Here are 5 guys I think are currently going too low in the Best Ball Mania V drafts. Grab these guys for your roster today before other players see the value:

Justin Jefferson, WR, Minnesota Vikings – ADP: 5.5

I think Justin Jefferson going outside the top 3 is insane. If you want to draft Christian McCaffrey before Jefferson, fine. I get it. But I wouldn’t drop Jefferson past No. 2 in any draft. Yes, I am aware of the QB situation in Minnesota. I understand that Sam Darnold or JJ McCarthy (a rookie) will likely throw passes to Jet this year. But when Jefferson is healthy, he is potentially the best wide receiver in the league. I’d take him over Tyreek Hill and CeeDee Lamb. Get some exposure to Jefferson before the market corrects itself.

Kyren Williams, RB, Los Angeles Rams – ADP: 19.0

In 2023, Williams entered the fantasy football scene: 12 games, 228 carries, 1,144 rushing yards, 12 rushing touchdowns, 203 receiving yards, 3 receiving touchdowns. Again, he only played in 12 games and put up those kinds of numbers. He was the workhorse of all workhorses. The Rams drafted Michigan star Blake Corum in Round 3 of the 2024 NFL Draft to try to take the pressure off Williams, but I still think he deserves to be ranked higher than RB7. With the best ball you need guys who get a lot of ball contacts. Even if Corum splits the reps, the work will be there for Williams in 2024.

Nick Chubb, RB, Cleveland Browns – ADP: 103.2

Yes, Chubb is coming off a devastating injury (again). He just can’t catch a break. But when he’s healthy, he’s still one of the best backs in the NFL. RB31 is ridiculously low for a guy who is always great when he plays. Sure, he’ll be closely watched early in the season as he tries to get back into shape, but he could be a potential moneymaker for your top ball team later in the season when the biggest prizes are on the line.

TJ Hockenson, TE, Minnesota Vikings: ADP: 119.4

This is similar logic to the Jefferson section. I don’t care who throws the ball to Hockenson. If I were the Vikings’ quarterback this fall, Hockenson would still be better than TE13, where he is now. He’s a top-10 tight end no matter who throws him the ball. If you can get him around pick 119, that’s an incredible value.

Aaron Rodgers, QB, New York Jets – ADP: 143.9

Like Chubb, Rodgers has a serious injury. He’s on the wrong side of forty and is in the news more often than his general manager and coach would probably like. But Rodgers’ talent is undeniable. And there’s no denying that these Jets’ offense is loaded. New York has Garrett Wilson and Mike Williams as its top 2 receivers. Breece Hall is currently the RB3 in the draft. And the Jets selected Penn State’s Olu Fashanu with the No. 11 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft to bolster the offensive line. If Rodgers can stay upright, he will significantly outperform his ADP.

Keep a close eye on the ADPs for the five guys above as they will likely change as more teams are drafted each day.
