Drafted out of the 10th spot. The Draft rewarded 1pt. per reception.
Kaepernick should have a big year both passing and rushing, the loss of Crabtree should hurt him a lot, but not much. According to ADP reports on Fantasy Football Calculator he is usually going in the sixth round so getting him in the seventh is pretty good value. If I could redo the draft I would probably draft Russell Wilson instead, Kaepernick seems more exciting, but I think Wilson will turn out being more consistent.
Freeman should have a big year next year, and he wasn’t bad from a fantasy perspective. Sure the 17 interceptions are a lot, but 27 touchdowns, and 4000 yards isn’t too shabby. I’m probably going to draft Freeman as a QB 2 wherever I can.
Spiller falling to 10 is a steal, with Chan Gailey out of the picture, and Doug Marrone stating he won’t limit Spiller this year, he should be in for a career high in touches, and be very active in the passing game.
There is a lot of hype surrounding Wilson, and I’m high on him too, but I wouldn’t count Andre Brown out just yet. However, Wilson should be much more active in the passing game whereas Brown is more likely to just poach touchdowns.
Mark Ingram is probably a terrible pick in a PPR draft considering that he will probably have less than 15 catches with Darren Sproles in the picture. However, Ingram’s role is getting larger overall so he should be in line for more yards and touchdowns.
Lastly, I’ll probably draft Denard Robinson as much as I can in any league. Outside of the disappointing Justin Blackmon the Jaguars don’t have much in the way of playmakers so he should eventually carve out a decent role. Though he is listed as a running back I expect him to contribute more in the passing game.
On my eventual Fantasy Football Draft Guide Dez Bryant is my number two receiver, Green my third, but it really is a tossup. Green could get more targets, but with Bryant’s role increasing in Dallas he could trump Green in that category. Regardless, the two are going to be studs.
Colston is a pretty boring option, but he is a consistent 80 catches, 1000 yards, and eight touchdown lock.
I have no idea why I drafted Tavon Austin, but he could have a Wes Welker type role. With that being said in PPR I’d still probably draft Steve Smith over him, which I didn’t. Also, though I am a big fan of Danario Alexander he may only have 60-70 catches in him.
Steve Johnson has been one of the most consistent receivers in the past few years, but there are questions marks at quarterback. He may not have as big as role considering I expect Spiller, and the running game to take the stage this year. I probably won’t draft him, but the tenth round is pretty decent value.
Lastly, Denarius Moore, as I have stated in my other mock drafts listed below, and his listing as one of my favorite sleepers, I think he is going to have a big year.
TE: Vernon Davis
Aside from Aaron Hernandez, Vernon Davis is the only top ten tight end I will go far. Davis is in a great situation with Michael Crabtree out of the picture, and even though he and Kaepernick seemed to lack chemistry last year there should be more focus on getting him the ball.
Despite losing a few key pieces, or about half of their defense actually, the Ravens still have some playmakers to go along with Elvis Dumervil.
