On Dancer!  On Prancer!  On–Oh, I didn’t hear you come in.  Welcome, reader!  Grab some egg nog and brandy it up to the fire.  You look festive.  I love that Rudolph tongue ring.  That’s the great thing about Christmas, no matter what your interpretation is, it’s all about commercialism.  That’s unless you light the Munenori Kawasaki. The 2018 fantasy baseball rankings are not far away.  Right now, January Grey is throwing darts at a board to figure out where to rank Shohei Ohtani, the hitter vs. Shohei Ohtani, the pitcher.  Exciting!   In the meantime, let’s look at the players who have multiple position eligibility for this upcoming 2018 fantasy baseball season.  The biggest surprise from this list is one that we’ve discussed previously.  I’m going to try to stay in the holiday spirit, but Anthony Rizzo having 2nd base eligibility because they switched his glove out ten times is really effin’ stupid.  So, if Mike Trout plays the outfield with a catcher’s mitt, he’s a catcher?  Oh.  *runs a marathon in just under nine hours*  Kay.   Any hoo!  I did this list of multi-position eligible players because I figured it would help for your 2018 fantasy baseball drafts.  I’m a giver, snitches!  Happy Holidays!  I only listed players that have multiple position eligibility of five games or more started outside of their primary position.  Not four games at a position, not three, definitely not two.  Five games started.  If they played eight games somewhere but only started one, they are not listed.  5, the Road Runner of numbers.  So this should cover Yahoo, ESPN, CBS, et al (not the Israeli airline).  Yes, Christmas came three days early this year.  Players with multiple position eligibility are listed once alphabetically under their primary position.  This is the only time a year I do anything alphabetically, so I might’ve confused some letters.  Is G or H first?  Who knows, and, better yet, who cares!  Wow, someone’s got the Grinchies, must be the spiked egg nog talking.  A very special thank you to VinWins, who helped me put this list together.  Anyway, here’s all the players with multiple position eligibility for the 2018 fantasy baseball season and the positions they are eligible at:

10 team, Roto Dynasty, 6×6 (OBP + QS). Keep up to 17 forever.

I won this league last year with your help and here’s who I’m planning to keep for sure:
1. Goldschmidt
2. Trea Turner
3. Rendon
4. Springer
5. Dee Gordon
6. Carrasco
7. Darvish

Assuming you agree with those, pick 10 of the following
Khris Davis, TStory, Haniger, DeJong, JBJ, Ian Desmond, Polanco, McCullers, Salazar, Paxton, Urias, Duffy, Corbin, Snell, Morton, Shark, Doolittle

Appreciate the advice and happy holidays!

that super deep 30 team dynasty with now up to 40 man prospect slots and 6 draft rounds rather than 5 it’s been in all other seasons. 3 tags due in like 19 hours. start 2 MI, 2 CI, 3 OF, 1 C, 1 util, 3 SP, 3 RP, 3 P (so 6 RP and probably 6 SP is optimal). 7 BN, max 3 IR slots. roto 6×6 with holds/OPS added. budgets at 110 million now.
here’s what is already in place. .4 is min contract. all people in prospect slots are free unless called up then .4 mil. once they are called up and hit limits their contracts go for 4 years.

prospects:
C: okey, o’connor

OF: cozens, trammel, tocci, dj davis, whitley, d.alvarez, sierra, v.reyes, kirilloff, v.garcia
SP: diplan, kilome, b.martin, a.smith, yarbrough, v.alcantara, heredia (PIT)
RP: staumont, rj alvarez,

so i have 59.652,100 committed and 11 roster spots left before tags for an average of 4.57 million left per spot. clearly i tag sale for franchise (pay real life money) at 13 million.
what’s best 2 other options, i can either restrict 2/franchise 1 more or franchise 2/restrict 1.

1. options: segura (franchise price either 14 or 14.5), alonso (8 mil), morrow (10.5 or 11), minaya (.535). i’m thinking best idea is to franchise segura, restrict alonso and i’d have 9 slots left for 3.15 (assuming alonso gets bid up to around 8 mil, but it could be less than that)
2. since i have no closer and it’s generally hard to obtain them and they are overpriced (i got lucky in waivers on minaya late season, he wasn’t a prospect of mine) would i be better off restricting minaya over alonso or even segura?

3. i have a deal in place to deal segura for sixto sanchez, would this be a good idea, then obviously tag alonso and minaya?

i’m still catching up on posts now on page 5. and sneaky pete was good stuff.

