Draft Strategy

A Look at Zero RB Results Through 3 Weeks

I am going to take a look at how running backs and wide receivers drafted inside the first five rounds of fantasy football drafts have performed so far. I will look at average performance, performance relative to ADP, positional variance, average games played, and proportion of players who have played in all games so far. I’ll look at these metrics for both PPR and standard scoring.

Performance to Date

Here are the average number of points scored for players drafted in Rounds 1-5:12
  1. For PPR I used ADP data from the Best-Ball App, and setting the cutoff to be one week before MFL10s closed. For standard scoring I used this query.  (back)
  2. I am ignoring the three TEs that fall in this range because they don’t produce a meaningful analysis.  (back)

  1. It helps if you didn't draft Keenan, Watkins, and Cobb. Sigh.

  2. I drafted 2/3 players you mentioned. sigh.

  3. I went Zero-RB in all 5 leagues. In first in 2, 3rd in 1, and outside of playoff position in the other two. Had Kennan Allen in both of htose two. In one my 2-7: Keenan Allen, Brandon Marshall, Donte Moncrief, Doug Baldwin, Danny Woodhead, Jeremy Langford... lol
