In case you missed it, last week I released my first set of dynasty rankings since taking over the rankings from Ian Kahn, whose role with The Athletic expanded. Ian did an outstanding job with the rankings and I believe he will have a fresh set of dynasty rankings over at TA in the coming weeks, which I strongly recommend you check out. He will also be coming on the Prospect Podcast with Clay Link and I next week, so be on the look out for that.
These rankings are for OBP leagues, but you can click the Show AVG League Arrows button to see whose value increases or decreases in AVG leagues. They are for 15-team leagues where each team starts two catchers, so downgrade catchers across the board if you play in a league where only 15-20 catchers are started. This doesn't need to be said for most of you, but I still see people confusing dynasty leagues with keeper leagues, which can be a big mistake. A dynasty league is a league where you can keep ~90% of your roster from year to year. If you select five, 10 or 15 players to keep every year, you play in a keeper league, not a dynasty league. The main difference in valuations is that proximity to a player's prime years and a player's ceiling matter much more in keeper leagues. Like with a projection system, dynasty rankings should be used as a tool, not as a rigid means
