Yahoo 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. At the end of June, we started our ADP Mock Draft series with High Stakes Fantasy Football.  Now we get to compare the "experts" to the "Average Joe's" of Yahoo Fantasy Football.


Yahoo Fantasy Football ADP Mock Draft
*I removed all DEF/ST and Kickers from the list

*I made slight adjustments to the order 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

Same start as the High Stakes with 6 RBs, but the back end features Peyton Manning this time, along with 3 WRs, 1 RB and 1 TE.  Josh Gordon was a 1st round pick in the High Stakes ADP, but his off field issues have made him nearly undraftable.

Round 2

Half of the teams followed up their 1st round RB pick with another, while 5 teams finished the 2nd round without any RB.  Team 7 went Calvin Johnson/Aaron Rodgers, Team 8 reunited Jimmy Graham with Brees, Team 9 paired Manning with Julio Jones, Team 11 went Demaryius Thomas/Brandon Marshall with Team 12 drafting A.J. Green and Dez Bryant.

Round 3

9 WRs went in the 3rd round, with Alfred Morris, Julius Thomas and Ryan Mathews the odd balls.  Team 12 went WR/WR/WR...

Round 4

...and then added Vernon Davis at TE.  Team 7 and Team 8 also finished the round without a single running back on their roster.  Team 9 finally added selected its first RB in Andre Ellington.  Matthew Stafford, Andrew Luck and Cam Newton are off the board.

Round 5

Reggie Bush, C.J. Spiller, Frank Gore and Rashad Jennings become teams RB1.  Matt Ryan, Robert Griffin III and Tom Brady are drafted.  Just 3 teams are left without a QB.  9 QBs were drafted between round 7-10 in the High Stakes Mock.

Round 6

Nick Foles started the round, leaving just 2 teams QB-less.  Bishop Sankey was the 1st rookie drafted and will team up with Bush on Team 7.  Greg Olsen, Dennis Pitta and Kyle Rudolph were drafted, leaving 3 teams without a TE.

Rounds 7-10

Tony Romo and Russell Wilson were the final 2 QBs drafted.  Toby Gerhart teamed up with Spiller on Team 8, Chris Johnson joined Mathews on Team 11 and Shane Vereen paired up with Jennings on Team 12 to give all teams 2 RBs.  In the High Stakes Mock, this was completed by the 5th round!
