The points third base rankings take on a similar feel to the roto rankings of the position. In fact the same players make up the top eight but the order changes a little. This reflects the different emphasis on power and on base percentage that we have discussed between the formats. In terms of major movers and shakers there are no huge disparities in the two rankings. Kyle Seager jumping up a tier and a few spots and Evan Longoria sliding out of the top three tiers into a fourth tier are the main headlines. Lower down Joey Gallo obviously drops off the face of the planet in terms of fantasy relevance to be replaced by the safe Martin Prado.
Ranking for points leagues is always tough because every league is slightly different. The format I am taking here is what I consider to be fairly standard. A point for each base, run, RBI, walk, HBP and steal and -1 for each strikeout. Of course every league has its own quirk and that means the user has to adjust for those in his or her rankings for that particular league but hopefully this gives you base to go off and then you can adjust if for example your league rewards power or really punishes strikeouts.
As with my roto rankings everything here is calculated off ESPN eligibility.
