I'm trying to figure out a way to value fantasy football draft spots to help facilitate some trades. For example, should I trade my First Round pick (#6) for a Second (#17) and Third (#20)? There is the famed Jimmy Johnson draft chart and its successors for the real NFL draft, but fantasy is obvious very different. I haven't really found anything that I trust that would apply it for my fantasy draft.
Using KUBIAK, I was thinking of taking the "Points Over Baseline" as a proxy. For example, say the 6th pick is worth 93 points over baseline. I then go down to #17 (68 points) and #20 (58 points) and see that I would be netting 33 extra points as a rough approximation.
Keeping in mind that this is just an example, would this be a pretty good approximation? Any other suggestions or concerns?
