Welcome to the RDB rankings archive. To give you an idea of where these rankings are going, we are now using "scouting ranks," i.e. we use our judgment and thorough discussion to determine where we think the teams ought to be ranked. As you know if you visit this site regularly we like to keep things as analytical as possible, therefore we are currently constructing a mathematical approach to determine the weekly rankings. For those of you who still swear to scouts over sabermetrics there is no need to fear, we are using ESPN and CBS scouting ranks within our formulaic structure. We hope to construct a process that is amenable to future changes and improvements. Thanks for reading and your comments are welcome.
