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.

Report: Geno Smith will start Week 1 barring injury
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:45 pm ET) As expected, the Jets will go with Geno Smith as their starting quarterback in the regular-season opener, reports ESPN.com. An injury is the only thing that would change the team's plans and enable Michael Vick to start, the website.

Smith will start his third preseason game Friday against the Giants. In the first two games, Smith went 14 of 19 for 131 yards with an interception while adding a rushing touchdown.


Alterraun Verner has a chance to play Saturday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:37 pm ET) Buccaneers cornerback Alterraun Verner took part in full team drills Tuesday, a significant step in his return from a tweaked hamstring. The team hopes he can play Saturday against the Dolphins but is more concerned with getting him ready for the Sept. 7 regular-season opener.

"It's definitely progressing," Verner told the team's website.


Report: Johnny Manziel struggled to call plays
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:26 pm ET) Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel struggled with calling plays and protection in Monday's game against the Redskins, reports NFL.com. Coming from a spread offense in college, Manziel has encountered a steep learning curve, the report said.

That was a factor in Cleveland picking Brian Hoyer as its Week 1 starter.


Buccaneers release Lavelle Hawkins
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:12 pm ET) The Buccaneers released receiver Lavelle Hawkins, who played in four games for the Chargers last season.

Odell Beckham sits out again
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:05 pm ET) Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham, still bothered by a sore hamstring, is missing his second straight day of practice, reports The Star-Ledger. He won't play Friday against the Jets.

Torrey Smith expects versatile role
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:56 am ET) Ravens receiver Torrey Smith "anticipates a versatile role that incorporates his ability to run deep routes as well as short to intermediate patterns," reports the Baltimore Sun. Smith is the all-time franchise leader with 37 grabs of 25-plus yards.

"It's always a little bit of everything," Smith said. "I think that even since I've been here it's not like they have been sending me on 'nine' routes every play. It's definitely built, as you can tell, timing-wise, and trying to get you the ball and let you work in space, which I love because I can get the ball quick. It's a lot of room, and I feel like I can trust my speed to create some big plays."


Sammy Watkins extremely limited in practice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:43 am ET) Bills receiver Sammy Watkins participated in warmup drills and stretching Wednesday, then watched team drills from the sideline, reports ESPN.com. Watkins is dealing with a rib injury, and his status for Saturday's game against the Buccaneers remains unclear.

Eagles cut David Fluellen
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:37 am ET) To make room for newly-acquired running back Kenjon Barner, the Eagles cut running back David Fluellen.

Ravens establishing themselves as run-first team
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:19 am ET) Under new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, the Ravens have a different mindset and plan to be a run-first team again, reports ESPN.com. The revamped offensive line has pushed defenders off the line, and running backs Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce "are lighter, and as a result, more explosive," the report said.

Baltimore leads the NFL with 194 rushing yards in the preseason, 69 more than any other team.


Cowboys still being cautious with Tony Romo
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:15 am ET) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo did not practice Wednesday as the team stays cautious with him, reports the Dallas Morning News. The team is sticking to its plan of not having Romo practice more than two consecutive days.

Romo, coming off back surgery, will play in the club's third preseason game Saturday at Miami.
