2014 Points Leagues: Top 300 Overall

USA TODAY Sports

The top-300 overall players in head-to-head points leagues are revealed.

On Monday and Tuesday, I published my top-200 hitters and top-125 pitchers, respectively, in head-to-head points leagues. Today, I'll mash it all up and reveal my top-300 players overall. I hope this final list will give you an idea of how to value hitters vs. pitchers on draft day. The best advice I can give you is, "When in doubt, go with the hitter." As I have previously mentioned, streaming starting pitchers is a viable option in points leagues and one I highly advice using -- just make sure your league has a weekly transactions' limit in place to prevent angry owners.

I used the following scoring settings in my rankings below:

Batting
  • 1 point per total base
  • 1 point per run
  • 1 point per RBI
  • 1 point per walk
  • 1 point per stolen base
  • -1 point per strikeout
Pitching
  • 5 points per win
  • 5 points per save
  • 3 points per inning pitched
  • 1 point per strikeout
  • -1 point per hit
  • -1 point per walk
  • -2 points per earned run
  • -5 points per loss

Here are my top-300 overall players in points leagues for 2014:
