Ottoneu June Power Rankings

My how time flies! We are already at the halfway point of the season, and the league races and overall power rankings are really starting to take shape. Here are links to the  April and May power rankings where I gave the history of these rankings and explained the methodology.

Without further ado, the FanGraphs points league team rankings (1,340 teams):

Top 10 FGPTS Teams by Pace
LgNum TeamName Points PPG PIP pGP pIp PACE
194 The Murder Boners 11,797.2 6.45 6.26 1,938 1,500 21,888
81 20,530 or Bust 11,422.2 6.39 6.14 1,938 1,499 21,588
430 Britton Yu Crazy Diamond 11,423.0 6.32 6.05 1,944 1,500 21,361
198 Blue Suede Schus 11,131.8 5.92 6.57 1,944 1,433 20,922
240 Miguel’s Caballeros 11,082.0 6.09 6.53 1,944 1,387 20,899
248 Piedmont Boll Weevils 11,338.6 6.42 5.80 1,944 1,442 20,847
207 King Kang 10,976.6 6.02 6.04 1,944 1,495 20,734
389 Smelly Pirate Hooker 10,955.0 6.03 6.31 1,940 1,427 20,705
52 Durham Tobacconists 10,958.0 6.22 5.93 1,897 1,500 20,693
32 The Yastrzemskinators 11,169.0 6.14 5.79 1,944 1,493 20,582

The #1 FGPTS team remains this same this month, but there was a fair bit of shakeup within the rest of the top ten. Last month ten teams were on pace to beat the FGPTS record of 20,530, and this month eleven teams are on pace to do so! I think it’s fair to say that the record will be broken by at least one team in 2016. Offense continues to surge as we reach the summer, with all FGPTS teams averaging 5.30 Pts/G, up from 4.92 Pts/G last year and 5.13 Pts/G just last month. Pitching continues to be down, with an average Pts/IP of 4.96 compared to 5.14 Pts/IP in 2015.

Here are the FGPTS league power rankings (112 leagues):

FGPTS League Power Rankings
lgNum LgName AvgRk Rnk+
649 Brinksmanship 439.6 134.6
347 MVP Baseball 2005 444.8 133.9
532 A Small Sample 474.5 129.4
93 ottobros 478.6 128.8
195 Wins Above Figgins 495.5 126.3
504 KyGentlemensClub 509.3 124.3
380 Don’t Be Chi 521.4 122.5
90 UZR Friendly 539.1 119.8
671 MLB 2k16 539.1 119.8
530 Ottoneu Champions 542.8 119.3

As a reminder, the AvgRk column represents the average overall rank of all teams in the league, with 672.48 representing the average league. The Rnk+ column basically scales the AvgRk against 672.48, so that the 134.6 Rnk+ of Brinksmanship means that the teams in that league are ranked 34.6% higher than you would expect from a perfectly average league.

Up next, the SABR league team power rankings (225 teams):

Top 5 SABR Teams by Pace
LgNum TeamName Points PPG P/IP pGP pIp PACE
301 SABRmagician✨ 10,849.5 6.21 5.91 1,944 1,390 20,284

456 The Folies-Bergère Barmaids 10,563.2 6.00 5.65 1,944 1,500 20,139
37 The Naturals 10,652.3 6.10 5.44 1,944 1,500 20,018
412 Surplus or Minus 10,518.1 6.03 5.60 1,944 1,455 19,873

And the top five SABR leagues, using the same method I did for the FanGraphs points leagues (19 leagues):

SABR League Power Rankings

186 Fantasy By the Book – An OttoNeu Experience 100.0 112.6
164 B. Selig Blue Ribbon Glee Club 103.0 110.0

Up next are the two rotisserie ottoneu formats, starting with the traditional 5×5 leagues. To calculate the top teams, I treated the entire population of teams as one big league, and gave every team points for every category based on where they ranked against every other team (499 teams):
