Top 100 Roto Rankings – October 2020

Ian Gooding

2020-10-15

The free agency period has begun, with a few notable Top 100 Roto Rankings players changing teams. Alex Pietrangelo, Taylor Hall, Torey Krug, and Jacob Markstrom all found new homes as a result of the free agency period. Their additions cause a fantasy ripple not only for themselves, but for other players around them.

As the offseason continues, we will dive deeper into players that may be affected by all of the offseason activity. By that point, it will be time to transition into 2020-21 fantasy draft rankings.

Speaking of which, we don't know when exactly that season will start. A later start date (ie. February) means it's more likely that Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak are ready for the season following offseason surgery. Both Bruins have been moved down the rankings, as a rumored January 1 start would mean that both are on track to miss the start of the season. A December start, which seems highly optimistic at this point, would mean that both miss considerable time. The number of games will also factor into how much time they miss.

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.
