In this series of pieces, Pro Football Focus is hammering into the value of players. To us it’s a “Performance Based Value” number, telling you what players were worth (by our grading) in 2012. You can read about the work we’ve done to create it here, but in short: • It’s solely about what a player did on the field in 2012 • Players are grouped by positions so their play essentially earns them a portion of the positional salary pool • It’s all about cap hits (these values are approximate) Here are 2012′s most undervalued and overvalued Dallas Cowboys: (* Denotes player missed significant portion of time through injury) Undervalued 1. Jason Hatcher, Defensive End Over the past few years Hatcher has been an asset to the Cowboys’ interior line, but in 2012 he stepped his game up to a new level. Someone who just looks at sacks for defensive linemen wouldn’t notice it, as he had five in both 2011 and 2012, but he more than doubled his amount of hurries from 14 to 29, and did the same with his run stops from 11 to 24. While he isn’t quiet in the same conversation with J.J. Watt and Muhammad Wilkerson, he is definitely in the next tier. 2012 Cap Hit: $2.1m 2012 Performance Based Value: $8.9m Value Differential: +$6.8m https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2013/03/01/performance-based-value-dallas-cowboys/ Here you go Zoners. This should stir the pot.
