2012 Fantasy Baseball Top 500 Rankings

Print Friendly

EDITOR NOTE : Updated March 25

Our Top 500 Fantasy Baseball players for 2012 are based off our new proprietary projection system (GRS). This system takes into account all the statistics which we believe proves the worth of the fantasy baseball player as a whole. No longer are hits, home runs, runs scored, wins, saves or strikeouts the only thing that makes up the fantasy player.  We also take into consideration the ball park the player plays in, the team they play for and their manager’s in-game management as well as other key statistical information.

This list will change frequently as new information is provided to us.

Our goal is to have the most accurate pre-season rankings/projections in the industry. Over the last two years we’ve proved, not only to our readers, but to the industry, that FP911 will compete with the big boys as we’ve finished in the top 10 FSWA projection contests.

Here is another category we’ve thrown in, our readers.  If there is a player on the list you feel strong about, let us know. Your vote counts here. So look carefully over the list and let us know what you think and what you would like to see changed in our rankings.
