In the previous two editions of Flash Forward, I detailed the community’s thoughts on some of the top players in the game and the expectation for their value over the next year. Through posing questions asking which players were locks to be 2016 first round picks and which players were sleepers to be first round picks (link to 2nd article), we gained a great deal of insight about which players are expected to retain or even gain value over the next several months.
Today, we’ll take a look in the opposite direction as I asked this question via Twitter:

The scope of this question is obviously limited to the 12 players listed – the current top 12 based on the cumulative dynasty ADP of all 36 DLF dynasty mock drafts from January through June. Even with limited options, much can be taken from the responses and the takeaway is clear even before you see the results. You don’t want to see the cornerstones of your team near the top of this list, as the respondents expect those players to lose value over the course of the next several months.
Again, I asked for just one player per response and 72 people answered the call. Here are the results, including the percentage of total answers each player received.
