These Players Over/Undervalued Based on ADP
Do you know who's being overvalued in your fantasy draft? Our Championship Package members do! Earlier on Thursday morning they received another "Sleepers/Busts" Starter Alert listing 7 players we've found to be undervalued or overvalued based on their average draft position. Here's one of them:
"WR Bust Tavon Austin, St. Louis Rams ADP info: 28th WR selected; 75th player selected; Round 7 pick 3 The Rams drafted Austin to be a playmaker for them, but he's very likely to end up being the Rams #3 WR instead of an actual starter. Expectations for smaller explosive WR's like Austin are always higher than they should realistically be. We don't deny that Austin is likely to have a few very good games, but consistency will elude him as the Rams #3 WR. Austin's ADP is over 30 spots higher than teammate Chris Givens, who is locked in as a starter and an explosive WR in his own right that is also developing into a more reliable shorter and intermediate target. When you're the 28th WR selected, you are expected to be a high end fantasy WR3. We just don't see it being likely for the rookie. With Austin regularly being selected over guys like Steve Johnson, Cecil Shorts, and Anquan Boldin we think he's being overvalued, and by quite a bit."
Alerts also go out for injuries, like Tom Brady's big injury scare. We were just about to send injury updates on several key players who have been bitten by the injury bug recently when we got the initial reports about Brady having suffered an undisclosed knee injury in practice. So we included that on the Alert:
"Tom Brady reportedly has suffered a knee injury in practice today. Initial reports say that Brady was able to leave the field on his own without assistance. It sounds like the Patriots are being very cautious with him and will check him out to make sure it isn't anything serious. If it develops into something serious, you can expect another alert later today. But likely he just twisted it and will be fine."
We sent a follow up Alert 3 hours later when the results of the MRI came back negative and the diagnosis of a minor sprain that wasn't serious and that he is still a quality fantasy QB1.
