Fantasy Football ADP (August 4th 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 7/28 to 8/4 in parenthesis) by position:

Quarterbacks

  1. Sam Bradford, St. Louis Rams: -7.9 (191.1 on 7/28 to 183.2 on 8/4)
  2. E.J. Manuel, Buffalo Bills: -7.0 (194.4 to 187.4)
  3. Brian Hoyer, Cleveland Browns: -6.0 (189.2 to 183.2)

Running Backs

  1. Andre Williams, New York Giants: -14.7 (187.7 to 173.0)
  2. James White, New England Patriots: -8.0 (186.3 to 178.3)
  3. James Starks, Green Bay Packers: -6.0 (186.6 to 180.6)

  1. Cody Latimer, Denver Broncos: -8.5 (195.4 to 186.9)
  2. Brian Hartline, Miami Dolphins: -6.4 (189.1 to 182.7)
  3. Kenny Britt, St. Louis Rams: -6.3 (183.3 to 177.0)

Tight Ends

  1. Jace Amaro, New York Jets: -11.3 (187.9 to 176.6)
  2. Garrett Graham, Houston Texans: -10.0 (184.0 to 174.0)
