Paying attention to players who don’t have options left is an important, but often overlooked, part of building a fantasy roster. Players who don’t have options left are less likely to be sent back to the minors in a position battle because for a team to do so would mean they’d have to put the player on waivers, potentially losing them to another organization. For your fantasy roster to be most successful, the players need to stay in the majors as much as possible, so looking over this list near to your draft day should give you that last leg up on the competition.

Players with * next to their names are not on the 40-man currently.
