NFL Value-Based Drafting (VBD) Rankings

2021 Tight End Projections

What is Value-Based Drafting (VBD) Rankings?
Value-based drafting (VBD) is a strategy that assigns a value to every player by comparing that player's fantasy points to the fantasy points of a baseline player at the same position. A high VBD means a player offers strong incremental value at his position and is therefore valueble overall in fantasy. Check out our Value-Based Drafting Guide for more VBD insight.
