Top 300 Overall Ranking for Fantasy Baseball

With the month about to turn over to March, we are officially in that glorious time of the year. Fantasy Baseball Draft Season! Throughout February, I’ve thrown out my positional tiered rankings along with breakdowns of each tier. You can find those here. I’ve also done some deep dives on some intriguing players and their outlooks for 2019. Those can be found here. My plan in the next few days is to publish all of my projections for 2019. It will likely be a simple post with a table but the link to my google sheet will be there as well. In March, I’ll spit out some articles with players I like more and less than Yahoo and ESPN to help you find values during your draft.
Last year in my first year submitting expert rankings, I finished 13 overall at FantasyPros. There’s a ton of huge names on that list, so 13th isn’t too bad. I’m hoping I can compete and improve this year. Hopefully, these articles and rankings help you win your league!
Rankings Updated 3/13/19.

With this, my top 300 for 2019 ranking, I’ve included dollar values for both 12-team, $260 budget (yahoo standard 22-man roster) and 15-team leagues $300 budget (NFBC expanded rosters) for our auction league players. The rankings and dollar values are Roto-style scoring. I play in at least one auction league every year and these values help me determine where I can find values relative to other players at different positions. I run the values utilizing what others call, standard gain points similar to what Dr. Tannar Bell and Jeff Zimmerman discuss. Each stat category for each player has a value associated with it relative to other “ownable” players. These values are compiled for each player. I then run through some statistical analysis to come up with dollar values based on league size (12-team and 15-team) used below. I want to be clear, I’m using only 22-man rosters for the 12-team dollar values (Yahoo standard) and NFBC expanded rosters for the 15-team leagues. That’s why the dollar values are lower for the 15-team league. I won’t bore you with the details of the calculations, so let’s get to the rankings and dollar values!
