ADP watch - undervalued

We look at which fantasy players preseason drafters are not selecting soon enough Profiled players include Carson Palmer, Tony Romo, Chris Ivory, Darren McFadden, and Michael Floyd.


One of the bigger risk / reward selections at the WR position as he flashed WR1 potential in the Skins opener against New Orleans (four catches for 109 yards and 1 TD in his first 8 plays of the season), but suffered a foot injury that forced him to miss 6 games and hampered his production for the remainder of the season. Garcon finished with 44 catches for 633 yards and 4 TDs. He decided against offseason foot surgery, but did have surgery on a partially torn labrum. Provided he can stay healthy (a major if), Garcon should more than justify his current draft slot in rounds 5/6. He is expected to start at split end (a position that has resulted in monster fantasy production from Brandon Marshall, Andre Johnson and Rod Smith in past Mike and Kyle Shanahan offenses).


A season ending injury to Maclin makes D-Jax the focal point of the passing game. Jackson is essentially entering a contract year (owed $10.25 million in 2014, but only $750,000 guaranteed). A week 11 rib injury kept him sidelined for the final five weeks of the season, but D-Jax was on pace to set a career high in catches as he finished with 45 catches for 700 yards and two TDs. He had five catches or more in five of his 11 starts. D-Jax posted back to back 1,000 yard seasons in 2009/2010 (led the league in yards per catch --22.5 -- in 2010). During his 5-year career, the 26 year old has amassed 26 TDs and should produce borderline WR2 numbers as the focal point of an up tempo Chip Kelly passing game. He is currently hearing his name called in rounds 7/8.


Injured and limited to seven games in 2012, Davis finished with just 24 catches for 325 yards (32 targets) and not a single TD. The 27 year old USC alum enters this season in a contract year and initial reports from training camp indicate that he looks close to fully recovered from ACL surgery last October. In 2011 (Davis' best season to date), he finished with 59 catches for 796 yards and 3 TDs. Washington lacks talent at the WR position (other than Pierre Garcon - also returning from injury), so Davis makes for a solid bounce back target as he should become a favorite of RG3 (especially in the red zone). If Davis proves to be healthy, he has TE1 potential (worst case is a solid backup fantasy TE with upside) and can be had in the final rounds of most drafts based his current ADP as the 18th TE (160 overall).
