League size absolutely matter for this kind of discussion? Is it a 12 teams league where you'd basically go for upside and don't care for floor. Or is it a 30 teams league where an average MLB SS is a useful commodity and you'll have to factor in both floor and ceiling. Rankings would be drastically different. For example Andrew Heaney is probably not in the top 30 if I'm in a 12 teams league yet would be significantly higher in a 30 teams league.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

I'm assuming you want these based on fantasy

1. C. Correa (Hou - SS) - I thought all a long he was the best talent in the draft
2. M. Zunino (Sea - C) - Should be a very safe and productive offensive catcher for years to come
3. A. Russell (Hou - SS) - Defense has gotten better at shortstop and produced right away
4. D. Dahl (Col - OF) - More advanced than some thought and Dominated RK ball
5. B. Buxton (Min - OF) - Tools galore but somewhat risky with swing and miss approach
6. M. Fried (SD - LHP) - Might have to a wait on HS youngster but far and away best lefty in draft
7. K. Zimmer (KC -RHP) - WIll move quickly and has electric stuff despite not pitching full time till now
8. C. Hawkins (ChW - OF) - Risker than Almora but more power potential
9. A. Almora (ChC - OF) - Very safe and polished, reminds me of JD Drew some
10. K. Gausman (Bal -RHP) - Nice arsenal and should move quickly, but results low so far

Not: L. Giolito (Was - RHP) - Best arm in the draft but who knows how TJ recovery will go.

Lets pretend its for a 20 team deep keeper, then everyone can just apply a sliding scale for positions based on their league.

I picked 13th in my 24 tm first year player draft and I put 14 players on my board before the draft. tbh I didn't spend too much time ranking the guys that I knew were going to be gone but spent a few minutes putting a list together. I ended up with my #13 in Puig after debating about his upside vs Seager. 2B/SS/3B are difficult to get in this league due to depth. I also included the two Cubans in this list since they are probably available in most drafts like this.

Correa - no problems with him #1.
Buxton - a little concerned that his current hit tool is his weakest but the potential is there for power, speed and average
Fried - he's a guy that has shot up my list due to some really good scouting reports - esp his curve.
Soler - a wild card. Power and speed guy.
Gausman - both Gausman and Zunino are stuck in the should be good but not great category - could move up or down based on your preferences for upside/floor
Zunino
Dahl - I am not going to launch Dahl and Russell into the top of this list based on rk ball stats. Not yet anyway
Russell
Giolito - TJ sucks but he has the upside that I look for in this kind of draft.
Almora
Zimmer - a little concerned about his elbow
Wacha - a college pitcher that destroyed the lower levels last year (40K/4BB/21IP). Can't go higher than this though due being a college pitcher in the lower levels.
Puig - another wild card - easy, powerful swing but I see a lot of swing and miss
Seager
Hawkins and Berrios were just off of my board.


here is the actual first rd of the draft
1. Kevin Gausman, SP BAL - SP'ers in a 24 tm league are worth a lot if they are simply breathing
2. David Dahl, OF COL
3. Mike Zunino, C SEA
4.Byron Buxton, OF MIN
5. Kyle Zimmer, SP KC
6. Carlos Correa, SS HOU
7. Lucas Giolito, SP WAS
8. Jorge Soler, OF LAD
9. Max Fried, SP SD
10. Albert Almora, OF CHC
11. Addison Russell, SS OAK
12. Michael Wacha, SP STL
13. Yaisel Puig, OF LAD
14. Corey Seager, SS LAD
15. Ryu Hyun Jin, SP LAD
16. Courtney Hawkins, OF CHW
17. Richie Shaffer, 3b TB
18. J.O. Berrios, P MIN
19. Andrew Heaney, LHP MIA
20. Gavin Cecchini, NYM
21. DJ Davis, OF TOR
22. Chris Stratton , RHP SF
23. Joey Gallo, 3b TEXAS
24. Stryker Trahan, C AZ

Kab21, thank for the reply. Posting your leagues entry draft results was great. Wish I would have seen it a day sooner, I might have got Wacha, he was on the top of my short list but I took Puig the round before, I might have been swayed to flip flop .. if anyone else has entry draft dynasty results feel free to post them for everyone to compare ..

one other question too ..

I could swap any of these guys ...
Jake Marisnick
Oswaldo Arcia
Aaron Hicks
Trevor Story
Roman Quinn
Cory Seager
Brian Goodwin
Avisail Garcia

for any of these existing guys .. please post if you would keep or swap the guys below, thx. ..
CJ Cron
Bryce Brentz
Matt Adams

I would drop 2 of them and add Seager and Story. I think they are better prospects and in my league good 2B/SS/3B are hard to find (24 tms). Usually you can find someone to play in the OF/1B.

Brentz strikes me as a Willingham type if the strikeouts don't explode in the majors. .260, 30 HR, 2 SB

Cron swings at everything so I'm not too high on him either.

Adams has mashed everywhere and doesn't K much. I would probably keep him even if he is a giant. He will has a good chance to play this year instead of waiting for the other two.

I would drop Quinn for Cron and call it a day.
