We listen to a lot of baseball podcasts

Dynasty 500 with 2020 FYPD

These are my top 500 ranked players for dynasty leagues. I’ve also added a column for my overall prospect rank where applicable, so you can use this to draft both dynasty and prospect-only drafts. It includes the players drafted in the June 2020 First-Year Player Draft (FYPD) like Spencer Torkelson (Overall Rank 79, Prospect Rank 7), Austin Martin (Overall Rank 132, Prospect Rank 18), Nick Gonzales (Overall Rank 149, Prospect Rank 25), and Asa Lacy (Overall Rank 178 Prospect Rank 37).

A few notes to give you context on the rankings:

1. This assumes traditional 5×5 roto dynasty leagues. You’ll need to make adjustments for OBP leagues, QS leagues, etc.

2. Do not use this – or any dynasty list for that matter – as a straight draft list. The depth of your league, the drafting tendencies of your leaguemates, and other factors will influence your draft.

3. My general dynasty approach (that informed these rankings) is to play for the next three years when you draft. Going for broke and drafting as if you’re in a redraft league in the first year of a dynasty league is dangerous. On the flipside, drafting all prospects and ignoring proven MLB players in their prime is a recipe for disaster.

4. The dynasty community is ageist. Yes, you want younger players who can contribute to your team for a long period of time. But productive players in their 30s have value too. You will see me ranking 28-31 year olds higher here than many other dynasty lists.

5. I probably don’t like pitchers – especially pitching prospects – as much as you do. Early on in dynasty drafts, I tend to stack young bats. I’ll get pitching later. Established aces are arguably the most valuable commodity in redraft fantasy leagues, but how many top fantasy arms in 2020 do you have confidence in for the next three years?

6. The closer is the most unpredictable “position” in fantasy baseball. They are considerably lower on this list than in a redraft league. You are betting on their long-term consistency at your own risk.
