Early 2013 Fantasy Football Mock Draft (Dynasty) /fantasy-football-content/mock-drafts/early-2013-fantasy-football-mock-draft/ /fantasy-football-content/mock-drafts/early-2013-fantasy-football-mock-draft/#comments Mon, 31 Dec 2012 06:51:27 +0000 Smitty /?p=6628 Below you will find an extremely early 2013 Fantasy Football Mock Draft (Dynasty), which consisted of myself and a grip of some of our most knowledgable forum moderators and users here at DraftCalc.

This was a dynasty-based mock draft, which means that everyone drafting was doing so as if we would be keeping these players for the long-term. The scoring was based off of a standard PPR scoring format.

Be sure to comment below on some of the selections. Were some picks too high, were some too low? Mark down your opinion below!

Round One

1.01 – Wutthecrapman – Doug Martin, RB, TB
1.02 – greatprodigy – Ray Rice, RB, BAL
1.03 – fontaines – Calvin Johnson, WR, DET
1.04 – branch0095 – Trent Richardson, RB, CLE
1.05 – garyzab – AJ Green, WR, CIN
1.06 – bddavidson – Adrian Peterson, RB, MIN
1.07 – LukeB5301 – CJ Spiller, RB, BUF
1.08 – Smitty – Robert Griffin III, QB, WAS
1.09 – footballjunkie – Arian Foster, RB, HOU
1.10 – JRMRRT – Lesean McCoy, RB, PHI
1.11 – thedude – Jamaal Charles, RB, KC
1.12 – Mile_High_Man – Aaron Rogers, QB, GB

Smitty’s Take: There were a couple surprises in this first-round, as Doug Martin went at 1.01 and C.J. Spiller was grabbed at 1.07. While both runners were grabbed a touch high by projected Average Draft Position (ADP) standards, it’s quite possible that their 2013 fantasy football ADPs could reach those levels… anything is possible. And, really, to be fair, any ADP data you look at right now is almost too raw at this point… You won’t find too many higher on Spiller than myself, and Martin is already a safe first-round pick, it’s just a matter of how high one should take him. Probably the most interesting value was Adrian Peterson going at 1.09. Yes, he will be 28 come the start of 2013, but the physical freak-of-a-runner is probably the best bet ever when it comes to a runner playing past that dreaded running back age of 30. As for A.J. Green at 1.05, Jamaal Charles at 1.11, Aaron Rodgers at 1.12, all that seems about right to me. And while I probably wouldn’t repeat my “QB in the first-round” strategy again, as I just don’t like how it leaves one’s running back stable, I love the value of Robert Griffin III at the 1.08 spot. If you’re in a draft where wide receivers are the position mostly flying off the board in the 2nd- and 3rd-rounds, well, that’s where RG3 in the first makes the most sense. RG3 might arguably be the No. 1 overall fantasy scorer in 2013 – That makes him, value-wise, a steal anywhere near that 1.08 range.

Round Two

2.01 – Mile_High_Man – Julio Jones, WR, ATL
2.02 – thedude – Jimmy Graham, TE, NO
2.03 – JRMRRT – DeMarco Murray, RB, DAL
2.04 – footballjunkie – Cam Newton, QB, CAR
2.05 – Smitty – Matt Forte, RB, CHI
2.06 – LukeB5301 – Demaryius Thomas, WR, DEN
2.07 – bddavidson – Brandon Marshall, WR, CHI
2.08 – garyzab – Rob Gronkowski, TE, NE
2.09 – branch0095- Dez Bryant, WR, DAL
2.10 – fontaines – Andrew Luck, QB, IND
2.11 – greatprodigy – Marshawn Lynch, RB, SEA
2.12 – Wutthecrapman – Randall Cobb, WR, GB

