RotoWire Roundtable: March 12 Update

RotoWire Roundtable: March 12 Update

This article is part of our RotoWire Roundtable series.

If you are unfamiliar with our Roundtable series...

Jeff Erickson's projections drive our custom rankings. I have a separate set of rotisserie rankings on our site, to offer another opinion on the player pool.

But there are always going to be biases in our analysis. To help weed those out and provide the most balanced fantasy baseball rankings we can offer, we add the Top 350s of Todd Zola and Erik Halterman to the mix to compile this Top 300 composite ranking.

For these, we assume 5x5 rotisserie scoring with 23 active players (14 hitters, including two catchers, and nine pitchers).

You can sort the list below by individual ranker, and you can also sort by average ranking (AVG) or median ranking (Med). The default rank (Rk) is by median ranking.

Intro written by Clay Link

Any individual rank outside the Top 350 should be considered "NR" or Not Ranked.
