Ovr Pick Franchise Selection Pos. Team Age Exp.
1 1.02 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Ray Rice RB --- 28 4
In the argument of which RB goes first, I'm ever so slightly leaning Rice's way since he has less competition for carries compared to Arian Foster and the Texans OL could be weaker following key losses. Oh, also Rice is a dual-threat stud, so there's that.
2 2.11 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Jamaal Charles RB KC 28 4
First draft this year I've gone RB-RB (also first draft I've had a top 3 pick). Been leery of Charles near the first turn, but at this point I'll bite. The Chiefs ground game is looking rather nice this year.
3 3.02 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Brandon Marshall WR NYJ 31 6
Screw it, I like Marshall this year. That's it.
4 4.11 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Steve Smith WR BAL 35 11
No tougher player in the league. You don't get points for that, but Smith will fight for every ball thrown his way. That plus his speed and being Cam Newton's main target will lead to plenty of scoring.
5 5.02 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Michael Turner RB --- 33 8
Like everyone says when they draft Turner, I'm not really in love with him, but he's good value here and the RB pool dries up quick.
6 6.11 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Jermichael Finley TE --- 28 4
Didn't really want to go TE here, but there's no WR jumping out at me. Instead I'll shore up the receiving corps with Finley, the best TE left - and I kind of think by a decent amount.
7 7.02 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Stevan Ridley RB --- 26 1
Just not in love with the remaining receivers. We'll see if only having two at this point bites me. The backs will be gone by the time I pick again. Since this is my fourth, I'll shoot for the moon with the Patriots young buck.
8 8.11 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Jay Cutler QB CHI 31 6
Other than echoing the surprise from others about backup QBs being selected so early in such a league, I'll move on and take one (I'm scared to wait even with just two picks in between my next selection). I actually like Cutler a touch more than normal and I love that I can pair him with Marshall. So, there's that.
9 9.02 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Anquan Boldin WR SF 34 9
Looking for some safety with WR3 slot. Welcome to the team Anquan Boldin.
10 10.11 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Kendall Wright WR TEN 25 R
After taking the safe route with Anquan Boldin last round, pretty happy one of the upside plays I've been eyeing is still around. Depending on Kenny Britt's availability, Wright could either be an occasional big play contributor or a weekly starter.
11 11.02 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Jared Cook TE STL 27 3
Pairing my favorite upside TE in Cook with the potent (but often dinged) Jermichael Finley.
12 12.11 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Andy Dalton QB CIN 27 1
Had been debating going with Locker's upside, but with him off the table will add the steady scoring of Dalton.
13 13.02 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Joe Flacco QB BAL 30 4
Really had no interest in taking a third QB here, but the best options left are tight ends (I have two) and rookie wide outs (I already have one). Since I missed out on the legit QB1's, I'll up my weekly odds by adding the solid Flacco to Cutler and Dalton.
14 14.11 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Michael Floyd WR ARI 25 R
15 15.02 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Mario Manningham WR --- 28 4
Eh, why not. I'm more of a Crabtree guy, but if forced to pick a SF wide out, but it's not a stretch to think Manningham ends up being top option this season.
16 16.11 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Detroit Def DET    
17 17.02 FFToolbox.com (Ben) New York Def NYG    
18 18.11 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Lawrence Tynes PK --- 36 11
For some reason Tynes is rarely a top 10 kicker, but the Giants sport a money offense so he'll have chances.
19 19.02 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Mike Goodson RB --- 27 3
In a regular league I'd go with Bernard Pierce as a Ray Rice handcuff. In this format, I'll instead shoot for the moon with someone else's backup. In this case, the guy behind the often injured DMac.
20 20.11 FFToolbox.com (Ben) Dan Carpenter PK BUF 29 4
