2012 Draft Prep: 12-team PPR mock draft

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

The biggest difference in PPR leagues from standard formats might be when quarterbacks are drafted. With the additional value given to running backs and receivers, quarterbacks tend to fall on Draft Day.

That happened in this draft. Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Drew Brees went in Round 1 as expected, but Matthew Stafford and Cam Newton fell to Round 3. Now, that likely won't happen in most leagues, but you shouldn't reach for a quarterback in this format even with six points for passing touchdowns.

In most standard leagues, quarterbacks are the highest-scoring players. Last year, 18 of the Top 30 players in a standard league were quarterbacks based on total Fantasy points. But in a PPR league, that number was reduced to just 14 quarterbacks.

You can afford to wait on quarterbacks in this format, and in this league 15 running backs, seven receivers and two tight ends were drafted before Stafford at No. 28 overall (I took Newton two picks later at No. 30). The next quarterback after that wasn't drafted until No. 59 overall with Matt Ryan and Michael Vick went one pick later.

Another difference is when the better receiving options are drafted. For example, in this league Jimmy Graham went in Round 1 at No. 12 overall. Darren Sproles was drafted at No. 14 overall in Round 2 ahead of Steven Jackson, Ryan Mathews and Trent Richardson. And Wes Welker was the No. 3 receiver drafted ahead of Andre Johnson and Julio Jones. Roddy White also went ahead of Jones.

I like the Graham pick, but Sproles went too soon. Welker is worth the risk there, but I'd still draft him after Johnson and Jones even in this format. There were some other interesting picks, which you can see here.

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.

Hard to pin Josh Gordon's struggles on him
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6:19 pm ET) Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon hasn't been nearly the dynamic playmaker we expected since his return from suspension, as he put together yet another subpar performance in Week 16 against the Panthers.

Gordon had four receptions on seven targets to finish second on the team with 45 yards, but continues to disappoint Fantasy owners. Gordon, who was arguably the top receiver in the league a year ago, has just one 100-yard effort in five games, and has yet to find the end zone. Of course, it's not all Gordon's fault, as the Browns' quarterbacks have thrown just one touchdown in that time, compared to 10 interceptions.

Gordon made the most out of a bad quarterback situation last season too, but at some point, it is just too much to overcome. The Browns' quarterbacks have just 12 touchdowns to 15 interceptions on the season, production they almost have to improve on next season.

Gordon's upside remains tremendous, but it's awfully tough to rely on him heading into Week 17 against the Ravens. Owners in long-term Dynasty and keeper leagues shouldn't let five bad games with zero help from the quarterbacks dictate how they view him, however. 


Steelers' Antonio Brown surpasses 1,500 yards receiving in win
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:17 pm ET) Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown had seven catches for 72 yards and a touchdown in Pittsburgh's 20-12 win over Kansas City. 

With his first catch of the game, Brown crossed 1,500 receiving yards on the season, breaking his own Pittsburgh record he set in 2013 for most receiving yards in a season. 

Brown now also has 122 catches on the season, tying him for fourth all-time in a single season. He needs two catches in Week 17 to take over second place from Herman Moore (1995) and Wes Welker (2009).

He will get his chance next week against the Bengals. 


Saints TE Jimmy Graham registered another 10-TD season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6:17 pm ET) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham become the first player in franchise history with three seasons of three-plus touchdowns during Sunday's loss to Atlanta.

Graham came down with a 4-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees in the fourth quarter. He was targeted 10 times and finished with six catches for 53 yards and a score in a 30-14 defeat. He moved into second place in franchise history with 51 career touchdown receptions.

New Orleans will face Tampa Bay in Week 17.


Texans QB Case Keenum earns win in first start of season
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6:16 pm ET) Making his first start of the season, Texans quarterback Case Keenum did just enough to help lead the Texans to a 25-13 win over the Ravens Sunday.

Keenum was the third quarterback to start for the Texans this seasons and he completed 20 of his 42 pass attempts for 185 yards. It was his first start since Dec. 15, 2013.

Keenum did not throw a touchdown pass and made an errant throw which intercepted by Darian Stewart in the first quarter. He also rushed for 19 yards on four carries.

The Texans host the Jaguars Week 17.


Two Bears combine for three catches in defeat
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:14 pm ET) A pair of Bears made the tiniest of contributions Sunday against the victorious Lions.

Wideout Josh Morgan caught two passes for two yards while tight end Dante Rosario snagged one for one yard.


Bears TE Bennett gains nothing in Sunday defeat
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:11 pm ET) Bears tight end Martellus Bennett had not been blanked in terms of yardage since Dec. 4, 2011. That is, until Sunday.

Bennett was targeted just three times and caught only one pass for no yards in the defeat to Detroit.

He still needs 143 yards in Week 17 at Minnesota to hit 1,000 for the season.


Steelers' Le'Veon Bell finds the end zone once again in Week 16
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:09 pm ET) Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell had 20 carries for 63 yards and a touchdown in Pittsburgh's 20-12 win over the Chiefs.

Bell has struggled over the last two weeks, with 40 carries for 110 yards total, after three weeks of 204, 95 and 185 in the previous three games. 

Bell also had just one catch for nine yards, his lowest receiving total since Week 12 against the Titans. 

The Steelers take on the Bengals in Week 17. 


Saints RB Mark Ingram finds the end zone in losing effort
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6:08 pm ET) Saints running back Mark Ingram found the end zone for the second consecutive week in his team's 30-14 defeat to the Falcons in Week 16. 

Ingram barreled his way into the end zone from 1-yard out in the second quarter. He finished the game with 13 carries for 38 yards and a score. He also caught all three of his targets for 17 yards.

He'll need 93 yards to crack the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career. He'll look to do so Week 17 against Tampa Bay.


Bears WR Marquess Wilson has career game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:06 pm ET) Bears wideout Marquess Wilson entered play Sunday with eight catches for 56 yards on the season. He more than doubled that yardage total against Detroit.

Wilson finished with seven receptions for 66 yards. He was targeted 10 times. He will try to take his momentum and run with it when the team concludes its season next Sunday at Minnesota.


Steelers' Roethlisberger throws for 220 yards and a touchdown in win
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:06 pm ET) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 18 of his 25 passes for 220 yards and a touchdown in Pittsburgh's win over Kansas City Sunday.

Roethlisberger also got banged up when he got hit in the leg making time to find Antonio Brown in the end zone for a touchdown.

He went to the locker room to get examined but did not miss any gametime with the injury.

Roethlisberger now has 4,635 yards passing on the season, the most in any season of his career.

The Steelers will have a chance to win the division in Week 17 against the Bengals.
