The Rotobahn 500 (updated 9/5)

Finally!  The rankings have grown, and now include team DEF and, as requested, even PKs.  The 500 is going to be updated often until drafting ends next Wednesday so check back when your draft is upon you for the most up-to-date rankings.  The individual positional rankings may lag behind a bit, so always come here first as the cheat sheets and the 500 will always be current.

For those of you who are new to the site, The 500 is designed to be a great drafting tool.  If you use the search box just above the table and to the right, you can search the database at light speed—as you type.  Just start typing what you are looking for and that player or group of players will pop up.  Try keywords like “sleeper”, “handcuff” or “ceiling” and see what you get.  If you want a specific player, just start typing his first or last name.  Type in a team abbreviation to see a specific depth chart.

It might sound unexciting, but having quick info, right at your fingertips, can be quite useful when you are under the gun in a live draft.  Ever try to search for player info while you are on the clock?  You can actually do that when using The 500.

If you want Rotobahn’s take on a player, you are never more than a few keystrokes away and the entire page is preloaded.  No waiting for page loads!

Try it out!

The rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.  The overall ranking is the far left column.  The second column, marked P-Rank, gives you the player’s positional ranking.

Rotobahn August content:


***UPDATE***  Le’Veon Bell’s situation is evolving in real time, so make sure you have the most up-to-date info when you draft.  No way am I taking him top 4 no matter what, but he’s still viable at 5 and beyond–depending on your tolerance for risk. 


It’s also crucial that you move PIT RB John Conner up in your ranks–even higher than I did in the afternoon update.  He’s going to be a strong RB2 option or better for as long as Bell remains out.  This is fluid, so be careful not to go crazy, but I’m looking at him once 100 players are gone.


More on Bell from ESPN (the holdout could extend as long as Week 10)


I have updated a lot of the players based on the most recent injury info.  If you search the keyword “update”, you’ll find all of them.
