Bruno Boys Fantasy Football Pick: With the 59th overall pick we debated on grabbing our WR3, RB3 or targeting one of the top three TE’s but ultimately felt it was best to snag a running back to add depth and protect our selection of Knowshon Moreno in the fourth round.

All along we had hoped that Marshawn Lynch would fall to us at 5.11 but he was taken by Owners Edge/Fan Ball just one pick before us at 5.10.

Still sticking true to our plan we opted for one the most controversial running backs of the preseason in Thomas Jones of the New York Jets. Despite being a top-five running back last season, many fantasy football owners’ are writing off Jones’ and thinking he will be a BUST in 2009.

Trust us we aren’t expecting Jones to repeat his 2008 season. In fact we ranked him as a Pepto BUST pick entering the season, but we felt it was good value at the end of the fifth round and when the matchup is right the veteran will be a solid option.
