Top 100 Roto Rankings: September 2019

by Ian Gooding on September 15, 2019


If you haven’t had a single-season draft yet, you’ve probably started ranking your players or perhaps even tried a mock draft or two. This month’s Roto Rankings have taken into account where the various league providers (Yahoo, ESPN, CBS, Fantrax) are ranking players, as well as your feedback. So they may come in handy for you as you rank your own players.  

The overall goalie ranks have been bumped up in order to account for the goalie rushes in drafts, where fantasy owners will want to secure this important position early on. Centers were the biggest fallers in the rankings, as this is usually the easiest position to fill on any league waiver wire.

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.
