2013 Draft Prep: Pick-by-pick for No. 11 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

An important aspect on Draft Day that often gets overlooked is paying attention to what happens around you with everyone else in your league. Sometimes you get so focused on your own team you forget to check out what the other owners are doing.

It's crucial to do that when picking toward the end of a round, which we are here at pick No. 11 in our ongoing 12-part series looking at each pick in the first round of a standard and PPR draft. You need to know what the owner at No. 12 is going to do when you pick ahead of them in every odd round. The same applies to the owners at the top of the draft in even rounds.

We say that because when you need or want a player, you want to anticipate what the owner behind you is going to do and remain a step ahead. For example, in this two-man draft I conducted with my colleague, Dave Richard, there were two instances in the standard league where I made a pick in advance of what Dave was likely planning.

We both went with two running backs with our first two picks at the end of the first round. I knew in Round 3 we both needed a receiver, but I also was looking at Darren Sproles. The top three receivers on my board were Randall Cobb, Victor Cruz and Vincent Jackson, in that order, so I took Cobb at No. 35 overall.

My thought was Dave would definitely take one receiver and probably two. I would have the choice of Sproles, Cruz or Jackson, but it was unlikely Cobb would make it back to me. Instead of taking Sproles in Round 3, I waited and got him in Round 4 along with the receiver I coveted after Dave drafted Cruz and Jackson.

The other instance was in Round 5 and 6. We both needed a quarterback heading into Round 5, but I wanted to wait to take a receiver, which I did in Danny Amendola. I was looking at two quarterback options in Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck, and I would be happy with either one even though I have Griffin ranked higher. As luck would have it, Dave took Luck, leaving me with the quarterback I wanted.

All we're saying is be aware. Use the roster grid in the draft room. Pay attention. The more you know about what's going on around you the better your team will be.

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

No. 11 overall -- Round 1
Round 1 - Standard QB 10% RB 70% WR 10% TE 10%
Round 1 - PPR QB 0% RB 30% WR 20% TE 50%

The No. 11 spot in a standard league is likely the cutoff point of getting a player you actually love. Alfred Morris is considered the last elite-level running back, and he's an easy choice in standard formats if he falls to this pick. In the PPR league, this is the point to gamble on Jimmy Graham. It might seem shocking to draft a tight end in Round 1, but Graham has the potential to be the biggest difference maker at his position than anyone else, especially if Rob Gronkowski (back) is out for an extended period of time. And taking Graham here still allows you to draft a Top 15 running back in Round 2.

Players you can get here (standard): Alfred Morris, Matt Forte, Stevan Ridley, Dez Bryant, A.J. Green, Jimmy Graham
Players you can get here (PPR): Marshawn Lynch, Reggie Bush, Alfred Morris, Steven Jackson, Jimmy Graham, Dez Bryant, A.J. Green, Brandon Marshall
My selection at No. 11 standard: Alfred Morris
My selection at No. 11 PPR: Jimmy Graham

No. 11 overall -- Round 2
Round 2 - Standard QB 5% RB 30% WR 30% TE 35%
Round 2 - PPR QB 5% RB 60% WR 35% TE 0%

We'll pair Graham with a quality running back in Steven Jackson, who might be near the end of his career but should still do well in his first season with the Falcons. Jackson has more upside in PPR leagues than Morris, who will drop to the second round in this format. In the standard league, we'll go with consecutive running backs to start our team, and Stevan Ridley could be a steal. He should again be around 1,300 total yards and 12 touchdowns as the No. 1 rusher for the Patriots.

Players you can get here (standard): Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Stevan Ridley, Chris Johnson, Reggie Bush, Dez Bryant, A.J. Green, Julio Jones, Jimmy Graham
Players you can get here (PPR): Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Steven Jackson, Alfred Morris, Chris Johnson, Dez Bryant, Brandon Marshall, Larry Fitzgerald
My selection at No. 14 standard: Stevan Ridley
My selection at No. 14 PPR: Steven Jackson

No. 11 overall -- Round 3
Round 3 - Standard QB 15% RB 30% WR 45% TE 10%
Round 3 - PPR QB 10% RB 45% WR 45% TE 0%

Since we avoided receivers so far in the first two rounds in both leagues it's time to get at least one Top 12 option in this spot. In the standard league, Cobb makes sense since he has Top 10 potential, especially if the Packers do force feed him the ball in an effort to get him 100 receptions. In the PPR league we'll go with Cruz, who also has Top 10 potential and makes a good No. 1 receiver when you start your team with Graham and Jackson.

