In an incredible turn of events, I’ve done all the infield 2018 fantasy baseball rankings.  Less incredible, you’ve read them.  It’s like that time your favorite team won because they played better than that other team but you convinced yourself they won because you cheered loudly.  When I win the Fantasy Baseball Blogger of the Millennial in 2099, and my frozen head is accepting the award, I’m going to thank you, the readers, but I’m secretly going to be thanking myself.  Without me, none of this would be possible.  You’re a close second though!  Okay, enough ranking you and me, let’s rank some outfielders!  Last year, there was one outfielder I said I didn’t want in the top 20, Carlos Gonzalez.  This year, well, let’s save it for the post!  All my projections are listed by the players and where I see tiers starting and stopping.  Anyway, here’s the top 20 outfielders for 2018 fantasy baseball:

1. Mike Trout – Went over him in the top 10 for 2018 fantasy baseball.

2. Bryce Harper – Went over him in the top 10 for 2018 fantasy baseball.

3. Mookie Betts – Went over him in the top 10 for 2018 fantasy baseball.

4. Giancarlo Stanton – Went over him in the top 10 for 2018 fantasy baseball.

5. Kris Bryant – Went over him in the top 10 for 2018 fantasy baseball.

6. J.D. Martinez – Went over him in the top 20 for 2018 fantasy baseball.

7. George Springer – Went over him in the top 20 for 2018 fantasy baseball.

8. Cody Bellinger – Went over him in the top 20 for 2018 fantasy baseball.

9. Charlie Blackmon – Went over him in the top 20 for 2018 fantasy baseball.

10. Aaron Judge – This is a new tier.  This tier goes from here until here.  I call this tier, “Went over him in the top 20 for 2018 fantasy baseball (almost).”  Every position has a few guys that I almost ranked in the top 20 overall, but the outfielders only have one guy.  Don’t get me wrong, I like a ton of outfielders later on, but Judge is the only one of the next 120+ names that I almost ranked in the top 20.  From what I see of early ADP, I’m not alone.  This is the cut-off for the top outfielders.  Aside from Buxton totally breaking out or Marte returning to form, I don’t even see a possible argument for the next ten names being a top 20 overall player.  I mean, Sunday Santana just had what is likely a career year and he ranked 43rd for fantasy value on our Player Rater.  As for Judge, I’m debating writing a schmohawk post for him.  I know, blasphemy.  You know what everyone expected from him last year at this time?  A 35-homer, .220 season.  That sounds ludicrous now, right?  Well, it shouldn’t, after he hit 22 homers and .228 in the 2nd half last year.  This is you, “Buh-buh-buh-buh-BUH-BUH-BBBBBBBBUUUUUT!!!  He was injured, Aaron Judge is the truth.”  In the 1st half last year, he had a .426 BABIP.  I know, he hits everything hard, but c’mon.  He’s not a .400+ BABIP guy.  No one is.  In the 2nd half, his BABIP dropped to .266 and shizz went pear-shaped.  I’m conflicted, because I do like Judge, but I think the dreaded sophomore slump is coming, and I don’t see myself owning Judge.  2018 Projections:  104/40/94/.244/7 in 511 ABs

11. Marcell Ozuna – This is a new tier.  This tier goes from here until Upton.  I call this tier, “Happy December 26th Eve.”  The tier name is what Jews call Christmas.  You still get a day off, and, if you weren’t so neurotic and encompassed with schadenfreude, you’d enjoy that most of the world is having a good time, but it’s still not as great as getting swamped in presents.  This tier is fine, it’s a day off, but you’re not celebrating anything after you draft one of these guys, i.e., who was your first outfielder?  You have one already, right?  You don’t?  Well, you should.  As for Ozuna, I already went over him when he was traded, here’s what I said, “Marcell Ozuna was traded to the Cards, because the Marlins only had him under control until the end of 2019, and the Marlins are playing for 2022.  Then, in 2023, the Marlins will be playing for 2042.  Seriously, what the eff are the Marlins doing?  I understand trying to get younger, but they’re trading guys who are young.  It’s not like they’re moving Martin Prado.  Maybe having a guy who discarded women when they reached the age of 22 isn’t the best idea to run a club.  Jeter continues to view 27-year-olds as ancient.  Hey, Jeter, you’re not unloading Minka Kelly here, you’re unloading Jessica Biel.  With the extra Wild Card, I’ll never understand slashing an entire team.  Before the selling spree, the Marlins were literally two players away from a Wild Card berth.  Now, they’re five years away.  Madness, man, madness.  Any hoo!  Marcell Ozuna averaged 413 feet on his home runs last year, because OZUNA strong.  If you overlay his home runs last year with his new park, he keeps his 37 homers and gains an extra one.  It’s more or less a push in the Busch.  OZUNA love Busch, it is OZUNA favorite type of hedge, much better hedge than poison ivy.”  And that’s me quoting me!  2018 Projections:  101/35/106/.278/1 in 607 ABs

