Fantasy Football Draft Values: Matthew Stafford, Hunter Henry, Rashod Bateman (2024)

With fantasy football best ball contests being released thick and fast it can pay to zoom out and consider where the best values are in each round. Which players do we want to aggressively pursue before fantasy football average draft position (ADP) shifts as draft rooms get busier over the summer? Which players have fantasy football managers been overlooking? These are the best fantasy football draft values in each round based on current Underdog Fantasy ADP. Below we dive into a few notable fantasy football draft values.

Best-Ball: How to Approach the Middle Rounds

Fantasy Football Draft Values: Best Ball ADP

Round 13 – Matthew Stafford (QB – LAR)

The Rams’ success in 2023 was headlined by Puka Nacua and Kyren Williams, but at the heart of it was Matthew Stafford, who rolled back the years and played at a near-MVP level at times. Over the last four years, the only time Stafford has thrown fewer than 3,900 yards was in 2022, when he missed seven games through injuries and the Rams generally being inept. With it being easy to stack Nacua and Kupp it makes too much sense to have some exposure to Stafford in 3-QB builds.

Round 14 – Hunter Henry (TE – NE)

While everyone scrambles to decode the Patriots’ wide receiver room and decide which, if any, should be drafted, Hunter Henry quietly sits in the 14th round as a potential value. Henry saw 4.4 targets per game in a miserable version of this offense with Mac Jones at quarterback. With the ever-reliable Jacoby Brissett and electric Drake Maye, this offense can take a step forward. They certainly paid Henry like a player they expect to be a good part of this offense.


Round 15 – Rashod Bateman (WR – BAL)

Many of us have been burned by Rashod Bateman during his time in the NFL, but John Harbaugh has spoken glowingly of Bateman unprompted at several opportunities in recent weeks, mentioning how often Bateman had gotten open as the 2023 season progressed and things not breaking his way. All being well, Bateman will have his first properly healthy offseason of his NFL career, a year further removed from the Lisfranc injury that often takes two years to fully recover from. The Ravens didn’t bring back Odell Beckham Jr. and extended Bateman when they had the chance to, showing us they still believe in him. At this cost, on an electric offense, it’s worth the gamble.
