In a league that requires you to start three WRs every week, you need to hammer the WR position early. Your goal should be to overwhelm your competition at WR – ideally your WR4 will be better than everyone’s WR3 and maybe even some people’s WR2.

Injury rates are high at RB, and we see under-regarded RBs fall into high-leverage roles every season. It’s much rarer for an underrated wide receiver to become a star. You are better off investing more provisional capital in a low volatility position than in a high volatility position.

It’s OK to switch to QB or TE, but not both positions. The RB and WR positions are essential, and if you pay for luxury brands at both QB and TE, you are bound to be weak at RB or WR.

Ben Phillips de La Salle gives Fil’s foreign student-athletes 10 tips for navigating life in the Philippines

MANILA, Philippines — When I first left Ninoy Aquino International Airport, the only thing I knew for sure was how nervous I was halfway around the world and away from home in Cincinnati , Ohio. I wanted to create a short guide that would serve as an initial roadmap for Fil-Ams and Fil-Strangers so that you don’t feel lost and alone in figuring out this new chapter in your life.

My name is Benjamin Phillips III, an MBA student-athlete at De La Salle University, and here are my 10 survival tips:

Before leaving

There are so many things you can do while you’re still at home to prepare for your trip abroad, but these three topics are essential and will help you in the long run.

1. Start learning the language if you still haven’t. Find a personal Tagalog tutor or use a language app (Drops/Rosetta Stone) for beginners. Start listening to OPM (Original Pilipino Music) and read the lyrics to familiarize yourself. Apo Hiking Society is a MUST. Watch Filipino movies and series on Netflix with subtitles as I learned most of my conversational Tagalog from Four sisters and a wedding.

2. Research local UAAP and NCAA schools, their course offerings, culture, history and alumni. Each school shares different aspects of this beautiful country and choosing the right school, or learning more about the school you have chosen, will make you feel more connected to your new home.

3. Get a sturdy pair of sandals (trust me as they will take you far) as they are essential with travel, beaches, floods etc. There will be so much to do when you arrive in the homeland and trying new things is extremely important! New restaurants, museums, (making Tambay in local hangouts), and daily walks are the sandals’ favorite pastime.

is coming now

Yes, the jet lag you experience is real once your adrenaline wears off. Get ready for lots of stares, photos and the nicest people in the world. Welcome to the Philippines, Mabuhay!

4. Be prepared for the weather change. Whether you’re from the Midwest like me, or even the west coast of California, the air and heat are different here. (Sobrang mainit!) Bottled water is a must in the beginning to adjust and stay hydrated.

5. Find local snacks that you love and that remind you of home. Convenience stores and supermarkets have everything you are looking for here. I never leave a 7/11 without Haribo Gummy Bears which I would always eat in the US. Don’t be afraid to try new things either! (I fell in love with Strawberry Hello Pandas and Yan-Yans.)

6. Get a Filipino phone or a Filipino SIM card. This is your Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory golden ticket here in the Philippines. A Filipino phone/Philippine SIM card will help you with local transportation (Grab and Angkas), food delivery (Food Panda), shopping (Mall-Wi-Fi and Shopee) and easier communication with locals and your teams (Viber). Make sure this is a high priority on your to-do list.

Settle

Congratulations! You have gone through your first few weeks and are beginning to orient yourself. Now is where your discipline must come into play.

seven. Go to class! Fil-Ams and Fil-Foreigners have a reputation for not encompassing student aspect of a student-athlete. A degree from the Philippines will only benefit your future and open more doors for you than you think, whether it’s an undergraduate course, a master’s degree, or if you want to join me in completing my doctorate here in the Philippines. Connecting with your fellow students and faculty is one of the essentials of coming here. You are not only here for your sport; you are here to represent your school at the highest level and honor your scholarship that many people wish they had. Remember, you’re not here to party and be a fixture on the club scene, especially not in your rookie year when you haven’t won anything yet. Have fun in moderation, but remember that you have a job to do and every decision you make affects your personal brand as well.

