Fantasy Football ADP Report: Weekly Change in Average Draft Position
Starting today and every Saturday through September 7th, I will compare and post the change in average draft position (ADP) from FantasyFootballCalculator.com.
While you can obtain the actual ADP of all players from their website, what I will post is how the ADP has changed from the previous week(s) based on 12-team standard-scoring mock drafts.
Below we list the players with the biggest changes in ADP by position, but you can view the full list in a sortable spreadsheet here.
With the number of injuries suffered during training camp (today alone: Jeremy Maclin, Dennis Pitta, etc.), these ADPs will continue to change and injuries will impact much of the changes over the next month and change.
A player's change in ADP from the previous week may not have much significance by itself. A few weeks of changes should reveal trends that a fantasy owner may be able to use when analyzing the collective psychology of fantasy football owners.
