Risky draft picks that could payoff huge!

Kenny Britt- I luv this guy he has huge upside.  I drafted him in the 10th round the other night in a 12 team league i think that is huge value.  Last year i know he only really played in two games (hurt in the third game) but he was unstoppable he was a man among boys.  14 receptions, 271 yards receiving and three touchdowns those are pretty solid numbers in my book.  The fact that he is being drafted so late gives him great value, now I'm not saying he will fall to you in the 10th round but i would be OK with drafting him as high as my number 3 receiver.  I would look to draft him in rounds 8-10 he is worth the risk.

Peyton Manning- Guy gets better and better each time out there and last game we saw he can take a hit.  Manning and Eric Decker look to be on the same page they connected twice for TD 's.  He made a few very tough throws and his accuracy looks better and better each week.  If you miss out on the top tier guys like Rodgers, Brees, Brady, Stafford, and Newton it might be worth waiting a little later on drafting a QB and targeting P.Manning in the later rounds.

Kevin Smith- He as of now is the Lions starting RB and he is being drafted around the 9th, 10th round.  Javid Best and i hate to say this but he may never play another snap in the NFL.  Best is out the first 6 games after being placed on the PUP list so that's automatic.  Leshoure will start the season on suspension so its Kevin Smith job to lose.  He is a solid all around back who catches the ball well and knows the Lions system.  Smith is more suited for PPR leagues.
