Despite having only four games instead of the usual 16, the results this week still caused significant reordering of the ranks, especially among mid-ranked teams. I think this is a good illustration of just how sensitive Beatpaths rankings are to the strength of the field. The weeks in which rankings were more stable, despite having 16 games worth of data to integrate (e.g. Weeks 10-12, 15 & 17), are all the more amazing in light of the significant changes the four Wildcard games brought. The “big mover” this week was Washington, plummeting 11 ranks after their wins over Philadelphia were looped away.
