My Favorite Targets in Each Round: August Edition Part 2 – Filling Out a $3 Million Squad

Earlier in the offseason I looked at my favorite targets in Best Ball Mania IV. But a lot has changed since then. Now that we’re in the home stretch of best ball drafting season, let’s look again at some of the top targets in each 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. In the previous installment I looked at some of my favorite targets in the first half of the draft. Let’s continue by looking at how we can complement our early picks with some favorite late-round selections.

I’ve set players’ names in green if they’ve become a higher priority (i.e., new additions to the honorable mentions), become my favorite pick in a round as a result of ADP moves or other considerations, or if their cost has risen and they remain a priority pick. I’ve set players’ names in red if they’ve either become a lower priority in their round (i.e., moving from being the top pick to an honorable mention) or if their cost has dropped without becoming a higher priority at the new ADP.

Current ADP (as of August 14)

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 final nine rounds from the last week of BBM4 drafts.

Stuck in a Bad-Draft-Slot Rut? Mix Things Up and Get Your Guys with the All-Reach Team

On some podcast episodes, Shawn has noted — when lamenting the preponderance of late picks in his Best Ball Mania 5 portfolio — that if you don’t get a top-10 pick, you basically don’t have access to any first-round values. (Of course, that assumes a rational drafter takes Garrett Wilson ahead of ADP, leaving you with A.J. Brown as an ADP — but not rankings…...

Correlation, Causation, Humility-Based Drafting, and the Importance of a Top-10 QB: How the Falcons Talked Themselves Into Michael Penix and How You Can Profit

While the Falcons’ selection of Michael Penix at No. 8 overall was a head scratcher — especially after the team signed Kirk Cousins — we can at least take solace in the fact that some explanation for the pick has since been made public. Here’s Albert Breer explaining how head coach Raheem Morris and general manager Terry Fontenot pitched owner Arthur Blank on the notion…...
