2013 Fantasy Football Draft Position Index Ratings
It’s an easy excuse to make, but you’re finally going to have some data to help you know the disadvantages associated with your draft position. You’ll know what to be aware of so that you can always draft a competitive team. That’s right, your classic excuse is about to be eliminated. Sorry.
Today I’m introducing fantasy football draft position index ratings. The data came from dozens of mock drafts ran using the FantasyPros mock draft simulator (which can be found at PFF Fantasy), and the projections come from PFF Fantasy’s own Mike Clay.
The starters for the mocks were 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, and 1 Flex (RB/WR/TE) in a points-per-reception (PPR) league. Only skill position starters are included in the draft position index (which means bench players are not included). Essentially, this data is meant to help you during the most crucial part of your draft – the first 8-10 rounds.
The index standard is 100, so a rating of 100 means that the team drafted was average. A rating of 110 means the team is projected to score 10% above average, etc., etc.
So, without further ado, below are the 2013 fantasy football draft position index ratings for all 12 draft spots:
