NFL training camps are right around the corner—a time when players’ fantasy football stocks rise and fall as the beat writer buzz begins to reach fever pitch.
Fantasy owners and analysts alike spend much of the offseason predicting the most undervalued players for the upcoming 2014 season; however, training camp can often foil the anonymity of those coveted sleepers.
Finally, depth chart battles will play out, and guys who have flown under the radar thus far will be outed to the general public as breakout and bounce-back candidates. Players who are in line for an increased role on their team will draw added attention from the media, and outspoken coaches never fail to make headlines regarding such players.
Here, we will take a look at an AFC player on each team whose ADP (average draft position) should rise during training camp, for one reason or another. This is the first part of a two-part series on the AFC, with part two coming later this week.
Using FantasyFootballCalculator.com’s ADP data, the current draft position for each player is listed, followed by a projection for that player’s expected ADP post-training camp.
Next week, we’ll examine the NFC leading right up to the start of camps.
