Fantasy Football Draft Values by NFL Position

ALL - RB - WR - TE - QB - DEF

 

Corey Clement (RB, PHI) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~125 CURRENT ADP: ~140 ANALYSIS: Owners continue to invest in Jay Ajayi and, for the life of us, we will never understand why. Do we continue to chase perceived value from his 2016 season, where 49% of his yards game in three games? Ajayi has only ran for 100 yards in a game twice since he ran for over 200 in Week 15 of 2016. The Eagles have a great coaching staff, one that recognizescontinue reading...

C.J. Anderson (RB, CAR) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~105 CURRENT ADP: ~110 ANALYSIS: Looking at veterans, you need to look at the opportunity to get the value needed to make them worthwhile as a draft target. A player who fits this mold is C.J. Anderson in Carolina. While Christian McCaffrey is there, he is not going to get much more work in the running game then he did last season meaning there will be plenty of work for thecontinue reading...

Javorius Allen (RB, BAL) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~210 CURRENT ADP: ~220 ANALYSIS: Baltimore Ravens running back Javorius Allen is highly underrated coming into 2018. In fact, Allen was 2017’s PPR RB23 and is going in the 19th round on average. We really have no idea why Allen is not being drafted at all this year. The Ravens backfield is Alex CollinsKenneth Dixon and Allen. Dixon has done nothing thus far in his career and now he iscontinue reading...

Spencer Ware (RB, KC) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~225 CURRENT ADP: ~230 ANALYSIS:  There is a lot of risk with Kansas City Chiefs running back Spencer Ware. Coming off a devastating knee injury, and now behind second year runner Kareem Hunt, Ware may never be the same. However, this time last year, he was the Chiefs number one runner and Hunt was a third round rookie trying to earn playing time. The year prior, 2016, Ware took over for Jamaalcontinue reading...

T.J. Yeldon (RB, JAC) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~190 CURRENT ADP: ~200 ANALYSIS: When the Jacksonville Jaguars drafted running back Leonard Fournette with the number four overall pick of the 2017 draft, T.J. Yeldon became a forgotten man. However. with the departure of Chris Ivory, he now becomes one of the most valuable handcuffs in fantasy. In the three games Fournette missed last year, Yeldon averaged 12.7 PPR points per game. With Ivory gone, Yeldon should offer acontinue reading...

Kalen Ballage (RB, MIA) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~200 CURRENT ADP: ~210 ANALYSIS: Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage joins a Miami backfield that should be led by Kenyan Drake with Frank Gore also mixing in. Ballage will likely offer little in the run game, but where he can really make his mark is in the passing game and return game. Ballage has the size to be an every-down back, but his lack of vision and decisiveness make it unlikelycontinue reading...

Matt Breida (RB, SF) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~155 CURRENT ADP: ~165 ANALYSIS:  When Jerick McKinnon signed a four-year, 30 million dollar contract with the 49ers, the fantasy world lost their minds. This is for good reason, McKinnon is the perfect back for a Kyle Shanahan offense that continually produces high-end RB1s in fantasy. However, that does not mean we should just ignore the rest of the backfield. In 2016, with Shanahan in Atlanta, as the team’s RB2, Tevin Coleman handled 118continue reading...

Nyheim Hines (RB, IND) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~115 CURRENT ADP: ~125 ANALYSIS: Many are calling Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines this year’s Alvin Kamara, but that seems like a stretch. Still, Hines is the prototypical change of pace back for the NFL and could see a big role in the passing game similar to Chris Thompson a year ago. They are pretty much the same size, both are 5’8 and weigh about 195. Last year, Thompsoncontinue reading...

Giovani Bernard (RB, CIN) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~120 CURRENT ADP: ~130 ANALYSIS: Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard never gets any love on draft day; why? In 2017, in games only he and Mixon played (no Jeremy Hill), he averaged 11.33 fantasy points per game, which puts him at a solid flex level. However, in the two games Mixon missed, plus the Week 15 game when he left after a quarter, Bernard had 48 carries, 208 yards and twocontinue reading...

