Position eligibility for hitters is determined based on a minimum of 20 games played at that position the previous season. In the event that a player did not play 20 games at any one position, the most games played determines the position. Pitchers are assigned eligibility for five starts or eight relief appearences, or whichever they had the most of should neither criteria be satisfied. Rookies are listed in the role they are expected to fill in 2010.

Dollar values are based on ESPN standard 10-team leagues with a $260 cap, assuming a standard starting lineup (1 catcher, 1 1B, 1 2B, 1 3B, 1 SS, 1 MI, 1 CI, 1 UT, 5 OF, 9 P) and a three-man bench which assumes two hitters and one pitcher.
