Yahoo Rankings - Find the values!

Postby Crippler » Sat Jul 07, 2007 2:30 pm

We are having our draft tomorrow afternoon using Yahoo, and I was wondering if I can take advantage of the pre-ranking on the site. A few managers are autodrafting, and a few others may rely on the Yahoo ranks very heavily. That being said, who can I take advantage of as being undervalued on the Yahoo rankings list? So far, I've spotted McGahee, Boldin, Plaxico, Driver as a few possibilities.

I'm really just looking for a few players who are ranked too low, so that I can take advantage and get them later than I should be able to. It's a 10 person league and I drew the #3 slot.

Also, what players appear to be over-valued on this list? I'm also looking for a few names to stay away from so that I dont reach.

I cant figure out a way to easily post the list, but I will type out the first 100 players, not including defenses.

I would suggest looking at the player rankings from here and footballguys, and looking for players high on their list, but low on Yahoo's. I think Driver is a guy you can pick up in the late 4th, early 5th round.
I would suggest you use this draft style:
Round 1: RB
Round 2: WR
Round 3: WR
Round 4:RB
Round 5: WR (Driver)

You should be able to set up a good RB and WR core that way. That's what I would do, but there may be a better strategy to it.

I took a look at the rankings on this site, but I don't think they are as solid as they have been in years past (probably because there were only 4 people doing the rankings this time around). I was looking for a few extra opinions, possibly from people who have done a Yahoo draft and have noticed a mis-ranking here or there.

Thank you for the reply!

Yeah, Westbrook is a real undervalued RB. Don't be surprised if you see him in the second round available to draft, especially in the 5 or 6 spot.