@Grey: ok, don’t get cute, keep the better overall players. sounds right. doing justified now, never watched it when it was out, from sneaky pete avclub found out it’s based on elmore leonard. might be able to deal morrow for a late pick. also finding out it’s completely stupid (unless a TOP TOP prospect) to invest anything at all into catchers. i’ve had d’arnaud for years (previous owner must’ve wasted decent pick on him years ago) but was able to find leon and one of the ARI guys last year in FA for free, the 2 prospect catchers i have okey/o’connor will probably end up as nothing but FA waiver guys.

-came home from family thing with large ham chunk. can finally make hot ham water. actually DID just move morrow for a 5.4 pick. then noticed that he might close, which would suck for me as i’d probably get like 6th or 7th rather than 9-11th yearly if i had a closer. also should’ve asked for a 3rd IF my trade opp thought he’d close.

@goodfold2: oh crap, segura appears IF i franchise him i’d have to hold him for his real life 5 years at 14 per. while the 14 isn’t that terrible, holding ANYBODY for 5 guaranteed years sounds ridiculous. other than like m.trout or something. guessing unless i can trade him i should DEFINITELY restrict him rather than anchor myself to that.

@goodfold2: and good god it’s gross that i didn’t possibly waste some time and ask for more, betances (also needs to be tagged, his real life money is 3 mil this year as 1st year arb it’s last year’s money, next year would be more, but probably not much more than morrow’s 9 mil per year) just got flipped for 2 3rd rounders.

Hey Grey!

Will you be doing one of these for pitchers? I have a daily categories league in which strangely RPs who qualify as SPs are invaluable (K/BB is a category as is ERA, WHIP and Holds) and getting a list of all those player who have dual eligability would be huge. Love the site and ya’ll have helped me so much in my leagues. Much obliged!

Hey Grey,

Who do you think gains the most value from the multi-position eligibility?

I like :

Jose Ramirez 2B/3B/MI/CI
Alex Bregman 3B/SS/MI/CI
Ian Happ 2B/OF/MI
Scooter Gennett 2B/3B/OF/MI/CI

The roster construction capacity is wonderful there. I think all of those guys could be gotten in a single draft and give you a TON of flexibility for late draft fliers.

Not to be a critical dick about this, but I found it to leverage this list. You are listing the players at their primary position and indicating the additional position for which they gained eligibility. I guess this is great for borderline relevant guys that suddenly qualify at multiple slots, potentially increasing their value. I would have preferred to see the list broken down by position that was exclusively made up of who was net new. For example, A Rizzo would show up under 2B not 1B. That is the compelling story here, right? I want to look at a shallow position and see what new names have entered the pool. Just my 8 cents…

Hi Grey,

2b Eligibility for Rizzo will disappear en ESPN Fantasy 2018 because he has only 10 games in this position or not?

I think the rule for eligibility is 20 games the last season or 10 games current season.

Thanks in advance

@jesusc97: I think you’re right 10 games gets you current season in ESPN but players lose that for the next year unless you get to 20 games then it stay for the following year. I think looking at ESPN 2018 ranks confirms this. They don’t list Rizzo with 2B eligibility and they don’t list Freddie Freeman with 3B eligibility.

@jesusc97: I had looked into this rule for ESPN last week, with Rizzo in mind. Agree with Jesus and Crime dog. Came away understanding that he wouldn’t have 2B.

I think Rizzo with 2b eligibility is huge. Especially if he bounces back this year. Just traded for Thor at $20 gave up Cespedes at $15. I know he’s a risk but wasn’t keeping Cespedes anyway. If healthy do think Thor is a top ten pitcher? would like your thoughts. Where would you rate him this year. Thanks Grey and MERRY CHRISTMAS

@Speill: Thor is a Norse God. Literally… a God. He will be the best pitcher for a decade…if healthy.

Thank You, Grey.
I look forward to this chart and every post each day. I do quite well in my leagues both redrafts and dynasties with you and your teams input.
Someone asked not to long ago about an update for strategy for NFBC 50 player draft, like the one Razzball sponsored last year. Even though I finished 3rd and 4th in both leagues I played in, it would be a good read. Rudy did the last one I think in 2013. I know I got stuck on 33 saves for like 3 months and it cost me bad. Thanks for considering.
Merry Christmas, and I’m definitely looking forward to January Grey.
