| by

In today’s continuation of Dr. Roto’s fantasy baseball cheat sheets, he takes a look at the Short Stops.

Unlike many sites that rank players in order, Dr. Roto uses a tier system. Good luck at your drafts!

Other Positions

Tier A: (love these guys)

A police officer saw a young black couple drive by and pulled them over. What he did next left them stunned:
  • Troy Tulowitzki - Ultra consistent and is still young enough to improve on his numbers
  • Hanley Ramirez - Still a 30/30 threat when he is mentally into the game
  • Derek Jeter - Getting a bit older, but plays in a great lineup and is the heart of the Yankees
  • Jimmy Rollins - Not producing like in the past, but capable of putting together another good fantasy seasony
  • Jose Reyes - Will be overvalued at your drafts, try to avoid the bidding war unless you are a Mets fan

Tier B: (like these guys)

  • Elvis Andrus - You can’t teach speed, and he has a ton of it
  • Alexi Ramirez - Underappreciated as a fantasy playerl
  • Stephen Drew - Been talking about the big year forever. Will 2011 be the year?
  • Ian Desmond - Look at the numbers closely and tell me why Reyes goes for $25 more than him
  • Starlin Castro - Emerging star in Chicago
  • Rafael Furcal - Can’t stay healthy, but a terrific player when he plays
  • Erick Aybar - under the radar place to find speed

Tier C: (sleepers, busts, and mediocrity)

  • Asdrubal Cabrera - Look for a nice year out of him in 2011
  • Jed Lowrie - Scutaro may be the starter in name, but Lowrie is the better fantasy player
  • Yunel Escobar - Needs to be more confident at the plate, could surprise
  • Cliff Pennington - Not a sexy name, but has speed to burn
  • Alcides Escobar - Tons of speed and no one to pressure him in KC
  • Yuniesky Betancourt - Safe play if you need a middle infielder, has some power
  • J.J. Hardy - If he can stay healthy, could hit 20 HR
  • Jason Bartlett - Will steal a few and score a few in San Diego
  • Reid Brignac -Has 15/15 potential if he can get comfortable at the plate

Tier D: (try to avoid)

  • Clint Barmes - Overrated
  • Brendan Ryan - Will never be on Dr. Roto’s fantasy team
  • Orlando Cabrera - Hasn’t been good in fantasy for years
  • Alex Gonzalez - Has pop, but kills your average
  • Alexi Casilla - Has some speed, but little else
  • Paul Janish/Jack Wilson/ Ronny Cedeno - Has it come to this?
