2013 Fantasy Football Mock Draft (PPR Scoring)
 
Scoring: This mock draft is based on leagues that use point-per-reception (PPR) scoring.  Passing
touchdowns are worth four points while rushing and receiving touchdowns are worth six points.  In addition,
one point is earned per 25 passing yards, 10 rushing yards and 10 receiving yards and one point per
reception.

Pick (Overall)
Contributor (Team)
Player, Position, Team
1 (1).
Kevin Hanson (Team 1)
Adrian Peterson, RB, Minnesota Vikings
Less than one year removed from a torn ACL, Peterson, the league's Most Valuable Player, nearly set the NFL
single-season rushing record with the second-highest output of all-time (2,097 yards).  In fact, almost 1,600
of those yards and 10 touchdowns came in the final 10 games of the season.  It's scary to imagine how good
he will be when he's 100 percent.  Regardless of scoring format, AD is the slam-dunk choice for No. 1 pick.
     
2 (2).
Sean Beazley (Team 1)
Arian Foster, RB, Houston Texans
Although Foster rushed for 1,424 yards, that was a moderate disappointment.  Leading the league in carries
(351), Foster finished sixth in the league in rushing and averaged a career-low 4.1 yards per carry.  That said,
he rushed for a season-high 15 scores.  A workhorse back, Foster has been relatively durable despite the
workload and now has three straight seasons of 1,200-plus yards and double-digit touchdowns.
     
3 (3).
Dan Yanotchko (Team 1)
Ray Rice, RB, Baltimore Ravens
Over the past three seasons, only Darren Sproles (220) has more receptions than Rice (200).  The only
player with more yards from scrimmage than Rice (5,465) during that span was Foster (5,702).  Along with
Peterson (5,062), only three backs have 5,000-plus YFS in the past three years.
     
4 (4).
Brendan Donahue (Team 1)
Doug Martin, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Rookie running backs (in addition to quarterbacks) had a ton of success in 2012.  While Alfred Morris ranked
second in the league in rushing, it was Doug Martin that ranked second in YFS.  Only Peterson (2,314) had
more than rushing and receiving yards than The Muscle Hamster (1,926).

5 (5).
Brendan Donahue (Team 2)
Calvin Johnson, WR, Detroit Lions
There are plenty of talented young receivers in the league, but Megatron is in a tier by himself.  When you're
the guy that breaks Jerry Rice's records, nothing else needs to be said.
     
6 (6).
Dan Yanotchko (Team 2)
LeSean McCoy, RB, Philadelphia Eagles
The 2012 season was a huge disappointment for McCoy (and the Eagles as well).  Following a monster
season of 1,309 rushing yards and a league-high 17 rushing touchdowns in 2011, McCoy set a career low
with two rushing scores and missed four games due to a concussion last year.

As the team begins the Chip Kelly era, it will be interesting to see exactly how his offense translates to (and is
modified for) the NFL.  While I don't think we ever see 17 rushing touchdowns from McCoy again, he should
finish with 1,600 to 1,800 yards from scrimmage and around 60 receptions.
 
7 (7).
Kevin Hanson (Team 2)
C.J. Spiller, RB, Buffalo Bills
One of the league's most dangerous backs, Spiller had a breakout season as he set career highs with 1,244
rushing yards, 43 receptions, 459 receiving yards and eight total touchdowns.  Along with Peterson, Spiller
was the only running back to average at least six yards per carry last season (6.01).  Even though he ranked
22nd in rush attempts (207), Spiller ranked second in the league in runs of 20-plus yards (12) behind
Peterson.
 
8 (8).
Sean Beazley (Team 2)
Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers
If I could have any quarterback in fantasy, my preference would be Rodgers.  He's a lock to finish in the top
three in fantasy points among players at the position.  That said, I'd prefer to wait on quarterback, especially in
PPR leagues.

Despite the gaudy stats by some other quarterbacks, Rodgers has never thrown more than 552 pass
attempts, which is a career high he set last year.  That ranked tenth in the NFL last year.  Matthew Stafford
threw it almost 200 more times than Rodgers.  That said, ARod has an 84:14 touchdown-to-interception ratio
in the past two seasons combined.

9 (9).
Sean Beazley (Team 3)
Chris Johnson, RB, Tennessee Titans
Hmmm ... First of all, Sean is a Titans fan so perhaps he knows something I don't.  While I like the fact that
the Titans signed free-agent guard Andy Levitre and they may still draft a guard early in the 2013 NFL Draft,
they also signed Shonn Greene to
a three-year deal.  Coach Mike Munchak implied that Greene will steal
some touches away from CJ1K, though.  Had Sean went in a different direction, I believe he would have been
able to draft Johnson with pick 2.04 on the way back around.
 
10 (10).
Dan Yanotchko (Team 3)
Jamaal Charles, RB, Kansas City Chiefs
Charles ran for 1,509 yards on 285 carries, both of which were career highs, last season.  While I wouldn't
expect Charles to see a repeat of the 285 carries under Andy Reid, I do expect him to get more than the 35
receptions he had last year.  Overall, I wouldn't be surprised if he came close to the career high in YFS
(1,935) he set back in 2010.
     
11 (11).
Kevin Hanson (Team 3)
Trent Richardson, RB, Cleveland Browns
Had you told me there would be two 1,000-yard rookie running backs at the beginning of last season, I would
have thought for sure that T-Rich would be one of them.  He wasn't.  Part of the problem was health, however,
as Richardson dealt with injuries (ribs and knee) for much of the year.

While he fell short of 1,000 yards (950) and averaged only 3.6 yards per carry, he scored 12 total touchdowns
and was one of only seven backs with 50-plus receptions.  Provided he stays relatively healthy during his
sophomore campaign, he has a legitimate shot to be a top-five fantasy back in 2013.
     
12 (12).
Brendan Donahue (Team 3)
Marshawn Lynch, RB, Seattle Seahawks
I was hoping to take Lynch at pick 2.02, but Brendan beat me to the punch.  Not only does Lynch have
back-to-back seasons with 1,200-plus rushing yards and double-digit touchdowns, he set a career highs
with 1,590 rushing yards and 5.0 yards per carry last season.

While he's not a dynamic receiver out of the backfield, he has at least 21 receptions in all three seasons he
has spent in Seattle.  The
addition of a dynamic player like Percy Harvin to the offense should help take some
of the attention from defenses off Lynch.
