109. Ryan Williams (ADP 8.12)-
The Cardinals are bringing Williams along slowly but he is working with the team and should be in preseason action soon. Expect Williams to be in the mix with Beanie Wells in a committee, but he could pull away from the veteran as the season moves along.
110. Anquan Boldin (ADP 9.04)-
A better option in PPR leagues Boldin is past his prime and I’m not sure he’s worth a roster spot in at least eight and ten team leagues. Look for Torrey Smith and tight ends Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta to have expanded roles and receive more targets, than last year.
Jacoby Jones will also be the teams third receiver and while Boldin will be a valuable part of the offense, he’s just not the same player after the catch as he used to be.
111. Giants Defense (ADP 12.10)-
Not a fan of the Giants defense this high. Yes, the have one of the top front lines for pressure in the game, but the secondary is troublesome again. Terrell Thomas re-injured his knee and Prince Amukamara is raw with continued foot problems this off-season.
112. David Wilson (ADP 9.06)-
Wilson has terrific upside but I’m not sold he merits a pick even this high in redraft leagues. If you’re willing to wait for half a season he’s worth it, but this is Ahmad Bradhsaw’s show until he falls to injury.
113. Sidney Rice (ADP 9.12)-
Stay away from Sidney Rice at your draft. There is a reason why the Seahawks are desperate to bring in a veteran to play his position and that’s because they are concerned about his health. Rice claims he will be active week one, but I’m not buying it and we should stay away.
114. Darrius Heyward-Bey (ADP 9.02)-
With a continued youth movement in Oakland’s receiving core Heyward-Bey better be ready to step his game up or he may lose his job by seasons end. The Raiders have been waiting for the former top ten pick to develop into a WR1, and it’s time for this fourth-year receiver to deliver. Look to Heyward-Bey as a decent depth option around this point in the draft.
115. Randall Cobb (ADP 10.05)-
Love Cobb’s ability but perhaps we are being a little too optimistic about his role in redraft leagues. The Packers are loaded with receiver talent and Cobb will still have to fight with Donald Driver and James Jones for the No.3 receiver position.
It’s probably another year or so before we see Cobb transform into a true option to hold in redraft leagues. Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings are cemented in as the starters, so it is a tough situation for Cobb to make a consistent impact.
116. David Akers (ADP 12.11)-
Too high for a kicker even for David Akers. The 49ers ace will likely lose out on opportunities as the team has brought in more talent to convert drives into touchdowns. Still, Akers is a great kicker and should be a top five scorer by years end.
117. Steelers Defense (ADP 11.05)-
With Dick LeBeau calling the shots you know this group is going to be good again. The Steelers do a terrific job of understanding the kind of players they want through the draft to fit each position. While this group started out slow last year, I expect them to play better with a full offseason.
118. Mikel Leshoure (ADP 9.08)-
You will have a wait a couple of weeks for Leshoure to find the field but that’s not all that bad. Early in the season you should be going with your top picks anyway so bringing Leshoure in is a decent move for your depth. I like this runner better in standard leagues in contrast to PPR and he should get his chance to start at some point.
119. Justin Blackmon (ADP 10.08)-
Not a fan of Blackmon at this point in the draft. The rookie struggled in OTAs and he’s got Blaine Gabbert as his quarterback. Go with veteran Laurent Robinson off this team as the first receiver to take.
120. DeAngelo Williams (ADP 9.04)-
Not a bad spot in the draft to land a starting running back in the league. Williams will need to score his touchdowns from a distance but his game is built to do just that. Look to Williams as a decent backup for matchup play and bye weeks.