Players you can get here (standard): Peyton Manning, Darren Sproles, Montee Ball, Eddie Lacy, Randall Cobb, Vincent Jackson, Victor Cruz, Rob Gronkowski
Players you can get here (PPR): Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Darren McFadden, Frank Gore, Shane Vereen, Victor Cruz, Marques Colston, Danny Amendola
My selection at No. 35 standard: Randall Cobb
My selection at No. 35 PPR: Victor Cruz

No. 11 overall -- Round 4
Round 4 - Standard QB 20% RB 20% WR 40% TE 20%
Round 4 - PPR QB 10% RB 45% WR 45% TE 0%

As we've said over and over again throughout this series, stockpiling running back depth is paramount, and we'll take our third option in the standard league. Getting Morris, Ridley and Sproles gives up depth as well as a solid flex with three Top 20 running backs. We still have plenty of time to load up on receivers over the next few rounds. In the PPR league we want our second running back, and Darren McFadden is the best on the board. When you wait until Round 4 to take your second running back, in any format, you want someone with his upside even though he comes with extreme injury risk.

Players you can get here (standard): Peyton Manning, Darren Sproles, Montee Ball, Eddie Lacy, Marques Colston, Dwayne Bowe, Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski
Players you can get here (PPR): Aaron Rodgers, Darren McFadden, Frank Gore, Shane Vereen, Danny Amendola, Dwayne Bowe, Reggie Wayne
My selection at No. 38 standard: Darren Sproles
My selection at No. 38 PPR: Darren McFadden

No. 11 overall -- Round 5
Round 5 - Standard QB 20% RB 10% WR 50% TE 20%
Round 5 - PPR QB 20% RB 30% WR 50% TE 0%

We need to stockpile some running back depth in the PPR league, so getting Rashard Mendenhall makes sense here. He should be the every-down back for the Cardinals, and he serves as a solid flex option in any format. You just have to hope he can stay healthy and the Cardinals offensive line improves this season. In the standard league, we'll take our second receiver in this spot with Amendola. If he can stay healthy he should approach 100 catches as he replaces Wes Welker in New England.

Players you can get here (standard): Robert Griffin III, Chris Ivory, Andre Brown, Daryl Richardson, Danny Amendola, Steve Smith, Cecil Shorts, Tony Gonzalez
Players you can get here (PPR): Tom Brady, Rashard Mendenhall, Ryan Mathews, Chris Ivory, Steve Johnson, Antonio Brown, Hakeem Nicks
My selection at No. 59 standard: Danny Amendola
My selection at No. 59 PPR: Rashard Mendenhall

No. 11 overall -- Round 6
Round 6 - Standard QB 40% RB 10% WR 30% TE 20%
Round 6 - PPR QB 20% RB 30% WR 50% TE 0%

This is the spot in most leagues where I'll begin to look at a quarterback, and Griffin sitting there has me confident I made the right move. This is just about his Average Draft Position at No. 56 overall, so for those of you who say he would never be there in your league, the data doesn't back that up. We now have three standout running backs and two solid receivers before drafting a quarterback, and our team is off to a great start. In the PPR league, we'll take the best value on the board, which is Antonio Brown, who makes for an excellent second receiver in Round 6, especially with the way our roster is coming together.

Players you can get here (standard): Robert Griffin III, Andre Brown, Daryl Richardson, Ronnie Hillman, Steve Smith, Cecil Shorts, James Jones, Tony Gonzalez
Players you can get here (PPR): Tom Brady, Chris Ivory, Ahmad Bradshaw, Ronnie Hillman, Antonio Brown, Hakeem Nicks, James Jones
My selection at No. 62 standard: Robert Griffin III
My selection at No. 62 PPR: Antonio Brown

No. 11 overall -- Round 7
Round 7 - Standard QB 0% RB 30% WR 50% TE 20%
Round 7 - PPR QB 30% RB 30% WR 40% TE 0%

I'm never opposed to playing a receiver in the flex spot in a PPR league, and we'll gamble on upside here with Jordy Nelson. He's going to fall after having knee surgery in training camp, but if he's ready for Week 1 then this pick is a steal. Don't hesitate to draft Nelson, especially as your third receiver, since he's the Packers second-best receiving threat when healthy behind Cobb. We made the same pick in the standard league, and having Nelson behind Cobb and Amendola is scary good.

