  • Thats the waay I was leaning. Thanks Chet

  • Hey im in an auction keeper. I’m keeping AJ Green for $23, and I am choosing between Ray Rice at $75 or Aaron Hernandez for $11. Other elite RBs will be kept by their owners.

    • I think you have to go with Rice.

  • I’d still target RB’s early. I’m looking at D. Wilson, Benson, Hunter, Rodgers, Wright, LaFell, Cobb, Amendola, Jeffery

  • Sup chet! Have a ppr draft in some hours, remember how you did a how to draft the perfect team for the bleacher report? well which approach should i take towards ppr? go for WR early? also which late round wr & rb would you target?

  • Hey Chet. Can I get your thoughts real quick?

    I’m in the third round of a 14 team slow draft. Pick 3.6, 35th overall. We start 3 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, a WR/RB and a WR/TE. I’ve already gone Brady, Richardson. Who do you like of Julio Jones, Ryan Mathews and Doug Martin? My pick in the 4th will be the 50th overall. I’m not sure Martin will make it back to me. Mathews value seems real good at 35th overall. But Julio makes me swoon. Thanks man.

    • Yeah. Those choices are nice. I would have to lean Mathews.

  • BTW, That is a 12-team, non-PPR, standard.

  • Chet, this was my first real draft this year. Any critiques? Thanks!

    • Looks very good. I would try to secure a backup qb. Maybe Russell Wilson if it’s thin.

  • It seems like these values are really top heavy. I estimated my own values for my league this year using $/VBD and based them off my league values for last season. Last year AP went for the most at $48. 10 team league, 3 WR, 2 RB, 2 Flex, 6 bench. So, this year I set Foster at $50 and worked from there. Any particular reason you chose to go to $70 with him? Our values tend to meld in about the 4th-5th tier of each position though. Just curious. Thanks Chet, this will be a handy reference.

  • I think your values are more accurate than most sites but you overestimate values on lower tier players. Lets say you are in a 10 team league and the top 140 players get drafted from this list. Based on your values you are looking at a total auction dollars spend of around $2,750 when there is only an allotted $2,000. So somewhere between players ranked 1-140 there is an extra 750 auction dollars being spent. I understand that these are estimates but just thought i’d throw that out there.

    • Most accurate values I’ve come across from previous experience and recent mock drafts.

      I checked out the values for a 12 team, 16 per team league (192 players) and came across similar extra money, in that case $462. Understand auctions are a different animal and you can’t cover all bases.

      Still lots of insight with these values, hopefully my league mates don’t see them.

    • I’d LOVE some PPR auction values!
      Thanks!
