Fantasy Football Mock Draft: Analyzing 6th Pick of 12 Teams
June 8, 2014
Here are my selections at picking sixth in a 12-team fantasy football mock draft.
1.6 Eddie Lacy RB Green Bay Packers
Lacy in just his second year in the NFL, should continue to be a strong workhorse and the primary ball rusher for the Packers. I see RB1 numbers on a consistent basis.
Eddie Lacy had the 8th most rushing yards in NFL, 10th best ypa among top 10 rushers. Yep, that's an All-Pro right there.

2.7 Julio Jones, WR Atlanta Falcons
Obviously, I’d only draft when he gets his clean bill of health, but assuming that will be the case, Jones should be a solid WR1 each week.
3.6 Zac Stacy, RB St. Louis Rams
I love the numbers Stacy put up last year in the 14 games he started for the Rams; 973 yards and seven touchdowns on 250 carries. He’s young and should be full of dynamite again in 2014.
4.7 Vernon Davis, TE SF 49ers
Coming off of 13 touchdowns and 850 yards, the Davis and Kaepernick chemistry should continue to thrive.
5.6 T.Y. Hilton, WR Indianapolis Colts
Hilton started off a bit slow last season, but started to go wild towards the end and was awesome in the Colts’ playoffs. Luck and the Colts have one of the easiest schedules in 2014, which means more catches and touchdowns for Hilton.
6.7 Darren Sproles, RB Philadelphia Eagles
Hopefully, Sproles will remain a sold flex option this year as he starts with his new team, whether it’s through pass catching or rushing. At the least, he’ll be used to keep McCoy fresh.
7.6 Golden Tate, WR Detroit Lions
Tate has a new appeal now that he’s with a team where his quarterback will pass upwards of 5,000 yards. At the hands of Matthew Stafford, Tate should get quite a bit of action as defenses are busy trying to put the brakes on Calvin Johnson.
8.7 Colin Kaepernick, QB SF 49ers
The quarterbacks were starting to thin, so my best choices were between Kaepernick and Tony Romo in the eigth round. Let’s just hope Kaepernick’s fat, new paycheck has him vying to prove his value, thus rewarding his fantasy owners QB1 numbers in most weeks.
9.6 Mike Evans, WR Tampa Bay Buccaneers
I’m usually hesitant to take a flyer on a rookie, but the 6′-5″ Evans with nearly 1,400 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns could be a sleeper in waiting.
10.7 Christine Michael, RB Seattle Seahawks
Well, now that news has broken that the Seahawks plan to use a running back committee in 2014, Michael is worth a stash to see exactly how much work the team plans to give him.
11.6 Josh McCown, QB Tampa Bay Buccaneers
McCown makes an excellent backup on those weeks that Kaepernick is stuck playing tougher defenses. In fact, McCown, if he plays like he did while covering for Jay Cutler last year, could make a great late-round starter most weeks.
12.7 Kansas City Chiefs DEF
Wanted to choose an above-average defense before the pickings got any slimmer.
13.6 Marvin Jones, WR Cincinnati Bengals
At this point, just adding to my WR depth, and Jones had sporadic bouts of greatness last season.
14.7 Ladarius Green, TE San Diego Chargers
Just drafted in case Davis gets injured. Green should keep seeing more action as veteran tight end, Antonio Gates slows down.

15.6 Matt Bryant, Kicker Atlanta Falcons
He’s a kicker, and every team needs one. :)
