It’s the middle of January, 2016, however, that won’t stop us from publishing our first 2016 Average Draft Position (ADP) data. The below ADP List was compiled using some of the top fantasy football ADP sources in the industry.

Note: this ADP is redraft.

I noticed, at a glance, a few big-time steals.

Devonta Freeman at 1.09 is low-risk if you ask me, as he still has top 1-4RB upside heading into 2016.

David Johnson at the 2.03 range seems like a bargain given that he has top 4-6RB appeal in 2016. Now, he’d have some risk if you had to draft him, or trade for him at top 4-6RB value, so this is great news. I imagine his value will only climb as the 2016 off-season (and the current NFL post-season) moves along.

Aaron Rodgers, Andrew Luck, Cam Newton, Blake Bortles and Russell Wilson all appear to be set for draft slots outside of the top 30 overall, which is fantastic news, as any one of those QBs can be the No. 1 overall scorer in fantasy football in 2016. That said, Kirk Cousins in the 8th-round is shockingly-low. And, Drew Brees falling into the 6th-round? Where to take a fantasy QB will be a hot topic in the coming months, something we will absolutely address.

Josh Gordon in the late 4th-round is awesome value, even though he was much, much cheaper weeks ago.

Two monster steals: DeMarco Murray in the 5th-round and Jordan Matthews in the 8th-round! Folks, Matthews is a HUGE, HUGE sleeper anywhere near 7th- to 8th-round value. Mark it down!

Look for more 2016 fantasy football Breakouts and Sleepers in coming articles, we’re going crank out tons of stuff on breakouts and sleepers in the coming months!

    I don’t have any faith in this data as it is shown, that said it’s to early to really know, but some of the older guys will go lower then seen here and JM and a bunch of others will go higher…..

      I hear ya. And, I agree in many ways, which I kinda say above. I can only collect it and report back, but this is what it is — for now. I agree, it feels off, lots of strange drafters on mock draft tools right now, maybe doing playoff drafting and screwing up the data.
