The Houston Astros are loaded with highly ranked players in FantasyPro’s fantasy baseball projections for the upcoming season.

The Astros‘ pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training camp in less than one week. The anticipation and excitement for the start of the season is building. You can almost smell the pine tar and hear the crack of the bats. It’s also that time of year when fantasy baseball participants begin to do their research and get prepared for draft day.

FantasyPro uses a consensus of 23 fantasy baseball experts from various sources for their rankings. For their average draft positions (ADP) and 2019 season statistic projections, they use the average of five fantasy baseball sites, including ESPN and CBS.

Houston has six players listed in the top 50 ranked by FantasyPro, the most of any team. They also have eight of the top 100, again more than any other team. The average fantasy baseball league of 12 teams will draft approximately 275 to 325 players, depending on each league’s roster settings. There are sixteen Astros on the list of the top 350 players in FantasyPro’s rankings.

Out of the Astros that made it into the rankings, nine of them are position players and seven are pitchers. A few surprising prospects made the list, along with one or two unexpectedly left off. There are also a couple of free agents in the rankings that happen to play for Houston last season.

If you’re like most fantasy team managers, there’s a good chance you’ll want to pick up one or two of your favorite home team players on draft day. Let’s take a look where some of the Astros players ranked, their average draft position, and projections of some of the most common fantasy statistics used in league scoring.
