Please read the bullet points before you check out the ranking.

  • This is the ranking solely based on Steamer's remainder of the season projection.
  • Projected values are set to match Yahoo! standard auction draft price.
  • The ranking uses Yahoo!'s position eligibility, and LF, CF, and RF are grouped separately.
  • Position scarcity is factored in.
  • The ranking is computer generated, and it include ZERO percent of my person opinion (I didn't put Josh Donaldson at 22).
  • This is not an absolute ranking by any means. Use this is as a comparison tool.
  • The comments are probably more valuable than rankings itself.
  • Check out the Week 6 Ranking here.
  • All stats and projections are up to date as of 5/14/2016

5 straight games of double digit Ks.

Bryce Harper

CF,RF

$ 46

He caught up to Goldy and now leading BB and OBP in ML. Probably not the best news for his owners. His fantasy performance now depends more on Zimmmerman's ability to protect him.

Starling Marte

$ 44

His little behind in his power numbers, but 11 SB and .329 are just too good.

It makes sense that he is the number one first baseman.

Buster Posey

He is struggling now, but who would you rather have as your catcher? He is still the best option in his position by far.

Paul Goldschmidt

$ 44

Harper and Goldy shares the same sorrow. No one to protect him, and he just keeps walking.

Carlos Correa

$ 42

-$ 2

He is not a good defensive SS, but the sophomore's bat is as good as advertised.

11

Nolan Arenado

3B

$ 42

+$ 3

He only hit 1 HR in his last 5 home games, which is very disappointing for his standard.

12

1

Kris Bryant

3B,LF,RF

$ 39

+$ 1

He stole his first base of the year. If anybody expected him to make a huge leap for his 2nd year, it hasn't happened yet, but he is still an elite 3B regardless.

13

4

Max Scherzer

SP

$ 39

+$ 3

Justin Upton and his friends gave him a perfect homecoming present. Any linger worries about the Odd-eyed pitcher can be dumped out officially.

14

-3

Mookie Betts

CF,RF

$ 38

-$ 2

He is not as hot as his other friends of Fenway, but he hit 2 HR last week and his 30 R is the third in the league.

15

3

Ryan Braun

LF,RF

$ 37

+$ 2

He hit .409 in last 7 days to bring his overall BA up to .367. The unbelievable run by the 32-year-old former MVP continues.

16

=

Andrew McCutchen

CF

$ 36

+$ 1

2 HR and .429 in last 7 days. His BA is back up to .261. The Captain is back.

17

2

Xander Bogaerts

SS

$ 36

+$ 1

He is leading the hot hitting Red Sox lineup with 2 HR and .441 in last 7 days. His slash is up to .340 .389 .490. One of the best SSs in the league both in real and fake games.

18

-3

Miguel Cabrera

1B

$ 35

-$ 1

He isn't playing terribly, but he is not the same Miggy we have known. It's probably not the strangest thing if he starts to fade slowly at age 33.

19

-5

Giancarlo Stanton

RF

$ 34

-$ 2

He went 1 for 10 in a single day (DH against the Nationals), and his BA is back down to .238. BA is not why his owners drafted him anyway.

20

1

Robinson Cano

2B

$ 32

-$ 1

He leads the league in RBI. The Mariners $240M investment looks pretty safe.

21

-1

Chris Sale

SP

$ 31

8 Wins in 8 games. The southpaw hasn't won more than 13 games since 2013 with the same White Sox.

22

=

Josh Donaldson

3B

$ 31

+$ 1

He and all the Blue Jays got little cold lately, (.214 in last 7 days), but he already has 3 steals on the year, and we know he can do everything else pretty well.

23

=

Charlie Blackmon

LF,CF

$ 31

All he needed was few games at his home sweet home, and now he is hitting .302.

24

1

Christian Yelich

LF,CF

$ 29

He only managed to hit .208 in last 7 days, but he came up with 1 HR 1 SB. He has 5 HRs on the year, and if he can continue hitting pops, he is finally a true elite OF.

25

1

Madison Bumgarner

SP

$ 29

Just too solid. He is already no longer exciting at age 26, but it's only because of his supreme consistency.

26

1

Francisco Lindor

SS

$ 28

He just picked up two SBs last week. He will find his ways to contribute for his owners.

27

1

Jose Abreu

1B

$ 28

Can't seem to get hot. No HRs in his last 8 games, and only averaging .250 on the year. His BA should be adjusted going forward, but his diminished power is a real issue.

28

5

Jake Arrieta

SP

$ 28

+$ 2

It's a good time to be in Chicago. 7 Wins in 8 games.

