Ben Liebenberg NFL Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is back in the first two rounds of our three-round mock draft. The 2009 NFL offseason has been rampant with player movement, as prominent fantasy names such as Matt Cassel, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Terrell Owens and Kellen Winslow have all changed addresses and uniforms. Some of these moves have had a direct impact on how the first three rounds of fantasy football drafts will look for next season. As always, each numbered position represents an individual fantasy team, so no more than one quarterback, two running backs or two wide receivers will be selected for each roster. The draft is based on NFL's standard scoring system, rewarding one point for each 25 passing yards, 10 rushing and receiving yards and six points for touchdowns. Mock draft 1.0 Round 1 Team Player Analysis Minnesota Vikings 1. Adrian Peterson Running back Peterson's name will remain atop these mock drafts right through August. He might have scored an unimpressive 10 touchdowns last season, but A.P. led the NFL with 1,760 rushing yards and still hasn't hit his ceiling in terms of fantasy value. He's a talented and elusive runner with a tremendous offensive line ahead of him, so Peterson should continue to thrive in an offense that will lean on him a lot. Team Player Analysis Atlanta Falcons 2. Michael Turner Running back Turner is coming off a breakout season, rushing for 1,699 yards and 17 touchdowns as the centerpiece of the Falcons offense. While he did finish with close to 400 combined carries, Turner is still young and fresh enough to handle another heavy workload and post solid numbers. The Burner will be a surefire top-three selection in 2009. Team Player Analysis Jacksonville Jaguars 3. Maurice Jones-Drew Running back Jones-Drew's days of being underrated are over. He's averaged 49 receptions, 1,314 scrimmage yards and close to 13 total touchdowns in three NFL seasons,Akeem Ayers Rams Jersey, and he'll now be the featured back in Jacksonville after the release of Fred Taylor (Patriots). Jones-Drew will also be motivated to produce monster numbers in a contract year. Team Player Analysis Carolina Panthers 4. DeAngelo Williams Running back Fantasy leaguers who think Williams will score 20 touchdowns again are bound to be disappointed, but he's still a solid bet for around 1,300 rushing yards and 12-15 scores. He did fall one spot from my previous mock draft, but Williams remains a top-four selection in a Carolina offense that will continue to lean on the run in 2009. Team Player Analysis Chicago Bears 5. Matt Forte Running back Forte was a huge draft value last season, breaking out to the tune of 1,715 scrimmage yards and 12 total touchdowns. The Bears do want to decrease his workload next season (he accounted for around 80 percent of the running back fullback carries in 2008),Cory Redding Colts Jersey, but Forte will still see plenty of time on the field. He's a solid choice in all leagues. Team Player Analysis Tennessee Titans 6. Chris Johnson Running back Much like Forte, Johnson exploded onto the scene as a rookie and helped countless owners to a championship. He ended the season with 1,228 rushing yards and nine touchdowns despite seeing just 53 percent of the Titans' running back fullback carries. Johnson is fast and elusive, and he's slated to see an even bigger role in the offense. Team Player Analysis Philadelphia Eagles 7. Brian Westbrook Running back I have to admit it, I'm a little worried about Westbrook in 2009. He'll be 30 to start the season, and we've already started to see signs of wear and tear on his problematic knees. Westbrook is versatile, talented and offers added value in PPR leagues, however, so he'll be hard to pass on in the first round. Still, this will be a risk-reward selection. Team Player Analysis San Francisco 49ers 8. Frank Gore Running back Gore showed flashes of his impressive 2006 form last season,Kroy Biermann Falcons Jersey, but injuries limited him to 14 games and hurt his value down the stretch. But in what promises to be a run-based offense under coordinator Jimmy Raye, Gore will remain prominent in the offense. He's still young (25) and doesn't share carries, which is also an advantage. Team Player Analysis Dallas Cowboys 9. Marion Barber Running back I'm a huge fan of Barber and would have him ranked ahead of Gore and Westbrook if it weren't for the presence of both Felix Jones and Tashard Choice. In fact, reports out of Dallas suggest he could lose his starting role to Jones and be used as a closer, a role he thrived in from 2006-2007. A versatile back, Barber is still a No. 1 option. Team Player Analysis St. Louis Rams 10. Steven Jackson Running back Despite missing four games due to injuries, Jackson still finished with 40 catches,Cheap Jerseys From China, 1,421 scrimmage yards and eight total touchdowns in 2008. The Rams will use a West Coast offense under coordinator Pat Shurmur, so Jackson should be able to use his immense skills as a pass catcher. He's too talented not to be a first rounder. Team Player Analysis Houston Texans 11. Steve Slaton Running back While his lack of size (5-9, 203 pounds) was seen as a concern, Slaton disproved the critics as the top runner in Houston. He