Fantasy football rankings & ADP: 2017 Busts from model that outperformed experts warns about Derek Carr, DeAndre Hopkins
Instead of repeating his 14-TD campaign from 2015, Robinson face-planted. He failed to top 900 yards receiving and only scored six times.
The team at SportsLine was all off Robinson last year. Their model, which was originally used to power Fantasy Football projections at the three largest sites, had Robinson finishing well outside the top 10. He ended the season as the WR28.
If you’re drafting this year, you need to check out SportsLine’s cheat sheets. When it came to ranking players last season, their model out-performed human experts by 25 percent when there was a big difference in ranking — four spots for a QB, seven for a RB, and nine for a WR.
Plus, their cheat sheets are available for every major Fantasy Football site, so no matter where you play, you can use them.
One huge bust SportsLine is calling this season: Raiders QB Derek Carr. He has an ADP in the seventh round, but SportsLine’s cheat sheets have him ranked the same as Tyrod Taylor (11th round) and Blake Bortles (12th round). Don’t be fooled by Carr’s hype.
Another player you’ll want to steer clear of: DeAndre Hopkins. Going in the third round, Hopkins has the same season-long projection as two guys you can get much later: Tyreek Hill (sixth round) and Michael Crabtree (fifth). Hopkins will once again be plagued by QB issues, even if Deshaun Watson is under center.
So what busts should you avoid in your fantasy football draft? And what big-name tight end could ruin your season? Visit SportsLine now to get fantasy football cheat sheets from the model that called Allen Robinson’s face-plant last season and find out.
