2019 Outfield Fantasy Rankings

As we’ve been hinting during the rollout of our infield rankings, the outfield is shallow.  This is particularly true if you play in 15-team formats with five outfielders.  Sure, you can argue that the two best fantasy options play the position and Ronald Acuna could become the third best player in fantasy, but if you […]

2019 Top 15 Third Base Prospects

As we look at third base, it’s no surprise that Vlad Jr. is atop the list. However, as we’ve written about previously, he is likely to outgrow the position with a move to first base seemingly inevitable. Nick Senzel is also likely not to stay at third. In fact, he’s already spent time at second […]

2019 Top 15 Second Base Prospects

There is a lot of strength in second base in the minor leagues and a plus hit tool seems to be the popular tool. Keston Hiura and Nick Madrigal lead the list and both have double-plus hit tools with the ceiling of a .300 hitter and a .400 OBP. Garrett Hampson isn’t far behind and […]

2019 Top 15 First Base Prospects

When putting the first base list together, our Top 100 only had two players listed at the position and one of them, Yordan Alvarez is being moved to the outfield. It’s not that the minor leagues are void of first baseman, instead, it’s more a product of players who can hit, but need to move […]

2019 Top 15 Catcher Prospects

Catchers have historically been a weak position throughout baseball and particularly in fantasy baseball. Based on what is coming through the minor leagues, that could be changing. Most notably, there are catchers moving through the system with advanced hit tools. At the top of the list is Francisco Mejia. While in the end, Mejia might […]

2019 Just Missed Prospects

The list of players I wanted to include in the Top 100 hit 118, so I decided to produce a list of 10 players who just missed the list.  These players are NOT in any order but are simply names of deserving players for inclusion. Enjoy the list and please click on the baseball card […]

2019 Third Base Fantasy Rankings

As we move from shortstop to third base, the same theme carries through.  The position is deep.  There are viable full-time regulars at the top and all the way down through the mid to late teens.  You can argue that Josh Donaldson has a chance to be a Top 5 third baseman if he can […]

2019 Top 100 Prospects (1 through 25)

We continue the rollout of our 2019 Top 100 prospects with numbers 1 through 25.  There’s some guy named Vlad Jr. at the top and we can’t remember a prospect with his level of hype coming into the season in a long time.  He’s got the talent to bring the goods, but if he stumbles, […]

2019 Top 100 Prospects (26 through 50)

We continue the rollout of our 2019 Top 100 prospects with numbers 26 through 50.  There are some big names in this section of the list including Mets first baseman Peter Alonso and Tampa Bay right-hander Brent Honeywell.  Alonso has double-plus power and makes enough contact that he should be able to get to that […]

2019 Shortstop Fantasy Rankings

When ranking our prospects, shortstops always gets extra credit given the premium defensive position they play and in general, because of the lack of depth in the Major Leagues at the position.  However, in the fantasy game, the lack of MLB shortstop depth is no longer an issue.  In fact, four or as many as […]
