ROUND 10

Pick 109: Jay Ajayi, Mia, RB39Look, every RB39 in the history of fantasy football has been cuttable. There's a good chance this won't work out. But the key with these picks is to not focus on what could go wrong but instead on what can go right. A healthy-enough Ajayi easily wins the Miami starting job. (Michael Salfino)

Pick 110: Bishop Sankey, Ten, RB40 – Back to the well but this time in round 10 instead of Round 4. Just betting on the prospect pedigree here and lack of competition. Plus a running QB really helps in RB yards per carry because the ends are in no-man's land. (Salfino)

Pick 111: John Brown, Ari, WR47 – Sophomore wideout should take a forward after a solid rookie campaign. In six games with Carson Palmer he averaged 52.5 yards per game and scored three touchdowns. (Brad Evans)

Pick 112: Kendall Wright, Ten, WR48 – Touchdowns for Wright are like fantasy scribes copulating with an attractive member of the opposite sex, an extremely rare occurrence. Still, he's one year removed from a 94-catch season. The crafty dirty worker should hook up with Marcus Mariota early and often, though 5-6 TDs are likely his max. (Evans)

Pick 113: Marques Colston, NO, WR49 – Even in a disappointing season, Colston still managed to top 900 yards. New Orleans hasn't added much competition for targets, so I don't mind his setup this year, despite all the red flags. (Andy Behrens)

Pick 114: Ryan Tannehill, Mia, QB14 – Tannehill actually finished well ahead of QB14 last season, and his situation has improved substantially. An excellent option for those planning to platoon their QBs. (Behrens)

Pick 115: Roy Helu, Oak, RB41 – Handcuff for my L. Murray pick - what, you think T-Rich is the handcuff? Laughable. (Brandon Funson)

Pick 116: Duke Johnson, Cle, RB42 – Perhaps the best receiving RB in the '15 draft class, which means he should see a heavy pass-down load over Crowell, West. (Funston)

Pick 117: David Johnson, Ari, RB43 – Should immediately become Arizona's RZ back and would be a weekly fantasy starter should Andre Ellington go down. (Dalton Del Don)

Pick 118: Philip Rivers, SD, QB15 – He threw for nearly 4,300 yards and 30+ touchdowns last season yet is the No. 15 QB off the board. Please continue to wait on this position. (Del Don)

Pick 119: Larry Fitzgerald, Ari, WR50 – Heck, he was a Top 16 wideout two years ago. Maybe the upside isn't enormous, but there's profit potential here. (Scott Pianowski)

Pick 120: Charles Sims, TB, RB44 – I'm about to do the scariest thing possible, a double-down in the Tampa backfield. Queue the ominous music. (Pianow)

ROUND 11

Pick 121: Doug Martin, TB, RB45 – Generally I think handcuffing is a losing strategy, but if we were playing this out, I'd hope for quick backfield definition so I could cut the other guy. (Pianow)

Pick 122: Cordarrelle Patterson, Min, WR51 – Post-hype discount applies. Patterson was the overdraft of the summer last year, now you get him for nothing. At least I know I'm betting on talent.  (Pianow)

Pick 123: Marvin Jones, Cin, WR52 – He had 10 touchdowns as a sophomore before injuries forced him to miss all of last season. There's upside here. (Del Don)

Pick 124: Colin Kaepernick, SF, QB16 – I'm buying the talk of improved mechanics, and he'll have a legit deep threat (Torrey Smith) for the first time in his career. (Del Don)

Pick 125: Reggie Bush, SF, RB46 – SF still deems him capable of being a featured back, though he's likely to fill mostly a pass-down role unless Hyde underwhelms in the lead. (Funston)

Pick 126: Ryan Mathews, Phi, RB47 – Important handcuff pick for D. Murray owners as PHI is high-volume on the ground, and Murray is coming off a near-500 touch '14 (inc. postseason). (Funston)

