Two of my favorite things are Best Ball and Underdog Fantasy, and each week this offseason I want to share with you my insights on both. With Underdog Fantasy releasing the Best Ball Mania III tournament a couple of weeks ago, excitement has been growing each day. Each week I want to break down what has changed from the previous week when it comes to NFL news, Best Ball news, and the top ADP Risers and Fallers on Underdog. It's useful to compare Best Ball to the stock market and day trading stocks, but instead of stocks we are looking at NFL players and more specifically those players' Average Draft Position (ADP). We are constantly wanting to find those players who are of value in our drafts and avoid some of the players who might be overvalued.
Each week I will look at the Underdog ADP tool on 4for4.com that was created by Sam Hoppen to examine the top 10 risers and the top 10 fallers at ADP. These shifts in ADP are often driven by the news we have coming in that week and what some of the major touts in the industry might be saying about said players.
Top 10 ADP Risers
|Rank||Player||Position||Team||June 27 ADP||ADP Change|
|4||Mark Ingram II||RB||NO||205.2||6.8|
***These ten ADP risers are based on the dates 06/20/2022-06/27/22***
The biggest news of the week is the retirement of Rob Gronkowski and it is affecting a few players from Tampa Bay as we see the biggest ADP riser in Cameron Brate who shot up 37.4 spots. Russell Gage also joined teammate Brate in seeing a spot in the top-10 risers this week. Both players belong here as they will continue to rise and there would be no surprise if they ended up on this list next week as well. We have three running backs on this risers list this week with Marlon Mack, Mark Ingram II, and Gus Edwards. All three come with a lot of question marks as Mack, and Edwards are battling back from injuries and Ingram is seeing a bump based on speculation that teammate Alvin Kamara will be suspended.
Austin Hooper is getting some positive blurbs that he is one of Ryan Tannehill's favorite targets so far this offseason. He makes for a solid late-round option to pair up with Tannehill if you are looking to stack or if you just want to have a decent option as your third tight end option. Parris Campbell continues to rise as the weeks go by and he is on this list once again as we are seeing nothing but positive news on his health and connection with Matt Ryan. A couple of younger wide receivers in Isaiah McKenzie and Joshua Palmer are rising later in drafts and they both make some sense as they are tied to the likes of Josh Allen and Justin Herbert. If you want to bet on either the Bills or the Chargers these are two guys that you can pick up much later and have spike week potential which is what you will want in these large tournaments on Underdog. Mac Jones is the last in the top ten for this week, and it makes a lot of sense as he is a guy worth betting on after a strong rookie season at such a steep ADP discount currently.
