Risers & Fallers

Mid-August ADP Risers and Fallers

By Jared Smola 8:08am EDT 8/18/16

With more drafts going off and more news flying in, we’re seeing bigger swings in ADP now than we were back in July. Keeping up with these changes is critical to leaving your draft with the best team possible.

As usual, we’re looking at MFL10 data. ADP varies by league size and type, but not wildly. These numbers are a good guide as we head into peak drafting season.

(NOTE: Check out how these ADP changes might impact your draft by practicing on the brand new, FREE Mock Draft Trainer.)


Risers

Latavius Murray, RB, Raiders

Early-August ADP: 52

Mid-August ADP: 48

Word out of Oakland is Murray is enjoying a strong training camp. He’ll enter the season as the clear lead back but will have DeAndre Washington lurking.


Keith Marshall, RB, Redskins

Early-August ADP: 232

Mid-August ADP: 216

The “2-headed monster” comment from GM Scot McCoughlan caused Marshall’s ADP to spike. McCoughlan pumped up Matt Jones just a day later, though, and insider Mike Jones recently predicted that Marshall won’t even make Washington’s 53-man roster.


Allen Robinson, WR, Jaguars

Early-August ADP: 12

Mid-August ADP: 9

A 3-spot move this early in the draft is big. Robinson is now neck and neck with Dez Bryant as the 6th WR off the board. He’s hopped over RBs Ezekiel Elliott and Lamar Miller in overall ADP.


Fallers

Matt Forte, RB, Jets

Early-August ADP: 43

Mid-August ADP: 49

The 30-year-old missed the first 2 weeks of training camp and is just now easing back into action. He expects to be ready for the start of the season but needs to get healthy to fend off Bilal Powell. Forte is a risk/reward pick at his current early-5th-round ADP.


Eric Ebron, TE, Lions

Early-August ADP: 113

Mid-August ADP: 124

His ankle injury has given us almost a 1-round discount. Ebron is tentatively expected to be ready for Week 1. And even if he’s not, it’s easy to find a replacement for a game or 2.
