    Linebacker Rankings (06/15/15)

    By John Ewing Director of Research and Analytics @johnewing
    2015 NFL Positional Power Rankings – ranking every player in the NFL by position.

    Our NFL Positional Power Rankings are based on an impact score (0 - 10 scale) for each player. This score is a relative value based on the projections that can put players in context across positions. A score of seven or above can generally outperform a replacement player in the NFL at his position; an eight or above can be expected to start adequately and a player with a rating over nine is a unique, game-changing athlete.

    Rankings: offensive skill positions (including quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends). Offensive line, defensive line, linebackers and defensive secondary rankings will be revealed in the coming days.

    For more fun with impact scores check out the NFL Draft Machine.


    The highest rated player: Oakland's Khalil Mack. The Raiders' second year player has an impact score of 9.8 out of 10.

    Which team has the best group of linebackers in the league? Denver and Seattle each have team impact scores of 8.7 out of 10. The Broncos are anchored by Von Miller (9.7 out of 10) and the Seahawks are led by Bobby Wagner (9.2 out of 10).

April has historically been a great month for the Predictalator, as evidenced by last season's outstanding 41-22 (65.1%) record on all "normal" or better ML, RL, and O/U plays. A $50 bettor would have profited a whopping $1,002 using our recommended wager sizes in April.

    March Madness is winding down and it was another solid month for the Predictalator.

NBA has also followed suit with "normal" or better positions winning at a 58.1% clip since the beginning of February, and at a 57.9% clip for March.

    NHL profits continue to roll right along as well, as the Predictalator has cashed in on nine of 12 "normal" or better positions in March.
