Fantasy Football ADP

"Fantasy Football ADP" rankings are average draft position lists compiled from real online fantasy football drafts. You can use ADP results to give you an idea of what average fantasy football owners are thinking about when they're drafting in 2010, helping to better inform you when you put together your own fantasy football mock draft. In fact, you can take the ADP data and turn this compilation into your own makeshift ff mock draft, so you don't have your own biases and preconceived notions getting in the way of your pre-draft calculations.

What Is ADP?

ADP stands for "average draft position". Whenever an Internet draft takes place, the websites these draft take place on compile and archive the results. They use programs to then take the sum total of all the drafts, and come up with independent statistics for where players are being drafted in this year's draft. These are real drafts (taking place a little early, in my opinion) with real fantasy football owners, so you're getting the closest thing you can have this time of year to a picture of what your drafts are going to look like.

You can take away certain information from this. For instance, if you have the 4th pick in the 3rd round in your local draft, you can look at the list and see that Chris Wells is the player the corresponds to the 3.4 position on the ADP list. If you don't think Beanie Wells is a very good selection at that point, you can browse down the list, to see whom the next six players selected (on average) are: Jonathan Stewart, Vincent Jackson, Knowshon Moreno, Ryan Grant, Michael Crabtree and Steve Smith of the New York Giants. On average, these players should be available, so you can craft your draft strategy by targeting certain of these players you prefer, or players further down the list, as guys you want to select in the 3rd round.

Average Draft Deviations

If your local league is like mine, it's never going to follow the script entirely according to what the average drafter is doing. More than likely, a few of those people listed earlier are going to be off the board, but that means a handful of players who are drafted on average by the 3.4 spot are going to be available. Take a look at the six picks before Chris Wells: Marques Colston, Sidney Rice, Ryan Mathews, Jamaal Charles, Shonn Greene and Greg Jennings. You might plan for one of these players to slide to you at the 3.4 slot, and craft your earlier and later draft picks accordingly.

This isn't an exact science, but what an ADP list does is show you the possibilities. I always find it reassuring, because looking at a mock draft tells you that you are certain to get a player of a certain tier or caliber at that spot.

What Is a Mock Draft?

A mock draft is slightly different than an ADP list, because it's entirely in the realm of fantasy. These are draft projections of what you think your draft is going to look like. If you've played in a league with the same owners for 5 or more years, you likely know what their tendencies are, and what their likes and dislikes are involving certain players. Taking what you know of your opponent's draft tendencies, along with what you know about the prevailing mood of fantasy football owners that year through ADP lists, along with what you've seen from fantasy experts' mock draft, you can build your own mock draft list of what you expect to happen in your league.

Once again, the mock draft lets you get an estimate of what's likely to be there when you pick in the early rounds of the draft. The later you project out a mock draft, the more speculative the mocks become. But a mock draft is a good way to see what's likely to be there for your starting lineup picks, allowing you to set up a full draft strategy. When I sketch out a mock draft focused on overall strategy, I prefer to mock up 6 to 8 rounds. When I sketch out a mock draft focused on what I should do with my 1st and 2nd pick, I mock up about 4 rounds, to see what my early picks are going to look like, once they're compared to what I'm likely to be able to draft in the 3rd and 4th rounds. I've seen friends set up a mock draft for a full draft, but that's simply crazy.

On the other hand, you might do a mock draft with friends who have knowledge of your league, or even fellow league members, to get an idea of what's on their minds. It's tricky and you should take such exercises with a grain of salt, since neither of you are going to want to give away your sleeper picks and draft surprises.

Expert Mock Drafts

Many fantasy football websites and magazines include their own mock drafts, often including a collection of experts or publications who take the role of league owners. These mocks invariably include short comments by the participants, either touting or justifying their respective picks. These are meant to show what high-quality players are selecting, and when they're selecting them.

If you choose to perform your own mock draft, consider logging into an online mock draft tool, where you can test yourself and see how you perform in a draft scenario. If you mock out a likely draft scenario on your own, make sure you evaluate a "worst case scenario", so you have a plan what you'll do if the worst set of player options fall to you at your high round picks.

Fantasy Football ADP 2010

Keeping in mind how you might use the information below, here is data for standard ADP results here in 2010. The statistics for this average draft position list was compiled by the "My Fantasy League" fantasy football league management company, which has maintained websites for fantasy leagues for at least ten years. My Fantasy League is one of the best league sites out there, and one of many resources people who use My Fantasy League get is access to their average draft position database.

Many league who use MFL host their draft on the Internet, especially old leagues where the league members have moved to different parts of the country, or new leagues where the membership have a tenuous connection to one another (aren't old friends). When these online drafts take place, My Fantasy League enters the information into their database, which allows them to analyze the stats and create an ADP list.

I've taken this ADP information and broken the information into 12-player blocks, like individual rounds in a 12-team league. This way, you can easily see which rounds the players on your draft list are likely to be drafted, at least on average. It's still early in the summer, so there are only 114 drafts to go on, but that's more than enough to draw conclusions from.

Keep in mind these average draft positions are for a high performance scoring system, and I didn't include Team Defense or IDP information. We're talking about offensive football players and the occasional field goal kicker on this ADP list. While this isn't the end-all, be-all for where these players are going, it does give a ballpark figure where hundreds of drafts including over a thousand team owners are drafting players.

