Bruno Boys Fantasy Football Pick

With pick No. 62 overall and San Diego Chargers’ tight end Antonio Gates still sitting on the board, it’s a no-brainer for us here. Many might think it wise to grab our starting quarterback instead, but the depth at the QB slot is much greater than that at TE.

After all, with Jason Witten already off the board, Gates and Tony Gonzalez are the only elite tight ends remaining who we feel can act as a low end WR2 despite being in the TE slot.

Were we to pass on a tight end here, we’d be left with a Tier 2 or Tier 3 type player manning the position.


Round Six Notes

Round Six definitely has some picks worth noting. For starters, there is Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ wide receiver Antonio Bryant.

The fact that Bryant, who had over 1,200 receiving yards and seven TDs in 2008 for 157 fantasy points, good for 8th among wide receivers, is not going until round six demonstrates the fears fantasy owners have for him for 2009, namely arising from poor quarterback play in Tampa and a torn meniscus suffered in the pre-season.

Matt Schaub is another noteworthy selection here. Schaub, who is now the 11th quarterback taken off the board, is definitely a man with upside, especially when you consider the fact that he has Andre Johnson, Kevin Walter, and Owen Daniels to throw to.

If Schaub stays healthy, he easily becomes a steal here as he has the potential and supporting cast needed to be a top five fantasy QB.

Finally, there’s Reggie Bush. Routinely an early round selection in year’s past, Bush wasn’t even the first back from the New Orleans Saints selected in this draft.

In fact, it wasn’t even close as Pierre Thomas went a full 52 slots ahead of Bush. Yes, Bruno Boys Nation, the Reggie Bush hype has officially flat-lined.
