2018 Fantasy Baseball Rankings (NL)
Expert Consensus Ranking (42 of 47 Experts) -
|Rank||Player (Team, Position)||Overall||Notes|
|1||Nolan Arenado (COL - 3B)||1||1.0||‐||
Arenado has become one of the most consistently elite performers in baseball, as 2017 marked his third straight season with at least 37 home runs and 130 RBI. Batting in Colorado certainly helps, but Arenado's numbers on the road (.283 batting average and a .531 slugging percentage) show that he's not merely a product of Coors Field. Even if he were, he'll remain in Colorado for the foreseeable future, and Arenado owners can put about 40 homers, 130 RBI, and outstanding production in the other fantasy categories in the bank for 2018, making him an easy top-five pick.
|2||Trea Turner (WSH - SS)||2||2.0||‐||
Turner missed more than a third of the season after fracturing his wrist from a hit-by-pitch, but he did nothing to make fantasy owners doubt his status as a true fantasy stud. Turner stole an incredible 46 bases in just 98 games, making him the most elite base-stealer in the game. The fact that he also chipped in 11 home runs, 75 runs, and a decent batting average only makes him all the more desirable. Given the scarcity of steals in the game, Turner is a sure-fire first-round pick, and can easily be considered in the top-five.
|3||Paul Goldschmidt (ARI - 1B)||4||5.0||+1.0||
Goldschmidt had another truly elite season, bouncing back from his minor power outage in 2016 to hit 36 home runs and finish as the fifth-ranked player in fantasy. There's little to discuss with Goldschmidt at this point - he's just 30 years old, has been an elite fantasy producer for five years, and shows no signs of decline. In fact, he had his highest hard-contact rate of his career in 2017. The addition of a humidor puts a minor damper on Goldschmidt's outlook, but don't overthink it, as he remains an elite hitter on the road. He's a top-10 pick in all fantasy formats this year.
|4||Charlie Blackmon (COL - CF)||3||6.0||+3.0||
Blackmon won the National League batting title last season, and also hit a whopping 37 home runs while totaling an impressive 137 runs scored. It's difficult to expect a repeat of those numbers, which far surpassed anything Blackmon had done in the past. On the downside, his stolen base output (and efficiency) continued to dip, as Blackmon stole just 14 bases in 24 attempts. Blackmon is a first-rounder, for sure, but betting on the soon-to-be 32-year-old to put up a repeat performance is a bit aggressive. Look for closer to his excellent 2016 numbers (.324 average, 29 home runs and 111 runs scored) and you'll probably be satisfied with his output in 2018.
|5||Bryce Harper (WSH - CF,RF)||5||4.0||-1.0||
Harper was well on his way to a career season before a grotesque knee injury knocked him out for a significant portion of the year. It wasn't all great news for Harper - his walk-rate dropped, his strikeout-rate rose, and he barely contributed in the stolen base department. But his 29 home runs and .319 batting average through 111 games showed just how high the ceiling is. Entering a contract year, expect a motivated Harper to give it everything he has this year and, health-willing, put up an elite fantasy season.
|6||Kris Bryant (CHC - 3B,RF)||8||8.0||‐||
Bryant had a bizarre year, in that he disappointed with just 29 homers and a shockingly low 73 RBI. But he showed plenty of signs of growth as a hitter, cutting his strikeout-rate and raising his walk-rate significantly. In the end, Bryant still bats near the top of an elite lineup, and he is just now entering his prime. Expect the home run and RBI totals to rise (even if he continues to bat second as he did most of last year), and for him to provide first-round production in 2018 and beyond.
|7||Joey Votto (CIN - 1B)||9||10.0||+1.0||
Votto, who has been an elite fantasy option for several years, somehow took his game to another level last year in his age-33 season. He tied his career-high in runs scored, and came close to matching his career-highs in home runs, RBI, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, and walk rate. He also had the lowest strikeout rate of his career (just 11.7 percent) by a wide margin. Simply put, he was as good as he's ever been last year, and there's no reason to doubt him this season. Even with the depth at the first base position, taking Votto with an early pick is an obviously safe and wise move.
|8||Manny Machado (LAD - 3B,SS)||10||9.0||-1.0||
Machado had a "down" year, which was largely the product of a terrible first two months of the season. But other than in the batting average department, where he batted a career-low .259, his numbers largely wound up in the range of his career-norms. That batting average drop appears to be a mirage, as Machado set a career-high in hard-contact percentage but had a career-worst .265 BABIP. Expect his batting average to jump back closer to his .279 career mark this season, and with soon-to-come dual eligibility, Machado should once again be considered a borderline first-rounder.
|9||Freddie Freeman (ATL - 1B,3B)||11||11.0||‐||
Absent his wrist injury that cost him more than six weeks of action, Freeman easily would have had his best season ever. Regardless, he showed that the power gains he made in 2016 were real, and he posted the lowest strikeout rate and highest ISO of his career. Playing in the bandbox that is SunTrust Park, there's little reason to doubt Freeman's ability to be an elite power hitter going forward. Especially if he has third-base eligibility in your league, Freeman should be a very early pick and can be relied on as one of the building blocks of your fantasy team.
|10||Anthony Rizzo (CHC - 1B,2B)||12||12.0||‐||
Rizzo has been perhaps the most reliable fantasy player in the game over the past four seasons, hitting either 31 or 32 home runs in each season, tallying between 89 and 99 RBI, and throwing in a handful of steals. But although his fantasy numbers remained consistent, he showed plenty of gains last year, cutting his strikeout rate and increasing his walk rate significantly. In other words, there's still plenty of room for growth for the young slugger. He remains one of the top first-base options in the game right now, but to the extent he gained second-base eligibility thanks to Joe Maddon's quirky shifts, he should be considered a truly elite fantasy option this year.
|11||Cody Bellinger (LAD - 1B,LF,CF)||13||14.0||+1.0||
Absent Aaron Judge's season, the baseball community would have been talking about Cody Bellinger's rookie year as perhaps the greatest of all time. Despite beginning the year in the minors and missing time on the disabled list, Bellinger swatted 39 home runs, and added 10 steals to boot. He did struggle some in the playoffs, especially in the World Series, where he struck out 17 times in 28 at-bats. That could mean that there's a book out on Bellinger, which could result in more strikeouts and a bit of a sophomore slump. Still, there's plenty of room for regression with the youngster, and he should still be an excellent fantasy option this year, even if his numbers dip a bit.
