Best Ball Mania IV is in full swing, and player ADPs are becoming more rigid every day as drafters anchor to the number next to a player’s name. This situation gives savvy drafters an advantage though, as it makes it much easier to plan a draft round-by-round.

Using our Underdog ADP tool — now with the ability to show an ADP Draft Grid — we can find our favorite targets in every round and adjust our early-round structure accordingly. With this in mind, here are a few of my favorite targets in the first half of fantasy drafts so far. As the offseason goes on, these are likely to change, and I will update this article periodically to reflect that.

Current ADP (as of May 29)

My favorite way to get a quick view of ADP and to get a sense of a player’s general range is to use the ADP Draft Grid view. This makes it easy to see the rounds in which I need to target my favorite players and to formulate a draft plan before the first pick is even made. Here’s a look at the first nine rounds from the last week of BBM4 drafts.
