2013 End of Season Rankings: Outfield

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. This week focuses on outfielders.

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, players were only considered if they amassed 400 plate appearances over the course of the year. The replacement level was also adjusted to account for players eligible at multiples positions. The valuations are built for $260 budgets and traditional 5×5 roto fantasy leagues, where only one catcher is started.

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.

    This may be a stupid question but is there an easy way to calculate the $$ of a player if he had a different amount of ABs, say Fowler at 600 ABs?

    • Benjamin says:

      the easy way would seem to me: 600 / 415 = 1.45

      1.45 x $7.81 = $11.32

      i guess this isn’t perfect – as i assume dollar values are dependent on the performance of other available options – but as far as an “easy way” i think that should come close!

    Is the weighting system proprietary, or is there an easily explainable weighting system for the cagegories? For example 1sb= X amount of $ value?
