An analysis of the players who have fallen in value the most in 2015

It's the holidays and I've found some (plenty) of spare time on my hands so I've decided to log into my fantasy basketball team to do some extra research. Let's face it, this isn't something I don't do every day anyway.

I've decided to take note of 30 players who have fallen in value the most in 2015 by comparing their Yahoo O-Rank to their current rank and seeing if I could find a pattern.

The results include the 30 players and graphs comparing where they were last season, their positions and teams.


Where were they last season?
