Ottoneu Power Rankings: July 2020

It has only been a couple weeks since this crazy 2020 season has begun, but I couldn’t wait any longer to debut the first version of this year’s ottoneu power rankings. I’ve posted these in the past over at RotoGraphs, but it has been a while since I’ve released a full set of power rankings. As a refresher, or for those of you new to these rankings, I’ll give a brief overview of how I prepare everything before I move on to the rankings themselves. Also, a quick note, these power rankings are based on the standings I pulled as of August 2nd, and I exclude any league without 12 active teams from both the team and league power rankings.

For FanGraphs points leagues, I calculate a PACE number, which is a metric I calculate by taking each team’s Pts/G and Pts/IP and multiplying them by their projected games (max of 720) and innings (max of 560). I’ve also included an adjusted PACE figure, which is just the calculated PACE scaled to a full 162 game season.

The average FGPts team has a 4.63 Pts/G and a 4.84 Pts/IP (as a comparison, in 2019 those averages were 5.54 Pts/G and 4.72 Pts/IP). There has been a drastic reduction in offense to start the year, I’ll be sure to highlight how that Pts/G average moves over the next two months.

For the league rankings, I simply take the average overall ranking of all teams in each league (LgPow), and for FGPts a perfectly average league would have a LgPow of 786.3 The Rnk+ column basically scales the LgPow against 786.3, so that the 122.1 Rnk+ of xprospects means that the teams in that league are ranked 22.1% higher than you would expect from a perfectly average league.

For the 5×5 and 4×4 team rankings, I calculate roto standings for each format as if the entire population of teams was one giant roto league (for example, with 828 5×5 teams, the team with the highest overall HRs would receive an 828 roto score for that category). The teams are ranked by their average Roto score across all categories.