|12||Brian Dozier (LAD - 2B)||16||16.0||‐||
Dozier came close to repeating his career-best numbers from 2016, but his fantasy owners certainly weren't complaining. Dozier continues to be a strong four-category player with a batting average that won't hurt you. His best trait may be his durability, as he has played in at least 152 games in each of the past four seasons. Even if you took his worst single-season totals over that stretch, he would still give you a 101-23-71-12 line, and his outstanding floor keeps him near the top of the second-base ranks. With an improved walk-rate and little signs of decline elsewhere, Dozier makes an outstanding pick in the early rounds.
|13||Corey Seager (LAD - SS) DL60||17||17.0||‐||
Seager is an outstanding real-life ballplayer, but his fantasy totals don't really stand out anywhere. He's not much of a basestealer and has yet to top either 26 home runs or 77 RBI. Still, it's obvious that there's potential for much, much more with the young shortstop, and your worst case scenario is a player who will contribute in four categories and provide elite production in one (batting average). That safety makes Seager a valuable asset with upside, worthy of an early-round selection.
|14||Christian Yelich (MIL - LF,CF,RF)||19||21.0||+2.0||
Yelich is coming off another fine season, which saw him hit 18 home runs, steal 16 bases, and finish as the 20th-ranked outfielder in fantasy. But with his trade to the Brewers, he should be drafted significantly higher this season. Marlins Park has greatly depressed Yelich's numbers over the past two seasons. He hit 24 of his 39 home runs in that span on the road, and had an OPS 126 points lower at home 2017 and 170 points lower at home in 2016. Not only does he move out of Miami, but he goes to a hitters' haven in Miller Park, to a team that had the second-most stolen bases last season. Simply put, Yelich could easily go 25-25 this year and is knocking on the door of the top-10 outfielders.
|15||Starling Marte (PIT - LF,CF)||20||28.0||+8.0||
Marte obviously had a disappointing year considering he missed half the season after a PED suspension, and his .275 batting average and .379 slugging percentage were career-lows. But had he simply reached his average plate appearances from 2013-2016, he would have wound up with a .275-80-12-52-35 line, which essentially puts his floor at Lorenzo Cain-like production. With speed and batting average difficult to fill, Marte should be considered a borderline top-10 outfielder, even with the lack of a supporting cast.
|16||Marcell Ozuna (STL - LF)||21||24.0||+3.0||
Ozuna may have been the breakout player of the year, driving in an extra 50 runs from the previous season, batting 45 points higher and hitting for substantially more power. Another bump could come this year now that he is out of the Marlins' pitcher-friendly park.
|17||Anthony Rendon (WSH - 3B)||22||25.0||+3.0||
Rendon simply had a fantastic year in 2017, batting over .300 with solid counting stats all around. Perhaps most impressively, Rendon upped his walk-rate and dropped his strikeout significantly, so much so that he was one of just a few players to have more walks than strikeouts last year. The only thing truly keeping him down was Dusty Baker's insistence on batting him sixth, which depressed his run scored total (just 81). That shouldn't be a problem this year under Dave Martinez and, health-willing, Rendon should continue his growth as a hitter and perhaps put up a career-best season.
|18||Rhys Hoskins (PHI - 1B,LF)||23||20.0||-3.0||
Hoskins had an incredible season between Triple-A and the majors, swatting 47 home runs and totaling 115 RBI between the two levels. His 48 RBI in his first 50 Major League games is the best mark ever by a rookie, and his incredibly high walk rate and manageable strikeout rate suggests that his performance was not a fluke. With an improving Phillies lineup and another year under his belt, the sky is the limit for Hoskins heading into this season, and he should have dual-eligibility at both first base and outfield.
|19||Jonathan Schoop (MIL - 2B)||27||33.0||+6.0||
While there may be much more depth at second base this year than in years past, the second tier is a bit bare. Schoop leads the pack thanks to elite power for the position and a reliable batting average from year to year.
|20||Wil Myers (SD - 1B,LF,RF)||28||37.0||+9.0||
Myers' batting average dropped and his strikeout rate rose in 2017, but those are really the only negatives you can point to. He went 30-20, increased his walk rate to a career high 10.8%, and set a career high in hard-contact rate by a large margin. Yes, his runs and RBI totals dropped significantly, but those declines are hardly his fault, as the Padres' abysmal offense prevented him from padding his totals in those categories. Although the Padres may not be strong offensively again, Myers' combination of power and speed makes him an outstanding fantasy option at first base in 2018.
|21||A.J. Pollock (ARI - CF)||30||35.0||+5.0||
Pollock is not the same top 20 fantasy player that we saw three seasons ago, but a 20-30 season seems probable even with the humidor in Chase. Even with a mediocre batting average, that power/speed combo makes him a top 50 asset.
|22||Yoenis Cespedes (NYM - LF) DL60||34||41.0||+7.0||
A bulked-up Cespedes could not stay healthy last year, missing significant time with hamstring issues. Even when he played, he was essentially battling through on one leg all season, which makes his production all the more remarkable. Despite playing hurt and in a depleted lineup, if you gave Cespedes his average plate appearances throughout his career, he would have wound up with a line of .292-85-31-78, which is more than respectable. Now healthy and with a better supporting cast, Cespedes should once again be a solid four-category producer and a valuable fantasy asset.
|23||Lorenzo Cain (MIL - CF)||33||43.0||+10.0||
Fantasy owners should be salivating over Cain's move to the Brewers. Miller Park is one of the best hitter's parks in baseball, and the Brewers have led MLB in stolen base attempts since Craig Counsell took over as manager. There are some warning signs under the surface for Cain's power, so dreams of a 25-homer season may be a little optimistic. But batting near the top of an outstanding lineup and in a great park, he should be in line for one of the best seasons of his career.
