In the months leading up to the fantasy football season we spend a great deal of time discussing value. It makes sense; we all want to get the biggest bang for our buck and spend as little as possible.

Whether we’re dropping a couple of dollars on a sandwich or buying a new car we want to get the best deal that we can. The less we spend, the more we have to contribute to future purchases. Value is good. Getting more for less is what we’re constantly trying to do as consumers.

When considering value from a fantasy football perspective we are essentially comparing a player’s ADP to our expectations of his likely outcomes in the coming season. In many ways, fantasy drafters are consumers. Prices are dictated by the market and are heavily influenced by supply and demand.

As such, it’s easy to let our general goals as consumers, including seeking out value, permeate into our tendencies as fantasy drafters. However, this can be a slippery slope leading us towards making less than optimal decisions.
