Fantasy baseball rankings 2022: Top 25 shortstops

We go over the top shortstops in fantasy baseball for the 2022 MLB season.

Major League Baseball Preview | Will the LA Dodgers take back control of the NL West?

There’s an interesting question awaiting you in fantasy baseball drafts when you consider the uber-talented crop of shortstops: Do you grab one right away or should you wait?

If you do wait, you are not only passing up the best shortstops but some of the best players in the entire game. Shortstop was the home of the top two picks in most drafts this spring — that is until Fernando Tatis Jr. fractured his wrist and is likely sidelined until June. Dodgers SS Trea Turner is now the unquestioned No. 1 shortstop, but you’ve also got Bo Bichette, Tim Anderson, Xander Bogaerts, Trevor Story, Corey Seager, Francisco Lindor, etc, etc. Possible league-winning players, the whole lot of them, if they play up to their potential.

Ultimately, it’s difficult to come away from your draft unhappy with your team’s shortstop just because there is a bountiful amount of talent here.

Here are my top-25 shortstop rankings for 2022 fantasy baseball leagues.
