The 2016 ottoneu season has come and gone, so it’s time to take a look at the final power rankings of the season. How many teams broke the FGPts record? Where did your league(s) end up in the rankings? Let’s find out!
Here are the final FanGraphs points league team rankings (1,340 teams):
|194||The Murder Boners||1,937||1,524.2||6.15||6.19||21,349.4|
|81||Smell the Glove – None more black||1,942||1,509.2||6.38||5.84||21,204.8|
|430||Britton Yu Crazy Diamond||1,953||1,518.2||6.27||5.77||21,004.7|
|248||Piedmont Boll Weevils||1,944||1,517.2||6.29||5.75||20,953.1|
|240||Miguel’s Caballeros ??||1,946||1,510.2||5.92||6.01||20,599.2|
|52||Lucky Strikes ??||1,949||1,528.2||5.70||6.14||20,491.4|
|26||Spa City Thoroughbreds||1,948||1,515.2||6.10||5.60||20,366.7|
A couple quick notes- the games played column is calculated by myself and not taken directly from the standings so there may be some rounding or other errors causing some teams to show more than 1,944 games, and these rankings are obviously no longer based on pace projected points but rather actual final season points.
When all was said and done there ended up being six teams eclipsing the prior record of 20,530, with one more team just barely missing that mark. 2016 FGPts teams averaged 5.25 Pts/G (up from 4.92 in 2015) and 4.94 Pts/IP (down from 5.14 in 2015). Scoring was up across the board in 2016, as the average champion this year scored 19,227.3 points, up from the 2015 average champion score of 18,784.40. There were similar increases at every single standings position.
Here are the FGPTS league power rankings (112 leagues):
|532||A Small Sample||427.9||135.7|
|347||MVP Baseball 2005||456.8||131.4|

|653||Good Sir Timmy||511.4||123.2|
|389||>League Name Goes Here<||538.7||119.1|
Brinksmanship holds on to their #1 position, and while the rest of the top five remained the same there were shakeups in the remainder of the top ten.
Up next, the SABR league team power rankings (225 teams):
|176||??SABR Tooth Tiger??||1,948||1,505.0||5.90||5.44||19,677.5|

|186||Fantasy By the Book-An OttoNeu Experience||103.6||109.5|
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):
|678||Free Tony Bosch||1,081||347||1,096||170||0.277||1,498.0||96||134||1,556||3.1||1.1||427.9|
|642||Grand Rapids Wolverines||1,095||318||1,095||131||0.281||1,489.1||101||124||1,524||3.3||1.1||413.5|
|139||Ridgefield Spudders (Chad Young)||1,134||328||1,144||154||0.274||1,511.0||109||98||1,606||3.6||1.2||400.2|
And the 5×5 league rankings based on the same average team ranking method as previously discussed (42 leagues):
|495||Ultimate Foul Balls||179.6||123.4|
|540||$100 Old School Hardball||186.0||120.6|
|450||Hughes Your Daddy||193.7||117.4|

|139||FanGraphs Experts League||204.9||112.6|
|181||Donnie Kelly Baby!||212.9||109.2|
Last, but not least, here are the rankings for the top teams in ottoneu 4×4 (224 teams):
|1||Last Years Leftovers||1,088||324||0.343||0.476||1,493.0||1,548||0.89||3.23||1.11||195.1|

And the rankings for the top 4×4 leagues (19 leagues):
