Tiers for NFL players

I'm currently working on making an 2010 NFL roster, but I'm having a lot of trouble determining how to rank the players. It's hard to say whether a player is a gold, silver, or bronze tier. I'm trying to only keep 2010 in mind with the help of stats and not relying on a player's entire career. I started off by making all pro bowlers golds, but that didn't look right since there were a couple of players who probably didn't deserve it. I'm going to go through and edit the ratings for all the generics so it's not a huge difference who is a bronze and generic. The main difference between the two is going to be the Consistency rating. It would be slightly easier if we knew the rest of the ratings categories. Anybody have an idea how I should rate the players? Who deserves to be a gold, silver, or bronze based solely on their performance this season?

Re: Tiers for NFL players

So based upon this year's performance and stats, that Romo is a silver? I was going to place Kitna in Romo's place and put Favre in front of Jackson because that's how it was for most of the year.

This process is going to be a real challenge because there can only be 11 tiered players on a team and I'm going to have to decide which are the 11 best players regardless of position. I can guarantee you that there is going to be about 5 or 6 QBs that are not even going to get a star.

I also think I'm going to use the Pro Bowl starters, reserves, and alternates as a guide for Offensive Linemen.

Pretty good list but no way in hell should Henne be a silver, in fact he shouldn't have any tier.

I am a Dolphins fan, so that may colour my view slightly, but I definitely think he should have a tier. Maybe bronze with no abilities.

When I make my roster, tier is going to have very little to do with the talent of a player. I will go through and adjust the ratings for every player. Only abilities that can not be defined by a rating will be give out (ie. Deception, Bump Buster, Footsteps). If I were to make Henne a bronze, it would be because he is at least the 11th best player on the Dolphins team. Essentially, bronze and generics will be pretty similar in terms of talent and ability with a slight difference in terms of consistency.

Kitna is a backup, theres no reason to put him ahead of Romo. There's no scenario where a healthy Romo would be on the bench in favor of Kitna.

Re: Tiers for NFL players

I was like O_o on the Henny thing aswell and Im a Dolphins fan lol..Henny just needs confidence he has the arm tho but enough abot them,

When making players elite remember that its not usually in the basic pass strength, speed and agility, but in consistency, composure and STAMINA (<--for skill players especially)

Imo there should not be to many Golds, Brady and Manning probably, Nobody should be Godly tho, I dont think it would be too fun if things got unbalanced, and throwing out golds would do that, Silvers and bronz can get it [email protected] thats a good way to look at it are you going to use 2k5s 2011/Maddens rosters for help? Or just go by what you feel?