finished with 50 catches, 1,659 scrimmage yards and 10 total touchdowns, so his value in 2009 will be immense. If the Texans add a short-yardage or goal-line back, however, Slaton could lose some of his luster. Team Player Analysis Washington Redskins 12. Clinton Portis Running back Portis was the best running back in fantasy football for much of 2008, so it's hard to keep him out of the top 12 in drafts. But be warned, his 342 carries and a multitude of injuries down the stretch could be a red flag that a physical break down is on the horizon. Portis could even be paired with another running back and see fewer carries in 2009. Round 2 Team Player Analysis San Diego Chargers 13. LaDainian Tomlinson Running back Tomlinson, who will be 30 at the start of next season, appears to be on the downside of his Hall-of-Fame career. He's still capable of putting up big numbers at times, but he wasn't at all consistent in 2008 and could lose some work to Darren Sproles this season. Tomlinson should be considered no more than a No. 2 fantasy back. Team Player Analysis New Orleans Saints 14. Drew Brees Quarterback Brees is coming off a monster season, throwing for 5,069 yards and 34 touchdowns. He led all players on NFL with 363 fantasy points, and he's the lone non-running back who's worthy of first-round consideration in all standard leagues. Brees is consistent, reliable and will be the most coveted signal-caller in most fantasy drafts. Team Player Analysis Arizona Cardinals 15. Larry Fitzgerald Wide receiver The top wide receiver in fantasy football,Bernard Pierce Jaguars Jersey, Fitzgerald is almost certain to come off the board in the second round of most drafts. He's been ultra-consistent, productive and might the best player at his position in the game right now. With Kurt Warner coming back after signing a two-year deal, Fitzgerald's value in fantasy circles will remain prominent. Team Player Analysis Houston Texans 16. Andre Johnson Wide receiver Johnson, who could be selected ahead of Fitzgerald in some drafts, is coming off a career season with 115 receptions, an NFL-best 1,575 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. He's a younger version of Terrell Owens and an absolute nightmare for opposing defensive backs. Barring injuries, he'll continue to produce for fantasy leaguers. Team Player Analysis Detroit Lions 17. Calvin Johnson Wide receiver Johnson played on the NFL's first winless team and had to adapt to several different quarterbacks, but he still had 78 receptions, 1,331 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2008. Regardless of who is under center for the Lions, whether's it's Daunte Culpepper or Matt Stafford, Megatron is a virtual lock to come off the board in the second round. Team Player Analysis New England Patriots 18. Tom Brady Quarterback Brady continues to rehab his surgically-repaired knee during the offseason, but the trade of Matt Cassel to the Chiefs shows that the Patriots are confident he'll be under center in Week 1. That deal moved Brady to second on NFL's quarterback rankings behind Brees and into the second round of our latest mock fantasy draft. Team Player Analysis New York Giants 19. Brandon Jacobs Running back Jacobs produced career rushing bests across the board in 2008, finishing with 1,089 yards and an impressive 15 touchdowns. The Giants have lost Derrick Ward (Buccaneers), so Jacobs should be in line to see more carries next season. Even though he's prone to injury, Jacobs is still well worth selecting in the second round. Team Player Analysis Buffalo Bills 20. Marshawn Lynch Running back Despite missing one game due to injuries and losing some time in the backfield to Fred Jackson, Lynch still saw increases in receptions, scrimmage yards and total touchdowns in his second NFL season. A potential league-imposed suspension could affect his value going forward, but for now I see Lynch as a second-round selection. Team Player Analysis Indianapolis Colts 21. Joseph Addai Running back Addai was an enormous bust in 2008 and will now be seen as a risk-reward draft selection in all drafts. His YPC average has fallen in each of his three NFL seasons, and that's a bad sign for the future. Addai is still a young back at 25 and is by no means finished, but the confidence fantasy leaguers had in his after 2007 has certainly faded. Team Player Analysis New England Patriots 22. Randy Moss Wide receiver Moss experienced statistical decreases across the board in 2008, as the Patriots offense was less explosive without Brady. However, his expected return for the team's regular-season opener has increased Moss' value in fantasy football. He won't duplicate his record-breaking 2007 numbers,Richard Rodgers Packers Jersey, but Moss is now a surefire No. 1 option once again. Team Player Analysis Arizona Cardinals 23. Anquan Boldin Wide receiver Boldin finished last season with 89 receptions, 1,038 yards and 11 touchdowns, and he did it in just 12 games. While he does tend to miss time with injuries, Boldin is simply too talented not to come off the board in the third round. Unless he's traded during the offseason, the Florida State product will be a coveted second-round selection. Team Player Analysis Indianapolis Colts 24. Peyton Manning Quarterback Manning is