Default #5 pick in 12 team league - Who should I select?

Ok guys, I am in a 12 team league and I have the #5 overall pick in a snake-style draft. I know the guys in my league very well and I really expect that LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles, Adrian Peterson, and Calvin Johnson will be off the board when I pick at #5. Thus, these 4 players are not included in the poll.

This is not a keeper league and has a standard scoring system - 1 point for every 10 yards rushing/receiving, 6 points for rushing/receiving TDs, 1/2 point per reception, 1 point for every 25 yards passing, 4 points for passing TDs. It is a flex league but we must start 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE. So, my question is who should I select at #5 overall, assuming the above players have already been selected, which I fully expect (baring injury, of course)? Any votes/comments you have are greatly appreciated. My draft isn't until Labor Day but I want to start thinking about this now. Thanks guys...you're the best!

So I think Ka'Deem Carey is going to get some touches...so I tend to like Marshawn Lynch over Matt Forte.

Forte is the most likely choice but Lacy has the higher ceiling. Fantasy is all about that go big or go home so I like him.

People will disagree but I believe taking a QB in the first round is ridiculous. Even 2nd round is ridiculous. I usually wait round 6-7 to pick a QB.

Thanks for the votes and comments so far folks, I do appreciate it. There are so many ways I could go in my opinion at #5. My draft is not until Labor Day so please keep the votes and comments coming!

So far, you guys seem to like Forte at #5 (assuming he's there, which I think he will be). With Trestman as the head coach the Bears offense definitely looked much more dynamic last year, and obviously Forte is a huge part of it. He's great out of the backfield as well.

As the same time, I understand why some people might like Lacy and Lynch at #5 as well. Lacy has a huge upside, and Lynch is on a great team.

QBs in my league don't normally go really high, but it doesn't get much safer than Peyton Manning at #5, does it? I mean, those are sure-fire points right there. That is tempting. Maybe I should just not overthink it and take him at #5.

I have to say, although there are no votes for Graham so far, I am really tempted to take him at #5 and I'll tell you why. We have to start a TE and Graham basically puts up numbers of a top 5 WR in my league with our scoring system. It is a real benefit to have a TE who puts up huge numbers at that position. It's huge position value. Does that make sense? Am I insane for thinking Graham at #5?

If I have a top 5 pick in any standard scoring league I'm taking one of the top 5 RB's always.
