From the 21st of January to the 20th of February, the writers at TDG will be taking you through our rankings position-by-position. As I mentioned in the primer, this year we’re doing things a little differently. Instead of having my personal rankings up on this site, like last year, these rankings for 2014 are of the consensus variety and being brought to you by all of the TDG staff. Everyone put a lot of work into this project, so we hope you enjoy the end result. And if you are looking for my personal dynasty league rankings, you can find them this off-season at Baseball Prospectus.
So we hope you enjoy the rankings package that we’ve put together here. And if you do, I hope that you will make a donation to show appreciation for the content you’ve seen here at the Dynasty Guru. You can do that through this link, or by clicking the “Donate” button on the top-right corner of the homepage. All donations are truly appreciated.
And now the remaining 30 of the Top 50 Dynasty League Shortstops, led off by an oldie, but still a goodie (at least for now):
21) Jimmy Rollins, Philadelphia Phillies (Age: 35, Previous Rank: 9)
Time to line up a replacement for this longtime fantasy stalwart in dynasty leagues, but don’t count him out just yet. He may be old but he still has a solid grip on the everyday SS job in Philly. He can be expected to put up usable, if not elite, fantasy numbers in 2014. I would expect a decent rebound over his down 2013 numbers, but older players are no sure bet to stay healthy. Tends to be a slow starter most seasons, heating up as the weather heats up. Keep an eye on him and snap him up for a bargain price in late May.
