Top 100 Roto Rankings – August 2019

by Ian Gooding on August 15, 2019

With the NHL on summer break, there hasn’t been much hockey news over the last month. However, we are still trying to fine-tune the Roto Rankings. Besides, at this time next month, many single-season drafts will already be in full swing.

We’ve added a date to the Comments column, so you can see how recently the changes have been made. You’ll even notice that there was a change at the top, which may reflect how many league drafts play out.

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%. In other words, this list is focused on the 2019-20 season, but not beyond. This list could also be used by keeper owners with a “win now” mentality.

These rankings are a work in progress, so please feel free to leave feedback below. I will take comments into consideration for the following month’s rankings. I may also explain certain ranking decisions in upcoming Ramblings.
