Wednesday’s Weekly Wrap Up with JV and 7 (via Instagram live stream) covered the recent news and reports from NFL training camps. Stars in the making have been posting statements left and right in the early weeks of training camp, but how do we separate the hype from true fantasy success? It’s too often that players rise up draft boards based off pre-season campaigns, meanwhile their fantasy value is not nearly as great as their elite ADP. The most important part for fantasy owners is to separate the frauds from the gold.

Brandon Aiyuk has been the biggest name out of training camp in early August. He’s slowly inched his ADP up to WR38 which means his price is near the end of the 8th round (12 team, PPR). The downside about Aiyuk is the Niner’s “run-centered” offensive scheme with breakout RB, Elijah Mitchell, and mobile QB, Trey Lance. Furthermore, Aiyuk will be the third option in the pass game behind WR, Deebo Samuel, and TE, George Kittle (both elite options at their respective positions). Aiyuk might be worth a look if he falls, but his ADP is too rich with so much risk surrounding his floor.

Romeo Doubs is the talk of camp in Green Bay, but don’t be too quick to target him as a “sleeper” in your drafts. Remember Marquez Callaway’s “fantastic sleeper value” coming out of pre-season last year? We could easily see Doubs fade off into a worthless pick, like we saw with Callaway. Plus, let’s not take our eyes off the grand prize in Green Bay – WR, Allen Lazard. With his new WR 1 role in the offense, we can only expect production from the young star. Not a bad pick at his absurd ADP of WR38, especially considering he has a back to back MVP tossing him the rock.

Training camp is often a nightmare for drafters with players flying up and down rankings. That’s why we’re here to help you make the right decisions to win your league. For a full analysis on training camp thus far, head to Instagram ( and/or @7owclock) and check out our most recent live podcast.
