Fantasy MLB 2019 Review: Top Overachievers and Busts by Position

Our goal with this analysis is to not only tell you who the best players will be, but also tell you who the most underrated and overrated players are. This season Alex Bregman was the number one third baseman averaging 4.2 FPs per game. And he has exceeded expectations. Based on average draft position he was expected to be the #5 third baseman. Another good value this season was Kevin Newman, the #15 ranked shortstop based on total fantasy points who has greatly exceeded his draft expectation (#55 highest drafted shortstop). On the other hand, a lot was expected from the #38 drafted outfielder, Billy Hamilton, but he was just the #108 outfielder based on total fantasy production making him the biggest disappointment among players who played a significant number of games. The table below shows the Top 5 Fantasy Players by Position, the Top 5 Overachievers and the Biggest Busts
