Fantasy Tiered Rankings: Relief Pitchers

J.P. Breen

Breaking down the bullpenners into fantasy-value-based bins.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year! It’s when we rank fantasy relievers, with the full understanding that approximately one-fourth of closers will lose their jobs prior to the end of the season, so we can look back at this list in October and have a guffaw.

Fantasy Tiered Rankings: Outfielders, Part Two: 31-75

J.P. Breen

Rounding out our rankings of the fantasy-relevant players who'll patrol the pastures this year.

On Tuesday, I unveiled the top-30 fantasy outfielders via our famed tiered-ranking system. That project continues today, as we move to no. 31-75. The outfield position is notoriously difficult to grasp at the lower levels. Too many players exist to construct such a deep ranking with pristine accuracy. There are always players one would like to include—such as Max Kepler and Aaron Altherr—but it’s imprudent to simply stuff the top 75 with upside plays. It needs uninspiring guys, too.

Unveiling the top three tiers of our outfield rankings for 2016.

The outfield position regularly boasts some of the premier fantasy players in the game. That’s no different this year, as many as five outfielders could be drafted in the first round of deeper mixed leagues—some familiar faces with a notable newcomer who was actually the top-grossing fantasy producer at the position in 2015.

Fantasy Tiered Rankings: Third Base

12

J.P. Breen

Breaking down the players eligible at the hot corner into fantasy value-based bins.

Third base has more star power than it has in roughly a decade, and it’s largely young star power. Just think, a year ago we only had Donaldson as a five-star fantasy option. Fast forward 12 months, and we’re legitimately discussing a hot-corner quartet that could dominate the fantasy scene for the next few years. Pretty cool.

Fantasy Tiered Rankings: First Base

J.P. Breen

Breaking down the options at this position into fantasy-value-based bins.

As our fantasy positional series continues at Baseball Prospectus, we move from a position of turpitude (catcher) to one of genuine quality (first base). The positional series is a collaborative effort—with my rankings taking into account the arguments of other Fantasy Team writers—so if your favorite player doesn’t get enough attention in this article, there’s a great chance that he’s been (or will be) featured in another piece this week. Let’s get to the “star” ratings, which will once again be broken down into five tiers.

Fantasy Tiered Rankings: Catchers

18

Mike Gianella

Breaking down this year's backstop group into fantasy-value-based bins.

Today, we kick off our positional tier rankings. For the fifth year in a row, we have made this into a collaborative effort. Players at each position will be divided into five tiers, represented by a “star” rating.

Five-star players are the studs at their position. In general, they are the players who will be nabbed in the first couple of rounds of the draft, and they will fetch mixed-league auction bids in excess of $30. Four-star players are a cut below the studs at the position. They will also be early-round selections, and they are projected to be worth more than $20 in most cases. Three-star players are the last tier in which players are projected to provide double-digit dollar value in auctions, and two-star players are projected to earn single digits in dollar value in auctions. One-star players are late-round sleepers and roster placeholders. The positional tiers aren't simply a regurgitation of last year’s values but rather try to offer some insights into what we expect will happen in 2016.
