2012 Draft Prep: 10-team PPR mock draft

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

The fun of playing in 10-team leagues is every owner basically has an All-Star team. It's hard to walk away from your draft complaining about a bad roster. If that happens, you must have done something incredibly wrong.

We recently conducted a 10-team PPR mock draft, with the idea of adding the scoring change to make the league a little more difficult. We always recommend adding new wrinkles to your league to make it more challenging.

In this draft, there were several things that stood out. Only one quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, was drafted in the first round, and also just one receiver went in Calvin Johnson, which is somewhat odd given the scoring system. Jimmy Graham was drafted at the end of Round 2, but Rob Gronkowski fell to Round 3.

Even with the scoring difference, there were still 17 running backs drafted in the first 30 picks and only seven receivers. Running back is the thinnest position for Fantasy owners this year while receiver is the deepest, which allows you to wait and still get talented players.

In a 10-team league, you can also take risks where you might not otherwise. You should also capitalize on great value. Some examples include Trent Richardson in Round 3, Adrian Peterson in Round 5 and Frank Gore in Round 7. Richardson dropped because we did this draft on the same day he had arthroscopic knee surgery, Peterson was still on the PUP list with his knee injury and Gore is someone many owners want to avoid -- unless the price is right.

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.

We also had a special guest join us for this draft as Jason Hagan -- a randomly-selected reader -- was chosen on Twitter to mock with us. This is something we plan to do going forward, so be on the lookout for your chance to draft with us.

Panthers sign QB Derek Anderson to contract extension
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1:04 pm ET) The Panthers reached a two-year contract extension with quarterback Derek Anderson, the team announced Wednesday.

"I’m excited about this for my family. To be here with the players, coaches and management we have – everything is top notch," Anderson said. "It was a no-brainer for me."

Anderson will backup Cam Newton. He was slated to become a free agent after the 2015 season.


Report: Bills RB LeSean McCoy may not be ready for Week 1
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:36 pm ET) While Bills coach Rex Ryan recently said he was optimistic running back LeSean McCoy would be ready for the regular season opener, a source indicated to ESPN that McCoy's status for Week 1 is in jeopardy.

"Well we certainly expect him to be ready to go, I hope," Ryan said, per ESPN. "If not then the next man has to step up. Boobie [Dixon] got a lot of reps out there today. Bryce Brown got a lot of reps [Wednesday]. So we will see. I am not going to put that all on one man. If he is not ready to go, he won't be in there."

McCoy has not been able to play during the preseason after he suffered a hamstring injury at practice. He has been able to conduct some light footwork, agility and cardio drills, but his conditioning needs work.

"It's way too early to say whether [McCoy] will play or not. He is doing a little bit more every day. But hell yes, I'm concerned about that," the source said. "I can't say for sure he's going to be with us Week 1. I can't say that at all. It will take everything we got just to get him ready for game day, and then we get to game day [there's] no way he can be in great football shape. So I think he will be on a pitch count, I think at the very best."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Report: Colts DT Arthur Jones needs ankle surgery
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Jones could be placed on the injured reserve/designated to return list. Jones produced 23 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks in nine games last season.

Report: Saints CB Keenan Lewis underwent hip surgery
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Seahawks RB Robert Turbin sidelined with sprained ankle
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2015) Seahawks backup running back Robert Turbin sustained an ankle injury Saturday against the Chargers, which might keep him out for a while, coach Pete Carroll revealed Tuesday. 

“Robert’s got a sprained ankle,” Carroll said, per SeattlePI.com. “It’s a significant ankle sprain. We have to see what that means. He feels pretty good about it, but it definitely showed up on the MRI and all that.”
