March Composite Rankings – Outfield

Our staff composite rankings continue on! Today we doubled up with third base earlier and now the outfield.

We’re using Yahoo! eligibility requirements which is 5 starts or 10 appearances. These rankings assume the standard 5×5 categories and a re-draft league. If we forgot someone, please let us know in the comments and we’ll make sure he’s added for the updates. If you have questions for a specific ranker on something he did, let us know in the comments. We can also be reached via Twitter:

There will be differences, sharp differences, within the rankings. The rankers have different philosophies when it comes to ranking, some of which you’re no doubt familiar with through previous iterations. Of course the idea that we’d all think the same would be silly because then what would be the point of including multiple rankers?! Think someone should be higher or lower? Make a case. Let us know why you think that. The chart is sortable. If a ranker didn’t rank someone that the others did, he was given that ranker’s last rank +1.

Key:

  • AVG– just the average of the seven ranking sets
  • Adj. AVG– the average minus the high and low rankings
  • SPLIT– the difference between the high and low rankings

Everyone but Mike seems to think Starling Marte is the same player after his suspension. Can’t help but think that his suspension isn’t also the end of his PED use. That has to have SOME impact on performance, no?

My understanding is that PED use is more often than not connected to rehabbing injuring and overcoming the wear and tear of the season, rather than adding bulk. So, it’s not like steroids=more home runs in most cases.

I think it all comes down to your steals expectations. He ran much less frequently last season than 2016 and at 29, I’m not about to project a return to 35-40 steals. I’m at 30, with all his other skills in line with history.

The studies that have been done say no
