2013 End of Season Overall Rankings

The 2013 fantasy baseball season has come to a close, so it is time to look back at the season past and determine which players were the most valuable at each position. Today, we’re revealing overall rankings before diving into positional ranks in the weeks to come. The players were ranked based on their 2013 production, using the evaluation system explained and updated on this site some time ago.

To keep things manageable and avoid skewing the numbers, hitters were only considered if they amassed 400 plate appearances over the course of the year. Starting pitchers must have thrown 120 innings, and relievers must have thrown 40. Players are only listed at their most valuable position, and the valuations are built for $260 budgets and traditional 5×5 roto fantasy leagues.

One important thing to note is the premium (or lack thereof) placed on the position a player occupies in your lineup. For example, while a first baseman may be able to accumulate superior overall numbers, the availability of such production lower in the rankings severely dampers the amount the player was worth.

These rankings are meant to reflect a player’s value should he have occupied this spot in your lineup for the entire year. So, a player who missed time due to injury but put up great numbers during his time on the field would be worth less.

With all this in mind, here are your rankings.
