A mere year ago this was a top 400 for fantasy baseball.  A mere few years ago before those years ago, this was a top 300 for fantasy baseball.  Before that, it was 16 AD and I was rolling with Jesus to this deli that had great matzoh ball soup.  In a few years from now, this is going to be a top 10,000 and I’m going to be ranking Mike Trout Jr. Jr. Jr. the 15th. Today, in this year, sixteen after twenty, comes the top 500 for 2016 fantasy baseball.  Flippin’, right?  Or as I like to call it, from Mike Trout A to chimpanzee.  Actually, I don’t like to call it that.  So, this post isn’t meant to send shockwaves through your system.  The pipe cleaner that the doctor uses to get the clogged Cheeto out of your artery is meant for that.  This is simply to give you an idea of where guys are ranked in relation to other positions.  I.e., you know I like Jean Segura better than Ketel Marte, according to the top 20 shortstops, but do I like Segura better than Lucas Duda?  Okay, it’s not that simply.  You’ll notice towards the last top hundred there’s a ton of pitchers clumped together and a ton of outfielders.  I might be the only fantasy baseball ‘pert to tell you this, but it doesn’t matter where, say, Yangervis Solarte is ranked vs. Rick Porcello.  If you need a pitcher, Solarte isn’t going to help you.  He can be ranked 75 spots in front of Porcello and it doesn’t matter.  That’s why I have the 2016 fantasy baseball rankings broken down by positions.  If you need a 2nd baseman, where Scooter Gennett is vs. Kolten Wong matters, but where Scooter vs. Jay Bruce really doesn’t matter.  Also, there’s no comments about players, which you really should know prior to drafting.  In other words, Mark Trumbo might be in the early 100s overall, but am I drafting him?  Well, you’d know if you read the top 20 1st basemen.  There’s also a top 100 for 2016 fantasy baseball to help you.  Along shortly will be a Fantasy Baseball War Room and a pitchers pairing tool.  Anyway, here’s the top 500 for 2016 fantasy baseball:

    Hi Grwy, i m going to prepare a new keeper league draft. (6 keepers)
    Do you think it important to consider age in a kweper league? for example A-GON and Freeman are ranked closely in your ranking. A GON comes first. Does Freeman comes first when in a keeper league? thanks

    Great to see the auction values in there too, Grey–thanks for all the hard work. Given that these are your rankings, I assume these are your values, not Rudy’s. Is Rudy going to do his own auction values this year?

    Corey Dickerson Ranked 80th. $18, 469 at bats, 68 runs, 20 hrs, 75 rbi, 4 steals, .286 avg.

    Michael Conforto ranked 182nd. $6, 501 at bats, 62 runs, 21 hrs, 71 rbi, 2 steals .274 avg.

    I know I mentioned dickerson yesterday and not to beat a dead horse but I’m a little confused.

    You told me the 80th overall ranking of Dickerson was maybe a little high but that’s where he fell in the rankings based on the projection.

    Conforto’s projections are basicly identical to Dickerson’s but he’s ranked 102 spots after. Why the big gap in overall raking with these two players?

    • 'Saul Gooood, Man says:
      (link)

      @the swinging: I won’t speak for Grey, but maybe track record? Albeit Dickerson’s isn’t that long. And health concerns. I like the question.

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @the swinging: Maybe because his projections are based on his AB’s, which are pretty low, so the potential to improve the #’s is there with more AB’s. While Conforto is the opposite. 500 AB’s is a guess on the high side. With a potential decrease in PT, so will the #’s. That’s my expert conjecture.

      • the swinging says:
        (link)

        @Cram It: Conforto is projected for only 32 more at bats. They are actually in similar situations where how much they are platooned vs lefties is up in the air right now.

        • Cram It says:
          (link)

          @the swinging: I think Conforto getting less than 500 AB’s is a major factor in the ranking. If not, I don’t know. I couldn’t care less about Dickerson.

          • the swinging says:
            (link)

            @Cram It: Yup I agree I’m not touching Dickerson and I’m interested in Conforto. Dickerson will be there every time in drafts at pick 80 and I kinda doubt Conforto hangs around til pick 182.

