If You're Drafting this Weekend

Everything you need to know if you are drafting this weekend

We are going to analyze the all of the latest information, ADP, and context you need to prepare for your upcoming drafts. The goal is to help you figure out who to target and when to target them in your drafts this weekend.

It is now under 14 days from the kickoff of Week 1. We are officially in draft season. While the two previous installments of this article (last week and two weeks ago) focused primarily on best ball drafts, this week we will also turn our focus to regular season-long drafts. While the focus of this article is not best ball, we are going to use today’s ADP from Underdog Fantasy’s best ball drafts because it is the most up to date we have access to. If you are drafting this weekend, you need to know where this week’s risers and fallers are likely to go.

We are also going tossup back a little bit and give the bigger picture view of the 2020 fantasy draft board for those who are just tuning in now and have not been researching for weeks. As such, the format will be a bit different.

We will go round-by-round through the early rounds highlighting all of the high impact player news you need to know. The focus will be on the biggest decisions you will face in each round.

The first round

1.01 to 1.04

Almost all 2020 draft start with Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley, Ezekiel Elliott, and Alvin Kamara as the top four. Typically, in that exact order. This is the same top four we had last year. When you take into account these four players’ proven talent, offensive roles, health histories, and the positional scarcity of the running back position, each of these four backs has everything going for them. Do not overthink it. If you are lucky enough to land a top-four pick, lock in one of these proven, high-ceiling, high-floor RB1s.

After 1.04 things get interesting

The two elite wide receivers