8. Make a budget. I talk about it a lot in my own post, Lone Wolf Mentality: A Millennial Mindset, but students and young adults everywhere need a budget they can stick to and follow strictly, especially in a new environment. Even though the cost of living may seem cheaper here than at home, that doesn’t mean you can go crazy and splurge every day. You need to create a list of all your expenses (and yes, that means Starbucks and Jollibee daily trips) to accurately manage your new found financial independence. For the most part, you will be on your own, so knowing exactly where every dollar/peso of your student allowance or other income goes will be imperative to your survival, not just in the Philippines, but throughout your life.

Golden Rule

ten. Treat others as you would like to be treated. It’s an old adage, but one that will last for millennia in all countries. Be humble, smile and share kindness with everyone you meet. You never know whose life you will impact with the platform you are blessed with here. Nothing is impossible! Stay true to your values ​​and beliefs and don’t stray from the good principles you were taught and grew up with. Don’t focus on what someone else has, whether it’s their recommendations or their opportunities, but keep putting your head down and keep working. Your time will come. I came here as an unrecruited and flew so low under the reconnaissance radar that the Dragon Radar of Dragon Ball Z I couldn’t even find my trail, but I continued to work hard every day with a chip on my shoulder that I would do my best to make it out here. I treat every person I meet here as someone I could learn from and gather wisdom from, and it has been the best thing that has ever happened to me in this beautiful country of the Philippines. – Rappler.com

Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: 2022 Customizable Ratings & Projections – Cups & Signings Update https://bayd.info/fantasy-football-cheat-sheet-2022-customizable-ratings-projections-cups-signings-update/ Fri, 02 Sep 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://bayd.info/fantasy-football-cheat-sheet-2022-customizable-ratings-projections-cups-signings-update/ What you’ll find below is exactly what it sounds like in the title: a fully customizable cheat sheet that lets you enter your league’s rules and settings – and even edit stats and projections – and end up with a set of ratings and projections unique to your personal fantasy football needs.

What you’ll find below is exactly what it sounds like in the title: a fully customizable cheat sheet that lets you enter your league’s rules and settings – and even edit stats and projections – and end up with a set of ratings and projections unique to your personal fantasy football needs.

All I ask is that you read the instructions.

It’s a pretty deep (but ultimately very amazing) tool with a lot of interconnected parts. But once you learn it, it’s surprisingly easy (and fun – you can run Geno Smith for 700 meters if you want). And if you’re wrong, I’ll be there in the comments to help you out. Have fun… and good luck!!


If you want the condensed version, it’s this one: Go to individual team pages to make changes to player stats/projections, scroll right on these pages to make sure you don’t miss anything (input fields go all the way to the AH column), only change stuff in yellow, and trust that the tool is still doing its job in the background as you make changes. I also added an instruction page in the sheet to help you keep everything in one place. But here is the longer version of the primer:

Pre-Instruction Note: If you don’t have Excel, here’s a link to Office 365, which you can access for free (you may need to create an account).

UPDATES?: Yes! This fantasy football cheat sheet will be frequently updated to reflect all major news and injuries. Whenever there is a leaderboard update, we will also update this tool). And please read everything, including the intro, because if you ask a question that you’ve already answered, you might fall victim to Mutombo.

UPDATED September 2

TOO: The only rating categories I project are the included ones. So, apologies, but if you have bonuses or additional categories like first tries, there’s no way to count them.


1. Go to each team’s tabs to make changes

In other words, if you want to edit Jameis Winston’s fantasy points, you need to go to the New Orleans tab and edit it. You cannot simply enter a new fantasy point total in the Leaderboards tab. It will mess things up down the line.

2. Keep Scrolling Right for the Good Stuff

A fair amount of yellow cells are to the right of the team pages, and you might not see them unless you scroll to the right. Once you are there, you are going to have fun.

The way this sheet works, you can’t edit Devin Singletary’s yards or rush attempts directly in the cells – everything is connected to everything else in order to make the sorting and ranking work. Instead, if you want to change Singletary’s rushing yards, you’ll need to change a few things:

  1. COLUMN V “YD PER CARRY” – if you think Singletary will have a better (or worse) YPC
  2. COLUMN X “TD PER CARRY” – if you think he will score at a higher (or lower) clip
  3. COLUMN Z “YD PER RECP” – if you want to change his receiving prowess
  4. COLUMN AF “EDIT RUSH SHARE” – to give it more ranges in the background. PLEASE NOTE: When you increase Singletary by 7%, you will need to decrease other people by 7%. Otherwise you will cause “TOT SHR” (total share) to go over 100% (I turned it red so you know) and things won’t be calculated correctly. More on that below.
  5. COLUMN AG and AH to change target share and TD share. That should make enough sense at this point to move on, right? we basically modify the numbers in the yellow cells, and these then feed into and create/modify the player’s projections.

