Power Ranking

The Sport Gene formula takes multiple facets into account when analyzing teams and their rankings amongst other teams:

Talent Level (Role on Team) + Roster Consistency (Previous 3 years) + Demonstrated chemistry (Amount of minutes players shared on court/field) + Coach’s Power Level (Previous 3 years)

Through the NFL and NBA Offseason, there were many moves in each franchise that made differences and waves.  With high fluctuations in both conferences in each respective sport, expect the NBA’s Western Conference and the NFL’s American Football Conference to have major playoff changes this year.  

Based off our equation, the power rankings for Preseason “Week 0” from The Sport Gene are as follows:
