How To Use Fantasy MLB Rankings 2022

Know your format and scoring system

Our rankings are based on a rotisserie format, so you’ll need to tweak your ranks and approaches depending on the league style.

Offense will go early

In some early mocks and expert drafts so far, it’s unusual to see more than two pitchers go off the board in the first round. In 2023 the depth of top-quality starting pitching seems to be deeper than ever.

Bet on 2023 MLB Futures

Looking to place a bet on top MLB Futures? Check out the latest odds by navigating the chart below.

Simply select the wager (AL/NL MVP for example) and the  sportsbook:

Be aware of position scarcity

You should not use positional scarcity as a firm guidepost, as it’s often better to simply take the best player available. But as your draft progresses, you’ll have to address weaker positions such as third base.

Be aggressive

High-stakes players and industry experts will frequently draft a sleeper or value play ahead of their Average Draft Positions, so don’t be afraid to reach for a player if you’re particularly bullish on him.

Make a plan for closers and catchers

If you’re not going to take a top closer or catcher, then you will have to be prepared to monitor the waiver wire for relievers or go for riskier catchers. These are two unique positions that create much discussion among fantasy analysts, and you will have to decide on a preferred route.

Every draft is unique

Rankings and ADPs serve as a basis for what you may be preparing for, but no two drafts are ever the same.

Go your own way

You can use these rankings as a template, but you should have preferences as to what players you want to move up and down your draft board.

Drafting is just the beginning

Keep in mind that we will be working the waiver wire frequently throughout the season to address holes and replace injured players. The roster you finish with will likely look considerably different than the one you started with.

Draft with confidence

If you are well-prepared and don’t overanalyze takes on players, everything should go smoothly. No one has a perfect roster after the draft, especially in 15-team leagues.
