This means that, on average, CeeDee Lamb is taken around ninth overall.

You might decide that Lamb is somebody who should be taken later (like 13th or 14th), so based on that, you say that he is overvalued at his ADP.


ADPs will vary based on the type of draft that is being done.

For instance, in a superflex draft, the ADPs of quarterbacks will be much, much more.

Or, in a 1.0 PPR (Points Per Reception) draft, pass-catching running backs will have a much higher ADP compared to standard scoring leagues.