Smitty’s Take: I love the Julio Jones grab at 2.01, even though it’s going to seem a bit high to some. The guy is a stud, and even though I love both A.J. Green and Calvin Johnson as next year’s neck-and-neck top two fantasy receivers, Julio is the one receiver below those two that could sneak in and beat out both as 2013′s top fantasy receiver. I think Jones will ultimately finish third, but my point is that he has the upside of any receiver taken in the first-round, so he is an amazing grab as anyone’s second-drafted player. I am really liking where Cam Newton is falling in all early 2013 mock drafts… the guy is back to form, yet many are still shy about making him their No. 1 drafted player – Great news for early second-round drafters in 2013! I think DeMarco Murray will be playing with a chip on his shoulder in 2013, and while he has to stay healthy, which is a big IF, I think he is a monster given where you will be able to get him in early 2013 fantasy drafts. I think 2.03 is decent-to-solid value, but my guess is his ADP will settle a bit lower than this come June, July and August, which is a positive thing for Murray believers. My Matt Forte selection at 2.05 has caused a bit of controversy on the forums here and there, but of all of the runners left at that point in the draft, only Marshawn Lynch and Alfred Morris seemed like worthy grabs over Forte. Looking back, I could have argued Lynch or Morris at that spot, no question, and that is especially the case for Morris after his 200-yard/3TD performance in Week 17… Still, given this draft took place before Morris’ Week 17 explosion, I still think that Forte has top 4-8 overall upside if healthy (yes, another big IF), and at this point in the fantasy football off-season, I’m willing to give Forte that kind of respect; he ended the 2013 regular season on a high note, rushing for 103 yards and a score. Early grabs, in my opinion, included: Andrew Luck at 2.10, Randall Cobb at 2.12 and Demaryius Thomas at 2.06. Are those bad selections because they feel a touch early? Absolutely not, it just comes down to draft value, and by June, July and August, all those players could have those kinds of ADPs, or higher. Right now, though, I will guess that they will not.

Round Three

3.01 – Wutthecrapman – David Wilson, RB, NYG
3.02 – greatprodigy – Percy Harvin, WR, MIN
3.03 – fontaines – Steven Ridley, RB, NE
3.04 – branch0095 – Alfred Morris, RB, WAS
3.05 – garyzab – Darren McFadden, RB, OAK
3.06 – bddavidson – Drew Brees, QB, NO
3.07 – LukeB5301 – Chris Johnson, RB, TEN
3.08 – Smitty – Victor Cruz, WR, NYG
3.09 – footballjunkie – Maurice Jones-Drew, RB, JAC
3.10 – JRMRRT – Tom Brady, QB, NE
3.11 – thedude – Cecil Shorts, WR, JAC
3.12 – Mile_High_Man – Ryan Mathews RB, SD

Smitty’s Take: As I mentioned above, I was strongly considering drafting Alfred Morris at the 2.05 selection, which makes Morris a steal 3.04. I honestly don’t see Morris falling this far in fresh dynasty start-up drafts come August, but even as a late second-round pick, Morris still has monster upside. While he seems deserving of the 3.03, for some reason I’m not able to trust Stevan Ridley – yet. That could change, and I have almost zero evidence to support my doubt… call it a gut instinct, but Ridley doesn’t feel like an extremely long-term answer in New England. I could be way off and admit that’s pure speculation and gut instinct. I love the value of Darren McFadden at 3.05, as all that injury risk attached to the runner is extremely minimized. He is a steal in the 3rd- and 4th-rounds, but because McFadden is such an injury risk, just don’t go drafting him on all of your 2013 fantasy teams. Putting all your eggs in one basket is never a wise idea. He may only have 2-3 years left, but why is Drew Brees (3.06) falling so far in early 2013 dynasty start-up mocks? Both he and Tom Brady (3.10) are bargains at this point in mocks, and I recommend scooping up either around these ranges if you can in any league and any format in 2013! While anything can happen, I’m not liking Ryan Mathews (3.12) anywhere near the 3rd- or 4th-round in 2013 – I just don’t trust him whatsoever.