Players you can get here (standard): BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Ben Tate, Mark Ingram, Jordy Nelson, Mike Williams, Kenny Britt, Jared Cook
Players you can get here (PPR): Eli Manning, DeAngelo Williams, Bryce Brown, Ben Tate, Jordy Nelson, Mike Wallace, DeSean Jackson
My selection at No. 83 standard: Jordy Nelson
My selection at No. 83 PPR: Jordy Nelson

No. 11 overall -- Round 8
Round 8 - Standard QB 0% RB 40% WR 40% TE 20%
Round 8 - PPR QB 50% RB 30% WR 20% TE 0%

I've said before in this series one thing I would avoid in any format is drafting a tight end and quarterback in the first five rounds. Since we took Graham in Round 1, we had to wait for a quarterback, so we'll settle for a potential Top 10 option in Eli Manning. He's going to rebound this year and finish as at least a Top 12 quarterback, which he was the two years prior to his failed 2012 campaign. In the standard league, we'll take a running back with upside in Mark Ingram. This, finally, could be his breakout season, and don't be shocked if he reaches double digits in touchdowns.

Players you can get here (standard): Mark Ingram, Vick Ballard, Zac Stacy, Mike Williams, Kenny Britt, Miles Austin, Jared Cook
Players you can get here (PPR): Eli Manning, Colin Kaepernick, Bryce Brown, Ben Tate, Vick Ballard, DeSean Jackson, Michael Floyd, Lance Moore
My selection at No. 86 standard: Mark Ingram
My selection at No. 86 PPR: Eli Manning

No. 11 overall -- Round 9
Round 9 - Standard QB 0% RB 20% WR 40% TE 40%
Round 9 - PPR QB 0% RB 60% WR 40% TE 0%

Running back would probably make more sense in the PPR league, but we can't pass up talent when it's staring us in the face. Golden Tate will open the season as the best receiver in Seattle with Percy Harvin (hip) hurt, and he should do well in a contract year. Like Nelson, we can use Tate as a flex option in this format. In the standard league, we'll add a receiver with upside in Ryan Broyles. The Lions led the NFL in passing attempts last season, and Broyles should be the No. 2 receiver opposite Calvin Johnson. That means plenty of targets and plenty of single coverage.

Players you can get here (standard): Shonn Greene, Joique Bell, Christine Michael, Ryan Broyles, DeAndre Hopkins, Justin Blackmon, Kyle Rudolph
Players you can get here (PPR): Jonathan Stewart, Isaiah Pead, Joique Bell, Golden Tate, Justin Blackmon, Emmanuel Sanders
My selection at No. 107 standard: Ryan Broyles
My selection at No. 107 PPR: Golden Tate

No. 11 overall -- Round 10
Round 10 - Standard QB 10% RB 20% WR 30% TE 40%
Round 10 - PPR QB 10% RB 60% WR 30% TE 0%

It's a coincidence to get Russell Wilson here in both formats, but for each team he makes sense if he's still on the board. If it's not Wilson then consider the highest No. 2 quarterback an option here because it's needed. For Griffin, coming off last year's knee injury, there's still risk of a setback, so cover your roster just in case. And for Manning, there's still the risk of him struggling again, especially if Hakeem Nicks is banged up as he was last season. Wilson, while not a Top 12 quarterback on my board, makes for a great replacement option in case either Griffin or Manning struggle.

Players you can get here (standard): Russell Wilson, Shonn Greene, Joique Bell, Christine Michael, Anquan Boldin, Emmanuel Sanders, Rueben Randle, Kyle Rudolph
Players you can get here (PPR): Russell Wilson, Isaiah Pead, Joique Bell, Shonn Greene, Justin Blackmon, Emmanuel Sanders, Alshon Jeffery
My selection at No. 110 standard: Russell Wilson
My selection at No. 110 PPR: Russell Wilson

No. 11 overall -- Round 11
Round 11 - Standard QB 0% RB 20% WR 30% TE 40% DST 10%
Round 11 - PPR QB 0% RB 60% WR 30% TE 0% DST 10%

We're confident in our team in the PPR league, so it's time to take high-upside selections when they are available. You should generally wait toward the end of your draft to take a DST, but if you feel comfortable with your roster then act early. That's where we are in this round, and we'll take the 49ers DST since the Seahawks are already gone. In the standard league, we'll look for a receiver with upside, and I continue to like Denarius Moore since he's the No. 1 receiver for the Raiders. I'm not confident in quarterback Matt Flynn, but Moore still has potential in his third year.

