|How a 1 year $9 million contract is considered equal to 3 years and $18 million. Or $8 million guaranteed in one year versus $11 million guaranteed over three.|

it's just a ranking that slots the contracts in based on a few different factors.
AAV is the first factor so the initial comp pick list is just a list from highest to lowest AAV. So 9m was ahead of 6m.
once the season begins playing time and some other factors come in that re-adjust all the rankings (and further changes the rankings depending on which gains/losses cancel each other out).
then you get the comp pick associated with where the contracts rank.
so if initially by aav among qualifiers:
engrams contract ranked 10th,
and glowinskis ranked 20th,
and carters ranked 23rd,
initially glowinski canceled out the carter pick because they were closer together.
if playing time and other changes pushed glowinski's up to rank 13th and engrams stayed at 10th then the 2 became close enough to cancel each other out. it sounds like glowinski is in a borderline zone in between the value of 2 contracts the nyg lost and it could go either way.
those are made up numbers just to illustrate the concept.
