Sure, free agency is only half over and no one has any clue when the season will start, but people are still drafting somehow. There are some real degenerates out there.
And it looks like some of their picks were made in a drunken stupor.
OK, so maybe I’m the idiot for going against the consensus, but for these 12 players, the average draft position (ADP) just doesn’t work for me. They’re all going ahead of where I rank them, ahead of players who I think are better.
Stolen base desperation likely plays a part. I’ve written about how I’m not going to get caught up in it this year. It’s also not clear to me that everyone is clued in to the effect the new ball had on certain players last year.
This list differs from my bust picks by focusing more on draft inefficiencies than downside potential, but there’s a small amount of crossover between the two. Also, note that these ADP values come from FantasyPros, which brings together the data from several different sites and deals exclusively with Rotisserie leagues.
