Draft Strategy

14 Undervalued Players

By Kevin English 9:08am EDT 8/17/20


Fantasy football drafting, at its core, is about buying players for less than they’re actually worth. In other words, you win your fantasy draft by picking undervalued players.

Before we get to this year's group, keep in mind that undervalued players are marked by a $ on the MVP Board.

Also note: ADP is taken from recent Best Ball 10 drafts.


Robert Woods, WR, Rams

ADP: WR18

DS Rank: WR7

Woods has never been known for a high TD rate. But his 2 TDs from 2019 — on a career-high 90 catches — are quite fluky. Since the 1970 merger, only 3 other WRs have scored 2 or fewer times on 90+ grabs.

So that number will rise in 2020. Awesome.

In terms of volume, Woods’ outlook appears strong. He’s handled 130 and 139 targets over the past 2 years. Now, Brandin Cooks (and his 6.3 targets per game) are out. Don’t expect Josh Reynolds and rookie Van Jefferson to completely fill the void.

Woods also provides sneaky rushing value. His 36 carries, 272 rushing yards and 2 TDs over the past 2 seasons are all top 3 marks among WRs.

Returning the same QB and HC, Woods — who's regularly available in the 5th round of fantasy drafts — is 1 of our favorite WR targets.
