2010 Fantasy Football Mock Draft Round 12

11 of 13 Rounds are in the books.  We are coming down the home stretch.

Here are the previous rounds:

Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3 | Round 4 | Round 5 | Round 6 | Round 7 | Round 8 | Round 9 | Round 10 | Round 11 |

Round 12 with commentary follows:

12.01 San Diego Chargers (jzak)

True to my defensive drafting strategy post, I waited to the next-to-last round for my defensive unit and drafted a defense that has arguably the easiest schedule this season.

12.02 Roy Williams, DAL WR (ep)

He may not have been able to cut it as a No. 1, but Williams as a No. 3? Sign me up.

12.03 Mark Sanchez (consigliere)

I’ll grab Sanchez here, he should have a pretty good season and will be a great bye week fill in for my team. Normally i would check the bye week and pick a qb that has a favorable match up on the bye week of my ace, but in this case ill take someone who has good weapons and is poised to break out.

12.04 Zach Miller (OAK) (sockonfl)

Zach Miller is a nice darkhorse candidate at the tight end position for 2010 with Jason Campbell as his QB. Since Cooley is a little questionable I figured I would add my additional depth here since he was still available.

12.05 – Jermaine Gresham (jay-mo)

TEs don’t typically break-out in their rookie year, but Gresham looks to get plenty of targets this season. His blocking will be a concern, but there doesn’t appear to be stiff competition against him for playing time. So far this preseason, Carson Palmer has made an effort to work Gresham into the game. With the tandem of WRs the Bengals have, Gresham should have plenty of room to work the middle and underneath zone defenses.

You never know, if the Bengals catch fire and the Eagles struggle with a new QB, Greshan may end up being the better play than Celek in the final stretches of the fantasy season. That would make this pick a beauty …

12.06 Baltimore Ravens Defense (jzak)

Staying true to my defensive strategy post here.

12.07 New Orleans Saints (speedy)

Arguably the best defense remaining.

12.08-Kareem Huggins (ryder)

Huggins is now the number 2 back on Tampa’s depth chart.He could see some playing time with Williams injury history.

12.09 — Nate Kaeding, SDC (krause)

I have faith that the position player I’m looking at will be available in the last round.

Arguably the most consistent kicker in the NFL, Kaeding has amazing accuracy and range. Also San Diego is a second half of the season team. At least I know my kicker will score me some points come playoff time.

12.10 Stephen Gostkowski (consigliere)

I’ll take a kicker here i know its not the best thing to do before the last round but i am sure i can find another position player and i get a jump on the next couple people that are picking.

12.11 Dallas Cowboys defense (ep)

Because I need to pick a defense. Surprised Dallas is still available. Their linebacking corps is loaded with talented playmakers.

12.12 Bernard Berrian (sockonfl)

Might as well take a chance he becomes Favre’s 2010 go to guy with Rice out and Harvin with his headache problems.

    Since my league had 16 rounds, I’ll list the remainder here along with Round 12.

    12th round, I started accumulating my receiver stash. In Denver, Gaffney is the best mix of reliability and ability in the WR position right now and should be in line for 60-70 catches. If so, he’ll be a good guy to rotate into the WR3/4 slot.

    13th round, I continued the WR quest with Davone Bess. He’s the #2 behind Brandon Marshall, which should make for some good one-on-one matchups.

    14th round, I went with San Diego’s defense. Nothing exciting here, just needing to fill a roster.

    15th round, I went with Matt Prater as I knew that kickers were being targeted and that no one would pick my final player.

    16th and final round, Legedu Naanee will have a big impact with Vincent Jackson out at least 3 weeks, possibly 6. Even better, there is trade talk going on – best scenario for me, that or him getting cut would suffice. Rivers trusts Naanee, and so do I.

    1.05 Frank Gore
    2.08 Shonn Greene
    3.05 Larry Fitzgerald
    4.08 Steve Smith
    5.05 Vernon Davis
    6.08 Wes Welker
    7.05 Joe Flacco
    8.08 Jerome Harrison
    9.05 Laurence Maroney
    10.08 Donald Brown
    11.05 Braylon Edwards
    12.08 Jabar Gaffney
    13.05 Davone Bess
    14.08 San Diego
    15.05 Matt Prater
    16.08 Legedu Naanee

    So how did my draft turn out?

    Anyone?

    @CJones: Sorry, didn’t see your comment from last week.
    Nice team. I’m not a fan of Maroney, Brown or Edwards, but they are all backups behind a stacked starting group.
    I’m big on Gaffney, too, and Welker could be a steal late in the sixth.
    Harrison could be huge in the eighth with Hardesty out of the picture.

    @ep: Thanks for the assessment. As for Maroney, Brown and Edwards, who should I target in trades?
