    His Twitter handle (@Cantguardmike) speaks truth.

    Relying on a repeat of last year.

    Watson could help improve his stock.

    Stock on the rise with Brady throwing to him.

    Texans need his playmaking ability to succeed.
  6. Aaron Rodgers, QB/GB
    Best quarterback still on the board.
  7. Carlos Hyde, RB/SF
    Future a little uncertain, but too good to let pass by.

    Tempted to go Matt Ryan, but too many Falcons.

    Will there be enough passes to go around in GB?

    Dynamic back who provides big-play ability.
  3. Jarvis Landry, WR/MIA
    Plays a big role in Miami’s offense and wants new contract.

    A return to MVP would be great; if not, still good player.
  5. Emmanuel Sanders, WR/DEN
    Not a bad second option, although not ideal.

    Plays like a receiver and offers nice safety valve to Mariota.

    When healthy, he’s a tough cover.
  10. Russell Wilson, QB/SEA
    I like Wilson’s versatility and steady hand.
  11. Martellus Bennett, TE/NE
    Should be a big-play target for A-Rod.
  12. Tyreek Hill, WR/KC
    With Maclin gone, it’s Hill’s corps to lead.

Round 6

  1. Paul Perkins, RB/NYG
    Takes over the lead role in NYG and should thrive.
  2. C.J. Anderson, RB/DEN
    Part of a committee, but should have best opportunity.
  3. Julian Edelman, WR/NE
    Cooks’ arrival muddies the waters, but Edelman should get his looks.
  4. Joe Mixon, RB/CIN
    Character aside, he’s a hard guy not to like on the field.
  5. Jameis Winston, QB/TB
    Big things are expected from Jameis this season.
  6. Tyler Eifert, TE/CIN
    When he stays healthy, he’s one of the top TEs in the game.

    Can he maintain production in new city?
  8. Larry Fitzgerald, WR/ARI
    Getting old, but led league in receptions in 2016.
  9. Brandon Marshall, WR/NYG
    Still has a powerful effect on offenses at his age.
  10. Spencer Ware, RB/KC
    Will be in a fight for the lead back role.

    Remains a big part of Vikings offense.
  12. Kelvin Benjamin, WR/BUF
    I think he offers best value and upside here.

    His potential in New England is infinitely better than in BUF.
  6. Doug Martin, RB/TB
    Could see return to form in 2017.

    Hoping he keeps his nose clean.

    Still a starting RB, although I don’t know for how long.

    Good time to handcuff the Saints’ backfield.

    I love the rookie’s potential.
  12. Willie Snead, WR/NO
    Michael Thomas won’t be only WR in NO to benefit from Cooks’ departure.

Round 8

  1. Derek Carr, QB/OAK
    One of the top QBs in the game at this pick is a steal.

    Should be top WR in San Fran this season.

    Texans’ D will be scary good this year.
  6. Dak Prescott, QB/DAL
    Showed great progress as a rookie; will only get better.

    Solid tight end at this point in the draft.

    Versatile player at his age, but not sure if body will hold up.

    A top defense with takeaway potential.

    Always seems to have fantasy value in PPR leagues.
  7. Jeremy Hill, RB/CIN
    Need some more RB depth and Hill has chance to produce.
  8. Kenneth Dixon, RB/BAL
    Will have to stash him for 4 weeks, but should produce this year.
  9. Minnesota Vikings, DST/MIN
    With rest of roster fleshed out, good time to take DST.
  10. Arizona Cardinals, DST/ARI
    Was prepared to take Vikings here, but Cardinals good, too.
  11. Kenny Britt, WR/NE
    Could put up adequate fantasy numbers.
  12. O.J. Howard, TE/TB
    Taking a chance on the rookie, who could be a beast.

Round 10

  1. Tyrell Williams, WR/LAC
    Showed some success in Allen’s absence last year.
  2. Baltimore Ravens, DST/BAL
    Should be a stout D in 2017.

    Tucker is automatic and has a big leg.

    Will split time with the rookie, but will get his snaps.

    Lineup is rounding out nicely with top kicker.

    Solid backup QB in case Prescott struggles.
  7. DeVante Parker, WR/MIA
    Could have a breakout season this year.
  8. Jonathan Stewart, RB/CAR
    He’ll still have a role in Panthers’ offense.
  9. Theo Riddick, RB/DET

    If Ware doesn’t start, Hunt will.
  11. Randall Cobb, WR/GB
    Not sure how many looks he’ll get this year.

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars, DST/JAX
    I love their young upside.

    A little worried about his knee, but worth the gamble.
  9. Thomas Rawls, RB/SEA
    Not sure Lacy has secured SEA’s starting role.
  10. Kevin White, WR/CHI
    He has much to prove in his third season.

    Should continue to improve each season.
  12. Julius Thomas, TE/MIA

Round 12

  1. Carson Wentz, QB/PHI
    I think he’s in for a huge season with added weapons.

    Green Bay should score a ton of points this year.

  4. Jeremy Maclin, WR/BAL
    Worth a role of the dice here.
  5. Eli Manning, QB/NYG

    Good things are in store for Dolphins offense this year.
  4. Sam Bradford, QB/MIN
    With a full offseason, I think Bradford settles in nicely.

    Cowboys offense keeps rolling, giving Bailey lots of shots.
  6. Taylor Gabriel, WR/ATL
    Speedy WR who showed potential last season.
  7. C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE/HOU
    Texans passing offense should be better this year.

    The old man can still bang it through!
  10. Mike Glennon, QB/CHI
    He’ll do all he can to fend off rookie Trubisky.

    The rookie is worth a gamble.

Round 14

    Better get my kicker now before the run begins.
  2. C.J. Prosise, RB/SEA
    Waiver wire fodder if he doesn’t pan out.

    Decent PPR option and always a chance he breaks out.

  8. Adam Thielen, WR/MIN

  9. Jamaal Williams, RB/GB
    If Montgomery doesn’t pan out at RB, this could be a good pick.
  10. Stephen Hauschka, K/BUF
    Pretty solid career in SEA should transfer to New York.
  11. Josh Lambo, K/JAX
    Lambo could face a bunch of FG attempts in 2017.
  12. Jared Cook, TE/OAK
    Cook lands in a burgeoning offense in OAK.

Round 15

  1. Chris Boswell, K/PIT
    I like PIT’s chances of putting points on the board.

    Surprised he slipped this far, but everybody’s avoiding the committee.
  3. Zay Jones, WR/BUF
    Sleeper time!

    Just grab the next best defense.
  7. Austin Hooper, TE/ATL
    Could be a breakout player in his second season.
  8. John Ross, WR/CIN

  9. Zach Miller, TE/CHI
    Good pass-catching tight end and safety valve.
  10. John Brown, WR/ARI
    Hoping he can finally break out like he should.
  11. Mike Williams, WR/LAC
    Suffered a mild disc herniation, but worth the risk here.
  12. Marlon Mack, RB/IND
    Mr. Irrelevant may not be so irrelevant.
