Week 9: NFL Value Power Rankings

The third edition of our Value Power Rankings brings the Carolina Panthers back the top for the second time in 3 weeks. The record-breaking performance from Nick Foles helped launch the Philadelphia Eagles into the Top 10, up 9 spots from last week, while the Falcons and Jets both jumped 6 spots based on their overall performances The Bills, Browns, and Colts all took steps back in terms of value production in Week 8, dropped 6 spots down our list.

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 #6 with a 4-5 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 6-2 in the standings, appears to be overpaying/underproducing on the offensive side of the ball and on special teams.