|24||Eric Hosmer (SD - 1B)||35||42.0||+7.0||
Hosmer had a career-year at just the right time, hitting 25 home runs for the second consecutive season but raising his batting average to an impressive .318. That season garnered him a large contract from the Padres (after a lengthy wait), where he'll man first base for the next several seasons. Petco Park isn't nearly the pitcher's park it once was, and Hosmer shouldn't see too much of a dip in power with the move from Kauffman Stadium. The bigger issue for Hosmer is whether he can keep his average gains despite an extremely high ground ball-rate (fourth-highest in the league among qualified hitters last season). If he does, expect him to be a low-end starting first baseman in mixed leagues or a strong corner infielder.
|25||Daniel Murphy (CHC - 1B,2B)||39||40.0||+1.0||
If there were any lingering doubts that Murphy had completely changed as a hitter, last year put them to bed. With another season of more than 20 home runs, at least 90 RBI, and at least a .320 batting average, Murphy has firmly established himself as an elite fantasy option at second base. There were a few warning signs last year as Murphy continues to age - his strikeout rate jumped more than three percentage points, for example. But the biggest worry is that Murphy had knee surgery in the offseason and is questionable to be ready for Opening Day. Monitor his status closely this spring. If he looks like he'll miss little or no time, then you should have few concerns and draft him with confidence expecting similar numbers to the last two years.
|26||Ryan Braun (MIL - 1B,LF)||38||55.0||+17.0||
It seemed as though it would never happen, but Braun seems to have finally hit a wall. He finished last year with just 17 homers, 52 RBI and a .268 batting average because of multiple lingering injuries. If he can stay healthy, he may bounce back, but your expectations ought to be closer to what we saw last season.
|27||Willson Contreras (CHC - C)||40||32.0||-8.0||
If not for a strained hamstring that limited him to just 117 games last season, Contreras likely would have been a top-three catcher. As it is, he still finished ranked sixth at the position, swatting 21 home runs, knocking in 74 RBI, and throwing in five steals. All the underlying numbers support his breakout, as he boasted a 10.5% walk rate with a .223 ISO and a passable 22.9% strikeout rate. Batting in the middle of a strong Cubs lineup, expect Contreras to be one of the top catchers in fantasy again in 2018.
|28||Buster Posey (SF - C,1B) DL60||41||31.0||-10.0||
From a fantasy standpoint, Posey had perhaps the worst full season of his career last year, hitting just 12 home runs and knocking in just 67 RBI, though he still finished as the third-best catcher in fantasy baseball. But his dip in performance was largely based on his lack of supporting cast, as he had the second-highest batting average and on-base percentage of his career. That supporting cast should look much better this year with Andrew McCutchen and Evan Longoria on board. Posey will be just 31 years old on Opening Day, and should still have another year or two before the inevitable "catcher decline." Though he may have been surpassed by Gary Sanchez, he's still an easy second choice at the position.
|29||Travis Shaw (MIL - 3B)||42||44.0||+2.0||
Shaw had a true breakout season with the Brewers, swatting 31 home runs, totaling 101 RBI, and throwing in 10 steals. His ability to hold his own against lefties led to him keeping the everyday job at third base, and though he struggled a bit down the stretch as he fought through injuries, there are few warning signs heading into this season. Shaw set career-bests in walk percentage and strikeout rate, and he should be a fine fantasy option at the hot corner this season.
|30||Billy Hamilton (CIN - CF)||43||38.0||-5.0||
If we knew Billy Hamilton would have a job all year, it might make sense to add his 60 steals and just deal with the crummy batting average and power numbers, but he has been so bad that 400+ at bats is nowhere close to a guarantee.
|31||Yasiel Puig (LAD - RF)||44||54.0||+10.0||
Puig had the best fantasy campaign of his career in 2017 and it wasn't even close with 28 HR and 1 SB. In fact, batted ball numbers indicate his BA may further climb in 2018.
|32||Trevor Story (COL - SS)||47||52.0||+5.0||
Story had a disappointing 2017. hitting just 24 home runs with a .239 batting average. He improved significantly in the second half, coming in with an .834 OPS, but even those gains can't make up for his nearly 35% strikeout rate. Story's production - even if he repeats his 2017 numbers - isn't awful, but with Brendan Rodgers waiting in the wings, it's unclear if it will be enough for him to hold his job all year. In the end, Story is a high-risk, high-reward player, who could easily hit 35 home runs or be out of a job by July. Whether you draft him depends on your risk tolerance and how desperate you are for power.
|33||DJ LeMahieu (COL - 2B)||46||56.0||+10.0||
LeMahieu is one of those players that fantasy owners hate to draft. He contributes significantly in two largely forgotten categories (batting average and runs scored) and is just sort of there, without helping or hurting, in the other categories. The good thing is that LeMahieu rarely misses time - he's played in at least 146 games in each of the last four seasons - and his home park pretty much guarantees that he'll contribute. But there are no signs that a power jump or an uptick in stolen bases is imminent, making LeMahieu the grilled cheese sandwich of fantasy baseball (reliable but unexciting without much upside).
|34||Domingo Santana (MIL - RF)||49||47.0||-2.0||
If you draft Santana, just know that the Brewers may trade him to a team like the Rays, who's ballpark would be a big blow to Santana's production. If he stays in Milwaukee, we are looking at a potential repeat of 30 HR and 15 SB with plenty of R and RBI.
|35||Ender Inciarte (ATL - CF)||50||65.0||+15.0||
While Ender won't exactly provide power or RBIs, you can expect a .290 BA with 20+ SB and seeing that he was one of only nine players who did that last year, it's fair to say he is a solid 10th or 11th round pick.
|36||Ozzie Albies (ATL - 2B)||54||69.0||+15.0||
Albies has a historically good season for a 20 year old in the majors, but that came without many homers or RBI. Repeating that efficiency as a sophomore will be a challenge, but he does possess 20 HR/40 SB upside and may end up the breakout of the season.
|37||Carlos Santana (PHI - 1B,RF)||55||76.0||+21.0||
Santana had a decent season overall and played in at least 152 games for the fifth-consecutive season. But his home run total dropped from 34 to 23, suggesting that 2016's surge was an outlier. He should have the opportunity to move his home run number back in the opposite direction, however, as his move to the Phillies and hitter-friendly Citizens Bank Ballpark should lead to a bit of a power spike. Regardless, you know what you'll generally get from Santana - a mediocre average, decent counting stats, and a bunch of walks. Although he's more valuable in points formats and OBP leagues, his safety is valuable in rotisserie leagues, too.
