Minor League Ball Releases its Top 200 Prospects

The wise and powerful John Sickels released his top 200 prospect list earlier this week and it’s free for your eye balls. Andrew Benintendi claimed the top spot, followed by Yoan Moncada and Dansby Swanson.

It’s great content and it can help inform some of our fantasy decisions, plus provide a “follow” list for those of us in leagues that roster 150 or more prospects. It also serves as a reminder that dynasty prospect rankings are a very different beast than generic prospect rankings. For example, defense gets you on the field, but we don’t care as much about things such as throwing arms in dynasty baseball, do we? No, we do not. Brendan Rodgers (number 17 on Sickels’ list) could be as high as number one on a dynasty prospect list.

Dynasty Battle – Tyus Jones vs. Dejounte Murray

Tom will be battling in favor of Tyus Jones and Alex in favor of Dejounte Murray.

Round 1:

I thought you were going to pick a player that would be harder for me to argue against. Dejounte Murray? The tall “point guard” with an 18 percent assist rate?

My man Tyus Jones has a 39.2% assist rate! 3-9 point 2, bro. That would be higher than CP3’s career high of 38% in 2010-2011.

Tom 1. Alex 0.

Digging for Diamonds – Chris McCullough and Yogi Ferrell

Chris McCullough, who turned 22 on February 5th, was drafted by the Brooklyn Nets at the end of the first round in 2015 and has not cracked their pathetic rotation, so I understand if anyone is skeptical about his fantasy upside. However, right now he will cost you almost nothing besides a roster spot and he has the ability to be a standout in multiple categories.

In a small sample in 2015, McCullough stole or blocked the ball on almost 7% of possessions. Nerlens Noel is the standard bearer in that regard, registering a steal or block on 7.2% of possessions in 2015-2016. For reference, Draymond Green’s combined rate was 5.2%. In other words, even with significant regression in those categories (and there will be regression), all McCullough needs to do to turn a profit on your investment is get on the court.

So can McCullough develop the rest of his game enough to the point that he’s earning the playing time necessary for him to become a start-worthy fantasy contributor?

Digging for Diamonds – Juan Hernangomez and Thon Maker

In recent months I’ve examined hoops prospects I find interesting that may be worth acquiring or picking up on the waiver wire, depending on the size of your league. In yet another International Men of Mystery version of Digging for Diamonds, I’ll focus on 2016 1st round picks, Juan Hernangomez and Thon Maker.

Let me state off the top – for first round picks, we have very limited information on these two. Information is good – it’s what allowed some to recognize Nikola Jokic as bonafied with confidence where others may have been skeptical. With a larger data set to work with, dynasty owners may have known to avoid someone like bust-in-the-making, Dante Exuum, who had played in very few professional games when the Utah Jazz selected him in the lottery back in 2014.
