Top 100 by Position

Postby Dan Charette » Sun Feb 11, 2007 4:47 pm

I've been checking some different sites and decided to see how the top 100 were getting ranked and drafted. The CBS, ESPN, MLB, Funston were ranks. MDC was an expert draft. FBC 1 was the cafeaholics draft. FBC 2 was the Holiday draft, and FBC 3 was the early draft. I used LF, RF, and CF for the outfield. Obviously there were some multiple position players. I put them at only 1 position.
This won't help keeper leagues . This will mostly help redraft leagues for those who like to use position scarcity.

CBS ESPN MLB MDC Funston FBC 1 FBC 2 FBC 3

1st 10 12 14 12 12 12 13 13

2nd 7 7 9 9 8 5 5 3

3rd 9 10 9 9 9 1 0 9 9

ss 1 0 11 8 11 1 0 10 9 9

LF 8 8 7 8 8 9 9 8

CF 8 8 8 8 8 8 7 7

RF 9 7 7 6 6 9 7 8

C 3 3 3 6 3 3 3 3

DH 2 2 3 2 2 3 2 2

SP 21 20 22 20 24 21 26 26

RP 13 10 17 11 9 9 10 12


The MDC draft were using a 2 catcher league, thus the difference in the number there.

The DH's were Hafner and Thome, and Frank Thomas 2 times

All relief pitchers were closers, except for Zumaya who was listed a couple times.

I'll try to remember the multi position players and where I put them

Berkman 1b
Glaus 3b
Ichiro CF ( I put him there , because he's better suited to play center in fantasy)
Swisher RF
Figgins 2b ( he qualifies there in yahoo leagues)
Lopez ss ( he'll play 2nd this year, but he's not eligible there yet.)
Hall ss

I think that's it. Hope this can help someone.

Strange, I get 107 players for the MLB, 102 for MDC, 99 for Funston and FBC 1, and 98 for ESPN. Anyways its pretty interesting, I wouldn't have expected there to be between 7 and 9 2Bs selected in the Top 100 in so many of the other drafts. Looks like the Cafers got that right.

Thanks Dan and Tavish. Interesting info, I suppose. The number of each position ranked in each source's Top 100 could show some scarcity issues if you want a top ranked kind of player. For instance, catcher and 2nd base. Perhaps it'd be more informative to split up the results even further into 'Top 25', 'Top 50', 'Top 100' categories, but whatever, looks good.

The point of this is to show position scarcity.

If there is a 12 next to first base, it means that there are 12 first baseman in the top 100 players.

Get it?

Thanks for the help in editing Tavish. I guess I should have checked my counts.
I was getting into the study and didn't check. I did have the numbers in the right place, and I don't know what happened to the spacing of the numbers.

It's just to be used as a draft helper. It helps me know which positions that I want to get in the first 8 rounds (12 Team) . I use this along with my position sheets. I know which positions I can wait until after the 8th round. It helps me avoid getting stuck with a dud at a position.
So really I work the draft backwords, as well as forward. By knowing what positions I have good middle or late round choices, I then make sure I get players in the early rounds for the positions that I don't like the later choices.
In leagues with LF, CF, and RF it makes a big difference. The more teams in the league, the more important position scarcity becomes.
That's how I draft. I've had good luck in 16 and 20 team leagues.
