Tight end value shake-up in 2015
Last week we took a look back at 2015 for running backs and wide receivers using an adjusted value-over-replacement-player (VORP) analysis. By adjusting positional scoring by appropriate baselines, and excluding games where players weren’t realistically in fantasy starting lineups (less than 30 percent snap rate), we were able to quantify exactly how valuable players were to their fantasy football teams.
It came as no surprise that Devonta Freeman and Julio Jones were the top producers at their respective positions. But, we were also able to identify players who performed better on a per-game basis, and could be undervalued going into 2016, including Jamaal Charles and Keenan Allen.
