The list is a great tool that I use every year.

Would it be possible to include standard deviation again this year? That's something I've found very helpful that's tough to find anywhere else.

Thanks for going through the effort to provide this.

Hey Rooks,

Last year you mentioned that you may be able to implement a tool that would show only AL or NL players for those of us who are in AL/NL only leagues. Is that still possible?

Also, just a couple of things you can tweak if you want:

-Mat Gamel could be removed from the list since he is out for the season.
-There is an error in the numbering starting at 423 on the spreadsheet & 435 on the first page of this thread.

The standard deviation that I had listed in the past was only for cafe leagues. I'm not sure that the standard deviation between various ADP resources provides any meaningful information, which is why I never provided it.

I guess I could add in AL/NL but the MDP data will not be helpful in those types of leagues, only the rank order.

Thanks for pointing out other errors. Will correct on next update. ;-D

You could also remove Rafael Furcal who is out for the season. Will the next update be on Sunday? I'm trying to figure out which MDP I will be using for my Sunday March 24th draft.

I'm a little bored at work so I figured I'd touch upon 10 things I noticed about the rankings thus far.

1 - Aroldis Chapman is currently ranked after Jonathan Papelbon. This suggests that people might not believe that he will be as dominant as a starting pitcher since he would be ranked higher than Papelbon if he were still a closer.

2 - Kenley Jansen is ranked higher than Brandon League & Jansen is supposed to be League's set up man. That either shows how good Jansen's numbers are or that people think that he will wind up becoming the Dodgers 9th inning guy.

3 - Emilio Bonifacio isn't even projected to have a starting spot in the Jays outfield yet he is ranked 218th overall over some pretty decent everyday starters.

4 - Wil Myers has nothing left to prove at the minor league level but as of now since he isn't guaranteed to have a starting job in the Rays outfield on opening day he is at a huge discount at 219th overall.

5 - Kyle Lohse remains unsigned but is still ranked higher than full-time closer's.

6 - There is a pretty good possibility that Ryan Madson is closing out games in April. It is known that interim closer Ernesto Frieri's saves might be limited but his numbers were so good he's still ranked higher than closer's who are in a better situation than he is in such as Carlos Marmol, Bruce Rondon, Bobby Parnell, & Jose Veras.

7 - I have read at least 2 articles & have watched at lesat 2 fantasy shows that have dumped on Jose Valverde. On top of that, nobody wants to even take a shot on him with a guaranteed deal. That said, there seems to be a big correction coming since he is still listed in the top 300.

8 - Chris Carpenter will be out for a while so expect him to plummet out of the top 250's in the next update.

9 - Brennan Boesch was released & should probably drop off the MDP entirely by the next update.

10 - Expect Aaron Hicks & Nolan Arenado to skyrocket from their current 462 & 494 ranks respectively.
