Elite Player Rankings

New, 8 comments

Below is a list of players ranked by their inclusion in the Top 20 of each of the five hitting categories for traditional fantasy baseball - AVG, HR, RBI, R, and SB. There are only 61 players who qualified based on their 2006 production.

This list has a much better intuitive feel for the way fantasy players are conventionally valued, and it looks, other than the sorting which I did by # of Top 20 ranks, much closer to what fantasy players bring with them into their drafts - either snake or auction.

Personally, I have never seen player values presented in this manner. This presentation is younger than the hours in a season of "24" so comments are wanted.