            • Cram It says:
              (link)

              @the swinging: I like Conforto a lot too. He’s around 185/ADP 212 on fantasypros. I could see him going around RD 15 on average. But if you want him, you wouldn’t wait that long anyway.

    Glad to have you back Grey!

    Had a question about a keeper league trade: I’m trying to win now and have a huge auction budget for our draft. However I’m afraid I’m giving up too much future talent for a one-year run:

    Should I trade my Carlos Rodon (2 more keeper years at league minimum) Moncada Meadows and Margot (all minor leaguers – no cost) for his Jose Abreu (2 more years, $30+) and Marte (one more year at reasonable price)?

    Our shared affection for Raisel gets me excited in ways I wish it didn’t. I like the ranking over some of these other bigger name SP. I’ll definitely be tuned in to as many of his starts as I can this year.

    Hooray on the war room. I just asked last night on top 100 post: “is anyone doing the Fantasy War Room excel spreadsheet this year? My draft won’t be the same without it. Last year I customized mine with some conditional formatting to make players’ names red when they were picked by others, and incorporated the Razzball rankings too…”

      • JimmyBond says:

        @Grey: sweet. that still wasn’t soon enough, so I figured out how to update my customized war room from last year with your stats from this year so I can start to play around (stats only, not tiers). too excited for baseball to start? maybe.

        • JimmyBond says:
          (link)

          @JimmyBond: do you guys publish anywhere a K/9 or BB/9 data set in similar fashion to the top 500 rankings above? If yes would be great to incorporate into the spreadsheet, as you could do a quick difference calculation to highlight ‘ace’ types

          • Grey

            Check Rudy’s raters

            • JimmyBond says:
              (link)

              @Grey: thanks, found the IP/K/BB data and made my own difference calculation with a cutoff of 7 to highlight 2015 Ace potential (or reality). Nothing more satisfying than working on a spreadsheet on valentine’s day!

          • JimmyBond says:
            (link)

            @JimmyBond: I pulled in the FantasyPros consensus ratings to my spreadsheet too. Interesting to compare where you are high vs others.

            For the following players Grey you are ranking players the highest: Rizzo (4 vs 10) Bryant (9/14), Marte (12/23), Mookie (13/17), JDMart (14/27), Frazier (22/38), Polanco (32/83), Braun (29/40), Pujols (34 / 69), Cain (32/46) Maikel Franco (52 / 129). And then it gets even better…you are highst rater on Chapman, Kimbrel (RP?), and then Salazar too (60/84).

            On the negative side, you have lowest vs consensus ranking on Kershaw (16 vs 5), Pollock (31/15), Cruz (65 / 30), Jones (66 / 43), CarGo (67 / 45), Keuchel (73 / 48), Grienke (74 / 35), and Cano (92 / 53).

    Hi Grey…. Would you keep Fielder at $10 or Belt at $7? Fielder starts the year as DH only. Also,could keep Lawrie at $5. Seven other keepers:
    Trout $25
    Betts $20
    Arenado $13
    C Seager. $10
    Aroldis. $15
    Salazar. $10

  15. Hi Grey!

    Super excited that this is all here and I can really start diving into your rankings to make them my own.

    Keeper/trade question. 12 team H2H/Points (does its best to simulate WAR) league. We get to keep players based on tiers.

    I have Chris Davis in my top tier, who I am not very excited about. I have an opportunity to get Abreu or Encarnacion… Are either of those guys a big enough upgrade to bother? if so, who you like better?

    For reference, here are their point totals from last year:
    CD – 1070.10 (8th highest point total for position players in 2015)
    JA – 943.50
    EE – 1004.20

    This is a 10 team H2H 6×6 keeper league with OPS & K/9 as the extra categories. My keepers that I’ve decided on so far are: Rizzo, Stanton, Marte, Bautista, Votto, Rendon, Buxton, JFern, & Carrasco. On offense we start C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, MI, CI, 4 OF, 2 Util.

