Round 3 notables
RB Tre Mason, St. Louis Rams: Intriguing pick ... probably better long-term value than anything meaningful from him in 2014. Have to think he is next in line if something happens to Zac Stacy, though. Handcuff and/or deep flier is the initial recommendation.
RB Terrance West, Cleveland Browns: West has legit potential to be a fantasy contributor this year, especially around the goal line. He could directly back up and even share some touches with Ben Tate, whose injury-prone ways make West even more appealing.
RB Jerick McKinnon, Minnesota Vikings: A former option quarterback moved to RB ... Adrian Peterson (groin) needs a spell and a change-of-pace, which is exactly what you will find in the dynamic McKinnon. He has tangible fantasy value as a flier in PPR leagues.
RB Charles Sims, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Only draftable in 2014 if he beats out Bobby Rainey ... one-trick pony as a big-play specialist.
RB/WR Dri Archer, Pittsburgh Steelers: Super fun to watch but extremely limited because of his size and undefined role ... likely a slot WR and splash weapon for the Steelers.
WR Donte Moncrief, Indianapolis Colts: He may not get a shot this year but has awesome potential in 2015 if Reggie Wayne retires and Hakeem Nicks doesn't return. Tuck away his name or remember him for the waiver wire if Wayne's knee reconstruction is too tough to overcome and Nicks is, well, Nicks.
WR John Brown, Arizona Cardinals: While he fits Arizona's need for a slot wideout, the small-school product may need extra time to produce. Exciting and fast. Avoid him for now.
WR Josh Huff, Philadelphia Eagles: Unlikely to have immediate fantasy value but will give a good effort to win a role as a deep threat in an offense he is quite familiar with from his time at Oregon. Huff is a name to remember for 2015 and beyond.
TE Richard Rodgers, Green Bay Packers: Rodgers to Rodgers, eh? While he isn't a burner, the rook will likely compete for a starting job. He has pro-style experience but a few talented guys ahead of him. Ignore him heading into drafts.
