Austin Bristow’s 2019 Top 300 Rankings

Austin Bristow's top 300 players ranked for 2019 redraft leagues!

Gooooood day to you all and happy holidays! In early October I began working to create my Top 300 rankings for 2019 redraft leagues. I’ve been promising these rankings would be posted in November, so throughout the past few weeks, I’ve been hard at work checking, adjusting, and finalizing all of the positional rankings and the overall 300. Finally, I have a product I’m proud to share with all of you, the list that I will be using for mock drafts throughout the offseason and into March’s draft season.

This is the first time you’ll see my rankings, but it is far from the last. I’ll be adjusting this initial draft throughout the offseason and posting monthly updates. In the future additions, expect to read about the adjustments that have been made from the previous version. Keep in mind, trades and free agent signings (especially relievers) could have a major contextual effect on a player’s rank going into the 2019 season. For now, though, let me explain the context of these rankings.

I’ve constructed my Top 300 based on a standard 12-team, 5×5, head-to-head categories league, only considering the 2019 season. The hitting categories considered were R, RBI, HR, SB, and AVG. For pitching stats: W, K, SV, ERA, WHIP. The positional eligibility columns are filled out to reflect ESPN leagues. If you play a Yahoo or CBS league, I am truly sorry. I’ve also included positional rankings after the overall list; I’ve listed my top 20 C, 1B, 2B, 3B, and SS, the top 50 OF, top 75 SP, and top 30 RP. Please note, the RP rankings will not include any players that I expect to be starting full-time; the RP section is intended for actual relievers likely to get saves or holds.

Without further ado, here are my top 300 players for 2019.

Austin Bristow II

Raised as an Atlanta Braves fan in central Illinois, Austin Bristow II attended Eureka College. Since cofounding his home league at age 16, Austin has been obsessed with fantasy baseball, always intent to stay ahead of the changes in player value. Austin serves as the Staff Manager for Pitcher List.

    Austin, you are a Delight. This is awesome. Thanks for making my lunch break interesting. I especially appreciate the positional rankings.
    Surprises: Rizzo so high; Encarnacion so low
    100% agree: Corey Seager – you’re paying for the name; Bauer is for real

    • Avatar theKraken says:

      How do you figure you are paying for Seager’s name? A year ago he was top 40 easily. I would put him much higher as there are few better hitters… last time he was healthy he was one of the best combinations of floor and ceiling. If he is healthy, then he is top 10. Maybe he is hurt forever, but I certainly like him more than Bregman and he was a better hitter than Lindor when they played at the same time. Seager really couldn’t do much more than he did in his healthy time, but I guess there is something not to like.

      • Avatar Ole Cars O Cars’ Car says:

        C Seager at his best is a good four-category producer. Mid 20 homer power. Nowhere near the run or RBI production of elite 4 category guys like Arenado. A couple of steals. Good to great average. He is just good. Not very good or elite. I’ll take Bregman 10 times out of 10 over Seager.

        • Avatar Steve says:

          Sigh. These comments are so short sighted. Let us review the tale of the tape.

          Corey is 24.
          Corey is a former first round pick.
          In Corey’s 1st full season he hit 26 homers, scored 100+ runs, and hit .308.
          He was the ROY and finished 3rd in the MVP voting that year.
          In Corey’s other full season, he hit 22 homers and hit .295.
          Corey is a career .302/.372/.494 hitter.
          No, Corey doesn’t run much, but he’s not slow. SBs have high variance year to year for non-burners (see Machado, Manny).
          Corey is 6’4”, 220 lbs. – does this seem like someone who doesn’t generate power?
          Did you know that players generally improve in their 20s? (especially those on the younger side with prospect pedigree).
          Before this season, who would you have taken over Trevor Story? Over Baez? Even over Yelich who previously was good, not great until his otherwordly 2nd half. How sure are you that Yelich outhomers Seager over the next 3 years?
          IMO, young Mr. Seager looks awfully similar to one Robinson Cano who was a 1st round fixture for the better portion of his peak.

          The point is that you are dismissing Seager beacuse you seem to think he is a known commodity. You think you “know” he will have meager R and RBI totals even though he will be hitting in the middle of the Dodgers lineup for years to come. You “know” he only has mid-20 homer power (If Lindor can hit almost 40 homers, you better believe Seager can too). Bregman had an awesome season, and I’m not saying I’d take Seager over him in a 2019 scratch, but I think there is a very fair chance Seager outperforms him. He’ll certainly out-earn him based on where he’s being drafted.

          He might be better in real life than in fantasy, but there is nothing “just good” about Corey Seager. He is an elite talent.

          • Avatar Ole Cars O Cars’ Car says:

            This is a fantasy baseball article Steve. In fantasy baseball he is just good to very good.

            • Avatar Steve says:

              His floor is very good. His upside is elite. Again, think prime Cano as I think that is a strong comparable. Just a year ago this guy was a 3rd pick and deservedly so. Unfortunately, he’s lost a year of development, which has let some contemporaries surpass him. Still doesn’t take away from his talent. If he blew up with a monster season this year or next, it shouldn’t surprise anyone in the slightest.

        • Avatar theKraken says:

          I would say that 30 HR is perfectly reasonable. Mid 20s is a lock. He is also one of a few players that is capable of hitting .300. Consider that a million RBI come along with that profile as well. You should remember that he is just a kid – I think Arenado is absolutely a reasonable outcome if he ever made any kind of improvement. I think he is elite if he is healthy – but that is not a given. Fine with me if the rest of the world is out! I appreciate the reply – it is always interesting to see how other people view the world.

    • Avatar Nick Gerli says:

      I’m with Steve on this one. People are seriously underrating Seager. The guy was an MVP candidate in his age-22 season. His career line is 302 / 372 / 494. What a floor! And that’s ignoring the 30+ HR upside he has as he matures. I get this is a re-draft, but I could easily see Seager hitting 30+ HR with a 310 / 385 / 530 line next year, which would make him a late first round value.

  • Avatar Upton Funk says:

    Great list! Curious why you have Matt Chapman (70) so much higher than Tim Anderson (150) and Villar (170) in this format (all 3 are vying for my potential final [7th] keeper slot). I had Anderson and Villar both over Chapman in my early rankings. Do you expect Chapman to breakout further on the power front + retain the average gains?

    • Avatar Nick Gerli says:

      If you’re in a keeper league Chapman is the no brainer choice. With that said, I agree that 70 is a bit too high for him in re-draft. Seems like he got a bunch of fortunate batted ball luck last year based on his 370 wOBA v. 333 xwOBA.

      Anderson and Villar are both bad hitters who could very easily find themselves on the bench in the second half. Their HR+SB combo is tantalizing, but it’s nothing you should be circling in the first 10-12 rounds.

  • Avatar Dan says:

    Aaron Hicks at 61 overall is interesting to me. He went 145 in your early mock draft. Seems like an enormous discrepancy. What’s changed to put him so high? I have him in a keeper league but was leaning towards letting him loose since I can keep only 6, but at 61 that would put him back in the conversation.

  • Avatar James says:

    Thanks for giving us something to think about. I’d love it if you could adjust your rankings for OBP leagues. It seems like OBP is used almost as much as AVG, but it’s much harder to find rankings.

  • Avatar Realist says:

    This list is Solid! Peraza is the only head scratcher for me, seems too low. The jury is out on Cory S folks. It’s put up or shut up in 2019.
