The best players in the SEC so far this season, according to the OAYP advanced metric.

Now that we’re through week six, in lieu of the usual weekly conference roundups, we’re releasing OAYP’s midseason all-conference teams. The roundups will resume next week.

As far as the all-conference teams, these obviously are comprised solely of the 2019 data, whereas the player rankings to this point have still been incorporating some 2018 numbers, though increasingly to a lesser degree.

For the uninitiated, OAYP’s individual player scores are a cross measure of value and efficiency. Similar to WAR in baseball, it displays the said value and efficiency of a given athlete, relative to the average player at their position.

Without further ado, OAYP’s top players in the league at each position, so far:
