What do you do with the last 5 picks in your draft?

I go with gut felt sleepers and handcuff my top back(s), then with my las two picks, usually take a d or Kicker if I don't already have them yet. ;-D

I take the obvious D and K. I usually look to fill my backup QB spot here. Sleepers and depth at RB and WR. Pretty much the same as most others. Last year I got Reggie Wayne in the 6th to last round which was huge.

I try to screw up other teams while picking my "gut players". I took Price, Larry Johnson, and of course my Kicker. I also took Plummer. The goal was to screw the Priest owner and anyone who's QB goes down.

My league is 12 teams. 18 rounds and you must select 2 k'. 2 dst's, 2 te's and 3 qb's, 1 of which MUST be a backup of one of your first 2. So at the end, I'm taking my 3rd qb, my 2nd k and te usually in my last 3 picks. The handful of picks before that, which is what you're probably interested in, I take handcuffs(last year Lamont Jordan, 15th) and sleeper wr's(Roy Williams, 13th and Keenan McCardell, 17th, remember he wasn't reporting to Tampa).
This year I'm targeting Justin McCareins as my end of draft flier. The new offensive coordinatot in Jet-ville is the old coordinator from Tennesse from which McCareins comes. He knew how to use him then(red zone) which is what made him go too early in drafts last year. This year he also has Coles opposite rather than Moss, Jolley is in town and Penny should be healthy by gametime. Since Penny is one of the most accurate passers in the game and the new O.C. knows McCareins, I think he will crack top 20 wr, which would be a huge value where he's drafted(usually around the 13th round).
I also think Derrick Blaylock is interesting this year. Good system in New York, C-Mart may start to wear down sometime in the next 20 years.....and it's worth a 12th rounder maybe, depending on what your roster is looking like, to have someone with the potential of Blaylock sitting behind an aging C-Mart who had a pretty heavy workload last year. Don't bet against C-Mart, but especially if you have him and I might even though I probably won't have him due to my draft position and where he's going, take a flier on Blaylock.

I was going to say the same thing. I will pick guys that other guys will want if they incur an injury. A good backup that could be solid trade bait on one of those "game-time decision" players. But only in one league does my bench play into that strength, as we carry 10 bench players. Not everyone has that luxury.

It all depends on how deep your league is. If its a 12-teamer and goes 18 rounds you might want to check out the "All-American Fantasy Football Keeper League" forum here. That should give you a solid idea on what guys are goin towards the end. Lets just say it ain't pretty


Wasn't much left was there.
