Ouch. That's all I have to say about my performance last week. If I could put myself in the column below under "Losers" that'd be ideal, as I dropped a number of ranks in my effort to bottle lightening and jump over those picking the chalk. Speaking of making the cut, here's how important it is to be a successful in my rankings: of the Top-15 for my power rankings, there are a total of three missed cuts combined over their last six starts. Though missed cuts don't necessarily preclude a player from winning, as Camilo Villegas demonstrated last week, for season long games, consistency matters more than wins sometimes. For DFS, though, my rankings may over weight cuts.



Through mysticism, wisdom, arbitrary numbers pulled from thin air, and some serious number crunching, I assign each player a number, called The Aggregate, each week. That number, out of 100 with lower being better, is a collection of rankings and statistics that generally tell how a player has performed in the recent past and, for fantasy teams, can indicate whether is player is getting hot or cooling off. As I update my Excel Spre- *ahem*- Ancient Book of Knowledge with each week's performances, a differential is generated based on where they were, and where they may be going. One thing you'll notice, based on how the system works, is that the week's winner may not be the top mover. For my power rankings, I take this aggregate and combine it with past performance at that tournament to find my list.

Included below are my top 10 players overall, as well. Some of these players may appear here but not my Power Rankings, depending on how their tournament history affects their positioning and whether they're playing this week. This Top 10 should provide clearer insight as to how a player has been performing over the recent past.