3. Meet “TOT SHR” in the AF column – he will be your worst enemy if you do not set some things correctly

Check the red “TOT SHR” box in the AF column (bottom right of the page). You want this number to be less than 100 and not red. In the screenshot above you can see how the W column hasn’t adapted to the new numbers in AF. Once we bring the AF back below 100%, the W column adjusts accordingly, and all is well with the world (see screenshot below). Basically, you can’t have more than 100% of a team’s rushes (or receptions, or whatever stats you play with). That’s all it does.

4. Adjusting pass and rush percentage

Rows 30 and 31 are great fun. Changing these numbers will shift the position projections accordingly. Just be aware that if you think the Cardinals will pass 65% of the time, this will automatically lower the peak percentage to 35%. And your RBs (and Kyler Murray’s rushing yards) will drop accordingly.

5. Row tabs

  • POS ranks: automatic sorting with all changes made for the new FPS
  • OVR and VORP ranks: automatically sorts by Value vs. Substitute Playerand changes from positional (orange) to Globally (blue) to WR and TE combined (yellow) for all rating types
  • Ranks w Proj: automatically sorts all changes to the new FPS, but also displays projections for each player
  • Jake’s Ranks: These are MY RANKINGS, which differ some of the projection based rankings (I might be willing to bet on a player missing the first few weeks on a less produced player per game). Auction values ​​readjust for my ranks

Projection Defaults and Notes

  • Pass TD = 4pt
  • All other TDs = 6pt
  • 25 passing yards = 1pt
  • 10 meters rushing/receiving = 1pt
  • Default Sort = Half PPR
  • League/Budget = 12 teams/$200

Fantasy Football Redraft Draft Kit

Joe Pisapia’s overall fantasy football strategy for 2022

I invest early and often in wide receivers. Yes, elite RBs are great, but the last few years have beaten us over the head with the fact that the early RB approach has much greater volatility. I prefer to take hits from RBs on good attacks, opportunities and advantages, but use my first draft capital on proven elite WRs.

At TE, I want value. If Kyle Pitts or Darren Waller slips up, I’m listening. If Dalton Schultz is where he should be, he’s mine. I totally agree with Josh Allen when it comes to individual QB leagues. Otherwise, I’m expecting Matthew Stafford’s value or the Derek Carr/Trey Lance combo meal of floor and rise.

OWelcome to Marca 2022 Fantasy Football Guide and Cheat Sheet. Get the edge on the competition with our detailed analysis and rankings for this year NFL Fantasy Draft. Whether you play Standard notation, RPP Where .5 RPP, We have what you need. We’ll also dive into this year’s best Sleepers and take a look at the rookies with the highest projections for this season. Also be sure to check out our Fantastic Busts 2022 (Don’t Write List) and avoid disappointments down the road.

FANTASY PREPARATION 2022:STANDARD RATING | RPP RATING | 1/2 PPR RATING | SLEEPERS | RECRUITE RANKING | BUSTS PROJECT | GOODBYE WEEKS

Don’t forget to set your league draft date before week 1 Thursday night football game, when Invoices face the Rams September 8 at 8:20 p.m. (EST).

Fantasy Football Terms / Glossary:

ADP: Average draft position. Along with data from other Fantasy Football drafts, the individual picks are compiled together to generate an average draft position for each player.

screw up: A popular player who is highly favored by most and who will underperform his ADP (average draft position) in 2022.

To burst: A player who will rise with the best numbers of his career in 2022, or almost, and will have a big impact.

farewell week: In the NFL, each team must have a week towards the middle of the season when they do not play a game. This week is called the week off.

