League-specific rankings and projections for 2021-2022 – The Athletic



Fantasy Hockey season has finally arrived and that means it’s time to start preparing for your draft.

For those who have followed my fantastic work over the past few years, you are probably familiar with the very sophisticated spreadsheet that I create every year, a spreadsheet that allows for fully customizable rankings to suit the odd way your league is set up. . Last year was the first year they were available at The Athletic and they’re back this season, as is the little preamble before it comes to the merchandise.

If you are a veteran of this sheet, there is no need to read any further as it is mostly the same sheet as in previous years. If you are new, please read on to understand how it all works.

Here’s the bottom line: Most hockey leagues are different from each other. There are leagues by points, by category and by rotation. There are leagues where goals count a little more than assists, and some where they are even. There are somewhat simpler leagues that only look at points, and leagues with all the stats available under the sun. There are leagues with plus-minus and PIM (yuck), and there are leagues that are not blocked in 1998. The point is that your league is not the same league as the next person’s and c t is a very important point when it comes to research and ranking. . In fantasy hockey, it’s not one size fits all, and depending on any ranking – no matter how smart the person writing it is – could already be your first mistake.

Other rankings are great for standard leagues or for research purposes, but they may not apply directly to your own league. That’s why I created this spreadsheet in the first place, to create an easy way for any fantasy hockey manager to have their own ranking that actually matches their league’s scoring system and format.
