151 13.07 @2MugsFF Kendall Hunter RB SF 26 1
Talent tends to find a way to ascend a crowded backfield.
152 13.08 @FF_Today Joe Flacco QB BAL 30 4
Certainly not the most exciting of backup QBs to grab, but when you invest in a first round QB, you can afford to wait and wait at the position. In fact, you'd be silly not to, otherwise you're counteracting the benefit of taking a QB so early. To Flacco's credit, he doesn't miss time, he's got that cannon arm and pretty darn good skill players to work with, too. On the plus side, his defense might be on the downside, possibly resulting in more pass attempts in 2012.
153 13.09 @thehuddle Jerome Simpson WR SF 29 4
Feeling a bit homerish with my third Vikings, but Simpson wowed during OTAs and has the speed to take advantage of defenses crowding the box against Minnesota's running game.
154 13.10 @JameyEisenberg 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.
155 13.11 (Ben) @BenStandig Laurent Robinson WR --- 29 5
His quarterback scares me, but getting any team's No. 1 WR at this point is nice.
156 13.12 @FantasySharks Ryan Fitzpatrick QB NYJ 32 7
Fitzpatrick stands out to me as a player of value. Which is hard to say about what little is left on the bone.
157 14.01 @FantasySharks Greg Olsen TE CAR 30 5
It was Olsen or Rudolph and while I really do like the youngster in Minnesota, John Carlson frightens me just a tad. Olsen is capable and makes a nice value add.
158 14.02 (Ben) @BenStandig Jake Locker QB TEN 26 1
At this point its all about upside and of the bottom 14 starting QBs - or in this case, eventually starting - Locker might have the most.
159 14.03 @JameyEisenberg Nate Washington WR TEN 31 7
He did well last year when Britt was out. And Britt is, well, you know ...
160 14.04 @thehuddle Joe McKnight RB KC 26 2
McKnight is expected to take on an expanded role in the Jets' offense. Between Tony Sparano's penchant for running the ball, the potential for an upgraded o-line if Jeff Otah can stay healthy, and Shonn Greene's mediocrity there's more than enough upside to warrant investing a 14th-round pick.
161 14.05 @FF_Today Philadelphia Def PHI    
The high expectations and subsequent crash and burn of the 2011 Dream Team hopefully humbled the Eagles enough to get them back to playing solid football in 2012. I suspect it will for this talented group.
162 14.06 @2MugsFF Jacoby Ford WR TEN 27 2
I like a healthy Ford to bounce back in 2012
163 14.07 (Matt) @FFToolbox Nate Burleson WR --- 33 9
Even if Titus Young takes off as Detroit's No. 2 WR, there's plenty of offense to go around.
164 14.08 @draftcalc Doug Baldwin WR SEA 26 1
165 14.09 @Rotoworld_FB Emmanuel Sanders WR DEN 28 2
166 14.10 @FansFantasy Lestar Jean WR --- 27 1
its sleeper time...Jean has some buzz from the OTA's and Texans looking for a more explosive partner for AJ
167 14.11 @mschauf63 Rueben Randle WR NYG 23 R
It shouldn't be difficult for Randle to become one of the Giants' top-3 WRs. And if it were difficult for that guy to at least approximate Mario Manningham's role, well, the Giants wouldn't have let the other guy leave.
168 14.12 @kffl Delone Carter RB --- 27 1
I think there's more to Carter than what we saw with that clusterbleep of an offense last year. He has a nice build for all-around work, and I'm not sold on Donald Brown.
169 15.01 @kffl Mario Manningham WR --- 28 4
Speaking of Manningham, this late, worth taking a shot on the Niners' passing game actually coming of age. Not all that confident it will, but Manningham is a streaky player capable of big weeks.
170 15.02 @mschauf63 Kyle Rudolph TE MIN 25 1
I was big on Rudolph's breakout potential before the John Carlson signing. I have a much tougher time liking him at all in redraft now, but he's a good chance to take as a best-ball TE3 where TEs work at flex.
171 15.03 @FansFantasy Houston Def HOU    
They must feel pretty confident in their unit for let Williams walk and trade away Ryans...I will buy in as well
172 15.04 @Rotoworld_FB Martellus Bennett TE CHI 28 4
173 15.05 @draftcalc Kevin Smith RB --- 28 4
174 15.06 (Matt) @FFToolbox Tony Moeaki TE ATL 27 2
I'm high on Moeaki as a late-round TE who just might go undrafted in some leagues. He's finally healthy and definitely under the radar.
