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

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      @Wilson: I like my name with a W, makes it sound like John Wayne is saying it… Yes, age should be considered

    Thanks for all the hard work Grey….This is the first site I visit every day and one of the few I even need to visit other than rotoworld for the daily news updates…I’ve finished in the $ (top 4) every year since I started using your advice…

    Great job as always….good luck to all Razzballers << your mom's term in 2016.

    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.

    16 team keeper league, 5×5, roto.

    my current 5 keepers are Bumgarner, deGrom, Machado, SMarte, Pederson.

    should I trade Pederson to get Francisco Lindor?

  7. Sean says:

    I have the option of keeping 4 out of 5 of these guys…
    Yu Darvish (22nd round)
    Miguel Sano (21st round)
    Matt Harvey (15th round)
    Chris Archer (9th round)
    George Springer (11th round)

    Who shouldn’t I keep?

    On the other hand, because you mentioned the “Squatty Potty” a few posts ago I made the mistake of googling it. Now, the internets never stop trying to sell me one! Too many diagrams! Turn it off, please!

    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…”

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @JimmyBond: Yeah, it’ll be along next week

      • JimmyBond says:
        (link)

        @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

            Grey says:
            (link)

            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
    Thor. $1
    Fielder,Belt or Lawrie as last keeper?

  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