29

10

Rougned Odor

2B

$ 28

+$ 3

All the hype built up around him since the pre-season looks legit at this point. The 22-year-old is about to breakout.

30

4

David Price

SP

$ 27

+$ 2

He threw a 12K-gem against the Astros, but his ERA is still 6.00 on the year. We need a few more of those to trust him fully.

31

4

Kenley Jansen

RP

$ 27

+$ 1

He gave up 1 run so far this season.

32

6

Andrew Miller

RP

$ 27

+$ 2

Steamer still thinks he is the main closer of the Yankees, which is obviously not true. He is the best reliever, but he shouldn't be ranked here.

33

-9

Justin Upton

LF

$ 26

-$ 3

His older brother is the better Upton these days.  He leads the league in K by far (59. 2nd is Story's 52).

34

3

Jose Fernandez

SP

$ 26

+$ 1

Still leading the league with his K-rate, and his ERA is heading south.

35

-5

Noah Syndergaard

SP

$ 26

-$ 1

He is still pitching more than fine, but a lot of the early season hype around him has cooled down. Let's face it. He is really good, but not Kershaw-good.

36

-4

Stephen Strasburg

SP

$ 26

-$ 1

His owner probably expected more than giving up 7 runs in last 13.IP, but he still struck out 18 in that same span.

37

-8

Jonathan Lucroy

C,1B

$ 25

-$ 2

2 HR in last 7 days, and now his slash looks perfectly good at .304 .370 .472.

38

-7

Corey Kluber

SP

$ 25

-$ 2

His last two outings were very rough (9 runs in 9.1 IP), but his FIP still looks pretty at 2.95. Of course most of us don't count FIP in our leagues.

39

1

Eric Hosmer

1B

$ 25

+$ 1

Added 2 HR in last 7 games, and he seems like heading into his career best season at age 26.

40

5

Todd Frazier

3B

$ 24

+$ 1

Finally heat up with 4 HR 12 RBI .333 in last 7 days. He will continue to hurt many team's BA, but he is capable to hit more HR than anybody.

41

-5

Carlos Gonzalez

RF

$ 24

-$ 1

He got cold while all his teammates have been enjoying the 6-game home stand. Hitless in his last 4 games, but he still averages .287 on the year.

42

1

Gerardo Parra

LF,CF,RF

$ 23

It would be nicer if Weiss keeps him somewhere higher than 5 in his lineup card. He hit .440 but it only turned into 3 R 3 RBI in last 7 days.

43

-2

Jon Lester

SP

$ 23

-$ 1

It's not fair that he only won 4 while Arrieta won 7.

44

13

Adam Jones

CF

$ 23

+$ 3

He finally broke out of his slump and hit 4 HR with .462 in last 7 days. We knew this was coming.

45

-3

Trevor Story

SS

$ 23

-$ 1

He and Justin Upton are fighting over the K leader spot, but at least he has been good when he can put the bat on the balls.

46

7

Chris Davis

1B,RF

$ 23

+$ 2

He only hit 1 HR but somehow averaged .500 last week.

47

1

Yoenis Cespedes

LF,CF

$ 22

His 26.8% HR/FB has a little bit of room for regression, but the powerful Cuban's high flying performance in NYC looks real from every angle.

48

2

Jason Heyward

CF,RF

$ 22

Still no HR on the year.

49

2

George Springer

CF,RF

$ 22

2 HR and 8 RBI in last 2 games. We would like to see little more plate discipline, but he is still pretty good as it is.

50

6

David Ortiz

1B

$ 22

+$ 1

10 HR and .320 at age 40? He probably can play 5 more years if he wants to.

51

7

Daniel Murphy

1B,2B,3B

$ 22

+$ 2

He hit .406 in last 7 days, but it didn't really help to raise his .403 season BA.

52

-5

Zack Greinke

SP

$ 21

-$ 1

His most recent outing against SF was a rough one, and those are becoming more and more common these days.

53

2

Joey Votto

1B

$ 21

Still looking for a hot streak. Still cold with .182 BA in last week.

54

-10

Ian Kinsler

2B

$ 21

-$ 2

He is consistently hitting and running at age 33. It's hard to find any flaw in his game.

55

-1

Johnny Cueto

SP

$ 21

Looks like the Giants got lucky by getting outbid on Greinke. Cueto looks like a real deal at great discount, in both real and fake games.

56

-7

J.T. Realmuto

C

$ 21

-$ 2

He has cooled down and no longer a lead off, but no catcher has more 5-cat upside than this guy.

57

3

Hanley Ramirez

1B,LF

$ 21

+$ 1

He has been on tear just like everyone else in his lineup. 4 SB is the most welcoming sign of all.

