The 2016 RotoViz Scouting Index – Version 2

Last week, I posted our first iteration of the 2016 RotoViz Scouting Index. Check it out to get the lowdown on methodology. Here’s the first weekly update. This week I also take a stab at identifying players on the move.

To do that, I ranked players by their score, and then subtracted last week’s rank from this week’s. A lot more players were ranked this week than last, but I’ll still only show players ranked on more than one site. Some very brief commentary accompanies each table. Stay tuned for prospect write ups.

Quarterbacks

Looking at positional scores, we see some clear tiers. Jared Goff, Connor Cook, Christian Hackenberg, and Paxton Lynch make the top tier. Cardale Jones through Cody Kessler makes for a big second tier. After that is a whole hodgepodge of names that are likely irrelevant.

Running Backs

At running back, the top tier is just three players deep. The second tier runs roughly through James Conner, but tapers off slowly after that. It’s too early to put a lot of stock in “movers,” but Kenyan Drake showed up on twice as many sites (4) this week, as last week.

Wide Receivers

The top two tiers are each three deep. Scores drop rather steeply after that. DJ Foster shows up on three sites this week, vs. just one last week, which moved his score up quite a bit.
