11 Undervalued Players

By Matt Schauf 5:08am EDT 8/22/17


The surprising ADPs on these 11 players mean that you can add them to your fantasy football team much later than you should be able to. The list includes some potential key early-round building blocks as well as veteran insurance and later-round upside plays.


Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers

ADP Rank: QB15
DS Rank: QB9

This is the most nonsensical entry on the list. Rivers has finished as low as 15th among fantasy QBs exactly once over the past 9 years. He finished the other 8 seasons among the top 11. That included a #8 ranking in total points and #12 finish in points per game last year, when he played 15+ games without lead WR Keenan Allen.

A still shaky O-line and shallow backfield figures to keep this offense relying heavily on Rivers, who gets Allen back – plus more-experienced versions of TE Hunter Henry and WR Tyrell Williams, and whatever rookie WR Mike Williams can contribute.
