Power Index


Power Index

Under the stats tab one can access the Power Ranking of a particular league. Teams are ranked according to the "power index". What is the formula for that rating? Or rather, how is the power index determined?

Re: Power Index

I don’t recall the exact formula but it considers wins and also runs scored and runs allowed. Runs allowed is given slightly more weight since it assumes a team with a better staff is better equipped to win long term.

Re: Power Index

According to ESPN,
The basic formula is 25% team winning percentage, 50% opponents' average winning percentage, and 25% opponents' opponents' average winning percentage.
