8 Sleepers to Target in ESPN Leagues

Average draft position (ADP) tends to vary by hosting site and using it to our advantage can be a game changer when drafting on those platforms.

It’s easy for a player to get lost in the news-cycle shuffle which is why a tool like ADP Bargains is so valuable. By pairing 4for4’s rankings with ESPN’s ADP we can tease out players with significant discrepancies and target some serious values.