Round Four

4.01 – Mile_High_Man – Hakeem Nicks, WR, NYG
4.02 – thedude – Russell Wilson, QB, SEA
4.03 – JRMRRT – Kenny Britt, WR, TEN
4.04 – footballjunkie – Larry Fitzgerald, WR, AZ
4.05 – Smitty – Andre Johnson, WR, HOU
4.06 – LukeB5301 – Aaron Hernandez, TE, NE
4.07 – bddavidson – Mike Wallace, WR, PIT
4.08 – garyzab – Vincent Jackson, WR, TB
4.09 – branch0095 – Michael Crabtree, WR, SF
4.10 – fontaines – Bryce Brown, RB, PHI
4.11 – greatprodigy – Peyton Manning, QB, DEN
4.12 – Wutthecrapman – Mathew Stafford, QB, DET

Smitty’s Take: I love the boldness in Russell Wilson at 4.02. Wilson was my No. 1 Bold Prediction for 2012, so clearly I’m liking his upside heading into 2013. Michael Crabtree feels a touch high at 4.09, but he has finished the 2012 regular season looking like a beast. I let someone else take him this high in 2013 fantasy football drafts, but I won’t argue that there isn’t a chance that he could earn 4th-round value. Bryce Brown is extremely high at 4.10, but honestly, as much as one may want to call that selection way too early, we’re one single LeSean McCoy hit away from seeing Brown start a string of games in 2013 and beyond. I wouldn’t recommend anyone take Brown this high, because you shouldn’t have to, which I believe will be proved once some solid dynasty ADP data emerges in the coming weeks and months… if someone else grabs Brown anywhere near this high, let them grab him and go after him in another league! That said, believing in Brown isn’t off-base, though. While I’m not expecting more than 1, maybe 2, elite seasons out of Andre Johnson, I think too many fantasy owners overlook aging fantasy players heading into fresh dynasty start-ups. You can draft for both the now and future when building a dynasty – AJ has a ton of value in this 4th-round range.

Round Five

5.01 – Wutthecrapman – Dwayne Bowe, WR, KC
5.02 – greatprodigy – Steve Johnson, WR, BUF
5.03 – fontaines – Matt Ryan, QB, ATL
5.04 – branch0095 – Danario Alexander, WR, SD
5.05 – garyzab – Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, ATL
5.06 – bddavidson – Ty Hilton, WR, IND
5.07 – LukeB5301 – Josh Gordon, WR, CLE
5.08 – Smitty – Wes Welker, WR, NE
5.09 – footballjunkie – Roddy White, WR, ATL
5.10 – JRMRRT – Miles Austin, WR, Dal
5.11 – thedude – BenJarvis Green-Ellis, RB, CIM
5.12 – Mile_High_Man – Mark Ingram, RB, NO

Smitty’s Take: Jacquizz Rodgers is an exciting prospect, but even I feel 5.05 might be a touch high.. This is a mock, and mocks are for making statements and toying with strategies and moves you may not ordinarily make in a real live draft. In time, I wouldn’t be shocked if Rodgers becomes a solid enough prospect to warrant 5th- or 6th-round dynasty start-up consideration, but not yet. I absolutely love the TY Hilton pick, and I would have snagged Hilton with my 5.08 had he not been drafted at 5.06. I think Hilton could turn out to be a fantasy WR1 as early as 2013, and he is one of my bigger middle-round breakout candidates heading into 2013! Great pick at 5.06! I think Wes Welker (5.08) is falling into a no risk/all reward territory in fresh dynasty start-ups!

Round Six

6.01 – Mile_High_Man – Eric Decker, WR, DEN
6.02 – thedude – Danny Amendola, WR, STL
6.03 – JRMRRT – Pierre Garcon, WR, WAS
6.04 – footballjunkie – Greg Jennings, WR, GB
6.05 – Smitty – Knowshon Moreno, RB, DEN
6.06 – LukeB5301 – Collin Kapernick, QB, SF
6.07 – bddavidson – Mikel Leshoure, RB, DET
6.08 – garyzab – Andy Dalton, QB, CIN
6.09 – branch0095 – Jermaine Gresham TE, CIN
6.10 – fontaines – Golden Tate, WR, SEA
6.11 – greatprodigy – Marques Colston, WR, NO
6.12 – WTCM – Torrey Smith, WR, BAL

Smitty’s Take: Greg Jennings at 6.04 is interesting, as I think he is being written off unfairly. He could still have 1-2 years left at that elite level, but because we don’t yet know where he will be playing in 2013, I can understand why many are shy about rostering him. Still, 6th-round value is solid. Nothing else really jumps out in this round. While I think Knowshon Moreno could earn his 6.05 selection that I invested, to be truthful, grabbing Moreno in the 6th-round in a dynasty start-up was more the result of taking a QB in the first-round rather than me making a statement about Moreno.


