2013 Draft Prep: Pick-by-pick for No. 1 overall

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

No. 1 overall | No. 2 | No. 3 | No. 4 | No. 5 | No. 6 | No. 7
No. 8 | No. 9 | No. 10 | No. 11 | No. 12

If you had the chance to choose your draft spot, what pick would you select in the first round? What position do you feel gives you the best advantage in building your team?

Is it No. 1 to draft Adrian Peterson? Do you want somewhere in the middle to grab Calvin Johnson? Maybe it's the end to have the chance at a high-end selection in the second round?

There are a variety of ways to craft your team, and we're here to help. Some of you already know your draft slot, but others of you won't find out until just before the draft.

What my colleague Dave Richard and yours truly are doing here in this 12-part series is outlining a strategy for you to use with each pick. We are looking at all 12 picks individually in a 14-round draft and giving you an idea of what positions to target in each round.

We'll highlight some players who should be available with each pick, and hopefully this is a guide you can use on Draft Day in standard and PPR formats with a lineup of QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, FLEX (RB/WR/TE), K, DST and five reserve spots. Every draft is different, so don't expect to follow this plan exactly. But if you have an idea of what you want to do with each round you should be able to put together a solid squad.

We'll start with the first pick, which we're discussing here, and your choice is easy with Peterson. But what you do after Round 1 will likely decide your fate.

We'll go over all 14 picks for the No. 1 overall selection, and then you can check out the entire draft with this series in the coming weeks.

Editor's note: The percentages listed are what position you should target based on that round for each pick.

No. 1 overall -- Round 1
Round 1 - Standard QB 0% RB 100% WR 0% TE 0%
Round 1 - PPR QB 0% RB 100% WR 0% TE 0%

It would be a shock to see anyone draft another player other than Peterson after the way he played last season. He ran for 2,097 yards and 12 touchdowns and caught 40 passes for 217 yards and a touchdown, and he has the chance to post stellar stats again this year. Now, the other six 2,000-yard rushers in NFL history -- O.J. Simpson, Eric Dickerson, Barry Sanders, Terrell Davis, Jamal Lewis and Chris Johnson -- saw a decline in production the following year, but Peterson isn't expected to drop off enough to hurt his potential as the No. 1 overall pick.

Player you can get here: Adrian Peterson
My selection at No. 1 standard: Adrian Peterson
My selection at No. 1 PPR: Adrian Peterson

No. 1 overall -- Round 2
Round 2 - Standard QB 15% RB 40% WR 40% TE 5%
Round 2 - PPR QB 15% RB 30% WR 50% TE 5%

There are a lot of directions you can go in Round 2. If an elite quarterback is there like Drew Brees or Aaron Rodgers you can pull the trigger on the likely No. 1 overall scorer in your league, but quarterback is deep and we would wait. Taking Rob Gronkowski is also a possibility (Jimmy Graham should be gone), but there's too much risk involved (at least at this point) with his back injury. Our suggestion is best player available with the goal to get at least one running back at this swing pick. A receiver is a must in PPR, and Randall Cobb and his potential for 100 catches is the easy pick. We'll also take a receiver in the standard league and go with Larry Fitzgerald, who should rebound at a high level with the addition of coach Bruce Arians and quarterback Carson Palmer.

Players you can get here (standard): Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Maurice Jones-Drew, Lamar Miller, Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Johnson, Rob Gronkowski
Players you can get here (PPR): Stevan Ridley, Randall Cobb, Roddy White
My selection at No. 24 standard: Larry Fitzgerald
My selection at No. 24 PPR: Randall Cobb

No. 1 overall -- Round 3
Round 3 - Standard QB 15% RB 50% WR 30% TE 5%
Round 3 - PPR QB 15% RB 45% WR 35% TE 5%

As we said in Round 2, you want at least one running back with these two picks, and Maurice Jones-Drew is worth the gamble here. There's a big concern with Jones-Drew based on his comeback from last year's Lisfranc injury, but so far all signs have been positive in training camp. Stevan Ridley won't make it this far in standard leagues, but his lack of receptions (six in 2012, nine in two years) lowers his value in PPR. But he had over 1,200 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns last season, and he should again be a dominant force. If he falls to this spot as expected then pair him with Peterson and be excited about the start of your team.

