Fantasy Football - Precision Drafting

Fantasy Football "Perfect Draft"

We recently published a blog post over at, breaking down the 2016 fantasy football season. We focused on the Zero RB draft strategy, and if it failed fantasy owners this year. However, it also sprouted a new topic of discussion - which players did we draft with the most precision.

In order to figure that out, we took the ADP from the "Perfect Draft" and compared it to actual ADP results.  Any of the 84 players that were selected within 10 draft slots were considered for this post.

Andrew Luck3848
Julio Jones412
Aaron Rodgers2028
Odell Beckham 28
Mark Ingram1923
Antonio Brown13
Devonta Freeman1515
Carlos Hyde3737
Jarvis Landry4646
Doug Baldwin4139
Jeremy Hill5149
David Johnson51
Ezekiel Elliott72
Le'Veon Bell114
Duke Johnson9184
Jordy Nelson179

A part of me wonders just how good Jeremy Hill could be if he were the lone back for the Bengals. Even before Giovani Bernard suffered a season ending ACL injury, Hill lead Cincinnati in RB points in 4 of the first eight weeks.  Even if you only gave Hill 250 of Bernard's 330 rushing yards, he would have already eclipsed 1,000 rushing yards to go along with his 8 rushing TDs.

Despite scoring just one touchdown this year, Duke Johnson's 64 receptions have made him a FLEX option in PPR leagues.  He is averaging 5 yards per carry, but on just his 61 attempts.