    Based on our point system I can add either Jacob deGrom to that list or a combination of any 3 of these other guys: Carlos Martinez, Stroman, Gausman, Billy Hamilton, Baez.

    I’m leaning towards deGrom but would love to hear what any of you think.

    You have Matt Adams at 122 overall with about 500 AB, won’t he sit every game there is a left pitcher? I can’t figure out what to make of him and if I should hold on to him.

    Top 500 and I’m just starting my prep? I’m tardy to the pardy, yo!

    Need some keeper help. 12 team 5×5 with OBP instead of AVG. Caveat 1: Helping a friend who is in year 2 of taking over someone’s team. Caveat 2: I don’t know jack about keepers and I refuse to learn so I don’t know why he’s asking me for help. Caveat 3: Can’t keep any first or second rounders so no studs listed below.

    Keeper possibilities:
    Hosmer round 3 keeper
    Yasmany round 5
    Brantley round 11
    Gattis 14
    B-Moss 18
    A-Russ 22
    Michael Taylor 23

    Rodon 15
    Henry Owens 23
    Eovaldi 26

    Free agents in no partic order (kept in rounds 14, then 12, then 10, etc)
    Nola FA
    Texiera FA
    Plouffe FA
    Trea Turner FA
    And some other crap not worth mentioning.

    Must keep 6 total including 2 P and 2 hitters. Thoughts?

    Feeling good about [email protected], A-Russ @22 and Rodon @15. Agree?

    Thanks and looking forward to another season of questions that are not this long,

        @Grey: yeah, I don’t know how to get better keepers considering there are no round 1 or 2 keepers. and there’s a 2 round keeper penalty. so there goes anyone in the first four rounds from the prior year. and sleepers and rookies go crazy early.

    Vogelsong’s mom must be so proud of him right now!

    Based on what ESPN + Yahoo look like, I will almost definitely (save for a top 3 pick) own Rizzo, Upton, and Syndergaard (who I’m targeting as my ace) on every team. I’ll take that ANY day!

        @Grey: Also, how are you the only one that recognizes Rizzo as the second coming of Goldy? Seems bonkers that there’s *some, albeit small* chance of drafting Goldy in the first round, then having Rizzo (16th! on ESPN) fall to you in the 2nd!!

        • Grey

          Grey says:

    Grey, Thanks to your expertise over the past few years, I will be keeping Goldy, Harper, Arenado, Marte, and Arrieta for a total of $93 in a $250 budget, 12 team H2H league, and I won last year! Looking forward to another great season!

    Kyle Schwarber $24
    Anthony Rendon $18
    Todd Frazier $23
    Jason Heyward $18
    Clayton Kershaw $38

    Great job on a these rankings As usual very nice read.

    Need 4 Keeps…

    Chris Davis ….lose 3rd Rounds pick
    G Polanco……Lose 6th Round Pick
    G Cole………Lose 8th Round Pick
    B Buxton…….Lose 20th Rd Pick
    N Mazara………Lose 27th Rd Pick
    AJ Reed……….Lose 28th Rd Pick

    10 team, standard roto, everyone keeps 5. I have trout + stanton and could possibly flip corey seager for betts. would you do that, even with seager’s upside and the dirth of SS? If they reject betts, another dude offered marte, should i settle for that? or just hold corey?

    Thanks for all the great content the past month, Grey. You’re a machine.

    I need help picking the best six (6) keepers out of this group (keep forever 7×7 league; +OPS and FLD% for hitters; QS, ERA, WHIP, K/9, IP, SV, HLD for pitchers):
    1. Kris Bryant in Round 7
    2. Jose Abreu in Round 9
    3. Carlos Carrasco in Round 11
    4. Danny Salazar in Round 15
    5. Joc Pederson in Round 17
    6. Nelson Cruz in Round 18

    (link)

    how did c.anderson not make the top 500, but you have davies down for 150 innings when you had c.anderson at SP 132? don’t get me wrong i hope davies gets that job too, but if you thought that was true, why was anderson ranked in SP but not davies? steamer/rudy has him down for about half that many innings (74).

