Season-ending injuries to WRs Jordy Nelson and Kelvin Benjamin have sent shock waves through fantasy drafts. Five Packers and 2 Panthers appear on the late-August risers list, while QB Cam Newton is a faller.
But the most intriguing name here might be Arian Foster. The former 1st-rounder dropped as low as the 7th round but has now climbed back into the early 5th.
Here’s a look at 17 of the biggest ADP movers in the 2nd half of August.
Drew Brees, QB, Saints
Mid-August ADP: 81
Late-August ADP: 76
Brees has climbed mostly because other mid-range QB1s like Cam Newton and Ben Roethlisberger have fallen. Brees is now the 6th QB off the board in average drafts, 1 spot lower than he sits in our QB rankings.
Arian Foster, RB, Texans
Mid-August ADP: 73
Late-August ADP: 49
The Foster Discount was short-lived. With reports that he might be back in late-September, he's now going in the early 5th round. That’s a fair price for a guy who could still give you 12+ games of RB1 production.
Doug Martin, RB, Bucs
Mid-August ADP: 60
Late-August ADP: 51
Martin appeared in the July ADP Report, the Mid-August ADP Report and now the Late-August version. He’s climbed almost 2 full rounds over the past 2 months. He’s fairly priced at his current early-5th-round price tag.
