2013 NFL All-Value Team

Our final list of the 2013 season takes a look at the best value player at each position for both the AFC and NFC conferences. Our selections were based on cash compensation in 2013 (not cap figures), and positional rankings from Pro Football Focus. We’ve also included the player’s free agent season to assess who may be inline for new deal in the near future.

AFC All-Value Team

USA TodayAndrew Luck earned $1.3 million in cash with the Colts this season.

Andrew Luck and the Colts came out of the gates quickly this season, but were stalled midway through when key injuries set in. But Luck was consistently great throughout the year, throwing for 3,800 yards and rushing for 570 more.

While plenty of younger running backs made impacts on small dollars in 2013, Jamaal Charles’ season was too strong to leave him off this list. He ties for the highest compensation on our All-Value team.

3 Broncos made our AFC team this year, all entering the final year of their contracts in 2014.

The total cash cost for our AFC All-Value team is $20,194,131.
