We wanted to see which NBA rookies are overachieving and underachieving thus far this season, so we came up with a simple tool to measure it.  Take the player’s draft position, subtract their Wins Produced ranking (courtesy of Boxscore Geeks), and see who is overproducing (and underproducing) based on their draft spot.
