August Top 100 Roto Rankings

by Gates Imbeau on August 15, 2018


Welcome back to the Top 100 Roto.

This edition heats up with some changing of guard.

Slotting just outside of the top 50, you will find fresh faces in Tom Wilson and J.T. Miller. Both players inked hefty contracts in the offseason and with that comes the expectation to produce.

Wilson is a powerhouse in PIM and hits. A gem in roto leagues to balance out categories. If he can keep those numbers high while chipping even more so offensively, he will easily climb up the ranks. I would like to see him clear 40 points and 150 SOG in order to jump up into the top 50.

Miller saw a boost in many categories last season and is trending to do well again this upcoming season. The Tampa forward is a sneaky value add to any fantasy team, given his decent peripherals from a 60-point player. The opportunity to make some noise in the rankings will come if Miller can build upon his SOG, PIM and hits.

On the flipside, Max Pacioretty and Jeff Carter get some market correction. While both still have the value to be Tier 2 producers, they are risky acquisitions. Take caution when drafting either.

Until next month, enjoy!
