2007 Catcher Rankings

New, 13 comments

This morning begins the Fake Teams rankings by position. I used a system based on the player's 2006 performance and the relevent fantasy categories - AVG/HR/RBI/R/SB for 5x5 and AVG/HR/RBI/SB for 4x4. This assumes that last year's numbers are indicative of what will occur this year, and, in general, the rankings appear to pass the sniff test.

There are players that do not appear to be as highly ranked as one would think they should be i.e Jason Varitek. This will occur if the player in question had a poor year or hardly played. I took the liberty of adding Colorado and Arizona rookies Chris Iannetta and Miguel Montero to the lists. Both are ranked very conservatively.
