I kind of hate ranks when it comes to fantasy baseball. Ranks feel like they lock a player into being selected in a certain spot. Players should be drafted based on the way that a team is being constructed. If a team is being built for speed then a guy like Chris Davis probably won’t be on their radar while Billy Hamilton will be much more valuable. By placing ranks on these players it feels like they need to be picked at a certain spot. If there is a player who has fallen below his projected draft spot don’t feel compelled to pick him. Just stick to whatever strategy was chosen when the draft began.
