DRAFT DAY: Players to Avoid Rounds 1-3

WR_Adam_Thielen_MIN_1

Thielen is a great story, but he is being drafted way too high in fantasy leagues. With an ADP of 3.09 he is going higher than some premium wideouts that will outperform him such as Amari Cooper (3.10), Stefon Diggs (4.05) and Julian Edelman (4.08).

DRAFT DAY: Late Round Gambles