Chris Carson (RB, SEA) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~155 CURRENT ADP: ~165 ANALYSIS: First of all, Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson will not be the starter over Rashaad Penny; do not buy Carson thinking that he will be starting. The Seahawks invested high draft capital into Penny, and they traded up for him, so they obviously like him. However, the team likes Carson too and there is not a lot of running back depth on this roster. So, evencontinue reading...

Corey Clement (RB, PHI) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~120 CURRENT ADP: ~130 ANALYSIS: Philadelphia Eagles running back Corey Clement is probably best known for his Super Bowl touchdown catch that helped the Eagles to their first championship, but what was lost in his rookie season was how good he was on limited touches. According to Warren Sharp of SharpFootball, Clement was the Eagles #1 player in receiving Success Rate (65%) and was the #1 running back in success rate (51%). While continue reading...

Rex Burkhead (RB, NE) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~85 CURRENT ADP: ~90 ANALYSIS: New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead is the prototypical ZeroRB target. He has standalone value even if we assume that Sony Michel likely takes the starting role, and has tremendous upside should something happen to Michel. Last season, Burkhead played all 10 games with Dion Lewis in the lineup and still averaged three receptions a game and 12.98 PPR points. This is a totalcontinue reading...

Marlon Mack (RB, IND) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~90 CURRENT ADP: ~100 ANALYSIS:  With Frank Gore headed to Miami, and Robert Turbin suspended, Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack inherited the starter role in Indianapolis. The Colts did not address running back highly in the draft either, taking Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins with the 104th and 169th picks respectively. While Hines may give Mack some competition in the passing game, Mack should have little to nocontinue reading...

Kerryon Johnson (RB, DET) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~60 CURRENT ADP: ~70 ANALYSIS: When the Detroit Lions selected running back Kerryon Johnson with the 11th pick in the second round, most everyone was surprised. Johnson was the sixth running back selected in the draft, and went ahead of more highly touted backs such as Derrius Guice and Royce Freeman. The Lions have lacked a run game for what seems like an eternity, but Johnson could be the guycontinue reading...

Marshawn Lynch (RB, OAK) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~85 CURRENT ADP: ~90 ANALYSIS: Oakland Raiders running Marshawn Lynch should be in a battle for playing time in 2018. However, do not let the training camp reports of new head coach Jon Gruden wanting to feature Doug Martin scare you off from drafting Lynch. Despite these reports, it seems crazy that Lynch would not be the starter Week 1. He is the perfect Gruden-type back and showed signs of knocking thecontinue reading...

Isaiah Crowell (RB, NYJ) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~100 CURRENT ADP: ~110 ANALYSIS: The reason last season’s performance was such a let-down for New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell owners is due to the promise that he showed the previous season. His 2016-2017 numbers were not necessarily breathtaking, but he finished that year as the 14th best running back in both standard and PPR, and many were baited by this promise into a third or fourth round selection lastcontinue reading...

Chris Ivory (RB, BUF) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~165 CURRENT ADP: ~180 ANALYSIS: It’s always tough to deal with legal situations in fantasy football, especially since the NFL has proven to be inconsistent with its punitive measures regarding domestic violence situations in the past. Regardless, the fantasy fallout of a potential LeSean McCoy suspension would shift the entire outlook of the Bills offense and the landscape of the first three rounds. The Bills were a team that relied heavily on the runcontinue reading...

Royce Freeman (RB, DEN) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~45 CURRENT ADP: ~55 ANALYSIS: Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman is part of an emerging Broncos team that added Case Keenum and may be able to surprise people. The fact that a potential lead back has an ADP of 55 seems insane and he may even be a steal in the fifth round at that. This steal is especially true as Freeman could help on the ground and throughcontinue reading...

Devontae Booker (RB, DEN) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~120 CURRENT ADP: ~125 ANALYSIS: With both C.J. Anderson and Jamaal Charles gone, Denver Broncos third-year running back Devontae Booker will have the early opportunity to take a stranglehold of the lead back duties . In his first two years, he has been somewhat lost in a messy backfield and has totaled 911 total rushing yards in 29 games as a result. This will, however, be the first time he enterscontinue reading...

