2015 Fantasy Baseball Rankings




  1. mike says:

    I was wondering if you gave out auction values for 15 man leagues? nfbc style leagues. Thanks Mike

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      We will…

  2. Eric says:

    Had a trade offer in my dynasty league… this league is almost more important then air….

    values included
    I give…
    cargo 34
    Cole 12
    Alexi Ram 3
    Cespesdes 14
    MCcann 9

    I get…
    Abrue 2
    Tanaka 8
    Cobb 7
    Lucroy 5
    Blackman 1

    abrue cobb lucroy are all solid solid gets, tanaka is looking like 15′ could be a wash and i’m concerned blackman will regress


    • jal179 says:


      Cargo pricey, never healthy. 47 Cole’s appear every year= replaceable. ARam has already been impounded by the regression police. Cespedes is steady but I just don’t like McCann.

      I’d do it

    • SheriffMcRawDawg says:

      @Eric: for those values I might do that even w/o Tanaka

      • CMUTIMMAH says:

        @SheriffMcRawDawg: Unless that Abreu is Bobby, I’m not sure why you’re even asking the question…

        You lower pay roll and end up with the better end of things, IMO.

    • Whatever says:

      @Eric: seriously, you have to think about this one? pull the trigger before the owner gets cold feet!!!

  3. dan says:

    in a 6-cat league with OPS, who would you rather have for next year – Demond Jennings or Brett Lawrie?

  4. scott says:

    looking 4 a site with auction values that fluctuate up and down throughout the year based on performance.

  5. Timothy Roderick says:

    16 team auction roto keeper, 6×6 w/ ops. Would you rather $1 Mesoraco or $6 Marte?

  6. mark says:

    In a standard 5X5 Roto league with OBP instead of BA, I have a choice between keeping Kole Calhoun or Carlos Carrasco (dual SP / RP). Your thoughts?

    Below are my other keepers:
    Hanley Ramirez
    Robinson Cano
    Paul Goldschmidt
    Freddie Freeman
    Bryce Harper
    Yoenis Cespedes
    Clayton Kershaw
    Adam Wainwright

  8. Hi G!

    I was wondering if you have a schedule for these rankings?

    You da best!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      One a day for the next month

  9. Shyam says:

    The top 10 for 2015 link seems to be broken.

  10. Standard head to head 10 man league. 3 keepers out of Ian desmond, Rendon, Donaldson, Springer, Dickerson.

    • eric says:

      Desmond, Rendon, Donaldson – no question

  11. Chachi says:

    Kluber, DeGrom or Ventura?
    15 team dynasty league.

  12. Stephen says:

    If you could choose any minor leaguer in a prospect draft (anyone who qualifies for Rookie of the Year including players like Rusney Castillo are eligible) who would it be?

    Assume you get to keep this player for at least 3 years for the date they play at least 30 days in the majors in a dynasty format. Who do you think has the highest ceiling for this year? And in perpetuity if taking more of a long run horizon?

  13. John says:

    Do you know when your auction values come out?

  14. Kent says:

    Is it possible to export the rankings to excel?

    • Kent says:

      @Kent: Found the War Room. So when does the War Room get updated for 2015?

  15. dan says:

    i had a trade offer : i give cano & donaldson..i get : fielder, hanley, c.dickerson. i can keep 6. my others are : s.castro, frazier, cespedes, ellsbury. if i deal i have to drop someone. deal or no deal? who to drop if i deal? are fielder and hanley being health risks worth it?

  16. Jordan says:

    Is there any way I can use your table to create values for my custom league? 21 roster spots, 8 teams. $260 budget.

  17. Fever Dog says:

    Anyone doing a spreadsheet with the rankings?

  18. Senior says:

    When is JB Gilpin going to do his top 100 pitcher rankings?

  19. Steve says:

    Pedroia or Kipnis? OBP instead of BA.

  20. Dimitri says:

    roto keeper league – Being offered Springer and Wacha or Billy Hamilton and Wacha for Desmond. Would you do this trade and which one? I also have Hanley and Alexei

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I’d take Springer, Wacha

  21. tone DEAF! says:

    Good evening. Has anyone created an Excel file for your top 400 yet?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Can download the War Room

      • tone DEAF! says:

        @Grey: thanks!

