It's called Value Based Drafting or VBD. Why listen to us about it? Because this is where it started. I introduced VBD to the fantasy football world back in 1996 when players like Keyshawn Johnson, Eddie George, and Marvin Harrison had yet to play an NFL down. And for the last 21 years, we've never stopped improving it.

Today, it's the hot ticket among hardcore owners and many sites have attempted to copy it. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Let's just say we're flattered. But like most imitators, they're still playing catchup. Stick with us here and let us lay out the key to drafting domination.
