Hey Paul and Justin, thanks for the continued excellence of these podcasts. Super helpful as I prepare for my upcoming drafts. I had one question about draft strategy: do you think it’s more important to pay attention to the overall ranking or ADP of a player OR should I be looking at positional rankings? Basically, should I focus on getting the best valued players regardless of position (until I have to start to fill gaps)?
