5 Players You Should Wait On In CBS Fantasy Football Drafts

  • David Gonos


Everyone loves to use Average Draft Position to help them understand who might be going off the draft boards before their next picks come up. Unfortunately, when you look at ADP on a source like FantasyPros or FantasyFootballCalculator, those don’t give the full picture of the likely ADP on the site your drafting in.

For instance, if you are drafting on the Yahoo Fantasy Football site, you might wait on a player because you see his ADP is low on FantasyPros. But the Yahoo rankings inside the draft room might proliferate players much differently than the ADP you’re using. FantasyPros is pulling in CBS ADP, ESPN ADP and a few more ADP sources.

If you learn which players are being drafted much lower on CBS (with higher ADP elsewhere), then you can understand why you can wait longer in CBS 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!
