation is even worse in 2013, but the Raiders should play from behind often and Moore is the team's No. 1 wideout.
  • 9.14 - Alshon Jeffery, WR, Chicago Bears: A big red-zone target, Jeffery could score 8-10 touchdowns this year provided he stays healthy and things go well.
  • 10.03 - Ryan Broyles, WR, Detroit Lions: With an amazing recovery from his second torn ACL in as many seasons, Broyles should be heavily targeted in the league's pass-happiest offense as the team's No. 2 receiver behind Calvin Johnson.
  • 11.14 - Rueben Randle, WR, New York Giants: Randle has been extremely impressive this offseason and should have plenty of opportunities as the team's No. 3 receiver with a lot of upside in the event that Nicks can't stay healthy (again).
  • 12.03 - Rob Housler, TE, Arizona Cardinals: Extremely athetic for the position, Housler was described as a "big wide receiver" by his new coach. Plus, Carson Palmer, his new quarterback, likes to target tight ends.
  • 13.14 - E.J. Manuel, QB, Buffalo Bills: Due to his rushing ability, Manuel has top-15 upside in fantasy leagues this year.
  • 14.03 - New York Giants D/ST
  • 15.14 - Kai Forbath, K, Washington Redskins
