Top 100 Roto Rankings – September 2020

Ian Gooding

2020-09-15

With the Stanley Cup Final now very close, we've had a chance to learn more about many players. Some of which deserve a bump in value, some of which need to be bumped down the rankings.

Here are the Roto Rankings adjusted for September. Normally this is the month in which many drafts are taking place, but fantasy owners will need to wait just a little longer to happen. At least we have more time to think about our rankings. They're far from complete for the 2020-21 season, as free agent signings and trades will also need to be factored in.

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%.

Are there any players that you believe are ranked too high or too low? Did we miss anyone in the top 100, or is there a player there that probably shouldn't be? Let us know in the comments below, and we will consider your feedback when compiling next month's rankings.
