2014 WNBA MVP Player Rankings

Updated through the regular season

I've ranked WNBA players based on 3 player ranking categories below. WNBA Efficiency (EFF), PER, and my rating BEMR. You can find out more about those ratings here:

Here's a sample team report.

Atlanta

The list below shows the players, their team, a ranking of the 3 systems I used, and the player's numbers for those stats. They are ranked in order of WNBA EFF. They are not my opinion of which players should be ranked in that order. I just thought that would be the best way to list them. You'll see the players ranking in the other categories below that particular heading. I listed the top 20 in each.

Minnesota's Maya Moore was the #1 ranked player in all 3 player metrics I used. It would be a major upset, in my opinion, if she wasn't named the WNBA MVP. After Maya Moore let the debate begin as the different ranking systems have different "statistical opinions" on the next group of great WNBA players.

(In order for a player to qualify for the MVP award I've set up a criterion that the player must play in 75% of their teams games and average 20 minutes per game played. That's just something I'm comfortable with that's all. 60+ players fulfill those specific numbers to be listed below.
