The Top 200 value based rankings assigns player values which account for your league's starting lineup requirements and scoring system.

Watch as 4for4 expert TJ Hernandez illustrates how to customize your Top 200 Value Based Rankings. You can also read more about the Top 200 Value Based Rankings below.
To get started generating your customized Top 200 Value Based Rankings Report, enter your league settings and save your league in the Full Impact hub. Once you have done that, tell us how many teams are in your league and how many starters you use by position. Entering your specifics takes about 15-seconds. As you'll soon see, these variables are absolutely essential in helping you determine the most valuable fantasy players in your league. That's why canned Top-100 lists often just don't cut it.
Finally, select your league from the "Choose your league" dropdown menu, which comes with several pre-canned scoring setups which are designated by [fi]. After completing your configuration, you'll generate a Value Based Rankings report. The report will rank players and teams based on their relative value, regardless of position and includes the following information:
- Top 200 rank
- Relative value
- Positional rank
- Projected fantasy scoring specific to your league settings
- Bye weeks
- Up-to-date ADP
The Top 200 Value Based Rankings Report is sortable by each category and is easily exported to a CSV file for easy customization and use as an on the go rankings report that you won't get with a generic Top-100 list!
How does it work?
To understand relative value, let's look at a simple example. Say you're in a two-team league that starts four players: QB, RB, WR and TE. Assuming projections equal reality, here are the eight players that are available:
- QB1: 28 points, QB2: 25 points
- RB1: 24 points, RB2: 19 points
- WR1: 18 points, WR2: 16 points
- TE1: 19 points, TE2: 11 points
Which player has the most value? Of the eight players, QB1 scores the most points, but that does not make him the most valuable. Remember, the idea is to outscore your opponent at each position, so relative value is more important. In order to determine relative value, we find the difference between the two players at each position. The second player in each equation is the baseline for that position.
- QB: 28 - 25 = 3 points
- RB: 24 - 19 = 5 points
- WR: 18 - 16 = 2 points
- TE: 19 - 11 = 8 points
From this, we can assign a score to each player: TE1 (8), RB1 (5), QB1 (3), WR1 (2). The most valuable player in the draft is TE1 because he gives you the greatest advantage (+8) over your opponent. The next player on your draft list should be RB1, followed by QB1 and WR1.
VBR is essentially the same process on a much larger scale. It takes your customized league settings (i.e. scoring system, starter requirements) and generates customized baselines to determine relative value.
Traditional value rankings use "worst starter" or "average starter" methodology, but due to position scarcity, most fantasy owners covet RBs (and to a lesser extent, WRs) more than the other positions. To account for this, we calculate baselines using "core roster" methodology.
Your core roster is simply your starting skill position players, with any flexes being split among the positions. Alternatively, you can tweak your core roster requirements to better fit your league's draft tendencies.
So for a 12-team league that starts one QB, two RBs, two WRs, a flex and a TE, your core roster would look something like this:
- QB: 1
- RB: 2.5
- WR: 2.5
- TE: 1
The Value Based Rankings Application then calculates baseline scores at each position and presents you with a list of players, ranked by relative value.
