Ovr Pick Franchise Selection Pos. Team Age Exp.
1 1.03 FootballGuys.com LeSean McCoy RB BUF 26 3
Very close to Ray Rice as the RB1/RB2 debate in all formats, especially PPR. McCoy is a key part of the high powered Philadelphia offense and he gets more than his fair share of touches and TDs even with Vick running at QB. Despite two rookies added in Philly, he remains the top back by a wide margin.
2 2.10 FootballGuys.com Rob Gronkowski TE NE 25 2
Gronkowski was a force among many big tight end performances in 2011. He has the unique combination of size, speed and receiving skills that make him too difficult for a normal linebacker or safety to cover one on one. He scored 17 touchdowns, a number that is likely to not be replicated but even if he scored "only" 10 he still would have been the top TE last year. Take him as the top tight end in all formats.
3 3.03 FootballGuys.com Greg Jennings WR MIN 31 6
Jennings is one of the top two targets along with Jordy Nelson in the Packers offense. The good news is that there is plenty of room for both to be stud WRs for Aaron Rodgers, as the ground game is less than average. Expect another huge year for both wideouts. The concussion issue doesn't bother me at all.
4 4.10 FootballGuys.com Reggie Bush RB --- 30 6
Reggie Bush had his best rushing season ever in the NFL last year for Miami, averaging five yards per carry and topping 1,000 yards on the ground. His touchdowns (six) and receptions (43) were a little more modest than you would want from a top running back, but the Dolphins have said that they want to use him more, especially as a receiver. With a young quarterback in Ryan Tannehill about to take over, playmakers with speed will be valuable. Daniel Thomas, the backup to Bush, also has not shown much which elevates Bush to a stable starting tailback.
5 5.03 FootballGuys.com DeSean Jackson WR WAS 28 4
The Eagles have a high-powered passing game, and the flashy DeSean Jackson often overshadows the consistent performances of Jeremy Maclin. Jackson is the home run hitter who doesn't always connect every week, making Maclin the safer fantasy WR2 - but if you want big play potential and punt return options then DeSean is your guy. In best ball - big play players are your friend, so DeSean it is!
6 6.10 FootballGuys.com Jonathan Stewart RB CAR 27 4
Purely looking for TD opportunities here. I think the Panthers will try and protect Newton more, giving the rock to Stewart at the goal line.
7 7.03 FootballGuys.com Reggie Wayne WR IND 36 11
Savvy veteran wide receiver who is the Colts #1 guy, and he has a good QB again in Luck. Garbage time counts too :)
8 8.10 FootballGuys.com Robert Griffin III QB WAS 25 R
Hard to believe that the "experts" are taking QB2s in Round 7 and 8 of a 4pt per pass league, but whatever... I will take a young QB who could run for several TDs this year, giving him Cam Newton upside.
9 9.03 FootballGuys.com Santonio Holmes WR --- 31 6
Another WR where you would hate to have him in a weekly lineup, but in best ball? Sure, since he should be good for 7 or 8 TDs.
10 10.10 FootballGuys.com Brent Celek TE PHI 30 5
In a best ball league, I'll gamble here that he will be a value as a likely starter once he returns to the Lions after a short suspension.
11 11.03 FootballGuys.com Mikel Leshoure RB --- 24 1
I expect him to start once he serves a two-game suspension.
12 12.10 FootballGuys.com Jake Locker QB TEN 26 1
Newly named starter with several passing game options and the ability to run too. I like it.
13 13.03 FootballGuys.com Felix Jones RB --- 27 4
Best RB left, to be quite honest and Murray is not exactly rock solid for his health history. Jones was the starter 12 months ago so there is plenty of upside if Murray gets hurt, and the Cowboys aren't exactly full of healthy bodies right now.
14 14.10 FootballGuys.com Laurent Robinson WR --- 29 5
Love his touchdown upside, and Gabbert did look better this preseason - but then again, hard for him not to.. but L-Rob has a nose for the end zone is a great best ball WR
15 15.03 FootballGuys.com Alex Smith QB KC 30 7
16 16.10 FootballGuys.com Stephen Gostkowski PK NE 31 6
One of the top kickers for a high scoring offense.
17 17.03 FootballGuys.com Buffalo Def BUF    
Underrated defense with lots of upside, and a very soft schedule.
18 18.10 FootballGuys.com San Diego Def SD    
19 19.03 FootballGuys.com Stephen Hill WR CAR 23 R
Big play WR, perfect for a few weeks of a deep TD for a nice score in best ball.
20 20.10 FootballGuys.com Justin Medlock PK --- 31 5
