Fantasy Football Mock Draft Per Day (June 4th): 14 teams, No. 2 pick, Standard 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 14-team league with standard scoring and I have the No. 2 pick.

Here are my picks in today's mock draft:

1.02 - LeSean McCoy, RB, Philadelphia Eagles: With the second pick, it's a win-win situation of taking whichever guy of McCoy or Jamaal Charles did not go first overall. No running back had more touches (366), rushing yards (1,607) or yards from scrimmage (2,146) last season than McCoy. Not a bad consolation prize.

2.13 - Andre Ellington, RB, Arizona Cardinals: If you listen to Bruce Arians, it may be Ellington, not McCoy, that leads the league in touches in 2014. While only one player in the history of the NFL has ever averaged 30-plus touches (and that was 30 years ago), the bigger point is Ellington has RB1 potential with the expected bump in workload.

3.02 - Jordy Nelson, WR, Green Bay Packers: Even though he missed four games in 2012, Nelson has averaged 67 receptions, 1,107 yards and 10 touchdowns over the past three seasons. Even with Aaron Rodgers missing a significant portion of the season, he set career highs of 85 receptions and 1,314 yards last season.

4.13 - Roddy White, WR, Atlanta Falcons: Compared to his ADP of WR22 (via Fantasy Football Calculator), I'm much higher than most on White, who's my 13th-ranked fantasy wide receiver.

5.02 - Matthew Stafford, QB, Detroit Lions: Between this pick and 6.13, all of my top 12 fantasy quarterbacks were selected. Stafford has one 5,000-yard season under his belt and has the best group of weapons he's ever had this season.

6.13 - Mike Wallace, WR, Miami Dolphins: Wallace is coming off back-to-back disappointing seasons as he set a career low in yards per reception (12.7) and touchdowns (five) last year. That said, his outlook is looking up. In Bill Lazor's up-tempo offense, the Dolphins will move Wallace around and make a more concerted effort to get him the ball.

7.02 - Dennis Pitta, TE, Baltimore Ravens: Many expected a breakout season from Pitta last year, but a hip injury in July that nearly wiped out his whole season dashed those hopes. A year later than anticipated, Pitta could be in store for his breakout campaign in 2014.

8.13 - Lamar Miller, RB, Miami Dolphins: With Knowshon Moreno failing to impress with his conditioning, it's Miller, not Moreno, that has worked with the ones at the team's OTAs. Of course, there is plenty of time for Moreno to improve his conditioning, but Miller has some upside after last season's disappointment.

9.02 - Khiry Robinson, RB, New Orleans Saints: Compared to HOFer Curtis Martin by HOF coach Bill Pacells, Robinson should have a breakout campaign in 2014. His upside is limited a bit by the team's three-headed approach, but Robinson has been going more than a round earlier based on his ADP of 7.10 (in 14-team leagues).

10.13 - Anquan Boldin, WR, San Francisco 49ers: Boldin posted his first 1,000-yard season in four years, but it's highly unlikely he repeats his 85/1139/7 line if Michael Crabtree stays healthy for a full season.

11.02 - Devonta Freeman, RB, Atlanta Falcons: There's a lot of mileage (2,552 career carries) on Steven Jackson's soon-to-be 31-year-old tires. Even if S-Jax doesn't miss time, Freeman should carve out a fairly sizable role within the offense as a rookie.

12.13 - Greg Jennings, WR, Minnesota Vikings: Jennings had a 68/804/4 stat line in his season with the Vikings, but I expect better numbers from him in 2014 in Norv Turner's offense and likely with a new quarterback.

13.02 - Tavon Austin, WR, St. Louis Rams: Even though the Rams traded up for Austin, he was less involved in the offense than many had expected he'd be. Coach Fisher has said the Rams will "do a better job of using him now that we know what he’s capable of doing."

14.13 - Cleveland Browns D/ST: As usual, it's my top-ranked defense in the second-to-last round ...

15.02 - Matt Bryant, K, Atlanta Falcons: ... and my top-ranked kicker in the final round.
