If you are new to these rankings – keep in mind that these are for strictly points (goals, assists) dynasty leagues. It factors in wait times and likelihood for prospects, immediate payoff (for this season), their three-year expected peak (3YP), the offense potential of the team around them, injury risk and more. Also note that players within +/-5.0 rating points of each other should be considered equal and it’s not worth arguing about.