12. Starling Marte – After he returned from his suspension, he picked up right where he left off, like he was frozen in time.  Maybe he was just holding still like a flat LaCroix, or like an end of a Police Squad episode.  Either way, like we’ve seen with Dee Gordon, and a bunch of other players who I’m blanking on, a PEDs suspension doesn’t really stop a player from being essentially the same player on return.  Which might have you asking, why do the PEDS at all if they’re the same after returning?  Well, I have another question for you, what if they’re still doing PEDs, but they just get smarter about avoiding detection?  Like CC would say, things that make you go hmm… 2018 Projections:  88/15/61/.272/32 in 551 ABs

13. Andrew Benintendi – Reminds me a bit of Alex Bregman, and they’re currently going in the same round in drafts, sometimes back-to-back like Jennifer Connelly in Requiem for a Dream.  Benintendi stole twenty bags last year, and like Bregman, I could see him stealing anywhere from three bags to 25 bags.  Also like Bregman, I could see Benintendi hitting a few more homers this year after he hit twenty.  Let’s just call Alex Bregman and Benintendi, Anex Beninman.  Can’t find a Beninman!  2018 Projections:  90/22/81/.282/14 in 566 ABs

14. Justin Upton – Steamer projections for Upton are 79/29/87/.247/11 in 538 ABs.  Okay, I think that’s conservative, but I tell you those numbers so you get an idea of how uninspiring he could be if things don’t break right.  He was productive for five of six months last year, and the 2nd half the year before, so he’s had a solid eight of his last nine months.  With this ranking, I’m expecting four of this year’s six months to be solid, then eight months turns to twelve, it’s quarter past three and we drive at ten and two.  So Upton’s gotta be good, right?    2018 Projections: 93/31/108/.252/10 in 561 ABs

15. Rhys Hoskins – This is a new tier.  This tier goes from here until the top 40 outfielders for 2018 fantasy baseball.  I call this tier, “Hopsin.”  By the tier name I mean, I started listening to Hopsin’s latest album.  At first, I was like, “Cool, you beat your girlfriend and abandoned your kid in Australia.”  Then after a 2nd listen I was like, “Okay, I get it, your “ho” was looking for dollars.  But, c’mon, man, that’s not very woke.”  By my fifth listen, I was like, “Yo, let this guy see his kid!  Ugh, I’m so tired of all the problems you’ve been causin’ me (ha—ha—ha)…We are not cool no mo’ as far as I can see… I’ve fallen!  I’m crawlin’!”  So, each one of these guys grew on me the further I dug into them.  As for Hoskins, went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2018 fantasy baseball.

16. Byron Buxton – He had a 16/29/.253 season last year.  If he hit leadoff, and accumulated 100 runs, or hit third and racked up 100 RBIs, we’d prolly not even be able to draft him this late.  Then again, he was unusable for an entire half for the 2nd year in a row.  Then again again, he still had a great season!  I think it might be a bit bizzonkers that I have Buxton ranked this high, but the more I looked at him and what he could do, I was all-in like Stu Ungar at the final table in the World Series of Poker in heaven.  He’s about a 14% HR/FB with a 40% FB rate, not many oppo dong-balls but still good for around 19.9 HRs.  What’s that, 19 homers and a 576 foot out made by Aaron Judge diving into the stands, running 25 feet and reaching up his 18 foot arm?  Meh, let’s give him 20 homers.  Next, his steals.  Have you seen homeboy run?  Doode’s fast like a jaguar spotting a provocatively dressed sheep.  Next, his average.  Usually, average doesn’t mean squat, but here is my big concern for Buxton.  Luckily, there’s some optimism.  He hit .300 in the 2nd half last year with a 27.6% strikeout rate.  That cut his Ks by three percentage points from the 1st half.  He was luckier than a leprechaun who’s sprouting four-leaf clovers out of his ears with a .378 BABIP.  Gonna sound hemmy-and-hawy but if Buxton can start hot, have confidence early, he could hit .275 on the year.  More than likely, he’s gonna hit some droughts that would make Hollis Mulwray blush, and hit around .245.  With the power and speed though?  I’m in.  2018 Projections:  76/20/84/.242/33 in 502 ABs

