Who Sharks Are Starting – Week 5 – Updated

The Who Should I Start forum here at is busy as ever lately. To help you set your lineups, this is an
update of the first release of a new ranking system that draws straight from the actual lineups of over 30 leagues at including official leagues, and leagues formed by members of the forum community.

Based on feedback from the first release, here’s what you need to know:

  • Players are ordered by strength
  • A player’s score is a measure of strength that varies with the number of lineups in the calculation. The highest-ranked punter has a lower score than the highest-ranked runningback because because fewer leagues use punters. In other words, the sample size is built into the scores, and more samples (to a point) means a more accurate picture of the collective Tank Brain. Mmmmmm… Brains…
  • This ranking does not currently account for league scoring, but most of the leagues represented are PPR
  • Rankings were last updated Saturday, October 4th at 3:00pm ET


This is a new system, and I encourage your feedback. Stop into the forum and let me know what you think and what you’d like to see.
