10 ADP Risers & Fallers After Preseason Week 3
Draft frenzy season is here and analyzing BB10 ADP from week-to-week during the preseason is helpful to gather an overall impression of where players are being drafted. Drafters of BB10 best-ball leagues tend to be sharper than your average fantasy football participant, so you may find players will slip a bit further in some leagues than others.
In other words, ADP data is very useful but is not everything, so don’t ride or die with it.
In this piece, I’ll take a look at some of the biggest risers and fallers from the third week of the preseason, comparing their ADP from August 19th to August 26th and how you should approach them moving forward. A player’s ADP can change for a plethora of reasons and diving into the cause of that movement can certainly help come draft time.
Note: The number in parenthesis represents their overall +/- ADP jump.
Carlos Hyde – RB, Chiefs (-50 overall ADP)
Hyde appears to be slipping down the Kansas City depth chart, and as a result, his ADP is also taking a nosedive. He was the fourth RB to take the field for the Chiefs after Damien Williams, Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson last week and only had one carry for one yard. There’s a legit chance that Hyde doesn’t make the final roster, so he’s falling off the fantasy radar in all league formats.
Diontae Johnson – WR, Steelers (-48 overall ADP)
A third-round pick for Pittsburgh this season, Johnson has not only been slow to develop, but he was also held out of practice last week for an undisclosed injury. It’s not looking like Johnson will crack the top four on Pittsburgh’s WR depth chart as his stock is falling. He’s gone from a last-round flier to undraftable as the preseason rolls on.
Lamar Miller – RB, Texans (-47 overall ADP)