17. Chris Taylor – Went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen for 2018 fantasy baseball.

18. Yasiel Puig – I fell in love with Pweeg this past postseason.  By the way, I got comments that I’m a Dodgers’ homer when I published my Shohei Ohtani fantasy.  Okay, but I don’t like Justin Gingerlake, Kershaw, and I hate Seager, so wrong.  I’m not a Dodgers homer.  I’m a straight-up fantasy baseball head.  I don’t have a favorite team.  I just think it’s super stupid — supid? — that the Orange County Angels call themselves Los Angeles.  I’m an LA snob, not a Dodgers one.  Any hoo!  I fell in love with Pweeg, because of how much old, stodgy white guys hated him for licking his bat and just acting a fool.  We need more players acting a fool in baseball.  What gets shared during football season?  End zone dances.  What is a prevailing baseball attitude with home runs?  Place your bat down and respectfully round the bases.  Eff that.  Show personality!  Throw your bat in the air and do the Cha Cha Slide like Joey Fatone on Dancing With The Stars!  Baseball is okay with 156 MPH foul balls killing fans, but not okay with home run celebrations?  Oh.  *drives cross country*  Kay.  That’s why I like Pweeg.  Any hoo, Part II:  Welcome to Anyhoo-ville, Puig went 28/15/.263 last year, and moved his walk rate and K-rate the right way.  I think we’re about to get that full-on breakout; now let’s see some Pweeg’s fly.  2018 Projections:  80/31/94/.284/13 in 519 ABs

19. Khris Davis – Am I scared the bottom is gonna drop out at any moment for him?  Like I’m in an elevator with a frayed cable?  By the way, what do you call a scared wire?  A frayed cable.  Take it, Highlights!  It’s yours!  My hope, right before world peace on my list of hopes, is we get one more 40+ HR, .250 season from Davis.  If he does that, what’s the difference between him and Aaron Judge?  Four rounds and a striking similarity to Giancarlo.  2018 Projections:  86/41/106/.245/3 in 551 ABs

20. Christian Yelich – Remember that episode of the Twilight Zone with Burgess Meredith when he finally gets peace and quiet to read, because he’s the only person left in the world, but then in a horrible twist, Burgess Meredith breaks his glasses?  Well, if Yelich breaks his glasses, he’s screwed because the whole team left him.  For a slightly less dated reference, but still dated, Yelich has one friend left, a volleyball named Wilson.  UPDATE:  Yelich was traded to the Brewers and now Starlin Castro is Burgess Meredith in the above example.  Jeter is still Wilson.  Yelich goes to a much better park, lineup, city as long as he doesn’t hang out with Steven Avery’s family, and a sausage racers’ mecca.  Only drawback is he can no longer dry hump his luggage tag and say, “Oh, Mia, you like that.”  That was kinda weird anyway.  I’ve upped his projections and ranking with this trade.  2018 Projections: 105/19/67/.291/17 in 581 ABs

    Hey Grey – pleased to see you still bullish on Cruz. I’ve had a reasonable amount of success zagging against the ageist crowd these past few years and enjoying his power, and I’m hoping he’ll continue for at least one more year.

    Been enjoying the ranks so far, and am in the middle of an early slow-draft (NFBC-style 50 round draft and hold roto league – CI/MI and 5 OF + UT) so would be interested to see a) how you think my roster is shaking out, and b) where I should be targeting my reserve picks – am I low on some stats in particular, or should I just add SP depth for streaming/target some stalking horses for closer opportunities/aim for some high upside guys still in the minors, etc

    C – d’Arnaud, Wieters
    CI – Rizzo, Rendon, Mancini
    MI – DeJong, Villar, Owings
    OF – Betts, Cruz, Inciarte, Gardner, Bradley Jr, Parra, Almora Jr
    SP – Keuchel, Cole, Price, Snell, Wacha, Rodon, Nelson
    RP – Giles, Herrera, Brach, Ziegler

    • The Great Knoche says:

      @Desmond:Go heavy on SP and find as many as you can who have starting gigs next couple rounds.

