MLB Postseason Cheatsheet

2017 MLB Playoff Rankings

This set of rankings will presume that your league uses standard 5×5 scoring rules. I’m projecting the Indians to beat the Dodgers in the World Series, and consequently those two teams’ players will often rank higher as a result of having more games.
