Ottoneu Power Rankings: August 2017

We are nearing the homestretch in the baseball and ottoneu season, and this will be the last in-season power rankings. The next time power rankings are released, they will be final 2017 results, and I plan on releasing the full team/league standings files for each format at that time as well.

You can find prior power rankings here: July, June, May , April, 2016 Final

The first ranking I’m going to present shows the top individual teams in all FanGraphs points leagues based on their Pace, which is a metric I calculate by taking each team’s current Pts/G and Pts/IP and multiplying them by their projected games (max of 1,944) and innings (max of 1,500). Also, please note that any teams/leagues from leagues with less than twelve teams are excluded from these rankings.

Top 20 FGPts Teams by Pace

20 347 Coastal Empire 17119.1 5.91 5.59 1,944 1,488 19,807

Note- there are 1,596 FGpts teams across 133 leagues.

Offensive scoring continues to outpace 2016 levels (driven in large part by the HR boom), as FGPts teams average 5.40 Pts/G (up from 5.29 Pts/G in August ’16), but just 4.72 Pts/IP (down from 4.95 Pts/IP in August ’16).

There is a new #1 team in the rankings, as Winnetka Bears rise from #3, and the former #1 RANDAL HANDSHAKE drops to #4.

Brinksmanship (last year’s #1 league) remains atop the league rankings this month as they look to repeat.

Up next, the SABR league power rankings. I’m only going to show the top five teams/leagues as there are much fewer SABR leagues than FanGraphs points leagues.

And the top five SABR leagues, using the same method I did for the FanGraphs points leagues.

Note- There are 204 teams and 17 leagues in the SABR points format.

Up next are the two rotisserie ottoneu formats, starting with the traditional 5×5 leagues. To calculate the top teams, I treated the entire population of teams as one big league, and gave every team points for every category based on where they ranked against every other team.