|38||Jake Lamb (ARI - 3B) DL60||57||73.0||+16.0||
Lamb was superb in the first-half last year, but really fell off in the second-half. With the humidor now in place, don't expect 30 HR or 100 RBI again this year. That .250 BA won't seem as manageable without all the power in place.
|39||Ian Desmond (COL - 1B,LF)||61||67.0||+6.0||
Weighed down by a league-leading 62.7% ground-ball rate, Desmond failed to take advantage of playing in Coors Field, hitting just seven home runs in 95 games last season. He missed significant time with a fractured hand early and a strained calf in the middle of the season, and just never seemed to get in a groove. Despite his troubles, he still managed to steal 15 bases in limited time, and his .274 batting average certainly didn't hurt you in today's landscape. With dual-eligibility at both first base and outfield, Desmond should be able to bounce back to being a reliable fantasy option if he can get get the ball in the air a bit more next season.
|40||Chris Taylor (LAD - 2B,SS,LF,CF)||59||57.0||-2.0||
The first 250 at-bats of Taylor's career were uninspiring, but he had always been a solid hitter in the minors. A repeat of his 21/17 season seems unlikely, however, so don't draft him as the top 50 hitter he was in 2017.
|41||Mike Moustakas (MIL - 3B,DH)||58||64.0||+6.0||
For a while, Moose seemed like a bust, but he has been improving each year lately and suddenly became a 38 HR masher in 2018. With him finally signing, he becomes a fringe top 100 pick. It would have been substantially better had he landed in the Bronx.
|42||Ronald Acuna (ATL - LF,CF)||62||60.0||-2.0||
While there is no doubt about it that Acuna has MVP type upside, he is still extremely young and his swing has too many holes in it. The hype has gone too far and we shouldn't expect a Cody Bellinger type season from Acuna. Plus, he is starting the season in the minor leagues.
|43||Gregory Polanco (PIT - LF,RF) DL10||63||79.0||+16.0||
Polanco has always left fantasy owners with the feeling like he should be much better than he is. With excellent speed and burgeoning power, he has all the makings of a perennial 20-20 player, but injuries have held him back. He drastically cut his strikeout rate last year, however, and has embarked on an extreme training regimen this offseason. If he can manage to stay healthy for most of the season, he could finally have that breakout year. But he warned - the total lack of supporting cast in Pittsburgh could keep in check his runs scored and RBI numbers, even if he does have that breakout season fantasy owners are waiting for.
|44||Ryan Zimmerman (WSH - 1B)||64||78.0||+14.0||
Zimmerman went largely undrafted in 2017, but turned in one of the most surprising seasons in recent memory. Buoyed by a torrid April in which he bashed 11 home runs and batted over .400, Zimmerman set career highs in both home runs and RBI in 2018. He slowed down a bit in the second half but he kept his power gains, showing that he was a fantasy-relevant first base option regardless of his hot start. Even if Zimmerman regresses as expected, there's plenty of room for him to remain a fantasy-relevant option even with decreased numbers. There are always question marks surrounding his health, but don't be afraid to buy into last year if your league gives you a discount.
|45||Adam Eaton (WSH - LF,CF,RF)||65||81.0||+16.0||
We only got to see 23 games from Eaton last year, but he looked as good as ever before. With a full season in 2018, we can expect 10 to 15 homers, 15 SB and a quality average to go with plenty of runs scored.
|46||Ian Happ (CHC - 2B,3B,LF,CF,RF)||69||70.0||+1.0||
If we can guarantee Happ a full season worth of at-bats, we'd be looking at a middle infielder with 35 homers and double-digit steals. The problem is that the Cubs are so loaded that he will probably only see 400 at-bats unless an injury opens up full playing time.
|47||Matt Carpenter (STL - 1B,2B,3B)||70||77.0||+7.0||
Carpenter's batting average dropped to a career-low .241, but the rest of his numbers remained almost entirely consistent with his career norms. He may have been one of the few victims of the fly-ball revolution, as his large jump in fly-ball rate (50.8%) led to a career low in BABIP (.274), despite a strong hard-contact percentage. In the end, don't let the .241 batting average fool you. Carpenter has not declined much if at all, and he should once again put up excellent numbers in 2018 batting at or near the top of a strong Cardinals lineup.
|48||Jay Bruce (NYM - 1B,RF)||71||74.0||+3.0||
Bruce had another fine year at the plate last season, hitting 36 home runs and totaling 101 RBI between his time with the Mets and the Indians. He'll return to the Mets on a three-year deal, playing a mix of outfield and first base and batting in the middle of the order. Bruce's underlying metrics have remained steady, as his walk rate and strikeout rate remained generally consistent with his career norms. All in all, there's little reason to expect a decline from Bruce heading into 2018, and another season of 30-plus home runs, around 100 RBI, and a .250-ish batting average can be penciled in with confidence.
|49||Javier Baez (CHC - 2B,3B,SS)||75||66.0||-9.0||
It is easy to forget that Baez is still just 25 years old and that we likely haven't seen his prime yet. That may be 30 HR and 10 SB with a .280 average. For a middle infielder, that is well worth a top 100 pick.
|50||Josh Bell (PIT - 1B)||74||92.0||+18.0||
Overall, it was a mildly disappointing season from Bell, who despite being a high-average hitter in the minors, struggled to the tune of a .255 batting average. Both his walk rate and strikeout rate were significantly worse than he showed in his 45-game stretch in the majors in 2016, and he simply didn't take the leap that some people expected. Still, Bell did hit 26 home runs and made strides over the second half of the season, so there's reason for optimism going forward. But there's little currently to suggest a true breakout in 2018, and he should be considered more of a roster-filler than a potential difference-maker in fantasy leagues in 2018
|51||Kyle Schwarber (CHC - LF)||77||86.0||+9.0||
There is significant bust potential with Schwarber, who struck out 150 times in just 129 games while batting .211. With that said, he may be the only catcher besides Gary Sanchez with a shot at hitting 40 bombs. If you want to buy a lottery ticket, Schwarber is your man.
