Weekly Rankings Update: Revamped TPOY

rankings trophy

Hello Daily Fantasy Sports fans! Welcome to this week’s edition of the Weekly Rankings Update. The biggest news of the week over here in Rankings Land is the revamped RotoGrinders Tournament Player of the Year. Due to the tremendous growth of the industry over the last year, the staff felt there needed to be some changes to the qualifications. Here are the new requirements:

50 Best Scores Count towards the TPOY Total – up from 30 in 2013
Minimum Prize Pool of $25,000 – up from $10,000 in 2013
Minimum of 25 Entrants

These new requirements should make for a much more exciting race coming down the stretch. And considering the massive prize pools we saw last year, and how they effected the final standings, we should see much of the same this year.

On to the rankings!

The biggest change we see in the new TPOY standings is that the Slam Dominator™ McJester moves to the top of our initial leader board. Behind him we have PrimeTime420 (Woooooooooooo), drolson22 and STLCardinals84 in a tight race for second place. All of these players except drolson22 have maxed their 50 qualifying scores, and our looking to improve upon their current standings. Probably the player most affected by the new changes rankings-wise is our good friend MSidla. The changes have dropped him down to 13th place, but he has only used 36 of his qualifying entries. I’m still predicting that Sidla will be near the top by the end of the year. As we saw last year, the massive NFL prize pools can change anything. Look for people to keep movin’ on up as the year progresses.

No movement in the NHL last week as the players were on the Olympic break. Will be interesting to see how the Rankings shift next week after the biggest NHL night of the year in DFS last night. Until next week, Alison Brie:

It’s the end of February, and soon we will be hitting Springtime and baseball. But until then, Condia has wrapped up our February Leaderboard with TrollForMVP in 2nd place. I can hear the smacking of rawhide on leather, the crack of the wooden bats. It’s almost March folks! SPRRRRRRRRRRING TRAINING!!!
