Bruno Boys Fantasy Football Pick:  “Oh, thank Heaven, for 7-11!” With the 11th pick of the 7th round (#83 overall), it’s finally time to take our first quarterback. Waiting until the 7th round to grab our signal caller means we have a lot of depth at the running back and wide receiver positions, but it, also, means we’ve missed out on the top tier guys. Still, there are plenty of arms with potential left, so we’re not too worried as we should be able to take two solid guys and play match-ups throughout the year. Leading our quarterback tandem will be Cincinnati Bengals’ quarterback, Carson Palmer. Palmer was a disappointment to many last season as he only appeared in 4 games prior to getting injured, but the man when healthy is phenomenal, going for at least 3,800 passing yards and 26 TDs in each season from 2005 to 2007. If he comes anywhere close to those numbers, we’ve gotten a steal.

Round 7 Notes: When you get to the middle rounds, you’ll notice owners in your draft have one of two preferences. Some will go safe and take veterans (i.e. Hines Ward) that they know will be solid but not spectacular, while others will try and take strike it big by taking young guys with potential (i.e. Donald Brown, Chris Wells, LeSean McCoy). There really is no right way to go; however, here’s a tip - if you’re early picks are reliable and stable, take a gamble, but if they have some question marks surrounding them, go safe.
