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:

Bengals WR A.J. Green: My big toe now feels '100 percent'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11:26 am ET) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green told reporters following a 22-13 win Week 12 at Houston that his right big toe is "100 percent."

"The toe is 100 percent," Green said. "Last week was good, the couple games before that was all right, but now, I have no pain."

Green was bothered by his toe since the start of the season, which caused him to miss three straight games. On Sunday, he hauled in a career-high 12 catches for 121 yards and was one reception shy of setting the franchise record in catches.


Rams DST continues to impress
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11:11 am ET) At least for Fantasy purposes, the Rams had another strong defensive showing Week 12 at San Diego. True, they gave up 27 points on 410 yards, but they also had three sacks and three takeaways, including an interception that Janoris Jenkins returned 99 yards for a touchdown early in the second quarter.

It was the third time in four games that the Rams DST scored double-digit Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues -- something it did only twice in its first seven games. And one of those three was against the Broncos, lest you forget.

The key to the Rams' turnaround has been their pass rush, which was expected to be among the league's best coming into the season but recorded just one sack in its first five games. It has 21 in six games since.

With the turnaround, the Rams DST has proven to be plenty serviceable when it has a favorable matchup, which it does each of the next three weeks. The Raiders come to town in Week 13.


Steelers' Jarvis Jones returns to practice, opens 21-day window
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:53 am ET) Steelers outside linebacker Jarvis Jones will start practicing on Monday, according to the team's official website. Jones is on the short-term injured reserve list because of a wrist injury and will have 21-day window to be added to the 53-man active roster. If he's not activated by Dec. 15, he'll sit out the remainder of the season.

Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney 'somewhat' affected by knee injury
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:12 am ET) Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney told the Houston Chronicle following a Week 12 loss to Cincinnati that he's still being affected by a knee injury. Clowney finished with three tackles, including one for a loss on Sunday.

"Somewhat," Clowney said. "Some things are holding me back still but I'm just out here trying to do what I can do and have fun. You never know if you’re going to have an injury or not coming into the league. So when that happened to me, it was a setback. I'm just trying to do everything I need to do to get back to where I need to be to help the team out."


Good luck with Michael Floyd
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1:07 am ET) Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd caught two passes in Week 11, which at face value would give no one the impression he was back to form. But because both happened to go for touchdowns, including one of more than 40 yards, some of his owners couldn't be talked out of starting him Week 12 at Seattle. And those owners are filled with remorse right now.

That's because, with backup Drew Stanton again under center for the Cardinals, Floyd went without a single catch. He was targeted twice but failed to connect -- and with fellow wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald sidelined by a a sprained knee, no less.

That's the lowest of lows for him in what has been by and large a disappointing season. With this performance, he's averaging 2.1 catches for 28.9 yards over his last seven games. He's had a few touchdowns during that stretch to soften the blow, but ultimately, all they've done is given his owners false hope.

Unlike Fitzgerald, Floyd's production didn't improve for those five games when starting quarterback Carson Palmer was back from injury, and now Palmer is out for the year. Between Stanton's shortcomings and John Brown's emergence, you shouldn't be hoping for any sort of rebound from Floyd.


Giants K Josh Brown limited to extra points in Week 12
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:58 am ET) Giants kicker Josh Brown didn't attempt a field goal in his team's 31-28 loss to the Cowboys in Week 12 but managed to successfully convert all four of his extra-point tries.

It's the fifth time this season Brown hasn't received a field-goal attempt, and he's managed multiple attempts just twice in his 11 games this year. Brown will square off with the Jaguars in Week 13.


Keenan Allen turning over a new leaf?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12:56 am ET) For the second time this season, Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen topped 100 yards in a game Week 12 against St. Louis, and for the second time this season, he found the end zone, scoring on a 29-yard catch in the fourth quarter. It was the first time he did both in the same game, which was the kind of production Fantasy owners expected from him coming into the season.

So is he finally delivering on his potential? Oh, who knows?

Here are the positives for Allen: With another nine targets in Week 12, he has averaged 10.8 over his last five games, a clear improvement from his first six, and his primary competition for red-zone looks, tight end Antonio Gates, has been conspicuously absent the last three weeks.

Here are the negatives for Allen: Even with all those extra targets, he has still averaged just 69.0 yards over his last five games, and quarterback Philip Rivers has stopped throwing touchdown passes not just to Gates but in general.

I have enough confidence in Rivers and the Chargers offense as a whole to keep Allen on my roster, but I'm not activating him based on this performance.


Giants' Rueben Randle paces secondary targets in Week 12
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:55 am ET) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle caught all three of his targets for 36 yards in his team's 31-28 loss to the Cowboys in Week 12.

Eli Manning was locked in on rookie Odell Beckham (10 catches, 146 yards, two TDs) and running back Rashad Jennings (eight catches, 68 yards), and Randle was one of the quarterback's six other targeted receivers to split 11 catches. Tight end Daniel Fells also secured three receptions for 35 yards, while tight end Larry Donnell managed just two receptions for 24 yards. Wide receiver Preston Parker caught one of his three targets for 16 yards, while tight end Adrien Robinson caught his only target for a one-yard touchdown.

Randle, Parker and the team's TE corps should continue to play a complementary role behind Beckham moving forward. The Giants will take on the Jaguars in Week 13.


Giants RB Andre Williams scores touchdown in Week 12 loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:50 am ET) Giants running back Andre Williams rushed for 35 yards on 10 carries and a touchdown and added a 12-yard catch in his team's 31-28 loss to the Cowboys in Week 12.

Williams was out-touched 27-11 by starter Rashad Jennings but managed to bounce a carry to the right side late in the first half for a three-yard score. The touchdown was his third in his last four games, but he's still hovering around 3.0 yards per carry for the season. Williams will square off with the Jaguars in Week 13.


Giants RB Rashad Jennings totals 120 yards in Week 12 loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:47 am ET) Giants running back Rashad Jennings rushed for just 52 yards on 19 carries but caught eight of his 10 targets for 68 yards in his team's 31-28 loss to the Cowboys in Week 12.

Jennings drew the start and out-touched rookie Andre Williams 27-11 but watched his teammate score from three yards out in the second quarter. Despite averaging just 2.7 yards per carry, Williams was able to stay involved by being the second-most targeted receiver on the team. Though Jennings hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 3, his total yardage represented his best performance since rushing for 176 yards in his third game of the year. Jennings is set to face the Jaguars in Week 13.
