Value Based Drafting

5 posts in this topic

Anyone a proponent of this style of drafting? I've been doing some research on it and am thinking of trying it this year.

First off, lemme know if I'm not talking about the same thing...

I agree with this because now that most team's don't have workhorse backs anymore, the first two rounds aren't as top heavy with RBs.

I'm leaning towards this rather than my typical RB-RB or RB-QB strategy in the first two rounds...making my own top 30/40 or so and picking the highest who's available for the first few rounds

If it sees RB as the best value then it's your pick.

It takes a baseline score then projects players based on the baseline + or -

im a BIG fan of football diehards panthro. also of value based. this idea basically comes from the Cowboys during the Jimmy Johnson era where they understood how to correctly put a value on a player.

do this and you draft calmly and wisely.

I'm a DD user...and while I do use the utility, I don't go directly by what it tells me. I factor in draft pick spot and odds of still getting that particular player when he comes around. I never go blindly by what tools tell me to pick. Lot of other factors go into decisions. Like playoff schedules...etc.

    • I'd love it if someone could do a compare & contrast post on Corey Davis, Zay Jones, Ross and maybe one or two of the other top WR prospects, ranking them on Speed Route running / separation Hands (catch percentage) Durability Fit in our offense For me, Ross is off my board (at least in the 1st round) due to his knees / injury risk.  Davis seems promising but it's hard for me to imagine DG going with him at #8.  Seems like one of other players we are likely to have ranked higher (Thomas, Adams, Fournette, Howard) might be available at #8.  Barnett & Lattimore might be above Davis on our Board and have a pretty high chance of being there at #8... I don't watch much college football at all. (Have enough trouble watching NFL games here in West Africa)  Don't know enough about Zay Jones and any of the other potential round 2 WR prospects....
    • I think Panthers fans would lose their minds if we took Lattimore. But he would be a stud for sure and pairing him with JB24 would be nice.
