2018 Fantasy Baseball Weekly Rankings: Third Basemen

Last update: 10/31/2017
The development of *SCOUTscores* started with the theory around Average Player Scores. In today’s Fantasy Baseball market, it is extremely difficult to determine a baseball player’s value when drafting when you have multiple positions never mind multiple scoring categories. The average player theory is a way to compare players at similar positions. Once we have a baseline of the average player, we can determine which players have the biggest edge. The next step after establishing these scores at each position is then comparing the best option at other positions.

Each season the player pool changes. Some positions will have more depth and others will only have a couple of strong options. When a Fantasy owner is preparing to do his draft prep, he wants to find the hidden values at each position. By doing this, he can select the strongest options at the other positions early in the draft.

Scout Fantasy Sports has developed a way to determine each player’s value within each category relevant to their production. Hitters have five offensive categories (batting average, runs, home runs, RBI, and stolen bases). Pitchers also have five categories (wins, ERA, WHIP, strikeouts, and saves).

With these scores, a Fantasy owner can quickly look at stats to see which players have the most value either by last year’s stats or this year’s projections from any source. When using projections, a Fantasy owner’s success will only be as strong as his/her ability to interpret information. Finding the best source for that information is essential.

By using SCOUTscores, a Fantasy owner can easily see which players had the most value last season. It is really a tool that will help you when you are making future decisions. By understanding the player pool and each player's value within each category, a Fantasy owner can make better draft decisions. Here's a look at chart for both batters and pitchers to show power points gained or lost in each category within a league environment:
