Each week, our Stats Department pours through the data from the past weekend’s games to compile a ranking for all of the teams playing in Association Leagues based on 5 distinct categories (Record, Overall Wins, Consistency, Point Percentage, Coaching Efficiency). Each category is the weighted and combined to give an overall Power Rank (PR) score. Teams’ PR scores have an inverse value, meaning the lower the score, the higher the team ranks – The PR scores can range from 15 (a perfect score) to 1200 (last in every category)(For a full description of each category and how it is weighted, please visit the new Stats FAQ page, found either at that link or as a sub-tab under the AF Stats menu tab.) The rankings are cumulative through to Week 17 measuring teams’ performances through the entire season.
Coming in at #2 on the Week 5 list, are the Kokomo Kings (LFC) (4-0-0), with a PR of 75, they are first in the league in the Association’s brand new Leatherheads Fantasy Conference. WRATH OF ODIN (4-0-0) debuts at #3 on the season’s first list with their PR of 95. A new list is published each week under the all-new AF Stats menu tab and you can view the full rankings of all 80 teams playing in Association Leagues under the AF Rankings sub-tab, complete with their stats in all ranking categories.
