Our latest 12-team standard mock draft for 2011

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

The lockout is getting close to an end, which means your work is at the beginning. As Fantasy Football owners know, Draft Day is almost here, and it looks like we might remain on schedule with the start of the season.

We've already done one Fantasy Football mock draft following the NFL Draft, and you can check out the results as well as read critiques on each team.

For this latest mock draft, we've kept the same owners but changed the order of selection as well as the format. It's still a 12-team standard league, but the starting lineup is different.

Keep in mind that free agency has yet to begin, and that won't happen until the lockout is officially over. Once that happens and players finally change teams, this mock draft can look dramatically different. But again, our goal is to help you get ready for your Draft Day, and this is a good indication of how a standard Fantasy Football draft might look.

As always, we ask you to follow along. If there's a draft pick you like or feel was too early, send us an email to dmfantasyfootball@cbs.com. Put "Mock Draft" in the subject line and share your thoughts on the draft.

In this league, all touchdowns are worth six points, and we award one point for every 10 yards rushing and receiving and one point for every 25 yards passing. We feature a starting lineup of QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, K and DST. There will also be five reserve spots for a 14-round draft. This draft reflects the roster requirements and scoring for our CBSSports.com free Fantasy Football game.

Our draft order is as follows:

1. Jeff Lippman, Fantasy Writer
2. Peter Madden, Editorial Director, Fantasy Sports
3. Sergio Gonzalez, Fantasy Writer
4. Kevin Goodwin, Fantasy Writer
5. Al Melchior, Data Analyst

6.06 Mark Ingram 13.07 Greg Little
7.07 Braylon Edwards 14.06 Nate Kaeding
Adam Aizer's draft review: In a three-receiver league, I knew my first two picks would be receivers, and I'm very happy with Johnson and Nicks. I am weak at my No. 3 receiver spot unfortunately. I sacrificed my third receiver and tight end for running back depth, which I now regret with only two running backs starting in this league. My quarterback strategy paid off. I took the No. 8 quarterback off the board and was able to land Schaub -- 26 picks after Philip Rivers was taken. Overall, I like my team and would love it if I were able to trade a running back for a better receiver.

6.08 Felix Jones 13.05 Saints DST
7.05 Johnny Knox 14.08 Josh Brown
Al Melchior's draft review: Round 3 was a critical point in the draft for me. With Drew Brees, Tom Brady and Rivers going off the board within the four picks just before mine, I was tempted to go after a quarterback, even though I would risk winding up on the wrong side of either a running back or wide receiver dropoff. I went ahead and took Jackson. Facing a similar dilemma in Round 4, I opted for Moreno. This ensured that I would get two receivers who could wind up in the Top 15 and two running backs who are likely to finish among the Top 20. In Round 5, I finally got my quarterback with Romo. He was actually the first quarterback to be taken after Rivers was drafted back in Round 3, so the wait paid off.

5.10 Matt Ryan 12.03 Ben Tate
6.03 Jahvid Best 13.10 Mike Sims-Walker
7.10 Owen Daniels 14.03 Stephen Gostkowski
Bill Passonno's draft review: With this league emphasizing wide receivers, I wanted to draft three premier options by the fourth round since there would be 18 other picks in between my fourth and fifth selections. White should continue to produce solid numbers despite Julio Jones' presence, and he is a red-zone favorite of Ryan. I also paired them together later in the draft. I was hoping Greg Jennings would slip to me in the second, but I'll certainly "settle" for Fitzgerald and his four consecutive 90-catch seasons. With plenty of top candidates to assume my No. 3 receiver slot, including Miles Austin, Marques Colston, Vincent Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, I could swipe one of the last remaining top running backs in the third round and have my choice of strong receivers in the fourth (Colston). I'm banking on a rebound from injury with the Owen Daniels pick, but I like him in the seventh round after the elite tight end options were gone.