Pick 127: Julius Thomas, Jax, TE12 – Obviously the numbers won't look anything like they would have in Denver, but I do think he'll give us 6-8 TDs with one or two big games. At this price, it's enough. (Behrens)

Pick 128: Davante Adams, GB, WR53 – An obvious breakout candidate tied to an all-time QB. We've seen Green Bay produce more than two fantasy-relevant WRs in prior seasons. (Behrens)

Pick 129: Teddy Bridgewater, Min, QB17 – I'm convinced there's no conceivable way Bridgewater finishes outside the QB top-15. He's added weapons (Mike Wallace, Adrian Peterson) and is coming off a rather impressive Year 1. Remember, he completed 72.1 percent of his attempts and notched three 22-plus fantasy point efforts over his final five games. Rising. (Evans)

Pick 130: Dwayne Allen, Ind, TE13 – It's rare for him to creep over 60 yards in a game, but Allen is a red-zone force who crossed the chalk eight times in 12 games last season. I'll gladly pay the minimal cost for TD consistency.  (Evans)

Pick 131: DeAngelo Williams, Pit, RB48 – With zeroRB, you are buying time and this gives me three cheap weeks with a plausible starter. Williams' prospects at producing well are low but I don't need a lot of points, either, with these WRs. (Salfino)

Pick 132: Andre Williams, NYG, RB49 – Jennings is a poor prospect to survive as a starter and that injury can come at any time. Plus Williams is probably the goal-line guy anyway. (Salfino)

ROUND 12

Pick 133: Carson Palmer, Ari, QB18 – We have to take two but Palmer is in that range where he could be a top 12 QB easily, given his receiving corps. The system and coach and are also QB friendly. (Salfino)

Pick 134: Jay Cutler, Chi, QB19 – Wow, you know Cutler's stock is at an all-time low if I am in a position to draft him He's the new Jeff George but George had way more relevance in fantasy than reality. (Salfino)

Pick 135: Joe Flacco, Bal, QB20 – Every year, Flacco is a considered a 'sleeper.' Every year, he fails to measure up. However, with Trestman calling the shots and with a viable arsenal, maybe this is the season he takes a step forward. (Evans)

Pick 136: Josh Huff, Phi, WR54 – Most will talk up Matthews, others Agholor, but Huff could be the breakout star in Philly. The Chipster is enamored with the guy and with a year under his belt, he has better-than-you-think odds of cracking the Eagles' starting lineup. (Evans)

Pick 137: Darren Sproles, Phi, RB50 – Sproles in a half-PPR league, in Round 12? Why yes, I think I will. It's not as if Philly's other backs are unbreakable. (Behrens)

Pick 138: Stevan Ridley, NYJ, RB51 – To be perfectly honest, I've never thought Ridley was a special runner. But I'd give him a shot at November-December fantasy relevance. (Behrens)

Pick 139: Nick Foles, StL, QB21 – Obviously, he loses a lot of value going from PHI to STL, but even Bradford offered some fantasy value in STL when he was healthy. (Funston)

Pick 140: Robert Griffin III, Was, QB22 – Finished final three games of '14 in solid fashion (top 12 fantasy QB), and we've seen the upside - ideal dice roll for a fantasy QB2 roll. (Funston)

Pick 141: Terrance Williams, Dal, WR55 – Still the clear No. 2 WR in a strong Dallas offense that may have to pass more this season with an unclear RB situation. (Del Don)

Pick 142: James Starks, GB, RB53 – Eddie Lacy insurance. Starks would be a top-10 fantasy RB if Lacy were to go down. (Del Don)

Pick 143: Andy Dalton, Cin, QB23 – He was a solid fantasy backup two years ago and the offense has some fun toys. I can live with that. (Pianow)

Pick 144: Marcus Mariota, Ten, QB24 – Put this down in ink - I expect Mariota to have a better career than Jameis Winston. As for this pick, it's only because we need two quarterbacks for this mock. He'll be holding a clipboard while Brees leads me to a mock title. (Pianow)
