I've been meaning to comment on this article but have been caught up researching my own lately. I actually found a sticky note on my dry erase board reminding me about this particular thought process.
While it has merit, it seems your application of it has some flaws. For instance, I took a look at your tiering sheet and immediately was left scratching my head.
You show as an example that the first 9 picks should be "A" tier RB's, but you only list 6 as "A" tier.
While I agree on selecting a QB somewhere in or after the fifth round, again your sheet instructs that the only QB recommended is an "A"...and yes, only four qualify in your tiering...and it's far from likely that any of them will be around by then.
My point is that, theoretically speaking, it sounds good. But as soon as you put it to practical application it seems to fail quickly.
As a long-time admirer of your work in the fantasy field, I'm honored that you took the time to review my work and comments here on the site.
I appreciate you catching my mistakes in the tier draft list and I will make those corrections. The tier draft list is a simple by-product of the site and is actually not correlated to the Quality Game Scores at all. People found it useful last year, but as you mentioned, it needs tweaked.
I would appreciate to hear your thoughts surrounding the Quality Game Scores and its usefulness as a tool.
Again Ben, I thank you for taking time out of your busy season to review my work.