RPP: Points per reception. In this popular fantasy format, catches count as one point (equivalent to 10 yards in standard scoring formats). For example: in this format, if a receiver catches 6 passes for minimal yardage, they will still have a good performance.

.5 RPP: Similar to PPR, but catches will count as a half point, as opposed to a full point.

Standard notation: Fantasy Football format where receptions do not add any points. Therefore, heavy RBs become more relevant and better positioned in the rankings.

Sleeper: An NFL player who is underdog and who will surpass his average draft position (ADP) in 2022.

Fantasy Football Categories and Positions

QC: quarterbacks. The count of your offence. Quarterbacks tend to be picked in later rounds because the pool of quality players in that position is quite high.

RB: Running backs: The player who will throw the ball the most in your team. They are very important in standard notation formats.

WR: Wide Receivers: The deepest category in the game. Most teams will field three wide receivers at a time. They will be your smugglers.

AND: Tight ends. A blocker/pass catcher hybrid. Usually very dependent on hit for relevance. The shallowest position pool in the game. Be sure to write a star in this category for consistency.

J/ST: Defense and Special Teams. The only non-individual category. Whichever team you choose, you will earn points based on your defensive performance (points allowed, interceptions, fumble recoveries and sacks)

Fantasy Football FAQs

What are the most common types of fantasy football leagues?

Head-to-head leagues: This format is the most common and what we recommend the most at Marca. You’ll face off against an opponent, and the winner is the team with the most points at the end of that week’s matches. The teams with the best overall record will qualify for the playoffs at the end of the season.

Total league points: It’s your team against the others. Teams accumulate points and compete in the standings. The total points of each team determine the ranking.

All Play League: Rare format, but it exists. Each team plays each on a weekly basis. In a 12-team league, the team with the highest score would be 12-0, while the second would be 11-1, and so on…

What is a Superflex in Fantasy Football?

Quarterbacks are the deepest position in fantasy football, as there are so many to choose from and most leagues only offer the chance to have one as a starter. This is why some prefer to play in two QB or superflex leagues. In superflex formats, owners will start two QBs each week.

What happens if my player is injured in Fantasy Football?

Some leagues give teams the ability to place injured players on an IR (injured reserve), which allows the team with the injured player to keep that player and free up a roster spot to add someone in. healthy. In leagues that don’t offer this option, you may need to release the board in free agency.

What are waivers?

Waivers in fantasy football are a claim. The Waiver Wire is a pool of free agents available to add to your team. You use a waiver to claim a player from the free agent pool. Whenever waivers are processed (usually at the start of a respective week), that player is added to your squad. In some leagues, the team ranked last has the number one waiver for the next week.

Once my Draft is finished, what should I do?

The draft only happens once, and that’s before the start of the season. It will now be up to you to define your queues each week. Being a good fantasy football coach requires making tough decisions about who to start and who to leave on the bench.

How do you score in Fantasy Football?

Scoring systems vary from league to league. A suggestion to follow in the standard notation formats would be:

  • 6 points per TD pass
  • 6 points per rush or TD reception
  • 6 points for player returning kick/punt for TD (awarded to D/ST)
  • 6 points for player returning or recovering a fumble for TD (awarded to D/ST)
  • 2 points per 2 point conversion (pass, run and receive)

What you’ll find below is exactly what it sounds like in the title: a fully customizable cheat sheet that lets you enter your league’s rules and settings – and even edit stats and projections – and end up with a set of ratings and projections unique to your personal fantasy football needs.

All I ask is that you read the instructions.

It’s a pretty deep (but ultimately very amazing) tool with a lot of interconnected parts. But once you learn it, it’s surprisingly easy (and fun – you can run Geno Smith for 700 meters if you want). And if you’re wrong, I’ll be there in the comments to help you out. Have fun… and good luck!!


If you want the condensed version, it’s this one: Go to individual team pages to make changes to player stats/projections, scroll right on these pages to make sure you don’t miss anything (input fields go all the way to the AH column), only change stuff in yellow, and trust that the tool is still doing its job in the background as you make changes. I also added an instruction page in the sheet to help you keep everything in one place. But here is the longer version of the primer:

Pre-Instruction Note: If you don’t have Excel, here’s a link to Office 365, which you can access for free (you may need to create an account).

