  1. Paul Goldschmidt should be in this tier, probably in the third tier. He’s a relatively high risk player but has more upside than any of these guys. Is there some sort of eligibility constraint I’m missing?

  2. for sure, in a keeper league ranking it is fairly insane to consider Carlos Lee more highly ranked than Goldy.

  3. Yeah, it’s not your list, it’s the author’s

  4. There may not have been much of a change in Dunn’s batted ball profile, but there were huge changes in his plate discipline profile. He swung out of the zone over 8% more than he has over his career. He also made contact out of the zone a ton more than he has in the past; an increase of over 12%. Pitchers seemed to recognize this as he saw fewer pitches in the zone than he ever has. On top of all this, he could not hit a fastball to save his life. I just don’t see the point in drafting him unless you can get him very late drafts, which I don’t see happening.

  5. Billy Butler deserves better.

  6. Isn’t Mike Napoli going to be 1B eligible next year?

  7. Butler should be tier 2 in my opinion, though it largely depends on the categories used in your fantasy league. He is still only 25 years old, hits for a good average, high OBP, and solid power. If he were on a better team you would see his Runs and RBI easily surpass 100 on a consistent basis. He also has a much better track record than a bunch of those younger guys listed, so he is far less risky.
