I’ve got an ADP post coming up that compares three of my favorite sources for ADP, but while I’m working on that I thought I would give you the average ADP for all three.  They are Fantasy Football Calculator, ESPN and Mock Draft Central (must sign up, but free).  I won’t analyze these.  They are what they are.  But I do think they are a fairly good representation of ADP at this point in time.

  1. AL KOHOLIC says:

    kind of surprised charles is at 26,seems a bit low but jones is scaring people

  2. Cheese

    Cheese says:

    Just curious of your opinion on Tebow is. Would you draft him in a keeper league where you keep players up to a max of 3 years? I could probably draft him for the minimum of $20 ($620 cap)

  3. Cheese

    Cheese says:

    @Cheese: He wouldn’t be my starting QB, he’ll be a project.

  4. Doc

    Doc says:

    @AL KOHOLIC: He’s going even later than that in some. People are very worried about TJ. I’m not.

    @Cheese: That 3 year max is tough. Even if he starts next season I don’t really see him being a fantasy QB until the third season. i drafted him in my Dynasty league, but we can keep them as long as we want. He’s worth a shot, but I wouldn’t overpay.

  5. al koholic says:

    ok slaton at 106,now thats a gamble id take

  6. al koholic says:

    bye the way,your site here is really getting the fever going,great job doc,thanks

  7. Doc

    Doc says:

    @al koholic: Gotta worry about Tate since they drafted him so early. If Slaton is 100% healthy he could be very good in ppr even with Tate starting.

    I hear yah man. I’ve got the fantasy football meter pegged.

  8. robert says:

    I am new to fantasy football. I am being offered Reggie Wayne, LeSean McCoy, C.J. Spiller for my Ray Rice & Donald Driver. My other RB is Pierre Thomas. My other WR is Roddy White. Good deal for me or bad? Thanks.

  9. Doc

    Doc says:

    @robert: I don’t like that you’d be left with Thomas and McCoy. Rice is too valuable to your team. If he really is interested in Driver I would try to trade him to him without Rice.

  10. robert says:


  11. Daniel says:

    @Doc: Doc, I’m curious as to what your opinion is on drafting WRs earlier in drafts as opposed to RBs. Over the years, I’ve drafted with the strategy of almost always kicking off my draft RB-RB with my first 2 picks. After reviewing several ADPs and participating in several mocks, it seems like dependable WRs are flying off the board incredibly fast (especially when you have to start 3 of them each week).

    Do you feel that it’s better to secure as many top-tier WRs, such as Fitzgerald, Wayne, Austin, or Marshall, in rounds 2-3 and then target a player such as Ronnie Brown as your #2 back in round 4 or 5? Or would you rather lock down your thoroughbred backs early and hope that the Bowe’s and Maclin’s of the world pan out?

  12. Pepe Silvia says:

    Ryan Matthews is #9 at Yahoo! Actually, I guess that sentence needs two exclamation marks, one for Yahoo!’s name, and the other because…they’ve got Ryan Matthews at freaking #9!!!

  13. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Daniel: In non-ppr I still lean to the stud backs, but am open to WRs if the value is there. If I get one of the top 4 RBs I am more likely to go WR with my 2nd pick because of the solid base at RB. If I grab a RB near the end of the round I’m likely to want his running mate to be in a similar tier.

    WRs are flying off the board and when you have 3 slots to fill I want to get 2 guys I like. But I am high on some guys that can be had later like Nicks, Crabtree, Smith (car), and even Ward.

    In ppr I am more likely to grab a WR if I miss the top 4 RBs.

    It really does depend on how your draft is going, but don’t be set on going RB/RB, especially if a guy you like falls to you in the 2nd round.

  14. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Pepe Silvia: Yahoo’s ADP takes into account a lot of autodrafting. I stay away from it.

  15. Giacomo says:

    I know Spiller has upside, but I bet Jackson is the starter in Buffalo. Seems ridiculous to the 2nd string guy before the 1st. I know Buffalo is no great shakes on offense, but I think Gailey will at least have some imagination about trying to put some points on the board. Jauron really stifled the offense for the past several years.

  16. Eric H. says:

    @Doc (or anyone else that would like to chime in): I have the #7 overall pick in a 12-team PPR league. What would be a good strategy? Would Rashard Mendenhall-Jamaal Charles be OK?

  17. Awesome. Thanks man.

  18. hacienda says:

    Thanks, this is really useful!

    Where do you go for the best projections? I know they’re all guesses, but is there anybody you particularly trust?

  19. Pepe Silvia says:

    Here is where you go for the best projections.

  20. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Giacomo: Agreed. Jackson should remain the starter and should be going ahead of Spiller.

    @hacienda: I agree with Pepe.

  21. herschel says:

    @Doc: keeper question. donald brown for a 7th round pick or ricky williams for a 12th round pick? thanks.

  22. Doc

    Doc says:

    @herschel: Have to go with Brown. More long term value.

  23. herschel says:

    @Doc: does it matter if its a one year keeper league?

  24. Doc

    Doc says:

    @herschel: ah, yeah. Would he be a starter or backup? Guessing starter since he’s a keeper. I like Brown in the second half of the season, but I could see Ricky being worth more early on.

  25. herschel says:

    @Doc: both would probably start at flex. ppr league, we start 2 rbs plus a flex and are only allowed to keep players drafted after the 5th round.

  26. Doc

    Doc says:

    @herschel: I like Brown’s upside more.

  27. TheEvilEmpire says:

    Missing #30 on that list Doc. There supposed to be someone there or just skipped the number?

  28. Doc says:

    Thanks. Yeah that’s just a missing number. The names will remain the same. I’ll fix it.
