Welcome back RotoBallers. Below you will find our early 2017 fantasy baseball points leagues rankings (top 500). The MLB season is approaching, and with that comes the excitement of fantasy baseball drafts - coming in a variety of formats. Today's rankings are specifically for points leagues, which have different scoring settings than most.

Each statistical category is assigned a point value, and then all your player's points are added up (over the course of a scoring period or season). In most cases, pitchers will hold more value in points leagues (than they would in non-points leagues). Also, classically, hitters with better peripherals (less strikeouts, more walks, etc) will benefit your teams, and can help bring you to the promised land.

Two of our lead fantasy baseball columnists, Nick Mariano and Kyle Bishop, have provided their top 500 rankings for points leagues. Feel free to click those links and give these fine gentlemen a follow, or let them know how much you love or hate their rankings.

Editor's note: make sure you also visit our 2017 fantasy baseball rankings dashboard. It already has lots of great staff rankings articles and draft analysis. You will find tiered rankings for every position, 2017 impact rookie rankings, AL/NL only league ranks, dynasty prospect rankings, keeper league rankings and more. Bookmark the page, and win your drafts.