Players you can get here (standard): Michael Bush, Mikel Leshoure, Rashad Jennings, Denarius Moore, Rod Streater, Chris Givens, Tyler Eifert, Jordan Cameron
Players you can get here (PPR): Jacquizz Rodgers, Lance Dunbar, Kendall Hunter, Chris Givens, Aaron Dobson, 49ers DST
My selection at No. 131 standard: Denarius Moore
My selection at No. 131 PPR: 49ers DST

No. 11 overall -- Round 12
Round 12 - Standard QB 0% RB 0% WR 0% TE 80% DST 20%
Round 12 - PPR QB 0% RB 70% WR 30% TE 0% DST 0%

We don't have a tight end in the standard league, so at this point you're looking for someone with sleeper potential. Jordan Cameron has emerged as one of the top sleepers this preseason, and he has more upside than someone like Owen Daniels or Brandon Pettigrew. And if he falters then we can drop him for Daniels or Pettigrew during the season. In the PPR league, with just three running backs on the roster, we'll get a handcuff option in Jacquizz Rodgers, who would become the starter in Atlanta if Jackson missed any time.

Players you can get here (standard): Jordan Cameron, Owen Daniels, Brandon Pettigrew, Bengals DST
Players you can get here (PPR): Jacquizz Rodgers, Kendall Hunter, Daniel Thomas, Chris Givens, Aaron Dobson
My selection at No. 134 standard: Jordan Cameron
My selection at No. 134 PPR: Jacquizz Rodgers

No. 11 overall -- Round 13
Round 13 - Standard QB 0% RB 0% WR 0% TE 0% DST 80% K 20%
Round 13 - PPR QB 0% RB 70% WR 30% TE 0% DST 0% K 0%

We'll go with another handcuff running back in the PPR league with Rashad Jennings to back up McFadden. We know McFadden has a lengthy injury history, so the No. 2 running back in Oakland makes a lot of sense, especially given the makeup of our roster. We now have the Raiders running backs and the Falcons running backs locked up, and along with Mendenhall we should have enough depth to start our team. In the standard league, it's time for a DST, and the Falcons were a Top 10 unit in 2012 and should have the chance to repeat that performance.

Players you can get here (standard): Falcons DST, Vikings DST, Buccaneers DST
Players you can get here (PPR): Rashad Jennings
My selection at No. 155 standard: Falcons DST
My selection at No. 155 PPR: Rashad Jennings

No. 11 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%

It's time for a kicker in both leagues, and you should do whatever you can to save your kicker for the last round. We end up with our No. 1 kicker in Stephen Gostkowski since Dave likes Blair Walsh as his top kicker. The Patriots offense is going to again be dominant, and Gostkowski should have plenty of chances to shine.

Players you can get here (standard): Stephen Gostkowski, Matt Prater, Matt Bryant
Players you can get here (PPR): Stephen Gostkowski, Matt Prater, Matt Bryant
My selection at No. 158 standard: Stephen Gostkowski
My selection at No. 158 PPR: Stephen Gostkowski

Colts can void RB Trent Richardson's contract
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:27 pm ET) The Colts can void running back Trent Richardson's $3.1 million guaranteed salary for 2015 because he was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team, reports CBS Sports' Joel Corry, a former agent who's an expert on player contracts.

Richardson, who missed a walkthrough before the AFC title game, received a two-game suspension from the team, general manager Ryan Grigson confirmed. If Indy chooses to keep Richardson, he'd serve the second game of the suspension next season.

ESPN.com expects the Colts to exercise their option to void Richardson's contract, and the players' union to challenge that move.


Panthers LB Thomas Davis says he's not close to retirement
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:17 pm ET) Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis, who turns 32 in March, is not contemplating retirement any time soon, reports ESPN.com.

“I lost two and a half years to injuries, but I also feel I gained two and a half years," said Davis, who underwent two reconstructive ACL surgeries on the same knee. "This was my 10th year and I’m going on year 11, and I still feel I have a lot of football left in me.’’

Davis has one year left on his contract, and he hopes to sign one more contract after that. Davis made 100 tackles this season after recording a team-high 123 in 2013.


Union challenges Goodell on Adrian Peterson's counseling requirement
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:16 pm ET) The NFL Players Association filed a legal brief saying Commissioner Roger Goodell's requirement that Adrian Peterson attend counseling was unlawful, reports ESPN.com. The union claims Goodell's disciplinary powers don't extend past suspensions, fines and contract terminations to counseling, the report said.

In November, Goodell suspended Peterson without pay for the rest of the season and said the Vikings running back cannot be reinstated until at least April 15. The move came after Peterson pleaded no contest to recklessly injuring his 4-year-old son last May.

In his letter to Peterson, Goodell set several requirements for reinstatement, including counseling.

"In order to assess your progress going forward, I will establish periodic reviews, the first of which will be on or about April 15, 2015," the commisssioner wrote. "At that time, I will meet with you and your representatives and the NFLPA to review the extent to which you have complied with your program of counseling and therapy and both made and lived up to an affirmative commitment to change such that this conduct will not occur again. A failure to cooperate and follow your plan will result in a lengthier suspension without pay."


