2014 Fantasy Football RB ADP update

Hey Guys
Here is the latest 2014 Fantasy Football RunningBack ADP update as of July 22nd.
A few name you won’t be seeing right now in the first nine rounds of mock drafts that I am keeping a eye out on who’s fantasy fortunes could turn around with a few fumbles or even a injury like NYG David Wilson fresh with the news that he has been cleared to practice. Wilson looks to be heading into camp as the 3rd RB but he is a Peyton Hillis injury away from having value and with a ADP of round 12 pick 2 I would jump all over that.Few other names just to keep a eye on with a low LOW ADP currently behind a Rab with a realistic chance to miss time -Donald Brown SD 14.4 , Ahmad Bradshaw IND 13.10, Andre Brown HOU 13.6 one word Foster!!

Fantasy Football ADP draft day steals

So it that time of year where everyone is looking for draft day steals.

We all enjoyed late round production in 2013 from guys like Alshon Jeffery and Knowshon. This year I see a lot of names who are not getting any love in mock drafts some rookies and some are fantasy football vet who once have helped or even lead your team to a championship .

Here is a list of guys with low ADP (Avg Draft Position) that could become draft day steals. (Round they are being drafted. pick in said round)

DeAngelo Williams (9.12)/Jonathan Stewart(12.7)

I’m leaning toward Stewart more here all signs point to Stewart being healthy and with coach speak saying they would be happy if the Wideouts would  get 12-20 rec per-game. That tells me the Offense might be more run heavy.question marks around Cam Newton and his band of misfit Wide Revisers maybe just maybe D-Will and J-Stew might payoff.

Miles Austin (14.5)

Without Josh Gordon and if Austin can stay on the field I think he has the chance to see the Endzone at least 7-8 times. Before this I had him at 6 TD.as far as Rec before the Gordon debacle I projected Miles Austin at 65 Rec now I’ll give him a bump to 72-75.

Odell Beckham Jr (13.10)

Look OBJ has a real opportunity to be the 3rd WR on this team and truly think he could sidestep Rueben Randel as the number two guy on this team. my projection- 66Rec 760Yd 7TD

Tre Mason (11.7)

Realistically Mason is a great handcuff this season but what if we tried to put the clues together..One of the best RB in college football last season,The Rams already set with Zac Stacy drafts Mason with a 3rd round pick. I would not be shocked if Mason has 120 ATT 440 Yd and 4TD.

Steve Smith (12.10)

Last season Smith netted 97 fantasy points in standard leagues this season I think you see a bit of a bump upward in his stats I’m going to guess about 60-67Rec and 7TD,Add that to the fact he is being drafted late in the 12th and early in the 13th round Steve Smith is a draft day steal.

Heres a list of other names you keep a eye out on..

DeAndre Hopkins (11.3)

Carlos Hyde (11.8)

Jerrett Boykin (11.11)

David Wilson (12.4)

Markus Wheaton (13.4)

Fantasy Football : 8 Over/Under questions for you to ponder

Its my Favorite time of year -Fantasy Football projection time..

This year instead of a list of my projection I wanted to try something new This year I want to play the over/under game with you.

So here are the rules I’ll list a player and a number send me a email with what you think said player will do over/under and your best guest.

Your answer Will end up in the podcast seen on The Fantasy Sports Network Channel 147 on Cable-vision /The F Word Podcast and this hit blog.

So Email your opinion to Dennis77Farrell@Gmail.com or go to http://www.thefantasychronicles.com/

OK here we goooooo…..

1.Over/Under RG3 4 rushing TD? I’ll say over at 5 a stretch sure but he has had 7 before and I can see him doing it.

2. Over/Under Nick Foles will toss 30 TD’s this year?  Every site and fantasy football magazine has Foles between 24-27 TD

I think Nick can hit the 30TD mark but I’ll stop short at 33.

3.LeSean McCoy Over/Under  45Rec? Some places have him at 50 other have him at 42-45. Myself I believe Darren Sproles 

will have more of a impact on McCoy in the passing game. Under at 40Rec

4.Can Bishop Sankey Rookie Rb for Tennessee top 190 stranded league fantasy points?  I’ll bite on this one and go Over on this one

I have him as one of my big sleepers and could sneak in the top 15 by years end.

5.Over/Under on games played for Ryan Mathews for 2014 is 13? I think 13 is perfect but if I had to pick one I would say Over at 14.

6. Over/Under 9 rushing TD for Doug Martin? IFFFFFFFFF Martin can stay healthy I do think he can pull it off. Martin is the real deal.

7.Reggie Wayne Over/Under 90Rec ? I’ll go over 90 but under 100.

8.Andre Johnson Over/Under 1200Yd Rec? Last two years he has finished the year with 1598,1407 yard Rec.  I’m going Under on this one but not by much.

