2021 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Top 30 Shortstops

A few Fake Teams writers make their first pass at the shortstop position for 2021.

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Tampa Bay Rays Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

This is arguably the most talented position in fantasy baseball, if not fantasy sports in general. With nine shortstops being selected inside the top 40 picks per NFBC ADP, this is a spot that many drafters are willing to pay up for. And outside of that top nine are still names like Javier Baez, Carlos Correa, Jonathan Villar, Marcus Semien, and others—i.e. plenty of guys who have delivered stellar seasons in the not too distant past.

We also have a newcomer from the KBO, one Ha-seong Kim, who has yet to sign with an MLB team. That signing shouldn’t take long, though, as Kim is toolsy and only 25 years old.

We’ll have more to come once positional weeks begin in the new year, but for now enjoy the first pass through shortstops and give us your reactions!
