Fantasy Baseball rankings season begins. Below is my current Top 50 for a 2020 single season format, with traditional roto rules (Batting Average). I definitely skew towards guys with the ability to steal bases, so keep that in mind. Hopefully you can find some useful nuggets on the player notes. Feel free to drop a comment or follow me on twitter @bieryplox33

1Ronald AcunaATLOFFloor looks to be 34+ & 30 SB’s if healthy, too appealing to pass at #1 for me
2Mike TroutLAAOF/DHTrout has the safest floor & quite possibly the highest ceiling if he can steal 20+
3Christian YelichMILOFOnly concerns have been injury related, he avg’d 40 HR/26 SB in 18-19, incredible
4Cody BellingerLAD1B/OFPlate discipline, age, team context all positives, skills are off the charts
5Mookie BettsBOSOFEven ‘Bad Betts’ is great, top 15 in roto despite muted SB’s & lesser BA, buy again
6Francisco LindorCLESSLindor has no weaknesses & is improving, could be clear cut #4 based on HR/SB
7Trevor StoryCOLSS#’s aren’t far off of Arenado.. + 20 SB’s! Improved BB rate and Coors provide floor
8Trea TurnerWASSSTT has improved the hitting, only issue is health, could be clear 50+ SB foundation
9Gerrit ColeHOUSPClear Cut SP1 regardless of landing spot, 39% K Rate/6% BB, superstar talent
10Nolan ArenadoCOL3BDeath, Taxes & Arenado, .953 OPS since 2017
11Alex BregmanHOUSS/3BPlate discipline growth shows insane floor, team provides ungodly stats, no bags
12Jose RamirezCLE3BPwr-Spd Star, 18+19 avg to 30 HR/30 SB, floor appears to be 25/25 when healthy
13Justin VerlanderHOUSPAvg szn since 17 (3 yrs): 211 IP, 264 K’s, 2.8 ERA, .95 WHIP.. He should do it again
14Jacob deGromNYMSPTeam context hurts win totals but skills support hint that deGrom could be SP1
15Max ScherzerWASSPRegardless of back issues, still worthy of 1st rnd.. His WHIP is abv 1 for 1st time since 14
16Walker BuehlerLADSP0 workload concerns for Buehler in 2020, 29% K rate & 4% BB rate, superstar in waiting
17Freddie FreemanATL1BMr. Consistent’s pwr has improved, FF provides big advantage at 1B in an incredible lineup
18Anthony RendonWAS3BShould be ranked higher, contact rate/plate discipline assure floor, 2020 park could affect cost
19Juan SotoWASOFBarry Bonds comps are wild & hyperbolic but Soto is as safe as it gets & could post a .300/.420/.550
20Starling MartePITOFPwr-Speed-OBP Monster, HR pop is developing in 30s, speed still in elite, easy 25-25 foundation
21Adalberto MondesiKCSSMondesi was pacing to 15 HR/55 SB szn but recurring shoulder issue lurks, check back in Spring
22Xander BogaertsBOSSSXB set career highs everywhere, (besides his SB’s, which could come back).. Very advanced bat
23Javier BaezCHC2B/SS/3BDespite a low SB mark in 19, Baez helped his owners w/ the pwr & consistent #s, bet on Javy again
24Aaron JudgeNYYOFInjury bug continues to be Judge’s only drawback, skills are still borderline elite, ~1st rnd OBP guy
25Yordan AlvarezHOUOF/DHDid a full season worth of round 6 #s in 80+ games, superstar player if the contact improves
26Rafael DeversBOS3B2 crzy yrs avg out to .280 BA, 25 HR, 13 SBs, 90+ Runs/RBI, floor is based on contact rate + park/lineup
27Charlie BlackmonCOLOFEven an aging CB continues to pile up runs/HR/BA like crazy in Coors, keep investing
28Fernando Tatis Jr.SDSSPosted a full line in a half yr (22-16 HR/SB) but will he stay healthy & make enough contact?
29Bryce HarperPHIOFBoringly reliable but expensive, perhaps the cost drops in 2020, BA woes and K rate issues worry me
30J.D. Martinez?OF/DHWhen locked in is one of the best bats of the decade
31Gleyber TorresNYY2B/SSPark boosted power and Gleyber improved his Contact/K Rate, buy the 23 yr old in 2020
32Jose AltuveHOU2BFew SBs but buy the best 2B in the game, could do 300 BA/35 HR/110/110. Contact Machine
33Shane BieberCLESPLudicrous K:BB, WHIP and team/division context..2nd round isn’t too early for Bieber
34Chris SaleBOSSPIncredible K total in a poor year, one of the few guys who can be the SP1. Will rise if fully healthy
35Kris BryantCHC3B/OFFloor is locked in with excellent OBP & power punch, injury concerns will lower cost but he’s worth it
36Anthony RizzoCHC1BElite 1B is shallow & Rizzo is unbelievably consistent, does he have another level?
37George SpringerHOUOF/DHSomewhat low szn long #s will hide what was a star season from Springer, who hit a new level
38Manny MachadoSDSS/3B19 #s are pedestrian but you are buying the consistency of Machado, Camden did him favors tho
39Whit MerrifieldKC2B/OFNo, Whit won’t deliver lots of SB’s but he will provide heaps of runs, BA & some HR. Big Time 2B
40Pete AlonsoNYM1BA throwback player who’s pwr is absolutely forreal, he should continue to hit 44+ HR
41Vladimir Guerrero Jr.TOR3B/DHVlad’s pedigree & innate skills are the reason for this rank, could tap into .300 BA/30+ HR
42Josh BellPIT1BSuper plate skills, new found pwr & heart of the order are the pluses for Bell..Lock for 30 HR
43Eugenio SuarezCIN3BSteady Eddie who’s hitting another gear, cut GB rate and pwr exploded, very bankable guy
44Joey GalloTEX1B/OFIn a power era where guys will fluctuate, Gallo remains undoubtedly elite, BA growth is possible
45Stephen StrasburgWASSPPlayoff tax will drive up this price, Stras is a good balance of upside and reliability
46Clayton KershawLADSPKershaw’s decline has remained gradual and smooth… He should remain an ace in 2020
47Jonathan VillarBAL2B/SSVillar has the tools & setup to be a 1st rounder, but inconsistent track record & could lose his role
48Luis CastilloCINSPCastillo had a ridiculously low contact % to pair w his electric K %, should be primed to do it again
49Mike ClevingerCLESPOne of the best arms in the game on a per game basis for 19, perfect situation w/ CLE in AL Central
50Blake SnellTBSPUpside to legitimately be a Top 5 SP, but will Tampa let him reach 200 innings?