coming off what some would call a down season, throwing for just over 4,000 yards and 27 touchdowns. But this future Hall of Famer will enter 2009 at 100 percent (he had knee issues to start 2008), and the talent around him will remain solid. He's a virtual lock for 4,000 passing yards and around 30 total touchdowns. Round 3 Team Player Analysis Detroit Lions 25. Kevin Smith Running back I see Smith as a serious breakout candidate in 2009. He was a star at the end of his rookie season with nine catches, 329 scrimmage yards and three touchdowns in his last three starts. New coach Jim Schwartz will no doubt lean on the run, so Smith should see more than his share of chances even with Maurice Morris in the mix. Team Player Analysis Miami Dolphins 26. Ronnie Brown Running back Brown found himself in a backfield committee with Ricky Williams, but he still rushed for close to 1,000 yards and scored 10 touchdowns. While the shared workload hurts his level of consistent production, Brown is still a viable No. 2 fantasy back. He'll also have one full season under his belt after a reconstructive knee procedure. Team Player Analysis Carolina Panthers 27. Steve Smith Wide receiver Smith, who was suspended for the first two games of last season, still finished with 78 receptions and a career-best 1,421 yards. Despite his lack of size, he's still a terror for opposing defensive backs and will remain prominent in Carolina's pass attack. Imagine the numbers he would post with someone like Peyton Manning as his quarterback? Team Player Analysis Denver Broncos 28. Brandon Marshall Wide receiver While he was inconsistent at times, Marshall still finished with career bests in receptions and was a solid option in PPR formats. The addition of new coach Josh McDaniels is a positive, as is the emergence of quarterback Jay Cutler. However, a significant league-imposed suspension could make Marshall far less attractive in drafts. Team Player Analysis Indianapolis Colts 29. Reggie Wayne Wide receiver Wayne saw his reception, yardage and touchdowns totals fall last season compared to his impressive 2007 numbers. Still, he did post 82 receptions and close to 1,150 yards as the top option for Manning in the Colts' pass attack. With Marvin Harrison now out of the mix, Wayne should see a rise in both production and fantasy draft value. Team Player Analysis Denver Broncos 30. Jay Cutler Quarterback Despite the public rift with McDaniels, Cutler is likely to remain with the Broncos in 2009. A talented quarterback with a cannon right arm, Cutler posted career highs in yards and total touchdowns last season,Erick Pulgar Chile Jersey, and he still has room for statistical improvement. If he loses Marshall for a long period of time, though, Cutler's stock will fall in all formats. Team Player Analysis Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31. Derrick Ward Running back Despite seeing just 182 carries, Ward posted 1,025 rushing yards (5.6 YPC) last season with the Giants. Now the favorite to start for the Buccaneers, the versatile Ward has seen his stock rise in fantasy circles. While his touchdowns totals could be limited with Earnest Graham on the field, Ward will still be a viable No. 2 fantasy back. Team Player Analysis Dallas Cowboys 32. Tony Romo Quarterback Romo did have a down year from a fantasy perspective in 2008, but injuries and an impossible schedule down the stretch were partially to blame. When healthy, he threw three touchdown passes in four of his first six starts. Romo did lose some of his luster when the Cowboys released Owens, but he's still a solid No. 1 fantasy quarterback. Team Player Analysis New York Jets 33. Thomas Jones Running back Jones finished fifth in fantasy points among running backs on NFL last season, but it's doubtful that he'll be that productive again in 2009. With Brett Favre out of the mix, defenses will have a much easier time stopping Jones and the Jets' ground attack. What's more, the veteran will be 31 before the start of next season. Team Player Analysis New Orleans Saints 34. Pierre Thomas Running back The Saints released Deuce McAllister this offseason, so it looks like Thomas will be the main man in the backfield in 2009. However,Meliton Hernandez Mexico Jersey, his stock would fall if the team added a power running back in the NFL Draft. As it stands, Thomas should be seen as a No. 2 fantasy back based on the immense success he had down the stretch last season. Team Player Analysis Green Bay Packers 35. Greg Jennings Wide receiver Jennings might not be the sexiest pick at the wide receiver position, but it's hard to ignore his numbers over the past two seasons. The favorite target of Aaron Rodgers, Jennings finished with career bests in receptions and yards in 2008. A consistent and productive option across the board, Jennings is a surefire No. 1 fantasy wideout. Team Player Analysis Atlanta Falcons 36. Roddy White Wide receiver In what was a bizarre fantasy season, White scored more fantasy points on NFL than Moss,Andrei Vasilevskiy Jersey Russia, Owens, Smith and Wayne. With the emergence of Matt Ryan and in an offense that's well balanced with Turner in the backfield, the athletic White should continue to be a solid source of fantasy points. Consider him a low-end No. 1 option.
