And we’ve reached our final top 20 recap for the infield, and, if you exclude the top 20 catchers, 3rd base is by far the shallowest position. 3rd base ain’t great, y’all! This is the first position where there’s guys at the tail end that I actively wouldn’t have wanted on my fantasy teams, and guys like Yoan Moncada, Bobby Dalbec, Ke’Bryan Hayes, Adalberto Mondesi and Anthony Rendon all stunk, and didn’t even come within a sniff of the top 20 3rd basemen. Also, even the top 20 2nd basemen, which wasn’t great saw Wilmer Flores at 20, he’s 19th overall here, so this was a tad shallower. To recap my recap before the recap, this final ranking is from our Fantasy Baseball Player Rater with my comments. This is not for next year. Anyway, here’s the top 20 3rd basemen for 2022 fantasy baseball and how they compare to where I originally ranked them:Please, blog, may I have some more?

Now that we’ve recapped the top 20 catchers, top 20 1st basemen and top 20 2nd basemen, we’re starting to see clarity on depth of positions, and shortstops have bounced back in a major way since last year. Shortstops were not as deep as 2nd basemen last year. Shortstops are much deeper again. That’s not shocking, but good to see. So, here’s the final ranking from our Fantasy Baseball Player Rater with my comments. The Player Rater allows me to be impartial while looking at how I ranked them in the preseason. Anyway, here’s the top 20 shortstops for 2022 fantasy baseball and how they compare to where I originally ranked them:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Grey and B_Don are back to go over the (almost) end of season player rater rankings. We discuss how the top 4 on the Player Rater aren’t necessarily the typical power and speed combo guys we’ve seen in recent years. What does that mean for 2023, if anything? While we’re on the topic of the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The plan for today’s article is pretty complex in its simplicity. I set out to build a championship-level redraft team for 2023 using only rookies from 2022.

This infield is good. Might not win us the league, but getting steals all around the diamond puts us on a winning path. Not just because speed is increasingly rare but because these steals come from middle-order hitters with power.
Catcher is a pretty clear win. I suppose the Sal Perez team has a leg-up on you if they’ve got anyone in the C2 spot, but aside from that, we’ve got a top-of-the-scale catching duo.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is my last DFS article of the year, and for those of you who ever took my advice and wagered actual money, this day couldn’t have come sooner for you. However, I’ve had a blast. I figure that this is a process-driven thing we do, and YCPB (You Can’t Predict Baseball). Ultimately, it’s called […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Tis the season to watch the scoreboard. My own teams are fighting down the stretch, and I’m looking their way more often than necessary. I’m hoping to write a postseason piece on my processes and outcomes, but I don’t want to jinx anything by starting early.
For fantasy tweeters, it’s victory lap season. You might’ve seen a few threads already, typically in a shape like “What’d you get right and wrong this year?” Always worth our time to review the roads that brought us here, so I’ll be hopping back to March 30 to revisit my early season Brash Predictions 2022: Prospects Edition.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Over the last two weeks, I’ve given you my fantasy highs and lows at both tips of the hot corner. In each case, I shared some names to consider, and avoid, at the corner infield positions during the middle-to-later rounds of 2023 fantasy drafts. Now that we’ve looked forward, it’s time to look backward. We […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good day, As the 2022 regular season winds down, let’s review the shortstop pool. Booms: Dansby Swanson – Braves – We’ve likely seen Swanson’s career year as he approaches free agency. His 93/21/89/.279/.332/18 line has been a great value from where he was drafted this year. Many teams will likely line up for Swanson’s services […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
What’s up fam, I’m filling in for Mr. Pants this week, and what a weekend to do it… Albert Pujols became just the fourth person ever to hit 700 HR at the big league level. Truly a remarkable feat. What’s even more remarkable is that he nearly died on the vine outside of the walls […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Am I suggesting that you start Dustin May (FD $8,300/DK $8,200) today just so I could use the Happy Gilmore quote? It definitely went into consideration, and in one of my recent articles I recommended you Triston McKenzie, so I didn’t want to keep pushing him on you. Corey Kluber is always a Streamonator call, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Change is upon us, my friends. This past Friday, MLB announced various rule changes that would be implemented across the big leagues in 2023. We’ll see a pitch clock in MLB, the shift will be banned, and the bases will be enlarged (to name a few). These changes are mostly under the guise of speeding […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Happy Weekend, Razzball Nation! First and foremost, if anyone is a regular reader of the DFS notes, I’ll tell you that I haven’t gotten the calendar mixed up! I DO know that it’s Saturday and not Wednesday (the regular MarmosDad day for DFS goodness). Truss asked if I could cover for a player profile post […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