Players you can get here (standard): Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Maurice Jones-Drew, Lamar Miller, Andre Johnson, Rob Gronkowski
Players you can get here (PPR): Stevan Ridley, Roddy White
My selection at No. 25 standard: Maurice Jones-Drew
My selection at No. 25 PPR: Stevan Ridley

No. 1 overall -- Round 4
Round 4 - Standard QB 20% RB 35% WR 35% TE 10%
Round 4 - PPR QB 20% RB 35% WR 35% TE 10%

The reason we said to wait on a quarterback is you should be able to draft one after the first couple of rounds who can still be a Top 5 finisher. And Matt Ryan, Tom Brady and Matthew Stafford have the potential to fall to this spot (Brady's Average Draft Position is No. 38, Ryan is No. 42 and Stafford is No. 50). Dave and I practice what we preach, so quarterbacks will go later in our drafts, and Ryan is the pick here in standard leagues. In PPR, we want another receiver to pair with Cobb, and Pierre Garcon is a Top 15 option on my draft board. When healthy, he was dominant in 2012, and he is reportedly having an outstanding training camp.

Players you can get here (standard): Matt Ryan, Tom Brady, Shane Vereen, Giovani Bernard, Rashard Mendenhall
Players you can get here (PPR): Cam Newton, Montee Ball, Eddie Lacy, Pierre Garcon, Eric Decker
My selection at No. 48 standard: Matt Ryan
My selection at No. 48 PPR: Pierre Garcon

No. 1 overall -- Round 5
Round 5 - Standard QB 0% RB 40% WR 40% TE 20%
Round 5 - PPR QB 20% RB 30% WR 30% TE 20%

Running back depth is a priority this season, and if you can get three running backs in the first five rounds you should be in good shape. Two running backs I'm extremely fond of this year are Shane Vereen and Giovani Bernard, and in each draft you should have one available here -- if not both. Vereen has the chance to help the Patriots replace departed players like Danny Woodhead and Aaron Hernandez, and reports are he's already looking like a clone of former New England standout Kevin Faulk. He's a capable No. 3 running back in standard leagues. Bernard might end up as the starter for the Bengals, but he's expected to work on passing downs in Cincinnati ahead of BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Having a running back corps of Peterson, Ridley and Bernard in any format gives you a lot of flexibility moving forward. The same goes for Peterson, Jones-Drew and Vereen.

Players you can get here (standard): Shane Vereen, Giovani Bernard, Rashard Mendenhall
Players you can get here (PPR): Cam Newton, Montee Ball, Eddie Lacy, Eric Decker
My selection at No. 49 standard: Shane Vereen
My selection at No. 49 PPR: Giovani Bernard

No. 1 overall -- Round 6
Round 6 - Standard QB 0% RB 25% WR 45% TE 30%
Round 6 - PPR QB 20% RB 20% WR 30% TE 30%

I don't recommend drafting a quarterback and tight end together in the first five rounds, but we're in the clear now at this point. Jason Witten is better in PPR than standard formats based on his lack of touchdowns -- he had three touchdowns last season and five or less in four of the past five years -- but he still has over 1,000 receiving yards in three of the past four seasons. You have now locked up a Top 5 quarterback, three running backs, including the No. 1 overall pick, one stud receiver and a Top 5 tight end. That's pretty legit. In the PPR league you'd love a tight end who should see a high volume of targets, and Tony Gonzalez was No. 3 in targets among tight ends last season. Even at 37 he should remain a force.

Players you can get here (standard): Ronnie Hillman, Pierre Thomas, Torrey Smith, Tavon Austin, Jordy Nelson, Jason Witten
Players you can get here (PPR): Tony Romo, Andrew Luck, Ben Tate, Bryce Brown, Kenny Britt, Tony Gonzalez
My selection at No. 72 standard: Jason Witten
My selection at No. 72 PPR: Tony Gonzalez

No. 1 overall -- Round 7
Round 7 - Standard QB 0% RB 30% WR 70% TE 0%
Round 7 - PPR QB 40% RB 30% WR 30% TE 0%

Based on how your draft is going to this point you need a second receiver in the standard league. The elite options are likely gone by now, and you want someone with upside. Torrey Smith fits that description. He's entering his third season, which is typically the year receivers have a breakout campaign, and the Ravens need him to step up with Anquan Boldin gone and Dennis Pitta (hip) out. The good thing on waiting for receivers this year is you can add quality depth late compared to running backs, so this is a good strategy. We'll take a quarterback in the PPR league here, and I like Tony Romo over Andrew Luck, Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson. He might turn out to be among the best value picks at any position this season.

