2012 Fantasy Football Draft: Forum 2-QB Fantasy Mock Draft




July 17, 2012.

This is a 2012 Fantasy Football 2-QB Mock Draft I took part in with 11 other members of the forum. As usual, I'll have analysis of my picks, as well as the best and worst selections from each two rounds.

Just a heads up that we have 2012 Fantasy Football Mock Drafts every Wednesday evening. Check out the fantasy mock draft thread for details.

Oh, and you can see our chat log here.




MY PICKS, ROUNDS 1-2: If you didn't notice the header, this is a 2-QB fantasy mock draft. That's why I picked Tony Romo ninth overall. It was a really tough decision between Romo and Chris Johnson. I chose the former because I was afraid there was going to be a run of quarterbacks between 1.10 and 2.03, and there was. Even Ben Roethlisberger was selected.

I wasn't going to reach again at 2.04. Maurice Jones-Drew and Larry Fitzgerald were just way too good to pass up.

BEST PICKS, ROUNDS 1-2: Fitzgerald, obviously. Drew Brees is a steal at No. 7 overall in a 2-QB league. Andre Johnson provided great value at 2.10.

WORST PICKS, ROUNDS 1-2: I understand that some owners were scared of no quarterbacks being available to them in Round 3, so I'm not going to criticize the Ben Roethlisberger, Peyton Manning, Robert Griffin or even QB Dog Killer selections.

The worst choice is DeMarco Murray. In a 2-QB league, the first two picks must be a quarterback (or two quarterbacks) and a safe stud. Murray is anything but safe.



MY PICKS, ROUNDS 3-4: I was shocked when I saw that Greg Jennings was available at 3.09. If Jennings weren't there, I would have gone with Matt Schaub, so I'm obviously happy with my 4.04 pick.

BEST PICKS, ROUNDS 3-4: Rob Gronkowski is a mega steal at 3.04. The same can be said for Hakeem Nicks (3.06) and Julio Jones (3.12). Dez Bryant was the best pick of the fourth round.

WORST PICKS, ROUNDS 3-4: Jimmy Graham before Rob Gronkowski? Not so sure about that. I think Wes Welker was taken too early as well, given that this is a standard-scoring mock draft. Boss Hog Lou's No. 3 team - he had two because he was logged in through his phone and computer - doesn't have a quarterback yet, which is not good.




MY PICKS, ROUNDS 5-6: I have two quarterbacks on my roster, so I could afford to go best player available each time, per my 2012 Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet for 2-QB Formats. I like Ahmad Bradshaw toward the end of the fifth, while the No. 3 fantasy tight end was a steal in Round 6.

BEST PICKS, ROUNDS 5-6: I really like Percy Harvin this year, so Kaiser made a great selection at 5.02. Miles Austin was a nice acquisition three picks later. Another receiver, Jeremy Maclin, provided terrific value at 6.11.

As for the running backs, I like Adrian Peterson as a gamble in Round 5. He won't last that long in regular leagues, however, because someone will take him in Round 2 of any format. WORST PICKS, ROUNDS 5-6: Boss Hogg Lou's No. 3 team is stuck with Andy Dalton as its QB1. Ouch. Sam Bradford was also a reach in the middle of the sixth round.

Not that these are bad picks or anything, but check out Ragnarok's fantasy roster. He has Jay Cutler, Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall (Bears) and Drew Brees, Darren Sproles and Marques Colston (all Saints). Quite impressive, though he's definitely going to lose in Week 6.



MY PICKS, ROUNDS 7-8: More best players available. I have Darrius Heyward-Bey ranked higher than Antonio Brown, but I went with the latter because I thought there was more of a chance that DHB would come back to me. And he did - except I noticed James Starks was available and I liked the idea of obtaining an RB3.

BEST PICKS, ROUNDS 7-8: I was praying for Tim Tebow to fall to me in the seventh round. He'd be an ideal QB3 because he'll probably be starting by the time I have to use him (for byes or injuries). In the meantime, he'll score rushing touchdowns.

Elsewhere, I liked the Jahvid Best and Chris Wells selections. Both provide decent value in the Round 7-8 range.

WORST PICKS, ROUNDS 7-8: Alex Smith is Boss Hogg Lou No. 10's second starting quarterback. That's not good. He probably should have gone with Carson Palmer or someone like that at 6.03. I also didn't like his team No. 3's choice of Peyton Hillis, since he took a backup running back over some starters still available like Shonn Greene and Mark Ingram.




MY PICKS, ROUNDS 9-10: I only had two receivers up until this point, so I almost had to go with two in these rounds. Denarius Moore and Titus Young are a pair of second-year players who could explode in 2012.

BEST PICKS, ROUNDS 9-10: I mentioned Darrius Heyward-Bey as a possibility at 8.04, so I have to love him at 9.02. Malcom Floyd (9.04), Jonathan Stewart (9.06), Santana Moss (9.11), Michael Bush (9.12) and Stevan Ridley (10.11) were all very nice selections.

WORST PICKS, ROUNDS 9-10: You know, I don't dislike any pick in this round. If I absolutely had to choose, it would be Matt Cassel, only because he's... well... Matt Cassel.



MY PICKS, ROUNDS 11-12: David Wilson wasn't one of the top players available, but it seemed like a good idea to obtain Ahmad Bradshaw's handcuff so that I can benefit from whatever happens to New York's backfield. Alex Green, meanwhile, is one of my favorite late-round sleepers because he'll start for the Packers if the injury-prone James Starks goes down.

BEST PICKS, ROUNDS 11-12: Brandon Pettigrew is a great find at the beginning of the 11th round. He went much earlier in a recent Fantasy Football Mock Draft.

Another Lion, Mikel Leshoure, is also a nice pick. My favorite of these two rounds is Mark Ingram. He's the starter on the Saints. He might get hurt, but he's currently penciled in to get the most carries.

WORST PICKS, ROUNDS 11-12: I've bashed Mike Williams and Randy Moss - two lazy receivers - far too often this summer. You know what I'm going to say by now.




MY PICKS, ROUNDS 13-15: Yes, a kicker in the 13th round. I normally would have taken a defense there, but two of the teams going after this selection and before my next one had defenses, so I just opted for the kicker. However, after seeing two quarterbacks fly off the board, I decided to obtain a third quarterback. John Skelton is the best quarterback in Arizona, so I'd rather have him over Kevin Kolb. And finally, the Cardinals battle the Seahawks at home in Week 1.

BEST PICKS, ROUNDS 13-15: Randall Cobb is another favorite late-round sleeper of mine. Meanwhile, Pierre Thomas could start if Mark Ingram goes down, making him a great Mr. Irrelevant.

WORST PICKS, ROUNDS 13-15: Not that this is a bad pick in the final round of a 2-QB league, but I find it amusing that Blaine Gabbert went after several backup quarterbacks. He sucks that much. But I guess he's even worth picking in this format.




My Fantasy Team:

QB - Tony Romo, Cowboys
QB - Matt Schaub, Texans
RB - Maurice Jones-Drew, Jaguars
RB - Ahmad Bradshaw, Giants
WR - Greg Jennings, Packers
WR - Antonio Brown, Steelers
RB/WR - James Starks, Packers RB
TE - Antonio Gates, Chargers
K - Sebastian Janikowski, Raiders
DEF -

BN - Denarius Moore, Raiders WR
BN - Titus Young, Lions WR
BN - David Wilson, Giants RB
BN - Alex Green, Packers RB
BN - John Skelton, Cardinals QB

I actually really like this team. I have two very good quarterbacks, a big-time running back, a stud receiver, a top-three tight end and several other quality players. I'm screwed if either Tony Romo or Matt Schaub goes down, but I think most people in this league can say that about their quarterbacking situation.

Last year I won a 2QB PPR league with Cam Newton and a carousel of Curtis Painter, Andy Dalton, and Dan Orlovsky. In that order. As well as starting Chris Obbanaya for the latter half of the season and playoffs
