So yesterday we took a look at a few guys to be leery of in the second round. Let's take a closer look at some guys being underdrafted that you should definitely buy at their ADP.

Tyrell Williams, WR - Williams, an undrafted free agent out of Western Oregon, had one of 2016's biggest surprise seasons. The 6-foot-4 receiver stepped up as Philip Rivers's primary passing game option once Keenan Allen yet again succumbed to a season-ending injury.

Williams finished the season as WR18 in PPR formats, and was 22nd in the league in targets. The addition of Mike Williams and the return of Keenan Allen caused some to fret over whether Williams would replicate his 2016 success. With Mike Williams's impending missed time, Tyrell slots right back into WR2 territory.

He's currently going at WR46, which is ridiculous to me. He's being drafted behind the likes of John Brown, Quincy Enunwa, Cameron Meredith, Randall Cobb, and rookie Corey Davis. Williams's weekly average finish last year was WR37, but his median finish was WR29, which suggests a big bargain. That median was comparable to Doug Baldwin (WR28) and better than both Amari Cooper (WR42) and Demaryius Thomas (WR32).


Frank Gore, RB - In a year where the running backs fall off a cliff after the first couple of tiers, Frank Gore is going underdrafted again. He's already defied the age curve, posting a 1000-yard season at age 33. The last time Gore had fewer than 250 touches was the last time he didn't play all 16 games -- 2011. He's the epitome of reliability, even if his on-field decline is readily noticeable.

Gore is going to fall off at some point, but at his current cost, you shouldn't worry about it. Gore's RB12 finish in PPR last year (median finish RB18) is oddly accompanied by a current ADP of RB34. His median weekly finish of RB18 was better than Todd Gurley, Lamar Miller, Jordan Howard, and
was the same as Jay Ajayi. He was only two spots worse than Deovnta Freeman's median finish of RB16. Admittedly, Gore might not fit some draft plans. If you're more interested in just upside at your RB bench spots, it could lead you away from Gore. But let's say you're going zero RB; I can't think of a better RB2 to take in the 6th or 7th round than him.


Kyle Rudolph, TE - Kyle Rudolph, last year's overall TE2 in PPR leagues, is currently going as TE9, in the 8th round! What gives? Rudolph, in his first season with Sam Bradford, emerged as Bradford's safety blanket and red zone reliable.

Rudolph's 11 top 12 finishes led the position, ahead of Greg Olsen and Travis Kelce, both being drafted significantly higher. If you're intent on waiting on TE to minimize the risk of an early bust, you could do a lot worse than Rudolph.

Agreed on all three.

I would also like to nominate Jeremy Maclin
