2019 Fantasy Baseball Rankings (NL)

Expert Consensus Ranking (56 of 59 Experts) -
Rank Player (Team, Position) Overall Notes
1 Nolan Arenado (COL - 3B) 1 2.0 +1.0
Drafters know what they're getting in Arenado, who has batted no lower than .287 with at least 37 homers and 110 RBI in the last four years. He has played all but 16 games in those four seasons, making him a durable beacon of consistency worthy of a first-round selection. He signed an extension during the offseason, so investors no longer need to worry about a midseason trade removing him from Coors Field. A lack of steals is an unfortunate, but acceptable tradeoff for locking in bankable production at every other category.
2 Trea Turner (WSH - SS) 3 4.0 +1.0
Fantasy owners may have been disappointed with Turner's performance last year, but he still averages 20 HR, 56 SB and 106 runs with a .289 average per 162 games. Only Rickey Henderson and Joe Morgan have matched those totals over a full season. Turner is an extraordinary fantasy baseball asset and well worth a top 15 pick
3 Christian Yelich (MIL - LF,CF,RF) MiLB 4 3.0 -1.0
There is no denying that Yelich was a first round value in 2018 and perhaps even the #1 fantasy asset thanks to a .326 average with 36 homers, 22 steals and 110+ runs and RBIs. These numbers blew away his career marks, however, so projection models all have him regressing to a high-end second round value this year
4 Ronald Acuna Jr. (ATL - LF,CF) 5 5.0
Acuna met the seismic hype, and then some, by hitting .293/.366/.552 with 26 homers and 16 steals in 111 sizzling rookie games. He flaunted his MVP ceiling by posting a .429 wOBA and 19 of those long balls after the All-Star break. Challenging Mike Trout as baseball's best player is a real ceiling he could reach as soon as 2019. Before drafting him accordingly, beware a 25.3 K% and 74.6% contact rate sending his average backyard in his age-21 season. He may also run less often in the leadoff role.
5 Bryce Harper (PHI - CF,RF) 7 7.0
Harper may have posted just a .249 batting average in 2018, but the rest of his fantasy production was tremendous, plus his underlying metrics indicate the average returning closer to the .270 mark in 2019. His fantasy value improved when he signed with Philly because their ballpark is great for lefties, but he is still just a 2nd round pick.
6 Trevor Story (COL - SS) 8 11.0 +3.0
You can snag Story in the late second, or even third round despite the fact that he outproduced top-five pick, Francisco Lindor in BA, SB, RBI and was just one behind him in homers. There is more risk with Story, but his 2018 campaign was among the all-time greats for fantasy shortstops
7 Manny Machado (SD - 3B,SS) 9 8.0 -1.0
Regardless of what you think about Machado, he has been a reliable force of nature the last few years and likely hasn't even come into his prime yet. The landing spot in San Diego isn't quite what you would think, as it has actually been a top half of the league ballpark for right-handed hitters since they moved their fences in. So don't hesitate to snag him at the end of the first round, as he seems destined for another 35+ homer, 90+ RBI, 90+ run season
8 Paul Goldschmidt (STL - 1B) 10 10.0
Goldschmidt was incredible over his last 100 games, posting a .334/.424/.608 line. You may think his stats will take a big hit moving out of Chase Field, but with the humidor in place, it was actually among the worst park for hitters last season. In St. Louis, he should continue his run of 30+ homers, 95+ runs and a .290+ batting average
9 Freddie Freeman (ATL - 1B) 11 12.0 +1.0
First basemen isn't as deep as it once was so commodities like Freeman are well worth investing in toward the middle of the third round. He is a lock for 90 runs, 90 RBIs and a .300 batting average each year and that type of player doesn't grow on trees
10 Javier Baez (CHC - 2B,3B,SS) 12 9.0 -3.0
Baez was excellent last year, hitting 34 homers with 21 steals, 101 runs and a league-leading 111 RBIs. While he is surely a star, every projection model sees those numbers regressing in 2019, especially his batting average which was propped up by a .347 BABIP
11 Charlie Blackmon (COL - CF) 13 14.0 +1.0
While Blackmon wasn't the number one fantasy asset like in 2017, he still knocked 29 homers, led the league in runs and batted .291, and don't forget, that was a down year. If that is his floor, fantasy owners are getting a steal in the late 2nd round.
12 Kris Bryant (CHC - 3B,RF) 14 17.0 +3.0
Bryant missed 60 games last year and had his least efficient season of his career by quite a bit. There is some risk in drafting Bryant in the 3rd round, but he also comes with 40 homer upside, a batting average near .300 and both 100+ runs and RBIs
13 Juan Soto (WSH - LF) 16 15.0 -1.0
Soto was every bit as good as top-ten pick, Alex Bregman per plate appearance last season, but is going 20 picks later. Keep in mind, he accomplished that as a teenager. Don't hesitate to reach an entire round to grab him before he progresses even more
14 Anthony Rizzo (CHC - 1B) 17 18.0 +1.0
Rizzo took a major step backwards in the first half last year, but his final line of 25 homers, 101 RBIs and a .283 batting average ended up being about as good as his average season. We were drafting him in the 3rd round last year so don't hesitate to scoop him up for a discount this season
15 Starling Marte (PIT - CF) 18 20.0 +2.0
Marte bounced back from his 2017 suspension season with another big year. He stolen 33 bases, knocked 20 homers and batted a quality .277. While he may not swipe 45 bags anymore, that power/speed combo makes him well worth a fourth round pick in standard leagues
16 Rhys Hoskins (PHI - 1B,LF) 20 21.0 +1.0
Although his slugging percentage dropped from .618 to .496, Hoskins still popped 34 homers in his first full season. Boasting MLB's highest fly-ball rate (51.7%) and launch angle (22.6°) of all qualified hitters, drafters can expect more of the same. Yet it will come at the cost of batting average, and he'll only offer a handful of steals when pitchers aren't looking. Last year's 48th-ranked hitter on ESPN's Player Rater probably needs 40-plus homers to validate his hefty cost. At least he'll get plenty of RBI opportunities hitting alongside Bryce Harper.