Again, mock drafts are for testing out strategies, and my conclusion coming out of this draft is that as much as I want to roster either Aaron Rodgers or Robert Griffin III in 2013, the running back depth just isn’t deep enough in 2013 (so far, and of course that can change)… If you want strong RB1 and RB2 options in 2013 dynasty start-up drafts, or even 2013 redraft leagues for that matter, my advice is to wait on your passer and grab a Russell Wilson or Matt Ryan later in your draft, or go semi-early and grab a Drew Brees or Tom Brady. You can certainly win grabbing a passer in the first-round, I’m not saying you can’t, and as I mentioned above, grabbing a QB in the first works if your league mates are all receiver happy in the 2nd- and 3rd-rounds… however, in general, I firmly believe the path to victory and the path to building a winning team is an easier path to travel if you wait on your passer.

Top 25 Dynasty Players Heading Into 2013 /fantasy-football-content/sleepers/top-25-dynasty-players-heading-into-2013/ /fantasy-football-content/sleepers/top-25-dynasty-players-heading-into-2013/#comments Wed, 26 Dec 2012 07:12:55 +0000 Smitty /?p=6357 It’s never too early to start preparing for the 2013 Fantasy Football Season.

Below I have ranked the Top 25 Overall Fantasy Football Players heading into the 2013 fantasy football season. Things will certainly change quickly this coming off-season, but again, if you ask us, draft preparation begins the moment Week 16 ends!

These rankings are based on a standard PPR scoring format.

Top 25 Overall Dynasty Players

1. Adrian Peterson | RB, MIN

What else can you say other than “freak” when describing Adrian Peterson. Running backs just don’t rebound to elite form when they tear their ACLs after the age of 23… they just don’t, unless of course the player’s name is either Adrian Peterson or Jamaal Charles. Ok, ACL injury aside… Even though runners usually fall off the face of the earth at the age of 30-31, Peterson is worth the 1.01 even if he absolutely only had two more elite seasons left. They guys is a freak, though, we’ve already established this, so it wouldn’t shock me if he played elite football past the dreaded age for running backs (30)… again, though, even if we assume that he does not last more than two years, simply two, that is a long time. Too many times fantasy owners get caught up on getting the youngest team known to man, and those teams often fight for second place every single season. Don’t get me wrong, it’s important to incorporate youth into your decision-making, but two years of AP is enough to build a fresh dynasty and enough to build a nice little championship trophy collection.

2. Robert Griffin III | QB, WAS

I figure that Robert Griffin III is going to be one of the players you see me calling out all off-season long. Each year I push a few players out in front before anyone is really ready to accept that player as a position leader (like having AJ Green as DraftCalc’s No. 1 fantasy football receiver through all of last off-season); RG3 is one of those players for me entering 2013. If he stays healthy, which is really the only risk I see with the elite passer, I wouldn’t be shocked one single bit if he led all fantasy scorers across all positions in 2013. I also wouldn’t be surprised if it wasn’t even close.

3. Ray Rice | RB, BAL

Ray Rice is a tough player to rank heading into 2013 and beyond. He has the talent and skill to be the No. 1 overall fantasy scorer year in and year out, however, his offense sometimes holds him back, as Rice can have those 30 and 40-yard rushing performances every once in a while. When it comes to Rice, there is very little risk or downside aside from the occasional inconsistency. He is a safe bet for 1,000-1,100 rushing yards, 500-600 receiving yards and about 10 total scores. That’s top 2-5 overall production right there, and he is only 25 (turning 26)!

4. A.J. Green | WR, CIN

I had A.J. Green ranked as DraftCalc’s No. 1 overall receiver throughout the entire 2012 off-season and preseason, and he was my No. 2 overall upside player in redraft formats and No. 1 overall in dynasty formats. It wasn’t a popular stance to have Green ahead of so many receivers, especially Calvin Johnson, but Green flat-out delivered flashes of being as good as any receiver in the league. He is arguably the league’s most exciting and up-and-coming receiving talent. Only Calvin Johnson and Julio Jones will likely give Green a run for his money at the wide receiver position in 2013.

