What is Value Over Replacement Player (VORP) ?

Value Over Replacement Player (VORP) is a key statistical concept in fantasy sports that measures the additional value a player brings over a typical replacement player that could be found on the waiver wire or as a free agent. This metric helps in evaluating the true worth of a player by comparing their performance to the average performance of other players in the same position who are readily available.

VORP is particularly useful in assessing the value of top-tier players compared to those who are just average. A high VORP indicates a player significantly outperforms the average replacement and thus holds more value in a fantasy lineup. This metric is essential for making informed decisions during drafts and when evaluating trades, as it helps fantasy managers understand the true impact of a player on their team.
