Don't be shellfish...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

I don’t know about you, and let me preface this by saying most if not all of my league mates at least know I contribute fantasy baseball (OPS) content, but I keep getting the old “But, he’s a Catcher/Shortstop so he’s worth more” and from a position scarcity perspective, that’s obviously true. However, I am A) going for the win-now so all I want is to take the lead in certain (all) categories and B) position scarcity-schmarcity: give me the best available.

So it’s time for your 5×5 (HR,SB,R,RBI,OPS) rankings for both position scarcity and position schmarcity.

FYI, I use the FVAR (fantasy value above replacement) approach to fantasy valuation vs. SGP (standard gains points) approach since I don’t have all of your leagues’ current and historical information. Feel free to look this up or ask below.

For reference, here are the positional replacement 5×5 values and associated players (the 5 z-scores for each category are summed up; the sum is adjusted in each position by this positional replacement value i.e. each Catcher gets .73 added to their z-sum while each First Baseman only gets .01 added to their z-sum i.e. all catchers values are inflated more because of the lower replacement-value):

C = -.73 (Dioner Navarro). Some may think catchers are more rare in general, however, I’m using ESPN, 12 team rosters meaning you only need 1 Catcher compared to middle infielders where you need 12 Shortstops, 12 Second Baseman and then 12 more Middle-Infielders.

1B = -.01 (Eric Hosmer)

2B = -.90 (Emilio Bonifacio)

3B = -.16 (Martin Prado & Matt Dominguez)

SS = -1.22 (Chris Owings). According to this approach and MLB numbers to date, SS’s have the lowest replacement value i.e. are the most significantly adjusted.

OF = -.12 (Gerardo Parra)

U = + .33 (Matt Joyce). A positive replacement value means we actually subtract .33 from each Utility player.

Excluding pitchers, here are your Position Scarcity incorporated Top 20 (up to date as of 8/7):

1. Mike Trout (still in a tier (over 1.00 z-sum difference) all on his own)

2. Giancarlo Stanton

3. Jose Abreu

4. Andrew McCutchen

5. Paul Goldschmidt

6. Jose Bautista

7. Troy Tulowitzki

8. Carlos Gomez

9. Michael Brantley

10. Anthony Rizzo

11. Nelson Cruz (even with the recent slide) as an outfielder

12. Jose Altuve

13. Brian Dozier!

14. Edwin Encarnaion (and how long as he missed?!)

15. Nelson Cruz even as a utility only roster spot

16. Josh Donaldson

17. Miguel Cabrera

18. Anthony Rendon

19. Todd Frazier

20. Victor Martinez

21. Brett Gardner (if you want to exclude the 2nd Cruz listing)

Without position scarcity incorporated, the Top 20 isn’t too different. Albert Pujols works his way up into the top 20 while Anthony Rendon works his way out. Jose Altuve and Brian Dozier as 2B still make it.

Below is the entire list ranked by their 5×5 (HR,R,RBI,SB,OPS) values. The 2nd column is Position Scarcity incorporated value/z-sum. The 1st column is without a position scarcity adjustment.

    Why is Carlos Santana listed as a 1B instead of a C? I assume most of us are playing him at C…I hope? Wondering how high he ranks in an OPS league even with his absurdly bad start.

      @Charles: yeah good question and I argued with myself whether I should go in and add that + miggy at 3b and there were a bunch if others. It’s a simple adjustment though after the fact. Look at another catchers regular vs adjusted value and add that difference. That will be his catching value.
