Silva's Early-Camp Top 150

Wednesday, July 31, 2013



Tenth Round

109. Jermichael Finley -- Will light flip on in contract year?
110. Rueben Randle -- Blowup candidate if Nicks gets hurt.
111. Ronnie Hillman -- Buzzing, but Broncos view as COP.
112. Alshon Jeffery -- Likely 4th in line for Bears targets.
113. Jared Cook -- Can stretch the seam, but low-volume TE.
114. Kyle Rudolph -- TD-dependent tight end being overdrafted in the seventh round.
115. Martellus Bennett -- ADP is mid-12th round; maybe the best TE pick for value.
116. Ben Roethlisberger -- High-end QB2, but Steelers may reel in pass attempts.
117. Kendall Wright -- One of many mouths to feed in inefficient Titans pass offense.
118. Joique Bell -- Ahead of Mikel Leshoure; legit RB2/flex if Reggie Bush goes down.
119. Lance Moore -- Quality fantasy depth; WR4 ideally started during bye weeks.
120. Justin Blackmon -- Suspended four games; can be every-week WR3 upon return.

Eleventh Round

121. Jeremy Kerley -- Will lead Jets in receptions and very possibly by wide margin.
122. Ryan Williams -- Prefer a late Williams flier to Mendenhall at his 5th/6th ADP.
123. Eli Manning -- Whether he can flirt with QB1 stats hinges on Nicks' shaky health.
124. BenJarvus Green-Ellis -- Will likely be weeded out in favor of Giovani Bernard.
125. DeAndre Hopkins -- Run-first offense limits ceiling, but respectable WR4 depth.
126. Knowshon Moreno -- In mix for snaps because he's Denver's best pass protector.
127. Dwayne Allen -- The one breakout candidate at tight end no one is talking about.
128. Chris Givens -- Will play the DeSean Jackson "Z" role in revised Rams offense.
129. Sidney Rice -- Having knee problems; Golden Tate will benefit more post-Harvin.
130. Carson Palmer -- Underrated QB2 with rising attempts & better receiver corps.
131. Johnathan Franklin -- Likely lesser half of RBBC behind lead back Eddie Lacy.
132. Roy Helu -- In driver's seat to back up Morris; every-week RB2 if Alf goes down.

Twelfth Round

133. Joe Flacco -- Losing Pitta deals a significant blow to Flacco's fantasy outlook.
134. Rob Housler -- Great early-camp buzz; recommended target if you're into TE2s.
135. Rod Streater -- Possession WR has decent chance to lead Raiders in catches.
136. Josh Freeman -- Jury still very much out on whether he'll ever be consistent.
137. Brian Quick -- Sleeper with big-play ability, but must beat out Austin Pettis.
138. Cordarrelle Patterson -- See Quick and replace Pettis with Jerome Simpson.
139. Sam Bradford -- Should benefit statistically from career-best supporting cast.
140. Vick Ballard -- Becomes viable low-end RB2/flex if Bradshaw goes down again.
141. Fred Jackson -- Difficult to take seriously at age 32 after double knee injuries.
142. Kenbrell Thompkins -- Worthwhile late-round flier getting lots of first-team reps.
143. Michael Vick -- Possible fantasy starter if he wins job; waiver-wire fodder if not.
144. Brandon Myers -- Could be solid TE streamer play if you're willing to gamble.

Thirteenth Round

145. Christine Michael -- Has a significant edge on Robert Turbin in running ability.
146. Owen Daniels -- Addition of DeAndre Hopkins crushes Daniels' fantasy outlook.
147. Danny Woodhead -- Chargers hope he'll be Philip Rivers' new Darren Sproles.
148. Coby Fleener -- Worth a look as TE2 in the Colts' new two-TE heavy offense.
149. Antonio Gates -- 33 now, but some rebound appeal in shortened pass game.
150. Kendall Hunter -- Favorite to enter season as 30-year-old Gore's top backup.
