After looking at undervalued players based on early Average Draft Position (ADP), I now look at some guys I feel are being overvalued. Remember, just because I think someone is being overvalued it doesn’t mean I don’t like that player. It simply means I feel he’s being drafted too high for one reason or another. I’m a stickler when it comes to value. In that aspect I believe fantasy drafts are similar to the NFL Draft. So here are some players I see being overvalued as we head into June.

Now that I’m finished with my rankings for a while I thought I would delve into some ADP stuff and look at players I feel are being undervalued and overvalued. The value of a particular player can mean different things to different people. I may think there ‘s a lot of value in Philip Rivers being drafted in Round 7, while another person views Rivers in decline and doesn’t want anything to do with him. Based on my rankings and views of players, here are some guys I feel are being undervalued based on their current ADP in early mock drafts. Tomorrow I’ll look at the overvalued players.

I finish my updated position rankings with quarterbacks. There’s some turnover at the top, as a young gun has broken through in my rankings and ended the two-month stranglehold enjoyed by the Big 3. Overall the quarterback position seems to be settling in with most of the movement coming in the 15-30 range. Here now is a look at my Top 40 fantasy quarterback for 2012.

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. I figured it would be a good time to take another look at receivers given Hakeem Nicks‘ latest injury. I didn’t downgrade Nicks much in these rankings but he’s starting to pile up the injuries and that’s concerning from a fantasy perspective. The biggest winner is Rueben Randle. The talented rookie will benefit from getting a majority of first-team reps with Nicks expected to miss all of training camp.

There’s a lot of movement as usual with receivers but I’m starting to settle on my Top 20. I still love that 10-25 range. There’s loads of talent in that area, so if you pass on a receiver with your first two picks, there will be plenty of potential studs left on the board. Here now are my Top 100 fantasy receivers.

The tight end position had a bit of a shakeup when Kellen Winslow was traded to Seattle and the Buccaneers then signed Dallas Clark. I’ve set the over/under for Clark going on Injured Reserve at Week 4. Considering I like the under, that tells you how much worth I think Clark has to fantasy owners in 2012. I increased my tight end rankings from 30 to 40 this time around. I probably won’t go any higher than Top 40 with tight ends.

Just one quick update for the site. I make sure to post at least once a day but I’ll be away this weekend doing family stuff, so I won’t have anything new up until late Sunday night. Next week I’ll be analyzing the latest ADP data. Enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend everyone. That’s right it’s Memorial Day. We’re just two months away from preseason football. Then all will be right with the world once again.

I try not to look at my rankings too much after positing because every time I do I want to update them. Well, I got caught looking at my running back rankings and the next thing you know I’m moving guys around again. The top of my rankings remain unchanged but there’s some movement after the first eleven. I’ll be hitting tight ends on Friday but for now here’s my Top 75 fantasy running backs.

I created this blog two months ago, so a lot of my time has been spent evaluating rookies because we were right in the middle of the NFL Draft. Since the draft ended a month ago, the rookie class has been discussed to the point where it’s almost becoming counterproductive. I mean how many different ways can I tell you I like Ronnie Hillman and don’t like Lamar Miller?

I thought now would be a good time to put the rookies on the back-burner for a while and look at second-year players. Those guys are always interesting because while people tend to fall in love with rookies and drive up their ADP, some second year players can get lost in the shuffle. There are a lot of guys entering their second season that I view as undervalued right now. Here’s a look at the current Average Draft Position of second-year players, along with who’s being undervalued and overvalued.
