Draft Strategy

9 Undervalued Players

By Kevin English 7:08am EDT 8/12/19

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.

Now, let’s dive in.

Note: ADP is taken from recent Draft.com best ball drafts.


Carson Wentz, QB, Eagles

DS Rank: QB4

ADP: QB8

From all accounts, Wentz has flourished this summer. He’s healthy. He’s entering year 4 in HC Doug Pederson’s system. And he’s surrounded by the best — and deepest — pass-catching corps of his career.

LT Jason Peters’ health bares watching as he enters his age-37 season. But Philly added insurance with Round 1 LT Andre Dillard, who's "turned a corner" over the past 2 weeks, per team insider Adam Caplan. Rock solid across the O-line, Wentz won’t carry the protection issues following, say, Deshaun Watson.

With a fine early-season schedule of Washington, Atlanta, Detroit, Green Bay and the Jets — 3 of which are at home — Wentz should start fast.
