Fantasy Football ADP (July 14th Update): Biggest Weekly Risers/Fallers

Every Monday, we post an update in players that have had the biggest moves — both up and down — in fantasy football average draft position (ADP) from the previous week.

With this information, we can get a better sense of the collective perceptions of fantasy football owners (mock drafters). If a player is moving up the ADP chart, it may lead us to using a higher pick than his current ADP to make sure we secure a targeted player.

Of course, a player's ADP (and movement) is just one (small) piece in determining who to draft and our strategy used to assemble a fantasy roster.

For purposes of our study, we will use 14-team ADP data from Fantasy Football Calculator. While most may play in 12-team leagues, using ADP data from 14-team leagues provides data on more players.

Below are the three biggest risers over the past week (ADPs on 7/7 to 7/14 in parenthesis) by position:

Quarterbacks

  1. Teddy Bridgewater, Vikings: -5.7 (188.6 on 7/7 to 182.9 on 7/14)
  2. Joe Flacco, Ravens: -4.5 (187.8 to 183.3)
  3. Ryan Fitzpatrick, Texans: -4.1 (190.0 to 185.9)

  1. DeDe Dorsey, Free Agent: -19.3 (194.1 to 174.8)
  2. Jonathan Stewart, Panthers: -13.5 (147.2 to 133.7)
  3. Lance Dunbar, Cowboys: -12.1 (166.4 to 154.3)