17 Anthony Rendon (WSH - 3B) 21 24.0 +3.0
Every single season, fantasy owners draft Rendon in the fourth or fifth round and every single year he outproduces that draft value. 2018 was no different, as he hit .308 with 24 homers, 92 RBIs and 88 runs scored in just 136 games. Don't make the mistake of letting him slip by you in the fourth again this season
18 Cody Bellinger (LAD - 1B,CF) 23 22.0 -1.0
Last year was a major disappointment for Bellinger owners after he hit 39 homers in just 132 rookie games in 2017. He still managed to hit 25 bombs with 14 steals, however, so the floor is plenty high. At just 23 years old, we clearly haven't seen the best of Bellinger so don't be surprised if he breaks out for 50 bombs this year or next
19 Eugenio Suarez (CIN - 3B) 26 30.0 +4.0
In the first half last year, Suarez was sensational, hitting 19 homers with 71 RBIs while batting .312. The second half wasn't as pretty, so we may see him take a step back in 2019, but you can still bank on 30+ homers and around 100 RBIs with a decent batting average
20 Joey Votto (CIN - 1B) 25 28.0 +3.0
Votto did not return second round value or even close to it last year, but his ADP should be around the fifth this year. You can expect his batting average to bounceback above .300, and don't forget that he had 94 HRs in the previous three years before his 12 in 2018
21 Jean Segura (PHI - SS) 28 35.0 +7.0
It might not feel sexy drafting Segura, but you can expect a .300+ batting average and 20+ steals for the fourth consecutive season from him. If he finally plays a full season, we may be looking at a 20/30 year with a .310 batting average which would make Segura a top 25 fantasy asset
22 Ozzie Albies (ATL - 2B) 27 31.0 +4.0
Albies got off to a torrid start in his first full season in the Big Leagues, hitting nine home runs in April and heading into the All Star break with 20 HRs and nine steals. He struggled mightily in the second half of the season, but still finished as a top-three second basemen in standard 5x5 formats. There are some concerns that the Braves' acquisition of Josh Donaldson could push Albies down towards the bottom half of the lineup, hurting his counting stats and ability to steal bases, but it's also possible he'll stick in one of the first two lineup spots. Regardless, Albies has already proven he has 20-20 potential and should even be able to improve a bit on last season's .261 batting average.
23 Lorenzo Cain (MIL - CF) 29 34.0 +5.0
Cain didn't experience the power growth that many were expecting when he moved from Kansas City to Milwaukee, and his fantasy value was somewhat lessened by an absurdly low RBI count (38). But he did hit north of .300 for the fourth time in five seasons and collected a career-high 30 stolen bases. It's probably time to accept that he is not going to be a 20 HR guy, but he doesn't need to be one to be a top-50 hitter in standard 5x5 leagues. And he could be even better than that if everything clicks and he goes .300-15-30 with over 100 runs scored.
24 Daniel Murphy (COL - 1B,2B) 31 38.0 +7.0
Murphy's overall stat line wasn't all that impressive last year, but once he was healthy in the second half, he returned to hittin .315 with a 25 HR pace. Move that to Coors Field and we may be looking at the NL Batting Champion with plenty of homers, RBI and runs. Be mindful that he rarely plays a full season, but when he is on the field we are looking at a top 30 fantasy asset
25 Marcell Ozuna (STL - LF) 34 41.0 +7.0
Ozuna's massive 2017 season seemed destined to go down as an outlier, and that's exactly what happened as he experienced a major drop-off in every offensive category last season. A shoulder injury reportedly impacted his performance last year, but the fact remains that Ozuna now has three full seasons where he has hit exactly 23 home runs with a batting average between .265 and .280 and 75-90 RBIs. That's the player we should expect in 2019, not the one that went .312-37-124 in 2017.
26 Corey Seager (LAD - SS) 35 39.0 +4.0
It can be easy to forget that as a rookie in 2016, Seager was not only the rookie of the year, but an MVP finalist. He was plenty useful in 2017 fantasy baseball too, but missed most of 2018 with Tommy John surgery and hip surgery. He should be ready to roll by opening day so while there is some risk, consider that he is still just 24 so we may not have seen his best yet
27 J.T. Realmuto (PHI - C,1B) 38 25.0 -13.0
Realmuto's .277 batting average with 21 homers and 74 RBIs doesn't seem all that impressive, but the fact of the matter is that he blew the rest of the catcher scene away with those numbers. Realmuto is as safe as it comes at the position and should produce far above the lousy replacement level once again. This is especially true now that he has been traded to a great hitter's ballpark in Philly. Don't hesitate to reach for him so you don't get stuck with an awful catcher
28 Matt Carpenter (STL - 1B,2B,3B) 39 36.0 -3.0
Over the last five years, Carpenter has a remarkable 468 walks, which obviously has contributed to his 483 runs. In that time, his power has steadily improved, all the way to 36 homers last year, and while that total may not be repeatable, 30 homers with 100 runs makes him well worth a sixth round pick in 2019 fantasy leagues
29 Nicholas Castellanos (CHC - RF) 40 47.0 +7.0
There's no doubt that Castellanos is a solid fantasy option, but last season's .298 batting average looks due for quite a bit of regression, he doesn't run, and his run production numbers could also take a hit as the Tigers enter into a full-on rebuild. There are better outfielders available at his late-seventh round ADP.
