Top 100 Roto Rankings – February 2020

Ian Gooding

2020-02-16

Injury issues factor into the February Roto Rankings, with a half-dozen mainstays falling out of the rankings because of injuries that will cost them either the entire rest of season or a significant portion of it.

That has resulted in several new entries into the top 100, in particular three new goalies. The goalie position has easily been the most volatile when it comes to rankings with many of the biggest risers and fallers. By comparison, many top-level scorers have remained status quo throughout the season.

Keep in mind that these are single-season rankings for a head-to-head or rotisserie league using the following settings: G, A, +/-, PPP, SOG, HIT, W, GAA, SV%. In other words, this list is focused on the 2019-20 season, but not beyond. This list could also be used by keeper owners with a "win now" mentality.
