Spring training is in full gear and fantasy drafts are rolling out. So that means it is time for the final installment of the 2024 Fantasy Baseball Dynasty Rankings. This week we feature the top 25 players.

Here is a look at the breakdown of this week’s grouping:

6 players between the ages of 30-34
14 players between the ages of 25-29
5 players between the ages of 20-24
12 infielders
10 outfielders
1 starting pitchers
1 starting pitcher/designated hitter
1 infielder/outfielder

There are, once again, 25 players who I broke down into my three age categories. Leading the way by a large margin is the group of players between the ages of 25 and 29. These are the players you expect to build your team around. There are still some great players who are in their 30’s, but do you want a player with maybe a three-year window of excellence or a player who a seven-year window, or greater? I don’t. I want the player who is approaching or at the start of their prime years to maximize their production I expect from them.

And as you will see, there is a reason why so many people consider the Atlanta Braves to be a dominant team for years to come. Of the 25 players listed in this group, six play for the Braves. The next closest team is the Dodgers with three players, with the Astros, Blue Jays, Phillies and Yankees coming in with two players apiece.

Anyway, for the final time this year, let’s get to the 2024 Fantasy Baseball Dynasty Rankings: Players 25-1…

Another week in the books means another installment of the Fantasy Baseball Dynasty rankings. This week we feature the players ranked 75-51 on our way to the top-ranked group.

Here is a look at the breakdown of this week’s grouping:

3 players between the ages of 30-34
17 players between the ages of 25-29
5 players between the ages of 20-24
11 infielders
8 starting pitchers
4 outfielders
2 catchers

If you have been reading this counting over the past few weeks, you will know that the ages of the players listed are getting younger and younger. The reason for this is obvious. If you are building a dynasty team, you want the best young players so you can win for a longer period of time. Seeing only three players in this group 30-years-old or older is not a shock at all.

As for the eight starting pitchers, six of them are in what I consider the sweet spot when it comes to their age: 25-29 years old. They have been in the majors for at least a few years and learned how to find success at this level. But the two pitchers not in that age range are 24 and 30, so it’s not like they are super young or too old. And as far as the catchers, some people shy away from them until the very end of the team building process as they simply don’t play every day. I used to do that.

But if you can get a great hitting catcher, especially in two-catcher leagues, then I say do it. It will give you an advantage at a position that struggles to have great offensive players.

Welcome back another installment of the Fantasy Baseball Dynasty rankings. This week we feature the players ranked 100-76 on our way to the top-ranked group.

Here is a look at the breakdown of this week’s grouping:

5 players between the ages of 30-34
14 players between the ages of 25-29
6 players between the ages of 20-24
9 infielders
7 starting pitchers
7 outfielders
2 catchers

If you are surprised by the number of players who are 29 or younger – a whopping 20 of the 25 players ranked in this group – you shouldn’t be. It stands to reason that the best way to build or maintain a winning dynasty team is do that is with the best young players in the game. The older players are great to fill a hole, but not build around.

More and more of the top hitters are starting to get ranked as well as I skew my rankings in favor of the young hitters, though I don’t ignore starting pitchers as much as I used to. But if picking between a pitcher and a hitter who are close in the rankings, I will go with the hitter this point.

Four score and seventeen-hundred rankings posts ago, my Fordfathers said, “Stop calling us Fordfathers, you idiot, it’s forefathers.” In order to form a more perfect fantasy baseball ranking system, we stopped ranking for fantasy baseball and simply said, “Eff it, let’s just let Grey rank 500 or so Mr. So-and-So’s.” Or, more succinctly, the top 500 for 2024 fantasy baseball.

Hello, all you brave, courageous, adventure-seekers, you’ve found the wrong website. This is fantasy baseball, not fantasy role playing, unless it’s fantasy roll-playing and this is Stratomatic, but that’s still not right. Still, fantasy baseball. Good, now that we got rid of all those people wearing fedoras and shopping from the Indiana Jones collection at Eddie Bauer, we can get down to the bidness. The Auction value bidness? Not quite, but you can find all auction values in Rudy’s rankings — one example, 12-team mixed league auction values. This is a top 100 for 2024 fantasy baseball. Let’s do this!

Welcome back to the fifth installment of the Fantasy Baseball Dynasty rankings. As we count down toward the top group, we first hit the players ranked 125-101.

Here is a look at the breakdown of this week’s grouping:

7 players between the ages of 30-34
13 players between the ages of 25-29
5 players between the ages of 20-24
11 starting pitchers
7 outfielders
4 infielders
1 outfielder/infielder
1 catcher

The breakdown for the players when it comes to their age should not be surprising at all. As we get closer to the top-ranked players, the older players are players are fading away and being replaced by players who will be the building blocks of your team. These are the players you will have for five years or more – not those who fill a void in your team.

The number of pitchers in this grouping make sense as I build my teams around offense and go after the top hitters before going for the top pitchers. You can’t ignore them, but there always seems to be pitchers who come out of nowhere and become studs compared to hitters. Usually, if you can hit, you hit in the minors and carry it over to the majors. But for many pitchers, the early struggles you see in the minors or early stages of their MLB career isn’t always a good indicator of what their career will become.