ADP Draft Notes

There's a list of twenty rounds of ADP picks. Since "Team Defense/Special Teams" wasn't included in this draft profile, there are probably a good 20-24 of these players who won't be drafted in most leagues. If you play in 16 or 18 team leagues, or an 8-team or 10-team league, most of the players after rounds 15-16 aren't going to be drafted. Whatever the case with your local league, a few things did stand out to me.

Rookie Quarterbacks in the ADP

I found it interesting that a handful of rookie quarterbacks went higher according to Average Draft Position than their veteran rivals for the starting position. I can see why Jimmy Clausen went 8 spots ahead of Matt Moore on average, since there has been talk by prominent football broadcasters that they believe Clausen could be the opening day starter in Charlotte. After the last month of 2009, I'm certain Matt Moore would be a trendy sleeper pick, were it not for the specter of Jimmy Clausen hanging over his head. I'm not sure I agree with the logic, since John Fox has a long history of choosing veterans over rookies and young guys (and talent), and John Fox is going into 2010 trying to save his job (I would assume).

What I don't understand is that people are drafting Tim Tebow 3 spots ahead of Kyle Orton, on average. Now, I wouldn't have either one of them on my team, but if you put a gun to my head and told me I had to draft one or the other, I wouldn't hesitate and I would draft Kyle Orton. I know Tim Tebow is supposed to be the second coming, but scouts and experts have been virtually unanimous in saying that Tim Tebow isn't ready and he's going to need a significant amount of work, to even be considered a startable NFL quarterback. That includes those rare prognosticators and scouts who think Tebow has the skills to be a standout QB in the National Football League. Maybe Josh McDaniels is such a believe in attitude beating talent that he gives the kid an early shot, but I'm betting he looks at Tebow as the ultimate project, something worthy of his genius skills as a quarterback guru, so Josh McDaniels is going to work with him a year, before playing Tebow significant playing time.

Running Backs in the ADPs

I was surprised at what the bottom of the 1st round and the top of the 2nd round looked like, with so many wide receivers and quarterbacks going. According to this collective set of 114 mock drafts, the 8th running back is being drafted in the 4th spot of the 2nd round. I have never in my days (maybe pre-1995) seen a draft where the running backs were so little valued at the top of the draft, and I don't believe the mock drafters would make those same evaluations, if they were drafting for real. I could be wrong on that assumption, but I don't think so.

That might make you believe that the entire draft is invalid, but I think it evens out somewhere in the 4th or 5th round. I admit that I might be wrong for 2010 drafts, since this does include over a hundred different drafts that have been held on legitimate website ("My Fantasy League"). If so, this signals a sea change in the ways that fantasy football owners have been drafting in the past 15 years. The glut of lousy players (Steve Slaton, Ladainian Tomlinson, Marion Barber, Marshawn Lynch) at the bottom of the 1st round last year might do that to you, but I'm betting those same owners who lost out last year had been well-served over the years with the same strategy.

Anyway, the running backs thinned out after the 13th round, instead of the 12th round, like I predicted. Once again, I'm thinking my guess is still closer to the truth, and the online mock drafts are slightly off from real world drafting, because people are more likely to draft "fun players" as opposed to "safe players". It's boring to draft the #10 RB on your list, but it's exciting to get the #2 or #3 receiver on your draft list. That's one reason rookies tend to go in that direction.

Wide Receiver Love

I mentioned before how surprised I was about how high wide receivers were going, and how many were going high. The one I'm most surprised about is Calvin Johnson going 8th over on the ADP. Don't get me wrong; I'm a big fan of Megatron and I think he may be the single most gifted receiver, physically, in the NFL. But after the disappointing 2009 Calvin Johnson had, I'm surprised so many people are willing to draft Johnson that high.

Fantasy football tends to be such a "what have you done for me lately" game, that even great talents seldom go up in value after a disappointing year. Calvin Johnson and his young quarterback, Matthew Stafford, both battled through injuries in 2009, which limited the effectiveness of each. It may well be that Megatron in his 4th year and Matt Stafford in his 2nd year are going to hook up for huge numbers. But to put Johnson above fantasy standouts like Miles Austin and Reggie Wayne on much more high profile teams is a little confusing. I guess people are convinced this is Calvin Johnson's year, or else those 100 online drafts all take place in Detroit.

Average Draft Position List - Without Position/Team Listed

I found it a little distracting to look over this ADP list with the team names and positions listed, so in case someone else has the same sensation, I included a clean list with only the names, so you could take the specific name with round & position listed. Until I got into about the 16th round, I didn't need reminders on who was whom, though I have to admit that all those new Patriots receivers and tight ends at the bottom of the list are going to take a little while. Luckily, it's still June.

Fantasy Football Average Draft Position

For those who want to analyze average draft position rankings and mark them up, I suggest you copy and paste one of the two lists above: the one with the team and position information, or our "clean" adp list. Remember that it's still early in the summer, so you might want to wait another 6 weeks or so, before printing off a list. That way, you can study what football fans are thinking the draft orders should be, once training camp news and preseason results start to come in. Consider printing off one of these lists and having it with you at your fantasy football draft, so you don't end up being the dunce who drafts your favorite player 3 rounds higher than you should. Good luck drafting.
