no, O-rank is yahoo's rank based on a given formula that they have in place for standard 5x5 roto. The rank is the cumulative statistical weight of any given players performance during only this season relative to the other players, but again is based on standard 5x5 roto. Yahoo doesn't rerank players based on your leagues custom settings, the yahoo rankings are generic across the board.

thanks for the help. i hate that a few people in my league go based off a lot of what yahoo rankings say.

don't hate. it's not a bad thing (for you) that people in your league base everything on yahoo's o-ranks. You can make some lopsided deals with them if they only care about o-ranks.

I can further clarify...

O-Rank, or Overall Rank, is a rank that combines statistics from the past few years, combined with some hand-tuning, to try to provide a generally useful rank.

The other rankings are purely statistic-based for the time period you are viewing (last season, last month, last week).

In both cases, rankings assume our default 5x5 categories, and our default public league sizes. O-Rank is more subjective; you could consider that a good or bad thing. For example, no rookie can possibly score well in the previous seasons season ranks, because they have no stats. But the O-Rank may hand tune to elevate them. In the end they are just different, and both hopefully useful, tools; neither one can tell the full story.

I guess it hasn't been said yet, either: if you have looked at the statistical rankings in the past, and found them dubious, take another look. I pushed our new ranking code for baseball last week sometime, and I think you'll find the statistical ranks to be more in line with conventional thinking now. It will be described in some detail on the Yahoo! Sports Blog sometime soon; that post got swept up in all the March Madness hubbub :-)

Enjoy...
