Updated Top 200 Rankings for 2013

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Ray Guilfoyle has updated his Top 200 Rankings to reflect some injuries to Carl Crawford and Curtis Granderson, and has added David Murphy to his rankings.

I have made some changes to my Top 200 Rankings for 2013, and here is a summary of the changes made, and my reasons why:

1. Carl Crawford, LAD

I moved Crawford down from 80 to 113 due to his recent setback in his rehab from Tommy John surgery.

2. Curtis Granderson, NYY

I moved Granderson down from 27 to 41 due to his recent broken forearm injury. He should be back in May, and assuming he has no setbacks, he should still hit close to 30 home runs and steal 20 bases.

3. David Murphy, TEX

Murphy was not included in my initial Top 200 Rankings, but he was an oversight, and I have placed him at spot 152, as I think he can have a breakout year in the revamped Rangers lineup.

4, Alex Gordon, KC

I moved Gordon up around 20 spots from 78 to 59. I think we see him hit .290-.300 with close to 20 HRs, 100 runs, 75-80 RBI and around 15 stolen bases, or close to his 2011 production.

5. Ryan Howard, PHI

I moved Howard up from 92 to 78, after a conversation I had with a fantasy owner in one of my NL-only leagues last Friday. He convinced me that despite Howard's low batting average, he should be good for 30+ HRs and 100+ RBI in the Phillies lineup this season.

6. David Ortiz, BOS

I realized Ortiz was ranked too low at 162, so I moved him up quite a bit to 114. This ranking assumes Ortiz will be healthy all season, as I think he can put up 25+ HRs, 90+ RBI and a .280+ batting average for fantasy owners in 2013.

With that said, here are my updated Top 200 Rankings for 2013:
