I'm starting to just get the feeling that none of the other kids like playing with us :(

Valuing our players

17 January 2015 - 04:52 PM

Im bored. My car broke down on the freeway and im waiting for the tow truck. Meanwhile, Ive been reading through the trade thread and its obvious that when it comes to valuing our players, there is a wide range of opinion on what they are worth. So I thought it might be fun to play a little game and get a better idea of the general consensus is.

If you want to participate, make a list of our current roster players and before reading anyone else's answers, assign a value to each. To keep it simple, ive used only the following values: Picks (number of picks and which round), and/or prospects (top, mid or low prospect). You're free to use whatever values you feel appropriate, but those are the ones I will be using.

Once youve come up with your list and have posted it, go back and read what other people have come up with and see how you did!

P.S. I obviously havent put a ton of thought into this (and I dont think you should either) so please don't pick my list apart by comparing player A's value versus player B. These are just off the top of my head.
