Fantasy Baseball: Do Draft List 2022

Yesterday, we wrote about a handful of players that we would not draft at their current ADP. Today, we will go over a few players who we feel are being drafted too low:

J.D. Martinez (BOS) Current ADP: 78

People seem to be unable to look passed J.D.'s poor 2020 season, but

thse numbers can be written off as part of a rule change that did not

allow video study in the dugout. That rule was reverted back to the

norm in 2021 and Martinez finished the season as a top 20 fantasy

outfielder. We would happily take Martinez inside the top 50 overall.

Anthony Rendon (LAA) Current ADP: 61

Rendon battled injuries in 2021 and now everyone seems to have

written him off. Not us. Throughout his career, Rendon has provided

fantasy owners with excellent power and batting average numbers.

At 31 years old, we may not see the same Rendon from before the

injuries, but he is still a top 50 overall player on our draft boards.

Adam Wainwright (STL) Current ADP: 150

Last season, Wainwright finished the season as a top 10 fantasy SP.

Now, he is being drafted well outside the top 100 players overall.

Most notably, after a few down years, Wainwright adjusted his

approach on the mound in 2020, working more off-speed pitches into

his arsenal. Nobody expects him to finish 2021 as a top 10 SP, but his

current rank outside the top 50 SP is simply way too low. There will

be no hesitation scooping up Wainwright in our fantasy drafts.
