2016 Ottoneu FGpts Rankings – Third Base

Below is the Third Base installment of our 2016 Ottoneu FGpt rankings.

Previous Rankings: Catcher/First Base

In the context of Ottoneu, perhaps rankings are a misnomer, because you really want to know the dollar value each player is worth. We’ve included this information for our benefit. In all, these rankings should help to give you a spread of four dollar values for each player, as well as a comparison to average prices (post-arbitration, pre-cut deadline) within the Ottoneu FGpts universe. Each player’s Ottoneu eligibility (5GS, 10 appearances) is included as well, though players are ranked at their most valuable position. If you have questions on a specific ranking, or a question for a specific ranker, feel free to let us know in the comments.

Consider this your very early, subject to change, Ottoneu pricing cheat sheet.

Total Ranked 20 20 18 17

Only players who received a ranking from  at least one of the four of us were included. Players not listed are likely post-auction pick-ups ($1 players). The line between a $1 player and a post-auction pick-up is very small.

Each owner has different biases to certain positions. To help illustrate these we’ve included “Total $” and “Total ranked” at the bottom of the table. We hope this helps you pick apart some different owner strategies/biases.

The (+/-) column may be helpful in determining which players may generally be overrated by your league mates.

Is there a reason Machado is not on this list?

These rankings attempt to rank each player only once, at the position they are most valuable. Since Machado is SS eligible, he’ll be high on the SS list, coming soon.

I’m assuming then that Matt Carpenter is listed as 2b

Yep, that’s right on Carpenter.

I assume, along with Carpenter, Rendon is also listed as 2B?