30 David Dahl (COL - LF,CF,RF) 44 50.0 +6.0
There is plenty of reason to be excited about David Dahl, as his upside is a true five-category contributor. With that said, he has been among the most injury-prone players in baseball so even 400 plate appearances is no guarantee.
31 Michael Conforto (NYM - LF,CF,RF) 43 58.0 +15.0
We've seen enough of Conforto by now to know that the hype was overblown. Sure, he has had some extremely promising stretches, but over a full year of health in 2018, he wasn't as good as Randal Grichuk who is going over 100 picks later because of the difference in name value.
32 Justin Turner (LAD - 3B) 45 45.0
Turner has played more than 130 games just once in his eight-year career, but he's been consistently excellent when he's on the field. If you pro-rate his stats over a full season, you are typically looking at 25 home runs and 90 RBIs. Most importantly, with a batting average of at least .312 in three of the last five seasons, Turner is on the very short list of players who are capable of winning the batting title. His value gets a big boost in leagues with daily lineups and/or multiple DL spots -- he is highly underrated in those formats.
33 A.J. Pollock (LAD - CF) 46 48.0 +2.0
Pollock was a fantasy monster in 2015, but then an elbow injury cost him almost the entire 2016 season and he hasn't been quite the same player since. A 20-20 season is in the realm of possibility here, and Pollock should score plenty of runs atop the Dodgers lineup as long as he can stay healthy. Just don't reach too early while dreaming of 2015.
34 Travis Shaw (MIL - 1B,3B,2B) 47 52.0 +5.0
Shaw has back to back seasons with 30 homers, and while his batting average may linger in the .240's again, that type of power is difficult to come by after pick 100, especially for someone who qualifies as a second basemen in most leagues.
35 Andrew McCutchen (PHI - LF,RF) IL60 48 74.0 +26.0
McCutchen's strikeout rate has grown and his batting averaged has dipped over the last few seasons, but he has continued to be a very reliable source of 20+ homers, 10+ SBs, and solid run and RBI totals. Now, at age 32, he is finally set to play a full season in a hitter's park while surrounded by a potent lineup. McCutchen's numbers may fluctuate a bit based on where he ends up hitting in the lineup, but it's not unreasonable to expect his power and run production numbers to trend upward a bit in the best hitting environment of his long career.
36 Josh Donaldson (ATL - 3B,DH) 50 46.0 -4.0
Donaldson was one of the very best hitters in fantasy in 2015 and 2016. A calf injury cost him a big chunk of the 2017 season, but he still hit 33 home runs in 113 games. Then, in 2018, calf and shoulder injuries limited Donaldson to 52 games -- and had a huge impact on his performance while on the field. It's possible that Donaldson's body is falling apart and he'll never be the same, but it's also possible that he has one or two more big years left in the tank. That makes Donaldson a boom-or-bust pick, but the potential reward far outweighs the risk at his current ADP of 98.7.
37 Wil Myers (SD - 3B,LF,RF) 49 54.0 +5.0
Myers will play the outfield in San Diego this year, but will carry over third base eligibility from last season, making him one of the very few options for speed at 3B. He averaged 29 home runs and 24 stolen bases between 2016 and 2017, and was on pace to again go 20-20 last year if not for missing nearly half the season due to a host of different injuries. You can't expect Myers to do much better than his .253 career batting average, but his combination of power and speed makes him a sneaky contender to finish as a top-12 third baseman in roto/categories leagues if he can stay healthy.
38 Robinson Cano (NYM - 2B) 53 56.0 +3.0
Cano isn't nearly the player he once was, but he's proven over the last several seasons that he is still fully capable of hitting 20-25 HRs with a batting average north of .280. He is 36 years old and coming off of a PED suspension, so the risk for a collapse exists, but it's worth noting that he was actually better following the suspension last season. The move from Seattle to the Mets should be fairly neutral in terms of both ballpark and lineup.
39 Jose Peraza (CIN - SS) 56 60.0 +4.0
Peraza broke out last season with 13 homers, 23 steals and a .288 batting average. Whether or not the power stays is a question, but he seems to be a safe source for runs, steals and batting average in the middle of drafts.
40 David Peralta (ARI - LF) IL60 55 73.0 +18.0
Peralta is a .293 career hitter, so it wasn't exactly a surprise that he hit .293 last year. What was shocking, however, was that he hit 30 home runs after never hitting more than 17 in any of his previous four Major League seasons. The power spike was backed up by a ton of hard contact, but his ground ball rate remained high, making a repeat quite unlikely. Buy Peralta for the batting average, and consider anything more than 20 home runs to be a bonus.
41 Victor Robles (WSH - RF) 58 65.0 +7.0
Robles has been somewhat overshadowed by Juan Soto in Washington, but he had success in a brief stint with the Nationals last year and looks poised to break out in 2019. The projection systems generally expect Robles to steal at least 25 bases with low-double digit home runs and a batting average in the .275 range, which would probably be enough to make Robles worth deploying immediately, even in three outfielder leagues.
