5 Players You Should Wait On In ESPN Fantasy Football Drafts

  • David Gonos


A good Fantasy owner uses Average Draft Positions to help them figure out their draft gameplan. A good – and smart – Fantasy owner looks at ADP on all sites, then compares them directly with the ADP on the draft service they’re using before setting their gameplan.

In other words, if you’re drafting an ESPN Fantasy Football team, you’ll be looking at their in-house rankings in their draft room, which affects their site’s ADP. But then, if you look at FantasyPros’ ADP or FantasyFootballCalculator’s ADP, those numbers will be much different in many cases.

So if you can learn which players are being drafted much lower on ESPN (with higher ADP on other sites), then you can understand why you can wait a round or two longer on ESPN Fantasy Football drafts than other sites.

You can also use this free one-man mock draft tool to figure out where players should be drafted!