Look for Pt.2 next week as we will cover 8 more Over/Under

Updated: 2014 RB Rankings

So while I was working on my top 25 RB rankings  for the 2014 season I got to thinking…How right are we(Industry Insiders)

and it turns out not really.. This is data from a site we all LOVE.. So much so fans have a blind devotion to the ranks and the talent. On draft day dont be a slave to the rankings.

Over the last 3 years between 6-7 RB that have been pre-ranked in the top 15 at the start of the year was NOT in the top 15 when the smoke settled . Here a look at the top 15 for the 2011,2012 and 2013 season (Not Ranked in the top 15)

2011 RB    Pts  (Pre-Ranked)

1.Ray Rice 300pts (5th)

2.LeSean McCoy 282pts (6th)

3.MJD 264pts (7th)

4.Arian Foster 256pts (4th)

5.Marshawn Lynch 219pts (Not Ranked)

6.Michael Turner 216pts (9th)

7.Ryan Mathews 190pts (Not Ranked)

8.Michael Bush 187pts (Not Ranked)

9.Darren Sproles 185pts (Not Ranked)

10.Steven Jackson 183pts (11th)

11.Frank Gore 180pts (10th)

12.Reggie Bush 180pts (Not Ranked)

13.Adrian Peterson 178pts (1st)

14.Fred Jackson 172pts (Not Ranked)

15.Matt Forte 170pts (14th)

—-2012 RB Pts (Pre-Rank)—-
1.Adrian Peterson 307pts (10th)
2.Doug Martin 263pts (Not Ranked)
3.Arian Foster 262pts (1st)
4. Marshwn Lynch 247pts (6th)
5.Alferd Morris 241pts (Not Ranked)
6.Ray Rice 222pts (2nd)
7.CJ Spiller 212pts (Not Ranked)
8.Jamaal Charles 205pts (9th)
9.Trent Richerson 204pts (14)
10.Frank Gore 203pts (Not Ranked)
11.Steven Ridley 199pts (Not Ranked)
12.Matt Forte 177pts (7th)
13.Chris Johnson 176pts (4th)
14.Reggie Bush 172pts (Not Ranked)
15.Shonn Greene 167pts (Not Ranked)

As you can tell its a crap shoot as to how they finish year by year.
Let take a look at the 2013 season before we get to my rankings .

—–2013 RB. Pts. (Pre-Rank)
1.Jamaal Charles 295pts (6th)
2.LeSean McCoy 262 (10th)
4.Marshawn Lynch 224pts (3rd)
5.Knowshon Moreno220pts (Not Ranked)
6.Eddie Lacy 198pts (Not Ranked)
7.Adrian Peterson 194pt (1st)
8. Chris Johnson 189pt (15th)
9.Demarco Murry 189pt (Not Ranked)
10.Fred Jackson 178pts(Not Ranked)
11.Ryan Mathews 175pts(Not Ranked)
12.Reggie Bush 174pts(Not Ranked)
13.Frank Gore 166pts (14th)
14.Alfred Morris 160pts (9th)
15.Leveon Bell 160pts (Not Ranked)

So my point is the top 15-25 has just as much value and chance to break the top 10 as guys being ranked in the top 10.
I will update my list as the days and the weeks leading up to camp so check back. (Are the ranking from two other sites)
—-2014 RB rankings—-
1.Jamaal Charles (1st,3rd)
2.LeSean McCoy (2nd,2nd)
3.Matt Forte (6th,4th)
4.Marshawn Lynch (4th,5th)
5.Adrian Peterson(3rd,1st)

The more I think about it AP should be ranked 5th,It’s a nice safe spot for him only played 3 full season out of 7, 2011 finished 6th in Pts for RB  1st 2012 in his record breaking year but last year AP finished 7th in RB’S and 6 other WR out scored him in stranded leagues and the 7th Dez Bryant tied him in points.
6.Eddie Lacy (5th,6th)
7.Leveon Bell(8th.11th)
8.Zac Stacy (9th,9th)
9.Doug Martin (10th,7th)
10.Alfred Morris (14th,12th)
11.Montee Ball(7th,13th)
12.Arian Foster(13th,8th)
13.Giovani Bernard(11th,14th)
14.Reggie Bush (15th,15th)
15.Demarco Murry (12th,10th)
16.CJ Spiller (16th,18th)
17.Ryan Mathews (15th,17th)
18.Ben Tate (21st,16th)
19.Andre Ellington (17th,20th)
20.Trent Richarson (21st,32nd)
21.Reshad Jennings (25th,19th)
22.Shane Vereen (22nd,26th)
23.Bishop Sankey (24th,29th)
24.Knowshon Moreno (33rd,31st)
25.Joique Bell (23rd,27th)

So keep a eye on 16-25th I have a feeling one maybe two guys sneak into my top 15.
