Am I going to avoid Beltran b/c he doesn't have the highest VORP? I dont' think so. Am I going to out and run to get Wilkerson b/c he has the highest VORP? I don't think so (b/c I already have him

For example if Team A scores an average of 2 runs a game. And let's say one player on Team A is typically responsible for driving in one of those runs and possibly scoring one those runs.
Then there is Team B who typically score 10 runs a game. And let's say that there is one player on Team B who drives in an average of two runs a game and scores around one run a game.
Assuming the same BA and SB totals, the stud player on Team A is more "valuable" to his team and probably has a higher VORP, no? But in a fantasy sense, the player on Team B is probably the better fantasy player.

I don't get it. Did they have similar VORP's?