    2. pts league. need 4 keepers, carrasco/posey/correa are easy. here’s settings:
    Singles (1B) 1 Doubles (2B) 2
    Triples (3B) 3 Home Runs (HR) 4
    Walks (BB) 1 Runs Scored (R) 1
    Runs Batted In (RBI) 1 Stolen Bases (SB) 2
    Strikeouts (K) -1 Extra Base Hits (XBH) 1
    Sacrifices (SAC) 1 Game Winning RBI (GWRBI) 1
    Hitting for the Cycle (CYC) 2 Grand Slam Home Runs (GSHR) 1
    Pitching
    Innings Pitched (IP) 1 Wins (W) 5
    Saves (SV) 5 Strikeouts (K) 1
    Shutouts (SO) 1 Holds (HD) 5
    Complete Games (CG) 3 Quality Starts (QS) 1
    No Hitters (NH) 10 Perfect Games (PG) 50

    this being the case do i keep (pts per game shown with from last year)
    schwarber (3)
    odor (2.7)
    ortiz (3.8)
    matz (15.4, carrasco’s was 16.5)
    stroman (17)
    iglesias (12.3)
    start 1 of each position with 1 util, 3 SP, 2 RP. 6 BN spots and at least 5 of these should be SP at any given time. SP are crazy valuable in this league.

    I’m in a league that uses 7 batting categories, K’s and OPS have been added, it also only has 2SP, 2RP, 1P for pitcher spots.
    Any suggestions on how you’d adjust rankings to suit?
    Last year I focused on low strikeout batters and then closers, I didn’t take a Starter til the 15th round

  55. Josh says:

    Hey grey, what are your thoughts to a league that uses these categories:

    OBP, RBI, R, SB, (TB-H).

    QS+W, ERA, WHIP, K, SVHD.

    TB-H is basically just counting stat form of OBP, it replaces HR and gives a slight boost to guys who rack up XBH’s.

      @Josh: sorry, i mean the counting stat form of ISO

  56. danny almonte says:

    Arenado, E5, J.Upton, Madbum
    Or
    Trout, Rendon, C.Santana, T.Ross?

    Grey,

    Are their hitters on this list that you would avoid in an OBP league where Ks count against you?

    Are their pitchers on this list that you’d avoid in a league that counts both WHIP and BB/9?

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      No, there’s not for Ks against you… WHIP is listed everywhere and WHIP goes hand in hand with BB/9

  58. Wilson says:

    Hi Grey, thanks for your article as always.

    I have Stanton, J Upton, JD, Bautista and I’m looking for a starter or steals.
    My thought was to trade J Upton away but your suggestion is Bautista due to too many similar hitters.

    Few comments from me,
    1. I’m worried about J Upton’s up and down.. which I’ve suffered last year.
    2. Of course Tiger’s line up is a huge plus, but Blue Jays’ line up is also very good.

    Except age , I’m still not sure the answer to be traded away is Bautista (however, Bautista may not be declined so fast this year supposedly). Thoughts appreciated. Thanks.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Yes, I’d trade away Bautista, who is much older than Upton…

    I’m holding several possible closers in a all keepers league.

    Who can be dropped now (which means not a closer) ? (5×5 with SV, no HD)

    Need assistance on keepers for a dynasty league (Lindor, M. Franco, Odor). Each are valued at $1 and I can only keep 2 of the 3. Along w/ the standard positions, we require MI, CI & Utility. I can either flip a quarter or rely on Grey. It’s too early in the morning to be making decisions like this.

    Hey, Grey. Khris Davis went to the A’s sometime yesterday, in return for prospects Jacob Nottingham and Bubba Derby (there’s a joke in there somewhere, but I’m way too tired to make it). How badly is this going to hurt Davis’ value, since most of his value comes from his power?

    • JeF WiTh 1 F says:
      (link)

      @High Five City: Not much…the park doesn’t help but I think he’s pretty much guaranteed starting OF AB’s which is the main concern..He has real power so the park won’t kill him.

  62. DBo says:
    (link)

    Dynasty league advice: AGon & Khris Davis or Fielder & Judge. My team is in a win now situation but does KrushDavis have significantly less value since he won’t be smashing homers in Milwaukee?

