With the off-season quickly coming to a close, I thought it would be a good time to look at some data collected by the DLF team over the past few weeks. I’m sure you’re aware that I collect monthly dynasty startup ADP, while Scott Fish mans the rookie ADP. As the final wave of dynasty drafts kick off, I polled the DLF team in an effort to bring you our collective thoughts on the best and worst picks you could potentially make in the early portion of your startup and rookie drafts.
This is the first in a 12-part series that will answer some simple questions, namely “who is the biggest risk?” and “who is the best value?” These are the types of questions dynasty owners ask themselves every time they are on the clock, so hopefully you’ll use this as a guide for the first three rounds of your upcoming drafts.
After addressing risky players in the first edition, this time we analyzed the players considered value picks. For reference, I’ll be using our latest August ADP data, which looks like this:
This time, we had 28 DLF writers participate, giving us a good look at players providing some value, even at this early portion of the draft. Let’s begin with the players receiving no votes, meaning they do not provide much value at their respective draft positions.
