Fantasy Football 2012: Undervalued and Overvalued Players

Unlike last season, #85 on the Patriots will put up huge numbers.

There are a number of factors which may dictate or influence someone’s value in a fantasy football draft.

For example, league size (usually between 10-15 teams unless you’re on an FX show) and roster size (usually anywhere from 10-20 draft picks per team) will go a long way towards making your final decisions on who you'll want to draft onto your roster.

You also have to strongly consider the makeup of your roster when drafting. While you may be willing to wait on drafting your quarterback in a one-QB league, you certainly would be less likely to do so if you are in a two-QB league, or in a league where you can use a QB in your flex spot.

Another factor you must strongly consider is your league’s scoring system. In leagues where passing touchdowns are only awarded three or four points, the impact of running quarterbacks like Cam Newton and Robert Griffin III is greater than in leagues where all touchdowns are treated equally.

This list is my own personal list of players whom I feel are either being drafted too early or too late, on a round by round basis. I’m using average draft position data from six different sites as accumulated by fantasypros.com.

For the purposes of this exercise, I will be using a hypothetical 12-team league with 15 players per roster using standard scoring. In each round I will highlight players who I believe are being drafted either too early (“overvalued”) or too late (“undervalued”) based on the data gathered.

Hopefully this exercise will make me look smart, but the truth is that most of the players on my “undervalued” list will be lucky to make it through Week 1 without suffering a debilitating injury.
