Changing of the guard at quarterback in 2015
It’s become increasingly accepted wisdom that waiting on quarterback is the prudent approach in fantasy drafts, as you can find quality options in the later rounds, or you can attempt to “stream” the position week-to-week by picking up quarterbacks on the waiver wire with good match-ups. You can look at seasonal point differentials to get an idea of how valuable top quarterbacks are versus those at the top of other positions, but the traditional value-over-replacement-player (VORP) analysis has its flaws, many that I set out to fix in my VORP posts on running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends.
This post will put all the analyses together by matching up the fantasy-relevant positions against each other, each player measured according to my more accurate adjusted VORP calculation. Now, we have concrete numbers to measure how much value different positions provide, and we can then make more informed decisions on how to prioritize in future drafts.
