2012 NFL All-Value Team

As the 2012 NFL season nears its end, it's time to take a look back and evaluate the steals of the season. In the era of the team salary cap, finding a diamond in the rough player who can output elite production at a low cost can translate into additional wins, and postseason eligibility. 2011 was a classic example of this, as Victor Cruz was a key component to the Giants Super Bowl run at the league minimum value

Our experts have compiled the numbers per major position to determine Spotrac's 2012 All-Value Team. We'll take a look at the offensive roster below.

As usual with these type of evaluations, many of the decisions were difficult - no moreso than the Quarterback position. It's not often that an NFL season contains true "value" at the quarterback position, where dollars quickly build up. The key component factorered in this year is durability, or games played. RGIII may have outperformed Russell Wilson in some statistical categories, but his injuries not only put a dent in the middle of the regular seaeson, it clearly affected the Redsksins' postseason run as well.

Your comments, cheers, and jeers are more than welcome.
