Dynasty Fantasy Football ADP: Post-Draft Risers and Fallers

Tim Riordan

The 2024 NFL Draft is completed and now the dynasty fantasy football fallout has begun. The rookie values have, of course, been drastically changing, but what about the veterans? While this time of year is certainly an exciting one for dynasty managers, it can also be terrifying. You can go to sleep one night with a bell-cow running back, and wake up the next day with a high-end handcuff.

Now that the market has had a few weeks to adjust, Ryan McDowell has updated his dynasty ADP. Using his latest May DLF Dynasty startup ADP, here are the veteran players who were most affected by the NFL Draft, along with their dynasty fantasy football outlook. The indicated change in ADP is the rise or fall from April to May.


Ezekiel Elliott, RB DAL (+65.3 spots) and Rico Dowdle, RB DAL (+24.5 spots)

The Cowboys surprised everyone by skipping on the running back position in the NFL Draft. Jerry Jones told the media that he was targeting Jonathon Brooks, but after they missed out on Brooks, it appears they decided to punt the position and go with the veteran route instead, bringing back their old buddy Elliott. Elliott skyrockets up the ADP rankings because he went from being a free agent to a potential bell-cow back in the span of one signature.

He looked decent at times last year in New England, but still had career lows in carries (184), yards (642), touchdowns (three) and yards per carry (3.5). Elliott is a fine player for a win-now team to go out and target for this season only - he’s only valued as the 53rd running back in these drafts. Dowdle, meanwhile, is the younger option and may have enough juice to pull some important carries away from Elliott. This may turn into an ugly, unproductive committee in Dallas.

Adam Thielen, WR CAR (+29.3 spots)
