Draft Results

I’m very pleased with how my fantasy football drafts panned out thanks to our 2012 Fantasy Football Rankings. I was in two 10-team leagues. I had pick #8 in the first draft and pick #10 in the second draft. Here is how my rosters panned out.

Reaction:

I was actually looking forward to picking late since I wanted Jimmy Graham in round 2. Since I took Brees at #8 overall and CJ2K fell to #12, I had to take CJ2K who fell right into my lap. I had CJ2K ranked #9 overall.

As you can see, Torrey Smith is my mid-round sleeper. Get this guy if he’s around in round 8. I think he’s capabable of 1,000 yards and at least 6 TDs.  He put up 841 yards and 7 TDs as a rookie. He’s all the rave with the Ravens this offseason on how he’s developed as a receiver. Smith was just a deep man last year and this year he’s worked on becoming a more well-rounded receiver capable of running multiple routes. His hands have also improved. Smith has the potential to be a top 15 receiver.

Brandon LaFell is my last round sleeper. He comes into his 3rd season with Cam Newton throwing him the ball. 613 yards and 3 TDs last season… a guy I can see increase his numbers to 800-900 yards and 5 TDs.

I was thrilled with taking Antonio Gates in round 5 after taking CJ2K over Gronk or Graham. All reports indicate that Gates’ foot injury is water under the bridge and that Gates is coming into this season 100% for the first time in 3 years. Gates has the potential to be the 3rd best TE in the league this year and will be up there with Gronkowski and Graham in the stats.