    Also was offered Lester for Judge/1st round 2017 pick.

    Thoughts? Thanks!

    So the Brewers just traded Khris Davis to Oakland. Reports have already come out that Dominho Santana will get at bats now in LF as well. With Davis getting traded, I think this now puts Santana from the 75% start range to now closer to the 90% start range, which would move his projected at bats from your 501 to closer to 600. That is a 20% increase, which when extrapolated to your projections, would now put him at 77 Runs, 26 HRs, 88 RBIs, 10 SBs. That is top 100 production, and means he should be a definite sleeper target given his plus 200 ADP. What do you think? Feels like a sure fire target in my 5 OF NL only league. Any changes now in your rank/opinion of Domingo given the Davis trade? Sure seems like the Brewera are willing to give the young guys all the at bats they can handle given they are now in full blown tank mode…

    16 team H2H Keeper League. Keep 5, standard + OPS, QS. Here’s my top talent (wish I could keep more than 5)

    Harper
    Rizzo
    Bautista
    Sano
    Heyward
    Eaton
    Arrieta
    Kluber
    Carrasco

    So based on your rankings, I should keep Harper, Rizzo, Bautista, Heyward, Arrieta.

    Would you recommend me getting cute and making a couple deals? Maybe Packaging Bautista + Eaton/Kluber/Carrasco for a top 10 talent? I could try Bautista and Eaton for Betts (owner expressed some interest). Any other recommendations on which direction to go? Ugh this is tough.

    • Mantis Toboggan MD says:
      (link)

      @Cheese: since you can’t keep eaton/kluber/carrasco anyway it’s not tough, if bautista + one of the guys you can’t keep gets you a player ranked higher than Bautista, there’s your answer. guys you can’t keep have no value for you after keepers are due.

    Is this silly talk?

    What is the earliest round he would be acceptable in?

    I love this time of year!

    I have a difficult decision to make for my 10 team, 5 keeper dynasty H2H league. So the first official round for everyone starts at pick 50. I have the 8th pick. Out of these players, which one would you NOT keep?

    Arrieta
    Cutch
    Goldschmiddy
    Frazier
    Just Dong
    Harper

    League is OBP, XBH, and we penalize for strike outs. I have free years for Soler, Billy Hamilton, and Baez. I was originally thinking it’s JD I omit since I have so much outfield already but the dude is so damn good. Scrap Frazier instead? Someone has the rights to Franco though so I may screw myself not keeping Frazier. Maybe not keep Arrieta and get a bunch of solid pitchers instead? Too many riches and not enough space. Any thoughts? Thanks!

  76. AL says:
    (link)

    Pick one:

    I can keep either:
    – Kris Bryant in Round 6 (Round 4 next year)
    – Rizzo in Round 9 (can’t keep him next year)
    – Carlos Correa in Round 15 (Round 13 next year)

    Todd Frazier – 8th round

    Arrieta in the 13th

    If I don’t keep Correa, I’m going to have to quit fantasy baseball. So can Arrieta’s value in the 13th really outweigh the Goldy keeper in Round 1? This is going to break my heart either way.

  85. Bill Smith says:

    Player A 162 game career average: 576 AB, 87 R, 153 H, 33 2B, 1 3B, 32 HR, 98 RBI, 6 SB, 69 BB, .266 AVG, .351 OBP (33 years old)

    Player B 162 game career average: 574 AB, 87 R, 166 H, 35 2B, 2 3B, 22 HR, 91 RBI, 3 SB, 71 BB, .285 AVG, .366 OBP (26 years old)

    Player A has the clear edge in HR’s, a slight edge in RBI & SB, while player B has the edge in basically everything else. *Not to mention Freeman matched his power output of 2014 in 191 less AB’s in 2015*

    Player A is Edwin Encarnacion, player B is Freddie Freeman. Please help me understand why Freeman is labeled “overrated”? Reading the comments about Freeman in the 1B rankings post got me curious as to what I’m missing.

