On this week’s Razzball Fantasy Baseball Podcast, Grey and B_Don continue the positional rankings for 2024 with 2B. Who will be the player we compare to everyone this week at the position? The guys differ on how they view the 2nd tier at the position, but agree on the names there in Jose Altuve, Matt […]

twenty years, Warbucks has plenty to go around and you should be plenty satiated for cashola, I mean, shortstops. I.e., there’s a lot of shortstops and you should be drafting them early and often. Okay, let’s get to it! Here’s Steamer’s 2024 Fantasy Baseball Projections for Hitters and 2024 Fantasy Baseball Projections for Pitchers. Subscriptions are up and running, and you can already get Rudy’s Draft War Room. Anyway, here’s the top 20 shortstops for 2024 fantasy baseball:

Welcome back to the third installment of the Fantasy Baseball Dynasty rankings. As we count down toward the top group, this week we cover players ranked 200-176.

Whether you are building your dynasty team from scratch this year or you are in year 10 with a team, there is always going to be a mix of young and old players. The players in this grouping are more on the older side and the catcher position is starting to come into play. Here is the breakdown of this week’s group:

1 player over 35 years old
9 players between the ages of 30-34
13 players between the ages of 25-29
2 players between the ages of 20-24
9 infielders
7 starting pitchers
5 outfielders
4 catchers

The older players in this group should be able to produce solid numbers for at least another three years, that is why I have them ranked this high. And the reason for the 10 players in their 30s makes sense to me since the deeper we go into the rankings, the more the dominant the young players are going to be.

And now my weekly reminder: if a top prospect hasn’t reached the majors yet, they won’t be in these rankings. Itch has been running down the top prospects per team and will continue his great work. No need for me to repeat what he says.

Now on to the Fantasy Baseball Dynasty Rankings: 175-151…

The journey through the 2024 Top Keepers continues this week with a look at the top shortstops. Compared to some of the other positions we’ve covered, shortstop is actually a pretty deep position. If you get stuck with a Tier 4 player, like a Jeremy Pena or Tommy Edman, you still have a decent shortstop on your hands.

Even in Tier 5 (players ranked 31-40), you still can get a decent utility player or fulltime shortstop with some solid upside. Meanwhile, the top shortstops are players who are not just the best at this position, but are some of the best players in the game. Overall, this is a strong group of players.

Now, on to the rankings!

After going over keeper relievers, keeper starters and keeper catchers in October, we turned our attention to the top infield keepers last week with a look at the keeper first basemen.

This week we continue the trip around the infield by looking at the second basemen.

I’m pretty sure I said this last year, but I will say it again: second base is the scrapheap of major league baseball. It seems every manager believes anyone can play second base – and they may be right. You have players getting starts at the spot that you would think would never play there – like a Brandon Drury. Right fielders, center fielders, third basemen, first basemen – they are all getting time at second base.

With so many fantasy leagues requiring middle infielders, the list of keepers is long and the bar to be on the list consists of players who had to have at least 10 starts at second base.

Enough with the chit chat, on to the 2024 Top Keepers – Second Basemen

And we’ve reached our final top 20 recap for the infield, and, if you exclude the top 20 catchers, because who cares, shortstops are the shallowest position. I know I said I was shocked when I went over them, but, guess what? Still shocked! Shortstops used to be a stacked position. Welp, this is the 3rd basemen, and they’re not much better, if we’re being  honest, which my shrinks says I have to be. 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 2023 fantasy baseball and how they compare to where I originally ranked them:

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 are shallower than 2nd basemen, which is surprising again. I say ‘again’ because it was the same last year. My guess is shortstops will get more robust next year, but they need to metaphorically eat. 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 2023 fantasy baseball and how they compare to where I originally ranked them:

Howdy, Razzball faithful! We’ve finally made it to the finish line! Here’s hoping that you’re still in the running for that league crown, or at least haven’t fallen victim to that dreaded cold spell in those Head-to-Head playoffs. If you’re out of the running in fantasy baseball, hopefully, you’re still excited for the real playoff […]
