High Stakes Fantasy Football ADP Mock Draft

Average Draft Position is important to remember when you enter your fantasy football drafts this summer. If you do you homework, you will know which players are being undervalued and who is being overvalued, as well as the same for certain positions. This year, I am starting our ADP Mock Drafts with ADP from High Stakes drafts. Anyone who is willing to play in these expensive leagues is going to be an expert and willing to put in the time and effort it would take to win these leagues, and it starts with the draft!  Make sure to follow along this summer as we roll out weekly ADP Mocks from Yahoo, ESPN and CBS fantasy football!
High Stakes Fantasy Football ADP Mock Draft

*I made slight adjustments to the order just to give each team 2 RBs before a team could add a 3rd, and so that teams could not draft 2 QBs or TEs


Round 1

Pretty straight forward with 5 running backs in top 6 picks, and further proof that you should avoid RBs in the 1st round after the top 5 are gone.  The 2nd half of this 12 team mock featured 4 WRs, 1 TE and 1 RB.

Round 2

7 of the 12 picks made were running backs, but just 3 rosters ended up with 2 backs, Team 2 (LeSean McCoy / Reggie Bush) Team 3 (Adrian Peterson / Montee Ball) & Team 4 (Matt Forte / DeMarco Murray).  Team 7 (A.J. Green / Alshon Jeffery) & Team 12 (Jimmy Graham / Julio Jones) ended the 2nd round without a RB

Round 3

Peyton Manning is the 1st QB drafted and was the 27th overall pick.  4 more running backs were selected but just Team 5 (Johnson/Foster) & Team 6 (Lacy/Morris) finished their pairing.  Way to early for me to be drafting Gronk.

Round 4

Just 3 running backs drafted, but Team 1 (Jamaal Charles / Andre Ellington) Team 7 (C.J. Spiller / Ray Rice) & Team 10 (Giovani Bernard / Ryan Mathews) grabbed their 2nd RB.  The other 9 selections were all WRs.

Round 5

By the time the 5th round was over, all 12 teams had their 2 RBs:  Team 8 (Le'Veon Bell / JoiqueBell) Team 9 (Doug Martin / Chris Johnson) Team 11(Marshawn Lynch / Ben Tate) & Team 12 (Shane Vereen / Trent Richardson).

Round 6

With Aaron Rodgers & Drew Brees going in the previous round, you would have thought to have seen a run on QBs, but there wasn't a single QB selected in this round.  Frank Gore was selected at the beginning of this round, and Carlos Hyde at the end.  Interested to see how the San Francisco 49ers handle their RB situation this year.  I personally think that is way to soon for Hyde.....

Rounds 7-10

....especially when you consider Pierre Thomas, Fred Jackson and Stevan Ridley went soon after.  Andrew Luck & Matthew Stafford bookend round 7, but in the 8th and 9th rounds just Nick Foles, Cam Newton and Matt Ryan were drafted.  5 QBs went in the 10th.
