Major League Mayhem’s 2017 Fantasy Rankings: 1-10

Some of our Major League Mayhem writers, Austin Perodeau (AP), Michael Ferro (MF), Connor Kurcon (CK), Jason Gold (JG), and Rhys White (RW) have compiled a list of the top 50 players in fantasy for 2017. I’m here to bring you the much anticipated 21-30 list. We’ve used our own (biased) opinions and the information available to us from numerous sources to put together these rankings, so feel free to disagree with us in the comments and explain why every one of our picks is wrong.

1 Mike Trout – No reasoning needed. It’s Mike Trout. If you’re thinking of getting cute and drafting someone else, don’t. He’s the best there is. -CK

2 Mookie Betts - The next two are essentially interchangeable depending on whether you value extra power over some speed. We went for Mookie here because speed has become a more difficult commodity to acquire in fantasy and the prospect of multiple 20/20 or even 30/30 seasons is just too hard to pass up. -JG

3 Kris Bryant - After breaking 100 RBIs and almost 40 homers, Bryant should be a top pick in any fantasy league. He is serviceable on defense, but his offense is what carries him. Look for Bryant to surpass his sophomore season and make himself a top fantasy pick for years to come. -MF

4 Nolan Arenado - In 2016, put his second consecutive seasons of at least .285/95/40/130/2. He is one of the top third basemen in the league and only 25 years old. His only downside is his lack of SB’s with only 8 in his career so far. Also he hits in the launching pad known as Coors which is always a benefit in Fantasy Baseball. Don’t overthink this, he is a monster. -AP

5 Paul Goldschmidt - By far the best first baseman in fantasy, not only does he provide the prototypical power you want from your 1st base but he will provide you elite level steals.Goldschmidt is a fantasy superstar, provides the ideal 5 category production and put up an insane .411 OBP. Expect Goldschmidt to continue to put up over 20 homers and over 15 steal with great averages. -RW

6 Jose Altuve – As batting average and stolen bases become more and more rare, Altuve is THE guy who can bring you both with certainty. I’m not buying into 20+ home runs again, (his HR/FB was 57% higher than his previous career high), but 12-15 is plenty enough. -CK

7 Clayton Kershaw - The best pitcher in real life and in fantasy without question. As with Mike Trout above, if you’re thinking of getting cute and drafting another pitcher first, just walk away and come back when you’re feeling more reasonable. -JG

8 Manny Machado - Manny excels in every aspect of the game except for stealing. That’s negligible as he makes up for it with everything else. Manny is a great first round pick and can hold down any fantasy team. If his power stays consistent, that won’t change anytime soon. -MF

9 Bryce Harper - His last two years have been a roller coaster. He had a generational year in 2015 just to regress across most major categories in 2016. However, he did jump from 6 stolen bases to 21 last year. His projections for 2017 are around .280/90/30/90/15 which gives  you a five category superstar who has already shown the ability to shatter these projections. -AP

10 Josh Donaldson - Donaldson unfortunately lives in a world where Kris Bryant and Nolan Arenado  play baseball, if they didn’t he would be far and away the best 3rd basemen in The Bigs. He put up 33 homers to go along with a .284/.404/.549. Donaldson plays in a very hitter-friendly ballpark in Toronto and gets to play in the AL East that is extremely hitter-friendly. The offence he plays in should take a slight downturn due to Edwin Encarnacion departing to play with Cleveland, but donaldson will still be up to put his numbers and provide at least a  sneaky 5 steals a season. -RW

Michael Ferro
Michael was born and raised in South Carolina. He loves Pirates baseball and fishing.
