Fantasy Three-Year Projections: Shortstops

0

J.J. Jansons

Stacking up the six-spotters based on their value from now through the end of the 2018 season.

As was pointed out in previous editions, positional three-year rankings are perhaps most useful for keeper-league owners, but they can serve a number of purposes for dynasty-league owners as well, particularly those who are in (or approaching) contention and not knee-deep in the perpetual rebuild that many owners seem to enjoy. If your contention window is now and you’re wondering who to keep and who to deal, the three-year rankings are for you, as they won’t feature any prospects who are just legally able to vote.

It’s especially important to note that these rankings are decidedly not the consensus rankings of the BP Fantasy Staff; they are the rankings of the selected author.

Fantasy Three-Year Projections: Third Base

Greg Wellemeyer

Stacking up the third sackers based on their value between now and the end of the 2018 season.

J.J. Jansons and I are taking turns doing the three-year rankings, and with catchers, first basemen, and second basemen in the rearview it’s time to focus on the hot corner.

These rankings function best as something like a cross between keeper preferences and dynasty rankings for those whose window of contention is open in the immediate future. Crucially, these rankings are mine alone. They no doubt vary from the opinions of other smart evaluators on this site, and that’s okay. Good, even. This wouldn’t be much fun if we all thought the same thing about every player and couldn’t learn from each other in the cases where we diverge.

If your contention window is now and you’re wondering who to keep and who to deal, the three-year rankings are for you, as they won’t feature any prospects who are just legally able to donate blood.

Ranking the players at this position based on their value between now and the end of the 2018 season.

J.J. Jansons kicked off the three-year rankings series last week by bravely listing 39 real-life catchers, plus a generic Angel he made up and called Carlos Perez. I’m on first-base duty and while nothing is as bleak as catcher, the bottom of this list ain’t exactly rosy.

Before we get started, allow me to quote J.J. quoting Ben Carsley on the premise of these rankings:

Sizing up the backstop bunch from now through the 2018 season.

Although three-year rankings are perhaps most useful for keeper league owners, they can serve a number of purposes for dynasty league owners as well, particularly those who are in (or approaching) contention and not knee-deep in the perpetual rebuild that many owners seem to enjoy. If your contention cycle is now and you’re wondering who to keep and who to deal, the three-year rankings are for you—as they won’t feature any prospects who were just legally able to buy their first Powerball ticket.

It’s especially important to note that these rankings are decidedly not the consensus rankings of the BP Fantasy Staff; they are the rankings of the selected author.

Fantasy Three-Year Projections: Starting Pitchers, Part One

Doug Thorburn

Sizing up the top 50 arms from now through the end of the 2017 season.

We can take the typical aging curves of position players and throw them out the window for the pitchers, whose performance over time follows a far less predictable pattern, though birth dates did come into consideration on the extreme ends of the age scale. Expect a mechanics bend in these evaluations, as a pitcher's physical baselines take on added importance when looking at the multi-year landscape—well, that and the fact that I can't help but notice this stuff, since mechanics are kinda my thing. Many of the pitchers within individual tiers also share a common thread, a reflection of drafting tactics as well as the situational dynamics of the fantasy game.

Some of these rankings will deviate from convention, and I welcome feedback and/or discourse in the comments section.
