Average Draft Position is important to remember when you enter your fantasy football drafts. If you do your 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 NFCC to the FFC.
*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
LeSean McCoy is the top draft pick on Fantasy Football Calculator, ahead of Jamaal Charles, Adrian Peterson and Matt Forte. 4 of the next 6 picks are WRs while DeMarco Murray holds onto the end of round 1.
By the end of the 2nd round, 9 WRs have been drafted vs 11 RBs. The times have changed my friends! Only Team 1(McCoy/Ellington) and Team 2(Charles/Bell) paired up RBs. Team 5 (Johnson/Nelson) and Team 7 (Thomas/Brown) paired up WRs. Team 4 (Forte/Rodgers) was the lone RB/QB combo while Team 11(Manning/Jones) was the lone QB/WR mix.
Gronk and Julius Thomas were 2 of the top 5 picks in the 3rd round. Still too early for me with Gronkowski. 5 more teams finsihed their RB pairings and Arian Foster has fallen to the 12th RB overall and Team 3s RB2 with Peterson. Keenan Allen moves into the middle of the 3rd round, up from the 4th round in our CBS ADP Mock Draft. Alfred Morris and Zac Stacy fall from the 2nd round.
Kaepernick was a 4th round pick on CBS, and is not even selected as a starting QB on the FFC. By waiting until the 5th round until they grabbed their RB1, Team 5 will rely heavily on Toby Gerhart. Only Team 11 is still without an RB. Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd will be called upon to be Team 8 and Team 2 WR1. Which Arizona Cardinals WR will be the more valuable player this season?
Team 5 followed Gerhart with Mathews, Team 11 is stuck with Joique Bell as their RB1 and Team 12 paired 1st round pick DeMarco Murray up with Bishop Sankey. Jordan Cameron is just the 4th TE selected over the first 51 selections.
Team 11 followed up Joique Bell with Ray Rice...could be a LONG season even with Peyton as their QB. Brandin Cooks has climbed up ahead of Marques Colston and that is a big no no. Even if Cooks has Darren Sproles best season ever, 86 receptions for 710 yards and 7 TDs, it doesn't match what Colston has done averaged for his career with 83 catches for 1140 yards and 8.6 TDs. Also remember that Cooks is a rookie WR in the NFL where those guys don't fair too well!
The 7th round should feature a ton of QBs and TEs in your drafts. Some people might go ahead and add their 3rd RB at this point, but if you are doing that, it just means you didn't make a good selection earlier in the draft. Terrance Williams and Eric Decker were the only non QB/TE selected. So crazy to think that Frank Gore, Chris Johnson, Steven Jackson and Stevan Ridley will not be rostered on a weekly basis. Actually, Ridley is apparently struggling to stay on the Patriots roster!
