Fantasy Football: Where Your Lions are Getting Drafted

Fact: Everyone loves Fantasy Football.

Fantasy Football has now been underway for quite some time, and if you plan on joining some leagues, you have a little under a month to join your respective leagues if you want to make it in time for week one.

I decided to compile each Lions player’s average draft position from multiple sites (only included in the top 100) to get a sense of where your favorite players are getting drafted.

NFL.com

WR Calvin Johnson (1st round, pick 9)

RB Reggie Bush (3rd round, pick 25)

QB Matthew Stafford (6th round, pick 51)

RB Joique Bell (9th round, pick 87)

A little surprised Golden Tate is left out of the top 100 here, I expect big things from him at the #2 wide receiver spot.

ESPN

WR Calvin Johnson (1st round, pick 7)

RB Reggie Bush (4th round, pick 31)

QB Matthew Stafford (4th round, pick 37)

RB Joique Bell (8th round, pick 76)

WR Golden Tate (9th round, pick 88)

More love for the Lions given from ESPN.

Yahoo! Sports

WR Calvin Johnson (1st round, pick 6)

QB Matthew Stafford (6th round, pick 48)

RB Reggie Bush (7th round, pick 62)

RB Joique Bell (10th round, pick 92)

WR Golden Tate (10th round, pick 94)

Yahoo! is not as big of a fan as Reggie Bush in fantasy leagues as NFL.com and ESPN are. But to be fair, they also have David Akers on their list still, and on average he’s getting drafted in the 12th round.

Ebron is also just shy of the top 100 in all of these lists, having an ADP of around 120-140. Don’t feel guilty for reaching for him, because even though rookies don’t tend to score high in fantasy football, expect Ebron to see a lot of balls thrown his way.