|52||Justin Turner (LAD - 3B)||82||48.0||-34.0||
Turner missed time with leg injuries but he proved, once again, that he is a completely changed hitter. He set career-bests in walk rate, strikeout rate, and OPS, and even threw in seven steals to boot. Injuries will always be an issue - last year's 130 games played were the second-most of Turner's career - but there is no reason to doubt his production when he's in the lineup. Forget the part-time player that the Mets cast off years ago - Turner's a legitimate fantasy stud when he plays, and is worthy of an early-mid round pick.
|53||Michael Conforto (NYM - LF,CF,RF)||80||94.0||+14.0||
This may be the biggest lottery pick of the fantasy season. If his shoulder injury lingers, it will be a waste of a pick, but we are looking at a player with .280/40/100 potential if he gets a full season.
|54||Evan Longoria (SF - 3B)||81||95.0||+14.0||
Longoria was fantastic in 2016, so his 2017 season may have seemed like a major disappointment. The fact is, however, that it was very much in line with what he did in both 2014 and 2015, so don't be banking on a bounce-back.
|55||Eugenio Suarez (CIN - 3B)||83||105.0||+22.0||
Suarez doesn't offer much in the way of batting average or stolen bases, but he is useful in the other three main categories and makes for a reliable mid-round third basemen.
|56||Odubel Herrera (PHI - CF)||84||113.0||+29.0||
At this point, it is quite clear that Herrera will give us a .280 batting average with a hint of power and speed. It is nice to have a reliable asset like that later on in drafts, but his upside is limited.
|57||Justin Bour (PHI - 1B)||85||101.0||+16.0||
There's little reason to doubt Bour's ability at this point, as he's established himself as a legitimate power hitter over the last three seasons. An increase in hard-contact rate led to a 26% HR/FB rate last season, which was 13th-best in the league despite Bour playing his home games in Marlins Park. The total lack of supporting cast this season is certainly worrisome for Bour, and his RBI totals may take a dip. But he should still be considered a relatively safe source of home runs heading into 2018.
|58||Manuel Margot (SD - CF)||86||82.0||-4.0||
Margot played more than expected last season, but didn't put up nearly the counting stats fantasy owners hoped for. His upside is that of a 20/35 power/speed combo, but virtually all projections have him performing near the mediocre stats he put up in 2017.
|59||Adam Duvall (ATL - 1B,LF)||87||85.0||-2.0||
For two straight seasons now, Duvall has hit 30+ HR and driven in 99+ runs. The batting average isn't pretty, but won't single-handedly kill your team in that category.
|60||J.T. Realmuto (MIA - C,1B)||88||68.0||-20.0||
While Realmuto showed last season that his .303 batting average from 2016 was a fluke, he did tack on 6 more homers and 17 extra RBIs. He is also the most stolen base friendly catcher, so depending on the makeup of your team, you may want to target him toward the middle of your drafts.
|61||Paul DeJong (STL - 2B,SS)||90||80.0||-10.0||
The batted ball data suggests that Dejong's power is legitimate. He does have holes in his wing, however, and may see the batting average drop to around .255. Still, with 30+ homers and at shortstop, that is a quality mid-round pick.
|62||Dexter Fowler (STL - CF,RF) DL60||94||114.0||+20.0||
Fowler puts up quality numbers whenever he is on the field, but he has only played more than 125 games once in the past five seasons. If he can stay healthy, we can bet on 20 HR, 10 SB and 90 runs, but that is a big if.
|63||Yadier Molina (STL - C)||100||89.0||-11.0||
Molina's value often came from just a heavy workload, as his ability to compile stats usually resulted in a top-12 finish at the catcher position, even if it didn't seem like a great ride. But his 2017 was truly miraculous, as he swatted 18 home runs and stole nine bases, both of which were the second-best marks at his career. His solid year was backed up by a decline in his ground-ball percentage and career-high in hard-contact rate, suggesting it was no fluke. Molina has seen an incredibly high workload in his career and will be 36 years old this season, so the ride should likely end sometime soon. But at an incredibly weak position, he's certainly a safe bet to provide decent and starting-caliber fantasy numbers.
|64||Steven Souza (ARI - RF)||102||107.0||+5.0||
Souza certainly won't help you in the batting average department, but he is a quality source of homers and steals. Bonus points if you play in an OBP league.
|65||Wilson Ramos (PHI - C,DH)||104||106.0||+2.0||
Ramos missed the majority of 2017 recovering from a torn ACL he had suffered the year prior and, as a whole, underwhelmed on the season, with just a .737 OPS in 64 games. But his poor numbers were largely the result of a terrible start as he shook off the rust. He rebounded in August to bat .274, and then truly rounded into form in September when he batted .317 with five home runs and a .600 slugging percentage. His last two months are more in line with what we can expect from Ramos this year in a full season with the Rays. He's certainly below the elite tier of catcher, but he should be one of the few reliable options at the position in 2018.
|66||Carlos Gonzalez (COL - RF)||106||129.0||+23.0||
Ok, so maybe Car-Go isn't quite a stud anymore, but he is significantly better than his overall 2017 numbers indicated. Apparently, he was playing through an injury to start the season, but once he got right, we were looking at the same ole' numbers. He batted .314/.390/.531 over the second half, thanks primarily to a September in which he was the best hitter on the planet. We may get a top 50 fantasy player 150 picks later if he can stay on the field for the Rockies.
|67||Eric Thames (MIL - 1B,LF,RF)||103||109.0||+6.0||
We all rememeber how phenomenal Thames was to start last season, but don't forget that he only hit 8 homers and drove in 20 runs in the second half last year. That isn't to say he will be a complete flop, but be advised that his 2018 numbers are unlikely to mirror his 2017 breakout.
|68||Maikel Franco (PHI - 3B)||107||124.0||+17.0||
Franco has been around long enough that you may think we know exactly who he is, but he's still just 24 years old and could break out into a 30 HR, .270 BA type of monster any time. If you need a lottery ticket late in drafts, Franco fits the description.
|69||Corey Dickerson (PIT - LF,DH)||109||116.0||+7.0||
Dickerson's batting average bounced back up last season to his career line of .280 and the power stayed despite playing his home games in Tampa. He should have no trouble repeating his 25 HR, .280 BA output in Pittsburgh if he can stay healthy.