42 Mike Moustakas (MIL - 3B,DH) 59 79.0 +20.0
Moustakas has been an excellent source of power for several years running now and doesn't have as much swing and miss in his game as you might imagine. Now that he qualifies at second base and is back in Milwaukee, there is a strong case for drafting him within the top 100 overall.
43 Max Muncy (LAD - 1B,2B,3B) 64 61.0 -3.0
Muncy was 2nd in HR-rate among all MLB hitters last season. Granted, he slowed down toward the end of the year and his batting average wasn't ideal, but that type of power certainly warrants a top 100 pick. This is especially the case when he qualifies at second base and third base too.
44 Brian Dozier (WSH - 2B) 69 77.0 +8.0
Dozier may not have had the best season last year, but he still hit 21 homers with 12 steals. The batting average is expected to rise in 2019 and let's not forget that he has 40 homer, 20 steal upside.
45 Ender Inciarte (ATL - CF) MiLB 72 78.0 +6.0
Inciarte is not the kind of player that fantasy managers drool over, but he is a strong bet to steal 20 bases and hit 10 home runs while batting close to .300. If he does that again, he'll be well worth starting in standard 12-team mixed leagues.
46 Eric Hosmer (SD - 1B) 74 89.0 +15.0
Hosmer was a wreck in the second half, posting a negative average launch angle. While that is no guarantee to be fixed, he is still a career .280 hitter with excellent durability and sufficient power. Eventually every player becomes a value and Hosmer's ADP may have fallen enough that it has become the case.
47 Yasmani Grandal (MIL - C) 77 63.0 -14.0
Grandal's batting average may not seem all that appealing in the .240s range, but that is actually at replacement-level for the position so he won't hurt you there. He will definitely help in HRs, RBIs and runs, though. Over the last three seasons, he trails only (the injured) Salvador Perez in homers, and that was before he moved from an awful park for hitters in L.A. to a hitter's have in Milwaukee.
48 Ryan Braun (MIL - 1B,LF) 76 103.0 +27.0
Braun isn't often healthy, but when he is on the field, he has continued to rake over the last three years. In that time, his per 162 game average is 30 homers, 18 steals and a .279 batting average. If he can finally stay on the field, fantasy owners will hit the jackpot this year.
49 Ian Desmond (COL - 1B,LF) 83 83.0
Desmond has now gone 20/20 in five of his last six healthy seasons. His .236 batting average isn't what you'd hope for, but keep in mind that he batted .285 and .274 the previous two seasons so he should jump back in 2019.
50 Willson Contreras (CHC - C) 84 67.0 -17.0
Contreras was a major disappointment for fantasy owners in 2018 after starting off his career with 33 HRs, 109 RBIs and a .278 batting average through 629 at-bats in his first two years. He is still young, however, and expected to improve from last season.
51 Paul DeJong (STL - SS) 85 91.0 +6.0
DeJong is one of the better power options at shortstop, but he doesn't project to be of any help in batting average or stolen bases, meaning he'll need a big boost in runs and RBIs to become interesting in standard 5x5 leagues.
52 Amed Rosario (NYM - SS) 86 92.0 +6.0
Rosario is a former top prospect but that doesn't mean he has much more upside with the bat that we have already seen early in his career. A dozen homers and a .260 batting average is likely his cap, but with 25 stolen bases, that makes for a decent depth piece.
53 Brandon Nimmo (NYM - LF,CF,RF) 90 90.0
The Mets finally found playing time for Nimmo, who responded in kind with 17 homers, nine steals, and the sixth-highest wRC+ (149) among all qualified hitters. Because of his stellar 15.0% walk rate, the Mets are likely to deploy him in the leadoff role (at least against righties) ahead of a refurbished lineup. He should deposit plenty of runs with 20-homer, 10-steal potential, but beware a low batting average because of his precise pickiness at the plate. A solid mid-draft investment in five-by-leagues, Nimmo's gold in OBP formats.
54 Adam Eaton (WSH - LF,RF) 88 110.0 +22.0
If he stays healthy, Eaton could go down as one of 2018's biggest steals. Pun somewhat intended, as he swiped nine of 10 opportunities in just 95 games when not sidelined by an ankle injury. Probably more important to his stock, he hit .301 with a .394 OBP, giving him an average and OBP above .280 and .360, respectively, in each of the last five seasons. That could give him an opportunity to bat ahead of Anthony Rendon and Juan Soto atop Washington's lineup. If his body cooperates, he'd become 2019's Michael Brantley.
55 Wilson Ramos (NYM - C,DH) 94 76.0 -18.0
Ramos missed most of 2017 and struggled while he was healthy, but that seems to be the outlier, as he was tremendous in both 2016 and 2018, batting over .300 both seasons with plenty of power. Ramos is one of the safest fantasy catchers and may have as much upside as anyone besides Sanchez and Realmuto.
56 Cesar Hernandez (PHI - 2B) 92 93.0 +1.0
Hernandez may be about as boring as it gets, but you should be glad to welcome 15 homers, 20 steals and 90 runs onto your roster. That is the production he gave fantasy owners last year and you may want to keep in mind that he had a .294 batting average the two previous seasons.
