9 Overvalued Players

By Kevin English 8:08am EDT 8/21/17


Nailing undervalued players is only 1 part of a successful fantasy draft. The other is avoiding the land mines that are overvalued players.

Using ADP as a guide, here are 9 names we’re avoiding at their current prices.

Note: All ADPs and Draft Sharks rankings are PPR.


Allen Robinson, WR, Jaguars

ADP Rank: WR14

DS Rank: WR22

The deep ball provided a key reason for Robinson’s 2015 breakout.

Per Pro Football Focus, he led the league in deep ball (20+ yard) targets. He also paced all WRs with 672 yards on deep balls.

As a result, Robinson’s yards per catch sprung to 17.5.

Last year, of course, produced a different tune. Robinson posted 12.1 YPC and wasn’t a downfield factor alongside an anemic Blake Bortles. The duo connected for a laughable 48.6% catch rate.

Unfortunately, OTAs, training camp and preseason action have provided little hope for a Bortles turnaround. In fact, the 4th-year passer might not even keep his job.

Chad Henne certainly doesn’t look like a savior. He’s a check-down champion with a career yards per attempt of 6.6 — equal to Sam Bradford's mark and even ahead of Alex Smith’s (6.8).

Look for the Jags to try and grind out games with support from their defense. While a healthy Robinson might push for 130+ targets, efficiency remains a major shortcoming.
