WR equality...

The elite may be special (due to talent or situations) but solid WR's (unlike TE's, QB's and RB's) are about a dime a dozen and always available after a week or two on waiver wires.

Concentrate on an elite pick (or two) WR early and then scale back to concentrate on more scarce talent pools before it's too late...

test this one out by week 3 and see if you can find 2 impact RB's (orTE or QB) on the waiver wire... hmmmm... yet there will be a dozen potential plug in WR's still settling in.

Truth #1: how Value is defined

Value is relative to:

* The difference between a player's points (weekly or cumulative) vs. the players' points who are directly above and below that player in the standings... that is to say, if LT is 55 points better than the number two RB and Brady is 150 points better than the number two QB, can you tell me the relative value difference between having LT or TB on your roster?   Of course, even if RB's are more coveted in general, such an example illustrates the seasonal or weekly value of having the better scoring player despite the "rules" we follow.  

Now predicting these scores gets a bit trickier, but at least we have defined the first goal.
