I think it's just marketing. They want to try to draw attention to as many rookies as possible. Whenever a guy gets hot he will shoot up the rankings like a rocket, passing guys who are having better years. If a guy has been near the top for awhile (like Davis) they will sometimes drop him like a stone so they can get some pub for other guys.
Flavor of the month kind of thing. I doubt they put much thought into it.
