Fantasy Football Experts Mock Draft:Round 5

Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Round 4 Round 6

Round 5 Pick 1

Ryan Lester- Lester’s Legends

Pick: RB Joseph Addai IND

Taking a rookie RB, even if he is in a great situation like Mattews, is a bit risky. Addai is a productive back, and perhaps even more important, one that Manning trusts. He can produce on the ground and through the air. Quality RBs are drying up, meaning I wouldn’t get a good RB3 the next time my picks swing around, so I am filling the need now.

Round 5 Pick 2

Vin Sadicario- FF Toolbox

Pick: TE Dallas Clark IND

With no sure things left on the board at running back, I decided to go with the top tight end available. Clark is the safest tight end on the board, as he does not have the question marks surrounding him, as some of the other top options do. I will gladly take Clark at the top of the fifth round, as it is unlikely that any of the top tier tight ends will be around when I pick next.

Round 5 Pick 3

Jeff Malloy- Beast or Bust

Pick: WR Percy Harvin MIN

We are going to stick with the playmakers theme for our wide receiver unit. No WR in the NFL broke more tackles than Percy Harvin last year. In addition to his slot receiver duties, Harvin is a threat out of the backfield and in the return game. We considered Hakeem Nicks and his immense upside with this pick, but ultimately decided that Harvin’s triple threat skills were the best fit. Whether Brett Favre comes back or not, we are expecting steady growth from Harvin this season as he develops into a reliable WR2.

Round 5 Pick 4

Steven Lourie- Football Fan Spot

Pick: RB Felix Jones DAL

Felix Jones strikes me as the type of guy who could be a perennial fantasy football 1st round pick if he gets 300+ carries per year. The issues, he still has to share carries with Marion Barber and he hasn’t had more than 154 carries in a season in any level since high school. He did put on about 10 pounds of muscle this offseason and if he can maintain his speed with the heavier weight, the added muscle should make him more durable and if he starts showing that he can handle 20+ carries in a game, it’s going to be pretty obvious to the Cowboys coaching staff who the best running back on the team is. I love Felix Jones’ upside at this point.

Round 5 Pick 5

Hunter Ansley- Draft Zoo

Pick: WR Hakeem Nicks NYG

Nicks has great potential this season after a nice rookie year, and Eli Manning should be more comfortable throwing his way. I think he’s got a good shot at becoming the Giants’ leading receiver, and his upside is high enough for me to take a shot on him as my WR2 considering his size and strength make him a unique fit in New York’s red zone passing game. Plus, I don’t think there’s any way Nicks will fall back to me with my next pick, so I’m not taking any chances on missing out on him.

Round 5 Pick 6

Sam Arker- Rothstein Sports

Pick: RB Brandon Jacobs NYG

Word out of Giants camp is that Jacobs has looked better than ever. I don’t mind a buy low strategy with him here since I still need a quality starter at my RB2. In the 5th round, I would be happy with 1000 yards and 8 touchdowns.

Round 5 Pick 7

Eric Stashin- Rotoprofessor

Pick: WR Dwayne Bowe KC

With my RB set, it’s time to find a counterpart to Andre Johnson. Bowe lost time last year due to injury, but had over 2,000 yards over his first two years and could be primed for a career year in 2010. At this point in the draft, that’s more then enough for me.

Round 5 Pick 8

Scott Carasik- Scardraft

Pick: TE Tony Gonzalez ATL

I’d be stupid here to not take the top player at his position ever. Especially since Mr. Gonzalez doesn’t seem to show any signs of slowing down yet.

Round 5 Pick 9

Steve Adler- Fantasy Daddy

Pick: WR Wes Welker NE

Welker looks to be healthy heading into the season and that’s good enough for me. You don’t earn points for activity (PPR), but you do earn points for production and that is what Welker will do, produce. Based on the what is left at the wide receiver position I feel more comfortable talking Welker in this spot than taking a tight end and crossing my fingers he comes back to me. I’m sure a solid tight end or running back will make it back my way in the next round.

Round 5 Pick 10

Paul Greco- Fantasy Pros 911

Pick: RB Marion Barber DAL

Get a No.1 guy here was important. After covering the Cowboys camp, head coach Wade Phillips assured me that Barber was still man, especially when it comes to goal-line.

Round 5 Pick 11

Walter Cherepinsky- Walter Football

Pick: WR Mike Sims Walker JAC

Mike Sims-Walker was pretty inconsistent last year, but that’s because he was often hurt. When he was healthy, he was a big producer. He’s not the ideal WR2, but I think he’s passable in that spot

Round 5 Pick 12

Justin Mertes-Mistretta- The Sports Bank

Pick: WR Vincent Jackson SD

I’m taking a huge risk here taking VJax, given his suspension and holdout. However, if he plays by week 4, I just got a huge steal here. When he’s on the field he’s a top-5 WR.
