What is ADP you ask? Well my little fantasy football rookie, it means Average Draft Position and this is very important when dealing with fantasy football if you wish to be a manager of a fantasy team. Websites compile an archive of the results of the internet drafts that took place. Programs are used to take the sum total of the drafts and come up with an independent statistics for where players are being drafted in this year’s draft. These are real drafts with real fantasy owners, so you’re getting the closest thing you can have this time of year to a picture of what your drafts are going to look like. This is a good tool to take certain information from.
Some leagues don’t really follow the script entirely according to what the average drafter is doing. More often than not, a few number of those people listed are going to be off the board, but that means a handful of players who are drafted on average by 3.4 spot are going to be available. ADP is not really a science but it does show you the possibilities. It gives owners the reassurance that by looking at a mock draft tells them that they are going to get a player of a certain tier or caliber at a spot.
Owners make use of mock drafts but these are different from an ADP since it is entirely in the realm of fantasy. These are draft projections of what you think your draft is going to look like if you are playing. You can make a mock draft of your own if you have been playing in a league for at least 5 years with the same owners. This will give you enough experience with them and have the knowledge of the other owners’ tendencies, likes, and dislikes involving other players. Taking what you know about the prevailing mood of fantasy football owners in a particular year through ADP lists, together with what you’ve seen from fantasy expert’s mock drafts can help you create a reliable mock draft of your own.
Mock drafts can help you set up a full draft strategy once you have understood the game and ADPs well. These will help you get an idea what your starting lineup will look like and helps you be prepared. You can ask your friends in a league to help you make one if you are having trouble.
