Back in early February, we look at early Yahoo draft results and created a four round 12 team mock draft based on the top 50 players drafted.  Since then, things have changed and one player has even dropped out of the top 50 - can you guess who?

We posted an update to our original post on Reddit almost three weeks ago - you can read that here.

No player has seen a greater increase in ADP since early February than Chris Davis.  He has climbed ten spots from 46th overall to 36th, including four more spots in the last three weeks.  He ranks even higher in NFBC drafts, so if you want to add him in your drafts, you need to be positioned at the end of the second round, early in the third, otherwise you will have to "reach" for him with a mid second round pick.  Maybe that's what happening and the reason for the rise in ADP.

J.D. Martinez and Jacob deGrom are the only other players in the top 50 that have climbed five spots, with Martinez moving into the top 30.

However, Martinez is the complete opposite of Davis.  Davis Yahoo ADP is the lowest across all sites while Martinez Yahoo ADP is the highest across NFBC, ESPN and CBS.

Felix Hernandez has dropped eight spots since our February post, and is now taken 44th overall.  I would be more than willing to draft King Felix nearly a round later than those drafts that took place over a month ago.  As the 12th pitcher selected in Yahoo drafts, I would be more than happy to be the last owner to draft my first SP.

For some reason, Prince Fielder has also seen a slight dip in ADP, and the only other player to have fallen five spots.  I mean, all he did was hit .305 with 28 2Bs, 23 HRs and drive in 98 runs last year.
