For those who have drafted multiple best ball teams on Underdog, the app below will help you explore your exposure to gain insight into how much draft value equity you have in a built-in comparison to current ADP, your exposure trends, your weighted leverage versus the field, and your top stacks. Follow the directions below to download your exposure from Underdog in a .csv file, upload it to the app, and then explore.
Here is a quick breakdown of each of the tabs that will be generated from your Exposure Report, along with some screenshots from my own.

This report calculates the players for whom you have the most positive and negative ADP equity. For example, if you have drafted Player A 10 times at an average pick of 150 and his current ADP is up to 110, you would have a positive ADP Value of 400 (40 spots of equity multiplied by 10 picks) on that player. So the number is a combination of your average draft spot of the player and the total number of times you selected him. Here is an example of my ADP Value report:
As you can see, I built up some positive equity on Joshua Palmer and Allen Lazard due to drafting them early in the summer before their ADPs rose. On the other hand, I had some early David Bell shares from when he was going much earlier than he is currently.
Please note that a negative ADP value is not always bad. Pat Freiermuth is the player with my highest overall exposure, and I have been fine drafting him a round or so ahead of his ADP to lock him in all summer. That leads to negative draft equity but is not necessarily bad if you believe in the player.
This is a fun visualization of which players you are drafting more often now than earlier in the draft season (and vice versa). For example, from my report, these are the players who I am warming up to of late and have been drafting more often:
On the other hand, here are some players who I was drafting more regularly early in the summer but less often of late:
