Fantasy Baseball Rankings 2022: Top Sleepers from the computer model that predicted Franmil Reyes' big year

Shortstop Amed Rosario had a career year in 2019, and it remains the best of his five years at the majors with .287 / .323 / .432 batting spreads and 72 RBI to go with 15 homers. After stepping back into the COVID-shortened 2020 season, he was acquired by the Cleveland Indians and appeared to start turning things around in 2021. Rosario’s ADP Fantasy heading into last year fell outside of the top 20 shortstops, but has he boosted his stock when it comes to this year’s Fantasy Baseball 2022 rankings?

Identifying Fantasy Baseball 2022 sleepers begins with selecting players like Rosario, who returned to offensive splits of .282/.321/.409, and set career highs in runs (77) and walks ( 31). Overlooking other such hidden gems in your preparation for the 2022 Fantasy Baseball Draft can be the difference between Fantasy glory or the long regular season.

Last season, SportsLine’s projection model identified several fantasy baseball sleepers, escapes and busts, including Goaltender designated hitter Franmil Reyes.

Reyes had a 2021 Fantasy Baseball ADP outside the top 200, but the model predicted he would top that draft position. The result: Reyes hit 30 home runs and drove 85 in 115 games for Cleveland and slashed .254/.324/.522 for an OPS+ of 127. Anyone who took his advice and picked up Reyes late in his fantasy baseball drafts received a huge power boost in their fantasy baseball rosters.

Top 2022 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers

One of Fantasy Baseball’s 2022 sleepers, the role model is everywhere: Brewers second baseman Kolten Wong. The 31-year-old came to Milwaukee after spending the first eight seasons of his career in St. Louis and made a big impact for the Brewers. Wong cut .272/.335/.447 and had a solid 108 OPS+ in his first year with the club.

Wong was never a huge power threat, but the air-conditioned Miller Park helped him hit a career-high 14 homers, and he also hit a career-high 32 doubles. That extra pop has certainly improved his offensive profile and he’s still a threat on the bases, slipping 12 sacks last season. That’s a big reason the model ranks Wong ahead of Brandon Lowe and Marcus Semien, who are selected at least six rounds earlier, according to the latest ADP Fantasy Baseball 2022 data.

Another sleeper on whom SportsLine’s 2022 fantasy baseball rating is extremely high: Marlins shortstop Miguel Rojas. The 33-year-old has been a regular on the Miami roster since 2015, but was one of the team’s playoff heroes in 2020 and finished with the team’s highest batting average l last year after the club traded. Starling Marte in Oakland. Rojas also set career highs in runs (66), stolen bases (13) and walks (37).

As the Marlins prepare for another season trying to do more with less, Rojas is firmly positioned as one of the team’s fixtures in the batting order. Last season finished as his second-best on-set of all three seasons, he made at least 500 on-set appearances, but all three came between the 2018 and 2021 seasons, with his magical 2020 campaign in between. The SportsLine model predicts he will continue to improve his form this season and produce more than other starters with higher 2022 fantasy baseball ADP like Javier Baez, Willy Adames and Bobby Witt.
