Rating the Positions | Confidence Score for Each Position

The results aren’t surprising at all.

As you all know, you’ve previously rated the most important positions based on importance, and I’ve done two spreadsheets, one is sorted according to importance, which is the first spreadsheet. I also added a “Confidence Score” which is my very simplistic way of measuring the results. I’m sure someone with a math degree can figure out a better way, but the “Confidence Score” is taking a percentage and multiplying by the number above it and then adding them up at the end [(9.3%*1)+(25.7%*2)+(49.3%*3) . . . ].

This second table is the same chart, but organized by confidence score, so the most confident positions are at the end and seeing this was pretty interesting. Basically, the skill positions are the positions that you are most concerned about, while linebacker, the offensive line, safety, and defensive line are the positions that you feel the most confident in. And the position that you are most unsure about, quarterback, is the most important position. There are two thoughts here, the first is that the positions that you feel most confident about are the ones that can pull up a team despite the quarterback. The better the line play on both sides of the ball can make a quarterback and running back look significantly better. The second thought is that some of these confidence levels have probably changed because the team has added Seth Collins at inside receiver and Antoine Wesley at the X Receiver, makes me feel more confident, those would get a bump from me.

The results aren’t surprising, but it is was interesting to see the results quantified and I hope you enjoyed this exercise. I now need someone to tell me how to quantify the strength of the team by position rank and confidence score!
