Inside Points League Rankings

by Mike Gallagher
Updated On: October 4, 2018, 4:04 pm ET

If you were wondering how we came up with the initial points rankings, here's how four of us came up with our position ranks.

 

As always, we will be adjusting our rankings based on any news, injury, coach/GM/player quote, or strong/weak preseason play.

 

I'll add some commentary from the others as it trickles in.

 

For now, here's a look at how we ranked each position. Note: Rankings were done last month, so guys like Russell Westbrook would be moved down (it has already been reflected in the rankings).
