Silva's June Top 150

Wednesday, June 11, 2014



Round Nine

97. Ben Tate -- Has job security & durability questions.
98. Kelvin Benjamin -- Ideal opportunity as Cam's WR1.
99. Reggie Wayne -- Coming off late-October ACL tear.
100. Heath Miller -- Should rebound as a low-end TE1.
101. Ray Rice -- RBBC, health, performance, off-field woes. Let someone else draft.
102. Christine Michael -- Legitimately elite running ability. Marshawn Lynch in way.
103. Marvin Jones -- Expect increased role as Hue Jax weeds out Mohamed Sanu.
104. Julian Edelman -- Overdraft candidate. Pats won't want him at 105 catches again.
105. Pierre Thomas -- Likely to cede work to Khiry Robinson. Pedestrian RB3/flex.
106. Darren Sproles -- Could flirt with flex value in PPR. Less attractive in standard.
107. Mike Evans -- Consistency, volume are '14 concerns. Eventual elite TD scorer.
108. Fred Jackson -- 33 1/2 when season starts. Bryce Brown threatens his carries.

Round Ten

109. Chris Ivory -- Will stay involved, but CJ?K signing dealt Ivory a big fantasy blow.
110. Colin Kaepernick -- Loaded arsenal with Stevie Johnson in SF, Crabtree healthy.
111. Danny Amendola -- From 2013 early-round bust to 2014 late-round value pick?
112. Khiry Robinson -- Saints top pure ball carrier. Could move up this list in camp.
113. Anquan Boldin -- Entering age-34 season. More mouths to feed in San Fran.
114. James Jones -- Favorite for receptions, yards, TDs in Raiders receiver corps.
115. Emmanuel Sanders -- Cody Latimer casts doubt on Sanders' breakout chances.
116. Maurice Jones-Drew -- I expect MJD to emerge as lead runner over McFadden.
117. Cecil Shorts -- Garbage-time king on improving team, especially at his position.
118. Martellus Bennett -- Fringe TE1 who can keep owners competitive at tight end.
119. Charles Clay -- See Martellus with less upside. 2013 was likely Clay's ceiling.
120. Hakeem Nicks -- Question marks, but chance to revive career with Andrew Luck.

Round Eleven

121. Justin Hunter -- Could have some WR1 weeks even if inconsistency inevitable.
122. Brian Hartline -- Consistent inability to score touchdowns. Aim higher at WR3.
123. Ladarius Green -- Freakazoid talent. Needs Chargers to commit to feeding him.
124. Jordan Matthews -- Will play Colstonian slot-mismatch role in juggernaut offense.
125. Carlos Hyde -- Unlikely to be 2014 factor before midseason or late in the year.
126. Jonathan Stewart -- I'd rather take a late-round stab on Stewart than DeAngelo.
127. Delanie Walker -- 2013 stats inflated by Tennessee's on-the-fly spread offense.
128. Jermichael Finley -- Health the obvious issue. Will move up or off list altogether.
129. James Starks -- Becomes every-week fantasy starter if Eddie Lacy goes down.
130. Danny Woodhead -- More of a PPR pick. Could lose touches to Donald Brown.
131. Knowshon Moreno -- Will be exposed as ordinary outside of Broncos offense.
132. DeAngelo Williams -- Favorite to start, but no chance to be a difference maker.

Round Twelve

133. Lance Dunbar -- Could play the Joique role to Murray's Reggie under Linehan.
134. Johnny Manziel -- Upside QB2 definitely has chance to make year-one noise.
135. Alex Smith -- Can flirt with QB1 numbers, but best utilized as matchup play.
136. Bryce Brown -- Could offer RB2 stats if C.J. Spiller or Fred Jackson went down.
137. Andy Dalton -- New OC Hue Jackson plans to turn Dalton into game manager.
138. Tyler Eifert -- In an ideal world, he'd emerge as the No. 2 to A.J. Green's No. 1.
139. Ahmad Bradshaw -- Colts No. 2 RB option behind 2013 bust Trent Richardson.
140. Darren McFadden -- Competing with Jones-Drew for Raiders lead back work.
141. Knile Davis -- Quietly one of fantasy's top handcuff or late lottery-ticket picks.
142. Mark Ingram -- Part of three-way RBBC with Pierre Thomas, Khiry Robinson.
143. Chris Polk -- Would be Chip Kelly's main carrier if LeSean McCoy went down.
144. C.J. Anderson -- Closed last season ahead of Ronnie Hillman on depth chart.

Round Thirteen

145. Roy Helu -- Arguably better fit for Jay Gruden's pass-first style than Alfred Morris.
146. Greg Jennings -- Slot/Z receiver's game is good match for Bridgewater's arm.
147. Dwayne Allen -- More real-life than fantasy talent. May be useful TE1 streamer.
148. Antonio Gates -- Fading 34-year-old *should* take backseat to Ladarius Green.
149. Riley Cooper -- Block-first WR lacks consistent weekly role in Eagles passing O.
150. Devonta Freeman -- Possible heir apparent to Steven Jackson, who's turning 31.
