We are on the cusp of Week 3 of fantasy baseball season, and continuing from my Who Do I Start Week 1 post, and an update from a recent members newsletter, I am working towards a regular weekly fantasy baseball rankings feature.
This is some work but I am making progress. To be the most effective, I feel the end product should be a combination of:
- fantasy baseball rankings landing page, similar to our season-long draft rankings, and
- post with an overview of the week ahead and big picture thoughts about the rankings
Here is the fantasy baseball weekly rankings page. It shows rankings for each hitter position, each player’s upcoming schedule and probable pitcher they are facing, injury status and comments. Once a player’s game is underway, then his stats are shown below the starting pitcher’s name.
Although I feel it is pretty useful resource currently, I am continuing to revise this page as time allows because I am not entirely happy with it. It is a bit slow due to all of the data it is pulling in. That is something to improve. Combined player stats from the past two to three weeks would be a nice addition, to get an idea if a player is hot or cold recently. It is only hitters at this time but need to add pitchers, too.
There is a lot of potential with a feature like this. As I said, this will be an ongoing work-in-progress, but stick with us and we’ll get there. As for the rankings themselves, they are still predominantly based on average draft position prior to the start of the season. There is some movement for injuries and a few additions for players not captured from the ADP.
If anyone would like to contribute their fantasy baseball expertise and time to help keep the rankings updated, then please contact me and we can discuss getting you set up. Others feel free to comment below with additional feedback and rankings discussion.
