We (me) have gone over the catchers sleepers, 1st basemen sleepers, 2nd basemen sleepers, shortstops sleepers, and 3rd basemen sleepers, because I have to do everything around here! Look at me, throwing shade like a beach umbrella! That makes sense…if you don’t think about it! That’s what I want my bumper sticker to say, “That makes sense….if you don’t think about it.” Okay, so this post is all the outfielders that are being drafted after 200 overall that elicit uber-sexy feelings. There’s guys like Wyatt Langford, Jackson Chourio, Riley Greene and Jordan Walker that I would draft everywhere

In our ultra-premium, ultra-secret Razzball Discord (which is only for writers and those people who podcast enough that they get called writers), Rudy wrote the following about his Draft Champions decision-making process: 

Now, aside from that killer avatar that Coolwhip made for Rudy, there are a few takeaways we can make from Rudy’s statement. 

Nolan Jones lacks desirable individual metrics: his career average K% hovers near 30%, a rate which is unsustainable for producing above-average fantasy hitters. 
Nolan Jones lacks track record: he has a notch over 500 MLB at bats, which worries Rudy. Clearly, 500 AB doesn’t worry the field about Corbin Carroll’s repeatability, but you do you. 
The Rockies suck. “That god awful offense” refers to the Rockies, not Nolan Jones, bee-tee-dubya. 

Per Fangraphs, the Colorado Rockies are projected to have the largest run differential in MLB in 2024, and an average overall runs scored per game rate. 

Who did Rudy choose instead? Adley Rutschman, the catcher for the Baltimore Orioles. Rutschman has twice the MLB sample size of Nolan Jones, a 10% lower K rate in that experience, and bats on a team that’s projected for a bit more runs than the Rockies. Good choice, Rudy!

Who were the real fantasy baseball risers and fallers from the 2024 MLB free agency this offseason, you ask? The real winners of the offseason, of course, were Shohei Ohtani, the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the devil since the Dodgers clearly made a deal with him to get Ohtani, Tyler Glasnow, Teoscar Hernandez, and Yoshinobu […]

Howdy, Razzpeeps! It’s Saturday, and you know what that means? It is time for Razzball Ambulance Chasers, your fantasy baseball injury analysis. Every Thursday or Friday, I email Matt Truss to help me make sure I don’t do things like spell “roles” as “rolls”. Except one time that really did happen and neither Truss nor […]

Giving you a big picture, generalization here: The top 80 outfielders are the end of the outfielders you’re looking at in your 12-team mixed leagues. The last tier in this top 80 outfielders goes to the next ranking post, so we’re at the beginning of the end of the hitter rankings in the 2024 fantasy baseball rankings. But as you know, a generalization makes a general out of I and Zation. Hmm, sounded better in my head.

Welcome back to Hitter Profiles for the 2024 fantasy baseball season. Last week we covered the AL Central and this week we head over to the NL East. This is a division bifurcated by postseason hopes. Beyond the goal of using bifurcation in a fantasy analysis (twice!), we have potential World Series contenders and playoff hopefuls between the Braves, Phillies and Marlins. Those three will provide plentiful fantasy options while the pickings get slim at the bottom of the division (sorry Mets and Nationals). As we prep for spring training it is time to dig deep for those sleepers while avoiding those early round temptations. So without further ado let’s walk through the boom and bust candidates in the NL East!

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…

Grey and B_Don return to the Razzball Fantasy Baseball Podcast to discuss the happenings from the MLB Winter Meetings. While Grey missed his opportunity to hangout with a Japanese baseball legend, the greatest Japanese baseball legend (maybe just baseball in general), Shohei Ohtani was holding the baseball world captive with his free agency decision when we recorded, so if we sound dumb…More dumb than usual, you know why.

Welcome back to another week of the 2024 Top Keepers series. We’ve completed our journey around the infield, so now we head to the outfield.

This week the spotlight is on left fielders. It would be simpler to just rank all the outfielders in one big group. However, I am not a fan of leagues that just start outfielders. While there is not a big difference between left field and right field, there is a difference. And playing center field is a very different skillset compared to the corner outfield spots.

With that in mind and knowing there are plenty of leagues that start a left fielder, center fielder and right fielder, I have broken up the positions into three different rankings. But before we get to the top left field keepers, below are the positions that have been discussed previously:
