2011 Fantasy Football Average Draft Position-Update

A lot can change in a week, right? Well, the overall top 10 remains in place, but there has been some significant fluctuation. The Chris Johnson contract situation has caused his stock to fall considerably. With all the time missed due to the lockout and now missing an entire training camp with the holdout, it could take weeks for Johnson to get back up to speed and that is if he signs today.

As of right now, FantasyCPR would not recommend taking Chris Johnson with the first seven picks, however, things will get interesting when the talent pool drops to the next level and you are forced to weigh the options of an abbreviated Chris Johnson season against the likes of Mendenhall, and Calvin Johnson. As each day goes by without a new contract, Chris Johnson’s stock will continue to fall and fall.

Other than that, the gaps between Adrian Peterson and Arian Foster have narrowed now that Foster has returned from injury. We have Peterson, Charles and Foster as essentially picks 1a, 1b, and 1c, you cannot go wrong with picking any of the three.

Things should continue to change over the next two weeks and this is the time when most fantasy football drafts will be held and you just never know when a key player will be lost to injury.

So remember, go running back heavy in the early rounds, do not draft a rookie wide receiver too high, and please do not draft a kicker or defense anywhere above your last two picks in the draft. Peace out.
