Obviously, ADP can never account for what will actually happen in individual fantasy drafts. However, especially in IDP leagues, we can merge ADP results with the Rotowire player rankings that can be found in our draft kit to create a list of players to target as potential values. The end result should help fantasy owners to get at least one player from each tier while allowing positional flexibility during other rounds of the draft.
Drafting a top-10 player: The most likely player who can be acquired cheaply is Jason Pierre-Paul, who we have ranked at No. 9, but he's typically going off the board as the 18th defensive lineman. The next best value is Myles Garrett, who's being drafted as the ninth lineman, though we rank him at No. 4. Finally, we like Danielle Hunter as the seventh-best lineman, though his positional ADP is at No. 10.
Selecting a lineman from 11 to 20: The best value in this group is Brandon Graham, our No. 16 lineman, but he's typically on the board after 30 players have been selected at the position. Also, Ndamukong Suh and Linval Joseph fall in at Nos.17 and 20, but usually are still available after 25 linemen have been chosen.
Value options for deeper leagues in order: Linval Joseph, Kawann Short, Emmanuel Ogbah, Sheldon Richardson, Larry Ogunjobi, and Muhammad Wilkerson are all ranked in our top-31, yet all are typically available once roughly 40 defensive
