Dynasty: Value of Rookie Picks (Historical ADP)

An inside look at the real value of Dynasty Rookie Picks
 0 Reader Comments | Add Yours

So something we've been working on for a while now, is the ADP data of the rookie picks during last season's start up drafts. You may or may not be trading these picks around and wonder to yourself, just how valuable are these rookie picks?
Well, here you go, last year's results - all 12 leagues. This is the average draft position where each of the rookies were selected in last season's twelve startup Dynasty Football World Championship drafts. These are all PPR leagues with a heavy emphasis on the wide receiver position. The Starting Lineup requirements are: 1 QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1PK, 1DST and 2 FLEX.
Remember, last year the rookie crop was headlined by Tavon Austin, Le'Veon Bell, Giovani Bernard, Montee Ball, Eddie Lacy, Cordarrelle Patterson and DeAndre Hopkins. They were near the top of everyone' s draft board.
Pick ADP
1.1 45.1 - Want to deal for the 1.1 rookie pick? Looks like it's worth about a Mid-4th Round pick in a startup dynasty draft.
1.2 49.1
1.3 51.7
1.4 55.3
1.5 61.6 - A top end rookie pick (1.5 - 1.6 range) is still worth a very high value, End of the 5th, 6th round.
1.6 72.8
1.7 79.9
1.8 90.2
1.9 97.2
1.10 105.9
1.11 110.4
1.12 113.2
2.1 118.6 - The Top of the 2nd round rookie pick is worth about a 12th rounder in a startup dynasty draft.
2.2 124.3
2.3 126.8
2.4 131.1
2.5 134.7
2.6 139.9
2.7 145.1
2.8 150.1
2.9 155.3
2.10 158.7
2.11 164.9
2.12 169.5
Depending on the league you're in, some leagues value rookies more than others. Use this chart to determine quickly what type of league you're in. If you see the rookies coming off the board early, adjust your rookie values accordingly.
This is the range for each pick, low and high out of 12 startup dynasty drafts in the Dynasty Football World Championship.
Low High
1.1 37 55 - So if you're trading for the #1 Rookie pick this season, you should receive back somewhere between a 3rd round pick and no worse than a mid 5th round pick.
1.2 38 58
1.3 41 59
1.4 49 63
1.5 53 71
1.6 63 68
1.7 71 93
1.8 80 102
1.9 82 109
1.10101 112
1.11 104 116
1.12 107 126
2.1 108 140
2.2 117 145
2.3 118 146
2.4 119 149
2.5 120 150
2.6 126 154
2.7 133 157
2.8 134 158
2.9 138 178
2.10 140 182
2.11 142 195
2.12 144 199
Now interestingly enough, in our recent mock startup, they went much earlier. Not sure if that's because it wasn't putting the $299 on the line or if it truly means that the DFWC community feels this year's crop is more valuable than last year's crop.
1.1 28 - WR Sammy Watkins
1.2 32 - WR Mike Evans
1.3 44 - RB Carlos Hyde
1.4 53 - RB Ka'Deem Carey

It's my hope that these help you during your trade discussions. If you're looking to play this season, the Dynasty Football World Championship ($299 to enter) is still accepting entries for the 2014 Season but selling fast. The 72 May Startups are SOLD OUT, but June and July teams remain. Learn more at www.DynastyKing.com
Good luck!
