Fantasy Football ADP (July 21st 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 7/14 to 7/21 in parenthesis) by position:

Quarterbacks

  1. Jake Locker, Titans: -6.2 (196.6 on 7/14 to 190.4 on 7/21)
  2. Michael Vick, Jets: -3.7 (192.8 to 189.1)
  3. Tom Brady, Patriots: -2.0 (69.8 to 67.8)

Running Backs

  1. John Kuhn, Packers: -9.1 (197.2 to 188.1)
  2. Mike Tolbert, Panthers: -3.6 (188.9 to 185.3)
  3. Marcus Lattimore, 49ers: -3.2 (187.1 to 183.9)

Wide Receivers

  1. DeAndre Hopkins, Texans: -7.3 (125.4 to 118.1)
  2. Justin Hunter, Titans: -5.5 (154.7 to 149.2)
  3. Dexter McCluster, Titans: -5.5 (192.9 to 187.4)

Tight Ends

  1. Tyler Eifert, Bengals: -5.4 (190.3 to 184.9)
  2. Coby Fleener, Colts: -4.3 (187.7 to 183.4)
  3. Ladarius Green, Chargers: -4.1 (126.6 to 122.5)