58

21

Wil Myers

1B,CF

$ 20

+$ 4

He had 8 HR and 5 SB in 60 games last season, and he is one short on each category in 38 games with improved BA this year. The former top prospect could be the best keeper play this year.

59

-13

J.D. Martinez

RF

$ 20

-$ 2

His BA is keep getting lower, and now it has reached .230, but he added 2 HRs in last 7 days. Once his power is back on track, everything will be fine going forward.

60

-1

Craig Kimbrel

RP

$ 20

+$ 1

The Red Sox has been blowing out the opponent too much lately that the dominant closer hasn't been needed for last two weeks. He needs his teammates to take it little easy.

61

=

Salvador Perez

C

$ 20

+$ 1

He is hitting disappointing .236, but it came with decent 5 HR.

62

-10

Yasiel Puig

RF

$ 20

-$ 1

He looks like the same guy from last year, which isn't a good thing. He is still fun to watch (on defense), but the 25-year-old former Phenom might have peaked too early.

63

9

Dellin Betances

RP

$ 20

+$ 3

In a perfect world, he should be putting up 0 ERA in every season, but the Yankees Stadium and the defense won't let that happen.

64

4

Adrian Beltre

3B

$ 20

+$ 2

The only unfortunate thing for him this season is that Prince Fielder is hitting behind him.

65

11

Lorenzo Cain

CF

$ 19

+$ 2

Let's not make too much of a big deal out of his 3 HR game at the Yankees Stadium. All his numbers are still way down from last year, and he has been quiet since then.

66

19

Mark Trumbo

1B,LF,RF

$ 19

+$ 3

He never had more than two consecutive hitless games this season. If anybody is waiting for his cold streak for a buy-low opportunity, he ain't giving one.

67

-2

Freddie Freeman

1B

$ 19

He has been catching up, and now he is hitting healthy .282 with 6 HR. He may lack any upside, but he is a solid 1B barring from injuries.

68

9

Matt Carpenter

2B,3B

$ 19

+$ 2

His improved power is finally showing up and he managed to add 3 HR last week. His last year's power outbreak looks legit.

69

-7

Prince Fielder

1B

$ 18

-$ 1

Maybe it's a good time to take him out of the cleanup spot.

70

16

Matt Harvey

SP

$ 18

+$ 2

He isn't making anybody happy, but his K-BB (8.08 K/9 2.56 BB/9) and 3.35 FIP still look solid. His velocity is down little bit, but 94.1 mph should be good enough to get outs. He may not be the poster ace, but he can still turn his season around.

71

11

Zach Britton

RP

$ 18

+$ 2

Looks like his K-rate is regressing back little, but the lefty closer has established himself as one of top relievers in the league.

72

-5

Jacoby Ellsbury

CF

$ 18

He has been on shelf for about a week, but he at least stayed out of DL. The speedy OF will need to battle for his health throughout the season, and his power is nowhere to be found.

73

-2

Michael Brantley

LF,CF

$ 18

+$ 1

Second DL trip. The versatile OF can't catch a break.

74

22

Matt Kemp

RF

$ 18

+$ 3

His Walk-rate is career low by far (2.6%), but his line is just fine for non-OBP leagues. His .250 BA is nothing more than a BABIP issue, and his rejuvenated power has been compensating his less aggressive base running.

75

-2

Miguel Sano

3B,RF

$ 18

+$ 1

The promising slugger hit two HRs in his last three games, but he still only has 5 of them so far this season. He is only a kid, so he still has a lot of room for improvement. Let's hope that starts soon.

76

-13

Byung-ho Park

1B

$ 18

-$ 1

The Twins fans don't have much stuff to smile about, but this guy is different. The Korean slugger traveled 6000 miles to hit some long balls, and he has done it successfully so far.

77

-13

Jose Bautista

RF

$ 17

-$ 1

Joey Bats hasn't hit HR since May 6th, and his BA is down to .215. He still walks tons, and no one makes the opposing pitcher more trembling. He should be fine heading into the free agency, but little deterioration at age 35 wouldn't be surprising.

78

9

Anthony Rendon

2B,3B

$ 17

+$ 1

He has been running little more (his SB just opens up the 1B in front of Harper, but that's a real baseball issue), but the former top prospect's bat hasn't done much for his owners. He is not a power hitter.

79

-9

Edwin Encarnacion

1B

$ 17

He is striking out more, walking less, and swinging for less power. Nothing looks right for the 33-year-old slugger heading into the free agency this winter.

