August 1B and DH Rankings

Monday, August 04, 2014


Here are the August Rankings. Players are ranked for the remainder of the season based on how I believe they’ll perform in 5x5 leagues. Players are also listed at the positions where they’re most valuable, so if you don’t see that third baseman you’re looking for, he’s probably listed at second or short.

Dropping off: Carlos Pena (No. 37)

 

  • Paul Goldschmidt would have come in at No. 1 again, but a broken hand that might cost him the rest of the season changed that in a hurry. It was also a big blow to the Diamondbacks offense as a whole. With Martin Prado gone, too, they figure to be one of the game’s lowest scoring teams the rest of the way.
