Top 100 Roto Rankings: October 2019

by Ian Gooding on October 15, 2019


We can now create rankings based on real games! So now that we are two months into the season, there are a few movers and shakers in this month’s version of the Roto Rankings, in particular the player that now sits at number one. However, we haven’t made a ton of changes, simply because it is too early to change projections on most players.  

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.
