RotoWire Roundtable: Updated Rankings for 60-game Season

RotoWire Roundtable: Updated Rankings for 60-game Season

This article is part of our RotoWire Roundtable series.

Welcome to the second installment of our Roundtable rankings for the 60-game season.

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 best 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 AVG.

Look for a Q&A with the rankers in the coming days, and in the meantime, questions are more than welcome in the comments section. If you missed the first 60-game Roundtable Q&A, you can read it here.
