The offseason can be a lonely time for the average baseball fan, but for the dynasty league player, it’s different. The offseason is the time to take a look at the player pool and make adjustments to your roster or find players to target in a trade. Keep in mind that this list, and really any list, is a snapshot in time. When I refresh my rankings around midseason this year, they could be drastically different. New players will emerge, while others will fall to the wayside.
A lot of thought and analysis went into this list. Tools vs. proximity is the biggest battle any list-maker faces. Obviously, the players’ talent comes into account, but I also factor in how close they are to helping my team. For example, take Jesus Luzardo versus Casey Mize. Both battled injuries last year, but Mize will start 2020 in Triple-A while Luzardo should start the season in the A’s rotation and can help me in my quest for the title this year.
