High-Stakes Fantasy Football ADP Analysis: Round 2
Trevor heads into Round 2 for his breakdown of NFFC Best Ball ADPs.
With fantasy football draft season kicking off, it's time to take a look at some high-stakes Best Ball ADPs. I've already covered Round 1, so let's get right into the biggest values and most likely busts in Round 2.
NFFC Fantasy Football ADP Evaluations Round 2
13. QB Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills
I like Josh Allen as much as the next guy, but just like with Patrick Mahomes in Round 1, it’s just too early for me to take a quarterback. If you do go the quarterback route this early, then you need to hit on some good sleepers later in the draft.
14. WR Davante Adams, Las Vegas Raiders
Adams is as consistent as they come, and I would take him at number 14 every time. In fact, I would take him in my top 10 ahead of CeeDee Lamb and even Cooper Kupp. Expect another 1,500-yard double-digit touchdown season.
15. RB Saquon Barkley, New York Giants
Barkley is another player I would gladly take at this spot and would push into the first round. I have taken him as high as sixth overall. He had 1,600 total yards last season and 10 touchdowns. There are only a handful of backs that will get all the workload on their team, and Barkley is one of them.
16. WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Detroit Lions
St. Brown feels a bit high at this spot but he’s a good pick regardless. If you really like him, then take him here, as he won’t fall to you in the third round. He has moved up several spots since he figures to get a ton of work with WR DK Chark moved on and the suspension to WR Jameson Williams for the first six games. St. Brown has the potential to be a top-five receiver in a perfect season.
17. WR A.J. Brown, Philadelphia Eagles
Brown will definitely produce, but I am a little worried that fellow WR DeVonta Smith may develop into the team’s number-one receiver. Regardless, there are plenty of targets to be had, and Brown should eclipse 1,300 yards and score double-digit touchdowns.
18. WR DeVonta Smith, Philadelphia Eagles
Smith could develop into the Eagle’s number-one receiver. He sure lit it up in the second half of the season. You are going to get a consistent 10-15 points every week from him, with some huge games as well.
19. WR Garrett Wilson, New York Jets
Wilson’s stock has risen ever since it was known that QB Aaron Rodgers was coming to town. Wilson had a very impressive rookie year with poor quarterback play, imagine what he can do with Aaron Rodgers? I would expect 1,200 yards and double-digit TDs.
20. RB Josh Jacobs, Las Vegas Raiders
Jacobs is coming off a tremendous season that will be difficult to duplicate. He had over 2,000 total yards and 12 touchdowns. I see a bit of a drop-off coming, but that is baked into this price, so I would still feel good to get Jacobs at 20.
21. QB Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles
I personally think Hurts is the top fantasy quarterback, but I’m not taking him, or any QB, here. If you really, really like him, then go for it. You can find value at other positions if you take a quarterback early, but just realize you can still get a high-end receiver and quality back at this spot.
22. RB Nick Chubb, Cleveland Browns
Chubb quietly had almost 1,800 yards rushing and receiving combined and 13 touchdowns. He shouldn’t get pushed for volume, and his former teammate Kareem Hunt is now a free agent. Chubb isn’t flashy but gets you solid production, and maybe the Browns will score more in Deshaun Watson’s second year as their quarterback.
23. QB Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals
Burrow is going to give you some huge games, but this is still too early for a quarterback. Let someone else take him while you get decent QB numbers later.
24. RB Tony Pollard, Dallas Cowboys
Pollard is now the clear-cut main running back in Dallas, and many are wondering if he can handle a full workload. My guess is … maybe. I have to be honest; I am a little wishy-washy about Pollard, as I think there may be another back or two who are going later who I would rather have. Still, the production should be there, and I can’t fault anyone for drafting him in this spot.