57 Kyle Schwarber (CHC - LF) 91 97.0 +6.0
The experts (146) and ADP (179) are still dreaming of what Schwarber could be rather than accepting who he is: a left-handed Evan Gattis with more walks and strikeouts. Both burly sluggers, unfortunately, no longer have catcher eligibility. While Schwarber can contribute in OBP or OPS leagues, the career .228 hitter is an average liability who won't make up for the glaring liability if the Cubs keep limiting his playing time. If lucky, drafters will get a .240, 30-homer outfielder with more intriguing power bats (Hunter Renfroe, Justin Smoak, Jake Lamb, a much cheaper Jay Bruce or Randal Grichuk) still on the board. Drafters could stay in Chicago and take the same power gambit on Daniel Palka over 100 picks later.
58 Buster Posey (SF - C,1B) 93 71.0 -22.0
Although Posey isn't likely a .300 hitter anymore, his .280s batting average is the equivilant of a .310 hitter when compared to the replacement-level at his position. Add in a dozen homers, if he can stay healthy this year, and you've got yourself a boring, yet extremely useful top 8 fantasy catcher.
59 Yadier Molina (STL - C) 95 75.0 -20.0
Catcher's don't often get 450 trips to the plate, but Tadi has done it every year since 2008. As you can imagine, the runs and RBIs pile up with extra playing time, and it certainly helps that he increases your team's batting average and may add another 20 homers this season.
60 Corey Dickerson (PHI - LF,DH) IL60 96 116.0 +20.0
61 Jesse Winker (CIN - LF,RF) 100 104.0 +4.0
62 Harrison Bader (STL - LF,CF,RF) 103 98.0 -5.0
The latest byproduct of Cardinal Devil Magic, Bader broke out with 12 homers, 15 steals, and a 3.5 fWAR in 138 games. The WAR doesn't directly help fantasy investors, but stellar defense in center field should preserve a starting job on a crowded Cardinals roster with one corner-outfield spot left for Dexter Fowler, Tyler O'Neill, and Jose Martinez. A 29.3 K% and .220 xBA threaten his passable .264 batting average and said security, but there's also a high steals ceiling with last year's ninth-highest Statcast Sprint Speed Score (29.9 feet/second). Don't go overboard on his rookie success.
63 Eduardo Escobar (ARI - 3B,SS) 108 96.0 -12.0
64 Billy Hamilton (ATL - CF) 107 85.0 -22.0
Hamilton is going to give you no power, of course, and his batting average will almost certainly drag you down, but 50 steals will more than make up for both of those problem spots. If you are low on steals in the middle of your draft, Hamilton can quickly solve that problem.
65 Josh Bell (PIT - 1B) 110 139.0 +29.0
Bell has shown us a .273 batting average before and another year he swatted 26 homers with 90 RBIs. Last year was a little bit in between, but he has the potential to do both one day and perhaps this year.
66 Odubel Herrera (PHI - CF) SUS 112 124.0 +12.0
67 Pete Alonso (NYM - 1B,DH) 118 133.0 +15.0
While Jed Lowrie and Todd Frazier both starting 2019 on the IL, Alonso forced the Mets' hand and won an Opening Day by displayed his Herculean power throughout spring training. The rookie could promptly crush 30 long balls if locked into the starting role all year. Their infield, however, could get crowded when Lowrie and Frazier return, so he may need to hit out of the gate to preserve a big league role.
68 Tyler White (LAD - 1B) IL60 119 149.0 +30.0
White closed out the season on a terror for Houston, finishing with an .888 OPS. He likely will open the season as their DH and has a chance at breaking out, but may be pushed out of the lineup by Kyle Tucker if he slips up.
69 Garrett Hampson (COL - 2B,SS) 121 115.0 -6.0
Entrenched in a heated battle for Colorado's second-base gig, Hampson has teased immense fantasy upside with three homers and five steals in his first 13 spring games. The career .315/.389/.457 minor league hitter has swiped 125 bases in three professional seasons, so he could be a major difference-maker if given the opportunity to start regularly while calling Coors Field home. Drafters still must be careful, as Ryan McMahon and Pat Valakia are also making compelling cases for playing time this spring. Hampson, however, would help fantasy investors the most, and thus warrants a late-round gamble.
70 Fernando Tatis Jr. (SD - SS) IL60 122 138.0 +16.0
The Padres presented a pleasant surprise by including Tatis on their Opening Day roster. Arguably MLB's best prospect behind Vladimir Guerrero Jr., the 20-year-old shortstop batted .286/.355/.507 with 16 homers and steals apiece in 88 Double-A games last season. He also recorded a 27.7% strikeout rate, so expect some growing pains in his debut. An early slump could send him back to the minors, where Luis Urias will wait for another call-up. Like Yoan Moncada, Tatis could offer double-digit homers and steals with a low batting average, but he's certainly worth rostering just in case he breaks out sooner than expected.
71 Ketel Marte (ARI - 2B,SS) 123 137.0 +14.0
We have seen enough from Marte to know he will never produce useful batting averages or the speed he teased as a prospect. There is something to be said for an everyday player in terms of counting stats, but outside of that, he is replacement-level.
72 Hunter Renfroe (SD - LF,RF) 120 112.0 -8.0
Looking like no more than a short-end platoon bat, Renfroe unearthed his raw power to rake 19 home runs in 60 second-half games. That late surge helped secure some fantasy titles, but the price isn't rising since he must compete with Wil Myers, Manuel Margot, Franmil Reyes, and Franchy Cordero for playing time in San Diego's outfield. A 112 wRC+ against righties should give him a shot to avoid a small-portioned timeshare, but any slump could promptly cost the 27-year-old playing time. He's also a solid bet to pop 30 long balls if given just 500 plate appearances, so don't sleep on him if competitors are avoiding a crowded outfield.
