Counting Down the Top Free Agents: 40-21

Leave a comment

We continue our countdown of the top 100 free agents. Here’s 100-81 , here’s 80-61 and here’s 60-41. Now let’s do the next 20 on the list.

As previously noted, the rankings are not absolute player rankings or rankings which reflect inherent value or how big a bargain the player may be on the market. Rather, these rankings are based, primarily, on how teams might value these guys, going from the largest expected contracts to the smallest.
