2013 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on May-28-2013 by Matt De Lima

How can Calvin Johnson improve upon a season where he caught 122 receptions for 1,964 yards? Well, he did only score five touchdowns, a number so small it seems like a joke thinking back to the crazy season Megatron had. Johnson more than tripled that total in 2011, catching 16 touchdowns. The NFL's top receiver could manage to score more points if he finds the end zone more often. He was actually brought down six times at the one-yard line. Johnson's average draft position has slipped toward the back half of the first round with teams scrambling to acquire RBs early. Don't let him slide past the seventh or eighth overall pick if you've got it.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
1.03 FFToolbox - Jamie Blackburn - After Peterson, the first round RBs are pretty much all the same to me. So, in a PPR format, I decided to scoop up the best WR on the board. Hopefully my RB depth does not suffer as a result.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
1.01 FFToolbox - According to our FFToolbox "Box Score" Calvin is the #1 player in the game in PPR formats for 2013. I'll take a stab that I can find the depth at RB later in the draft.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
1.07 BFDFantasy - I usually want to start with a stud RB but I LOVE MEGATRON in this format!
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
1.08 DraftSharks - Calvin obviously tops everyone's WR board. But if I could do this over, I'd take Ray Rice instead. I've skipped RB in the 1st 2 rounds twice recently, and neither left me comfy with the results. That said, I'd still take Calvin on the redo if Engel takes Rice instead of Lynch -- then perhaps make the tough decision to skip over Jimmy Graham in Round 2.