UPDATES?: Yes! This fantasy football cheat sheet will be frequently updated to reflect all major news and injuries. Whenever there is a leaderboard update, we will also update this tool). And please read everything, including the intro, because if you ask a question that you’ve already answered, you might fall victim to Mutombo.

UPDATED August 28

TOO: The only rating categories I project are the included ones. So, apologies, but if you have bonuses or additional categories like first tries, there’s no way to count them.

REMARK: I don’t foresee any missed time due to injuries, but I do for suspensions and currently Alvin Kamara is missing six games and Deshaun Watson eight games.


1. Go to each team’s tabs to make changes

In other words, if you want to edit Jameis Winston’s fantasy points, you need to go to the New Orleans tab and edit it. You cannot simply enter a new fantasy point total in the Leaderboards tab. It will mess things up down the line.

2. Keep Scrolling Right for the Good Stuff

A fair amount of yellow cells are to the right of the team pages, and you might not see them unless you scroll to the right. Once you are there, you are going to have fun.

The way this sheet works, you can’t edit Devin Singletary’s yards or rushing attempts directly in the cells – it’s all connected to everything else so sorting and rankings work. Instead, if you want to change Singletary’s rushing yards, you’ll need to change a few things:

  1. COLUMN V “YD PER CARRY” – if you think Singletary will have a better (or worse) YPC
  2. COLUMN X “TD PER CARRY” – if you think he will score at a higher (or lower) clip
  3. COLUMN Z “YD PER RECP” – if you want to change his receiving prowess
  4. COLUMN AF “EDIT RUSH SHARE” – to give it more ranges in the background. PLEASE NOTE: When you increase Singletary by 7%, you will need to decrease other people by 7%. Otherwise you will cause “TOT SHR” (total share) to go over 100% (I turned it red so you know) and things won’t be calculated correctly. More on that below.
  5. COLUMN AG and AH to change target share and TD share. That should make enough sense at this point to move on, right? we basically modify the numbers in the yellow cells, and these then feed into and create/modify the player’s projections.

3. Meet “TOT SHR” in the AF column – he will be your worst enemy if you do not set some things correctly

Check the red “TOT SHR” box in the AF column (bottom right of the page). You want this number to be less than 100 and not red. In the screenshot above you can see how the W column hasn’t adapted to the new numbers in AF. Once we bring the AF back below 100%, the W column adjusts accordingly, and all is well with the world (see screenshot below). Basically, you can’t have more than 100% of a team’s rushes (or receptions, or whatever stats you play with). That’s all it does.

4. Adjusting pass and rush percentage

Rows 30 and 31 are great fun. Adjusting these numbers will move the position projections accordingly. Just be aware that if you think the Cardinals will pass 65% of the time, this will automatically lower the peak percentage to 35%. And your RBs (and Kyler Murray’s rushing yards) will drop accordingly.

5. Row tabs

  • POS ranks: automatic sorting with all changes made for the new FPS
  • OVR and VORP ranks: automatically sorts by Value vs. Substitute Playerand changes from positional (orange) to Globally (blue) to WR and TE combined (yellow) for all rating types
  • Ranks w Proj: automatically sorts all changes to the new FPS, but also displays projections for each player
  • Jake’s Ranks: These are MY RANKINGS, which differ some of the projection based rankings (I might be willing to bet on a player missing the first few weeks vs a less produced player per game). Auction values ​​readjust for my ranks

Projection Defaults and Notes

  • Pass TD = 4pt
  • All other TDs = 6pt
  • 25 passing yards = 1pt
  • 10 meters rushing/receiving = 1pt
  • Default Sort = Half PPR
  • League/Budget = 12 teams/$200

Ranking the top 300 players in Fantasy Football 2022 separated by position and level

This Top 300 list is searchable, downloadable, and printable. It was originally designed for offline and in-person drafts, but many people also use it for online fantasy football drafts. Below are basic instructions and strategy on how to use your top 300 list. The link to your list is right below the basic instructions and strategy. This list is completely free, but you must be logged in or registered as a free member.

