RotoWire Roundtable: Top 300 Composite Rankings

RotoWire Roundtable: Top 300 Composite Rankings

This article is part of our RotoWire Roundtable series.

Welcome to the first installment of the 2020 RotoWire Roundtable Rankings!

Jeff Erickson does a great job with our fantasy baseball projections and those 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 biases in our analysis -- we both happen to be Reds fans after all -- and more opinions are always welcome, so we add the Top 350s of Todd Zola and up-and-coming RotoWire writer Erik Halterman to the mix this year 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 AVG. There will be two updates to the Roundtable later this spring.
