2019 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Shortstop

The Fake Teams writers give you their Top 15 shortstops for 2019.

MLB: ALDS-Houston Astros at Cleveland Indians Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

There’s a decent chance that Shortstop Week is more exciting than that Super Bowl, honestly. Not an exciting game, but a tense one and definitely amazing to see what Brady and Belichick have accomplished.

But that’s all over now, which means that the masses are hopefully beginning to gravitate over to a sport with a little more parity. So welcome to the MLB, folks. Here is what we have already covered in the past three weeks:

Catcher Week

First Base Week

Second Base Week

Now that you’re all caught up, let’s enjoy some consensus rankings from the Fake Teams crew. I won’t dig in with analysis just yet, but it seems like we’ll have some strong thoughts on Javier Baez and Adalberto Mondesi throughout the week.

Let us know who you think is too high or too low, and anything you’d like to hear about this week as we discuss shortstops! And for my sake, scope out the poll below that is between a pair of elite shortstops.
