Negative - this is one of the biggest drawbacks of CBS in my opinion, especially when switching from Yahoo. While their stats are much more comprehensive (and allow you to generate custom reports), there is no concept of a ranking that you can use to sort players. I'm certainly no fan of Yahoo's O-Rank, but an actual rank is quite useful. I tried to create my own custom "dollar value" stat that would effectively do this and it almost worked, but there were glitches that I never was able to work out.
while it would add a bit of convenience, i actually kinda like that they don't have their own rankings... it actually forces me to look a bit deeper to find a free agent pick up rather than just picking up the highest ranked player. with all the stats they give you and the different time frames you can check, it makes it pretty easy to sort by most ABs to see which players have been getting the most playing time in the last week (or 2 weeks or month) and then go from there.
Actually, CBS does have a ranking system this year. They call it "roto value" and it is "calculated by a proprietary formula that takes into account a player's statistics in the ten standard Rotisserie categories".