1.09 Michael Vick 8.04 Ryan Williams
2.04 Darren McFadden 9.09 Matthew Stafford

5.09 Sidney Rice 12.04 Marcedes Lewis
6.04 Ryan Grant 13.09 Eagles DST
7.09 Santana Moss 14.04 Neil Rackers
Dave Richard's draft review: Once again, I decided to experiment with taking Vick in the first round. I'm not usually a proponent of taking a quarterback in Round 1, but this year I'm not opposed to drafting Vick if we're talking 10th overall or later. Oddly enough, the player I got in Round 2, McFadden, was who I almost took in Round 1. That worked out, as did my first five selections to give me a nice starting group for my roster, though nearly all of them are risk-reward types. I attempted to reduce my risk at running back by picking up a ton of rushers, a standard practice for me. That always leaves me thin at receiver, but I always try to go strong on my starting wideouts so I don't feel the urge to replace them -- plus I could always deal a rusher for a receiver later. The Stafford pick was also a risk, especially with Vick as my starter, but I have such high hopes for him and the Lions' offense that I couldn't resist.

6.01 Daniel Thomas 13.12 Lions DST
7.12 Julio Jones 14.01 Matt Bryant
Jamey Eisenberg's draft review: Picking last in Round 1, my usual route is to draft two receivers with my first two picks. But after seeing Andre Johnson and White come off the board, I knew I had to pair someone else with Calvin Johnson because drafting Nicks at No. 13 is too high. I went with Rodgers, and this allowed me to pass on a backup quarterback in a 14-round draft. I'll gamble with the waiver wire to replace Rodgers when he's on a bye in Week 8. Running back is now a concern for me, but I took three players with immense upside in Stewart, Mathews and Daniel Thomas and capable reserves in Pierre Thomas, Tomlinson and a sleeper to remember in Redman. I have another sleeper at tight end in Graham, and my receiving core is solid but unspectacular with Johnson, Garcon, Jones and Bess. Another proven receiver would have made this team more complete.

5.06 Kenny Britt 12.07 Cowboys DST
6.07 Ben Roethlisberger 13.06 Colt McCoy
7.06 Fred Jackson 14.07 Garrett Hartley
John Garcia's draft review: Jones-Drew at No. 6 is always solid. Then everyone went crazy and overpaid a bit for receivers because it's a three-receiver league, so Gore fell to me in the second round, and he's too good in any format to pass up despite some injury concern. I finally joined the receiver party in the third and fourth rounds, snagging Marshall, who I feel is poised for a Top 5 finish at his position, and the always reliable Welker. I used my fifth pick on wildcard Britt, who has shown flashes of dominance early on though he comes with some baggage. After that, it was a matter of filling in starters to balance out the team in Roethlisberger, Fred Jackson and Winslow.

5.01 BenJarvus Green-Ellis 12.12 Ryan Fitzpatrick
6.12 Deion Branch 13.01 Bears DST
7.01 Jermichael Finley 14.12 Rob Bironas
Jeff Lippman's draft review: Having the first pick in the draft, the world was my oyster. Then again, I was limited by conventional wisdom. Thinking running back all the way, Tennessee's Chris Johnson seemed the no-brainer pick. From there, I rounded out my offense by going receiver/quarterback with Williams and Brees -- my thought being to take the best available player at each position. Once I was set with my top options at each position, all that was left was to round out my roster with proven entities I knew would touch the ball frequently.

1.04 Ray Rice 8.09 Marshawn Lynch

3.04 Philip Rivers 10.09 James Jones
4.09 Antonio Gates 11.04 Mike Goodson
5.04 DeAngelo Williams 12.09 Willis McGahee
6.09 Mario Manningham 13.04 Chargers DST
7.04 Steve Smith 14.09 David Buehler
Kevin Goodwin's draft review: With more receivers at Joe Flacco's disposal, the running game should see some more holes for Rice to ramble through in Baltimore. Not everyone likes getting a quarterback connection on their team, but I'm a huge fan of it. Getting Rivers and Gates should be a huge one-two punch this year -- barring any further issues with Gates' foot. It may come back to bite me, but I really like having these guys together. The one pick I gambled on is taking Amendola in Round 9. I think Amendola can develop into a solid Fantasy receiver, especially with Josh McDaniels calling plays. Hopefully he can channel some of that old New England offense for the Rams this year.

