MLB Depth Charts

Welcome to the fantasy baseball depth charts page! Keeping tabs on which players are starters or reserves/backups is a GIANT job, so we defer this to the experts who have full staffed websites that have time to produce this type of information. Besides, our time is better spent handicapping the day's games to provide you with the best possible daily fantasy baseball picks possible!

One day, we may eventually do the depth charts for all MLB teams ourselves, but for the time being, we rely on and trust all of the links below. Enjoy!

RotoWorld MLB Depth Charts - RotoWorld did a great job with their depth charts as it is created with the ability to hover over players and relevant notes pop up, like updates and injury statuses. It is organized by team and you will see a colored square next to any player that has a timely note. While you are scouring these depth charts, as always, they have a very useful right menu which highlights breaking MLB news as well as lists all of the trending players at the time.

CBS Sports MLB Depth Charts - We like the layout of these guys' page over at CBS sports because it is organized and sorted by position. It is one of the few sites to do that, as most of the others sort it by team. This is nice because you can get a quick glance at ALL of the starting catchers, second basemen, etc. at one time. It is very useful when you are deciding on a particular position in a daily fantasy sports game or even during the middle of a live season long league draft.

Fox Sports MLB Depth Charts - Fox provides a really fast loading depth chart page that is extremely user friendly. You sort it by position or league, and within your browser window, you have all of the depth chart information you need. It is always timely and up to date and is one of our favorites.


KFFL MLB Closer Depth Charts - Closers are an ever-changing position and if you do not stay up to date, you will be left behind. The KFFL Closer Depth Chart page is amazing in that they list TODAY'S closers, which tend to change frequently over time, as well as which relief pitchers would be next in line. What is even more impressive is that each closer has a ranking of 1 to 5, based on their job security. A closer with a 1 rating has an unstable hold on his closer role. A closer with a 5 rating is deemed untouchable. We check this site almost every time we choose a closer in any daily or year-long fantasy contest. Depth Charts - The official MLB web site's depth chart page is organized with a dropdown that has links to every Major League Baseball team. When you choose a team, you are taken to that team's depth chart page, which is a beautiful looking diagram of the baseball diamond, complete with the players and backups at every position. It is for the visual type of person that likes to "see" the depth chart and not necessarily read it.

MLB Roster Resource Roster Grid - Roster Resource has a roster grid that neatly color codes all teams in one chart, and provides each team's depth chart. Also, when you go to a team page, you are inundated with a tremendous amount of information included WITH the depth chart. It truly is the roster resource!

Depth charts are just about the most important element of daily fantasy baseball you need to know. If you do not know the starters on the MLB teams before playing in a daily fantasy league, you are at a severe disadvantage.

Depth charts are also extremely useful when players struggle. This is because a depth chart will show you who is on deck, so to speak, and ready to take over for the struggling player. When this happens, and as soon as it happens, you can be sure the new starter will be a bargain in daily fantasy leagues. For season league players, it's imperative that you get the jump on the rest of your league, especially for leagues who award free agents and waiver wire transactions on a first come first serve basis.

Depth charts are also useful because they give you an overall sense of a certain lineup. You typically want hitters who have "protection" in their lineups. That is, if you have a team with only one good hitter, then pitchers will not pitch to him, and they will opt to just pitch to the other guys in the lineup. However, if you have a hitter with plenty of protection in his lineup, he will see more pitches to hit, will score more runs, and will produce more RBI for your fantasy team.