73 Gregory Polanco (PIT - RF) IL60 124 132.0 +8.0
74 Jake Lamb (ARI - 3B) 125 147.0 +22.0
You may not feel great about drafting Lamb after his trainwreck 2018 season, but he is just one year removed from 30 homers and 105 RBIs so don't sleep on him bouncing back. With that said, the move to the humidor in Arizona makes it seem as though his ceiling is a bit lower than what we saw from him in 2017.
75 Maikel Franco (PHI - 3B) 129 141.0 +12.0
Franco has always had plenty of potential, but has yet to put it together for a full season. Over his final 350 at-bats last year, he was excellent and now that the Phillies bulked up their lineup, it is possible that Franco could break out for a .280, 25 homer, 100 RBI season.
76 Nick Senzel (CIN - 2B,3B,CF) 134 117.0 -17.0
Senzel can't catch a break. Shortly after getting optioned to Triple-A, he suffered a sprained ankle that will sideline him for a few weeks to start the season. That derails his chances of replacing the injured Scooter Gennett (groin) at second base. Most scouts believe the 23-year-old can make an immediate mark, but injuries and a crowded Reds lineup could continue to delay his anticipated debut. The latest setback makes it tougher to stash him in standard mixed leagues.
77 Asdrubal Cabrera (WSH - 2B,3B,SS) 137 113.0 -24.0
Now that Cabrera is with the Rangers and expected to play every day, we can feel comfortable grabbing him late in drafts as a reliable source of power to go with a decent batting average.
78 Nick Markakis (ATL - RF) 142 135.0 -7.0
79 Chris Taylor (LAD - 2B,SS,LF,CF) 141 121.0 -20.0
The Dodgers will oddly relegate Taylor to a super-utility role after recording 7.9 fWAR over the last two years combined. Although he didn't fully repeat a breakout 2017, he was still a productive starter (113 wRC+, 3.1 WAR) in 2018. He's versatile enough to still play more often than not, and an injury (or poor performance from Enrique Hernandez as the full-time second baseman) could propel him right back into an everyday role. He's droppable in shallow mixed leagues with three starting outfielders and no corner/middle infielders, but everyone else should stand pat.
80 Ryan Zimmerman (WSH - 1B) 138 188.0 +50.0
You may not feel sexy drafting Ryan Zimmerman, but he is just one year removed from hitting 36 homers with a .303 batting average and 108 RBIs. Last year wasn't bad either with an .824 OPS, but he caught the injury bug again. He is a classic boom or bust late-round pick.
81 Jose Martinez (STL - 1B,RF) 143 114.0 -29.0
Martinez rakes, there is no doubt about that, but he also lost his path to playing time when Paul Goldschmidt was acquired this off-season. Now, he requires an injury to either Marcell Ozuna or Dexter Fowler/Tyler O'Neill to see more than 300 at-bats.
82 Ryan McMahon (COL - 1B,2B,3B) 151 172.0 +21.0
After hitting .424 with nine doubles and three homers in spring, McMahon made the Rockies' roster and Opening Day lineup. Also heavily hyped entering 2018, he managed a meager .232/.307/.683 slash line in 202 plate appearances. He'll also still have to compete with Garrett Hampson for playing time at second base, but all managers need to pay attention to a promising 24-year-old hitter who gets to play in Coors Field. The breakout may be coming a year later than anticipated.
83 Wilmer Flores (ARI - 1B,2B,3B) 152 201.0 +49.0
Over the last four seasons, Flores has been a useful fantasy player when he gets at-bats, posting 21 homers, 72 RBIs and a .267 batting average per 162 games. He should see plenty of playing time in Arizona this year and qualifies at second base, driving up his value.
84 Starlin Castro (MIA - 2B) 145 194.0 +49.0
Castro went from one of the best ballparks to the worst possible offensive ballpark last season and it showed in his stats as he dropped from a .300 batting average and 20 homer pace to 12 homers and just a .278 average. More than likely, that is the mediocre type of production fantasy owners will get this year.
85 Adam Jones (ARI - CF,DH) 147 175.0 +28.0
Steven Souza's season-ending knee surgery will likely clear up a starting spot for Jones, who still hit .281 with 15 homers in a down 2018. The durable veteran has averaged 151 games played over the past nine seasons, and he had gone seven straight seasons with at least 25 long balls before last year's decline. He's a boring depth piece who can help fill an injury void in deep leagues.
86 Kike Hernandez (LAD - 1B,2B,SS,LF,CF,RF) 161 160.0 -1.0
Hernandez's production has risen (67, 92, and 118 wRC+) along with playing time (244, 342, 462 PAs) over the past three seasons. The latter trend will at least continue, as he will open 2019 as the Dodgers' starting second baseman. He no longer needs to hide in a platoon after popping 12 homers and a 123 wRC+ against righties last season. His strikeouts also continue to decline, so the featured role could lead to a solid average with 20-25 homers. The 27-year-old is also eligible at least three positions (2B, SS, and OF), making him a useful spark plug to pluck off the waiver wire.
87 Jung Ho Kang (MIL - 3B) MiLB 168 191.0 +23.0
Kang may not open the season as the starter in Pittsburgh, but with the way he is playing this spring, you'll want to keep a close eye on him. After all, we've seen Kang be a useful fantasy piece in years prior.
