UPDATE: We have since updated our Dynasty Rankings for 2018, which can be found by position here.
There’s a saying that there is no off-season when it comes to dynasty fantasy baseball, so I’m back after a seven-month hiatus with Pitcher List’s Way Early Top 150 Dynasty Bats for 2018.
I’ve ranked players based on their prior performances, youth, future potential, position scarcity, and team composition (the talent around the player). I’m also more bullish on prospects this year as there are some very impressive young men coming out of the minors such as Ronald Acuna, Eloy Jimenez, Gleybar Torres, Victor Robles, and Vlad Guerrero Jr. I would not be surprised in three or more of these guys became all-stars.
One of the tougher rankings was Cody Bellinger vs. Aaron Judge. I know that Judge is a few years older, but I really like his .422 OBP and intimidating 6’7″ 282lb frame over Bellinger. But make no mistake, both should remain household names for the next 7-10 years if they remain healthy.
Giancarlo Stanton also shoots up the rankings with a season that dynasty owners have been salivating over for years. If owners were wondering what a healthy Stanton could do in a season, use this season as the benchmark. He will be 28 next season and, barring injury, could put up some more jaw-dropping numbers.
Anyway, enough of my yappin’. On to the list! Let’s dissect them together in the comments