Derrick Henry (RB, TEN) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~25 CURRENT ADP: ~35 ANALYSIS: Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry seemed to be in line for a massive workload in a run-heavy offense with no competition for touches in sight. That all changed when Dion Lewis got PAID. The addition of Lewis does not destroy Henry's fantasy value, but it certainly does not help either. Henry may still finish as a top-15 running back, but it is most likely on the lower end. Thinkcontinue reading...

Joe Mixon (RB, CIN) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target ~15 CURRENT ADP: ~25 ANALYSIS: This very well could be a breakout year for Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon. The departure of Jeremy Hill reaffirms that Mixon is unquestionably going to be the Week 1 starting running back, barring an injury. Mixon has the potential to be a three-down workhorse, and with an improved offensive line that includes Cordy Glenn, a talented left tackle when healthy. Expect an increased workload and production from thiscontinue reading...

Jerrick McKinnon (RB, SF) - 2018 Fantasy Football Draft Sleeper

BALLER MOVE:  Target ~20 CURRENT ADP: ~25 ANALYSIS: San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon is the most obvious top-end sleeper leading into the season. He was the most obvious when he was signed by San Francisco, but there was concern over the 49ers drafting an early down back - someone like Rashaad PennyRoyce Freeman, or even Nick Chubb. None of that happened. Kyle Shanahan said he envisions Jerickcontinue reading...

Giovani Bernard (RB, CIN) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Adds

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 45% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: Is Giovani Bernard is still available in your fantasy league? Bernard had been a popular add while Joe Mixon was missing time with a concussion, but Mixon's return for Week 16 meant that Bernard was expected to return to irrelevance. That didn't happen, as Mixon suffered an ankle injury early against the Lions and Bernard ended up havingcontinue reading...

Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

Ho, ho, ho and a Merry Christmas to you all. This piece is for the select few of you who are either in two-week championships or somehow got talked into doing a league where Week 17 is the sole week for determining titles. I'll avoid the soapbox for now, but the playing-time chaos that will unfold is not what we think about when testing fantasy football skills. Let's get you ascontinue reading...

Running Backs Waiver Wire - Week 17 Pickups and Adds

It's the final week of the NFL season and you're still fighting for something, even if it's just pride. Good for you. While many dedicated fantasy managers deride leagues where Week 17 counts for anything at all, there's something to be said for for seeing things through to the end. Plus, with the potential for many star players on playoff-bound teams resting and several others from losing teams put on IR or benched to givecontinue reading...

Waiver Wire Express - Week 17 Lightning Round

While many of you only have the Monday "Night" Football doubleheader left in your fantasy season, we here at RotoBaller still have those of you who play to the last minute of the regular season covered. In the interest of getting you the most timely information for your title matchups, consider this the waiver wire lightning round heading into Week 17. This column is published early every week and then updated on a dailycontinue reading...

Giovani Bernard (RB, CIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 48% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: Giovani Bernard took advantage of Joe Mixon's absence last week, rushing 14 times for 30 yards and a score. The 30 yards obviously is not ideal, but Bernard also had three receptions for 13 yards, giving him a nice boost in PPR formats. With Mixon expected to return next week, Bernard will shift back into his change-of-pace back role. He could seecontinue reading...

Mike Davis (RB, SEA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 49% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: Anyone who watched Sunday's 42-7 beatdown that the Seahawks took from the Rams may be unwilling to play anyone from Seattle's offense (save Russell Wilson) for the rest of the season. Indeed Mike Davis, just like the rest of this team, struggled on Sunday. He rushed six times for 19 yards and had two receptions for 20 yards. His day wascontinue reading...

Peyton Barber (RB, TB) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Adds

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 36% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: With Doug Martin healthy and starting, it looked like the Peyton Barber hype train was pulling back into the station, especially after Martin found the end zone early in Week 14. But aside from that score, Martin was ineffective, finishing with 10 carries for just 26 yards. Barber saw the majority of the carries in the secondcontinue reading...