88 Jeff McNeil (NYM - 2B) IL60 156 157.0 +1.0
89 Manuel Margot (SD - CF) 157 205.0 +48.0
90 Jed Lowrie (NYM - 2B,3B) 162 156.0 -6.0
Lowrie gave fantasy owners a surprising boost in power last season in Oakland and always offers a decent batting average. He might start the season on the DL with a knee injury, but once he returns, Lowrie should be owned in every league.
91 Yonder Alonso (COL - 1B) 158 190.0 +32.0
Alonso wasn't especially impressive last year with a .250 batting average and just 23 homers, but he is just one year removed from posting an .866 OPS with Oakland and Seattle so don't discount a big bounce-back campaign.
92 Brandon Belt (SF - 1B,LF) 154 184.0 +30.0
Belt still hasn't surpassed 20 homers in any season and over the last two seasons, his batting average has dropped down below .255. If he can stay healthy for once, however, Belt may reach 25 homers if he keeps up his HR-rate.
93 Evan Longoria (SF - 3B) 159 196.0 +37.0
Longoria had a rough season for fantasy owners in 2018, but the batting average was held back by an abnormally low BABIP and his power was right on track for another 20 to 25 homers had he been healthy for the full season. In deeper leagues, his reliability is exactly what you should be targeting.
94 Kevin Pillar (SF - CF) 167 176.0 +9.0
95 Brian Anderson (MIA - 3B,RF) IL60 164 181.0 +17.0
96 Francisco Cervelli (ATL - C) 173 130.0 -43.0
Among all catchers with 200 plate appearances, Cervelli corralled the second-highest wOBA (.355) behind Wilson Ramos. His modest 12 homers comfortably cleared his previous high of seven, but concussions limited him to 404 plate appearances. He's unlikely to turn into a big bopper during his age-33 season, but Cervelli is a fine placeholder while healthy.
97 Adam Frazier (PIT - 2B,LF,RF) 172 182.0 +10.0
98 Joc Pederson (LAD - LF,CF) 165 173.0 +8.0
99 Francisco Mejia (SD - C,DH) 174 126.0 -48.0
Catcher is so bad that prospect pedigree has kept Mejia in top-10 consideration despite batting .176 (12-for-69) in the majors. Even his Triple-A production dipped (.279/.328/.426) after getting traded from Cleveland to San Diego, where Austin Hedges is still clamoring for reps behind the plate. Contact and power upside still makes the 23-year-old Mejia a viable dart throw for anyone who missed out on the big names. Those in one-catcher leagues, however, should move on quickly if he's not playing much in April.
100 Tyler O'Neill (STL - LF,RF) MiLB 175 187.0 +12.0
101 Ian Happ (CHC - 3B,LF,CF,RF) 180 180.0
Surprisingly demoted to Triple-A, Happ will open 2019 on many waiver wires while working his way back to the majors. Despite his strikeout woes, the 24-year-old has displayed a strong batting eye and solid pop for the Cubs. There's a good chance he'll quickly work his way back to the bigs, so monitor closely in shallow leagues and keep him stashed in deeper formats.
102 Matt Kemp (NYM - LF,RF) FA 178 162.0 -16.0
103 Franchy Cordero (SD - LF,CF) IL60 188 223.0 +35.0
104 Lewis Brinson (MIA - OF) 196 224.0 +28.0
105 Ian Kinsler (SD - 2B) IL60 195 197.0 +2.0
106 Jorge Alfaro (MIA - C) 189 145.0 -44.0
Alfaro is dealing with a knee issue that may keep him out at the start of the season, but he has so little competition in Miami that fantasy owners may still get 350 to 400 at-bats and the counting stats that go with it. Don't be surprised if he hits near his career .270 average once again either.
107 Yan Gomes (WSH - C) 192 146.0 -46.0
Gomes was one of only two catchers last year to bat .266 with 50+ runs scored. That may not feel like much, but the catching position is rough. He'll add 15 homers too, making him a top 10 fantasy catching option this year.
108 Tucker Barnhart (CIN - C) 190 158.0 -32.0
Barnhart doesn't have the best bat, but his elite defense will keep him on the field for nearly 500 at-bats again. In a killer Red's lineup, that should be plenty to get him the counting stats he needs to be draftable.
109 Eric Thames (MIL - 1B,LF,RF) 225 215.0 -10.0
110 Scott Schebler (CIN - CF,RF) 193 206.0 +13.0
111 Luis Urias (SD - 2B) 200 209.0 +9.0
Urias will open in Triple-A after the Padres surprisingly gave his spot to uber-prospect Fernando Tatis Jr. As a contact-orientated hitter, Urias doesn't elicit as much excitement from a fantasy perspective. He's not a necessary stash in re-draft mixed leagues, but dynasty players should try to use the demotion as a buy-low opportunity.
112 Jay Bruce (PHI - 1B,RF) 194 177.0 -17.0
113 Yoenis Cespedes (NYM - LF) IL60 198 222.0 +24.0
114 Raimel Tapia (COL - CF) 211 282.0 +71.0
115 Dansby Swanson (ATL - SS) 218 183.0 -35.0
Swanson had another rough season for fantasy owners in 2018, batting .238, but he did manage 14 homers and 10 stolen bases in a shortened season and let's not forget that there is untapped potential here as well. He isn't the worst late-round flier.
