I have him top-three in PPR, so I wasn't surprised.

Why so? I see Witten as pretty good value there and other than Hernandez I don't see a TE with near equal value.

Just had Hernandez well ahead of him. His age is starting to work against him and once Dez emerged he took more of a back seat role in the offense. He's consistent and very good, but I think his upside is slightly capped.

Fair enough. Witten's lack of TD production is more the worry for me than production. I think Dez B helps Witten as it keeps Ds from blanketing him. Uncertainty of other options in the pass game should mean a stead supply of targets. A bit concerned about Hernadez tiem share with Gronkowski, probably more than I should.

Fitz in the 4th is a risk I will take 10 times out of 10 in next year's draft

Agreed, had him near the top of my queue.

I also agree, but I think his ADP will be higher if AZ gets a decent QB in the offseason.

Yes, and I think they will now that Andy Reid isn't going to Arizona to "fix" Kevin Kolb, so I'm ranking him as if someone decent comes to town. I'd kind of like to see Matt Moore there -- he had no trouble getting the ball to Brandon Marshall in Miami in 2011 the last time he was a starter.

Danario Alexander at 4.08. Before the ridicules fly I have to say that at this point in the draft, unless you are in the market for a QB, almost every player looks like a guy you could get 2 rounds later. Indeed, if this were a real draft, I might just take another stud QB but I didn't want to do it here because I didn't want to throw everything off. But really...looking at the names that are left, there just isn't anyone to fall in love with.

Crabtree finished as a top-15 WR in PPR scoring, but it wasnt until after SF changed QBs that he really exploded. Crabtree has legit low-end WR1 upside with an entire year of said QB starting, IMHO, and I am happy to get him at 45th overall.