Players you can get here (standard): Ronnie Hillman, Pierre Thomas, Torrey Smith, Tavon Austin, Jordy Nelson
Players you can get here (PPR): Tony Romo, Andrew Luck, Ben Tate, Bryce Brown, Kenny Britt
My selection at No. 73 standard: Torrey Smith
My selection at No. 73 PPR: Tony Romo

No. 1 overall -- Round 8
Round 8 - Standard QB 0% RB 40% WR 60% TE 0%
Round 8 - PPR QB 0% RB 40% WR 60% TE 0%

This is the point in the draft where you're going to be excited and amazed at the receiver depth available to you. It's the reason we tell you to load up on running backs early and wait for receivers. In the standard league, we'll stick with looking for a high-upside No. 3 receiver, and Josh Gordon is a great addition. He is suspended for the first two games, but he's going to be the focal point of a downfield passing attack that should highlight his skills. In the PPR league, we'll grab one of the most underrated receivers in Fantasy -- Lance Moore. He was a Top 20 receiver last season, and he should continue to be heavily involved as a top target for Drew Brees (he had 104 targets in 2012).

Players you can get here (standard): Johnathan Franklin, Jonathan Stewart, Fred Jackson, Josh Gordon, Mike Wallace
Players you can get here (PPR): Zac Stacy, Bilal Powell, Lance Moore, Ryan Broyles, Michael Floyd
My selection at No. 96 standard: Josh Gordon
My selection at No. 96 PPR: Lance Moore

No. 1 overall -- Round 9
Round 9 - Standard QB 0% RB 50% WR 50% TE 0%
Round 9 - PPR QB 0% RB 50% WR 50% TE 0%

You're going to find, unfortunately, that the running back depth will dry up quickly, and you'll be reaching for players you might not have expected. We always recommend at least four running backs in a 14-round draft (five are preferable), so we'll take the likely No. 2 running back for the Packers in Johnathan Franklin. Eddie Lacy is expected to start, but Franklin should play a prominent role. He's a quality reserve given the options on the table. In the PPR league, we'll take one of our favorite sleepers in Ryan Broyles. I'd have no problem using Moore or Broyles as a flex option in this format, especially since Broyles could be a force as the slot receiver for the pass-happy Lions.

Players you can get here (standard): Johnathan Franklin, Jonathan Stewart, Mike Wallace
Players you can get here (PPR): Zac Stacy, Bilal Powell, Fred Jackson, Ryan Broyles, Michael Floyd
My selection at No. 97 standard: Johnathan Franklin
My selection at No. 97 PPR: Ryan Broyles

No. 1 overall -- Round 10
Round 10 - Standard QB 0% RB 50% WR 50% TE 0%
Round 10 - PPR QB 0% RB 50% WR 50% TE 0%

If you've already drafted your quarterback and tight end at this point and like the depth you have at running back and receiver the goal now is to take potential sleepers, fallback options who could help you in a pinch or handcuff running backs. In the PPR league we'll grab our fourth running back in Shonn Greene. While he's not expected to be a factor in the passing game and gets a significant downgrade in value going from the starter for the Jets to the backup for the Titans, he could still score a healthy amount of touchdowns. And if Johnson goes down then Greene could thrive. In the standard league, Alshon Jeffery could have a solid sophomore campaign for coach Marc Trestman. He's a great No. 4 receiver behind Fitzgerald, Smith and Gordon.

Players you can get here (standard): Alshon Jeffery, Justin Blackmon, Aaron Dobson, Denarius Moore, Seahawks DST
Players you can get here (PPR): Shonn Greene, LaMichael James, Knile Davis, Rueben Randle, Vincent Brown
My selection at No. 120 standard: Alshon Jeffery
My selection at No. 120 PPR: Shonn Greene

No. 1 overall -- Round 11
Round 11 - Standard QB 0% RB 40% WR 40% TE 0% DST 20%
Round 11 - PPR QB 0% RB 40% WR 40% TE 0% DST 20%

Every owner has a different philosophy on drafting a DST and when to do it. My advice is to do it when you feel comfortable, but wait until at least Round 10 if possible. With the way the standard league team has been built, this is a good time to pull the trigger on the No. 1 DST in the Seahawks. There's no need to draft a No. 2 quarterback for someone like Ryan, and the running back depth is terrible at this point. Since we already have four receivers, grabbing the Seahawks makes sense. In the PPR league we'll grab a running back with upside in LaMichael James. He might not see much action early on, but he could emerge as a receiving threat for the 49ers behind Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter.