|70||Scooter Gennett (CIN - 2B,3B,LF)||112||103.0||-9.0||
While it is reasonable to expect Scooter to take a major step back after last year's major breakout, even regression would leave him as a .270 hitter with 20 homers which is a plenty useful fantasy middle infielder.
|71||David Peralta (ARI - LF,RF)||105||141.0||+36.0||
Peralta is as good of a bet as you will find in the middle of drafts to bat .290, but he might not even provide a dozen homers with the humidor now in action.
|72||Todd Frazier (NYM - 3B)||113||128.0||+15.0||
Frazier had a rough year splitting time between the White Sox and the Yankees, but he still clubbed 27 home runs. Although his batting average was anemic even by his standards (just .213), he set a career high in walk rate at 14.4% and his strikeout rate remained consistent. Now batting in the middle of suddenly solid Mets lineup and playing close to his home town, Frazier should be able to once again top 25 home runs with decent counting stats. If he gets his steals back up into the double digits, he could be a draft day bargain.
|73||Orlando Arcia (MIL - SS)||114||108.0||-6.0||
Arcia may be a defense first shortstop, but he also offered fantasy owners 15 homers, 14 steals and a .277 batting average last year. Even a repeat would be welcomed in fantasy lineups, but he was just 22 years old last year so perhaps he takes another step or two forward.
|74||Jose Martinez (STL - 1B,LF,RF)||129||142.0||+13.0|
|75||Ryan McMahon (COL - 1B,2B,3B)||125||155.0||+30.0||
McMahon batted .355 with 69 extra-base hits and 11 steals in just 119 minor league games last season. He offers elite rookie potential playing half of his games in Coors if he can earn the starting job out of Spring Training.
|76||Jose Peraza (CIN - 2B,SS)||118||127.0||+9.0||
Peraza is certainly no source of power, but he is a .277 hitter through his MLB career thus far and averages 34 stolen bases per 162 games played. He is a safe source of steals late into drafts as we can virtually guarantee he holds onto the starting job all season even if he struggles a bit.
|77||Matt Kemp (LAD - LF,RF)||130||139.0||+9.0||
Kemp can still mash, but his durability and defensive liabilities may keep him out of the lineup for a third of the season. The .275 BA with 20 HR and 65 RBI he gave us last year is about what we should expect in 2018.
|78||Starlin Castro (MIA - 2B)||117||148.0||+31.0||
Castro does take a sizeable ballpark factor dip this season which could knock his HR, RBI and R down, but let's try to not be so quick to forget that he batted .300 last season and was on pace for over 20 homers for the second straight season if it weren't for his injury.
|79||Scott Kingery (PHI - 2B,3B,SS)||132||119.0||-13.0||
Kingery has the skill-set to push the envelope. If he ends up slated to start opening day, consider him a top 200 overall fantasy player, otherwise he is merely a draft and stash play for deeper leagues.
|80||Brandon Belt (SF - 1B,LF)||121||152.0||+31.0||
Belt's batting average dipped last season as he struggled to stay healthy, but if he can get on the field this year, we know Belt should return to delivering a .275 BA with 15 to 20 HR, 65+ RBI and 70+ runs. That isn't a great fantasy player, but it is a useful bench asset for sure.
|81||Cesar Hernandez (PHI - 2B)||119||133.0||+14.0||
It may seem like a boring pick to you, but Hernandez has now hit over .290 in consecutive full seasons and scored 85 runs last year. He won't hit for much power, but the 15 to 20 stolen bases certainly help.
|82||Addison Russell (CHC - SS) RST||123||120.0||-3.0||
Russell is more well known as a result of the Cubs' success and his wizardry in the field than for his offensive prowess. The potential for 25 HR is there for the youngster, but his .240 career batting average tells the story about his limits.
|83||Michael Taylor (WSH - CF)||126||126.0||‐||
We knew Taylor possessed fantasy potential for a while, but he finally put it together last season. In less than 400 at-bats, he posted 19 homers and 17 SB with a solid .271 BA. Pro-rated to a full-season, we could be looking at a 25/25 type of player.
|84||Lewis Brinson (MIA - LF,CF)||134||135.0||+1.0||
Lew was beyond abysmal in his cup of coffee last year, batting .106 with just 1 steal, but in the long-run, that is not who he is. More likely, we are looking at a .250 hitter with both power and speed in the same mold as Carlos Gomez or Michael Taylor.
|85||Yasmani Grandal (LAD - C)||136||125.0||-11.0||
Grandal had a fine fantasy season for a catcher last season, swatting 22 home runs. But his production dropped off in the second half, and by the end of the season, he had lost significant playing time to Austin Barnes. In the Dodgers' 15 playoff games, Grandal started just two of them, suggesting that he should be in a platoon (at best) with Barnes this year. Still, Grandal has passed the 20-homer plateau in each of the last two years and plays fine defense, so unless word comes out that his playing time will be significantly reduced this year, he can still be drafted as a borderline starter in mixed leagues.
|86||Nick Williams (PHI - LF,CF,RF)||142||190.0||+48.0||
The former top prospect is flying under the radar despite offering 25 homer potential with a near 300 batting average. He will even steal some bags for you.
|87||Amed Rosario (NYM - SS)||137||136.0||-1.0||
There is a little too much hype surrounding the offensively raw rookie who hit just .248 with no power last season. Sure, he batted .328 in Triple-A, but Las Vegas is the minor league equivalent to Coors Field, and the power was still absent. He may steal 20 bags in the Bigs this season, though.
|88||Josh Harrison (PIT - 2B,3B,LF)||135||143.0||+8.0||
Harrison's power has been up and down over the last few seasons, but you can be sure he will get you a .270 batting average with double digit steals and around 60 runs scored. The homers may or not be there, but that is a quality late-round utility player.
|89||Jedd Gyorko (STL - 1B,2B,3B,SS)||140||223.0||+83.0||
Jedd has 50 HRs in his last 825 at bats and batted .272 last season. If he remains the starter, fantasy owners will have a bargain utility player late in drafts.
|90||Aaron Altherr (PHI - LF,CF,RF)||133||158.0||+25.0||
We've seen Altherr go white-hot for an extended period of time so thee is definitely upside to be found here, but the second-half did not paint a pretty picture so proceed with risk in mind.
