There are plenty of Golden Bears on Matthew Berry's fantasy board. Let's go down the line.

Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks, 5th ($52): Beast Mode has become one of the most popular athletes in the NFL, so his value is probably a little inflated compared to other running backs you can get in an auction draft. Still, there has been no more of a sure bet than Marshawn producing in Seattle, and he still might have a few prime years left in him.

C.J. Anderson, Denver Broncos, 7th ($50): Anderson had a breakout season and is somehow ranked in the top 10 right now. Although Denver likes to liberally rotate ball carrying responsibilities, there's no doubt C.J. is proving that he's worth starter's carries in Denver.

Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers, 20th ($37): This always feels like great value, and Rodgers might be a bargain if people sell on Green Bay having a good season without Jordy Nelson.

Justin Forsett, Baltimore Ravens, 34th ($25): Forsett was actually named one of the players Berry really considers a must get, particularly at this value (see the video below). That Forsett is going at half the price of Anderson is really awesome value for you. Get him if you can.

Keenan Allen, San Diego Chargers, 40th ($20): Allen suffered from a slight sophomore slump, but I imagine he'll be back to form as the most consistent Cal receiver on an NFL sideline, particularly with a great quarterback in tow.

DeSean Jackson, Washington Redskins, 41st ($20): Jackson had a solid year with Washington, but inconsistent quarterback play hampered week-to-week production.

Shane Vereen, New York Giants, 78th ($4): Another bargain pick, Vereen could be a fantasy sleeper because of his pass catching abilities. Consider him as a potential second running back.

Marvin Jones, Cincinnati Bengals, 138th ($1): Jones is back after an injury ended his season, and is another bargain player. I expect him to have a great year in that Bengals pass attack. If you're trying to figure out who to get as your fourth wide receiver, I'd go with Jones.

Richard Rodgers, Green Bay Packers, 278th: With Nelson out, Richard is someone you should definitely find on the waiver wire and stock him. R. Rodgers could be the #1 TE, and A. Rodgers loves passing to tight ends.

What's your fantasy team looking like? What Cal Bears will you end up drafting?
