Ottoneu Power Rankings: July 2016

We are now two thirds of the way through the season, and only a month out from the ottoneu trade deadline, so league races have narrowed down quite a bit and every move from here on out becomes critically important. Here is the link to last month’s rankings, which also includes links to the other rankings this season if you want to look at how things have changed.

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

Top 10 FGPTS Teams by Pace
LgNum TeamName Points PG PIP pGP pIp PACE
194 The Murder Boners 14,583.6 6.25 6.25 1,915 1,500 21,341
81 20,530 or Bust 14,162.5 6.45 5.94 1,927 1,484 21,244
248 Piedmont Boll Weevils 14,283.1 6.38 5.71 1,944 1,500 20,968
430 Britton Yu Crazy Diamond 13,952.1 6.21 5.93 1,944 1,476 20,825
120 Vinegar Strokes 14,008.3 6.27 5.58 1,944 1,500 20,559
52 Durham Tobacconists 13,790.7 6.10 5.99 1,894 1,500 20,540
240 Miguel’s Caballeros 13,620.2 5.92 6.38 1,944 1,394 20,401
184 The Gold Standard 13,501.9 5.81 6.11 1,944 1,458 20,205
530 Drunk Dave Stewart 13,466.5 5.94 5.91 1,938 1,470 20,200
198 Blue Suede Schus 13,506.0 5.76 6.43 1,944 1,400 20,198

Once again the #1 team remains the same, and all four months of the power rankings have had the same team at the top of the heap. Last month eleven teams were on pace to beat the FGPTS record of 20,530, but that number has slipped this month to only six. It still looks likely that at least one team will break the record this season. Offense continues to be the story this year. with all FGPTS teams averaging 5.23 Pts/G, up from 4.92 Pts/G last year but down a bit from the 5.30 Pts/G just last month. Pitching continues to be down, with an average Pts/IP of 4.97 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 417.5 137.4
347 MVP Baseball 2005 449.4 132.6
532 A Small Sample 461.2 130.8
93 ottobros 468.0 129.8
195 Wins Above Figgins 493.8 125.9
504 KyGentlemensClub 495.7 125.6
380 Don’t Be Chi 516.5 122.5
653 Good Sir Timmy 516.8 122.5
100 50,000 ottoneu Leagues Under the Sea 525.6 121.1
671 MLB 2k16 537.6 119.3

Each of the top seven leagues remains the same this month, headlined once again by Brinskmanship (which was the subject of a recent article by Trey Baughn).

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

Top 5 SABR Teams by Pace
LgNum TeamName Points P/G P/IP pGP pIp PACE
37 The Naturals 13,232.0 6.10 5.35 1,934 1,500 19,822
301 SABRmagician✨ 13,296.1 6.03 5.71 1,944 1,418 19,816
176 SABR Tooth Tiger? 13,196.0 5.91 5.53 1,944 1,485 19,703
456 The Folies-Bergère Barmaids 13,091.2 5.74 5.73 1,925 1,499 19,637
186 Napalm Bombs 12,961.8 5.85 5.23 1,944 1,500 19,217

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

SABR League Power Rankings
LgNum LgName AvgRk Rnk+
25 Super Serious Fantasy Baseball 87.7 123.4
159 Cooperstown-The Jack O’Ryan Memorial League 97.5 114.8
571 Effectively Wild (Dynasty) 99.8 112.8
164 B. Selig Blue Ribbon Glee Club 101.9 111.0
186 Fantasy By the Book-An OttoNeu Experience 102.3 110.7

Unfortunately I had some issues running my scripts for the 4×4 and 5×5 leagues, so I don’t have those rankings completed as this article is published, but I will update as soon as I get them finished (likely Friday night).

Feel free to leave any comments or questions about these rankings!
