2012 ADP: PPR Running Backs Trends

Photo By: Icon SMI We have 42 running backs going through nine rounds of recent ADP trends for PPR leagues. While no one can deny the top tiers of the 2012 running back class are the weakest we've seen, maybe ever, the depth at this position overall is actually respectable. Perhaps that shouldn't surprises us; not only are teams using RBBCs with regularity, but we have a decent group of veteran running back ...

2012 ADP: PPR Tight End Trends

Photo By: Jeff Hanisch / US PRESSWIRE While I'm a little surprised to see Aaron Hernandez going as the 6th tight end off the board in PPR league trends, but he is lumped closely with Vernon Davis and Jermichael Finley in the 6th round of ten team leagues. Unless you plan to snag Jimmy Graham or Gronkowski, it is clear that respectable starting value can be had around the fifth through seventh rounds. This a ...

Photo By: Icon SMI With so much depth at the receiver position it's time to run away from secure options like Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Johnson, Roddy White and so on, unless you're absolutely sold they will have a terrific season. It's nice to feel like you have a WR1 in the bag and take some of the names mentioned above in the second and third round, but your competition will be drafting key running backs a ...

2012 RB Busts / Overvalued

Photo By: Bob Donnan / US PRESSWIRE Some big names headline my 2012 running back busts or overvalued options for draft day.
