    For many fantasy football
    players ,
    average draft position, or ADP, give a good barometer of when certain players
    may be picked — a useful planning tool for draft day.But ADP should be treated
    as a loose, not rigid, guide to what to fully expect. Every draft is different
    and ADP doesn’t always fully reflect a player’s true value, as many drafters in
    the mainstream are not as fully informed as more savvy players. Here are some
    players who are being overvalued or undervalued based on their current ADP as
    compiled by FantasyPros in point-per-reception leagues.OVERDRAFTEDJerick
    McKinnon, RB, San Francisco (25th overall): There are very high expectations for
    McKinnon in a 49ers offense that is stirring a lot of buzz. While he is
    versatile and fast, McKinnon may not be built for heavy featured-back duty at
    5-9, 205. He already has a knee injury that will cost him the rest of the
    preseason, and when Matt Breida returns from a shoulder injury, he may cut into
    McKinnon’s workload, too. Picking McKinnon early in the third round is not
    advised, even if you totally miss out on acquiring him.Rex Burkhead, RB, New
    England (71): Experienced fantasy players know you can never fully trust a New
    England running back. Word recently came out that Burkhead is trying to play
    through a minor tear in his knee. Health and workload concerns lead to regular
    concerns and no
    upside Chuma Edoga
    , so avoid Burkhead this season.Demaryius Thomas, WR, Denver (41):
    The widespread assumption is that Case Keenum is going to revive the Denver
    passing game and that Thomas’ numbers will rebound accordingly. But Keenum must
    prove he is no one-year wonder who may revert to looking like a journeyman after
    leaving Minnesota. The Broncos may also be concerned that Thomas’ best days are
    behind him, as they drafted Courtland Sutton as their possible next big
    playmaker.Brandin Cooks, WR, Los Angeles Rams (43): He was a minor
    disappointment last season in New England, as Cooks only caught 65 balls. Now he
    is with the Rams, where Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods are already established WR
    targets, plus Todd Gurley gets a lot of looks, as well. Cooks will still be
    relevant, but could also be very inconsistent and will be too frustrating for a
    guy with a fourth-round price tag.Jordan Reed, TE, Washington (87): Fantasy
    players who still get lured in by Reed should simply stop chasing his 2015
    season and the remaining shreds of it from 2016.Reed played in only six games
    last season, and has missed 16 games over the past three years. That’s a full
    NFL season, of course. He is much too risky to be the ninth tight end off the
    board.Drew Brees,
    QB ,
    New Orleans (63): His ADP is based more on reputation than recent trends that
    may continue going forward. Last season, the Saints morphed into a team with
    outstanding RB play and a good defense. Brees no longer had to constantly fling
    the ball all over the yard as in the past, and look for the same approach in
    2018. You’re not going to see 4,800 yards or 31-plus TDs again.UNDERDRAFTEDTarik
    Cohen, RB, Chicago (82): He is going to be one of the true breakout performers
    of the 2018 season in PPR formats. New head coach Matt Nagy is going to unleash
    the explosive all-around talent of Cohen in an improving Bears offense. Cohen is
    a fine value selection who will truly emerge as an upside performer this
    year.Peyton Barber, RB, Tampa Bay (134): Obviously, most fantasy owners do not
    buy into Barber as the team’s current starter and expect rookie Ronald Jones to
    quickly emerge and soar past him. But Barber could hold onto the job for a
    while, as Jones is having trouble adjusting to the pro game. Barber can be a
    good flex player for an extensive stretch to open the season.Robby Anderson, WR,
    New York Jets (95): Last year, Anderson averaged nearly 15 yards a catch and
    scored seven times, despite the Jets dealing with QB issues. This season, the
    quarterback position should have more stability, so you should expect Anderson
    to continue his emergence as an exciting playmaker. He’ll go over
    1 Alexander
    Mattison Jersey
    ,000 yards this time.Calvin Ridley, WR, Atlanta (123):
    There should be more optimism surrounding what may be the best WR in this year’s
    rookie class. Ridley is going to be an electric complement to Julio Jones; he’s
    the No. 2 WR the Falcons have been seeking. If you nab Ridley in the
    double-digit rounds, you are really going to enjoy the returns when he has some
    impressive outings this year.Ricky Seals-Jones, TE, Arizona (226): He is going
    near the end of drafts, but Seals-Jones could vie for top 10 fantasy tight end
    status this season. He is a big, fluid target who will become a prime threat for
    Arizona near the goal line. RSJ flashed some brief promise last season and
    should become a quality fantasy starter in his second pro season.Philip Rivers,
    QB, Los Angeles Chargers (108): He is the 15th QB off the board on average, and
    never seems to get the fantasy respect he deserves. Rivers was the eighth most
    productive QB in fantasy last season, and has been a top 10 QB in five of the
    past six seasons. If you wait on a QB, as is often recommended, you can get
    Rivers in the double-digit rounds and you’ll strut, not walk, away from your
    draft table. FLORHAM
    PARK ,
    N.J. (AP)The New York Jets took care of their biggest need in the first round,
    drafting USC quarterback Sam Darnold with the No. 3 overall pick.They head into
    Day 2 with just one selection – a third-rounder – on Friday after trading their
    two second-rounders to Indianapolis last month as part of a deal to move up
    three spots from No. 6.The Jets will likely focus on adding either a pass rusher
    or depth on the defensive or offensive lines with the 72nd overall pick. Outside
    linebackers Jeff Holland of Auburn, Ogbonnia Okoronkwo of Oklahoma and
    Mississippi’s Marquis Haynes could be targets for New York.A few days before the
    draft, general manager Mike Maccagnan wouldn’t rule out trading to add more
    selections.The Jets were very active in free agency this winter, signing 16
    players, including cornerback Trumaine Johnson, running back Isaiah Crowell,
    linebacker Avery Williamson and wide receiver Terrelle Pryor (one year, $4.5
    million). They also re-signed seven of their unrestricted free agents.New York
    still has plenty of holes to fill on the roster, but the largest was taken care
    of with the selection of Darnold. After Cleveland took Oklahoma quarterback
    Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 pick and the Giants selected Penn State running
    back Saquon Barkley, the Jets were in position to take the quarterback who had
    been in the running to go first in the last several months leading up to the
