Yahoo Fantasy Basketball ADP Mock DraftAverage Draft Position is important to remember when you enter your fantasy basketball drafts this month.  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.

*I made slight adjustments to the order so that each team filled in all its starters (PG, SG, G, SG, SF, PF, F, C, UTIL, UTIL) before adding bench players.

ESPN ADP Mock Draft


Round 1

You will rarely see less than 10 of these guys go in the 1st round of all the drafts you take part in this October.  A Clippers fan might reach and take Blake Griffin, or a Cavs fan might snatch Kyrie Irving towards the end of the 1st, but other than that, this is the 1st round.

Round 2

Team 3 paired Davis with Noah, the only team to go with back to back bigs.  Team 4 (Curry/Dragic) was the lone PG/PG combo.  Just Team 4 and Team 5 (Paul/Leonard) finished the 2nd round without an eligible Power Forward or Center.  5 of the 12 teams paired a PG with a PF/C, while 4 teams went SF/PF with their picks.  Team 10 paired up Blazers Aldridge and Lillard.

Round 3

Team 1 (Durant/Bosh/Horford) and Team 3 (Davis/Noah/Batum) are the only teams without an eligible PG after 3 rounds.  Team 2 (Lopez/Rose), Team 5 (Paul/Williams), and Team 10 (Lillard/Rondo) drafted 2 players with single position eligibility with their first 3 picks.

Round 4

Team 2 (Rose/Rubio/Lopez), Team 5 (Paul/Williams/Gasol) and Team 10 (Lillard/Rondo/Jordan) have limited their roster flexibility with 3 of their first 4 picks.  The last pick of the 4th round seems a bit too soon for me to take a chance on Nerlens Noel.  I'd rather have Pau Gasol, David Lee, David West, Derrick Favors or any of the PF/C that were selected in the 5th or 6th round.

Rounds 5 & 6

Team 1 finally drafted their first PG, Monta Ellis and followed that up in the 6th round with Michael Carter-Williams (also paired teammates Noel/MCW).  Continuing to create a jam at the guard position, Team 2 added its 3rd PG only player in IT2.  Team 3 also paired up teammates in Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis.  Team 5 drafted the 1st rookie in the 5th with Jabari Parker.  Team 10 added Wes Matthews to his teammate in Portland (Aldridge/Lillard).  Andrew Wiggins is the 2nd rookie to be drafted to Team 11.  Round 6 featured Gasol, Faried, Lee, West, Favors, Gortat and Smith, so if you need a good PF/C you know you can hold off until the 5th/6th rounds.

Rounds 7 & 8

These 2 rounds feature some quality veterans at all positions, who can provide help in specific categories.  Pekovic and Randolph are double-double machines, Martin, Korver and Green can knock down the 3 ball, and Lopez, Sanders and Hibbert can help with blocks.  Elfrid Payton, probably the biggest question mark to all casual NBA fans coming out of the NBA draft, ends up being the 3rd rookie selected, at the end of the 8th round.

Rounds 9 & 10

Some nice sleeper picks can be found in the 9th in players like Jonas Valanciunas, Tobias Harris, Brandon Knight and Patrick Beverley.  The 10th round features some players in new uniforms like Channing Frye, Jeremy Lin, Ray Felton and Carlos Boozer.

Rounds 11 & 12

Make sure you take the best player available when filling in your bench, as well as finding that one player who can boost a specific category that you find you will be weak in.  Need some scoring? Grab J.R. Smith.  Need some rebounds? Terrence Jones was pulling down nearly 7 a night in just 27 minutes.
