U Mumba players in demand
After analyzing the player exchange data from season 3, and season 2 & 3 performances of the players, Messyfractals came up with fair prices at which players should have been sold during auctions this year. Behavioral unpredictability led to differences in auction/actual prices of some players. Every team retained 2 players in their squad before the auctions began. Value contribution of defenders led to a significant hike in auction bids of all the defenders.
U Mumba and Patna Pirates being the finalists in season 3 added a significant value to its players & lost most of their players in the auction
The image above shows season 3 squads. Players above the tilted line are overvalued and players below are a ‘steal’ or are undervalued. Players whose names are marked are highly overvalued this season. All these players are defenders.
U Mumba and Patna Pirates being the finalists in season 3 added a significant value to its players & lost most of their players in the auction. Bengal Warriors & Dabang Delhi affected player value adversely. Dabang Delhi & Puneri Paltan bid at/around a fair price for players.