Instructions

  • Print this list and bring it to your draft
  • On most computers, go to Case then click To print to print your Top 300 list
  • Cross out all names written
  • When drafting a player, write their name, position and bye week on the right side of the page

Basic Strategy

Using only the overall standings on draft day has many flaws. For example, if you drafted an elite quarterback and a tight end, you don’t want to waste your time looking at tons of QBs and TEs in the overall standings. This list of picks is separated by position and level for a reason. General rankings are useful, but only in the first round. After that, this Top 300 Cheat Sheet is what you want to use.

When writing, make sure you write for value and for positional scarcity. Make sure you know your league’s roster and scoring settings. Wide receivers have very little value in leagues where you only have to start 2 WRs. In the SuperFlex leagues, quarterbacks are much rarer.

Fantasy football draft season is upon us, and Sleeper’s popularity for hosting leagues continues to grow. With more leagues hosted on Sleeper every year, it’s crucial to know what you’re up against before your draft. Therefore, we’ve put together a Sleeper fantasy football cheat sheet to help you prepare to dominate your league as you head towards your 2022 fantasy draft.

If you’re looking to ask specific questions about your Sleeper League, be sure to join our free Discord server, where our analysts will come to answer your questions. All ADP figures in this article are from FantasyPros and correct at the time of writing (August 23, 2022).

Sleeping Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet | Tips and tricks to help you win your league

Before your draft, it is important that you carefully review your league settings. Sleeper is a highly customizable fantasy platform, and Commissars have several options. Sure, there are standard scoring settings and list sizes, but these can all be changed with relative ease.

The great thing with Sleeper is that when you watch the ADP for your draft, it’s based on your score settings (within reason). If your league is PPR or non-PPR, Sleeper adjusts the ADP you see. The same is true for 1QB or Superflex. The only downside is that everyone in your league sees these adjustments, so your chance of gaining an advantage over them is diminished.

Dormant fantasy football standard scoring system

The standard scoring format on Sleeper is PPR. All scores are set to standard during league setup, but can be changed by the commissioner in league settings.

As for passing, players get one point for 25 passing yards (0.04 points per yard), four points for touchdown passes, and two points for two-point conversions. QBs also lose a point for throwing an interception.

For running plays, players get one point per 10 yards (0.1 points per yard), six points per touchdown, and two points for converting a two-point conversion. In addition to the PPR score, receptions are worth 0.1 points per receiving yard, six points per touchdown, and two points for a two-point conversion.

There are also various points awarded for kickers and defense. Each PAT made earns a point, while each field goal and PAT missed costs the kicker a point. Scoring for shots is based on distance. Kicks between 0 and 39 yards are worth three points, kicks from 40 to 49 yards are worth four points, and kicks over 50 yards are worth five points.

Defenses are worth points for a number of elements of the game. Touchdowns on defense or special teams are worth six points, sacks are worth a single point, while interceptions, fumble recoveries, safeties and blocked kicks each earn two points. There are also points based on the number of actual points a defense gives up, with a sliding scale of 10 to -4.

Additionally, players can also earn points for kickoff returns, punt returns, or fumble recovery touchdowns. Players also lose two points if they lose a fumble.

Standard Sleeper List Requirements

The standard requirement of the Sleeper range is QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, Flex, Flex, kicker and D/ST. Each team also has five bench places to store supplies. There are no spare places for the injured as standard. Unlike other sites, there is no limit to the number of players that can be registered for a specific position.

There is no standard size when it comes to creating a Fantasy Football League Sleeper. When creating a league, the first option to appear is eight teams, but there are a number of different league sizes to choose from. Therefore, it is important to check the size of your Fantasy Sleeper football league and not just assume it is a 10 or 12 team league.

If your league has custom settings, you can use PFN’s fantastic resources to help you understand how player value changes with different settings. The rest of this article will look at the ADP generated from Sleeper’s standard league metrics to find players to target or avoid in your drafts this year.

Dormant ADP | Potential business to exploit

As we noted above, Sleeper is intriguing because, based on your scoring settings, they actually adjust the ADP in the draft to reflect the setting you’re using. However, PPR is their standard scoring metric of choice, and therefore we will compare their PPR ADP to the consensus on FantasyPros in our search for players to target or avoid in drafts.

