    • It’s not like the team rankings where I have a formula I use. Basically, I go through the top ~50 or so teams and look at their distribution of individual PPG for their best performances. I then try to balance the best player for the #1 team who may score a lower % of their team’s TU points compared with the best player for the #30 team who scored a much higher percentage of TU points.
