I've compared my rankings to ESPN AVG Draft positions. What should the difference mean to me.
For example, I have Grady Sizemore ranked 16 spots higher than his average draft position.
For example, I have Alfonson Soriano ranked 8 spot lower than his average draft position.
I am drafting 12th in a 12 team 5x5 Serpintine draft (non-keeper).
The ADP gives me an idea of where players are likely to be taken, helping me strategize when I have guys ranked at the same level and both are available. For example, I have Trot Nixon ranked much higher than he's going in the ADP. Now, I could grab him in round 12 or 13, but the ADP tells me I can wait until 18. That allows me to choose another guy I rank as equivalent to Nixon and get, in essence two guys that I think are round 12 material.
