Top 100 Roto Rankings: August 2021

2021-08-15

Now that the free agent frenzy and main trade period have passed, we are now in the dog days of the offseason. Some of the offseason signings have resulted in major swings in value for certain players. As you can see in the Change column, the greatest swings in value (positive or negative) are from goalies.  

You could use these rankings if you somehow have a draft tomorrow or want to get an early start on evaluating players, but these rankings are hardly final. Expect these rankings to be updated further throughout the offseason so they can eventually be used for 2021-22 drafts.     

From reader feedback, we have added a Position column. At this time we will not differentiate between C, LW, and RW, simply using a forward (F) position instead.

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%. These rankings are still preliminary rankings for 2021-22 single-season drafts and are different from keeper rankings.

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.
