About a month ago, I asked everyone to help us create a top prospects list doen by the community. Having everyone try to rank a bunch of players is a bit tedious, time-consuming, and probably best left to others. However, thanks to a poll which simply matches up individual players, the job of ranking can be done quickly.

The results are in after 606 sessions which included more than 38,000 individual votes. Each ranking includes a link to our prospect report for that player (there are two just missed posts, and the link will take you to the correct post for those players). The numerical score in parentheses comes from the poll and is the estimated chance of winning against another randomly chosen prospect. Thanks for your help.
