This thread is dedicated to guys that will likely be overvalued on Draft day and that you will be avoiding at their expected ADP.

I'll start it off with one guy who might have one more year of name value left: David Wright. No thanks.

Stanton isn't a top 14 player next year? Carlos Gomez is around the top 14 too.

I'd draft Stanton and Gomez top 14 next year. Cargo will definitely be an untouchable next year he's done stealing bases this year who knows if that changes next year

Stanton is an easy top 5 pick and arguably 3rd.

It is too early but I'll contribute:

Danny Salazar - likely still will be rated highly because the experts love strikeouts, but at this point he's basically Ubaldo Jimenez.

Bryce Harper - His draft price will still be top 3 rounds, even if he hits 30 HR and stays healthy, that could come with .260 and batting 6th which will make it very tough for him to live up to that price.

Troy Tulowitzki - injured every year, unless your league has pro injury settings.

Danny Santana - If the season ended today Santana might end up being a top 13 round draft pick but all of his numbers are screaming fluke. Stay away.

This seems might silly to talk about now. There's 1/3 of the season left. Way too much can/will change to make any of this relevant.
This will be a great discussion in November.

I'd still go Trout, Miggy, Goldschmidt, and Cutch. Owning Kershaw this year is a maybe, but sure is nice just to set and forget him.

I agree with some here (Brantley, Cruz, Melky). Brantley will be severely overrated imo. He is good but can't expect 20/20 next year. Will likely be in round 5 about when he's a round 10 player. Cruz has never hit HR at this pace, and he most likely cashes in on a big long term contract this year. Maybe a good ballpark will sway my opinion, but he has 7th round value written all over him but will be inside top 5. Besides average Melky wouldn't be considered above average in any category for an OF. Definitely not worth a high pick. Average is too volatile to depend on, and Melky's value solely depends on that.

But for others they are top players and I would expect fair prices on them.

I don't understand the Cruz avoidance, both this year and going forward (providing he stays in BLT). Last year he had 27 HR in 109 games. This year 29 HR in 102 games. The pace is very close. Last 5 years he has 164 HRS with a 3rd of this season left. Since he stopped running he isn't injured as often.

Are you really saying that an OF that seems like a lock for a .260/80/33/80/3 you are going to consider overrated in the 5th round?

No such thing as a true DND for me, but I can't see myself paying the required value for CarGo, Harper, Bruce, and others. Someone always sees the upside and not the risk.

What would Stanton be overvalued? This confuses me. I can only think of injury risk but think his risk is the same as everyone else in the MLB. Easy top 10 player. Top 5 based on preference.

Nelson Cruz in 3rd is too high. After the 5th, maybe. Chris Davis likely to come in high too.

True DNDs for me have always been guys that simply do not do average (e.g. Dunn, Uggla).

Or guys that have such an unusual stat skillset for their position (e.g power hitting middle infielders that get zero steals) that I have to reconstruct my whole team around them.
