Silva's Updated Top 150

Sixth Round

61. Reggie Wayne (ADP: Late 6th round)

62. Torrey Smith (ADP: Early 7th round)

63. Reggie Bush (ADP: Late 4th round)

64. Jonathan Stewart (ADP: Late 7th round)

65. Peyton Hillis (ADP: Mid 5th round)

66. DeSean Jackson (ADP: Mid 5th round)

67. Michael Turner (ADP: Late 3rd round)

68. Kenny Britt (ADP: Late 7th round)

69. Ryan Williams (ADP: Late 7th round)

70. Miles Austin (ADP: Mid 6th round)

71. Mark Ingram (ADP: Late 7th round) -- Ingram interests me as a standard-league RB2/flex because he's looked awfully good in preseason action while retaining a stranglehold on red-zone carries in New Orleans' high-scoring offense. Ingram disappointed a ton of owners last season, keeping the Average Draft Position very low on a legitimate threat for 10-12 rushing TDs.

72. Pierre Garcon (ADP: Late 6th round)

Seventh Round

73. Ben Tate (ADP: Early 7th round)

74. Rashad Jennings (ADP: Mid 8th round)

75. Donald Brown (ADP: Mid 5th round)

76. Greg Little (ADP: Late 9th round)

77. Tony Romo (ADP: Late 6th round) -- Romo's Average Draft Position was screaming toward the fourth round early in training camp, but it's understandably cooled off with so many injuries around him. Jason Witten (spleen) is likely to miss Week 1 and may not be healthy early in the season. Miles Austin's hamstring problems are recurring. The interior of Dallas' offensive line looks worse than last year's, if that's possible. I wouldn't want Romo as my fantasy starter.

78. Eli Manning (ADP: Late 5th round)

79. Philip Rivers (ADP: Early 7th round)

80. Fred Davis (ADP: Late 8th round)

81. Titus Young (ADP: Mid 7th round)

82. Toby Gerhart (ADP: Mid 9th round)

83. Shonn Greene (ADP: Early 6th round) -- I mentioned the effect of a passing league on fantasy statistics in this column's introduction. It has deepened the wide receiver and quarterback fields. At the same time, the passing league has allowed pass-catching running backs to lap early-down plodders, particularly those who don't play in high-scoring offenses. Shonn Greene is precisely the kind of running back to avoid in 2012 fantasy drafts. He doesn't catch passes, plays in a brutal offense, and lacks big-play ability to compensate. You're in trouble if he's your RB2.

84. Peyton Manning (ADP: Mid 6th round)

Eighth Round

85. Denarius Moore (ADP: Late 8th round)

86. C.J. Spiller (ADP: Early 8th round)

87. Kyle Rudolph (ADP: Late 13th round) -- Rudolph's ADP is still in the flier-pick range, but he shouldn't be considered a flier anymore. If there is a late-round tight end capable of leaping into the Hernandez/Finley/Davis tier, it's the one in Minnesota. Rudolph should be Ponder's No. 1 red-zone target and No. 2 in the open field, behind Harvin. He's got a leg up on the Jared Cooks of the world as an established, every-down tight end. Rudolph isn't just a passing-down specialist.

88. Darrius Heyward-Bey (ADP: Late 8th round)

89. DeAngelo Williams (ADP: Mid 8th round)

90. Michael Bush (ADP: Mid 8th round)

91. BenJarvus Green-Ellis (ADP: Mid 4th round)

92. Ben Roethlisberger (ADP: Mid 9th round)

93. Evan Royster (ADP: Late 10th round)

94. Beanie Wells (ADP: Late 6th round)

95. Justin Blackmon (ADP: Early 8th round)

96. Andrew Luck (ADP: Early 10th round)

Ninth Round

97. Roy Helu (ADP: Early 9th round)

98. Jacob Tamme (ADP: Late 7th round)

99. Jason Witten (ADP: Early 8th round)

100. Jay Cutler (ADP: Late 7th round)

101. Isaiah Pead (ADP: Mid 13th round)

102. Jake Locker (ADP: Late 13th round)

103. Robert Meachem (ADP: Early 8th round)

104. Michael Crabtree (ADP: Early 11th round)

105. Jacquizz Rodgers (ADP: Late 9th round)

106. Kendall Wright (ADP: Late 11th round)

107. David Wilson (ADP: Early 9th round)

108. Robert Griffin III (ADP: Late 8th round)
