Top 100 Roto Rankings: November 2019

by Ian Gooding on November 15, 2019


With a full month of hockey now in the books, there were changes a plenty in this month’s Roto Rankings compared to last month. Injuries have also factored in, with many key players falling down the rankings or even out of them entirely.

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.
