When it comes time to pick your fantasy baseball squad, you can go in many directions, but the safest is to go fishing, because Mike Trout remains TSN.ca’s top projected player.

While positional scarcity offers more value in other places, there is still no reason to veer away from Trout, who has scored more than 100 runs and hit at least 27 home runs in five straight seasons. He was running again last season, swiping 30 bags, and he’s a career .306 hitter, so go find flaws elsewhere. 

A quick look, by position:

At catcher, Buster Posey is the one tried and true star hitting catcher. Jonathan Lucroy is best of the rest, and second-year Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez has potential. After that, though, beauty is very much in the eye of the beholder.

First base does offer some blue-chippers. Paul Goldschmidt, Joey Votto, Miguel Cabrera, Anthony Rizzo and Edwin Encarnacion are mashers, but if you can’t get them, Jose Abreu, Freddie Freeman and Wil Myers are nice consolation prizes. Beyond that point, a declining Albert Pujols, an all-or-nothing Chris Davis and Eric Hosmer, who lacks traditional first base power, could still offer value.

Jose Altuve is one of the most valuable players in baseball, and he’s clearly at the top of the second base rankings. Jonathan Villar, shifting from shortstop, and a couple of longtime producers, Robinson Cano and Ian Kinsler are still very good. Depth at the position is still pretty decent through the top dozen or so.

Shortstop is one of the more interesting positions because there are enough starters in the majors who don’t hit very well, making the ones that do all the more valuable. Carlos Correa, Corey Seager and Trevor Story are high-ceiling players with bright futures, and yet it’s hard to say that they are clearly more valuable than Trea Turner, a speedster who hit .342 with 13 home runs and stole 33 bases in less than half a season for the Nationals. Franciso Lindor and Xander Bogaerts are great too, and then there are some young players with potential, like former No. 1 overall pick Dansby Swanson.

The hot corner appears to be top heavy, with four monsters – Nolan Arenado, Kris Bryant , Josh Donaldson and Manny Machado – at the top. After those four, though, there is a drop. Adrian Beltre is a future Hall of Famer, but he’s 37 and his consistency keeps him ahead of the rest.

The aforementioned Mike Trout is the head of the outfield class, well ahead of Mookie Betts, Bryce Harper and perennial 40-home run hitter Nelson Cruz. Outfield tends to be deep, but the difference between Trout and the rest of the field at this position is precisely why Trout is the top player available for fantasy baseball.

Pitching comes with inherent injury risk, so that affects their value in relation to hitters, but still, Clayton Kershaw might as well be the Mike Trout of pitchers. He’s far and away the best option among starting pitchers, even though he’s coming off a season in which he didn’t make a start in July or August. But, even beyond Kershaw, there are other aces that can anchor your staff; they’re just not Kershaw.

It’s also worth a reminder that investing in closers is the riskiest proposition, so don’t jump too soon, but there are some with better track records than others. Aroldis Chapman is probably the best of the group, but Kenley Jensen, Zach Britton, Mark Melancon and Craig Kimbrel come with strong records for usually good teams. But just last season, A.J. Ramos, Sam Dyson, Jeanmar Gomez and Alex Colome all finished with more than 35 saves after a minimal track record in previous seasons, so you don’t necessarily know who is going to provide late-game value.
