It’s a big weekend for fantasy football drafts and there have been some major shifts in the latest Average Draft Position (ADP) data. While Jonathan Taylor has held the No. 1 overall ADP for much of the summer a handful of players are moving in the first round. Cooper Kupp moved ahead of Derrick Henry, Dalvin Cook dropped down past Najee Harris, while Justin Jefferson, Davante Adams and Stefon Diggs moved ahead of D’Andre Swift to edge out the first 12 picks. When including Ja’Marr Chase, WR3 and ninth overall, that’s five wide receivers all currently going in the first round of fantasy drafts.
But there’s major movement in the other rounds as well. We discussed the running back ADP risers and fallers in previous articles. Most notably, Dameon Pierce and Brian Robinson, two rookie running backs, are skyrocketing up fantasy draft boards while veterans like Damien Harris and Antonio Gibson are falling.
