Ovr Pick Franchise Selection Pos. Team Age Exp.
1 1.10 CBSSports.com Maurice Jones-Drew RB --- 30 6
I don't want to draft MJD this year, but I didn't want him last year either, which proved to be a mistake. He's worth the risk at No. 10 overall right now, but if he's a holdout then he'll easily fall below McFadden, Richardson, Lynch and Murray.
2 2.03 CBSSports.com Trent Richardson RB OAK 23 R
Easy selection here. Too much depth at QB and WR but elite RB options will get thin real quick.
3 3.10 CBSSports.com Mike Wallace WR MIN 28 3
As long as he doesn't hold out Wallace should continue to post outstanding production.
4 4.03 CBSSports.com Demaryius Thomas WR DEN 27 2
Love the upside with Peyton and in his third year.
5 5.10 CBSSports.com Roy Helu RB OAK 26 1
I have no idea what Shanahan is going to do, but I do know Helu is the best RB on his roster. Hopefully talent rises up here.
6 6.03 CBSSports.com Antonio Gates TE SD 34 9
All reports are that he's healthy (for now) but he could challenge Gronk and Graham for the No.1 TE spot if he plays close to 16 games.
7 7.10 CBSSports.com Titus Young WR --- 25 1
Seems like a good spot for him here. Hopefully he will do what most expect and outplay Nate Burleson in what should once again be an explosive passing offense.
8 8.03 CBSSports.com Peyton Manning QB DEN 39 14
As the last team to draft a QB, you're left with slim pickings in terms of starting Fantasy options. While Peyton Manning is a huge risk, he also presents amazing value at this spot if he returns to form. Taking a backup QB soon has now become a priority.
9 9.10 CBSSports.com Mikel Leshoure RB --- 25 1
Lots of ways to go with this pick, but I like Leshoure a lot. I think he will easily be Detroit's best RB this season.
10 10.03 CBSSports.com Anquan Boldin WR SF 34 9
His role has changed with the Ravens but he'll still have 3-4 productive weeks. Good value for a No. 4 WR.
11 11.10 CBSSports.com Brandon LaFell WR NE 28 2
Love the upside here. Should do well starting opposite Smitty.
12 12.03 CBSSports.com Carson Palmer QB ARI 35 9
Seems like backup QB time, especially drafting Peyton as a starter. Palmer doesn't have great weapons, but he has enough to get by.
13 13.10 CBSSports.com Tim Hightower RB NO 28 4
Have a few handcuff options here in MJD-Jennings or Helu-Hightower, but Hightower makes more sense barring an MJD holdout. Who knows what Shanahan will do, but having both Redskins rushers at least keeps me covered.
14 14.03 CBSSports.com Nate Washington WR TEN 31 7
He did well last year when Britt was out. And Britt is, well, you know ...
15 15.10 CBSSports.com Bernard Scott RB --- 31 3
I don't buy BGE as a featured back. Scott has yet to prove anything, but this could be his year to step up with more touches.
16 16.03 CBSSports.com New York Def NYG    
Good pass rush, proven unit, late bye week. All good things when drafting a DST.
17 17.10 CBSSports.com Alex Henery PK --- 27 1
Ditto the previous comment. It's a kicker.
18 18.03 CBSSports.com Robert Housler TE --- 27 1
I'd like him more if the QB situation was better. He should play better than what his rookie stats suggest.
19 19.10 CBSSports.com Dallas Def DAL    
They should be improved this year with the additions in the secondary.
20 20.03 CBSSports.com Randy Bullock PK HOU 25 R
Neil Rackers who?
