Presented here are the July rest-of-season position rankings and overall top 300. Players are ranked based on 5×5 value in mixed leagues.
I’ll be back with my way-too-early 2024 rankings at the All-Star break.

Corbin Carroll should have been moved up more quickly, but he’s up to No. 2 now and I imagine he’ll stay there in next year’s rankings. I didn’t think he’d offer this much power this quickly, as I had him projected for 17 homers on the season. He’s matched that in 78 games.
I don’t understand why Seiya Suzuki isn’t a better player – his Statcast page makes him look awfully good – but I imagine it has something to do with him often being banged up. The stiff neck that’s cost him a couple of games this week is just the latest problem, and I felt like I finally had to drop him in the rankings. It still wouldn’t surprise me if he takes off offensively, but his going 0-for-3 stealing bases this month is kind of the final straw.
I didn’t make room for the likes of Dustin Harris, Bubba Thompson and J.P. Martinez here (though Justin Foscue got the last spot in the second base rankings), but I do wonder if a couple of their prospects might have deep-league fantasy value for other teams during the final two months. The team has a number of interesting, upper-level minor leaguers to potentially use in trade packages before the deadline. With all of their key bats under control for years, the Rangers don’t need to be stingy. Harris is definitely helping his value of late; he’s 7-for-17 with four extra-base hits and five walks in five games since moving up to Triple-A.
