Team Value (TV) is a dynamic metric that represents the cumulative worth of all players on a fantasy team. It fluctuates based on the real-world performance of the players and their perceived value in the fantasy sports market. A high TV indicates a roster filled with high-performing or highly valued players, which can be advantageous in leagues where player values impact trades or other strategic decisions.
Managing TV is a key aspect of strategy in fantasy sports. Owners must balance the need to maintain a high TV with the necessity of fielding a competitive team each week. This might involve making tough decisions about when to trade high-value players for multiple lower-valued, but potentially more productive, players. TV is particularly important in auction-based leagues or in leagues with salary caps.
