QUIZ: Which Players Provide The Most Bang For Their Team's Buck?

See if you can pick out the most cost-effective option from each group of three players.

Posted on August 15, 2013, at 10:11 a.m. ET

Can you guess which player costs his team the least amount of money per play?

(We looked at salary and stats from the 2012 season for the NFL, the 2012-13 season for the NBA, and 2013 for MLB — prorated as of 8/12.)

  1. 1. Hits

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Goldschmidt has supplied his Diamondbacks hits at less than $3K a pop so far this season. Chris Davis is keeping it under $19K, and Alvarez a bit more than $5K.

  2. 2. Home Runs

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Among this group of highly-paid veterans, Young is getting paid almost $1.7MM per HR, which barely beats out Wells and Mauer, both near $1.8MM per.

  3. 3. Strikeouts

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Harvey only gets $2K for each trio of strikes. Masterson's banking more than 12 times that, and Darvish more than 16 times Matt's measly sum.

  4. 4. 3-Pointers

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    The west coast made it rain on the cheap last year. Klay tossed them in from range for just $10K, while his teammate Curry was doing it for a bit more at $14.5K. Meanwhile the Rookie of the Year was under $17K per trey for the Blazers.

  5. 5. Points

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Parsons made less than a million dollars last year, so his cost per point was only $755. Compare that to the scoring title holder, KD, at $6.5K or Superman's replacement in Orlando at $1.7K, and someone obviously deserves a raise.

  6. 6. Assists

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Vasquez dished it out at $1.7K per assist. Holiday's dimes still just cost a modest $4K, while Conley's were $15K.

  7. 7. Interceptions

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Sherman stepped into the spotlight last year with 8 picks at $64K each. Stevie also had 8 at a close $68K. Jennings beat them both in number with 9, but each of his came at more than $150K.

  8. 8. Tackles

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    The hundred-million-dollar man was actually cost effective? In this group of big-contract vets he was, at $200K per tackle. Woodson's were a bulky $300K, and Freeney's an outright ridiculous $1.6MM.

  9. 9. Yards

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Morris ran the rock for chump change, making just $83 a foot! Ridley got twice that much, but AP made $1.6K for each of his almost 7,000 ft.

  10. 10. Points

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Bryant's extra points and field goals cost $20K a piece. Foster and Rodgers had to work a lot harder for their 6-point scores, of course, but they were amply rewarded at $78K and $37K per point, respectively.
