TPX Top 200 Player Rankings

For those of you new to the site, these are not draft rankings, but rather player value rankings.  Player values are calculated on a per-game basis by taking into account production in the following categories: goals, assists, penalty minutes, hits, power play points, shots on goal, and to a lesser extent plus/minus, blocked shots and short handed points.  Use a combination of value rankings, average draft positions and knowing your league tendencies to put together a loaded team, from first pick to last.

This will also show clearly if a player is on the rise, on the decline, or a steady source of production.

Patreon subscribers will receive custom rankings to perfectly match your league settings.

The values are weighted over 3 years of production for consistency: 50% of their value from 2016-17, 30% from 2015/16, and 20% from 2014/15.  With the exception of rookies and sophomores.  Here is the first top 200 player rankings list of the 2017/18 fantasy hockey season…
