2017 Fantasy Baseball Shortstop Rankings





Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: February 24, 2017.



  1. Carlos Correa, SS, Houston Astros

    Carlos Correa can get you 20 home runs, 70 RBI's and 15 stolen bases. He's one of three complete five tool shortstops that you can build your Fantasy Baseball team around.



  2. Corey Seager, SS, Los Angeles Dodgers

    Corey Seager posted a .308 batting average plus he hit 21 home runs and 72 RBI's in 2016. Seager is a home run hitter that can consistently produce RBI's. He's not the base-stealer Correa is plus he's 23 where as Correra is 22.



  3. Francisco Lindor, SS, Cleveland Indians

    Francisco Lindor batted .301 with 15 home runs and 19 stolen bases in 2016. Lindor is capable of being a 20/20 player with 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases. Lindor is the final of the three 5-tool shortstops that can make plays with home runs, line drives, grounders, or bunts while displaying the speed, fielding, and arm you covet when getting outs.



  4. Xander Bogarts, SS, Boston Red Sox

    Xander Bogarts can get you 80 RBI's consistently. I think that is definitely something you want if you miss out on Seager, Correa, or Lindor. Some have Bogarts ahead of Lindor and he's clearly a top 5 shortstop.



  5. Jonathan Villar, SS, Milwaukee Brewers

    Jonathan Villar may be the best base stealing shortstop in fantasy baseball. Villar had a mind boggling 62 stolen bases to go with his 19 home runs and 63 RBI's in 2016. The question is can Villar match that level of play in 2017. Villar may move to second base and has multi position ability.




  6. Trevor Story, SS, Colorado Rockies

    Trevor Story has a lot of upside. He could be a Troy Tulowitzki clone or he could be a fill in gap until Brendan Rodgers arrives.



  7. Troy Tulowitzki, SS, Toronto Blue Jays

    Speaking of Tulo, he comes in at 8. Troy Tulowitzki is someone that can consistently get you 70 RBI's. He may not be the 5-tool player he was on the Rockies, but he's still a reliable asset in Toronto.



  8. Jean Segura, SS, Seattle Mariners

    Jean Segura dominated with Arizona posting a career high .319 batting average in 2016. I'm not sure why Arizona traded him to Seattle, but Segura has a chance to be a top ten third baseman if he can maintain his production in Seattle in 2017.



  9. Addison Russell, SS, Chicago Cubs

    Addison Russell may only bat .240. He's not a base stealer. At the same time he's capable of getting 25 home runs and 100 RBI's. That's Russell's ceiling with the Cubs.



  10. Aledmys Diaz, SS, St. Louis Cardinals

    Aledmys Diaz batted .300 and hit 65 RBI's in 2016. Diaz is raw, but has huge potential.




  11. Brandon Crawford, SS, San Francisco Giants

    Brandon Crawford has back-to-back seasons of 84 RBI's. He only had 12 home runs in 2016 after having 21 in 2015. His triples increased from 4 to 11 so Crawford got faster despite losing power.



  12. Brad Miller, SS, Tampa Bay Rays

    Brad Miller's batting average and stolen bases dropped in 2016. Miller hit 30 home runs and 81 RBI's in 2016. Miller may only hit 20 home runs and 10 stolen bases. He will still contribute, but I don't expect him to dominate like he did last season.



  13. Marcus Semien, SS, Oakland Athletics

    Marcus Semien had 27 home runs, 75 RBI's and 10 stolen bases. Like Brad Miller his batting average and stolen bases dropped. Siemian should have a batting average around .260 in 2017. I think he has potential to get 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases.



  14. Elvis Andrus, SS, Texas Rangers

    Elvis Andrus batted .302. He's not a home run hitter, but he gets on base frequently. Andrus can bring in RBI's and is an excellent base stelaer that can get you 24-33 stolen bases.



  15. Dansby Swanson, SS, Atlanta Braves

    Dansby Swanson, the top pick in the 2015 MLB Draft batted .302 and he's versatile enough to play anywhere in the infield. Swanson could be a sleeper this year so keep an eye out on him.




  16. Asdrubal Cabrera, SS, New York Mets

    Asdrubal Cabrera improved his batting average from .265 to .280 in 2016. Cabrera ahd 23 home runs, 62 RBI's and 5 stolen bases last season. Cabrera can stay fully healthy for about 3 months so if you draft him make sure to double up at shortstop or have a backup in place. Maybe if you get Cabrera as a backup you get a third shortstop.



  17. Didi Gregorius, SS, New York Yankees

    Didi Gregorious had 20 home runs and 70 RBI's in 2016. Gregorious is no Jeter, but he's quickly blossoming into an effective power bat that the Yankees have to turn to for runs.



  18. Jose Peraza, SS, Cincinnati Reds

    Jose Peraza batted .324 with 21 stolen bases and 25 RBI's. Peraza has potential, but still needs to develop as a home run hitter.



  19. Tim Anderson, SS, Chicago White Sox

    Tim Anderson had 10 home runs and 30 RBI's in 2016. Anderson could end up being a late round asset in Fantasy Leagues.



  20. Orlando Arcia, SS, Milwaukee Brewers

    Orlando Arcia may end up taking Villar's job at shortstop. Some believe Villar may move to second base.
