Ray Flowers' MLB Monthly Rankings: May
Welcome to the 2017 Guru Elite Season Long Fantasy Baseball Rankings! These rankings, provided by Ray Flowers, will list the top players at each position for mixed league formats. The scoring system that is used for these rankings is 5x5 (AVG/HR/RBI/RUNS/SB & W/ERA, WHIP/K/SV), but it’s fair to suggest that Ray Flowers, in many cases, pays more attention to the skills and outlook of a player than he does in merely trying to guess how each player is going to do in the five fantasy categories. Therefore, no matter your roto scoring setup, the rankings listed here should be fairly accurate and give you a solid starting point to understand the value of players.
Note that the rankings are set for 10, 12 and 15 team mixed leagues.
The presumed roster size is 23 starting players: 14 hitters (2 C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, MI, CI, 5 OF, UT) & 9 pitchers (any combination of starters and relievers).
Finally, THE RANKINGS WILL BE UPDATED THE FIRST OF THE MONTH THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE SEASON, SO LOOK FOR THOSE UPDATES ON May 1st, June 1st, July 1st, August 1st and September 1st.
