After 2 days of MLB I am 5-1 (number 52) for the week and 5-1 (Number 54) overall. How can my ranking be different? They are both made up of the last 2 days.

the reason is because OVERALL someone is doing a bit better with their sample size. Weekly and Overall will never be the same. ALSO overall is TOTAL UNITS. People have made more in total boosting their rank. You will see people who are number 1 rank for the week but ranked 3000 overall.. so weekly isnt really a clear picture of overall rank.

But during the first week both overall and weekly are based on the same exact picks.
