Top 600 Dynasty League Players, November 2019

The end of the 2019 MLB season marks the beginning of an active offseason for most fantasy leagues, and the beginning of rankings season. Already, owners likely are re-assessing their rosters, exploring potential trades, or preparing for prospect drafts. To help prepare fantasy owners for the hot stove, The Dynasty Guru will begin its rankings push early this year! As such, it is an ideal time to revisit the Top 600 list for dynasty league players.

Normally, The Dynasty Guru publishes its updated Top 500 in early-March, following trades and free agent acquisitions. This year, we are providing a publicly-available preview of the updated top 50 immediately following the World Series. Further, you can obtain access to the entire updated Top 600 with a small donation.

A minimum donation of $10 grants you access to a downloadable spreadsheet of TDG’s 2020 Dynasty Baseball Rankings! Once your donation successfully processes, you will receive an email with a link to the rankings.

The Top 600 Dynasty League Players represents the opinion of this writer (with some gentle nudges from Bret Sayre). Consequently, the rankings are consistent with an updated version of the Top 600 Dynasty League Players, published during the All-Star break, and the Top 200 Fantasy Prospects, published in early October. In fact, you can sort by column in the table below for the updated top 200 fantasy prospects. Finally, the following rankings account for a 16-team league with a standard, 5-by-5 scoring format, but also note changes in value for on-base percentage (OBP) formats.

With that said, and without further ado, please enjoy responsibly!

    Hello I made a donation and downloaded what I thought was the top 600. The link must be wrong because the top 250 football rankings downloaded to Google sheets. Please fix. Thank you.

      The Google Sheet for the old rankings go straight to the Top 250 football rankings. The updated rankings are available in a separate link that includes a new Google Sheet. If you are still having issues accessing, you can reach out to dynastyguru@gmail.com.

    Harper? Lmao! Jk. A little high for Baez and Harper who led the league in K’s at the All Star break if I’m not mistaken. Don’t quote me. You guys know a lot more than. Probably just a sour Nats fan! Good job.

      Harper was 24th in the MLB in strikeouts after the All-Star break. Still, his strikeout and swinging strike rates have both concerningly increased over each of the past 4 years. With that said, Harper still has massive power and some speed. Plus, he continues to draw tons of walks and receives a sizable boost in OBP formats. Further, he makes enough hard contact to mitigate his reduced contact rates. Finally, he is still just 27 years old. While Harper is no longer a top-10 dynasty asset, he still carries a ton of value.

    Er, think we’ll skip paying for a list, like every other list, that a second year player could assemble. Perhaps these scribes should pay us – players in leagues with sophisticated, multi-year owners, in which facile “analyses” such as what’s found here, land your team in tenth.

    • November 1, 2019 at 9:22 am — Reply

      I am sorry you feel that way, but a lot of time and effort went into constructing this list, with further input and review from Bret Sayre.

      I personally have extensive experience in dynasty leagues of all types and a ton of success. This past year, I won 4 of 6 dynasty leagues (one in which I lost, I inherited a terrible team and began a rebuild; and the other one, I was the regular season champion, but lost in the H2H playoffs). I also finished 22nd overall (out of 315) in TGFBI (industry redraft), after a terrible final two weeks which saw me drop 16 spots.

      If you do not enjoy and find lists useful, then certainly do not donate to access. However, many owners do find lists useful in draft and off-season preparation. While this article obviously does not include pure analysis, nearly every other article on TDG does, including my own. The analysis in those articles, and far more, go into constructing a list such as this. If I were to include analysis of every player in a ranking of 600, it would be exhaustive and impossibly time-consuming. With that said, TDG does, in fact, include an analysis of every player beginning in January. So stay tuned!

    Well, 24th still isn’t far down the line for someone that high on your list. If there was one team that would still put him at the highest.
    Your league may be a lot different than the one I was in but, your age, hard contact, and a walk got you nothing. Many leagues are different though. Those stats may just be for comparison but not necessarily any good, in my opinion, for fantasy.
    By the way do you know an attorney named Trey Aycock

    If you have Trout is #2 and it’s not the year 1999 (Barry steroid Bonds) then you entire list loses all credibility.

    • November 2, 2019 at 10:46 am — Reply

      It is a new era. For what it is worth, Trout is still #1 for me in OBP (though, Soto is a very close #2).

    Why the change? Your rankings were never “fee for service” before?

      The November update, like last year, requires a donation for full access. The March update will be publicly available.
