Silva's June Top 150

Friday, June 07, 2013



Fifth Round

49. Reggie Wayne -- Volume WR in more balanced O.
50. Antonio Brown -- Legitimate threat for 100 catches.
51. Jordy Nelson -- Fantasy's No. 2 WR as recently as '11.
52. Darren Sproles -- His baseline is WR2/3-caliber stats.
53. Tony Gonzalez -- Top-five fantasy tight end in six of his last seven seasons.
54. Steve Smith -- Shows few signs of slowing down despite advancing age (34).
55. Russell Wilson -- No. 1 overall fantasy QB over last season's final five weeks.
56. Danny Amendola -- Will produce like WR1/2 for as many games as he lasts.
57. Andrew Luck -- Expect Luck's efficiency to spike in Pep Hamilton's offense.
58. Peyton Manning -- Signs of decline at age 37, but remains mid-range QB1.
59. Matt Ryan -- Might be overdrafted this season; still never a top-6 fantasy QB.
60. Robert Griffin III -- Could pass Luck, Manning, Ryan if recovery stays on track.

Sixth Round

61. Mike Wallace -- Flirted with WR1 value in Pittsburgh; will be WR2/3 in Miami.
62. Pierre Garcon -- Would be top-15 receiver candidate if not for troublesome toe.
63. Torrey Smith -- Ravens counting on year-three leap with Anquan Boldin gone.
64. Eric Decker -- TDs will regress, but Decker still makes for a passable WR2.
65. Vernon Davis -- Projects as primary beneficiary of Michael Crabtree's injury.
66. Jason Witten -- Should remain high-catch total guy, but never a big TD scorer.
67. Wes Welker -- Will disappoint owners counting on his old Patriots statistics.
68. Ahmad Bradshaw -- Assumes he signs with Colts. Would be their lead back.
69. Ryan Mathews -- Might be better rebound candidate if he had a better O-Line.
70. Greg Jennings -- Takes over the Percy Harvin role in Christian Ponder's offense.
71. Hakeem Nicks -- Value depends wholly on his health, which hasn't been good.

72. DeSean Jackson -- Clearly passing Jeremy Maclin as Eagles' top fantasy WR.

Seventh Round

73. Colin Kaepernick -- Michael Crabtree Achilles' tear drops Kap to borderline QB1.
74. Jonathan Stewart -- New Panthers offense will lean more on the running backs.
75. Giovani Bernard -- Bernard's role should increase as the season progresses.
76. James Jones -- Won't lead NFL in receiving TDs again, but role is increasing.
77. T.Y. Hilton -- Will move up this list once he beats out Darrius Heyward-Bey.
78. Kenny Britt -- Healthy and rearing for breakout season in final year of contract.
79. Cecil Shorts -- Exciting player could be held back by shoddy quarterback play.
80. Dennis Pitta -- Could lead Baltimore in catches if receiver corps stays as is.
81. Shane Vereen -- Arguably more talented all-around back than teammate Ridley.
82. Danario Alexander -- Fear he'll be a bit overdrafted after last year's second half.
83. Tavon Austin -- Sam Bradford has always peppered slot receivers with targets.

84. Isaiah Pead -- Most talented running backin STL should lead Rams in carries.

Eighth Round


85. Josh Gordon -- Two-game suspension will make him a better value in drafts.
86. Rashard Mendenhall -- The tentative favorite for Cardinals lead tailback duties.
87. Mark Ingram -- Sean Payton sounds committed to restoring Saints run game.
88. Tony Romo -- Annual QB value pick; Cowboys will continue to lean on pass.
89. Zac Stacy -- If Pead doesn't win the Rams' starting job, Stacy is next man up.
90. Ben Tate -- As Arian Foster shows signs of breakdown, Tate is next man up.
91. Miles Austin -- Doesn't offer the ceiling he once did; now a low-upside WR3.
92. Mike Williams -- Touchdown-dependent player hurts you when he doesn't score.
93. Lance Moore -- Quietly coming off career-best season with role still on the rise.
94. Anquan Boldin -- Candidate to be overvalued; can't carry 49ers receiving load.
95. Stevie Johnson -- Bills' transition to run-heavy offense will hurt Johnson's stats.
96. Ryan Broyles -- Getting little hype, but breakout candidate if health cooperates.

Ninth Round

97. Daryl Richardson -- Rams seem to fancy Richardson as change-of-pace back.
98. BenJarvus Green-Ellis -- Giovani Bernard pick torpedoed Law Firm's fantasy value.
99. Andre Brown -- Potential goal-line and passing-down vulture behind David Wilson.
100. Bryce Brown -- Could offer standalone flex value in Chip Kelly's run-based attack.
101. Ben Roethlisberger -- Major weapons losses, but benefits from QB-friendly offense.
102. Martellus Bennett -- Likely increasingly pass-happy Bears' No. 2 receiving option.
103. Greg Olsen -- Steady, if low-upside TE1 remains Panthers' No. 2 pass catcher.
104. Jermichael Finley -- Annual underachiever teased with solid 2012 second half.
105. Kyle Rudolph -- Red-zone stud but not a dynamic receiver between the twenties.
106. Ryan Williams -- Should have every opportunity to beat out Mendenhall to start.
107. Jacquizz Rodgers -- Will remain involved in offense despite S-Jax acquisition.
108. Jared Cook -- Candidate to lead Rams in both receiving yards and TD catches.