Tarik Cohen (RB, CHI) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Adds

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 44% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: Chicago Bears rookie running back Tarik Cohen has had an up-and-down year. The Bears opened the season with Cohen heavily involved in the run game and passing game as starting running back Jordan Howard struggled to get going, but Cohen began to see the field less and less as Howard's rushing attempts-per-game grew. The Bears changed quarterbackscontinue reading...

Mike Davis (RB, SEA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 39% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: Seattle running backs have been unreliable to say the least this fantasy season. A cavalcade of running backs ranging from Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls, Chris Carson, C.J. Prosise and J.D McKissic has now come to Mike Davis, who began the year on the practice squad. Davis has been the main guy in thecontinue reading...

Kerwynn Williams (RB, ARI) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: Adrian Peterson's (neck) surprise inactivity in Week 13 opened the door for Williams, who ran 16 times for 97 yards. He wasn't involved in the passing game. Williams' fantasy ceiling remains limited, though, as he's not much of a pass catcher, and he hadn't seen more than three carries in any game before this. The Rams don’t have a great rush defense compared tocontinue reading...

Aaron Jones (RB, GB) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10-12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 35% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: Jones would touch the ball just once in his return to action after missing two weeks with an MCL sprain, but he made it count. The fifth-round rookie had just celebrated his 23rd birthday on Saturday and celebrated his health by winning the game for Green Bay with a 20-yard touchdown against Tampa Bay. Jamaal Williams owns this backfield right now, but Tycontinue reading...

TJ Yeldon (RB, JAC) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: T.J. Yeldon is a running back who rarely carries the ball. In fact, in Week 13 against the Colts Yeldon did not have any carries. He did, however, see two targets which he turned into 25 yards. Yeldon has been serving as a check-down back in the Jaguars passing game, with Leonard Fournette handling the majority of carries. Yeldon hascontinue reading...

J.D. McKissic (RB, SEA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 24% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: Seattle's has had the most unpredictable backfield in the NFL, and fantasy owners would be wise to stay away in shallower formats. Mike Davis seems to have taken over every down duties for the time being, but rookie Chris Carson is nearing a return which could further muddy the waters. Veterans Thomas Rawls and continue reading...

Marlon Mack (RB, IND) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Adds

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack has had an up-and-down year in terms of consistency, but he's trending upwards right now after accounting for 54 yards on just seven touches against a tough Jaguars defense. With the Colts out of contention in the AFC South, Mack could see more touches moving forward as the team shies away from continue reading...

Jacquizz Rodgers (RB, TB) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: Jacquizz Rodgers was a must-start the first few weeks of the season while Doug Martin served his three-game suspension. Quizz only found the end zone once in those first few weeks but was a valuable RB in PPR formats as a pass-catcher. Quizz has slowed down considerably since Martin's return, but a concussion pushed Martin to the sideline last Sunday andcontinue reading...

Austin Ekeler (RB, LAC) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Adds

BALLER MOVE: Add in All PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 34% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: Austin Ekeler had his worst game of the month on Thanksgiving against the Cowboys. His stat-line? Six carries for 15 yards, and three catches for 55. Ekeler has carved out a role in the Chargers offense as a change-of-pace back and a receiving threat out of the backfield. He found the end zone three times in November, as he has surprisingly eatencontinue reading...

Danny Woodhead (RB, BAL) - Week 11 Waiver Wire Adds

BALLER MOVE: Add in all PPR leagues OWNED IN: 36% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Up to this point in the season, the oft-injured Woodhead has played in only three games the last two seasons, but he could come off Injured Reserve later this week and return to face the Green Bay Packers. Most of his previous owners likely dumped him, but now is the time to add him again as he nears a return for the Ravens. If the Ravens docontinue reading...

Andre Ellington (RB, ARI) - Week 11 Waiver Wire Adds

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: It may have been a meaningless touchdown that Andre Ellington scored on Thursday night, but it's a reminder that he could still have fantasy value even in a struggling offense. He was stymied in Week 11, catching just three of six targets for 26 yards and running for four yards, but it did come against the Seattle defense. Doubters maycontinue reading...