80

-5

Josh Harrison

2B,3B,LF,RF

$ 16

The diminutive 2B looks a good bet to continue hitting over .300, but his owners want him to be more aggressive on the base path. He has the skill set.

81

19

Nick Hundley

C

$ 16

+$ 2

He is still on DL. Tony Wolters didn't do much to threaten his spot, so he will be slotted right back in the tasty Rockies line up, and his bat will be valuable.

82

-16

Kyle Seager

3B

$ 16

-$ 2

He started May hot, but he hasn't homered since May 7th. He still had hit over .300 in that span, and his season BA is now up to .252. His owners are rewarded for their patience.

83

-14

Brian Dozier

2B

$ 16

-$ 1

Molitor finally decided to hit him at 6th, and it's a devastating news for the struggling 2B. He already lost chunk of his value this year, and hitting lower in the miserable Twins batting order probably erasing any of his leftover value at this point.

84

-6

Chris Archer

SP

$ 16

He is still getting his Ks done, but his high BB and HR rate are concerning. He has been throwing more change-ups to compensate his diminished velocity, but it hasn't been working out so far. It's probably not a bad idea to move him while people still think of him as a top shelf ace with little struggles. He still can be good, but probably not as good as last year.

85

NEW

Hector Rondon

RP

$ 16

+$ 3

The closer for the most winning team in ML certainly deserves as spot here. His ERA is 0.69 and hasn't walked anybody this season yet.

86

5

Billy Hamilton

CF

$ 16

+$ 1

His .235 BA is not the most terrible number for Hamilton. The real issue has been his mere 7 SB for the year. He barely walks and unfortunately 9 of his 20 hits have gone extra bases. His improved power isn't the most welcoming sign for his owners.

87

-13

Gerrit Cole

SP

$ 16

-$ 1

He has been walking hitters little more than usual, but nothing of him changed from last year.

88

6

Jacob deGrom

SP

$ 16

+$ 1

His velocity is still down and his K-rate is career low 6.07 K/9. He is still somehow getting quality outs, but owners who drafted him for his elite K shouldn't be too thrilled.

89

-8

Nelson Cruz

RF

$ 16

He is still a good hitter, but his power finally showing some decay at age 35. He should still be a quality bat for many teams, but no more 40 HRs.

90

NEW

Aroldis Chapman

RP

$ 16

+$ 2

The hardest throwing closer is back on the mound after a long wait, and he still throws the same old electric stuff. Probably the best closer to own from this point on.

91

7

Jean Segura

2B,SS

$ 16

+$ 1

The D-Back uniform suits him well. Only 4 shortstops have played better than him so far. His .340 BA is due for a regression, but he still can easily beat his pre-season ADP by a big margin.

92

1

David Robertson

RP

$ 16

The White Sox only won 1 game in last 5, so his SV pace has slowed down, but he enjoys finally having a decent defense to help him out. He can easily record career best SV and ERA this season.

93

NEW

Yadier Molina

C

$ 16

+$ 5

His .331 BA is easily the best among the catchers. He hasn't homered yet this season, but he was never a power hitter to be fair.

94

-11

Jason Kipnis

2B

$ 15

-$ 1

He is still getting a K per game, so he needs to keep his BABIP high. He has done well so far with improved line drives, but there are few question marks whether he can keep this up. His 14.3 HR/FB also due for a regression (career 9.5%).

95

-15

Melky Cabrera

LF

$ 15

-$ 1

His .373 OBP is very impressive, and he can always hit for average. People are probably looking for little more power from their corner outfielders, but boring guys like Melky could end up being better than many young kids.

96

NEW

Matt Holliday

LF

$ 15

+$ 2

His year-to-year consistency is already world famous, and another 20 HR .270 season could be on deck for the 36-year-old if he can stay on the field.

97

-5

DJ LeMahieu

2B

$ 15

High BA with decent speed at 2B will play anywhere.  His swing also looks little stronger at age 27, so he might be able to reach his career high in HR.

98

-8

Albert Pujols

1B

$ 15

He has hit .240 and 2 HR for last 7 days, and his line should look similar for the rest of the season. Read More.

99

=

Gregory Polanco

RF

$ 15

You can't ask for more than .283 .388 .488 slash line. His improvement in BB has been impressive, and he has a great chance to continue his breakout season.

100

-16

Masahiro Tanaka

SP

$ 15

-$ 1

Bad defense, bad stadium, but he still finds ways to shine.

Fallouts: Dallas Keuchel, Adrian Gonzalez, Ben Revere, David Peralta

On the Bubble: Ben Zobrist, Victor Martinez, Aaron Nola, Adam Eaton, Wade Davis
