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 and identify players that should outperform their draft position.
Player Receiving 9 Votes
Kirk Cousins, Minnesota
James Brimacombe: Cousins is coming off his best season statistically and has four straight seasons as a top ten quarterback as he has finished as the 9th, 5th, 5th, and 9th at the position over those years. It is hard to argue with the talent that is surrounding him in the offense with arguably the best duo at wide receiver with Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. Cousins is the best value at ADP right now in fantasy drafts.
Drew Davenport: The concerns about how Minnesota's offense will look are certainly justified. It appears from a small sample size late last season that new Offensive Coordinator Kevin Stefanski will run the football, and this appears to be the order from Head Coach Mike Zimmer as well. But even a sizable drop in pass attempts can't account for his current ADP. He still plays with two immensely talented wide receivers, an excellent red zone tight end, and his teams will be in most games because of a good defense. His current ADP is an overreaction.
David Dodds: Despite playing for a new team in 2018, Kirk Cousins set career highs in completion percentage (70.1) and passing touchdowns (30). His last four years have all logged 4,000+ passing yards while playing every game. He is among the safest players at any position to draft at or near their current ADP.
