Ottoneu Power Rankings: July 2017

It’s once again time for a macro level view of the ottoneu landscape, and as of the end of July the teams involved in championship races are well known. Let’s take a look at the top performing teams and leagues:

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

The first ranking Iโ€™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 teamโ€™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

20 153 Graham’s Neubies 13,091.6 5.74 5.67 1,944 1,500 19,664

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 5.36 Pts/G (up from 5.23 Pts/G in July โ€™16), but just 4.71 Pts/IP (down from 4.92 Pts/IP in July โ€™16). Overall scoring is still down, as three teams project over 20,500 points and only seven are pacing over 20,000 points.

There is a new #1 team in the rankings, as RANDAL HANDSHAKE rises from #4, and the former #1 Gimme All Yasmani drops one spot to #9. Rochester Grangers had the biggest rise, going from unranked last month to #4. Mookie Betts and the TINSTAAP GANG had the biggest fall, going from #9 last month (and #1 two months ago) to unranked. All told nine teams in the top ten are repeats from last month, as well as fifteen teams in the top twenty.

Up next, the SABR league power rankings. Iโ€™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.

5 186 Rock and Fire 99.0 103.5

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

Up next are the two rotisserie ottoneu formats, starting with the traditional 5ร—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.

If be curious to see where my 5×5 league (101) ranks in the power rankings. I imagine bottom third.