      Then Depth everywhere with guys who might get 400ABs, multi-positional eligibility where you can.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @Desmond: Thanks! Looks solid so far on hitting, your pitching looks like a mess. You better get some decent SPs now…

      • Desmond says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Thanks fellas. Yeah, picking towards an end of a round meant I kept missing out on earlier SP targets, which meant I didn’t like the options, so went for hitters, which meant I then got further behind…

  2. Wild Thing says:
    (link)

    Thanks Grey –

    How long should I sign Benintendi for? 3 years for $16 annually or 4 years for $22? I have plenty of cap space and Mike Trout for the next 3 years at $52 for relative value. I was thinking only 3 years but after seeing him ranked in the top 20 am debating the extra year.

    I’m big on Mazara this year. Think he has a chance at finishing in the top 20 OF?

    • Duda Want to Build a Snowman? says:

      @El Marco: Think he’d need regression / flops from several guys on this list.

            (link)

            @Grey:
            I’m in a H2H points league so Puig will probably finish around 20 but worried about his consistency

  4. Kas says:
    (link)

    Grey,

    Please choose one to draft this season. Ozuna or Benintendi? Thanks.

    • Willy Mo says:
      (link)

      @Kas: haha he ranked numerically based on preference and discussed both players like 5 inches above this… well you could be projecting this on a very large screen…. just scoll up!

      • Curious George Springer says:
        (link)

        @Willy Mo: To be fair, he will tank Scherzer as his number one SP, but he will tell us that he would not draft Scherzer and that he would wait and take like the 10th best SP.

        Just because a guy is ranked in a certain spot doesn’t mean you’d necessarily prefer to take him where he is being drafted.

  5. Scott Kimmel says:

    Hey Grey,

    Would you make this trade? I trade minor leaguers Luis Urias, 2B SD, and Ryan McMahon 1B,3B, COL and I get Miguel Andujar 3B, NYY and Vlad Jr.

      • Scott Kimmel says:
        (link)

        do you think I should try and rework the deal? I hate giving up Urias

        • Grey

          Sure, try it

          • Scott Kimmel says:

  8. ned says:

    Trying to figure out my last keeper slot (H2H Categories, 6×6). First three keepers are Bryant, JD Martinez and Severino. Last one is between Devers and Buxton. I’d been planning to keep Devers (seems like he has more longterm value) but Buxton is cheaper, I already have a 3B, and rankings like this make me nervous. Thoughts?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @ned: I’d go Bux

  9. The Great Knoche says:
    (link)

    Finally agree on someone we will not own. Aaron Judge. Second half pitcher adjustments showed where he likely will be. Only caveat is with Giancarlo in lineup, they may not be able to make him swing at as many bad pitches depending on how lineup shakes out.

    Machado, Bellinger, Judge. Until they show ability to re-adjust approach to the adjustments that have been made against them (which wont be by March 24th) I wont be owning them where they are getting drafted.

    • Justin says:
      (link)

      @The Great Knoche:

      Bellinger wasn’t as awe-inspiring the second half of the season but he certainly held his own. .538 slugging for 2nd half is certainly pretty good. It’s not like he fell off the table.

      And Judge crushed it in Sept/Oct, so you could say Judge adjusted to the adjustment.

      Machado is overhyped, no argument there.

      • The Great Knoche says:
        (link)

        @Justin: Bellinger K/BB% shows me he hasn’t. Not saying I wouldnt take him around pick 40, but I’m not owning him in the top 20.

        Judge did have late season surge, but I just can’t see myself owning a guy with a 30% K rate in the first two rounds.

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @The Great Knoche: Disagree about Machado. He’s had 5 full seasons. Any adjustments and re-adjustments have been made by now. He’s a beast and still only 25 years old. I’d have no problem taking him back of the first round.

      • The Great Knoche says:
        (link)

        @Cram It: Sorry you’re right, Machado is who he is, but here’s Me, Quoting Me from Top 10 post last week.

        Machado…Meh.

        Even during 2nd half his pulled ground ball rate was not good which is what was driving down his BABIP. Unless he stops rolling over he is going to still struggle with BA. He had one month, July with a high LD%, and in August he hit 12 of his HRs. Otherwise his 2nd half was very similar to his 1st.

        Not taking him in first round personally.

        March/Apr .224
        May .191
        June .242
        Jul .327
        Aug .341 (.292 BABIP)
        Sep .230

        I’ll take , Bryant, Giancarlo, Votto, Freeman, Blackmon, and Rizzo, before Manny.

