A major domino in the running back market fell on Monday. Ezekiel Elliott signed with the New England Patriots, providing depth to one of their most shallow positions. The Patriots presumably did not feel comfortable heading into the season with Ty Montgomery and Pierre Strong ...
UnderDog NFL Best Ball Rankings, Strategy and More
The Stokastic NFL Best Ball Rankings Page features UnderDog rankings and projections for best ball on UnderDog fantasy.
NFL Best Ball has a unique strategy to it, as you can’t rely on the replacement value from waivers for byes and injuries, and end-of-the-bench guys can contribute to your score with a big week while you wouldn’t know to start them in season-long. As a result, the rankings reflect increased value for players who contribute steady production that are less exciting picks.
Stokastic’s recommendation is to draft 2-3 QBs, 7-8 WRs, 4-5 RBs and 2-3 TEs, and to draft more players from the positions you’ve allocated less draft capital to. Our projected points added for each player reflect this basic roster construction. The upside column reflects the chance that each player could benefit or be hurt by personnel changes throughout the season (injuries to other players, QB changes, etc.).
The edge in drafting is getting players when they drop below their ranking. Our RDP is our recommended draft position for each player, so it can pay off to let these players drop before grabbing them.
Upload our NFL Best Ball projections to UnderDog: A great way to gain an edge on the competition: upload our best ball rankings directly to UnderDog. Then go to the rankings tab at the top of the page. Download our projections (make sure they are saved in a .CSV format), upload them to UnderDog and then BOOM, the next time you draft, our projections will be loaded into the rankings page.
Once you have the rankings ready to roll be sure to use ADP as a way to judge where to select certain players. For example, if its your turn to pick, and the next two players have ADPs of 15 and 30, take the one with the ADP of 15. There’s a good chance the 30th ranked player will be there when the draft comes back to you.