Bucs QB Mike Glennon on the move?
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:03 am ET) With the Buccaneers holding the No. 1 overall draft pick, the team has its choice of quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota. The Tampa Tribune says "some around the league" believe other teams will try to trade for quarterback Mike Glennon, and that Glennon could net the Bucs a fourth- or fifth-round pick.

Glennon played in six games this season, throwing for 1,417 yards and 10 touchdowns with six interceptions. The team's refusal to play Glennon "even after their slim playoff hopes faded" has many observers believing the Bucs are ready to move on from him, the paper said.


Lions see plenty of upside in WR Corey Fuller
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:38 am ET) The Lions are looking for a solid No. 3 receiver to supplement Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, and converted track star Corey Fuller could be the guy, reports the team's website. Fuller was Johnson's backup in 2014 and played in some multi-receiver sets, catching 14 passes for 212 yards and a touchdown.

“I think I had a big improvement coming in from last year to this year,” said Fuller, a sixth-round pick in the 2013 draft. “If I just keep on progressing, who knows where I can go.”

Fuller, who brings a unique combination of speed and strength, said his main focus this offseason is improving his route running.

“The whole (route) tree,” he said. “Being able to expand the routes they throw me.”


Steelers not expected to re-sign Ike Taylor
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9:55 am ET) The Steelers likely won't re-sign impending free agent cornerback Ike Taylor, reports ESPN.com. Taylor, 34, dealt with multiple injuries this season and finished with 16 tackles in five games.

Taylor has spent his entire 12-year career with Pittsburgh. He said this month he's OK with 2014 being his last season.


Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart looking to build off strong finish
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9:37 am ET) Over the last five weeks of the regular season, Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart rushed for 486 yards, second only to Dallas' DeMarco Murray. Stewart followed that up with 123 yards and a touchdown in the playoff win over Arizona.

"I'm really excited for next year," Stewart told the team's website. "You have to find your zone throughout the offseason. It starts now."

Stewart got the chance to be a workhorse when DeAngelo Williams fractured his hand Week 13. ESPN.com reports there's a "strong possibility" the Panthers will release the 31-year-old Williams this offseason, leaving Stewart, 27, as the unquestioned starter.

"It's just part of the journey," Stewart said of the individual success he had toward season's end. "The moment you start focusing on that, you miss out on other things along the journey."


Report: Patriots hoping to sign Darrelle Revis to long-term extension
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2015) The Patriots are reportedly looking to sign cornerback Darrelle Revis to a long-term extension, according Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

However, New England has not ruled out paying Revis the $20 million team option in 2015, Rapoport reports. The decision needs to be made by April 1, when a $12 million roster bonus kicks in for Revis.

Revis totaled 47 tackles in 16 games for the Patriots, grabbing two interceptions and forcing one fumble.


C.J. Spiller expecting 'March Madness' style free agency
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2015) Bills running back C.J. Spiller is getting healthy again. Spiller, who has fully recovered from a shoulder injury, just ended the final season of his contract and is looking at his options for next season.

"Physically, I’m back to 100 percent, back to doing normal activities," Spiller told The Post and Courier on Friday. "As far as football, free agency will start in March, and I’ll get with my people next week and get a game plan together."

Spiller has played five seasons for the Bills, only playing two full years. He ran for 1,244 yards in 2012 with six touchdowns.

"I guess you could say it’ll be March Madness," Spiller said with a smile. "It’ll be a fun March."


Report: Rams among teams interested in trade for Eagles' Foles
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2015) Teams are beginning to show interest in Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, as reports are surfacing Philadelphia is unsure of what to do with the third-year quarterback, per NJ.com. A source said the Rams have interest in Foles should the Eagles choose to trade him this offseason. 

The Titans and Texans have also been mentioned as teams that would have interest in Foles, if he hits the trade market.

It's still unclear if the Eagles would be willing to move Foles. NJ.com reported last week the Eagles, who have the 20th pick in the NFL Draft, are considering making a run at Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota in the draft. 

"From No. 20, it's certainly not going to be easy,'' a source said. "It's probably going to take moving up twice to do it. There's going to be some wheeling and dealing involved.

"Can it happen? I don't know. But they're going to try."

Eagles head coach Chip Kelly recruited Mariota to Oregon and coached him for two years.

"Obviously, [with] my relationship with coach Kelly, it'd be a lot of fun to be a part of that offense and be a part of that team," Mariota said when asked about a potential reunion with Kelly.

Foles is 15-9 as a starter in the NFL, but he has yet to play a full season. He has completed 61.6 percent of his passes for 6,753 yards, 46 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.
