Discover the top 250 prospects for dynasty fantasy baseball and gain an edge in your league. Get insights on the next wave of potential stars in the game.
Welcome to our preseason 2024 Top 250 Prospects for dynasty fantasy baseball. While baseball never sleeps for me, and it feels like we have been in full-throttle mode all offseason, with the turn of the calendar, it feels like many are checking back into baseball!
My goal in doing prospect rankings for dynasty is to bridge the gap between the scouting and fantasy communities. Many fantasy-created lists are stat-line driven, which is fine. But the scouting and real-life baseball community often values players completely differently than dynasty writers. I formulate these rankings using live scouting, video, and advanced analytics.
Each year, I spend more and more time at the ballpark, with this year being over 50 games. Film and data study among other things consume a lot of time in these rankings and writeups, but it is all to try and create the best list for dynasty players possible.
I often get asked what goes into my prospect rankings. My process begins with evaluating prospects on a team-by-team basis. I want to get my eyes on every player possible. It is a long process, but it is essential when ranking prospects. Live looks give you a different perspective than just watching games on MILB.TV, but you can gather plenty from watching film. I spend ample time watching every prospect I rank.
I rank each player based on how I would draft them in a prospect-only draft in a dynasty startup league. Essentially, I am looking for which prospects project to provide the most to my dynasty teams once they are in the Majors. I am not looking at a “what have you done for me lately” kind of deal.
Having access to MILB statcast and advanced metrics for every player is huge. It has undoubtedly helped solidify what the eye test shows in many circumstances.
Over the years, I have continued to refine my prospect evaluations and see what traits may cause a prospect to bust. Or what are underrated traits or undervalued prospects? All of that is incorporated into my process as well.
This year, I decided to provide the entire top-100 free for all to read. The list will actually expand out to a top-1,000 for the deepest dynasty leagues, but that will be for Dynasty Dugout members only. This year, we will also have detailed writeups on every player. I have attached the free top 100 PDF below with a spreadsheet. Click the subscribe button below for the full Top-250.
