When drafting for fantasy leagues, the first thing owners often do is simply look at a player's projected stats. They can get a glimpse of the averages -- points, rebounds, assists, steals, etc. -- and then use that as an indicator of a player's value. The concept is simple enough.

While that's a good place to start, there are other factors that must be considered in order to ascertain a player’s true value. Rather than looking solely at the player's production, it's also important to look at the team and situation, as a whole.
