Silva's Updated Top 150

Friday, August 24, 2012



Tenth Round

109. Brandon LaFell (ADP: Early 11th round) -- LaFell and Legedu Naanee rotated as Carolina's No. 2 receiver in 2011, combining for a final stat line of 80/1,080/4. LaFell now has the job all to himself. While LaFell is unlikely to repeat those statistics on his own, he does offer intriguing breakout appeal in the Panthers' aggressive, vertical offense. He's an ideal WR4 pick.

110. Austin Collie (ADP: Early 11th round) -- Collie's latest concussion understandably sent his ADP back down the drain just as he was beginning to look like the best receiver value going in drafts. There are no guarantees for a player concussed four times in a 21-month span, but I still like Collie's upside at the price of a WR4/5. I think he can lead Indy in catches and yards if he gains medical clearance. To date, there are no indications that Collie will be shut down.

111. Kendall Hunter (ADP: Mid 12th round)

112. Cedric Benson (ADP: Mid-7th round) -- Benson will open the season as the favorite for carries in Green Bay's backfield, but pedestrian talent and questionable scheme fit are working against him. Benson can't pass block or catch to save his life, and Packers backs must be able to play in the passing game in order to earn regular playing time. Benson may offer early-season RB3/flex value, but he'll be a liability in PPR leagues while gradually ceding snaps to Alex Green.

113. Malcom Floyd (ADP: Early 8th round)

114. Carson Palmer (ADP: Early 11th round)

115. Isaac Redman (ADP: Early 7th round)

116. Nate Washington (ADP: Mid 9th round)

117. Greg Olsen (ADP: Mid 12th round)

118. Randall Cobb (ADP: Mid 10th round)

119. Tony Gonzalez (ADP: Mid 9th round)

120. Anquan Boldin (ADP: Early 9th round)

Eleventh Round

121. Joe Flacco (ADP: Mid 12th round)

122. Sidney Rice (ADP: Late 11th round)

123. Jared Cook (ADP: Early 12th round)

124. Lance Moore (ADP: Early 10th round)

125. LeGarrette Blount (ADP: Early 10th round)

126. Pierre Thomas (ADP: Late 11th round)

127. Randy Moss (ADP: Mid 9th round)

128. Santonio Holmes (ADP: Mid 10th round)

129. Brandon Pettigrew (ADP: Late 8th round)

130. Alex Green (ADP: Undrafted) -- An October ACL tear should make most leery of Green's chances at significant 2012 fantasy impact, but he's clearly bypassed James Starks and has a leg up on Cedric Benson from the standpoint that Green excels in the passing game. The Packers are a passing team. It's not crazy to think the lead back job can be Green's by midyear.

131. Mike Williams (ADP: Late 10th round)

132. Bernard Scott (ADP: Undrafted)

Twelfth Round

133. Shane Vereen (ADP: Late 12th round)

134. Davone Bess (ADP: Undrafted)

135. Christian Ponder (ADP: Undrafted)

136. Ryan Fitzpatrick (ADP: Late 12th round)

137. Bernard Pierce (ADP: Undrafted)

138. Jermaine Gresham (ADP: Late 10th round)

139. Matt Schaub (ADP: Late 9th round)

140. Alshon Jeffery (ADP: Late 11th round)

141. Braylon Edwards (ADP: Undrafted)

142. Brian Quick (ADP: Early 14th round)

143. Josh Freeman (ADP: Early 12th round)

144. Lamar Miller (ADP: Undrafted)

Thirteenth Round

133. Felix Jones (ADP: Late 13th round) -- Out of shape and looking two steps slower in practice and preseason games, Jones has been outplayed by Phillip Tanner and UDFA Jamize Olawale to the point that there's been speculation Felix might lose his roster spot in Dallas. Jones should make the Cowboys' final 53, but he's no longer a desirable handcuff for DeMarco Murray.

145. Vick Ballard (ADP: Undrafted)

147. Ronnie Hillman (ADP: Mid 13th round)

148. Owen Daniels (ADP: Mid 13th round)

149. Emmanuel Sanders (ADP: Early 14th round) -- Sanders would have been a lot more intriguing had Mike Wallace held out into the regular season. With Wallace caving, Sanders will return to the slot in Todd Haley's offense, operating as a part-time player. He's still a worthy WR5 who could ascend to every-week WR3 production if Wallace or Antonio Brown were to get injured.

150. Mikel Leshoure (ADP: Late 10th round)
