Fantasy Football ADP Report (8/17/13): Weekly Change in Average Draft Position

Continuing our weekly average draft position (ADP) update 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.

In some cases, the changes in ADP will be due to obvious factors such as injury as we see with the hip injury that Percy Harvin sustained. Not only is Harvin the biggest faller in ADP over the past four weeks, but Golden Tate is the biggest riser during that span.

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.

Comparing ADP from August 17th to August 10th, here are the players with the biggest jumps in ADP by position (overall ADP in parenthesis):
