Fantasy football top 150 and a closer look at ADP

New, comments

Fantasy Mike is back with an updated top 150 list, as well as a look at some players who he thinks will either under perform or out perform their current ADP (according to the current ESPN list) over the next 2 weeks.

Hello Everyone. Let’s get to it with the fantasy football under performers this week.

As always please hit me up on Twitter or in comments with any questions.

Under performers

Alfred Morris (21) - He has been a huge success, but also walked into the perfect situation two years ago. That has changed with Jay Gruden and his preference to pass catching backs and short passes. I see him as barely a RB2 and would not take him before end of the third round.

Reggie Bush (25) - He has a lot going against him this year, a new OC, the re-signing of Joique Bell, plus the possible emergence of Theo Riddick. There's also Reggie’s fumbling issues. I would not look at him until early fourth round.

Matthew Stafford/Cam Newton (29-30) - I like both of their fantasy prospects, but if I do not get one of the top four QBs, I am waiting until round five or later. It seems these guys will not be there and have no value in the third round.

Larry Fitzgerald (38) - He is living on fantasy reputation alone as he has had a couple less than stellar years, and has been surpassed by the explosive Michael Floyd. This is not a guy you want as your week in and week out WR2.

DeSean Jackson (42) - He was a tad above average before Chip Kelly, and I think he goes back to his 900 yards and five or six touchdown production in the Washington system. He's more of a bye week fill-in or a WR3 now.

Seahawks Defense (51) - They are awesome, but defenses can fluctuate so much that there is no way you draft one at even at the end of a fifth round.

Percy Harvin (55) - He cannot be counted on to stay healthy not to mention a fantasy starter due to the Seahawks offense. Let someone else draft this name brand.

Ray Rice (57) - He was pretty awful last year and misses the first two games of the season this year. I would not take a chance on him in the sixth round. I think it becomes a job share with Pierce.

Sammy Watkins (70) – He has been getting great reports from practice in shorts, but he is a rookie, most of whom struggle. He has a very shaky QB and some receiving competition. Maybe next year.

Knowshon Moreno (89) - He still is not cleared for practice, no teams were interested in him as a free agent, and the best I can see is a job share. Monitor this situation, but I see him more as a later round pick.

Denver Broncos defense (91) - I have no idea why they are this high. Pass and take a shot on a rookie RB.

Matt Prater (93) - No kicker till the end of the draft.