|91||David Dahl (COL - LF,CF,RF)||143||131.0||-12.0||
Dahl has five-tool upside and could very well turn into another Carlos Gonzalez for the Rockies. The issue here, is that the Rockies are expected to start him in the minor leagues and he'll have to knock off an established major leaguer or two to get his crack at big league at-bats.
|92||Albert Almora (CHC - CF)||186||249.0||+63.0|
|93||Joc Pederson (LAD - LF,CF)||160||179.0||+19.0||
Pederson made the Dodgers' roster and they are teaching him to play some first base. He might not get 300 at-bats once again this season, but he if can find a way on the field, his upside is tantalizing.
|94||Jesse Winker (CIN - LF,RF) DL60||159||200.0||+41.0||
Winker is the player who will slip under the radar despite being a former top 40 prospect then proceeding to rake in the majors after his debut. In 47 games, he batted .298/.375/.529, which if extended to a full season, compares favorably to George Springer and Andrew McCutchen. Now, he won't steal more than a handful of bases, but even without it, he is likely to be vastly overlooked.
|95||Brandon Crawford (SF - SS)||148||138.0||-10.0||
With Crawford's power keeping him below 15 homers and his lack of steals, Crawford's fantasy impact will be dependent on whether his batting average ends up around the .275 mark we got two years go or the .250 mark that he has sat at virtually his entire career. The RBIs and runs will be there, but without the average, he is only a fringe fantasy asset.
|96||Scott Schebler (CIN - CF,RF)||144||177.0||+33.0||
You may not like the .233 batting average that he offered fantasy owners last season, but he did knock 30 homers and there is no subsitute for that kind of late round power.
|97||Keon Broxton (MIL - CF) MiLB||168||156.0||-12.0||
Broxton is a quality fantasy asset, having it 20 homers and swiped 20 bases last year, but his batting average is low plus the Brewers don't have room for him to play. At this point, he is merely a stash or a waiver wire watch.
|98||Jose Bautista (PHI - 3B,LF,RF)||173||184.0||+11.0|
|99||Lucas Duda (ATL - 1B,DH)||166||229.0||+63.0||
Duda's batting average killed fantasy owners last year, but he has managed 27+ homers in each of the last three seasons that he stayed healthy. That makes up for the batting average deficiencies and makes him a worthwhile fantasy bench bat.
|100||Ketel Marte (ARI - 2B,SS)||145||187.0||+42.0||
Marte has now hit just 8 homers over his first three seasons, but he won't hurt you in batting average and could steal 20 bases if he gets a full season of playing time in Arizona this year.
|101||Austin Barnes (LAD - C,2B)||150||121.0||-29.0||
The Dodgers used Barnes and Grandal in a platoon type situation last year. That doesn't mean Barnes is guaranteed at-bats, however, in 2018. If he does, it is safe to expect him to take a step back well outside of the top 12 at his position.
|102||Jose Pirela (SD - 1B,2B,LF,RF)||188||215.0||+27.0|
|103||Nick Markakis (ATL - RF)||174||199.0||+25.0|
|104||Hunter Pence (SF - LF,RF)||162||165.0||+3.0||
Pence was once a player who never missed a ballgame, but over the past three seasons he has been struggling through injuries. He still has 20 homer upside with a solid batting average but the steals are gone.
|105||Curtis Granderson (MIL - LF,CF,RF,DH)||182||178.0||-4.0|
|106||Colin Moran (PIT - 1B,3B)||191||231.0||+40.0|
|107||Chris Iannetta (COL - C)||177||140.0||-37.0|
|108||Gerardo Parra (COL - LF,RF)||183||230.0||+47.0|
|109||Austin Hedges (SD - C)||172||147.0||-25.0|
|110||Dansby Swanson (ATL - SS)||165||146.0||-19.0||
After starting his MLB career with a bang in 2016, Swanson has a rough 2017, batting .232 with just 6 homers and 3 stolen bases. The bat will come along eventually, but it may not be this year. With that said, the upside is there for him to be a top 12 shortstop if he puts it all together in 2018.
|111||Asdrubal Cabrera (PHI - 2B,3B,SS)||167||149.0||-18.0||
If you are looking for upside, you've come to the wrong place, but in terms of a floor, you won't find a better middle infielder late into drafts. He is a strong bet to hit 15 homers with a solid batting average and both runs and RBI help for your fantasy squad.
|112||Alex Avila (ARI - C,1B)||185||171.0||-14.0||
If you whiffed on your top catching targets, there is no need to fret, you can get Avila late and he may just be a top five catcher this year. Last season, his batted ball rates were through the roof. Even with Chase Field adding the humidor, he may be in for a breakout campaign.
|113||Jason Heyward (CHC - CF,RF)||180||166.0||-14.0||
It may seem as though Heyward will never hit sufficiently again, but it is easy to forget that he is still young. There is untapped upside here so feel free to take a flier, especially in a an OBP league where even his floor isn't worthless.
|114||Chris Owings (ARI - 2B,SS,CF,RF)||171||160.0||-11.0|
|115||Austin Jackson (NYM - LF,CF,RF)||214||334.0||+120.0|
|116||Matt Wieters (WSH - C)||203||186.0||-17.0||
Wieters never quite lived up to his lofty potential and struggled to stay healthy for a while, but at this point in his career, we have a pretty good idea that he will offer us a lackluster batting average and enough pop to be serviceable as a C2.
|117||Tyler Flowers (ATL - C)||197||191.0||-6.0|
|118||Hunter Renfroe (SD - LF,RF)||156||185.0||+29.0||
Renfroe did not provide a useful batting average last year, but he does have 30 to 35 homer pop if he gets enough at-bats. With that, obviously, comes plenty of runs and RBIs.
|119||Victor Robles (WSH - RF)||175||196.0||+21.0||
There is a reason Robles is among the top prospects in baseball. Not only does he carry all five tools, but his stats have been downright amazing in the minors against much older competition. It is only a matter of time before he forces his way into a big league lineup and when he does, you will want to own him quickly.
|120||Joe Panik (SF - 2B)||161||137.0||-24.0|
|121||Yasmany Tomas (ARI - LF) MiLB||204||193.0||-11.0||
Tomas has tremendous upside and has flashed it for half a season before his 2017 injury. The issue is that the D-Backs have a loaded outfield so he will fight for playing time. If he gets plugged into the starting lineup, you should pick him up immediately.
