After an icy Week Seven, only one team remains undefeated: the AFC's Negligent Discharges. Meanwhile, previously winless teams Whackers and Orangebloods finally put a 1 in the win column. Here are your standings and Week Seven OPR rankings.
And here are the Week Seven OPR rankings. To recap, OPR stands for OIL Power Rating. It is based on the power rating created by the Oberon Mt. Fantasy Football League, which has been featured on ESPN's Fantasy Focus podcast and is used by many leagues across the country. From their website:
The OIL's adjusted power rating takes everything measured by the Oberon Mt. Power Rating Formula and then calculates how each team compares to the rest of the league for that season. So, what is measured is not raw data that fluctuates by season but, instead, how much better or worse a team is than the average team for that season. But first, the baseline raw power rating needs to be calculated.
The Oberon Mt. Power Rating Formula is best explained by its creator:
(avg score x 6) + [(high score + low score) x 2] +[ (winning % x 200) x 2]
The OIL has taken the Oberon Mt. Power Rating Formula and added one wrinkle to better compare teams from different seasons. For example, a 2018 team might have the same record as a 2010 team but more points scored. On its face, the 2018 team is superior. But, if the league-wide scoring in 2018 is significantly more than it was in 2010, the 2010 team may have been more dominant. That is what we aim to discover using the adjusted OIL Power Rating. The formula for the adjusted OPR is:
