Yahoo drafts

Postby Kelly Gruber » Mon Mar 08, 2004 12:55 am

I was looking at the yahoo rankings; there were 2: the o-rank and the rank. I know in the live draft they only sort by 1 of those. Do you know which one?

It would really help me because I would like Prior to be ranked 17 instead of 10 so maybe he'll slip to the 2nd round (I'm drafting with some pretty stupid people - which is OK cause the winner-it's to early to say it'll be me, oh what the hell it will be me!-gets 225 bucks)

First off, don't ever try to understand Yahoo's ranking system. :-D From what I understand, the O-rank is more of a multi-year average and the rank is his ranking for this year. I used to think that O-rank was the original rank at the beginning of the year to compare to the more current rank but they both change during the season. If someone was just letting the computer pre-rank their players and choose them for them, I would assume that they would go by the O-rank number. Confused yet?? :-D

Thanks, even though I still have more questions than answers about their ranking system.
