Player Value Rankings (PVR)
August 30, 1999
We ranked the NFL's offensive backs, receivers, kickers and return specialists from I (the best) to 500, based on our projections of their statistical production this season. The categories considered were scoring (touchdowns, field goals, extra points), long scoring plays (25 yards or more), big-game potential (300 yards passing, or 100 yards rushing or receiving) and passing efficiency. We also took into account each player's stats from previous seasons, as well as his role on his current team, his prospects for improving or declining, his injury history and his current physical condition. Using these criteria, we determined each player's value rating, or PVR, which appears next to his name in his team's lineup.
