Week 14: NFL Value Power Rankings

The Denver Broncos extended their lead at the top of our rankings in Week 14, with an impressive win over the Titans, who fell 3 spots in light of the loss. With their emphatic win Sunday night the New Orleans Saints leap frogged the Carolina Panthers, rounding out our top three.


Week 13 Risers
The Houston Texans may not be winning, but they're statistically out-producing the cost of their injury-decimated roster right now, and therefore moved up four spots this week to #7. A rebound performance from the extraordinary Kansas City defense shot the Chiefs up two spots this week, while the offense and special teams play from the Cowboys is holding a poor, if not awful, Dallas Cowboys defense up. The potential loss of linebacker Sean Lee may be the nail in the coffin though.


Week 13 Fallers
Despite another ridiculous comeback, the New England Patriots fell 3 spots to #9 in Week 14 - possibly a sign of things to come with the loss of their lead offensive weapon in TE Rob Gronkowski. In similar fashion the Seahawks were grounded by an underrated, and now healthy 49ers lineup. Seattle also dropped three spots this week to #10.

Many are speculating that the Titans big loss to the Broncos this week is the final straw in Tennessee, as names like Chris Johnson, Kenny Britt, and even Jake Locker could find themselves on the trading/free agent block this offseason.


Notable
The Bears put together an impressive offensive performance to defeat the Cowboys on a frigid Monday night in Chicago. But the efficiency of Josh McCown and their talented offensive weapons shouldn't disguise the outrageous lack of production & value on the defensive side of the ball. The Bears currently hold the worst-valued defense of the season (-110.28 TVS); including a 32nd ranked combined linebacking core, 31st ranked combined defensive line, and 30th ranked combined secondary.

 

Most-Valued Offense:Denver Broncos (130.93 TVS)
Most-Valued Defense: Denver Broncos (95.46 TVS)
Most-Valued Special Teams: Carolina Panthers (71.78 TVS)
Largest Differential: Chicago Bears (Offense: 33.6, Defense: -110.3 = 143 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 Houston Texans may seem unworthy at #11 with a 2-10 record, but in terms of the stat product/dollars allocated, they're outperforming the majority of their opponents. On the contrary a team like the Indianapolis Colts, currently 8-4 in the standings, appears to be overpaying/underproducing on the offensive side of the ball and on special teams.
