Post-Draft Superflex Rookie ADP Report

Ryan McDowell

The NFL Draft, the landing spots and draft capital that was revealed on a three-day period in late April, has had a major impact on the value of each incoming rookie. While this is always the case, the 2018 class seems to be even more affected than others. That is especially true in superflex leagues considering the five first-round quarterbacks shaking up the landscape of each league.

Let’s get to what you came for, the latest superflex rookie ADP data. Along with the current ADP, I’ve also included the pre-draft ADP for each player.

Even in the 2QB format, new Giants running back Saquon Barkley remains king, being selected with the top pick in each of our drafts. The top overall NFL Draft pick Baker Mayfield has assumed the QB1 rank for many and he’s also the top signal caller drafted here.

As expected, the run on both running backs and quarterbacks continues through the round with only one receiver being drafted. There is surprisingly very little movement among the top 12 players, though Royce Freeman, the presumed Broncos starting running back, moves up and cracks the first-round.

The second round sees a couple of tiers end, along with a major run on the wide receiver position. First, we see the end of a running back tier with Kerryon Johnson coming off the board early in the round. Landing in a favorable, yet crowded Lions backfield, Johnson is in a position to gain value quickly.

Also, it seems that the quarterback tier ends with the selection of the fifth quarterback who was selected on day one of the NFL Draft, Josh Allen. Surprisingly though, Allen is actually closer in value, based on this ADP, to the Steelers rookie quarterback Mason Rudolph. We see a gap of 8.71 between the two, while the gap from QB4, Lamar Jackson, and Allen is nine.

The second round also gives us the top overall riser following the NFL Draft, 49ers receiver Dante Pettis, whose value has skyrocketed following his second round NFL Draft capital. Pettis’ ADP is up over 18 spots, locking him in as a second-rounder in this format, as well as typical one quarterback drafts.

The third round is a mixture of everything, with all four positions represented, along with some fast risers and fallers. Colts running back Nyheim Hines and Saints receiver Tre’Quan Smith both climbed nearly a full round, pushing them to the top portion of this group.

A pair of players who fell further than expected were Ravens tight end Mark Andrews and Todd Gurley’s new backup, John Kelly. Both are now barely hanging onto their third-round ADP. After only one tight end, Mike Gesicki, cracked the top 24 overall players, the next three come off the board in this round- all with questionable landing spots.

Finally, the receiver run from the previous round continues with six more being drafted after seven were selected in the second round.
