A fantasy draft is all about obtaining the most value with each selection. There is value available throughout a draft, and grabbing it is one of the most important keys to a successful fantasy team. In an attempt to point out this value, we asked our staff to look through the top 150 players and identify players that should outperform their draft position.

Donte Moncrief, Indianapolis
Alexander: Andrew Luck's extended absence has apparently made people forget Donte Moncrief was on his way to a breakout last year. The soon-to-be 23-year-old averaged 14 PPR fantasy points per game in Luck's seven starts. All told, he turned in one of the better statistical seasons in the last 15 years for a 22-year-old wide receiver. With Andre Johnson and Coby Fleener leaving behind a combined 161 targets, Moncrief will have every opportunity to take a huge step forward in his third season. Despite a recent bump in his ADP, he's still being drafted behind at least eight wide receivers he shouldn't be.
Bloom: Moncrief should get a huge target load as the #2 wide receiver in a pass-happy offense, and he's only turning 23 heading into his third year. He has a high ceiling, especially if Dwayne Allen continues his injury-prone ways and leaves Moncrief as the clear #1 target in the red zone. He is going as high as the fourth round, and even late third in "expert' drafts, so feel lucky if you get Moncrief in the sixth or seventh round.