Players you can get here (standard): Justin Blackmon, Aaron Dobson, Denarius Moore, Seahawks DST
Players you can get here (PPR): LaMichael James, Knile Davis, Rueben Randle, Vincent Brown
My selection at No. 121 standard: Seahawks DST
My selection at No. 121 PPR: LaMichael James

No. 1 overall -- Round 12
Round 12 - Standard QB 0% RB 50% WR 50% TE 0% DST 0%
Round 12 - PPR QB 0% RB 40% WR 40% TE 0% DST 20%

You're just looking for value here in the standard league, and Kendall Wright showed promise as a rookie for the Titans last year with 64 catches for 626 yards and four touchdowns. The Titans have some quality weapons with Johnson, Kenny Britt and Wright, but the key to their success will be Jake Locker. We hope he can make Wright successful enough that he's a spot starter or trade bait. In the PPR league, we'll handcuff Peterson with Toby Gerhart.

Players you can get here (standard): Marcel Reece, Denard Robinson, Kendall Wright, Brandon LaFell
Players you can get here (PPR): Toby Gerhart, Mikel Leshoure, Brian Hartline, Texans DST, Broncos DST
My selection at No. 144 standard: Kendall Wright
My selection at No. 144 PPR: Toby Gerhart

No. 1 overall -- Round 13
Round 13 - Standard QB 0% RB 80% WR 0% TE 0% DST 0% K 20%
Round 13 - PPR QB 0% RB 0% WR 0% TE 0% DST 80% K 20%

You shouldn't take a kicker until your last pick the majority of the time, so this round is typically when you'll target either a DST or a value pick with upside. We already went with a DST in Round 11 in the standard league and just drafted our No. 5 receiver in Round 12. It's a good idea to handcuff your top running back if possible, and Gerhart is the pick here to back up Peterson. Gerhart won't play as well as Peterson if he gets hurt, but in 2011 when Peterson was injured he had either 100 total yards or a touchdown in five of his final six games. The Texans DST is the pick in the PPR league to cover that spot, and they should be a solid unit again in 2013.

Players you can get here (standard): Toby Gerhart, Marcel Reece, Denard Robinson, Brandon LaFell
Players you can get here (PPR): Texans DST, Broncos DST, Packers DST
My selection at No. 145 standard: Toby Gerhart
My selection at No. 145 PPR: Texans DST

No. 1 overall -- Round 14
Round 14 - Standard QB 0% RB 0% WR 0% TE 0% DST 0% K 100%
Round 14 - PPR QB 0% RB 0% WR 0% TE 0% DST 0% K 100%

Plain and simple, take the kicker you like the best. You should look for a late bye week to avoid making a wasted transaction early, and you want someone who plays in a favorable environment if possible. I seem to end up with Dan Bailey a lot, and he fits my criteria with a bye in Week 11 on a good offensive team indoors. But you should be fine with anyone from the group listed below.

Players you can get here: Dan Bailey, Randy Bullock, Mason Crosby
My selection at No. 168 standard: Dan Bailey
My selection at No. 168 PPR: Dan Bailey

No. 1 overall -- Final Rosters
Standard PPR
QB Matt Ryan QB Tony Romo
RB Adrian Peterson RB Adrian Peterson

Panthers pick up option on Luke Kuechly contract
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) What was promised by general manager Dave Gettleman is now official - the Panthers have picked up the fifth-year option on the rookie contract of standout linebacker Luke Kuechly, per the team website.

The two-time Pro Bowler has led the NFL in tackles in two of his three seasons and was named NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2013. He has racked up 473 tackles since 2012, the most in the NFL.


Ravens TE Dennis Pitta hopeful for 2015 return
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta hopes to take the field in time for the 2015 season, but admits it's too early to determine if that goal can become a reality.

Pitta has undergone surgeries to repair a fractured and dislocated hip in each of the last two years.

"We still have some time to be able to assess where I'm at," Pitta told the Baltimore Sun. "I sure hope that I'll be on the field next year. That's my hope; that's my goal. We'll just see if I can get there."

Pitta has played in just seven games in the last two seasons combined.


Mark Sanchez: Eagles said Tim Tebow was just a camp arm
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez said he wasn't concerned that the team signed Tim Tebow, because the Eagles told him Tebow was just there to throw in camp.

"We needed another guy to throw while Sam's (Bradford) still recovering. So that's the reason (for the signing), at least as explained to me," Sanchez said, per CSN Philadelphia

The Eagles signed Tebow on Monday. He hasn't played in the NFL since getting cut by the Patriots at the end of training camp prior to the 2013 season. He spent last year as a television analyst for the SEC Network. 

Tebow and Sanchez were teammates on the Jets in 2012. Tebow's presence as a back-up created a quarterback controversy among fans and media that last ed throughout the season. 


