Top 200 Fantasy Prospects, September 2019

Earlier this month at The Dynasty Guru, I examined infield and outfield prospects with increasing and decreasing fantasy value. Unfortunately, I was unable to complete the pitching prospect update this month. However, these rankings will indicate movement among pitching prospects. With both the minor and major league regular seasons in the books, this is the final Top 200 Fantasy Prospects of the 2019 season. Stay tuned for the 2019/2020 off-season schedule!

Fantasy value is ever-changing. Like the stock market, there are stable assets and volatile, high-risk / high-reward assets. When it comes to prospects, value swings are common and often drastic, and the astute fantasy owner must quickly adapt. Since August, there is plenty of movement in the Top 200.
