    For me, it’s the consensus rankings. Once you get a feel for which rankers excel at a specific position, you can really do some damage with the rankings. Anyone have a favorite tool here?

    I agree, consensus rankings are great! I usually start with JM’s article and go from there.

    It’s not an official tool, but for me it’s the conversation in the “NFL WEEK X” thread on the forum. The back and forth banter keeps me laughing through the week until Sunday morning.

    Notorious’ first look for NFL has become my go to, consensus rankings always help, especially for PGA/NBA for myself. I also am a big fan of Raybon’s rollout….so basically more articles than “tools”

    I would consider the articles as tools also. Anything that helps with the process. And yes, Raybon has a good article each week

    I love jm’s article and I love the projected ownership since im mostly a gpp player! I make my rankings for each position and use projected ownership to decide who I want to play and fade!

    I love the Expert Consensus. I normally wait until my cash lineups are done, before I take a look at it. There has been a few times this past MLB season where I completely overlooked someone, saw he was rated pretty highly, and ended up adjusting my lineup because of that.

    A lot of good stuff here, thanks guys. I am looking to get more involved and up my game..these tools everybody suggested here are very helpful. Keep them coming

    I start with JM’s article, then look at the consensus rankings and then build my first cash lineup draft. Once I have my foundation or core, then I like to read the correlations article, then comb twitter and RotoWorld to identify a couple sleepers with an edge to differentiate my core lineups. I often refer to the projected ownership when deciding between particular players. It’s all a process but I love it and RG just makes it all work!

    Snap counts, targets, touches, Defense vs Position, etc….love the sortable columns

    For me, the consensus rankings should be the best tool, but I often find the top ranked players are just the super expensive ones. In fact, often the vast majority of them are way above the average cost per player. This especially happened with MLB, where I swear the average cost per player each day in the FD rankings was at least $3600.

    I guess my point is that it’s not hard to list the expensive players – and it doesn’t really seem to be actually based on projected value (points/dollar), which should actually tend to force those expensive players to be ranked lower. I sort of feel like I’m not getting honest rankings.

    I think the rankings should be based on a combination of points/dollar, your expected ownership in that player, and your perception of a “good play”.
