Tom Terrific is jacked up to play for Team Behrens in 2013 (USAT)
When Mr. Irrelevant, Justice Cunningham, had his name called Saturday, the fantasy football mock season officially got underway. To kick off Yahoo!'s festivities, we'll mock two rounds per day Tuesday-Friday (12-teams, PPR scoring, w/one FLEX) to help you get educated on which players will be valued/undervalued when the bulk of the draft season begins in August. Please declare a winner and/or express your general disdain for our 'stupidity' in the comments section below.

Marques Colston, WR, New Orleans Saints (PK49, WR18) - This fantasy roster will pair Colston with Drew Brees, which usually works well. Marques has delivered three straight 80-catch, 1,000-yard seasons. Vincent Jackson and Jordy Nelson were under consideration here, too; the goal was simply to get someone from their tier. – Behrens 1
Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots (PK50, QB6) - I'd intended to wait on quarterback with this team, but, well ... c'mon. Someone needed to take Brady, just to maintain the integrity of the mock. I realize his tight ends are dinged and his wideouts are new, but I'd still be shocked if we didn't get another 4,400-plus yards and 30 TDs from Tom, with very few negative plays. – Behrens 2
Jordy Nelson, WR, Green Bay Packers (PK51, WR19) – Be it a hamstring, ankle, knee or foot injury, Nelson never quite seemed to reach 100 percent in '12, but he still managed 7 TD in 11 games, and Greg Jennings' exit just means a bigger piece of the ample passing pie in Green Bay.