Rex Burkhead (RB, NE) - Week 11 Waiver Wire Adds

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Just as he had become a forgotten man, Rex Burkhead now appears to be the focal point of New England's offense, just to confuse us all. With Mike Gillislee scratched for the Sunday night tilt with Denver, Burkhead got the ball early and often. He scored a touchdown early in the first quarter and nearly scored againcontinue reading...

Thomas Rawls (RB, SEA) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Yahoo! Leagues ANALYSIS: Thomas Rawls had his most productive game of the season in Week 9, both on the ground and in the air. Rawls had nine rushes for 39 yards and caught two passes for 31 yards en route to a season high 70 total yards. The fact that that was his best performance of the season shows how volatile the Seattle runningcontinue reading...

Latavius Murray (RB, MIN) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 45% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: The Vikings invested quite a bit into Latavius Murray in the offseason, and once rookie running back Dalvin Cook started playing well, it began to look as if we would never see the investment come to fruition. Unfortunately Cook is out for the year with a knee injury, and the weight of the Minnesota runningcontinue reading...

Kenyan Drake (RB, MIA) - Week 9 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: Guess who just became the guy in Miami. With the Miami Dolphins' questionable decision to trade their Pro Bowl running back to the Philadelphia Eagles for a fourth round pick, former backup running back Kenyan Drake will now step into a very increased role. Yes, Miami possesses worst offense in football, and yes, they rank 26th in rushing attempts, and 31st in rushingcontinue reading...

Alfred Morris (RB, DAL) - Week 9 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In All Leagues OWNED IN: 40% of leagues ANALYSIS: The never-ending saga of Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension took another turn this week as it was reinstated. While there’s still a chance that the suspension is once again put off, it appears more likely that it’ll latch on for good and Elliott will finally be forced to serve it. That, of course, has an enormous effect in the fantasy football game, ascontinue reading...

Ted Ginn (WR, NO) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-plus team leagues OWNED IN: 52% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Known mainly as an inconsistent deep threat with poor hands, Ginn is turning that narrative around in 2017 with the Saints. He had his best game of the season in Week 7, catching all seven of his season-high seven targets for 141 yards. He's been surprisingly efficient, too, catching all of his targets in each of the past three games and 22 of his 27continue reading...

Josh McCown (QB, NYJ) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-plus team leagues OWNED IN: 13% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Although he tossed a costly late-game interception in the Week 7 loss to Miami, McCown also went 17-for-27 for 209 yards, three passing touchdowns and one rushing score. The previous week he went for a season-high 354 yards and completed 31 passes against the Patriots. The veteran journeyman isn't lighting the world on fire, but he's been surprisingly decent for Gang Green with 12 total touchdowns (twocontinue reading...

Jack Doyle (TE, IND) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-plus team leagues OWNED IN: 44% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: If Andrew Luck (shoulder) had been playing this year, Doyle would surely be owned in well over 50 percent of leagues. But with Jacoby Brissett under center, this offense as a whole has been severely downgraded. As is the case with many inexperienced quarterbacks like Brissett, they often rely heavily on their tight end as a safety blanket. That has especiallycontinue reading...

DeAndre Washington (RB, OAK) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in all leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Marshawn Lynch's one-game suspension for entering the field and contacting an official during a scrum last Thursday was upheld, meaning Washington and Jalen Richard will split the backfield workload in Week 8 against the Bills. After Lynch was ejected last week, Washington received a season-high nine carries for 33 yards and scored for the first time this season. He also added three catchescontinue reading...

Jalen Richard (RB, OAK) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 11% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Marshawn Lynch's tussle with an official earned him an ejection in Week 7 against the Chiefs, followed by a one-game suspension. After Lynch was ejected, Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington each saw considerable action, with Richard running for 31 yards and catching four passes for 45 yards. While it was Washington who found the end zone, Richard looks like thecontinue reading...