|122||Nick Senzel (CIN - 3B) MiLB||202||206.0||+4.0||
Senzel may not make the big leagues out of Spring Training, but he is the top draft and stash candidate in fantasy baseball. He should help in all five categories from the moment he arrives in Cincy.
|123||Eduardo Escobar (ARI - 2B,3B,SS,DH)||228||207.0||-21.0|
|124||Wilmer Flores (NYM - 1B,2B,3B)||213||226.0||+13.0||
Through his career, Flores has only given fantasy owners 350 or more at bats once. If he can compile 500 at-bats, we should see 25 to 30 homers to go with his steady .260 batting average. It further helps that he qualifies at three positions.
|125||Travis d'Arnaud (NYM - C) DL60||195||163.0||-32.0||
While d'Arnaud hasn't offered fantasy owners much over the first handful of years, try to remember that he is a former top prospect and that catchers develop much more slowly offensivley than other positions. He has the upside to swat 20+ homers while batting around .250.
|126||Freddy Galvis (SD - SS)||194||234.0||+40.0||
Galvis is never going to hit for average, and now that he is moving from Philly to the Padres, his power should dip, but there is still fantasy value in a shortstop who knocked 32 homers and stole 31 bases over the past two seasons with plenty of runs and RBIs.
|127||Ben Zobrist (CHC - 2B,LF,RF)||220||154.0||-66.0||
There is no doubt about it that Zobrist is on the last leg of his career, but after hitting .270 or higher for five consecutive years, his .232 line screams positive regression. Zobrist will still hit double-digit homers and tack on both runs and RBI for you.
|128||Manny Pina (MIL - C)||227||210.0||-17.0|
|129||Mark Reynolds (WSH - 1B)||206||224.0||+18.0|
|130||Francisco Mejia (SD - C,DH)||208||181.0||-27.0||
If you've got a deep bench, Mejia is a terrific late-round flier to take a shot on. He's got the talent to force his way onto the Indians' opening day roster, and if he does, he will likely get 3B at bats while qualifying at catcher. Some have said he can bat .280 as a rookie with decent pop.
|131||Jorge Alfaro (PHI - C)||205||150.0||-55.0|
|132||Brad Miller (MIL - 1B,2B,SS,DH) DFA||240||263.0||+23.0|
|133||Brandon Nimmo (NYM - LF,CF,RF)||222||277.0||+55.0|
|134||Kolten Wong (STL - 2B)||216||225.0||+9.0||
If Wong could stay on the field for a full season, we would see that he has 15 HR, 15 SB upside to go with his .285 batting average from last season. With that said, he has only managed even 420 at bats just twice in his career so a full bill of health may be a pipe dream.
|135||Dominic Smith (NYM - 1B,LF)||249||270.0||+21.0|
|136||Jarrod Dyson (ARI - LF,CF,RF) DL60||221||235.0||+14.0|
|137||Derek Dietrich (MIA - 1B,2B,3B,LF)||229||289.0||+60.0|
|138||Jose Reyes (NYM - 2B,3B,SS)||250||183.0||-67.0||
Reyes is far removed from hitting .337 with near 80 stolen bases, but he does still offer 20+ steals to go with a sudden on-surge of power that can help your fantasy team from multiple positions late into drafts.
|139||Martin Prado (MIA - 3B) DL60||252||264.0||+12.0|
|140||Enrique Hernandez (LAD - 2B,3B,SS,LF,CF,RF)||234||323.0||+89.0|
|141||J.P. Crawford (PHI - 3B,SS)||223||182.0||-41.0||
Crawford was once a top 20 prospect and many considered him a favorite to eventually take over as number one overall. He has struggled in the minors, however, but the tools are not gone. The Phillies' new long-term shortstop is your classic case of a big-time boom or bust rookie. Invest at your own risk.
|142||Hernan Perez (MIL - 2B,3B,SS,LF,CF,RF)||265||213.0||-52.0|
|143||Raimel Tapia (COL - LF,RF) MiLB||255||238.0||-17.0|
|144||Pat Valaika (COL - 1B,2B,3B,SS)||247||365.0||+118.0|
|145||Kurt Suzuki (ATL - C)||293||173.0||-120.0||
Last season, Suzuki was suddenly among the most efficient hitters in all of baseball. If you are counting on that in 2018, you are in for a wake-up call, but that doesn't mean he can't produce as a fringe C1 if the Braves continue to feed him at-bats.
|146||Cory Spangenberg (SD - 2B,3B,LF)||266||251.0||-15.0|
|147||Stephen Vogt (MIL - C) DL60||257||236.0||-21.0|
|148||Andrew Toles (LAD - LF,CF)||267||281.0||+14.0|
|149||Nick Hundley (SF - C)||351||321.0||-30.0|
|150||Tucker Barnhart (CIN - C)||290||194.0||-96.0|
|151||Tom Murphy (COL - C) MiLB||278||296.0||+18.0|
|152||Adrian Gonzalez (NYM - 1B) FA||280||279.0||-1.0|
|153||Adam Frazier (PIT - 2B,LF,RF)||285||256.0||-29.0|
|154||Brian Anderson (MIA - 3B,RF)||282||288.0||+6.0|
|155||Howie Kendrick (WSH - 2B,LF) DL60||312||301.0||-11.0|
|156||Francisco Cervelli (PIT - C)||288||257.0||-31.0|
|157||Franchy Cordero (SD - LF,CF) DL60||298.0|
|158||Johan Camargo (ATL - 2B,3B,SS)||315||260.0||-55.0|
|159||Jordy Mercer (PIT - SS) DL10||299||266.0||-33.0|
|160||Harrison Bader (STL - LF,CF,RF)||300||316.0||+16.0|
|161||Jon Jay (ARI - LF,CF,RF,DH)||289||343.0||+54.0|
|162||Alex Verdugo (LAD - LF,CF)||303||292.0||-11.0|
|163||Luis Urias (SD - 2B,SS)||308.0|
|164||Matt Adams (STL - 1B,LF)||313||291.0||-22.0|
|165||Victor Caratini (CHC - C,1B)||351.0|
