2012 Draft Prep: Our 12-team, PPR mock draft

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

I was nearly having the perfect draft. It was all coming together so nicely heading into Round 6 in this 12-team PPR mock.

Picking at No. 3 overall, it started out with two stud running backs in LeSean McCoy and Trent Richardson, two receivers with a ton of upside in A.J. Green and Dez Bryant and a bounce back quarterback in Michael Vick. I couldn't be happier. And then it happened.

Falling in Round 6 was Antonio Gates, and he was two picks away. Mike Freeman was desperate for running backs, and Aleese Kopf was already set with Aaron Hernandez. It appeared as if Gates was mine. But Freeman, to his credit, didn't panic and took Gates. I settled for Torrey Smith, but my perfect team was tarnished. Still, it rounded out nicely and hopefully will be competitive.

In a PPR league where you get one point per reception, the advantage is getting running backs and receivers who catch the ball more than their peers. Darren Sproles is more valuable in this format then Michael Turner, for example. The same goes for Wes Welker compared to Greg Jennings.

You can see some of the other decisions these owners made, like when to draft Adrian Peterson, Matt Ryan vs. Peyton Manning or Denarius Moore vs. Randy Moss. All of these questions will be answered in this mock draft, including many others. You should use it as an early guide on what to expect heading into training camp.

As always, we ask you to share your thoughts on this draft. Take advantage of our Fantasy Football Twitter feed (@CBSFantasyFB) and post your comments there, or share your thoughts on our Fantasy Football Facebook page.

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

Through three seasons, Peterson has 161 total tackles, 12 interceptions, 42 passes defensed and a pair of fumble recoveries. He also has four punt returns for a touchdown, all coming in his 2011 rookie year.

Most impressive of all, Peterson has not missed a game in his short career.

Coach: Stephen Hill 'healthy and confident' unlike last year
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Jets receivers coach Sanjay Lal notices a major difference with Stephen Hill as he enters his third year in the NFL.

"Healthy and confident," Lal told The Star-Ledger. "That’s the biggest thing. I think he’s believing, and believing in himself – and it’s starting to show."

Hill struggled with knee injuries, inconsistency and dropped passes his first two seasons.

"It’s been the injuries that have hindered it and kind of somewhat made it harder than it could have been," Lal said. "He’s taken the coaching the whole time. Now, he’s able to do it physically, so it’s just kind of coming together right now."

Hill has a chance to be the No. 2 receiver behind Eric Decker.

Colin Kaepernick: Michael Crabtree 'a step or two quicker'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"He’s a step or two quicker now," Kaepernick told CSNBayArea.com. "He has a burst out of his routes. He has burst when he catches the ball. (He) looks really good out there."

Crabtree missed the first 11 games last year due to a torn Achilles he suffered in May 2013. "Even at the end of last season, he wasn’t 100 percent," Kaepernick said. "And he was making plays for us. I’m excited to see what he’s going to do, now that he’s 100 percent."
