Team: Ilan Mochari | Team Roster
Reason: Jones is a handcuff to Bears running back Matt Forte, my first-round pick. More than that, Jones has the potential to rack up huge stats in a third-down role, especially in a PPR format: In 2006, he caught 61 passes. A former first-round pick and only 26 years old, Jones also has 27 career touchdowns in five seasons. I won't hesitate to start him if Forte gets hurt.
2) Green Bay Packers team defense
Team: Mike Egnak | Team Roster
Reason: The Packers play the Cleveland Browns when my No. 1 defense is off, giving me a solid replacement for that week. They're also good enough to start against more favorable matchups, as they have the ability to score a decent amount of touchdowns. I feel 35 sacks, 25 turnovers and three touchdowns are a decent expectations of them.
Team: John Kotch Jr. | Team Roster
Reason: After having Tommy John surgery on his throwing elbow prior to the 2008 season, Delhomme still managed to have a productive year. He should be totally healthy for the 2009 season and has a good supporting cast on offense. Wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett is expected to step up. I think Delhomme has a good chance at an increase in production. I consider him a good value as a quality backup at this point in the draft.
4) New England Patriots defensive team
Team: Bryce McRae | Team Roster
Reason: With Tom Brady (knee) returning, the offense should score often, putting pressure on opposing offenses to keep up. In New England's record-breaking 2007 season, they ranked second in sacks (47) and tied for sixth in interceptions (sixth). They added talent to their D in the draft and still have the genius of Bill Belichick guiding them. Oh, and they also play four games at home in November.
Team: Keith Hernandez | Team Roster
Reason: Gage played well in 2008 and set a career high in touchdowns with six while becoming the team's No. 1 receiver. I know the Titans don't have a high-octane passing attack, but I will settle with Gage as a reserve wideout.
Team: Matt Wilson | Team Roster
Reason: The running backs have been thoroughly picked over, so I thought I'd add another receiver for depth. I know wide receivers Josh Morgan, Michael Crabtree and Brandon Jones are the future in San Francisco, but I don't think Bruce is washed up. The 36-year-old Bruce formed chemistry with quarterback Shaun Hill during the second half of 2008, catching 41 balls for 483 yards and three touchdowns. On the season, the former St. Louis Ram hauled in 61 catches for 835 yards and seven scores, so he obviously can still play. Bruce should continue to start - at least for the first part of the season - but I know his age, the presence of the younger receivers and the team's decision to switch to a heavy power-running attack could hurt his numbers. If Bruce's production sags or he spends a lot of time on the sidelines holding a clipboard, I'm only out a 15th-round pick.
Team: Tim Piotrowski | Team Roster
Reason: I decided to take Faulk at this point more for his receiving skills than his running ability. In a point-per-reception league, his versatility out of the backfield will help tremendously. I would like around 50 receptions, 350 yards and one touchdown. Any rushing stats he can put up will be gladly taken.
Team: Cory J. Bonini | Team Roster
Reason: Twelve defenses had already been drafted before I selected my first, so I knew I could hold off and it wouldn't matter. I went with Gostkowski as my top-ranked place kicker and expect him to be no worse than the third-best scorer at this fickle position in 2009.
Team: Tim Heaney | Team Roster
Reason: I wasn't too concerned about taking a No. 5 wideout, so I waited to take Burton here. He's still battling Laurent Robinson for the No. 2 spot, but Burton has more experience with quarterback Marc Bulger. I'm not putting a ton of stock into Burton emerging, but he showed flashes last season, and he was the last viable starting receiver left that had some upside to him. He may be waiver wire fodder soon, too.
Team: Nicholas Minnix | Team Roster
Reason: Quarterback Carson Palmer is 100 percent (we think). The Bengals have rededicated themselves on offense (we think, again). Henry has turned a corner (he says). OK, it's not exactly cement. Back against the wall, maybe Henry does something with his ninth live. Considering his talent, and what's left, he's easily worth a 15th-round "gamble."
Team: Ryan R. Bonini | Team Roster
Reason: I needed a fifth back with a lot of upside, and Betts gives me that. If Clinton Portis stays healthy, Betts provides little return to my team. If something happens to Portis, the sky is the limit, and I'll take that chance in Round 15.
Team: Kostas Bolos | Team Roster
Reason: Crosby should get plenty of opportunities to put points on the board behind a potent Packers' offense. He led the NFL in points in 2007 and has averaged 36.5 field goal attempts the last two seasons..
