Bruno Boys Fantasy Football Pick: With our second round selection, the 14th overall, we went to the great football state of Texas to grab wide receiver, Andre Johnson, of the Houston Texans. Second in fantasy points among wide receivers in 2008, Johnson led all wide receivers in receptions with 115. With that many catches, points are going to come in bunches for the man.

Round 2 Notes: Remember that old RB-RB theory? This draft debunks that. With the rule changes the NFL has made to facilitate the passing game, the fantasy experts seem to believe that wide receivers hold just as much value as their running back counterparts. Through two rounds, only 50% of the experts went RB-RB, 33% went RB-WR, while the remaining 17% went WR-WR. Yes, folks, as Bob Dylan would say, “the times they are a changin’.”

As for the individual selections themselves, first and foremost, there’s little problem with the order the wide receivers went off the board. I say little instead of no, because I do disagree with Reggie Wayne going ahead of Calvin Johnson. I know Wayne has the better quarterback throwing the ball his way, but Megatron proved last season it doesn’t matter who’s tossing him the pig skin, he’s a man-beast. Johnson’s 11 double-digit performances to Wayne’s seven in 2008 prove this.

In regards to the running backs, it is a bit surprising to see Clinton Portis fall behind Marion Barber, Pierre Thomas, and Ronnie Brown. However, with the announcement that LaDell Betts will be the Washington Redskins’ third down back added to the weariness fantasy owners already felt in regards to Portis’ durability.

It’s not completely shocking to see the back drop from the Tier Three runners to more of a Tier Four or Tier Five option. At that point, it is a “pick your poison” situation with the ultimate decision a gut call.
