Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

A lot has changed from the start of training camp until now. There have been devastating injuries, guys winning jobs and just overall differences of opinions on certain players.

Many of you will spend Labor Day weekend doing your draft or getting in your final few hours of preparation for the real thing. With that in mind, here's another 12-team standard mock draft for you to mull over.

This draft was done prior to the final preseason game and reflects the latest news, including Eddie Lacy locking up the Packers' No. 1 running back spot, Ryan Mathews running like we expected last season for the Chargers and Montee Ball looking like the leader in the backfield for the Broncos.

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 and one point for every 25 yards passing. There also is one point per 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 six reserve spots for a 15-round draft.
