Who Sharks are Starting – Week 5

The Who Should I Start forum here at is busy as ever lately. To help you set your lineups, this is 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.

The numbers are

a measure of strength on a scale that varies with the number of leagues.  Lists include all individual offense, defense and special teams positions. Some lists may be incomplete this early in the week before lineups are submitted. These rankings were compiled Thursday evening, but because the lineups will change, I’ll post an update Saturday afternoon. 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.
