One Running Back to Target in Each Round of Your Fantasy Football Draft
As soon as the calendar flips to August, I can feel it -- football is almost here.
What an exciting time. Training camps are in full throttle, the preseason is under way and before you know it, you're going to be on the clock for your fantasy draft.
Are you ready?
If you're a degenerate, now is the time to put the final touches on months of work. All of the player news updates, sleeper stories, player-specific pieces and projections through which you’ve combed have set you up for success.
If you’re just starting draft preparations, that probably means you have a life. What's that like?
No matter where you're at with your draft prep, we have tools that can assist you. We’ve put together an all-encompassing, fully-customizable draft kit that can help you cram for the big exam. We also have a sweet new Draft Kit app. You want to win your league, and we want you to win your league -- let's be pals.
This close to the start of the regular season, average draft position (ADP) data has pretty well sorted itself out, barring any (hate to even say it) preseason injuries. While every draft is its own entity, we can fairly accurately predict, on average, which players will be available at various points throughout the draft.
That information can be invaluable. It can keep you from reaching for a player when chances are he’ll be available on your next turn, and it can also help you stay grounded if the draft goes berserk.
With that in mind, let’s look at a running back in each of the first 10 rounds who is worth targeting in your fantasy football draft. Here is the current ADP for running backs in 12-team point-per-reception (PPR) leagues, via Fantasy Football Calculator, which is the basis for all ADP data in this piece.
