2020 Dynasty Rankings – Fantasy Baseball Top 1000 PREMIUM
This whole month I’ve been working on prospect pieces including my Top 400 MLB Prospects Worldwide, 40 MLB Prospects Who Will Breakout in 2020, Top MLB Amateur Prospects and Top MLB International Prospects. Today, we make the jump to combine all of those prospects with current MLB players in order to assess their dynasty values.
I know some of you are psychos, like myself, who play in extraordinarily deep leagues so I figured it couldn’t hurt to just extend my list out to 1,000 players. This list includes 435 prospects including high schoolers, 15-year-olds in the Dominican Republic and superstars in Japan in case your league allows for all of that. With all that said, before we get to the rankings I’m going to breakdown five players that I’ve been getting a lot of questions on for dynasty leagues this preseason.
Eloy Jimenez (23 yr old OF – CWS)
Last year’s top-five consensus prospect started off the year so poorly that it may have left a sour taste in your mouth. If that’s the case, you surely weren’t paying close enough attention to the way he finished things up. This Manny Ramirez type youngster was sensational over the last two months, dragging his OPS up from .747 on the season to an .828 finish (higher than Eddie Rosario, Rhys Hoskins and Paul Goldschmidt). In fact, if you pro-rate those two months out to a full season, he was on a 50-homer, 142 RBI, .325 BA pace. That will likely never happen in his career, but it just goes to show that the upside is still very much real. If he were still a prospect, I’d rather have him than everyone else except Wander Franco and his teammate, Luis Robert.
