The most undervalued fantasy players at every position

Yesterday we presented the most overvalued players at every position in fantasy to help you know which players to avoid reaching for on draft today.

Today, we’re flipping the script and highlighting the most undervalued players in fantasy to help you find the best deals.

[Editor’s note: This file has been updated to include Giovani Bernard, Frank Gore and Willie Snead.]


Eli Manning, New York Giants
ADP: QB10; PFF Rank: QB7

With an ADP of QB10, fantasy players are only penciling in Manning as a fantasy starter when they should be writing in ink.

Manning finished last season as the No. 7 fantasy quarterback. He ranked in the top seven in all major passing categories last season, including attempts, completions, yards and touchdowns (and, yes, interceptions).

In fact, Manning set career highs in passing yards (4,432), touchdowns (35) and NFL passer rating (93.6), and his interceptions (14) were on the low end of the spectrum for him. It was truly a career year for Manning.

    Nailed it! You can legitemely get most of these guys on your team. Say u grabbed a AJ green rd 1 and Sammy dropped to rd 4:

    Qb: tyrod Taylor
    Rb: Freeman , ingram, Simms
    Wr: green Watkins brown Jackson
    TE: ertz ebron
    This is more realistic for a 10 teamer but still that’s a legit team of just pure value!!

    Great article

    • Paul warned me

      I’m excited to have a lot of these players

        Me too. In particular, my Ryan Mathews, Antonio Gates and John Brown ownership shares are going to be through the roof.

        • DEV00100000

          I’ll be targeting Mathews and Gates for sure. I would want John Brown, but I’m planning on going WR heavy in my first 5 rounds (most-likely 4 WR and 1 RB) and I’m not sure I’ll be able to grab Brown when I start going RB heavy in the next 5 rounds, mixed in with a potential QB or TE. Desean Jackson is another guy that I want, but again, depends on the round and how my team looks up to that point. My league is a two FLEX PPR league, so I believe I’ll want to focus on WR as early as possible and hope to hit on RB’s later.

          Really good list though, I have my eye on a lot of these guys, there is value there.

      Thanks for reading! You can definitely score with an all-undervalued team.
