Redraft Prep Part 1: Rounds 1 – 5 (Podcast)
Moving into the third week of the preseason, it’s time to take another look at the latest trends for values, sleepers, busts as are currently going in draft results. For the first time in our podcast’s history, we have expert writer Matt De Lima on as he breakdown some of the players to target and to avoid in the first five rounds of your draft, as the first of a two-part podcast show. As usual, I have this podcast broken down into sections for each player, and you can listen to those quick breakdowns over at the fantasy philosophers’ home page.
In the second half of our podcast show, Matt has his top five IDP rankings for defensive linemen, linebackers and defensive backs. For part two, just click on the link below.
Please Note – Listen to the start of the podcast as Matt clarifies what he means by Bust, Sleeper and Value for the players listed below. Next to each player, I have their recent ADP value for standard and PPR leagues as listed on Fantasy Football Calculator to give you an idea of where these players are landing in mock draft results.
