Fantasy Football Mock Draft Per Day (June 12th): 16 teams, No. 11 pick, PPR Scoring
Back on May 27th, we began our 2014 fantasy football mock draft per day series using our site's mock draft simulator (powered by FantasyPros).
As we continue through the offseason, I will continue to complete a mock draft every day as I vary the scoring format, league size, draft slot, etc. and today's mock is a 16-team league with point-per-reception (PPR) scoring and I have the No. 11 pick.
Here are my picks in today's mock draft:
1.11 - Eddie Lacy, RB, Green Bay Packers: Providing them with the balance their offense has long lacked, Lacy had more 20-carry games last season than any other running back. Provided Aaron Rodgers stays healthy (knock on wood), Lacy should see his yards-per-carry average rise and score double-digit touchdowns once again.
2.06 - Antonio Brown, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers: Brown was so consistent in 2013 that he did something no other receiver has ever done — five-plus receptions and 50-plus yards in all 16 regular-season games. In the process, Brown set career highs with 110 receptions, 1,499 yards and eight touchdowns.
3.11 - Victor Cruz, WR, New York Giants: Cruz had a disappointing season last year as he finished with 73 receptions for 998 yards and four touchdowns. With three of those scores coming in Week 1, he scored only one touchdown in his final 13 games. That said, he's a solid WR2 in a 16-team PPR format.
4.06 - Toby Gerhart, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars: In his four seasons backing up AD, Gerhart has 276 career rush attempts for 1,305 yards. It wouldn't surprise me if he comes close to those numbers as a featured back in Jacksonville and he's a good receiver out of the backfield as well.
5.11 - Golden Tate, WR, Detroit Lions: With Calvin Johnson on one side, Tate gives the Lions a legit No. 2 option that they have lacked over the past few seasons. Tate will have an opportunity to exceed the career-best numbers he posted last year (64/898/5).
6.06 - Andrew Luck, QB, Indianapolis Colts: It's a little earlier than I usually take a quarterback, but I thought there could be a run between this and my pick in Round 7. (And there was.) Luck finished as a top-four scorer at quarterback last season and has a more a talented group of wide receivers this season.
7.11 - Maurice Jones-Drew, RB, Oakland Raiders: Once a lock to be a top-five pick, Jones-Drew is now RB3-flex type as he winds down his career in his childhood home of Oakland. Considering Darren McFadden's injury-riddled career, MJD should at least lead the team in touches.
8.06 - Darren McFadden, RB, Oakland Raiders: Playing only 67 games in his six-year career, McFadden re-signed with the Raiders for another season but expectations remain low. That said, there is some upside for him as an RB4 if things ever fell into place for him.
9.11 - Heath Miller, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers: If not spectacular, Miller is a solid tight end to draft if you wait on the position.
10.06 - Marvin Jones, WR, Cincinnati Bengals: Jones had a breakout season last year with 51 receptions for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns. As the clear-cut No. 2 wide receiver in the Bengals offense, Jones should haul in more receptions for more yards but it's unlikely he scores double-digit touchdowns again.
11.11 - Brian Hartline, WR, Miami Dolphins: Hartline provides some wide receiver depth. Hartline has exceeded 70 catches and 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons, but he has only 10 touchdowns in 76 career games.
12.06 - Doug Baldwin, WR, Seattle Seahawks: With Tate in Detroit, Baldwin will have an opportunity to set career highs in receiving this year although being the No. 2 WR in a run-first offense caps his upside.
13.11 - Andrew Hawkins, WR, Cleveland Browns: I figured that Hawkins would last another round, which is why I took a D/ST in the previous round. Hawkins has impressed at Browns' OTAs and he's the most dynamic of the team's receivers not named Josh.
14.06 - Baltimore Ravens D/ST: Second-to-last round once again means it's time for a team defense.
15.11 - Shayne Graham, K, New Orleans Saints: And it's the best available kicker in the final round.
