RapidDraft ADP Update – August 20, 2009

Pierre Thomas, RB, NO

Thomas is currently the 21st RB being selected with an ADP of 36. That means that you can get him as your RB2 with a very good chance that he’ll produce like a RB1. In 181 career carries, Thomas has 10 TDs to go along with four receiving TDs on 48 catches. He has averaged 4.8 yards per carry and is going to be the main cog in

New Orleans‘ ground game.

Reggie Bush

appears healthy for now, and his 3.7 yards per carry are not enough to scare us off.  If Thomas is there in the third round, I’m grabbing him and so should you.

LeSean McCoy and Brian Westbrook, RB, PHI

I don’t care if it’s a PPR league, Westbrook should not be the sixth running back drafted. Let the experts grab Westbrook at No. 7, I’ll wait to pick 101.1 and grab McCoy (42nd RB taken) and wait for the inevitable Westbrook injury.

McCoy was very impressive last Thursday night rushing for 55 yards on 10 carries. There is no way that Westbrook will get the rock enough to warrant a pick in the first round. So, sit back and don’t be afraid to grab McCoy a round or two early.

Matt Leinart, QB, ARI

Here is your lottery ticket. He is rarely being drafted and as a man who likes high-odd wagers, I’ll grab him late and bet that Kurt Warner won’t be able to play another 16 games this season. I know that Leinart looked terrible last year, but I just don’t believe that Brian St. Pierre, who has only thrown one pass in the NFL and that was in 2004, is actually going to unseat Leinart as Warner’s backup.

Warner is still having trouble with his hip and with a playoff schedule that has

San Francisco,

St. Louis and

Detroit in Weeks 14, 15 and 16, Leinart could be a diamond in the rough. Oh yeah, Leinart actually didn’t look that bad in

Arizona‘s first preseason game.

Kurt Warner, QB, ARI

There’s no way that I take him as the fourth QB off the board with an ADP of 45.8. See above.

Matt Schaub, QB, HOU

As the 13th QB off the board with an ADP of 100.1, you have a chance to grab a Top 3 QB at a huge discount. He ranked as the seventh-best QB on a per game basis last season. With Steve Slaton, Andre Johnson, Kevin Walter and Owen Daniels the

Houston offense is a force to be reckoned with. The only question is can Schaub stay healthy?  At this price, I’m willing to find out.
