We are going to help you get prepared to dominate your upcoming drafts scheduled for this weekend. To do so, we will take a look at the most up-to-date information and ADP possible with a focus on interpreting the latest news and notes to gain an edge in your drafts.
In recent years, the Underdog daily ADP updates have added a tremendous resource to our tool belts. We get almost instantaneous wisdom of the crowd feedback from thousands of sharp and dialed-in fantasy drafters. While the Underdog best ball ADP may not be directly applicable to your non-best ball league, the recent changes in draft stock in reaction to the latest news provide a treasure trove of information you can use to dominate your non-best ball drafts this weekend.
In this week’s article, we will talk about how each of the following news items should impact your draft strategy this weekend:
- Overreaction to Colts Injuries
- Rookies Making a Move
- Contextualizing the Latest Saints News
- Looking for Bargains in Philadelphia
- Raiders Depth Chart Insight
- How to Handle the Dak Prescott Injury Risk
It was all doom and gloom for the Colts for a couple of weeks there. Potentially serious injuries to key players like Carson Wentz and Quentin Nelson led to many believing this offense could be a train wreck. After some initial drops in ADP, the Colts key pieces have continued to slide over the last week:
- Parris Campbell has dropped 12 spots to 162
- T.Y. Hilton has dropped 9 spots to 158
- Michael Pittman Jr has dropped 7 spots to 108
- Jonathan Taylor has dropped 3 spots to 17
The interesting piece is that the news has all been positive of late. The timing of these injuries may end up working out perfectly for the Colts, with nearly all key players now looking to have a great chance to be available by Week 1.
Good vibes all around @Colts.— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) August 11, 2021
Jacob Eason and Sam Ehlinger are competing for the backup role.
Yes, the backup role.
Carson Wentz trending to open the season as the starter with All-Pro G Quenton Nelson on same path after foot surgeries.
The Colts open season vs. Seahawks.
If you are drafting this weekend, buy the dip on these Colts starters. These ADPs should all rise between now and September, so take advantage of your early draft date to roster some Colts at a deep discount.
