Today, is the day in history known as, “Aw, sookie sookie, don’t need the nookie, Grey’s giving me a fantasy baseball cookie.”  Or, more succinctly, the top 500 for 2018 fantasy baseball.  A few years ago, the top 500 was only 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, eighteen after twenty, comes the top 500 for 2018 fantasy baseball.  Or as I like to call it, from Mike Trout A to chimpanzee.  Actually, I don’t 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 wax from your ears 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 Jose Peraza better than Orlando Arcia, according to the top 20 shortstops, but do I like Peraza better than Matt Olson?  Okay, it’s not that simply.  You’ll notice after the top 200, positions start to get clumped together.  I might be the only fantasy baseball ‘pert to tell you this, but it doesn’t matter where, say, Eric Thames is ranked vs. Jeurys Familia.  If you need a closer, Thames isn’t going to help you.  He can be ranked 75 spots in front of Familia and it doesn’t matter.  That’s why I have the 2018 fantasy baseball rankings broken down by positions.  If you need a 1st baseman, where Justin Bour vs. Greg Bird matters, but where Bour vs. Realmuto really doesn’t matter.  Also, there’s no comments about players, which you really should know prior to drafting.  In other words, Tommy Pham might be in the 80’s overall, but am I drafting him?  Well, you’d know if you read the top 40 outfielders.  There’s also a top 100 for 2018 fantasy baseball to help you.  Also, the Fantasy Baseball War Room and tomorrow will be a pitchers pairing tool, then on Monday will be our Razzball league signups.  Anyway, here’s the top 500 for 2018 fantasy baseball:

2017 Champ with you and the Razzball teams incredible help and entertainment!!!!! THANK YOU.

16 team H2H keeper league w/ 2B, BB, & OPS and IP, L, QS in addition to the standard categories. Auction Draft. Limited to 30 waiver moves and no bench spots, so streaming is not an option.

We keep 5 players or $60 in value (Yahoo league, but keeper values based on ESPN keeper $ amounts).

I think Severino (1) and Ian Happ (2) are easy choices. For the remaining $58 and/or 3 players who do you keep?

Trea Turner (35)
Anthony Rizzo (29)
Edwin Encarnacion (20)
Dee Gordon (18)
AJ Pollock (16)
Matt Carpenter (13)
Aaron Nola (6)
Dexter Fowler (2)
Delino DeShields (1)

I think Turner over Rizzo (although having him at 2B is really intriguing), but then I start getting all over the place

Turner + (Edwin or Gordon) + Fowler
Or
Turner + (Pollock or Carpenter) + (Fowler or Nola)
Or
Something totally different?

Thoughts? Thanks in advance

Hey Grey,

getting ready for the start of the season and sitting on a smorgasbord of pitching but only 4 spots that I can fill.

opinion on who I should keep?

J. Lester
C. Morton
M. Tanaka
C. Kimbrel (only closer)
Z. Davies
J. Urena
R. Lopez
J.A. Happ
K. Graveman

I also picked up Hunter Green on a supplimental halfway thorugh the season last year but am thinking if I can to use him to sweeten a trade ifI really need to open space

I was thinking of keeping:

C. Morton
M. Tanaka
C. Kimbrel (usually like to have 3 relievers for our points makeup)

and either Hunter Greene or Zach Davies.

I have been shopping Lester around for picks as I really think he only has a year or two left and I don’t want to wait until it is to late to get value out of him.

thoughts?

Just putting in my $0.02, half the fun of owning players in fantasy baseball is so you can watch them. If you got a boner for Cody B, let it rage…if you got a chubby for Judge, rock out. Sometimes you get Odor’d or Desmondeded…dammit, I’m undoing my argument. BASICALLY FOLLOW YOUR ERECTION.

I heard two different analysts in the last two days saying they thought Bellinger might have been a bit exposed the last two months of last year. That’s what my eyeballs told me too.

Seems like every year there’s a guy you’re very high on and then I come in and give you the agita about him. I think it’s Cody this year. Love him long term, see this year as the proverbial year of adjustments. Could see a slow start and a big finish with the slow start toning down the numbers enough to make him underperform a really high draft slot.

@Grey:

You might be right. The spike in GBs second half feels like a part of the story to me. Reduction in Ks came with a drop in power. I’m gonna sit this year out on him. His August September ABs had a different look to my eyes.

@Grey: Judge played through a shoulder injury in the 2nd half, but he’s just as risky as Bellinger. Don’t see either returning top 25 value this year, but each of them are worth a roll of the dice in the 3rd round this year. Enormous ceilings, but I see a slight dip in their immediate futures.