        • Cram It says:
          (link)

          @The Great Knoche: Ok, those stats are from last year. He had an off year in the BA dept for sure. Following the O’s all year, his struggles were certainly a talking point locally, he was pressing, and still 33/95. I don’t think in his 6th year, pitchers have figured him out or he’s lost his way. He’s a .280 hitter to me.

          • The Great Knoche says:
            (link)

            @Cram It: not saying he’s horrible, but he has struggled last 2 years for extended periods. taking him Mid 2nd not late 1st

            • batflix says:
              (link)

              @The Great Knoche: mid 2nd but not late first? that’s really not much of a difference

                @batflix: Big difference indeed – Agree with Knoche the year he got 20 sbs propelled him into the 1st rd….. 2 years later hes there on name value alone-
                Not even close to a 1st rder imo

    mccutchen put up 94/28/88/.279/11 last year i feel like him and santana are almost the same player.

    Where u seeing mccutchen vs santana consensus adp right now?

    • The Great Knoche says:

      @Willy Mo: McCutchen is also old, and just got traded to a bad team with a not so great lineup, and a giant abyss of a stadium.

      Santana is young, plays in a Miller Park with a good lineup.

      That being said Cutch has been going well before Santana in early drafts. Mostly, because majority of fantasy baseball writers are sheep.

        @The Great Knoche: Cutch is what, 30? Hes not thaaaat old. Hes also played every game or just about 3 years in a row. Not hating on the santana rank at all, i think i prefer santana, i was just curious from a adp and value standpoint as i do think they will have simmilar value. But yeah if they go around the same or if Cutch is going before him, I go Santana

    Judge in Sept&Oct. .311/.463/.889

    Killed it towards the end of the season and postseason.

    Seems like you are giving more weight to a bad August than the majority of the season. And yes I have a man-crush on Judge so be tender…

    • Willy Mo says:

      @Justin: i think the ranking is fair if you ignore judges raw power plus park effect which Grey is doing. In the video and write up he comments about acknowledging judges hard contact but i dont think theres enough being weighted towards all his attributes. Combine his size, strength, avg exit velo (95mph vs Bellinger 91mph) superior launch angle for homers, avg hr distance, ect… Steamer only has Judge for 37 homers, clearly expecting a regression to the “average” for homers per fly ball and number of fly balls hit, ect. But judges swing and strength are anything but average.

      We have also seen Judge look really bad (september call up 2016), then adjust and crush it (first half of 2017), fall into a slump after pitchers adjust (half of july thru august), then bounce back to be player of the month in September 2017 and nearly win the league MVP while keeping the yankees in the division race with boston until the final week. All in his rookie season.

      The guy by all accounts is mature beyond his years and a tireless worker at his craft and in excellent physical shape and health. His plate discipline was uncanny for a rookie or for a veteran for that matter. I dont see how calling for 20% regression makes sense for this guy. Hes not your ordinary player.

      And lets not forget the ballpark. Judge goes oppo for 320 feet on a pop up. Yankee stadium is really a joke.

      Grey does give Judge 40 homers but its irrelevant. Raking him as the 10th best outfielder gives you no hope at drafring him in redraft leagues. Some folks are more than ok with that. I think hes worth reaching for, clearly. 121/54/128/.276/8

        707 slugging in Sept/Oct if you count postseason

          Didn’t he hit .188 in the postseason?

            @Grey: Tell you one thing he def was a lot better in the playoffs than Bellinger. But in regards to Wily Mo, park factors mean nothing for Judge. He literally hit 0 home runs last year due to park according to analysis

              I don’t doubt Judge can hit the ball out of any park, he’s like Giancarlo… They average home runs out of every park, even Yellowstone…

    Kind of off topic here but would you deal the #1 pick in prospect draft (Otani) for Walker Buehler and Fernando Tatis Jr? Dynasty year 5 (payout) looking to start my move to the top from last place. My hitting roster is stacked and my pitching is dismal. Consider my best pitcher currently is Carlos Rodon.

    “and they’re currently going in the same round in drafts, sometimes back-to-back like Jennifer Connelly in Requiem for a Dream”

    I come for the analysis but i stay for the anal ass is? what?

    We are only 4 posts away from pitcher rankings. That is where you morph from a Leaping Lanny to a Genius. Can’t wait.
