ESPN Rankings = Razzball Comparisons

Postby SwaggerJackers » Sat Feb 08, 2014 2:52 pm

I posted this in the comments last night but figured I'd share here as well in case anyone was curious.

ESPN released their official Top 300 rankings. Some huge discrepancies from these Razzrankings for anyone to exploit who uses ESPN:

Player: Razz Rank / ESPN Rank
Bautista 14 / 47
Pujols 12 / 52
Segura 28 / 73
Myers 47 / 81
Rizzo 60 / 106
Cobb 54 / 121
Gyorko 88 / 156
Salazar 123 / 180
Sonny Gray 101 / 182
Liriano 70 / 197
Brad Miller 143 / 299
10 Team Auction Roto, 5 Keepers
Batting: HR, OBP, R, RBI, SB
Pitching: WHIP, ERA, K, SV, QS

2B: Cano ($21)
OF: Bautista ($10), Gomez ($11), Myers ($4)

SP: Jo-Fer ($4)

Some crazy ones there...

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.

If those rankings stay that way we'll make some money come drafting season. Does ESPN tweak/alter their rankings much or is that pretty much it?

Going the other way with it;


Ellsbury 7/30
Carlos Gomes 17/50
Posey 40/92
Hamels 44/126
Yadi Molina 50/170
Mauer 62/221
Aramis Ramirez 79/179
Lucroy 91/216
Prado 114/207
Daniel Murphy 121/287
V-Mart 138/280

And so it goes

As Grey so often says, don't overpay for catchers.

and yet, every league i've ever been in (I don't play in the hyper competitive leagues some of you do), i will always have that guy that will draft a Dan Haren or a C.C. Sabathia cause he remembered that great month he gave him 4 years ago...

This was one of my favorite posts they had last year when drafting, it gave me multiple targets scattered throughout the draft which let me wait on certain positions and fill others that were going around their ADP.

Hope there is another official one this year :)
