Value Based Drafting is Dead; Subtitle: Long Live Value Based Drafting


I don’t doubt that Value Based Drafting (VBD) is theoretically sound and offers value for fantasy football players trying to think about positional value. But I don’t actually draft using a VBD approach. When I say that I mean that I don’t calculate baselines, create projections, and then go through the draft taking the guy that has the greatest VBD value with each pick. I have a slightly different approach that I’ll describe below, but first let me offer a few words about VBD.
