Fantasy Football: Analyzing My No. 1 Pick in 10 Person Mock Draft

Fantasy Football: Analyzing My No. 1 Pick in 10 Person Mock Draft I am still on the fence about where I find I like to choose in fantasy football drafts. First pick is cool for obvious reasons, but waiting 19 more turns in a 10-person draft causes you to lose out on a lot of quality picks. Then, again, doubling up each turn has advantages.
Nevertheless, here are my results of being pick No. 1 in a 10-person fantasy football mock draft.   1.1   Jamaal Charles, RB, Kansas City Chiefs I know, others would have went LeSean McCoy with the first pick, but Charles, being with a run-first team, should keep bringing in the gold. It was too hard to pass on a guy with over 2,000 rushing and receiving yards combined last season. 2.10  Brandon Marshall, WR, Chicago Bears The dude just signed a major contract extension, so hopefully, he'll play hard to prove his worth. 3.1    Alfred Morris, RB, Washington Redskins I believe we're going to see Morris dominate the lead running responsibilities now that Coach Shanahan isn't around throwing in Roy Helu back and forth into the mix. Morris was awesome in 2012 and I see another season like that one on coming. 4.10  DeSean Jackson, WR, Washington Redskins I don't know about Super Bowl, but Jackson makes an incredible target for RGIII to spread out the wealth. He was a No. 1 WR for Philadelphia, and will surely be out to prove he hasn't lost his touch as he plays with another team. 5.1    Vernon Davis, TE, San Francisco 49ers Davis will remain a top target once again for Kaepernick, as the two of them should continue their chemistry. Plus, I've found waiting around to the end of the draft to pick a tight end doesn't always payoff like in past seasons with guys like Brandon Pettigrew, Tyler Eifert. When a tight end puts up better numbers than many WR's, why wait? 6.10  Rashad Jennings, RB, New York Giants Jennings was nothing but impressive when he filled in for Darren McFadden in Oakland last season. Additionally, the Giants running back situation is incredibly bleak with the iffy David Wilson on the mend. If Jennings take the lead, he should put up top 15 numbers in my opinion. 7.1    Cam Newton, QB, Carolina Panthers I really wanted Andrew Luck, but he was gone in the fifth round. However, Newton is durable, mobile and it should be fun to watch him with his new receivers. He also finished third in fantasy points last season, so I don't see him suddenly taking a major decline. 8.10  Golden Tate, WR, Detroit Lions I wouldn't have drafted Tate as a Seahawk, but now with Matthew Stafford throwing to him, there's definitely flex value in Tate. Johnson draws so much coverage, that Tate will get his fair share from a quarterback who throws as much as Stafford does. 9.1    Carolina Defense To take a defense early, or not is always a point of controversy.  Seattle was already taken, so in selecting Carolina, I never have to worry about my quarterback facing his opposite defense. Plus, the Panthers defense is quite brutal, so to me they were worth the pick in round nine. 10.10   LeGarrette Blount, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers At this point, I'm just increasing my running back depth. I also can't help but think the Steelers will put Blount in during third and fourth downs to pound the ball in. We all remember how well he did this in Patriots' playoffs last season, right? 11.1    Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Carolina Panthers Just having fun with this pick since I've got Newton as quarterback. These two could actually hit it off nicely in 2015. 12.10  Carlos Hyde, RB, San Francisco 49ers One of these days Frank Gore will slow down, so Hyde is just a handcuff for now. 13.1    Josh McCown, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers In case Cam isn't cutting it, I've got McCown waiting. For those who used McCown as Cutler's backup last year, you should remember the fantasy points rolling in the weeks McCown was playing. He could be effective as long as the Bucs don't switch into Mike Glennon gear. 14.10  Ladarius Green, TE, San Diego Chargers He's ready to fill Antonio Gates' shoes at anytime, and should becoming more involved in 2014. Green iis there just in case Davis goes down. 15.1    Dan Bailey, Kicker, Dallas Cowboys Bailey is one of my favorite kickers. Dallas moves the ball plenty, which always gives him multiple field goal opportunities during any given game. During the next few months, I'll be doing many more mock drafts from different positions, also expanding the number of team members participating in the draft.  I'll keep posting results as they will fluctuate, as we watch the players continue to practice, then eventually participate in their preseason games. Here are the overall results of this draft in case you want to evaluate mine against others. - May 31, 2013 -FFC
