Big Ten Player Grades

 

I've graded each Big Ten starter based on projected stats and overall talent. Along with a bench grade, each team has a potential score of 60.0.  Teams are ranked according to the sum of the player grades, but these do not necessarily match my personal team predictions. The projected stats are from CHN's Fantasy Stats Preview. Note that the order here does not necessarily match my personal or CHN's projected standings.  Each team's top graded player is highlighted in red.

Note: MSU's sum of 43.0 is on par with other top of conference teams (but lower than UNC's leading 47.5). In general though, the Big Ten rosters had the lowest average scorers, and featured the least amount of high value players.