5. Calvin Johnson | WR, DET

As I said above, it’s very arguable to have Calvin Johnson ranked as the league’s No. 1 fantasy receiver heading into 2013. He is a beast and has a grip of years left. And, despite Matthew Stafford’s somewhat disappointing 2012 season, one of the most attractive aspects of drafting Calvin is that his situation is solid; he has a very good passer under center, he plays in an offense that airs it out, and none of that is likely to change for years. That’s a recipe for consistency right there! You might be asking, what is the difference between Calvin and Green, though? And, why do I have Green below Calvin? I believe the answer to both questions will be touchdowns.

6. Arian Foster | RB, HOU

Arian Foster is absolutely one of my top 3-4 ranked rushers heading into 2013 and beyond. In fact, I could make an argument he is the No. 1 overall rusher in fantasy football, regardless of the format. So why is he ranked as the 3rd rusher off the board, and No. 6 overall player? Of course, it’s the irregular heartbeat that he scared us all with in Week 16 of the 2012 fantasy football season. All indications are that everything is back to normal, and his ability to play Week 17 is proof of that. So what is to fear? Well, the unknown. Nothing like this is ever truly revealed to the media and fantasy worlds the way it should be, so call our small bump-down from the No. 2 overall spot to the No. 6 a knee-jerk reaction, one we admit could rectify itself in the coming weeks and months… then again, the unknown reality of the situation may keep him hovering around that safer range… Stay tuned on that! Foster is capable of scoring 15-20TDs during any given campaign, he will only be 27 years old when the 2013 season begins, and his offense is not only productive, it’s built around him. Foster truly does still make a strong case to go No. 1 overall, and as crazy as it sounds, I’ve seen him go as low as the 8 range in early and fresh 2013 dynasty start-up drafts (and that was before the irregular heartbeat scare).

7. Jamaal Charles | RB, KC

Lots of upside, but Jamaal Charles comes with a grip of inconsistency, and plays in an offense that can sometimes take him completely out of a game. Despite this, I think Charles is one of the most explosive players in the NFL, probably second only to Adrian Peterson. That won’t likely change for a handful of years. Landing him later will certainly gives him all kinds of room to over-perform, but even if his ADP climbs this high by the July-August range of next year, Charles is worth the investment.

8. Aaron Rodgers | QB, GB

Aaron Rodgers didn’t really have the 2012 fantasy season most were hoping for. If you drafted Rodgers, you likely drafted him as the No. 1 overall passer, and in the 4-6 overall range… depending on your scoring format, he finished the 2012 fantasy season in that 3-5 range. All in all, it will be tough for fantasy owners to draft Rodgers any higher than this entering all 2013 fantasy football drafts. This is good news, because he has a chance to outshine his ADP if he gets taken in the lower-half of the first-round (or top of the second if you get lucky). If you’re already in a dynasty league, attempt to acquire Rodgers now while so many still feel he is no longer a lock to be a top 1-5 overall finisher.

9. Doug Martin | RB, TB

This ranking is probably a little low for most of the users on our fantasy football forums. In fact, I’ve seen Doug Martin go as high as No. 1 overall, like in this user-organized forum mock draft. While I don’t think he is deserving of the 1.01 (over players like Arian Foster and Adrian Peterson), top 5-8RB numbers aren’t out of the question for Martin in 2013 and beyond.

10. C.J. Spiller | RB, BUF

In mid-season mocks, and very early 2013 start-up drafts, I’ve seen C.J. Spiller go as high as the 5-8 range, yeah, I’m talking overall! Well, I think he is capable of being a top 3RB, so clearly I feel he can earn that top 5-6 overall value, but he shouldn’t be going that high until and if his ADP gets that high. Pay as low a price as you can. The value in landing Spiller in 2013 is getting him as at least a late first-round pick, or as your second-drafted player. If you take him as high as 5-6 overall, he HAS TO play elite football for you to earn your value back… He can, but the upside is minimized… I venture to say that his ADP won’t be near 5-6 come August, but time will tell. Again, he could earn top 5-6 fantasy points, or higher, but I don’t think you will have to pay that kind of price tag come actual draft day in August and September 2013.

11. Cam Newton | QB, CAR

While he did start out slow in 2012, and disappeared for a big chunk of the fantasy season, Cam Newton is clearly still the same stud he was during his rookie campaign. Since Week 10 of the 2012 fantasy football season, he dropped some serious fantasy points, with absolute monster games mixed in that timeframe. Newt might end up being one of the bigger steals in all 2013 fantasy football drafts, as many will still be a little cautious when it comes to making him their first-drafted player, and given Newt is capable of being a top 5 overall fantasy scorer, anything from this ranking down screams potential bargain.

12. Trent Richardson | RB, CLE

Like Doug Martin, this ranking might seem a touch too low to many of our forum users. In the same user-organized mock draft that I mentioned above, Trent Richardson went at 1.04. I think 1.04 isn’t crazy thinking, however, I think T-Rich reaches that kind of production once/if that Cleveland passing attack matures a bit more, and while I love Josh Gordon’s future in the NFL, I am not a big believer in Brandon Weeden. Drafting Richardson in the 1.07-1.13 range seems about right to me, because I think he can safely earn that kind of value even in a struggling Cleveland offense, and it allows him room to truly over-perform.

13. Julio Jones | WR, ATL

While most won’t reach too high for him in 2013, as there are just too many big name players to draft ahead of him, Julio Jones is most likely going to command this kind of respect come August 2013. The great news is that he could finish as a top 1-3 fantasy wide receiver, he has that much upside and skill.

14. LeSean McCoy | RB, PHI

Concussion issues, coupled with the emergence of Bryce Brown, will almost certainly turn LeSean McCoy into a nice value grab in most all 2013 fantasy football drafts. Could he bust? Is there risk? Absolutely, but anywhere near 2nd-round value, I say take the chance and hope you still have a top 5 overall player. He still has that upside despite some new-found risk. If you draft McCoy in 2013, though, be certain to snag Brown as well! Be certain to!

15. Drew Brees | QB, NO

Again, I say this a lot, 2-3 years is a long time, even in dynasty. Drew Brees still has at least 2 years left as a stud and potential top 1-3 fantasy QB. Don’t overlook Brees because another quarterback is in his early 20s. Some dynasty leagues crumble before 2-3 years is up, and some young QBs could still decline at the same time Brees ends up declining, even with the age difference. Don’t plan too far in advance or you will always be playing for second place.

16. Dez Bryant | WR, DAL

Dez Bryant, who I might add was on my Top 10 Upside Board for 2012, could be drafted higher than this come August 2013. I’m one of his biggest supporters, but you always want to target players that can extremely outperform their draft values, and Dez had that upside in a major way last year. This is a good spot for him here, in the 15-18 overall range… if his ADP climbs any higher than this, you may want to take a safer option instead of Dez in 2013, as the top 15 is loaded this upcoming season… then you can just look for the next Dez in the 4th- and 5th-rounds, and believe me, we called Dez last year, we have this year’s version of Dez emerging – wait for this year’s Top 10 Upside Board updates.

17. Matt Forte | RB, CHI

Tons of upside as a 18-24 overall pick, and that’s likely where Matt Forte will fall in 2013 fantasy football drafts. There is a ton of risk here, as he just can’t seem to stay healthy, but as a second-drafted player, and almost a third-round pick, the risk is minimized quite a bit.

18. Brandon Marshall | WR, CHI

You always worry about his off-the-field behavior, but we warned fantasy worlds about Brandon Marshall’s 2012 explosion. All he needed was a productive passing offense. He has one, along with a good supporting defense. Marshall should continue his stellar play in 2013 and beyond.

19. DeMarco Murray | RB, DAL

There is a lot of risk in drafting DeMarco Murray entering 2013, but if you can get him in that 18-24 range, you are minimizing the risk significantly. If relatively healthy, Murray could really crank out top 5-8RB numbers. If completely healthy, it’s scary to think where this kid could finish. Why are we slotting him near the end of the second-round then? Well, because it’s also somewhat scary imagining him finishing as a top 5RB. Confusing? You bet, that’s why he is slotted right here!

