TSN TV Schedule TSN2 TV Schedule

These Roto Rankings are an attempt to provide a generic fantasy baseball value based on this season's player projections, taking standard 5x5 categories (R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, W, SV, SO, ERA, WHIP) and position scarcity into consideration.

The rankings operate under the following assumptions:
- 12 Team league - 23-player roster including: 2 C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, CI, MI, 5 OF, UTIL, 9 P

As each league's rules differ, or a player's position eligibility changes, a player's roto value can be affected and different than this standardized version. In deeper leagues, for example, players at scarce positions (ie. pitching, second base) could have greater value.

So, what's the difference between Roto Rankings and the TSN.ca NHL Player Rankings?

The roto value in the right-hand column is effectively a player's value over an average player at that position and can provide some basic guidelines on value to this point in the season.

If you were considering a two-for-two trade, then you could check the roto values on these rankings to have some idea about the value of each player's total contribution. It's not set in stone, but a reasonable guideline.

Of course, the roto rating is not going to be an absolute value for any player. There will be many factors to consider (hot and cold streaks, improving or declining play, increasing or decreasing playing time, injuries, unsustainable batting average on balls in play etc.) when trying to determine if a player's roto value represents an accurate assessment of his value going forward. And the value going forward is what is most important.

400 players goes deeper than standard size leagues, to be sure, but those in deep leagues can at least have a ballpark idea where certain players are currently ranked, relative to others.
