Fantasy Football Dynasty Mock Draft: Round 6 Complete

We have now completed half of our new 2013 fantasy football dynasty mock draft.

Here are the picks from Round 6:

6.01 - Dan Yanotchko (Team 3): Frank Gore, RB, San Francisco 49ers

Although Gore just turned 30 years old (on May 14th), he's coming off back-to-back 1,200-yard seasons. It's possible that he has one more 1,200-yard season in him.

Considering Gore's age and the fact that the team drafted Marcus Lattimore, however, Gore owners should see a (potentially significant) drop in production after this season.

As the 27th running back off the board, this is a good spot for him.

6.02 - Kevin Hanson (Team 3): Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks

Along with fellow rookies Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, Wilson had a fantastic rookie season.

While Wilson's rookie season began relatively slowly, he was one of the best fantasy quarterbacks in the second half last year. From Week 9 through Week 17, he posted a league-best 120.3 passer rating and scored 20 touchdowns (16 passing and four rushing) with only two interceptions thrown.

By adding one of the league's most dynamic players in Percy Harvin to the team's offense, that only enhances Wilson's fantasy value for 2013 and beyond.

6.03 - Brendan Donahue (Team 3): Mike Wallace, WR, Miami Dolphins

Despite setting a career low with an average of 13.1 yards per reception last year, Wallace, who signed a five-year deal with the Dolphins, provides the Dolphins with the explosive, big-play receiver that they lacked.

Although he is coming off a down year, Wallace has averaged 1,095 yards and scored a total of 26 touchdowns over the past three seasons.

6.04 - Sean Beazley (Team 3): Tavon Austin, WR, St. Louis Rams

The Rams have lost Danny Amendola via free agency, but they traded up in the draft this year to select Austin with the eighth overall pick. Austin has the ability to make huge plays any time he touches the ball whether he is lined up in the slot or backfield and in the return game.

Not only is Austin explosive (4.34 forty), he is strong (14 reps of 225 pounds) for his size (174 pounds) and durable (never missed a practice at West Virginia). Last year, Austin had six 100-yard receiving games including 215 yards against Baylor. In addition, he had a 344-yard rushing game (on 21 carries) against Oklahoma on 11/17.

6.05 - Sean Beazley (Team 2): Pierre Garcon, WR, Washington Redskins

Garcon's tenure as a Redskin got off to a great start: four receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown in the first quarter of his first game. Unfortunately, he suffered a toe injury on that touchdown that kept him out the rest of that game and six other games.

Provided he can stay healthy for a full season, Garcon, who turns 27 in August, should be in store for a career year with the Redskins in 2013. And with one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL throwing him the ball, the best is yet to come for Garcon.

6.06 - Kevin Hanson (Team 2): Jonathan Stewart, RB, Carolina Panthers

Back in 2009, The Daily Show gave fantasy owners a glimpse of what life would like if he were featured in a more prominent role within the offense. That year, he rushed for 1,133 yards and 10 touchdowns on 221 carries.

Purely based on talent alone, Stewart would be one of the top 10 or 12 running backs off the board. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners, the opportunity has been less plentiful than desired. In the past three seasons, he has averaged only 10.6 carries per game.

With DeAngelo Williams now 30 years old, Stewart should see a larger share of the workload this year and an increasing role going forward.

6.07 - Brendan Donahue (Team 2): Vick Ballard, RB, Indianapolis Colts

It will be Ballard, not Donald Brown, as the Colts' featured back in 2013.

Although he is far from explosive, the big back (5-10, 220 pounds) was productive as a rookie. From Week 6 to the end of the season, Ballard carried ball 190 times for 772 yards, which was 14th in the league during that span.

6.08 - Dan Yanotchko (Team 2): BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB, Cincinnati Bengals

The Law Firm failed to score double-digit touchdowns for the first time in three seasons, but he set career highs in carries (278), rushing yards (1,094) and receptions (22) last season. Less than a dynamic back, Green-Ellis and Shonn Greene were the only backs in the league to reach the 1,000-yard milestone with an average of less than 4.00 yards per carry.

With the Bengals drafting Gio Bernard with the 36th overall pick in this year's draft, it's unlikely that Green-Ellis rushes for 1,000 yards for a second straight year. Going forward, Bernard should see an increased role at the expense of BJGE.

6.09 - Dan Yanotchko (Team 1): Danny Amendola, WR, New England Patriots

In his six seasons in New England, Wes Welker had 110 receptions or more five times. That is three more than any player in the history of the NFL.

Provided he stays healthy for a full season, Amendola should come close to that total this season and in future years. That said, Amendola has struggled with durability over the past couple of seasons.

6.10 - Kevin Hanson (Team 1): Stevie Johnson, WR, Buffalo Bills

Since breaking out three seasons ago, Johnson has been remarkably consistent. He has finished each of those seasons with 76-82 receptions and 1,004-1,073 yards per season.

With a rookie quarterback, there may be some risk of falling short of those numbers in 2013. Then again, he reached those numbers with The Amish Rifle getting him the ball the past three seasons.

6.11 - Brendan Donahue (Team 1): Antonio Brown, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers

After breaking out in 2011 with 1,108 yards, Brown had a disappointing season in 2012. Not only did he miss three games last year, but his average yards per game (60.5) and per reception (11.9) dropped from 69.3 and 16.1, respectively.

With 60 Minutes departing via free agency, however, Brown will have the opportunity to have a bounce-back season and take a step forward in 2013. On a positive note, he averaged a career-high 5.1 receptions per game and caught five touchdown passes.

Brown will turn 27 years old before the start of the 2013 season.

6.12 - Sean Beazley (Team 1): Jason Witten, TE, Dallas Cowboys

Not only did Witten record a career-high 110 receptions last year, but it was the single-season record for tight ends.

Over the past six seasons, Witten has had four 1,000-yard seasons and a minimum of 942 yards during that span. During that stretch, he has averaged 92 receptions for 1,018 yards and five touchdowns. The 31-year-old tight end has finished with more than five touchdowns only once in the past five years.
