Ok, my league i commish uses POWER RANK as the the basis of determining the rookie draft slots of the non 6 playoff teams.

Now while i see the power rank on the page and we use it, i often wonder how is it formulated. ??

I have some teams (obviously strong teams) that are 0-4 but are nowhere near the bottom of the power rank. I agree with this as this team has fallen on tuff times with lineups or played the wrong teams on those weeks.

anyway, this is what i got from MFL when i put in power rank from the help section:

This report (sorted by the power rank) contains the following information for each franchise:

• PF - Points For, total points scored year-to-date.

• PP - Potential Points, total points a franchise could have scored if it had started a perfect lineup each week.

• Eff - Efficiency rating, or PF divided by PP, expressed as a percentage.

• Bench Points - Total points scored by all bench players.

• Max PF - Maximum points scored in one week.

• Min PF - Minimum points scored in one week.

• Coulda Won - For each week of the season, compare your "potential points" versus your opponents actual points - you will get one in this column for each game that you could have won a by starting a better lineup. In other words, if you had started your best lineup each week, this is the number of extra wins you could have received throughout the season.

• Woulda Lost - For each week of the season, compare your actual points versus your opponents "potential points" - you will get one in this column for each game that you would have lost if your opponent had started a better lineup. In other words, if your opponent had started his best lineup each week, this is the number of extra losses you would have received throughout the season.

• All-play Record - The number of wins, losses, and ties the franchise would have if it played all teams each week of the season.

• Power Rank - A formula designed to give an alternate view of the 'best' franchise in the league. This number is arrived at like this:

points_per_week_per_starter = A

points_per_week_per_nonstarter = B

all_play_wins_per_week = C

actual_wins = D

division_wins = E

Power Rank = A+B+C+D+E

Power Rank As Of Week - Click on any of the links for previous week in the season to view this report for any past week.

Sort By - Use the default Power Ranking score for each franchise as the sort criterion for this report or switch to one of the optional "All Play-Record", "Coulda Won", or "Woulda Lost" columns for alternately sorted report views

Doesnt give much of a breakdown of how they actually give the points to make up your power rank score.

It does show me this: Power Rank = A+B+C+D+E But how many points you get for each category....

I dunno, if anyone has a better handle on this help a fellow brotha out.

 
I could never figure this out.

In one of my leagues doing the worst I ever did in FF record or points wise.

I'm like scoring less then 95 points a week (4 weeks)

and the power ranking states I coulda won 3 shoulda lost 0

Can't understand this..I suck in this league really the pits I ever did.. and others way over me in points.

And yes was one of those with Brady in the 1st round and Colston in the 2nd.... maybe this is the key...it goes by who you really drafted! I don't know just guessing.

It's just adding up the numbers in those 5 categories. So it's Your Total Points Scored / (# Games * # Starters) + Your Bench Total Points scored / (# Games * # Bench Players) + # of all play wins / # of Games + # of actual wins + # of div wins.For example, here's the ranking for the top team in my league:

[code=

(429/(4*13)) + (293/(4*13)) + (30 / 4) + 3 + 2 = 26.38

Could of won/Should of lostThis is how many games you could have won if you started your highest scoring players at each position each week. and Should of lost, if your opponent had started their best lineup.

Coulda Won means if you picked your best possible lineup that week, then you "Coulda Won" that game.So if you have 3 Coulda Won, then you blew 3 potential Wins.
