Brady, Peterson, Gronkowski Most Drafted

With Monday Night Football hours away, the $250K Run & Gun contest is going to come down to who can hold on versus who has a player left. We know the percent drafted feature is important for our players, so we pulled the stats for each player and listed them below.

We’re constantly working to improve FantasyDraft, and we’ll be adding this detail to our contests later in the 2015 NFL season.

Quarterback

Cam Newton and Andy Dalton weren’t popular picks in most lineups, but they top the leaderboard heading into Monday night. The two threw for more than 300 yards and had a rushing touchdown each to eclipse the 30+ point fantasy mark. This bodes well for everyone with Aaron Rodgers and Alex Smith, who have a similar draft percentage.

Luke McCown told everyone in his commercial that if he just had the chance he could really shine. In relief for Drew Breeshe threw for over 300 yards but had a late interception to keep the Saints winless. Maybe next time. And for those of you with Andrew Luck… good thing he finished strong.

Running Back

With the option to take up to four running backs, Adrian Peterson, Le’Veon Bell, Latavius Murray and Jamaal Charles were all popular picks. The first three produced, and we will see tonight if Charles can do the same as well as make up for last week’s struggles.

Congrats to everyone with Joseph Randle. With three TDs in the first half, social media was filled with regret and “I had him but I took him out my lineup last-minute!” messages. There was even more remorse from everyone who slept on Devonta Freeman, who ran all over the the Dallas defense with 45.30 fantasy points.

Wide Receiver

After Larry Fitzgerald‘s big game last week, many people jumped on his bandwagon. He showed up again and is currently in the top-5 receivers on the leader board. A.J. Green was only drafted in 5.5% of lineups, but we’re sure that will change next week. Most people liked Brandon Marshall against the Eagles’ poor secondary, but we’re sure no one liked that lateral-fumble thing he tried in the Jets’ loss to the Eagles. But with 28.90 fantasy points, all is forgiven.

Tight End

Rob Gronkowski is a great pick, especially against the Jaguars. Well, most of the time he is. Disappointing many, Gronk only caught four balls for 17.10 fantasy points. In the same breath, Tyler Eifert who had been ballin’ for the Bengals, put up a goose egg in Cincinnati’s win over the Ravens.

Who’s Gary Barnidge? Doesn’t look like anyone knew, but the Oakland defense got really familiar with him on Sunday. He had six receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown, making him a nice surprise pickup. Alex Smith has a lot of love for his TEs, so the 10.15% of you with Travis Kelce might get some late points to boost your position in the PayoutZone.

Rob Gronkowski NE 35.47%
Jared Cook STL 16.3%

Defense

With the Bears limping into Seattle and Kam “Bam Bam” Chancellor back, most put their faith in the Seahawk’s defense. The re-energized defense forced Chicago to punt 10-straight times and picked up 18 fantasy points in the shutout win. But the real winners were the 6.54% who took Arizona. Of Colin Kaepernick‘s first 10 passes, four went to the Cardinals, two of which were returned for six.

Seattle Seahawks SEA 36.69%
Carolina Panthers CAR 13.31%
Denver Broncos DEN 8.53%
Houston Texans HOU 7.16%
Arizona Cardinals ARI 6.54%
New England Patriots NE 5.95%
