Fantasy Football draft season is officially upon us and most people are scouring the internet trying to figure out who to draft. It is often a mad scramble the day before the draft day to decide who to draft and that is sometimes chaotic. Today we are going to give everyone some underrated players that could be key in their draft.
Average Draft Position, also known as ADP, is extremely important in fantasy drafts. Often times players are drafted too high and end up being busts in fantasy. If you can find players that are underrated they are going to help you win leagues. It happens every year and every year people wonder how they can get to the point the following year.
Aaron Jones, Packers
In the second round, you are either going to be looking at a running back or a wide receiver. Guys like Aaron Jones are the backs that I would be looking at because of their potential upside despite competition. AJ Dillon is obviously a threat, but I would expect Jones to get the majority of the touches and the goal line work. Green Bay is transitioning and the more run-heavy offense is definitely in the cards. That paired with a high touchdown potential makes me excited for what Jones can potentially offer. Rodgers has already gone to the media and flamed his young receivers. What makes you think they are going to consistently air the ball out in Green Bay? This could potentially be a much more run-heavy team and I like Jones to fly past his original draft position.
DJ Moore, Panthers
Panthers are upgrading their QB situation by starting Baker Mayfield this year. DJ Moore definitely has the most to gain from this situation. The star receiver should be expecting more targets as it is no mystery that Robby Anderson has gotten off to a rougher start with QB Baker Mayfield after his offseason comments. Moore is already a top receiver and with what should be a better QB I would suspect a better year.
Gabriel Davis, Bills
Gabriel Davis is a underrated receiver that has the potential to be a great option in your fantasy lineup. Davis is projected to increase his value from last year, but he still looks underrated from his ADP. This is a mid round selection, but could end up stepping up and being a second tier receiver this year. Josh Allen gives the Bills plenty of offense and this just makes sense.
Breece Hall, Jets
I wouldn’t call this pick a sleeper, but Hall has the potential to be great. If you didn’t see him at Iowa State, you missed out on some great football. Hall has the potential to have a great year especially with a young quarterback in Zach Wilson trying to get situated in front of him. Hall could end up carrying most the offense which is an interesting proposition from a fantasy standpoint. If Hall slides in your draft to a 4th or late third round pick, that will be an underrated pick considering his potential upside.
