Fantasy Baseball: Top 75 Starting Pitcher Rankings for 2016

New, 17 comments

Ray updates his Top 75 starting pitcher rankings for 2016, with several Indians starters in the top 20

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The fantasy baseball writers here at Fake Teams will begin our annual Consensus Position Rankings the week of January 25th, and I will let you know the schedule once it is finalized, but until then, here are my updated Starting Pitcher rankings for 2016.

I will be updating my position rankings all week. In addition to my rankings, I will be offering mixed league auction values in the "$ Value" column. You may see that some players have auction values higher than the values of players ranked ahead of them. This is the case, as some players will have more "helium" heading into drafts than others, and that helium may push their draft day auction value higher than one would expect.

Keep in mind, that every league is different, so the auction values below may not make sense for your particular league. I am using a 12 team, mixed league as my basis for the values. Those of you in keeper leagues may see the auction values of certain players be higher or lower than what is presented below. These should only be used as a baseline for your auctions.

Feel free to ask questions about the ranking or the auction values in the comments below.

Here are the Top 30 rankings published last week:

Top 30 Catchers for 2016

Top 30 First Baseman for 2016

Top 30 Second Baseman for 2016

Top 30 Shortstops for 2016

Top 30 Third Baseman for 2016

Top 75 Outfielders for 2016
