2017 Fantasy Football Mock DraftPosted: May 2017
Scoring: This mock uses standard scoring and is for 2017 only (i.e., not keeper/dynasty leagues). Passing touchdowns are worth four points while rushing/receiving touchdowns are worth six points. In addition, one point is earned per 25 passing yards, 10 rushing yards or 10 receiving yards.
With the 2017 NFL Draft now behind us, we conducted our first Fantasy Football Mock Draft for the 2017 season.
Note: It's a "slow" draft so picks will be added as they occur with comments from Kevin Hanson (@EDSFootball).
Here is Round 12 of our 2017 Fantasy Football Mock Draft:
12.01. Sean Beazley III - Kenny Britt, WR, Cleveland Browns
Despite quarterback and offensive concerns with the Rams, Britt posted his first-ever 1,000-yard season with a 68/1,002/5 stat line in 2016. Even though Britt is going into his ninth season, the veteran receiver is still only 28 years old (turns 29 in September). Britt will have to deal with questionable quarterback play once again, but it's possible that he approaches his 2016 numbers once again.
12.02. Dan Yanotchko III - Allen Hurns, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
After his 64/1,031/10 season in 2015, Hurns had a disappointing and injury-plagued 2016 season as he finished with a 35/477/3 line. There are a number of concerns with Hurns in 2017. Not only did Marqise Lee become a bigger and more productive part of the offense last season, but the Jags should be more run-heavy than they've been with a top-four selection of Leonard Fournette.
12.03. Brendan Donahue III - Mike Wallace, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
Wallace had his first 1,000-yard season since 2011, but he scored only one touchdown after Week 2. Given the retirement of Steve Smith Sr. and that the Ravens were the fifth-most pass-happiest teams in the NFL, 60 Minutes is at least worth a flyer here in Round 12.
12.04. Kevin Hanson III - James White, RB, New England Patriots
The Patriots gave White a three-year extension this offseason and he had a career-high 60 receptions in 2016 with 14 receptions in the Super Bowl. Like with Dion Lewis and the other Patriots running backs, however, White will likely have plenty of week-to-week volatility.
12.05. Kevin Hanson II - Cameron Brate, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Brate broke out in his third NFL season with 57 catches for 660 yards and eight touchdowns, second on the team to only Mike Evans. Not only did the Bucs upgrade their No. 2 wide receiver by adding DeSean Jackson in free agency, the team used its first-round pick on tight end O.J. Howard. Even though rookie tight ends tend to struggle, Howard has an elite skill set and his presence puts a damper on Brate's outlook.
12.06. Brendan Donahue II - Marvin Jones, WR, Detroit Lions
On a positive note, Jones set a career high with 930 yards in his first season with the Lions. Unfortunately, his strong start (23/482/2) in the first quarter of the season was following by an incredibly disappointing three-quarters of a season.
12.07. Brendan Donahue I - Will Fuller, WR, Houston Texans
Fuller began his career with back-to-back 100-yard games and then everything went downhill from there. Of course, much of the problem with the passing offense can be attributed to Brock Osweiler, who's no longer in Houston. With either a rookie quarterback (Deshaun Watson) or inexperienced one (Tom Savage), the passing game may have some early-season struggles.
12.08. Sean Beazley II - Darren Sproles, RB, Philadelphia Eagles
Going into what should be his final season, Sproles returns as the team's change-of-pace back. The versatile back had 865 YFS, 52 receptions and four touchdowns last season.
12.09. Sean Beazley I - Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
With Doug Martin suspended for three more games, Rodgers should get the largest share of the workload for at least those three games. Beyond that, it's certainly possible that he gets more opportunities due to Martin's spotty durability track record.
12.10. Dan Yanotchko II - Zay Jones, WR, Buffalo Bills
With the questionable durability of Sammy Watkins, Jones could be in line for a big role if Watkins were to miss time. Watkins has played only 21 games over the past two seasons. Highly prolific in college (399/4,279/23), Jones showed well at the Senior Bowl and tested well at the combine.
12.11. Dan Yanotchko I - Taylor Gabriel, WR, Atlanta Falcons
Despite limited touches as a gadget-type player, Gabriel (5-8, 165) was a waiver-wire stud over the second half of last season. Due to his role, Gabriel is a boom-or-bust player going forward.
12.12. Kevin Hanson I - Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants
Finishing outside the top-20 fantasy quarterbacks (QB21) in 2016, Manning threw for 4,400-plus yards with 30-plus touchdowns and finished as a top-10 fantasy QB in each of the previous two seasons. With the addition of Brandon Marshall to the receiving corps and Evan Engram as essentially a big wide receiver, Manning has the most talented group of pass-catchers in his career.