116 Jonathan Lucroy (CHC - C) 213 169.0 -44.0
117 Austin Barnes (LAD - C,2B) MiLB 226 178.0 -48.0
118 Tyler Flowers (ATL - C) 231 233.0 +2.0
119 Kurt Suzuki (WSH - C) 215 189.0 -26.0
Suzuki has been useful the last two seasons with a .276 batting average, 31 HRs and 100 RBIs in 623 at-bats, but his playing time is expected to take a hit as he likely backs up Yan Gomes in Washington. Even so, he is better than punting the position altogether.
120 Orlando Arcia (MIL - SS) 214 239.0 +25.0
121 Carson Kelly (ARI - C) 227 259.0 +32.0
122 Austin Hedges (SD - C) 223 179.0 -44.0
Hedges is no help in the batting average department, but he has enough power (32 homers in his last 700 at-bats) that he warrants a late-round pick if you still need a catcher. If he gets traded mid-season to clear up room for Mejia, Hedges could see a bump in his offensive production away from San Diego's ballpark.
123 Elias Diaz (PIT - C) 252 251.0 -1.0
124 Scott Kingery (PHI - 3B,SS) 245 212.0 -33.0
Kingery was dreadful last year. No one can deny that, but he is still young and offers 20/20 upside if his bat finds a way into the lineup at any number of positions. The is minimal risk at taking a chance on him late in drafts.
125 J.D. Davis (NYM - 1B,3B) 206 322.0 +116.0
126 Steven Duggar (SF - CF,RF,DH) IL60 237 269.0 +32.0
127 Nick Williams (PHI - LF,RF) 256 275.0 +19.0
128 Curtis Granderson (MIA - LF,RF,DH) 257 359.0 +102.0
129 Pablo Reyes (PIT - RF) 222 403.0 +181.0
130 Dexter Fowler (STL - RF) 248 263.0 +15.0
131 Freddy Galvis (CIN - SS) 233 316.0 +83.0
132 Brandon Crawford (SF - SS) 204 192.0 -12.0
Crawford is never going to steal bases or hit for a great average, but you can count on him to play 150 games which will add up in the RBIs and runs department, plus he is good for a dozen homers every year.
133 Albert Almora Jr. (CHC - CF) 259 248.0 -11.0
134 Alex Verdugo (LAD - LF,CF) MiLB 251 195.0 -56.0
Now that the Dodgers signed A.J. Pollock, it seems unlikely that Verdugo will make an impact in the majors until June. When he does, we are looking at a startable fantasy outfielder, but he isn't quite worth drafting in standard leagues as a stash and hold.
135 Kolten Wong (STL - 2B) 286 255.0 -31.0
136 Phillip Ervin (CIN - LF,RF) 242 344.0 +102.0
137 Colin Moran (PIT - 1B,3B) 235 272.0 +37.0
138 Johan Camargo (ATL - 3B,SS) MiLB 239 198.0 -41.0
Camargo flew under the radar last season and somehow swatted 19 homers and batted .272 in a utility role. He should get back to those 450 at-bats this year thanks to all the positions he plays, and we know his bat can be trusted while he is in the lineup.
139 Nick Ahmed (ARI - SS) 232 276.0 +44.0
140 Jedd Gyorko (LAD - 2B,3B) MiLB 264 319.0 +55.0
141 Brendan Rodgers (COL - SS) 266 257.0 -9.0
With the Rockies signing Daniel Murphy, Ryan McMahon shifted over to second base. This puts Rodgers even further away from the bigs, which is saying something because Garrett Hampson was already ahead of him. As it is now, Rodgers doesn't even make sense as a stash and hold in standard sized leagues.
142 Mauricio Dubon (SF - SS) 234 417.0 +183.0
143 Todd Frazier (NYM - 3B) 236 266.0 +30.0
Frazier is already a little banged up and has Peter Alonso breathing down his neck, but as long as he is in the lineup, you can expect a 25 homer, 10 stolen base pace, but with a lousy batting average that will bring your team down. Even still, he is a worthwhile depth piece in deeper leagues.
144 Joe Panik (NYM - 2B) 255 258.0 +3.0
145 Hernan Perez (MIL - 2B,3B,SS,LF,RF) 274 232.0 -42.0
Although Perez likely won't steal 34 bases like we saw in 2016, he is a sufficient source of speed late into drafts with enough at-bats that he'll add counting stats. There won't be much in the way of power, but his batting average won't kill you either.
146 Ben Zobrist (CHC - 2B,LF,RF) 263 185.0 -78.0
Zobrist isn't going to see 500 at-bats, nor does he offer much in the way of power or speed, but he is a reliable source of batting average late in drafts and that should be enough to warrant owning him as a depth piece.
147 Adam Duvall (ATL - 1B,LF) 244 230.0 -14.0
148 Lonnie Chisenhall (PIT - RF) IL60 276 339.0 +63.0
149 Jason Heyward (CHC - CF,RF) 265 246.0 -19.0

161 Manny Pina (MIL - C) 326 231.0 -95.0
162 Erik Gonzalez (PIT - 1B,2B,3B,SS) 311 358.0 +47.0
163 Derek Dietrich (CIN - 1B,LF) 314 321.0 +7.0

172 Mark Reynolds (COL - 1B) FA 299 387.0 +88.0
173 Addison Russell (CHC - SS) 289 253.0 -36.0
Russell is starting the season on the DL and although he is a former top prospect, has never shown enough with the bat to warrant a draft and stash in standard-sized leagues. With that said, you can make a case for owning him in deeper formats.
174 Roman Quinn (PHI - LF,CF) 477 262.0 -215.0
175 Yairo Munoz (STL - 3B,SS,CF) 322 274.0 -48.0
