Week 12: NFL Value Power Rankings

The Week 12 edition of our Value Power Rankings show the Broncos continue to produce to their pricetags, even with the tough overtime loss in New England. Both the Panthers and Saints hold tight and 2 and 3 respectively, despite tough victories in Week 12. With their incredible comeback victory, the Patriots hop 4 spots this week into the Top 5, largely in part to a spark in their offense (finally). While the St. Louis Rams become the big Week 12 gainer, jumping 8 spots into the Top 10.

On the negative side, the Chiefs have slipped out of the Top 10 this week, with an offensive value rating of nearly -30. The Rodgers-less Packers continue to slide, dropping 6 spots this week to #25 in our rankings. But at a -53 TVS, it's the defense that appears to be the culprit in Green Bay.

Other notable points, include the bottoming-out of the Bears defense, who posted a season low -106 TVS. The Chargers hold the 5th best offensive value, but find themselves #26th overall due to abismal play from their defense and special teams. Conversely, the Jets hold Top 10 values in both defense and special teams, but a -76 offensive TVS lowers their overall ranking to #22.

The bottom 6 teams in our rankings remain unchanged from Week 11 , even with yet another win for the Cardinals and Jaguars, and a solid effort from the Falcons.

Most-Valued Offense: Denver Broncos (96.82 TVS)
Most-Valued Defense: Kansas City Chiefs (87.44 TVS)
Most-Valued Special Teams: Carolina Panthers (62.00 TVS)

What determines a team's True Value?
Spotrac's True Value Statistic is determined by comparing an indiviudal player's current statistical production to the average player's production for his particular position. The same comparison is made in terms of financial figures (2013 cap value). To find a team's overall True Value Statistic, we take the TVS from each indvidiual starting player, offense, defense, and special teams, to find a total value number for that particular team.

Layman's Terms
Simply put, we're looking at how a team is producing based on the financial spending of their current starting roster. Because of this, our list varies when looking at the Win/Loss record. A team like the Philadelphia Eagles may seem unworthy at #8 with a 5-6 record, but in terms of the stat product/dollars allocated, they're outperforming the majority of their oppoents. On the contrary a team like the Indianapolis Colts, currently 7-4 in the standings, appears to be overpaying/underproducing on the offensive side of the ball and on special teams.