175 15.07 @2MugsFF Pittsburgh Def PIT    
Don't know how this timed out, never got an email alert. Whatever. Steelers don't suck.
176 15.08 @FF_Today Rashad Jennings RB NYG 30 3
I'm not really investing in Rashad Jennings because on a possible Maurice Jones-Drew holdout. I honestly don't think MJD will holdout and miss the real season. Jennings is a talented RB in his own right, so this late in the draft I'll take a chance he can return to form from injury that sidelined him last year. If he can, he's a valuable backup and handcuff regardless of MJD's contract situation.
177 15.09 @thehuddle Taiwan Jones CB OAK 26 1
I like Jones' upside as a change of pace guy who would see an uptick in touches if (when) McFadden gets hurt.
178 15.10 @JameyEisenberg 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.
179 15.11 (Ben) @BenStandig Green Bay Def GB    
180 15.12 @FantasySharks Chicago Def CHI    
Da-Bears. I like their return game and their ability to put up fantasy points.
181 16.01 @FantasySharks Stephen Gostkowski PK NE 31 6
Let's grab a kicker here too. It comes down to Janikowski or Gostkowski for me. Since I can't spell or pronounce either, I'll go with the Patriot.
182 16.02 (Ben) @BenStandig Cedric Benson RB --- 32 7
Gotta figure he signs somewhere before the season starts. Since I have the starters on two of the teams rumored to be interested (Raiders, Packers), I'll take a flyer.
183 16.03 @JameyEisenberg New York Def NYG    
Good pass rush, proven unit, late bye week. All good things when drafting a DST.
184 16.04 @thehuddle Josh Gordon WR CLE 23 R
When it's the 16th round you can't really call it getting sniped, but I did have the Bears D all queued up. The backup plan is a huge flier on a Browns rookie. The team is desperate for playmakers, and as my WR6 it's all upside.
185 16.05 @FF_Today Lance Kendricks TE STL 27 1
You could certainly do better for a backup TE, but this late in the draft when most teams already have two, you could certainly do worse than the upside of second year Lance Kendricks. Kendricks looked great in preseason a year ago and then floundered badly once the season started. I don't think he'll be just an annual preseason performer. I think he just needs more time to adjust to the NFL and get on the same page with Sam Bradford.
186 16.06 @2MugsFF Marcel Reece RB OAK 29 4
My binky
187 16.07 (Matt) @FFToolbox New York Def NYJ    
The Jets added some nice pieces this offseason. I think they rebound this season.
188 16.08 @draftcalc LaMichael James RB MIA 25 R
189 16.09 @Rotoworld_FB Chad Johnson WR --- 37 11
190 16.10 @FansFantasy Matt Flynn QB GB 29 4
Need a QB for one week when Brees is on a bye..You have to think Flynn was brought to Seattle for a reason. Wilson is too small and Jackson is well Jackson
191 16.11 @mschauf63 Sebastian Janikowski PK OAK 37 12
192 16.12 @kffl Ed Dickson TE CAR 27 2
The Ravens struggled in the red zone last year, and incorporating Dickson in that role more often to complement their iffy pass catchers could lead to some nice weeks as a TE alternative.
193 17.01 @kffl New England Def NE    
Had trouble choosing between them and a few others. What won it for NE in the end was their reloaded draft talent (Chandler Jones should aid the pass rush), the hopeful improvement of their secondary, and their weak division.
194 17.02 @mschauf63 Detroit Def DET    
195 17.03 @FansFantasy Evan Royster RB --- 27 1
Shanahan is the devil, but in this format it works as everyone will eventually get a shot to star
196 17.04 @Rotoworld_FB Chris Rainey RB --- 27 R
197 17.05 @draftcalc Tim Tebow QB --- 27 2
198 17.06 (Matt) @FFToolbox Stephen Hill WR CAR 23 R
Hill's big play potential is off the charts. Speed dominates and he has plenty of that.
199 17.07 @2MugsFF Golden Tate WR DET 26 2
Upside pick.
200 17.08 @FF_Today Mason Crosby PK GB 30 5
Add one talented kicker from high-powered offense, check.
