2013 NHL Fantasy Hockey Top 201, Rankings Update: Through Week 5

After six weeks, we at The Fantasy Fix wanted to update our rankings for fantasy hockey by re-gifting our top 200! Instead of multiple multiple ranking sets, TFF now has a consensus table for you.

Like any other season, a lot has changed, but not necessarily all of it is with superstars or surprising. A team such as the Philadelphia Flyers has played bad enough to where all players on the team that are considered fantasy-relevant have tumbled down out rankings. The same can be said for players on Colorado or Tampa Bay, who have played well to start the season.

As always, we want your feedback. Comment below, or ask The Fantasy Fix writers @JoshKay_Fantasy and @jeffrotull44.

Risers

Logan Couture- San Jose Sharks: The Logan Couture coming out party has arrived in fantasy hockey. Couture has 15 points in 14 games, and is providing fantasy owners with even strength and power play points. Couture’s rise in the rankings has been just one of many for the San Jose Sharks. Many forwards and defensemen have risen and have been added to the top 200 from one of the west’s best teams.

Semyon Varlamov– Colorado Avalanche: Along with Ben Bishop, Varlamov has taken fantasy by storm this season and their contributions reflect their ranks. Varly may have more than just pucks to deal with after being arrested over an alleged domestic dispute, but until action is taken he appears to be a must-start.

Fallers

Nail Yakupov– Edmonton Oilers: The Edmonton Oilers have slipped their way to the bottom of the west standings (again) and Yakupov’s quiet start is a glaring issue. One goal, three points, and a plus/minus of minus-12 are far from expectations for the slumping sophomore.

Brad Marchand– Boston Bruins: Marchand’s role on the checking line has affected his ability to put the puck in the net. Boston has had some slumping players, but Marchand’s failures have cost him nearly 50 spots on our forward rankings, and drops him towards the end of the top 200.

Explanation of the Rankings:

We believe that after five weeks of the 2013-2014 NHL season that two things are quite clear with regards with positions: defense is incredibly shallow at the back end, as is the goaltending position.

How to use these rankings:

The valuation system we use is based off a ESPN standard league scoring system that uses these categories: Goals, Assists, Plus/Minus, Penalty Minutes, Shots on Goal, Average Time-On-Ice, Power-Play Points, Wins, Save Percentage and Goals-against Average.

We dive into our analysis of these rankings on our Sixth Podcast episode which will be out tomorrow morning!
