2022's Worst ADPs and Rankings On Sleeper, NFL, CBS, Yahoo, and ESPN Fantasy

Aug 23rd 2022

Hayden Winks

Best ball is the greatest way to get prepared for your home league. On Underdog Fantasy, we update our average draft position (ADP) every day using the last 48 hours of paid drafts. That means drafters are actually trying, which makes their opinions more predictive than the ADPs or rankings from people without money on the line or from sources that don't update their information daily.

Today, I'll compare Underdog Fantasy's ADPs with the current default rankings on the various re-draft platforms, so you know the best and worst values when you're drafting against your friends, family, co-workers, or neighbors. Give them hell in your draft, and then show them best ball. You will make some $$$ if you get your friends to sign up with your Underdog Fantasy referral that can be found in your account tab. DO IT!

CBS Fantasy
