Four score and seventeen-hundred rankings posts ago, my Fordfathers said, “Stop calling us Fordfathers, you idiot, it’s forefathers.” In order to form a more perfect fantasy baseball ranking system, we stopped ranking for fantasy baseball and simply said, “Eff it, let’s just let Grey rank 500 or so Mr. So-and-So’s.” Or, more succinctly, the top 500 for 2022 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 drafting in one-person leagues because no one knew fantasy baseball or baseball. In a few years from now, this is going to be a top 10,000 and I’m going to be ranking Ronald Acuña Jr. Jr. Jr. Today, in this year, Twenty-Two after Twenty, comes the top 500 for 2022 fantasy baseball. Or as I like to call it, “Did he really rank Mr. So-and-So before Mr. So-and-So Jr.?” If Mr. So-and-So Jr. would stop chasing pitches in the dirt, I might’ve ranked him in front of Mr. So-and-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 Ketel Marte better than Brandon Lowe, according to the top 20 2nd basemen, but do I like Ketel Marte better than Starling Marte or anyone else in the Marte family? Okay, it’s not that simple. You should read the blurbs for all players, but this top 500 should give you an idea. 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, Vidal Brujan is ranked vs. Camilo Doval. If you need saves, Brujan isn’t going to help you. He can be ranked 50 spots in front of Doval and it doesn’t matter. That’s why I have the 2022 fantasy baseball rankings broken down by positions. If you need a 1st baseman, where Bobby Dalbec vs. Ty France matters, but where Dalbec is ranked vs. Nate Pearson really doesn’t matter. Also, there’s no comments about players in this top 500, which you really should know prior to drafting. In other words, Shane Bieber might be in the 60s overall, but am I drafting him? Well, you’d know if you read my top 20 for 2022 fantasy baseball.  There’s also a top 100 for 2022 fantasy baseball to help you. Also, there’s our online War Room, which is downloadable, and it comes free with Razzball Subscriptions.

Also, where I had omitted the free agent projections previously, here I filled them in because, well, it was getting confusing for me with open spaces. All free agents’ projections are based on neutral parks or best guesstimates where they will end up, i.e., guys I think will end up in the closer role get saves projections. Oh, yeah, there’s closer projections here, too. Anyway, here’s the top 500 for 2022 fantasy baseball:

Grey: need your help desperately! Sorry to bother you on the weekend.

In a 5×5 12 team $260 roto with 5 keepers only for 2022

Just offered Marte $26, Bryant $14 and Hoskins $10 for my Tucker $32. Which side of the trade do you prefer?

Other keepers are only Judge$26 and Mahle $6

Thank you

really appreciate all the work you do. 12 team keeper H2H league, we keep 26 of 35 roster players. Some are no brainers to keep but it gets more challenge as you narrow it down. What do you think?

thinking more and more of letting Bellinger go. League has saves and holds. Really like Madrigals upside longterm so I want to hold him. Do I let Bauer or Glasnow go to compete this year? Keep more than one reliever?

Thanks. Do you keep Gleyber over DJ bc of age or stick with DJ bc of position eligibility? Rodon scares me for some reason. I think Severino will bounce back but I can probably redraft him.

Totally a take-it-or-leave it suggestion, but a column that would have great value would be prior year $$ earnings and/or prior year EOY ranking to see which players you think will be over and underperforming last season.

Weighing keepers at this point. This is a 10-team 6×6 league (OPS and Holds extra categories). We can keep 5 players allocated to the previous year draft round. My first three keepers are fairly obvious (draft round in parenthesis):

Trea Turner (14th)
Shohei Ohtani (DH) (26th)
Matt Olson (24th)

Looking at the following four for the last two draft spots:

Randy Arozarena (25th)
Franmil Reyes (13th)
Chris Sale (18th)
Ryan Mountcastle (18th)

Any recommendations. Thanks!

12 team h2h auction OBP (with TB) Keep 6

$32 Tatis
$17 Grisham
$11 Mullins
$9 Votto
$5 Vaughn
$4 Rodgers
$1 J. Rodriguez

$13 Alcantara
$5 Lynn
$4 McClanahan
$3 Manoah
$2 Severino
$1 J Gray

Right now, I am leaning towards keeping Tatis, Mullins, Rodriguez, Alcantara, McClanahan and Manoah.

Would you look to move one of the young arms like Manoah for a top young hitter? I feel like my pitching keeper options are stronger than my hitting and flipping Manoah for a hitter and maybe keeping 4 hitters instead of 3 would be a better gamble. Thoughts? Thanks!

Trying to understand why Sal Perez is ranked so low. I get we don’t pay for the position, but his projections look really similar to Abreu and Riley.

Perez: 82/33/91/1/0.269
Abreu: 81/30/101/1/0.255
Riley: 87/33/98/0/0.262

Just curious why you have him so low even with such similar projections.

Got an email from CBS sports that we have to renew leagues by TODAY to get the standard ‘discount’ – WTF? Before I do, is there ANY chance we want to switch?? (Fantrax?) I would love to cut that cord, but don’t know if it would make other’s heads explode if we used a new site…

Last keeper spot question… 12 team, 7×7 (Ks against, K/9, etc.), auction , $260, minimum keeper price $10.

Alcantara $14 or Kelenic $10
Keep 4 (other 3: Bichette $20, Tucker $12, Olsen $26).
Thanks and great work as always.

What are your thoughts about Rizzo? I don’t recall reading anything on him in your first base rankings since he is still a free agent. His ranking at 107 has him far enough in front of his ADP he could end up on several of my teams.

Thanks Grey!

I’d pass on Ketel for almost identical numbers from Bryan Reynolds 50 slots later.

Reply to  tommybones

Grey has said before, he has other 2B ranked ahead of Ketel enough that he’s probably not drafting him. But when healthy, Ketel has more potential than Reynolds as proven in 2019. If you need AVG pretty bad, Reynolds is good, but I’m not excited for 20 and 3 for his ADP. Personally, I’m not drafting either one.

Grey has also said his rankings are a guide. Use them as you feel you need to for your team.

Feels like Machado and Teoscar should swap positions. Machado has better projections and is also a 3B.

Reply to  tommybones

I think Grey once eluded to Teoscar could possibly be a 40 HR guy, and is in a pretty stacked lineup. But basically it comes down to your preference. If you’re afraid of the drop off at 3B after Machado, then switch Machado/Teoscar in your rankings. At 21 and 23 I don’t think you can go wrong!

I did this last week in a 12 team! I went Bichette, Yordan Alverez, then Machado with the 4th pick in the 3rd round. Got real lucky when Toescar was still there in the 4th!

Grey states a lot in his writeups that the rankings are guides. Draft your team how you want and make adjustments as the draft goes on!

I don’t really understand the $ column. Like Sal Perez and Stanton have near identical projections and the same $. No C bump?

Or Kiriloff’s stats seem better than Ozuna’s but Ozuna is $3 bucks over.

Thanks for releasing the Top 500 rankings sooner than expected! A great gift heading into the weekend.

A general question…For saves + holds leagues, how much do you downgrade a closer’s ranking since that category isn’t as scarce as just a saves category? In turn, how much a boost does a non-closer relief pitcher get? I realize it depends on the pitcher and situation, but thought there may be a quick rule-of-thumb to go by. Thanks in advance for your response and have a great weekend.