    Thanks!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Freeman’s ceiling is 25 homers, Edwin’s is 40, with that comes more runs and RBIs

      • Bill Smith says:
        (link)

        @Grey:

        Hmm, Freeman’s 5 year career compared to Edwin’s last 5 years doesn’t make it as clear cut as throwing out “ceiling” numbers like that.

        Freeman’s RBI’s/AB over the past 5 years = 0.16
        E5’s RBI’s/AB over the past 5 years = 0.19

        Freeman’s Run total over the past 5 years = 402
        E5’s Run total over the past 5 years = 422

        I’m still not seeing this supposed HUGE difference in value between these 2 guys, especially when we’re obviously choosing to /ignore Freeman’s superior AVG & OBP, and the fact that he puts the ball in play far more often than does E5.

        Give me the guy who’s 7 years younger, and with exception to the wrist injury last year (that’s now by all recent reports fully healed), has been healthy. E5 has demonstrated an inability to stay on the field as well, constantly being plagued by injuries. Incredible to think that over the course of his entire career, he’s only played 146 games or more 3 times.

    I’m in a 3 keeper league, already holding onto Trout (1st Rd) and Arenado (5th Rd).

    Should I keep C.Carrasco (11th), J.D. Martinez (12th) or Chris Archer (16th)? I’m leaning towards J.D. Martinez and then stock piling on pitchers in the middle of the draft like last year (which worked incredibly well, won me the league).

    I also had David Price (3rd), Tyson Ross (8th) and Matt Harvey (6th)…not a bad year for my pitching staff. Thoughts??

I lean towards Carrasco since he’s a FA versus Archer in the 10 spot. yeah?

    In a new dynasty league that we started last year and we have to have 6 contracts moving forward for every year.

    Below I’ve listed my team from last year with the value they were drafted at and below that what I’m currently thinking for my contracts, let me know if you’d change anything. The way the league works is you can keep your player at the value you drafted them, but for every year you decide to add, you add $5 and keep them at that value for each year (Ex: Draft Harper @ $30, can keep him for 1 year @ $30 or 5 years @ $50)

    Hitters Draft Value
    Russel Martin $5
    Joey Votto $16
    Ian Kinsler $10
    Evan Longoria $18
    Ian Desmond $28
    Matt Duffy $5
    Rougned Odor $5
    Bryce Harper $30
    Michael Brantley $22
    Carlos Gonzalez $25
    Adam Eaton $1
    Gerardo Parra $5
    Josh Harrison $1
    Randal Grichuk $5
    Kyle Seager $17
    Maikel Franco $5

    Pitchers Draft Value
    Matt Harvey $17
    Stephen Strasburg $22
    Mashihiro Tanaka $13
    Hector Santiago $5
    David Robertson $1
    Darren O’Day $1
    Chris Archer $1
    Shelby Miller $1
    Jamie Garcia $5
    Jimmy Nelson $5
    Jon Gray $5
    Henry Owens $1

    Current Plan:
    Player Years Value
    Joey Votto 1 year $16
    Bryce Harper 5 years $50
    Stephen Strasburg 1 year $22
    Rougned Odor 2 years $10
    Chris Archer 2 years $6
    Matt Harvey 2 years $22

    Guys that I am going back and forth on are Maikel Franco @ $5, Adam Eaton at $1 and the lengths of my contracts. Really like locking Harper up for 5 years, especially at that price. Not sure about the others, wanted to give myself options for next year so I threw in a couple of 1 year contracts in case I get a great value somewhere else in the draft and did three 2 year contracts for my pitchers, don’t want to lock in on pitchers especially with two of them having history of arm injuries.

    Let me know your thoughts.

    Thanks!

    Two questions G-Man.

    1) long term pick between Dylan Bundy and Daniel Norris? Both in indefinite minor league spots on my roster but working on a trade which probably needs one spot.

    2) Polanco – keep in minor league roster spot in 2016 or activate him? I’m working on a trade to acquire Polanco and can keep him in minor leagues until you activate him. Obviously you think he will have a big 2016. Will his 2017 be better?

    Thanks.
