S46 Draft Big Board - Value Tandems!

Recommended Posts

It's that time of year again where the playoffs drag on and the rest of us are looking forward to the draft.  This season we're back to a less extreme format which will allow us (well most of us anyways) to have more draft flexibility to build our teams to our liking.  That being said I've decided to create a fantasy style "Big Board" for the new tandems to be argued ad nauseum until we actually start drafting.  This is a 3 part project consisting of: 

 

Part 1) RB/DB tandem value rankings 

Part 2) WR/LB tandem value rankings

Part 3) Overall rankings of all the players/tandems

 

Please keep in mind I am NOT going to go over every single player or tandem as they tend to fall off a cliff at some point nor am I going to explain every single selection.  Without further ado here is Tadaos' Big Board Part 1:  RB/DB Tandems!

 

Top Value Tandems RB/DB

Although it was meant to rank the top tandems for value keep in mind that certain players by themselves outweigh other tandems due to the severe impact they have on the team.  Examples include Bo Jackson (game breaker) and Wayne Haddix, Rod Woodson, Deon Sanders (one man defenses) which I value higher than a "value" tandem.

 

Discuss!

Big Board Part 2:

 

Observations:

 

This list is MUCH smaller compared to the RB/DB list as the WR/LB value tandems just aren't there.  My prediction is we will sees tandems on this list going in the mid-late 1st round through the 3rd round.  However there are a TON of individual players that will get drafted in the later rounds.  Check it:

 

Wide Receiver POS OG Team RS MS HP BC REC MS + REC     Linebacker POS OG Team RS RP MS HP INT RP + HP + INT TAKEN
Henry Ellard WR1 RAM 44 56 13 50 81 165     Kevin Greene LB4 RAM 38 50 56 69 19 138 0

Eugene Lockhart LB2 DAL 31 44 50 56 19 119
Karl Mecklenburg LB1 DEN 31 44 50 56 19 119

 

Certain WRs are game breakers and are worthy of this list because of the individual talents (Rice, Rison,  Hill, Givins, Anderson, Carter)

 

Certain LBs can almost play one man defense (LT and DT).

 

Talk amongst yourselves!

Honestly over last few seasons I'm seeing the value in the True Studs over B+ combo picks in overall utility in winning games. Aside from top maybe 8-18 picks after the stud QBs are gone some killer combos are easy best available. Getting into late rd 1 and throughout rd 2 though I see more value in picking up the solo beasts. This draft format is better for that considering you don't need all of HOU WRs or all of CHI DB's, you can pick up whats needed and don't overvalue package deals.
