The RotoViz writers were instructed to pick a winner for each matchup based upon the following criteria: 1. RotoViz metrics 2. Projected chance of future success 3. Cost to acquire player (draft price) 4. Personal preference Each staff member’s vote counts as one point.  Each member will post a narrative justifying his pick. In the end the player with the most points advances to the next round.
