Another great question out of our forum from member "gcmartin". Martin basically needs a PPR 14 Team Draft Strategy. But he asked us if ADP adjust based on his leagues settings. Well, ADP is pretty static and varies from site to site - ESPN ADP is xyz - myfantasyleague is yyxx - and yahoo adp is zzx - meaning they are all different. ADP is used to help you make a guess as to if someone will be around when it's your pick in the draft. But if you know your league, how they draft, trends and tendencies etc, this is the best ADP you can use; ADP created from your 2013 draft results.
Even though I have Peyton #1 in our draft guide, I have a feeling after pre-season week 3 he's going to drop to #3 behind Rodgers and Brees. This is because his schedule is starting to look a lot freaking tougher than last year, a lot tougher! Brees is a lock for 5k passing yards, he's proven it 3 years in a row and he has averaged more than 42 touchdowns per year for the last 3 years. Peyton and Rodgers can't say that, sorry Pey Pey and Ro Ro =(
If you want a top tier quarterback it's easier than ever to make up at RB later in the draft. I love the following grouping that should be available from round 4 through 7. I'll highlight the guys below that could easily put up top 10 numbers. And there is always 1 or 2 running backs that become waiver wire beast by week 4. We will email you when they start showing signs as long as you're a member.
|C.J. Spiller (he's over valued in rnd 4)||Buf||46.3|
|Bishop Sankey (round 7, yes please)||Ten||80.3|
|Chris Johnson (fresh start)||NYJ||61.4|
|Steven Jackson (healthy line)||Atl||72.2|
So here's my Round by Round ??PPR 14 Team Draft Strategy
With the 7th pick here's what I would do.
Round by Round:
Round 1 (#7 for you) - Top Tier RB - AKA (Forte, AP, McCoy, Charles, Lacey) - if these guys are gone plus a QB - take Brees or Rodgers - let's someone else risk Peyton against a much much harder schedule this year.
Round 2 - Top Tier WR if Brees or Rodgers is gone or you took one of them in round 1 - AKA D. Thomas, Calvin J, B Marshall etc
Round 3 - Draft anyone still available that is in your top tier. This will probably be Julius Thomas or Gronk. If RB has been butchered and you're looking at the tier of RB I listed above, now is the time to go RB - otherwise fill up a top tier TE like JT or JG and if they are gone look to WR once more.
Round 4, 5, 6 - Now headed in to the forth round you probably have QB WR WR; now it's time to draft three RB back to back.
Here' the guys you'll see and the order in which I like them. Pay attention to ADP knuckleheads, don't over reach by more than 1 full round.
Round 7: Now you're in Round 7 and it's time to lock up TE if you haven't already - Pitta should be there - take him or another RB if you think you can wait one more round before grabbing Pitta. I also like Jordan Reed and Olsen here.
Round 9 and later sleepers you need to draft this year:
- Zach Ertz and add L. Green if all you draft is Ertz at TE. Both in round 9ish -
- Brandon Cooks
- Jonathan Stewart - stop shaking your head and do it, high ceiling here!
- Ryan Tannehill - great back up with huge upside
- Justin Hunter -
- Kelvin Benjamin -
Good luck with your PPR draft!