5.11 Dallas Clark 12.02 Ravens DST
6.02 Josh Freeman 13.11 Lee Evans
7.11 Joseph Addai 14.02 Mason Crosby
Michael Hurcomb's draft review: I don't really look at my draft position and think I need a certain strategy based on where I'm picking. It's always starts for me as a best-player available strategy, and I go from there. In this draft I was very fortunate to stock up on solid running backs and wide receivers early, allowing me to wait on quarterbacks. I then grabbed Freeman and Manning, which should set up nicely for me as a tandem in 2011.

5.02 Anquan Boldin 12.11 Kevin Kolb
6.11 Austin Collie 13.02 Patriots DST
7.02 Rob Gronkowski 14.11 Adam Vinatieri
Peter Madden's draft review: The first two picks were all about consistency. Peterson and Manning are as close to being sure bets as any other players at their respective positions. I probably reached for Collie, but if his head issues are behind him, that Manning-to-Collie combo could pay off huge. Gronkowski could easily reach double digits in touchdowns again. He could finish the year as an elite tight end. Spiller has to show something in Year Two, right? I don't see how Buffalo doesn't take further advantage of his skills and get him more involved. Low-risk, high-reward pick for sure.

1.03 Arian Foster 8.10 Brandon Jacobs
2.10 Steven Jackson 9.03 Steve Smith
3.03 Tom Brady 10.10 Matt Cassel
4.10 Jeremy Maclin 11.03 Beanie Wells
5.03 Steve Johnson 12.10 Chris Cooley
6.10 Jason Witten 13.03 Giants DST
7.03 Michael Crabtree 14.10 Robbie Gould
Sergio Gonzalez's draft review: I went with two backs in the first two rounds that figure to dominate carries on their respective teams in Foster and Steven Jackson, a strategy that I try to employ where possible. Foster was a no-brainer at No. 3 overall, but I was somewhat surprised to see Jackson, who can get 20-plus touches per game regularly, available late in the second round. Fantasy owners should take note of his draft value this offseason. He does have a lot of carries on him but will be just 28 this season. He should have at least one more big year in him. After going with Brady in Round 3, I conditioned myself to have to speculate some at receiver in a three-receiver league. I'll be banking on young receivers on the rise as a result in Maclin, Steve Johnson and Crabtree, rather than established veterans who are more likely to decline than they are to out-produce their draft value. I got good value with Witten in Round 6, especially given my possible shortcomings at receiver. The late rounds were spent adding some insurance with a bit of a low/risk, possible high/reward gamble on Steve Smith of the Giants in Round 9.

5.08 Percy Harvin 12.05 Packers DST
6.05 Vernon Davis 13.08 Lance Moore
7.08 Joe Flacco 14.05 Sebastian Janikowski
Scott White's draft review: In leagues that require the use of three wide receivers instead of two, the whole game plan changes for me. It's not just a matter of drafting an extra receiver, but drafting reliable enough receivers to avoid creating holes at a position I know will be depleted. With Andre Johnson already off the board, I went the usual running back route in Round 1 and planned to go wide receiver with my next two picks. But when Mendenhall fell to me in Round 3, I couldn't afford to pass him up. It turned out OK, I think. Lloyd and Harvin aren't necessarily reliable, but both, along with backups Green and Clayton, have enough upside that I should be able to find two stable options between them. Of course, the emphasis on wide receiver forced me to sacrifice at quarterback, but I like the upside of Flacco and Bradford enough that I'm happy mixing and matching with them all year.
