Evaluation by Association

Ranking NFL offenses as units and identifying valuable fantasy assets from each

A man wished to purchase a donkey, and decided to give the animal a test before buying him. He took the donkey home and put him in the field with his other donkeys. The new donkey strayed from the others to join the one that was the laziest and the biggest eater of them all.

Seeing this, the man led him back to his owner. When the owner asked how he could have tested the donkey in such a short time, the man answered, "I didn't even need to see how he worked. I knew he would be just like the one he chose to be his friend."

What you read above is not a random farm story. It's one of Aesop's fables. The moral of this one is that you are judged by the company you keep. While we would all prefer to have judgement be completely merit-based, it can be (and often is) done on a much more superficial level.

The same can be said of player evaluation in fantasy football. If fantasy evaluation and production were purely talent-based, why would we be having David Johnson vs. Todd Gurley arguments when Gurley is the more talented, more pedigreed player?

Aside from talent, opportunity and situation are significant components to fantasy evaluation and to ultimate production. Great situations can often buoy lesser talents above blue-chip talents in fantasy football. That's why we're going to rank all 32 NFL offenses. From there, we'll identify the players that drive each team's ranking and also sleepers/value plays from each.