@Grey: Maybe it’s the tall, lanky, lefty with power narrative, or it could be the Dodger tie-in, but he reminds me of Shawn Green. A bit more swing and miss and less speed in his game though. Green had a helluva career, and I expect the same from Bellinger. Just think there’ll be some inconsistency in the short term.

@J-FOH: Guys like Lindor and Trea have smaller strike zones and are more contact oriented hitters though. Young left-handed hitters generally have a steep learning curve when it comes to facing LHPs too (even though Bellinger was solid against them last year). Players like Harper and Rizzo come to mind in this regard.

@Sweatpants Nation: Pro-rater! I’m not worried about the postseason results, just what I saw with his long swing being exploited by good pitching. I think he’ll make adjustments, and not every team has good pitching, so he’ll still get his. Might be wise to expect something more realistic though.

@Grey: He looked relaxed and chill in August but he got hurt and only had 65 AB’s. I think you both make good points. I got a lot of eyes on him or is it my eyes were on him a lot and you can tell when he’s pressing and when he’s not. Collectively the Dodgers stunk up the joint in September which falls into the intangible category so that’s why I wrote off a chunk of that month. The playoffs on the other hand are a tough read because you could see how bad he was pressing and it showed. To go with greatest shape theory, he hit the weight room (added 15 lbs) and training hard this off season to get better. I like that in players, he’s not Matt Kemp

@Grey: Shawn Green, not a bad comp. I love how Bellinger in his first 2 years in rookie ball was more of a GB hitter, didn’t really hit for power. Dodgers told him they wanted him to hang dong more, so he completely changed his swing and then basically immediately started to hang more dong. That’s an impressive change with how quick the results were, swing changes can be tricky. “The Kid” is gifted!

Thanks for the rankings, Grey! Wanted to get your thoughts on Rhysus keeper value.
My 3 current keepers are:
Rizzo – 4th round (moves up 1 round per year)
Harper – 6th round (moves up 2 rounds per year)
J. Ramirez – 10th round (moves up 2 rounds per year)

Since I am running out of years on Rizzo and harper and Rhysus is ranked 44th overall, would you consider keeping Rhysus in the 19th round (moving up 3 rounds per year) and trying to trade one of the 3 above?

Here’s a little story I’ve been picking up on…new Red Sox manager Alex Cora is a big believer in the stolen base. Jackie Bradley was saying he was looking forward to being given the green light a lot more and when Cora was asked he talked up the value of the running game. Pops up in a couple of local rag articles on the Red Sox as well.

This is very interesting. If you could add 10 bags to the projected totals of a lot of their guys, things get pretty interesting. Benintendi at 30. Bogaerts at 25-30, Mookie at 40. Heck, I was taking a look saw Devers had 18 steals one year at high A. Watching him last year he does look athletic enough. If he gave you 12 or so, man his draft price looks really nice all of a sudden.

Worth monitoring.

@Grey:

The Correa thing is really hard to figure because he’s had good success when he has run. It’s not like with Springer where he just really stinks at stealing bases.

If you look at Benintendi’s minor league record, he actually showed a running game at least equal to if not a little stronger than Bradley. I think you have to separate fast from base stealing. Stealing bases has a lot to do with a mentality. There’s a confidence and an aggression. Goldy isn’t that fast, but he’ll take some bags.

I think the organizational philosophy varies. Some teams seem to have a “don’t steal unless you get a sign to go” or one or two guys only have a green light. Some teams seem to have a green light for everybody unless they get a stop sign in which case that would seem to feed into player willingness. Teams might vary quite a bit based on numbers as to what situations they’ll let their players go.

Tough to figure out.

@Grey: What about position in lineup? Bregman predominantly hit out of the 2 hole or the 8/9 hole last year, I think those spots set up better for steals. I didn’t pay quite as much attention to Sox last year, but I want to say beintendi hit 2/3? and JBJ hit anywhere from 5-8? But the stros probably don’t need their cleanup hitter swiping bases. Not sure if this is right, just another angle to look at.

Question for Grey or anyone in the community.

I have a chance to nab Moncada in an 8 team roto league. 6 X 6 OPS. Owner is keeping him currently but he is a bit frustrated and thinks that Moncada wont be really good for a few more years. I agree but want to know if I should give it a shot.

I was thinking of offering either Eloy or Robles for Moncada straight up. Would that be worth it? Or do Eloy and Robles have a brighter future than Moncada?

For reference I would probably drop Merrifield for Moncada if I completed the deal. Here is a list of my keepers now.

Merrifield

Rhys
Pollock
Blackmon

Bregman

I have always valued hitting more than pitching and have loaded up on hitters and waited on pitching. Last year 31 players hit at least 30 HR. 73 hit at least 25 HR. Thats crazy. Quality pitching on the other hand seems to be a lot more scarce. I know your thoughts about not getting aces and having a safety net, but doesn’t it put you at a disadvantage if you wait and don’t have a true ace when other teams will have one or two and still can get productive hitting later. I have an innings cap to work with too so quality of innings is important as is k/9 since more k’s are better in less innings. Wins have a lot of variables but we also use quality starts too which are more predictable. Do these factors change your strategy?

Should call this the Book of Grey since it’s my Bible. Thanks for the whole month+ of killer analysis!

12-team, H2H, AVG and OPS league, current keepers are:
Blackmon
Abreu
Rendon
Schoop
Choose one 13th Rounder: Devers / Realmuto

Was leaning Devers but he’s unproven and I already have Rendon, plus 3B feels DEEP. I hate catchers but does it make more sense to put a top guy in there instead?

Thanks G

Look forward to this post every year. Thanks Grey. Trying to decide whether I should be worried about my starting pitching. Ten team H2H keep 20 forever 6×6 (OPS and Holds). Nine Start limit per week. Planning on keeping the following, do I need to make a trade for a higher ranked starter? One option I have is to use Justin Smoak as trade bait.
Lance McCullers Jr.
Rich Hill
Jose Berrios
Gerrit Cole
Marcus Stroman
Danny Salazar
Taijuan Walker
Dylan Bundy.

Thanks for all the rankings posts. I also have been enjoying the podcasts at the beginning of each post.
My question is what sort of notes or cheat sheets do people take to redrafts to help them along with a one minute time limit per pick? I’m old, and old school so I really don’t want to use a computer, just some notes on paper is what I’m comfortable with. I’ve done a few mocks and 6 NFBC drafts already so I’m getting a handle on the player pool but what has been stated here often each draft goes in a different direction. I’ve intentionally drafted from different spots as well, but these are the 4 hour variety so no pressure. I have a couple $400 entry fee 12 team roto drafts coming up in March and really don’t want a long list of names. Maybe there isn’t anything easy but any ideas or suggestions from the razzball nation might help me get organized. Thank you.

If JD signs with the Snakes what happens with Yasmany? Is he their 4th OF at that point? Could see them rolling out Peralta over him in the desert. That would suck.

A little worried about this possibility for NFBC after reading about JD meeting with them last night, but who knows with Boras.

@Grey: Snakes hate his D so maybe they can move him to AL and he could DH. He’s got a lot of money left and I’d almost think they’d have to trade him and at least some of that money to sign JD

I’m sorry if it was confusing which trade do you like better if I was to make it my Charlie Blackmon $21 for his Yasiel Puig $22 and Justin Turner $16 or do you like trade scenario B my Charlie Blackmon $21 for his AJ Pollock $19 and Luis Castillo $6

Like I said before it’s an NL auction $260 budget five by five Roto with $5 inflation per year

Grandmaster Grey, I see you have Barnes and Grandal for a combined 700 something AB’s. What are your thoughts on these 2? Do you think Grandal gets traded? If not, do you see Barnes playing more? Seems like they like Barnes more based on playoffs last year. I like Barnes a lot for the league I’m in and feel like I can probably get him in the last round.

@Crime Dog: I see your write ups on both in the catcher rankings. I’m just curious to get more thoughts on how you came up with a combined 750 or so AB’s between them. That to me would imply one getting traded.

Grey! Thank you for the rankings! I am a long time, loyal reader and appreciate all of the hard work that goes into the site. I apologize for asking a question that most likely has been asked before, but I think could be beneficial for draft prep. What would be the benefit/down fall for drafting solely using Rudy’s-Steamer projections as a ranking system and just draft the most valuable players? Use your rankings of course to know what you should be looking for in a draft (aka, I need steals, I am drafting Marte next over Rendon, etc.) but just use the dollar amounts to draft the best overall value.
Is there any reason to not do this?
Thanks!

Noticed that Delmonico is OF eligible in the NFBC. It looks like he is in your top 60 OFs? If so, he is a potential steal, as his ADP is almost 500.

As far as Delmonico goes… can see lots of steak jokes coming this year. I’m sure that dood is used to that already. Anyways, I’ll def be owning him everywhere if he is as cheap in ESPN/Fantrax as he is in NFBC right now.

It was the first thing I did this morning when I woke up… CTRL+F+’Beck’, followed by “Scoot.’ I think I’ll live. As long as I don’t bench him for his 4 HR game. I did that with Rendon and Scooter last year. I recall you did with Rendon too.
