FFPC/FPC Average Draft Position
By Clayton Gray
August 17th, 2012

We've always had average draft position, but as everyone knows, league set-up can make a big difference in positional placement. The Fantasy Football Players Championship is rapidly becoming the most popular high-stakes and the Footballguys Players Championship is consuming the online fantasy community. These leagues share a fairly unique scoring rule that awards 1.5 points per reception to tight ends (while running backs and wide receivers only get a single point per catch). Obviously, this changes the importance of tight ends on draft day. However, it's difficult to find updated draft results until it's too late. So we found a bit of a work-around.

First, we took the results from a handful of online FPC drafts that have been held this offseason. Next, we determined the average number of players taken each round. This information is in the table below.

If the table isn't clear, here are a couple of examples:

  • By the end of Round 1, there were an average of 1 QB, 7 RBs, 2WRs, and 2 TEs taken in the sampled drafts.
  • By the end of Round 2, there were an average of 3 QBs, 13 RBs, 5 WRs, and 3 TEs taken in the sampled drafts.
  • Etc.
  • Then we recorded the order of the positions taken in each draft and determined the ADP of each position. Finally, we took a little liberty and used the order of the players listed in our 2012 PPR ADP to create a more useful table, which is below.

    If the table isn't clear, here are a couple of examples:

  • In the sampled drafts, Def01 (the first defense) was picked (on average) at the 132.2 spot. In our ADP, the 49ers defense is (on average) the first defense off the board. Combining these two facts gives the San Francisco 49ers an ADP of 132.2 for FFPC/FPC drafts.

  • In the sampled drafts, Def02 was picked (on average) at the 154.6 spot. In our ADP, the Steelers defense is (on average) the second defense off the board. Combining these two facts gives the Pittsburgh Steelers an ADP of 154.6 for FFPC/FPC drafts.
  • Etc.
  • Note that we are not using the actual player ADP from these sampled drafts for one reason - things change. In drafts that occurred before Ryan Mathews (for example) was injured, Mathews was obviously picked a lot higher than he was in drafts that occurred after the injury. Normally, that injury (and the litany of other injuries that always occur in the preseason) would render the data from those early drafts almost useless. Just observing the order of positions, however, allows us to keep using those early drafts.
