Welcome back to week three of unveiling the top 100 Hitters for the 2023 fantasy baseball season. Over the past few weeks, we have walked through the top 25 (check it here) and then rounded out the top 50 (another link) bringing us to this week. We are now entering the back half of the top 100 hitters for 2023. This portion is where the rankings start to bunch up and hitter #51 is much closer to hitter #75 than #1 is to #2. Maybe that is stating the obvious but it is key for how we handle this portion of the draft. With this group of hitters, we start to think about need, team makeup, and shortfalls in our categories to ensure we have a well balanced team rather than trying to win a single roto category by lapping the field. We all know the guy that drafts only steals or seven closers, so do not be that person! With the formalities out of the way, let us get on with the rankings.Please, blog, may I have some more?

Last week, we walked through my initial top 25 as we began to count down, or rather count up our top 100 hitters for the 2023 fantasy baseball season. While the top 25 was a star studded group on which fantasy dreams are born, the next 25 contain breakout potential and a number of reliable veterans. Once we get past this group, the questions start to grow and the debate will certainly spark. Without further ado, let us jump into our continuing view of the top 100 hitters for the 2023 fantasy baseball season with spots 26 through 50!Please, blog, may I have some more?
This week our top 100 hitters get a shakeup not only from shifting roles and recent performance, but unfortunately, we see a few players tumbling down by their own accord. Whether it was a bad haircut leading to a PED suspension or another off the field run in with the law, it is not the way we want to see a player dropping out of the rankings. That said, Fernando Tatis Jr. and Marcell Ozuna do not seem to care about your fantasy team any more than their own team at this point, so our rankings had to return the favor. Disappointing as it may be for teams relying on their fading stars at the end on the season, it is out with the old and in with the new in this week’s rendition of the top 100 hitters for the rest of the 2022 fantasy baseball season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This must be one of the most exciting trade deadlines in history. We had established closers switching teams, gold gloves moving to greener pastures and some young 23 year old demanding one of the biggest prospect hauls we have ever seen. The trade deadline is always an interesting lottery for our fantasy game. For forward looking owners, there is an opportunity to prospect into new values or simply get some dumb luck. Either way, the deadline is certainly a delight for viewers and owners alike. This week our Top 100 Hitters takes a shuffle thanks to the deadline and beginning of the seconds half as we stare down the last two weeks of the 2022 fantasy baseball season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Here we are running into the second half coming off an incredibly exciting All-Star break. I think I could personally listen to Alek Manoah pitch mic’d up for the next five years and not get bored. As we look at the what may be a last gasp for owners trying to make the playoffs or ride it out in the roto standings, we owe ourselves a reset and the opportunity to move some big names up or down in the rankings. While the Home Run derby was fun, it does not really change our outlook for Julio Rodriguez or Juan Soto. However, the second half will bring us the return of a few key contributors and give others a chance for a much needed reset. Without further ado and random rambling, jump into the rankings and read through below to see the movers and shakers as we jump in with two feet to our Top 100 rankings for the rest of the 2022 fantasy baseball season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome to July where we are only two weeks away from the All-Star game and fantasy baseball owners are trying to gear up for the second half. This week, our rest of the season rankings take on a little shake up thanks to injury (sorry, Bryce Harper and Salvador Perez) and the continued breakout of young stars like Julio Rodriguez and Bobby Witt Jr. In the coming weeks, we also hope to welcome back a healthy Eloy Jimenez, Fernando Tatis Jr. and maybe even Mitch Haniger. Because we know you have already skipped this short introduction, let us move on to the rankings for the rest of the 2022 fantasy baseball season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The calendar has turned into June, and we are about one third of the way through the 2022 fantasy baseball season. At this point, we know where we need to cut bait and hopefully have found some waiver fodder that will carry us over the warmer months. As the analogy goes, summer can be as hot as a volcano. In our world, the heat of the volcano (yes this is a weird analogy) is a combination of Mookie Betts and Paul Goldschmidt. Owning just one of these two could move you up the standings, while the combination drove in 60 runs with 20 dingers and nearly a .400 average over the past month. That my fair reader is being as hot as a volcano. Now that we have drained a pointless analogy, we jump into this week’s edition of the Top 100 hitters for the rest of the 2022 fantasy baseball season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
As we approach June, the Mets have the best record in the National League. Like many fans, fantasy owners might be asking what is happening and how did we get here? Luckily like the real world we can expect the Mets to falter. If you are not yet at the top of the standings in your fantasy league, you have to expect the same from your league mates. It is still early and not the time to throw in the towel, but rather it is time to dig deep to find those hidden gems. Be bold and make some moves to prepare yourself for the summer stretch run. This week we will dive in to the top 100 hitters for the rest of the 2022 fantasy baseball season and call out some of the big bats that are on the move!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Like the Mets coming back to steal a ninth inning win, we are doing the improbable and shuffling it up with the Top 100 hitters for the rest of the fantasy baseball season. Maybe the Mets’ comeback is more impressive than this shuffle, but I still cannot imagine the Mets being must watch baseball! With that out of the way, we have some big moves this week with injuries to key players (see Eloy Jimenez) and returns for others (see Ramon Laureano). We also now have a month of insight to tell us who is real and who might simply be a mirage. In the spirit of Bill ‘Spaceman’ Lee, dig in to the rankings like a cosmic snowball means no tomorrow. Bonus points for those few that follow the reference!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Just two weeks or so into the regular season and it is time to start jostling those rankings. We have some big moves in the early going with some big names. While it certainly is early and not the time to overreact to small sample sizes, there are a few guys that are moving up due to delivering on early promise such as Seiya Suzuki. However, the biggest surprise in our rankings this week might be a year-over-year first rounder that seems to be trending in the wrong direction. Will fortune favor the bold or will you and I regret moving on from Mookie Betts. In this week’s article we run down the Top 100 Hitters for the rest of the 2022 fantasy baseball season and see who is moving up, who is moving down and where we need to keep a watchful eye over the coming weeks.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It is that time! Opening day has passed and that means it is time for our first Top 100 Hitter rankings for the rest of the 2022 season. Every other week we will be looking at the movers and shakers for rest of the season value. This will be the place to be every Saturday throughout the season to get your rankings fix. For this first version, we will discuss where some of the young upstart rookies fit such as Bobby Witt Jr. We will also look at a few Spring Training performances and where guys like Cody Bellinger and Francisco Lindor land after springs heading in opposite directions. As always, thanks for reading and good luck to you this season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome back to the third week in our series to introduce the Top 100 Hitters for the 2022 fantasy baseball season. We have covered the top 10 here and the next 20 here over the past few weeks. This week we jump in with two feet to explore spots 31 through 60. At this point, we are starting to explore the fourth and fifth rounds of the draft and hoping to round out our early round moves. There are certainly some upside picks in this section (Brandon Lowe or Wander Franco) to go alongside steady veterans (J.D. Martinez and Nolan Arenado) and the introduction of true high risk/high reward profiles (Adalberto Mondesi and Giancarlo Stanton). Read on for the next 30 spots in our countdown.Please, blog, may I have some more?
