Inside Roto-Style Rankings

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

Back in August, four of the Rotoworld writers did our position ranks. Some things have changed since then like the Russell Westbrook injury, but you can see where some of us ranked our guys. 

 

Some of us are higher on the young guys, and others knocked down some of the veterans in a big way.

 

Again, these ranks were from August, so a lot has changed. Our top 200s will be changing along the preseason and reflect all the news and injuries to make adjustments.