Vikings CB Terence Newman has familiarity with Mike Zimmer
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Vikings cornerback Terence Newman won't have a steep learning curve now that he's with his new team. 

Newman played under Vikings coach Mike Zimmer when he was the defensive coordinator with the Cowboys. Drafted in 2003, Newman learned Zimmer's defense from his rookie season through 2006, before Zimmer left to take the same position with the Falcons. 

“I just know exactly what to expect from him as a coach, as well as everybody else in this locker room,” Newman told the Vikings' website. “You play your best football under him.”

In his career, Newman has recorded 741 tackles and 37 interceptions. Entering his 13th NFL year, Newman has already impressed his teammates with voluntary workouts underway. 

“I met with him and he seemed like a great guy,” cornerback Xavier Rhodes said. “Like he’s going to come in and teach us what we need to know about the technique of the game and about the defense because he’s been in it before, so he’s going to help us out a lot. He’s a big asset to this team and the defense.”


Chiefs pick up option on NT Dontari Poe
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) The Chiefs have exercised their fifth-year option on two-time Pro Bowl nose tackle Dontari Poe, per NFL.com. He is set in Kansas City through 2016, when he will earn $6.146 million.

The 350-pound Poe has earned the money. He racked up six sacks and contributed to 46 tackles in 2014.


Lions GM Mayhew OK with James Ihedigbo skipping workouts
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Safety James Ihedigbo was the lone absence from voluntary workouts this week for the Lions. But general manager Martin Mayhew understands. After all, Ihedigbo's agent has stated that he would not work without a new contract.

"I look forward to talking with James," Mayhew told ESPN. "I understand what he's going through. I've been through that myself as a player, when I felt that a time in my career that I was underpaid and I had to deal with that.

"So I have empathy for him. I understand what he's going through and I look forward to sitting down and talking with him. I have great respect for him as a player, as a man. I've gotten to know him a little bit away from football and I understand how he feels."

Mayhew declined to discuss whether the Liins will rework Ihedigbo's contract.

The 31-year-old Ihedigbo contributed 71 tackles and two sacks with a career-high four interceptions in 2014 despite missing three games at the start of the year with a nerve injury. He earned Pro Bowl alternate status.


Eagles withdraw qualifying offer to RB Chris Polk
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Running back Chris Polk is now a free agent. 

According to the NFL transaction wire, the Eagles rescinded their $1.6 million tender they offered this past March. The Eagles placed the tender on Polk, previously a restricted free agent, before signing both DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews in free agency. 

With Darren Sproles on the roster, it didn't make much sense for Polk to stay with the Eagles. 

In 2014, Polk ran for 172 yards and four touchdowns. 


RB Bobby Rainey signs qualifying offer with Buccaneers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) The Buccaneers have announced that running back Bobby Rainey has signed a one-year qualifying offer the team extended to him before the free agency period. He was a restricted free agent and was given an opportunity to negotiate with other teams.

Rainey will compete for playing time with Tampa Bay. He rushed for 406 yards in 2014, but faded at the end of the season with just two carries in the last six games combined.


Jaguars planning to play 2015 season without Justin Blackmon
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) As far as the Jaguars are concerned, Justin Blackmon will not be lining up at receiver for them this season. 

At least that's the approach Jacksonville is taking. Blackmon has been indefinitely suspended since Nov. 1 2013 for three violations of the substance-abuse policy under the old CBA.

"Our process hasn't changed," Caldwell said, via ESPN.com. "[We] plan to go without him, but if he emerges, he emerges, and he's going to go in with those top guys and compete with those other guys. Hopefully we're able to get some news, but if not we weren't planning on [having Blackmon]. We're just going to go [without him]."

Before he can re-join the Jaguars, he'll need to file an application for reinstatement, with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell making a decision within a 60-day window. The application letter would include details of the treatment he's received. 

Since being selected with the fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft, Blackmon has only played in 20 games. He has 1,280 yards and six touchdowns in his career. 


Cowboys' Greg Hardy called 'woman beater' by teammate
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy got into an altercation with teammate Davon Coleman during a voluntary offseason workout, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports

Hardy reportedly questioned Coleman's work ethic during a conditioning drill, which led Coleman to call Hardy a "woman beater."

Hardy was accused of domestic abuse and was found guilty by a North Carolina judge. On the subsequent appeal, prosecutors dropped charges against Hardy and the case was never presented in front of a jury. 

Hardy has been suspended by the NFL for 10 games due to what transpired in that case. According to FOX Sports, the confrontation between Hardy and Coleman remained verbal
