Consensus Top-100 Fantasy Prospects

With all of our organizational top-ten lists in the can, the prospect staff at Fake Teams has compiled their consensus Top-100 fantasy prospects.

We've finished up the top 10 lists for each organization, and with that comes the capstone of our rankings, our consensus top 100 list. Prospect lists represent a moment in time, based on the information available at that point and the opinion of the ranker. With seven rankers this year, we are providing them as consensus rankings, but also providing the individual lists at the end. As a result, there will be players ranked significantly different on each list, and that's not at all surprising. We each have our own methods, our own things that we give more or less weight to, and in the end I feel that this gives you the readers a broader view on these prospects. With that in mind, I have the usual caveats.

While prospect rankings require a specifically ordered list from 1 to wherever, don't take too much from a ranking you feel is a few spots too high or too low, as we're probably not going to argue if you think a player belongs three spots higher than we ranked them. The other thing to note is that these lists don't necessarily line up directly with our previous team rankings, and that comes from getting more information and making updates as the offseason has gone on. We are always looking for more information, and as we receive it, it can change how a player is viewed.

For our rankings, we use a standard points system, where a vote for a player as the #1 prospect gets him 100 points, the #2 gets 99, and so on. From there, each of the three individual lists is given equal weight, and the consensus ranking is based on the total number of points a prospect receives, with 300 being the maximum possible.

We've written about nearly all of these prospects already as a part of our top-10 lists, which you can find here if you're looking for more in-depth information on nearly all of them. Have a question about a ranking? Post it in the comments, and we'll try to give some insight into our thoughts.

And, given that this was a collaborative effort, I figured that I would offer some interesting tidbits about the discrepancies between the lists:

  • James Kaprielian is the highest ranked player that did not appear on all three lists.
  • Willie Calhoun is the lowest ranked prospect that appeared on all three lists.
  • Robert Gsellman, Cal Quantrill, Thomas Szapucki, and Richard Urena all appeared on just one list apiece.
  • All three lists had a different prospect at number one (Yoan Moncada, Andrew Benintendi, and Lucas Giolito).
  • Yadier Alvarez had the highest range among players that made all three lists - he was ranked as 32, and as low as 84.
  • The Brewers have eight prospects in the top-hundred - the most of any team. Next up are the Yankees and Braves at seven each.
