2019 DRAFT ADP Best Ball July Analysis

2021 Fantasy Football Week 11 IDP Waiver Wire

Welcome back! It's been about two months since we first looked at the 2019 average draft position (ADP) over at DRAFT. Here we will give update it in this 2019 DRAFT ADP Best Ball July Analysis. This is a good source of information whether you play best ball, season-long, or DFS as it gives you an outline of what people are drafting with something on the line.

Some players have shot up draft boards, and some have gone in the other direction due to one reason or another. Let's take a dive in to see how players have placed in throughout the dog days as summer! Training camp has started, and position battles will start to take form.

The time for true value is closing! Training camp is a whole new season for draft movement, and I look forward to seeing how it shapes up.

The previous ADP's in reference were recorded 5/31/2019

Upward Running Backs

Darrell Henderson (ADP 73.6, Movement +59.5)

Henderson is being taken as if it's a proven fact he will be the Rams starting running back for considerable games. The 7th round, and often earlier, is CRAZY!!

Todd Gurley (18.4) is still alive and well, and for all we know not injured. The knee situation is serious, yes, but we are focused on 2019. Remember, in a tournament you need to get to the playoffs first!

Peyton Barber (120, +49.5) / Ronald Jones (96.8, +11.5)

Ronald Jones and Peyton Barber keep moving on up as they are the only two options in the Bucs backfield, making them viable best ball players.

I've been a Ronald Jones fan since the beginning of the summer, and his ADP continues to creep up. Jones is the draftee with higher upside, Barber has shown production at points last year.

Expect these to drop if Tampa decides they need an upgrade, via a disgruntled back in Los Angeles.

David Montgomery (45.1, +35.2)

David Montgomery is another rookie back who has skyrocketed. However, he is currently being drafted as a workhorse, where he'll still have to deal with Tarik Cohen and Mike Davis for touches. The price is a bit high for my liking for not a sure thing.

Wide Receivers Moving On Up

Christian Kirk, Arizona Cardinals (69.3, +26.1)

Christian Kirk has been the biggest, most relevant jump at WR not named Tyreke Hill. At a current ADP of 69.3, that puts him ahead of guys like Will Fuller (77.3), Marvin Jones (84.8), Sterling Shepard (87.8), and Corey Davis (89.6).

This is a two-round jump from our last article May 31. The hype train is rolling in Arizona, and the people seem to believe Kirk will reap the most benefits. He would appear to be the WR1 in Arizona, but they still have that Larry Fitzgerald (101.8) lad and a poor offensive line. I am passing on him in the sixth round very easily.

DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles (105.5, +15.1)

DeSean is currently being drafted in the 9th round, up a round from the beginning of the summer. I think he's in for some monster games this year, and the price is very fair that I'm still interested every time.

You won't see me taking Jackson in season long, but he is the ultimate best ball WR. I got burned last year with Mike Wallace; conceptually it is the same just a bit more pricy. The Eagles will score points and you won't know from who or when.

Robby Anderson, New York Jets (62.2, +12.8)

Robby Anderson is being drafted in the early sixth round, as the top WR for second-year QB Sam Darnold. Anderson has produced in the past, but is he ready to do it for a 16 game season on a team that should struggle?

LeVeon Bell certainly opens the field for him, and he is essentially a DeSean type with a larger target share. I like Anderson in the 6th round.

Biggest Sliding WRs

Emmanuel Sanders, Denver Broncos (158.1, -54)

Apparently, there is a chance that Emmanuel Sanders is available Week 1. At his current ADP of 158.1, it doesn't matter if he misses the first six games. You are taking him as your WR5+, and you are betting he has a full recovery to produce a few weeks.

Is that a good bet is another question, and he could very well give you nothing. Sanders is not somebody I personally want to bet against.

Devin Funchess, Carolina Panthers (128.2, -28.9)

Devin Funchess has dropped over two rounds these past two months, perhaps as a correction to his place at the beginning of the Best Ball tournament.

He's a pretty boring selection with a track record of letting you down, but he's part of a good offense with a great quarterback.

It seems like a fair price to pay for the ups and downs, with potential to pay off a 10th round pick as the #3/4 option in the passing game. The unknown is factored in.

DK Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks (127, -24.3)

I think DK Metcalf's ADP is more of a market correction. He's a rookie WR in a run-first system, and the 13th round is pretty fair. The Seahawks also have Tyler Lockett (49.6) and David Moore (190.6). This still might be a bit too high and have seen people passing on him to secure their guys at the moment.

I am excited to see how training camp shakes all of this up!! Ready for the craziness. Football is officially BACK!!
