Current Rankings Question

Current Rankings Question

I am confused about current rankings and how Yahoo does it. I post two players for comparison. Why is Riley Smith ranked higher then Dzingle? It appears to me Dzingle is having a better year.

            G   A  +/-  PM  PP  SHP  SOG  FW  HIT  BLK

Smith   9   19  -1   4    12     1      105    3     25    23    Current Rank 195

Dzingle 17 14 -13  23  6      0        96   31    28    24    Current Rank 257

What are the scoring settings in your league and what timeframe are you using to compare these 2 players?

Re: Current Rankings Question

I think Dzingel is having a better year too.  I find that +/- carries a LOT of weight with Yahoo rankings.  I’m willing to bet that the top 10 available free agents (by rank) all have +/- of +15 or better.  I'd rather have Dzingel and his superior stats in 4 categories over Smith.  Your league also appears to count PPP, SHP which give an edge to Smith too.  Pretty sure the answer to your OP is +/- though....
