Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Round 4 Round 5

Round 6 Pick 1

Justin Mertes-Mistretta- The Sports Bank

Pick: WR Hines Ward PIT

Consistency is king here. He may not have the highest ceiling, but I can bank on 8-9 TDs and around 1,000 yards. I had to take a safe WR here after gambling on VJax.

Round 6 Pick 2

Walter Cherepinsky- Walter Football

Pick: TE Antonio Gates SD

I really don’t like taking tight ends early, but Antonio Gates provides way too much value at the beginning of Round 6.

Round 6 Pick 3

Paul Greco- Fantasy Pros 911

Pick: TE Jermichael Finley GB

This kid is getting all the hype this preseason and deservingly so. He’s a huge target inside the red zone and I’m looking for him to top last years numbers.

Round 6 Pick 4

Steve Adler- Fantasy Daddy

Pick: TE Jason Witten DAL

Waited for a TE to come back my way and it paid off. Witten did catch less than four passes in any game during 2009, that is amazing consistency week to week. I realize his touchdowns are what drag him down, but I expect those to at least double this season with more attention being paid to Miles Austin.

Round 6 Pick 5

Scott Carasik- Scardraft

Pick: RB Ben Tate HOU

I’m going to take Houston’s new starting back here. While it may seem like a bit of a reach, I truly believe he could be a big sleeper this year.

Round 6 Pick 6

Eric Stashin- Rotoprofessor

Pick: QB Joe Flacco BAL

I’ve considered him with each of my last two picks and at this point, don’t want to risk him coming off the board before I pick again. With the addition of Anquan Boldin, along with the presence of Ray Rice keeping defenses honest, he has the potential to develop into one of the elite QB in the league this season.

Round 6 Pick 7

Sam Arker- Rothstein Sports

Pick: TE Vernon Davis

I really need Davis here to perform as well as he did in 09. I have had to settle for players in recent picks that I felt were a reach, but based on my draft position, it was necessary.

Round 6 Pick 8

Hunter Ansley- Draft Zoo

Pick: WR Johnny Knox CHI

Word out of Bears camp is that Knox is the guy that Mike Martz wants to feature this season. He’s holding off Devin Aromashodu pretty easily right now, and if he’s really going to be the No. 1 in that offense, then I’ll take him as my WR3. It’s risky picking two second year guys in two of my WR slots, but I like both Nicks and Knox a lot this season.

Round 6 Pick 9

Steven Lourie- Football Fan Spot

Pick: WR Malcom Floyd SD

After the Chargers cut Chris Chambers, Floyd had 34 catches for 525 yards in 8 games. Stretch that across 16 games and that’s 68 catches for 1050 yards. Add in the fact that Vincent Jackson is suspended for 3 weeks and could hold out until week 7 making Floyd the #1 option in the Chargers’ explosive offense for 3 weeks, and possibly 6 weeks or longer and Floyd might as well have the words “Fantasy Sleeper” stamped across his forehead. At 6-5, he’ll also be one of Philip Rivers’ favorite goal line threats. His ADP is significantly lower than this spot, but in an experts league, I’m not taking any chances with a guy who is a legitimate WR2 and, in my opinion, a lock for 1000 yards.

Round 6 Pick 10

Jeff Malloy- Beast or Bust

Pick: WR Santonio Holmes NYJ

A 6th-Round run on Tight Ends, or an impending 4 game suspension doesn’t phase BeastOrBust.com as we select Santonio Holmes at this spot. At this point in the draft it’s all about finding the right value, and landing one of only 8 players to top 1,200 receiving yards in 2009 does just that. Reports from Jets camp have him already labeled as Mark Sanchez’s favorite and most reliable target. Upon his return from suspension he will be playing for a contract in 2011 and should easily exceed the WR3 numbers we drafted him for. We expect he could even move into our WR2 position by seasons end. Say No To Drugs.

Round 6 Pick 11

Vin Sadicario- FF Toolbox

Pick: WR Mike Wallace PIT

Mike Wallace is a high upside wide receiver entering the 2010 season. Wallace led the NFL in yards per catch in 2009, and should see increased targets in 2010 following the departure on Santonio Holmes and the increased age of Hines Ward. Wallace is primed for a breakout season in 2010.

Round 6 Pick 12

Ryan Lester- Lester’s Legends

Pick: QB Brett Favre MIN

I am not from the camp that believes that Favre’s retirement is for real. With all the weapons he has at his disposal in Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin, Bernard Berrian, Visanthe Shiancoe, and Adrian Peterson, Favre should turn in another big year.
