The SimBengals are the most expensive team on SimNFL. Yes you read that right, the highest price per share at $64.87 (at the time of writing this). This is very overpriced as the Bengals are a very young team, coaching staff, and a below average offensive line. It seems like the investors are betting on Joe Burrow becoming one of the top NFL quarterbacks as well as the entire team progressing. The Bengals are due for a setback in SimNFL unless they somehow go undefeated for the next three years. Due to this if you own SimBengals you should sell ASAP.
Verdict: Strong Sell
The SimBrowns are the tenth most expensive team in SimNFL after coming off one of their best seasons to date. With the addition of Jadeveon Clowney in free agency, while not losing key players in free agency, the Browns may repeat last season. If Baker Mayfield plays at an even higher level this year, the Browns could win the AFC North. When it comes to their value in SimNFL, the Browns are a very interesting team both now and in the future. Currently, the Browns are in a good position to give an investor win payouts while in the future offers them a higher price point if they can keep their core together.
The SimRavens are the seventh most expensive team in SimNFL and still offer investors a good return on investment. During the offseason, the Ravens got Lamar Jackson some more weapons while keeping the defense in tack. Just like the SimBrowns, the SimRavens offers investors a chance to get some good win-pays while increasing their worth overtime. While if the Ravens will keep up with the Browns is another story, or if they will even live up to the seventh highest price expectations, the SimRavens should be a good choice.
The SimSteelers are surprisingly the cheapest team in the AFC North and the 25th most expensive team in SimNFL. This is probably because of their late season collapse last season and the lack of faith in Ben Roethlisberger and the team after he retires. The Steelers have a ton of holes especially on the offensive line and on defense. They did draft Najee Harris in the first round of the draft to boost their run game but it may not be enough due to the offensive line. In SimNFL, the Steelers may offer some win payouts in the next couple seasons but after that not much. It may be smarter to hold onto them and hope in four to five years they go back to their dominant selves.
