Performance Based Value: Team Totals |

"Stepping back for a wider view, Nathan Jahnke reviews the Performance Based Value results by team, highlighting the most over- and undervalued rosters."

The Buffalo Bills got what they paid for. With the handful of players who over-performed being canceled out by the handful who underperformed, Buffalo sat right in the middle of the league. They are going to need more over-performers.

Bills guard Andy Levitre makes some sense for Chargers |

"At 26, his best work may be ahead of him. He's probably not Pro Bowl material. He's not dominant at the point of attack. He's a sound positional blocker."

The photo they use on this article is the main reason to go there. I wonder who said "let's use a picture where Levitre just stands there while Ryan Fitzpatrick is on the ground but tell people we should sign this guy." At least the author discusses Levitre's faults and strengths accurately.
