Fantasy Football 2014: Finding the Best Value for Quarterbacks and Running Backs

Last week, my personal top 200 fantasy football player rankings showed where I value each player at this point in the offseason. Now with the help of these rankings, we can take a look at where the best fantasy values can currently be found at each offensive position.

Today, we’re looking at quarterbacks and running backs. Later this week we’ll delve into the wide receiver and tight end positions.

To determine in which rounds of the draft you will find the top value picks, we will compare my rankings against two of the most statistically sound draft tools in the fantasy universe: FantasyPros.com’s Expert Consensus Ranking (ECR) and FantasyFootballCalculator.com’s Average Draft Position (ADP) for 12-team, standard league mock drafts.

For each player profiled here, a comparison table will help illustrate the difference between these three measures. This variance in rankings will reveal some of the best steals at each position in the early, mid and late rounds of the draft. For the purposes of this piece, these categories are defined as follows, according to each player’s ADP:

  • Early Rounds: Nos. 1-5
  • Mid Rounds: Nos. 6-10
  • Late Rounds: No. 11 or later

With all that in mind, let’s take a look at the current top bang-for-your-buck quarterbacks and running backs in fantasy!
