2017 Fantasy Baseball Draft Prep: The best values on CBS, ESPN and Yahoo

We spend a lot of time talking about ADP in terms of the industry consensus. While that’s helpful on a macro level, it doesn’t do a lot for you on draft day. With that in mind, and the biggest draft weekend upon us, I’ve put together my favorite values on CBS, ESPN and Yahoo. 

The list for CBS is shorter, which makes sense. One of the many things that influences ADP at a particular site is the rankings on that site. The CBS ADP is at least somewhat closer to my rankings than the other sites.

I tried to avoid listing a bunch of players from the same position, but the fact is there are a lot of outfield values I like on Yahoo and several young pitchers you can nab late on ESPN. No matter where you’re drafting, this list should help you prioritize positions as you maneuver through your draft.
