Aaaaand we’re back! And just in case you were concerned the Dodgers weren’t loaded with enough weapons to make Jack Reacher blush, an Ace break out could be upon us as second year starting pitcher Bobby Miller put on an absolutely filthy display Friday night, dominating the St. Louis Cardinals to the tune of six […]

Intro Happy Opening Day to everyone except Ippei! This is my favorite time of the year. Spring is sprung, everyone is huffing hopium (EWB’s word), and we all get to talk about the excitement of baseball. It’s a magical time. And this, my final draft of each season with my fellow writers/analysts here at Razzball, […]

What is up party people? We are back in the thick of spring training and draft season. That means rankings are the talk of the town and I am here to guide you. ADP is a guide but it’s also a trap, go get your guy. Fantasy is always way more fun when you have the players that you like to watch. So let’s have some fun and win some leagues.

 

1)  Ronald Acuna Jr – I’d be lying if I said there wasn’t a moment of panic when I heard the news he was going in for some tests on his knee, but thankfully it’s just mild irritation. He’s the best player on the board and, frankly, it’s not even close. I’m taking him first overall 11 outta 10 times.

As the 2024 fantasy baseball pre-season gains momentum, the excitement is tangible. Last week, we unveiled the top 20 hitters, with Ronald Acuna’s brilliance shining through despite brief injury concerns. Spring training has been nothing short of tantalizing, introducing us to emerging talents such as Wyatt Langford, Spencer Jones, Colton Cowser, and Henry Davis. With drafts commencing, it’s time to shift our focus to the next echelon of hitters, spanning spots 20 to 40. This bracket welcomes a group of burgeoning youth and old veterans, presenting a blend of potential and seasoned reliability. Without further ado, let’s dive in to the next edition of unveiling the Top 100 hitters for the 2024 fantasy baseball season.

[licks finger, puts it in the air] It’s best ball weather, folx. That wind from the north bringing the chill warns not of failure, but of luck and opportunity. There’s fun to be had. For some players, there’s a bunch of money on the line too. Right about now, you’re probably fending off ads from DraftKings, Underdog, NFBC, Fantrax, and a legion of other providers that are advertising best ball leagues. Sign up bonuses! Overlay! Just 2 more needed to fill this league that drafts at 1AM! 

Oh, and RazzSlam starts on March 4 (that’s today!). We’re still working on making it a national holiday, but so far only Kiribati recognizes the sanctity of this holy day. 

Personally, best ball is my favorite fantasy format. As a middle-aged corporate worker who has duties to family, animals, civic society, and video games, I have little time to log in and meticulously manage baseball rosters. That’s where best ball comes into play: I draft a team, and then the provider tallies only the top scores from eligible players and discards the rest. I don’t need to worry about 12PM vs 6PM starts, or late scratches, or day-to-day injuries, or, or, or. If you like worrying about that stuff, then great. Me? I’ve got 3 hours in the time where work ends and kids bedtimes begin to do a bunch of stuff, and looking at my fantasy roster usually doesn’t make the cut.

Another week in the books means another installment of the Fantasy Baseball Dynasty rankings. This week we feature the players ranked 50-26 on our way to the top-ranked group.

Here is a look at the breakdown of this week’s grouping:

8 players between the ages of 30-34
9 players between the ages of 25-29
8 players between the ages of 20-24
11 infielders
6 starting pitchers
5 outfielders
2 infielders/outfielders
1 catcher

If you have been following this series, then you know I have favored younger players with upside over a more established player who may be slightly better right now but likely won’t be in two or three years. That is because I am building a dynasty team – one that will compete now and into the future.

However, there comes a point where I want the best players right now and then weigh how long they will be at their best. In a standard 12-team league, the group of players in today’s rankings are slotted in the third and fourth rounds of drafts (auction leagues are a completely different beast). However, if two players are close in talent, I will still take the younger one with more upside.

In this group of players there are eight who are 30-years-old or greater and then nine more between the ages of 25-29. I’m not going to build my team around 33-year-old players such as Jose Altuve or Marcus Semien, but I sure do want them on my team in order to win now. I will load up on younger players later in a draft who will take the place of older players I take earlier.

Now on to the Fantasy Baseball Dynasty Rankings: 50-26…

Grey and B_Don are back to finish up the infield for the 2024 positional rankings with 3B on this week’s episode of the Razzball Fantasy Baseball Podcast. We discuss the depth of the position. At the top, what separates Austin Riley and Rafael Devers?  The rest of the guys you’re drafting for 3B are a […]

Hello, all you brave, courageous, adventure-seekers, you’ve found the wrong website. This is fantasy baseball, not fantasy role playing, unless it’s fantasy roll-playing and this is Stratomatic, but that’s still not right. Still, fantasy baseball. Good, now that we got rid of all those people wearing fedoras and shopping from the Indiana Jones collection at Eddie Bauer, we can get down to the bidness. The Auction value bidness? Not quite, but you can find all auction values in Rudy’s rankings — one example, 12-team mixed league auction values. This is a top 100 for 2024 fantasy baseball. Let’s do this!
