Round Four

37. Gent's Depraved Boozers - Brandon Marshall, WR, MIA
38. Blount's Three Bricks Shy - C.J. Spiller, RB, BUF
39. Cosell's Cocksure Carnival Barkers - Randy Moss, WR, NE
40. Exley's Self-Loathing Anti-Heroes - Matt Schaub, QB, HOU
41. Plimpton's Paper Lions - Steve Smith, WR, CAR
42. Jenkins' Semi-Tough Sumbitches - Percy Harvin, WR, MIN
43. Shula's Champagne Poppers - Matt Ryan, QB, ATL
44. Vermeil's Crocodile Tears - Hakeem Nicks, WR, NYG
45. Tuna's Big Cigars & Motorcars - Pierre Thomas, RB, NO
46. Mini Ditka - LeSean McCoy, RB, PHI
47. Denny Green's Arse Crowners - Steve Smith, WR, NYG
48. Mora's Playoff Pipe Dreams - Ryan Grant, RB, GB

Notes: Marshall is coming off a second hip surgery in as many years while going from a pass-oriented offense to a run-oriented offense. I'd let someone else draft him. ... Steve Smith South remains a far better talent than Steve Smith North. Hicks is a more dominant talent for the Giants. ... Where does Randy Moss play in 2011?

Round Five

49. Mora's Playoff Pipe Dreams - Jermichael Finley, TE, GB
50. Denny Green's Arse Crowners - Joe Flacco, QB, BAL
51. Mini Ditka - Anquan Boldin, WR, BAL
52. Tuna's Big Cigars & Motorcars - Antonio Gates, TE, SD
53. Vermeil's Crocodile Tears - Jay Cutler, QB, CHI
54. Shula's Champagne Poppers - Dallas Clark, TE, IND
55. Jenkins' Semi-Tough Sumbitches - Matt Forte, RB, CHI
56. Plimpton's Paper Lions - Donald Brown, RB, IND
57. Exley's Self-Loathing Anti-Heroes - Vernon Davis, TE, SF
58. Cosell's Cocksure Carnival Barkers - Jason Witten, TE, DAL
59. Blount's Three Bricks Shy - Brent Celek, TE, PHI
60. Gent's Depraved Boozers - Ben Roethlisberger, QB, PIT

Notes: It's a run on tight ends. While the position is deep for redrafters, there's a clear top-six hierarchy in Dynasty leagues. ... Donald Brown should be the first Indy back off the board with Addai's contract up after the season. ... Bad Ben remains a top-five talent at QB, so this is great value.

Round Six

61. Gent's Depraved Boozers - Cedric Benson, RB, CIN
62. Blount's Three Bricks Shy - Kevin Kolb, QB, PHI
63. Cosell's Cocksure Carnival Barkers - Ronnie Brown, RB, MIA
64. Exley's Self-Loathing Anti-Heroes - Chad Ochocinco, WR, CIN
65. Plimpton's Paper Lions - Dwayne Bowe, WR, KC
66. Jenkins' Semi-Tough Sumbitches - Mike Sims-Walker, WR, JAX
67. Shula's Champagne Poppers - Mike Wallace, WR, PIT
68. Vermeil's Crocodile Tears - Montario Hardesty, RB, CLE
69. Tuna's Big Cigars & Motorcars - Jeremy Maclin, WR, PHI
70. Mini Ditka - Kenny Britt, WR, TEN
71. Denny Green's Arse Crowners - Joseph Addai, RB, IND
72. Mora's Playoff Pipe Dreams - Wes Welker, WR, NE

Notes: Considering his injury history and off-field shenanigans, Benson lacks stability without a contract extension. ... Kolb is loaded with young weapons, but he has to prove pocket presence. ... Hardesty has considerably more value than Jerome Harrison. ... Let someone else take Welker coming off major knee surgery with Moss' Patriots future up in the air.

Round Seven

73. Mora's Playoff Pipe Dreams - Johnny Knox, WR, CHI
74. Denny Green's Arse Crowners - Robert Meachem, WR, NO
75. Mini Ditka - Brandon Jacobs, RB, NYG
76. Tuna's Big Cigars & Motorcars - Pierre Garcon, WR, IND
77. Vermeil's Crocodile Tears - Santonio Holmes, WR, NYJ
78. Shula's Champagne Poppers - Braylon Edwards, WR, NYJ
79. Jenkins' Semi-Tough Sumbitches - Darren McFadden, RB, OAK
80. Plimpton's Paper Lions - Ben Tate, RB, HOU
81. Exley's Self-Loathing Anti-Heroes - Demaryius Thomas, WR, DEN
82. Cosell's Cocksure Carnival Barkers - Hines Ward, WR, PIT
83. Blount's Three Bricks Shy - Santana Moss, WR, WAS
84. Gent's Depraved Boozers - Kellen Winslow, TE, TB

Notes: This is a green light for Knox. Go get him. ... The numbers don't support it, but McFadden is a gut-feel breakout candidate for me. ... Hines Ward and Santana Moss are the best of this year's under-appreciated veterans.

Round Eight

85. Gent's Depraved Boozers - Mike Williams, WR, TB
86. Blount's Three Bricks Shy - Eli Manning, QB, NYG
87. Cosell's Cocksure Carnival Barkers - Ahmad Bradshaw, RB, NYG
88. Exley's Self-Loathing Anti-Heroes - Marion Barber, RB, DAL
89. Plimpton's Paper Lions - Zach Miller, TE, OAK
90. Jenkins' Semi-Tough Sumbitches - Michael Bush, RB, OAK
91. Shula's Champagne Poppers - Brett Favre, QB, MIN
92. Vermeil's Crocodile Tears - Owen Daniels, TE, HOU
93. Tuna's Big Cigars & Motorcars - Matthew Stafford, QB, DET
94. Mini Ditka - Chris Cooley, TE, WAS
95. Denny Green's Arse Crowners - Tony Gonzalez, TE, ATL
96. Mora's Playoff Pipe Dreams - Devin Hester, WR, CHI

Notes: Don't draft Bradshaw expecting a future feature back. He's always going to be in a committee attack. ... Zach Miller, still under 25, is the best value in the draft at tight end. ... Stafford is set up for fantasy success with a potentially potent aerial attack to go with a defense that can't stop the pass. ... I prefer Williams to Benn in Tampa. ... Favre remains a weekly asset, and he could play again in 2011.
