Top 200 Consolidated Keeper Rankings

The Fantasy Assembly kicks of the Christmas season today with the 12 days of Christmas.  Each day you will get to unwrap a new article featuring all sorts of fun things.  We could say more or give you a hint, but why ruin the surprise.  Waiting to open your presents is the best part of Christmas (as long as it’s not underwear or socks).   So, without further ado here’s your first present.

On the First day of Christmas The Assembly gave to me:

  1. So only one guy in top 100 has a N/R, Latos. What gives Peter ?

  2. Why is Brett lawrie so low? He had a good second half when he was finally healthy…

    • He actually had a good August and then back to lousy in September with a .243/.304/.311 in 110 PA.
      There’s talent there, but I can’t recommend him right now. I ranked him high in my Top 25 under 25 (done at end of August, starting to think he might be turning things around too) His September swoon makes August seem like the outlier.
      Definitely an intriguing skill set though. One day I hope he proves me wrong, but I don’t see a top 50 guy here.

  3. I’m in a 10team keeper league where we keep 10 players w/o restrictions… I’m sold on my first 8: c. Davis, d wright, hosmer, wil Myers, Oscar Tavares, manny machado, Xander bogaerts, Jose Fernandez… For my last two I have; Carlos Santana, Brett lawrie, a. Rendon, a. Simmons, d. Jennings, d. Brown, z. Greinke, iwakuma, s. Miller, j. Teheran, t. Rosenthal, a. Reed… Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    • Yea, 10 team mixed keeper leagues are stupid and you should probably be in a better league for anyone to care.

      • Nothing wrong with a 10 team mixed league…they can be fun too. Yes, they’re shallow, but a lot of leagues with that set up and we’re happy to answer those questions. Personally, Greinke is my 9th no doubt. I like Santana for that value (ie top 100) too, and it’d be him or Miller for me. Likely Santana.
        The idea of a “better league” has validity, but to me it comes down to the level of competition. You want to be pushed each year to succeed. If leagues are too easy, then find a more competitive one. These aren’t always larger leagues, but more often than not, it turns out that way.

    • Logan,

      Without knowing more about your format, I would lean towards keeping Santana and one of the pitchers, either Grienke, Miller or Teheran.

      If you want a more detailed response, please add some of the specifics for your league format and consider submitting it to the “ask the assembly” page.

    • Santana is so overrated it kills me. Catcher is deep, you can find better options in the draft that won’t cost you anything. Out of those options for the last 2, for me it would come down to Miller/Teheran/Greinke. All 3 play on great teams, so the question is youth. I’d go with Miller/Teheran, the 2 guys with far less mileage.

  4. I’m in a 10 team league keeping 12 players with no restrictions. It is a head to head points league with fairly standard scoring. Which 10 players should be kept?

    Here is my roster:
    C – Sal Perez, Brian McCann
    1B – Freddie Freeman, Matt Adams
    2B – Robinson Cano
    SS – JJ Hardy, Asdrubel Cabrera
    3B – Evan Longoria, Manny Machado
    OF – Justin Upton, Dom Brown, Christian Yelich, Shane Victorino
    DH – Billy Butler
    SP – David Price, Tony Cingrani, Sonny Gray, Zack Wheeler, Taijuan Walker, Justin Masterson, Doug Fister, Martin Perez, Danny Salazar, AJ Burnett, and James Paxton
    RP – Kenley Jansen

    Thanks!

    • Be sure to check out our “Ask the Assembly” feature, where we turn your fantasy questions into a featured post, and we all analyze the information: http://fantasyassembly.com/comments/

      A short answer: McCann, Freeman, Cano, Longo, Machado, Upton, Victorino, Price, Fister, Gray, Salazar, Wheeler would be my top choices. You mix some veterans to keep you competitive with some young upside arms. If you could combine two decent keepers for a better long-term SS, I’d do so.

    • Obvious players you shouldn’t think twice about keeping: Freeman, Cano, Longoria, Machado, Upton, Price. That’s 6, leaving you with 4 more to play with. Here are my last 4 and reasons:

      Matt Adams – Beastly production on a per-at-bat basis. If he gets full or even nearly full playing time, he is going to hit in the middle of the lineup and drive in a lot of runs with an avg that won’t hurt you.

      Dom Brown – Broke out in a big way last year, but it was based on one huge month. Philly is starting to rebuild and go younger with guys like Brown, Ruf, and Asche. Brown will keep up a decent avg with some 25/25 potential. You could always trade him early on to someone who is really buying his 2013 breakout.

      Taijuan Walker – This kid is gonna be a stud, and seattle is actually making moves to attempt to be a decent ballclub. Regardless of wins, his ratios will be worth owning.

      Last spot comes down to Yelich/Butler/one more pitcher. I shy away from Yelich because he plays in a massive stadium on a terrible team with very little lineup support. Butler had a down year but is a good bet for a rebound.

      You have interesting pitching options. The analysis on Cingrani is that he throws his fastball way too much and relies on his deceptive delivery. MLB hitters are smart enough to pick up on that before long. Salazar would be my pick if we had any assurances of playing time. He’ll likely be on an innings limit. I find Wheeler to be overrated – his WHIP is too high from too many walks and the Mets don’t exactly have a strong team to support many wins. I also find that pitching is generally much easier to find on the waiver wire than hitting, so in the end I would go with Butler.

  5. This are only 100 players on your 200 player list…

  6. Great list. Totally agree with Tommy on Freddie Freeman at #7. A huge season looms…

    • Thanks Chris! I don’t have him nearly as high on the 2014 only list, but I think he deserves the nod over his older CI counterparts in any league looking long term. Keep in mind though, he is going to have to hit more HRs eventually to earn this ranking.

  7. Kevin has Brian Wilson #86. Kevin can be ignored.

    • Hi, Jackson,

      Actually, I have JJ Hardy listed as my #86 player. Yet the consolidated table says that I didn’t list Hardy at all, which is incorrect. Not sure where the Wilson ranking came from — might have been an error in creating the table. We’ll get it updated soon.

      • I’ve made the correction and sorry about that Jackson, nice catch. It’s not Kevin’s fault, just human error which is bound to happen when manually typing in several thousand players along with their ranks on multiple rankings for 6 different people.

      • Kevin – I think you were counting on Brian Wilson completing his follow-up to “Smile”. :)

  8. How many years is this rankings looking out?