Sleeper ADP is one of four source ADPs used to calculate consensus. Therefore, there may be limited differences between the two data sets.

Joe Burrow and Russell Wilson upped the value of Sleeper

The QB position, in general, follows a similar trend at both Sleeper and ADP consensus level. However, two of the top 12 QBs stand out with notable differences. Joe Burrow’s ADP consensus is 62.2, but on Sleeper he nearly makes a full turn earlier at 53 overall. The same goes for Russell Wilson, who has an ADP of 73 on Sleeper against 81.6 overall.

The pattern of QBs coming off the board shows that there are no sustained runs in the 1QB leagues. Josh Allen has an ADP in the second round of a 12-team league. Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert then both approach in turn 3 on average.

Lamar Jackson’s ADP puts him late in the fourth round. Burrow and Kyler Murray are in the fifth round on average, and Jalen Hurts slips into sixth. Wilson and Tom Brady both have ADPs next for Round 7, while Dak Prescott and Aaron Rodgers are usually in the eighth.

It’s a very regular and consistent pattern of quarterbacks being drafted. Therefore, you have the ability to really lock down where you want to take a QB and specifically target that part of the draft. Of course, individual leagues will vary and panic will set in, so be prepared to pivot if there’s a player you’re targeting this year.

RB values ​​have a similar pattern on Sleeper to consensus

There is a high degree of closeness between the RB selection model on Sleeper and the consensus. Throughout the 60th RB off the board, the historical key backs (5, 10, 15, 20, etc.) come off the board at roughly equivalent times in the draft.

A total of 45 fullbacks exit the board on Sleeper by the 150th pick overall. However, this is heavily loaded upstream. Even in PPR, seven of the top 10 players selected on average are RBs. By the time you reach pick 30, 15 of those picks have been RBs. From then on he moves to the other positions, but the Sleeper drafts are very heavily dominated by RBs early on.

In the first 50 selections overall, the individual values ​​remain fairly close. The first real gap is Breece Hall, who has an ADP Sleeper of 43, against a consensus of 52.8. Kenneth Walker III ranks 81st on Sleeper on average but has a consensus ADP of 105.2.

Surprisingly, these are the only two backs in the top 100 on Sleeper with a huge ADP differential compared to the consensus. The group of backs remaining in this part of the draft have their ADP Sleeper largely reflecting their consensus value.

Very few differences in Sleeper ADP at WR

There is little differential for WRs when it comes to Sleeper ADP. Through the first 40 players at the position, the selection trend is similar to that of the draft. Between WR40 and 55, the position then has a slight rise in value on Sleeper compared to the ADP consensus. The difference in this area is about a ride, but nothing too wild.

In terms of individual players, the first major difference comes from Jerry Jeudy. The Broncos wide receiver has an ADP of 49 on Sleeper, compared to 65.6 for the consensus. The WR of his fellow Broncos has a similar pattern, with an ADP on Sleeper of 51 and a consensus ADP of 63.

Other players more highly rated on Sleeper than the consensus include Allen Robinson (59 vs 70), Michael Thomas (64 vs 76.8), JuJu Smith-Schuster (69 vs 81), Rashod Bateman (76 vs 91.8) , Drake London (82 to 96.2) and Treylon Burks (95 to 116.8).

On the side of the players who present the good deals, they are less extreme in terms of their ADP differential. Brandin Cooks going to 63 from 54.4 is one of the biggest differences. Other values ​​include Hunter Renfrow (86 vs 79.4), Elijah Moore (90 vs 84.6) and Tyler Lockett (97 vs 87.6).

Tight final values ​​remain largely consistent on Sleeper

One thing that’s notable is that across the major fantasy sites, tight end values ​​— much like quarterbacks — are relatively stable among themselves. A few individual players vary, but the general theme is the same. Dormant ADPs for tight ends are within five picks either side of consensus on average for the top nine options.

The first gap is Dawson Knox, who has an ADP of 89 on Sleeper and 98.2 on consensus. We then see TEs starting to climb higher on Sleeper in general than the consensus has them rising. Therefore, if you are targeting a later player, you may need to move earlier than expected, such as Pat Freiermuth, Cole Kmet and Albert Okwuegbunam.
