7) Marcedes Lewis, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars
Team: Brian Polking | Team Roster | League Scoring

Fantasy football analysis: After a 10-touchdown campaign in 2010, Lewis has seen his role drastically reduced the past couple of seasons. Offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch has already said he plans to change that this year by using the 6-foot-6 Lewis as more of an offensive weapon rather than a blocker. With receiver Justin Blackmon suspended for the first four games and the Jaguars short on offensive playmakers in general, 50-60 grabs and 6-plus scores aren't out of the question if Lewis is actually turned loose as a pass-catcher.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster

8) New England Patriots D/ST
Team: Nicholas Minnix | Team Roster | League Scoring

Fantasy football analysis: I don't think too many are high on the player I have in mind at QB2, and I leave kicker until the end, so might as well grab the D. I love the Bengals' unit, but I figured it'd be too late to get it by this time. The Pats' D is KFFL's top-rated unit. I like the possibilities considering their schedule and track record. I'm a little more comfortable with them because I think their O's greater emphasis on the running game will put its D in fewer compromising positions.

9) Knowshon Moreno, RB, Denver Broncos
Team: Jared Byrd | Team Roster | League Scoring

Fantasy football analysis: Moreno is listed as the No. 3 running back on Denver's depth chart behind Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball, but all three players could see a decent amount of playing time. I don't see him gaining more than 500 yards this year but I could certainly do a lot worse when it comes to picking a RB4.

10) Dexter McCluster, WR, Kansas City Chiefs
Team: Ryan R. Bonini | Team Roster | League Scoring

Fantasy football analysis: Andy Reid has been intrigued by him for quite some time and when you look at the KC offense it's basically Bowe, Charles and nobody else to catch passes from Alex Smith. McCluster can be that key third option and potential PPR gold. Look for Reid to find ways to get him the ball in space, which will significantly improve his low YAC. I'm expecting 70 receptions, around 800 yards and a couple of TDs.

11) Latavius Murray, RB, Oakland Raiders
Team: Cory J. Bonini | Team Roster | League Scoring

Fantasy football analysis: Having already drafted Darren McFadden, Murray made sense for me. He is a high-upside player and comes with mitigated risk this late in the draft. Hopefully he can beat out the bland Rashad Jennings.

12) Bilal Powell, RB, New York Jets
Team: Keith Hernandez | Team Roster | League Scoring

Fantasy football analysis: Powell has clearly become the handcuff option to Chris Ivory in New York. Although I don't own Ivory, he's had trouble staying healthy and has never been a lead back in his career over a full season, so it remains to be seen if he can handle it. The Jets' offense could be the worst in the league, but their running attack has to be more productive than the alternative.
