Here are the top 10 players (out of the top 75 fantasy point scorers thus far) in the league in points per dollar value:

Points per dollar (PP$) is simply calculated by taking the number of fantasy points the player has scored and dividing it by his current OSFF price, as of around Midnight Thursday night. For example, Drew Brees has scored 67.97 fantasy points and is currently trading at $59.97. 67.97/$59.97=1.14 PP$.

1. B. Leftwich - 4.94 PP$
2. C. Buckhalter - 4.18
3. Rick. Williams - 3.97
4. Laur. Robinson - 3.41
5. M. Bell - 3.29
6. K. Collins - 2.77
7. D. Garrard - 2.75
8. K. Orton - 2.66
9. T. Hightower - 2.60
10. Ju. Jones - 2.58

Conversely, here are the bottom 10 in PP$ among the top 75 in current value:

1. G. Olsen - 0.33 PP$
2. M. Forte - 0.36
3. L. Tomlinson - 0.41
4. A. Boldin - 0.42
5. C. Portis - 0.45
6. W. Welker - 0.47
7. S. Slaton - 0.50
8. R. Moss - 0.55
9. S. Jackson - 0.621
10. T. Brady - 0.624

I understand there are quite a few variables that go into these results. Injuries, matchups, recent swings in the market, and projected touches may all impact this number. But it also gives us some good information on fantasy busts and upstarts in this very early season. Not taking into account the variance between a owner's purchase price and the current price, these are the guys who have given teams the most and least "bang for their buck."

And, in a stock market style game, isn't that what it all comes down to?

Damn, I'd still take the bottom 10 9 games out of 10.
