Hi, pls update your username so your email doesn't display. My Dashboard > Edit Profile.

Cafe value is an update to Fantasy Points per dollar. We factor in roster positions and salary cap on a particular site to give you a truer value number. The higher the number the better.

Accepted Answer

Can you elaborate on your answer a little? For instance when you say you factor in for "Roster Position" what does that entail/mean? Also how do you come with the Fantasy Points per dollar? My main concern is that I do not double up on the same things you are already factoring in etc.

Fantasy points per dollar is the number of fantasy points a player is projected to score for every $ in their salary. Pts/$1K of salary is the go to value metric for most players. Cafe Value takes it a step further by factoring in roster position and salary cap on a certain site. That help? What are you doing that could be doubling up on CV?

I didn't know what you included to get your values. For instance if your value for a WR included a bad matchup with a top cornerback, or a RB going up against a good front line etc.

I'm just ignorant when it comes to the provided projections and am looking for info on how that projection was derived. Your CV has a direct impact on that projection as well. That's why I am looking to find out how you go from start to finish to get your CV and final projection.

To clarify Cafe Value doesn't impact projection, it is derived from projection. It is just a value metric to help you assess the players relative value. Projection is calculated entirely separate from CV.

Does the provided "base" Projection number (before adding theory, etc options) include player match ups like mentioned? My goal is to not add/subtract to your protection if it is already figured in.

For instance: Say I am looking at Jason Witten but Dax Prescott got injured last game and it out for this week. Does Witten's "base" projection take this into account?

Yes, projections account for injuries, depth chart moves, matchups, etc. It's all a weighted system though and you may want to weight certain elements higher. You can also mess with FPTS Allowed projection model which weights this even more and that is based on position as well.
