2013 Draft Prep: Latest 12-team draft

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

For some dads, Fantasy Football is a way to connect with the NFL on a more personal, more fun level, a level beyond basic one-team fandom. For Nathan Hall and Stone Slade, two of the four men on A&E's Modern Dads , it's a release from the day-to-day chaos that comes with raising children.

We were fortunate enough to have Hall and Slade draft with us for our 12-team league just after the second round of preseason games. And while they're not full-time Fantasy analysts like the rest of the people in the league, they held their own against the regulars.

When the CBS folks get together and draft we throw our personal allegiances out the window and aim to build the best Fantasy roster we can. Obviously that's recommended for anyone who plays Fantasy -- you're going to root for your team no matter what -- but both Hall and Slade insisted on finding at least one player from their favorite squads to put on their Fantasy teams. Both did it without reaching, so who are we to say it's wrong? Ultimately Fantasy is about having fun (and not having to change a diaper), so maximizing it with a player or two from your favorite team shouldn't be criticized.

We rolled standard-style -- six points per touchdown, minus-two points per turnover, one point for every 25 yards passing/10 yards rushing/10 yards receiving and the basics for kickers and DSTs. Going 15 rounds we required a starting lineup of a quarterback, two rushers, two receivers, a tight end, a Flex (RB/WR/TE) a kicker and a DST.

The draft order is as follows:

Jamaal Charles' ankle is sore after three-touchdown night
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:35 am ET) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles said he felt good during the 41-14 win over the Patriots, but admitted afterward his injured ankle was sore, reports ESPN.com. "I'm ready to get off it and ice it up," he said.

Charles got 21 touches and scored three touchdowns, two receiving, in his first action since spraining his ankle Week 2. He'll play the 49ers in San Francisco on Sunday.


Stephen Gostkowski barely sees the field
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:30 am ET) Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski hit two PATs and attempted no field goals in the Week 4 loss at Kansas City. He plays the Bengals on Sunday night.

Julian Edelman quiet on MNF
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:28 am ET) After three straight strong outings, Patriots receiver Julian Edelman was held to 23 receiving yards in Monday's loss at Kansas City. Edelman caught four of his eight targets and is up to 26 grabs this season.

Edelman cut his route short on Tom Brady's first interception, and he was unable to hang onto at least one catchable throw. Edelman will try to bounce back Sunday night against Cincinnati.


Rob Gronkowski notches third touchdown
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:24 am ET) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski drew just three targets in Monday night's loss in Kansas City. He hauled in an 18-yard pass in the first half and a 13-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, his third score this season.

Tom Brady wasn't able to get the ball to Gronk, who saw double coverage. But rookie Jimmy Garoppolo found Gronkowski for the late score.

Gronkowski's 31 yards marked a season low, and he has not cleared 50 yards in any game. He'll play the Bengals on Sunday night.


Brandon LaFell only bright spot for Patriots
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:14 am ET) Brandon LaFell led the Patriots in every receiving category in Monday's 41-14 loss to the Chiefs. He caught six of his 10 targets for a career-best 119 yards and a touchdown, producing his first 100-yard game since Week 5 last season when he played for Carolina.

A 6-3, 210-pounder, LaFell showed his strength late in the third quarter when he caught a slant and shed a tackle en route to a 44-yard score. This was only his third career 100-yard game.

LaFell will try to keep it going Week 5 when New England hosts the Bengals.


James White sees first NFL action
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:09 am ET) Patriots rookie running back James White was active for the first time Week 4, and he ended up receiving six touches as the game got out of hand. With the Chiefs winning big in the fourth quarter, White entered and ran three times for 21 yards while catching all three of his targets for 15 yards.

White plays the Bengals on Sunday night.


Stevan Ridley used sparingly in blowout loss
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:06 am ET) Patriots running back Stevan Ridley carried five times for 28 yards in the 41-14 defeat at Kansas City. He was targeted once without a catch.

Ridley faces the Bengals in Week 5.


Shane Vereen gets 13 touches
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:03 am ET) With the Patriots in comeback mode all night, running back Shane Vereen was on the field a lot in Kansas City. He ran eight times for 26 yards and caught all five of his targets for 41 yards.

Vereen established season highs in touches and receiving yards. He'll play Cincinnati on Sunday night.


Jimmy Garoppolo impresses in garbage time
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Patriots rookie quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo replaced Tom Brady in the fourth quarter of Monday's blowout loss and played well, completing 6 of 7 throws for 70 yards and a touchdown. It was Garoppolo's first action this season.

Garoppolo's first NFL throw was a 5-yard completion to Julian Edelman. On the same drive he found Brandon LaFell for 37 yards, then tight end Rob Gronkowski for a 13-yard touchdown.

Garoppolo and the Pats host Cincinnati on Sunday night.


Cairo Santos goes for 11 points
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos converted both his field-goal tries in the win over the Patriots, hitting from 22 and 31 yards. He added five PATs for an 11-point night. Santos visits the 49ers on Sunday.
