How are your fantasy football salary cap values calculated? (Salary Cap Calculator)

Our calculator leverages consensus projections and VORP (Value Over Replacement Player) to create dollar values. It allows you to enter your league settings (roster, scoring, budget, etc) to get a customized output. The value-based approach of the calculations helps to identify players who will provide the most incremental value to your team. As an example, a running back with identical projected stats as a quarterback will typically be valued higher. That's because quality running backs are scarcer than quality quarterbacks. All things equal, the scarcer a position is, the more likely you'll have an advantage over your opponents by grabbing a strong player at that position. We factor this – along with the settings you input – into every dollar value calculated.

What specific settings can I customize?

We offer customization for the key aspects of your league settings. This includes basic settings such as the number of teams, salary cap budget, and roster positions. We also support customization of stat categories including Passing, Receiving, Rushing, and IDP inputs.

Do your salary cap values adjust for inflation?

Yes, our recommended salary cap values support both keeper inflation and in-draft inflation. If you're in a keeper league, it is recommended that you select the keeper inflation option before generating your salary cap values. This will allow the Salary Cap Calculator to bake in how your league's keeper costs impact the dollar values of the remaining player pool. For in-draft inflation, there is a setting within the Draft Assistant that, when checked off, will update your salary cap values on the fly based on how your fantasy football draft is progressing.