  22. eric says:

    Xander or Dickerson as a keeper? I have full A’s my first keeper. Also 1st pick in draft miggy or mccutcheon? Please help

  23. eric says:

    Xander or Dickerson as a keeper? I have full till tulo as my first keeper. Also 1st pick in draft miggy or mccutcheon? Please help

    • Grey

      Grey says:


  24. Kevin says:

    Always enjoyed reading your site. Thank you so much for putting together a tiered cheat sheet this year. You saved me a ton of time.

  25. jc3bagger says:

    Is there a way to export your top 400? Or any tips on how I can get this in to an Excel spreadsheet?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Copy and paste

      • jc3bagger says:

        @Grey: That’s an interesting thought, I hadn’t thought of that yet…

        In all seriousness, it comes out as one long string of text.

        • Grey

          Grey says:

          That’s how others have said, they’ve done it… Come to my newest post and ask people in comments, I don’t have to do it with my own rankings

  26. Stevie Y says:

    10 team auction keeper league:
    keep Jorge Soler for up to 4 years for the minimum
    keep Kyle Seager for 1 year for a relatively low price?
    wish Soler had at least half a year in the bigs

  27. Adam says:


    Can you give a rank of middle reliver’s. 5×5 roto

  28. ByeFelicia says:

    What would you bid in a 12 team auction post draft on Yellich & Mesoraco? $200 (DBL THE NORM) FA budget. Dbl the players auction value say $28 for Yellich and $15 for Meso? I really need a 5th OF and Catcher. Replacing Chirnos & Baez/Avisail (haven’t decided which one yet) Thx Homie

    • ByeFelicia says:

      @ByeFelicia: this is my 1st time playing auction league so i haven’t a clue what im doing ha

  29. lid says:

    does an innings pitched limit of 1300 for a season (in a 9 team classic roto league) make starting pitchers more valuable on draft day? I understand the concept of drafting hitting first but…an elite starter will count for about 220 of the 1300 innings while an elite hitter will only account for 162 of the 1620 total player games allowed. Thoughts?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      A tad more valuable, yeah…

  30. PeteRosesRevnege says:

    Hi Grey had our draft Yesterday, i picked 4th the wife picked 7th, we followed the Razzball methodology pretty much. As expected Most of the other teams went pitching first. I think my team is pretty good but not as good as last year. My team is Pomponies Pigs, my wifes is the Diamond dogs. What do you think?

    it is a 10 team head to head league points are at the end of the post.

  31. Larry says:

    what tools do you have for a 5×5 roto OBP draft? Most of this seems to be for average.

  32. Jcoakley says:

    In 12 team, non-keeper league that values hitting (10 categories) vs pitching (9categories).
    Picking third I am finding guys like Ramirez and Posey (high value at SS and C) but also Beltre, Braun, and Ellsbury types at #22 and #27 (Donaldson, Tulo, Rendon usually gone). Advice??

    Assuming you don’t go for Strasburgh or other SP based on earlier writings.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Depends who you have with first two… Obviously I like Donaldson the best per my rankings

      • Jcoakley says:

        @Grey: I will have McCutchen or Stanton with my first pick and have gotten Brantley more often than not in mocks with my second. Just not sure if I am reaching on either Ramirez or Posey here due to their positions versus Beltre or Braun.

  33. Graham says:

    Any chance you guys are going to be updating the software used for the on-site War Room? I’ve tried accessing it on a Mac and PC, and using IE, Chrome and Firefox. It just doesn’t work, and when it does, it doesn’t last for long. It’s such a great idea, but seems totally unusable for some reason.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      No plan to update for this year, sorry

  34. Syn says:

    What’s everyone think? Think I will struggle with avg/obp and some pitching categories.

    C – Ramos (21)
    1B – Rizzo (2)
    2B – Kipnis (9)
    3B – Arenado (4)
    SS – Bogaerts (12)
    OF – Adam Jones (1)
    OF – Justin Upton (3)
    OF – Ellsbury (5)
    UTIL – Cespedes (6)
    P – Samarzdja (8)
    P – Ross (10)
    P – Iwakuma (11)
    RP – KRod (14)
    RP – Peralta
    B – Latos (13)
    B – Longoria (7)
    B – Hutchison (15)
    B – Hughes (16)
    B – Eovaldi (17)
    B – Wong (18)
    B – Pollock (19)
