May Top 300 Overall

Monday, May 06, 2013


It's time for the May rankings update. As always, players are ranked based on how I believe they'll perform in 5x5 scoring over the rest of the season. Included along with the position rankings is an updated top 300 list. I try to list players at the positions at which they're most valuable, so if you can't find that second baseman you're looking for, check shortstop instead.
