There were some movers and shakers in the Top 10 this go around. J.D. moved up a spot, but he wasn’t the big mover. Bryce Harper signing in Philadelphia moved him up to 5th. Christian Yelich moved down to 6 as I’ve been saying all spring that he’s very very good but repeating that season is not gonna happen.
When it comes to 11-20 there are a lot of names that some will disagree with. I have Tommy Pham higher than most. And then there is Victor Robles, my man coming in at 17. I have noticed in recent months Robles’ ADP continues to rise…just remember I was there first. Charlie Blackmon all the way down at 18 will catch a lot of flack, but I would take all those other outfielders ahead of him without blinking.
21-30 stayed pretty quiet at the top with Michael Conforto being one of my favorites up there. As you go down this range with have Andrew McCutchen and Ryan Braun entering this area of the ranks. McCutchen may be hitting near the top of an absolutely loaded Phillies lineup and will finally be hitting in a hitters ballpark. Braun has some of the most eye popping stat cast numbers you can see and should have some really serious positive regression coming. On BwB EP 152, DVR has some solid things to say about Braun.
31-40 can be shuffled around a ton of ways as there are a lot of similar type players here. I would really focus on the likes of Michael Brantley, Nomar Mazara, Max Kepler (welcome to the ranks) and Brandon Nimmo. That back end of Mazara, Kepler and Nimmo has me oh so excited this season. Some may ask about Gallo down here and that’s because I just don’t want that BA risk. If he hits .240 then that changes or make sure you have a serious draft strategy to help his low BA.
The final 10, 41-50, has a handful of movers and some new names. Stephen Piscotty moves up and he is an insane value in drafts right now, 25+ home run season coming up. Byron Buxton is moving up as things are looking like they may be for real with the added muscle…..let’s hope so at least. Lastly welcome to the rankings Domingo Santana. Mini Nelson Cruz could be in for a huge power season with the Mariners.
The outfield position is deep as always, but also has a ton of guys I want nothing to do with. After 50 there are some really nice values and I’d recommend listening to the OF previews of BwB. If you have any other questions feel free to reach out to me on Twitter @bdentrek.