20. Darren McFadden | RB, OAK

Same thing that was just said about DeMarco Murray applies here; McFadden has all kinds of risks, but at this value, he is worth a grab, no question. Are there safer options at this point? Yes, but no other player around this range has the upside McFadden has. If you can land McFadden later, absolutely try, though!

21. Andrew Luck | QB, IND

It’s very arguable to slot Andrew Luck higher than this, but it just boils down to strategy and how one likes to build their dynasty rosters. Luck will likely get to that Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers level, but it may take another year of playing to get there. This is a good spot if you ask me.

22. Marshawn Lynch | RB, SEA

I admit, my initial thinking was to keep Marshawn Lynch outside of the top 25, but Lynch will only be 27 entering next season – He still has 2-3 elite years left in an exciting and improving offense. Lynch had a phenomenal 2012 campaign, rushing for 1490 yards and scoring 12 total TDs. Expect more of the same in 2013 as Russell Wilson, our No. 1 Bold Prediction of all 2012, leads this team in the right direction.

23. Alfred Morris | RB, WAS

This was a tough spot to slot Alfred Morris, as one has to worry about any running back lasting long in a Mike Shanahan system. That said, Shanny hasn’t had a player like Morris for quite some time. Morris looks like the real deal, and we could be looking at a top 8-12 fantasy rusher for years and years to come — That makes this ranking a relatively-safe one.

24. Jimmy Graham | TE, NO

Jimmy Graham has had big droughts throughout the entire 2012 fantasy football season, but he played through a wrist injury. After a successful off-season surgery, I imagine Graham will be back to form in 2013. He could fall a lot further than this, but we shall see how the ADP data looks come August 2013. If Graham somehow starts falling into the 3rd-round in 2013 fantasy football drafts, he could turn out to be one of the bigger steals this next upcoming fantasy football season.

25. Rob Gronkowski | TE, NE

Everything I just said about Jimmy Graham applies here as well, as Rob Gronkowski, like Graham, has battled injuries in a major way this season. Before getting hurt in Week 11, Gronko averaged a TD per game on his 10 played games. Amazing.

Just Missed The Cut

It was tough not including players like Russell Wilson (who we called our No. 1 Bold Prediction for 2012), Marshawn Lynch, Chris Johnson, Stevan Ridley, Hakeem Nicks, Larry Fitzgerald, Demaryius Thomas, David Wilson, Matt Ryan,, Victor Cruz. I think Larry Fitzgerald jumps right into the top 12-15 overall if the Cardinals properly address their quarterback situation this off-season.

Let’s get to it!

Week 16 Start Bench Advice

fantasy football start bench advice

Week 16 is always a tough week to toss out all kinds of bold predictions, as many times studs are the ones that sit early, and it’s just way to hard to “bank on” players playing full contests if their team gets out to an early lead. The best advice I can give fantasy owners entering Week 16 is to stick with the players that got you here, and don’t get too creative and sit a player that has helped you reach Week 16, I don’t care if that player struggled last week (examples: Ray Rice, Jamaal Charles, etc) — Start your studs and don’t get too crafty!

With that said, here are my top few not-so-obvious predictions for Week 16. These players/projections below wouldn’t necessarily end up being my top projected players for the week (ex: I have both Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles rushing for over 150 yards and at least 1-2TDs); however, someone like C.J. Spiller (see below) could probably crack my top three at his position if this wasn’t just the “not-so-obvious” list.

Note: These projections are unrelated to the projections below, which are created by JRMRRT.


Andrew Luck (@KC): 300 yards, 3TDs, 1INT

Philip Rivers (@NYJ): 285 yards, 3TDs, 0INTs

Running Backs

C.J. Spiller (@MIA): 155 rushing yards, 4 rec for 40 yards and 2TDs

Demarco Murray (vs. Saints): 110 rushing yards, 4 rec for 40 yards, 2TDs

Mark Ingram (@DAL): 90 rushing yards, 2 rec 12 yards, 1TD

Receivers/Tight Ends

TY Hilton (@KC): 6 rec for 110 yards and 1TD

Randall Cobb (vs. Titans): 6 rec for 90 yards and 1TD, and 20 rush yards

Antonio Brown (vs. Bengals): 5 rec for 99 yards and 1TD
