06/03/2013 12:05 Offseason Extra: 12-team, PPR mock draft
There are plenty of differences between standard and PPR leagues. But how much should you invest in receivers early on Draft Day? Get some answers in this PPR mock draft.
Chris Ivory has been freed from the Saints' depth chart, landing with the Jets in a draft weekend trade. He's expected to handle a large amount of carries as the team's primary ball carrier and goal-line force. Ivory has a 5.1 rushing average and scored two touchdowns over 40 carries last year, both coming on long, powerful runs. Ivory could be in line for 15 touches of week with the Jets and will grind behind one of the better run-blocking lines in football. There's some appeal for Ivory as a No. 3 running back, making him a good mid-round option in seasonal leagues. (Updated 5/15/13)
