Rankings Update: First Base

Posted: March 9, 2011 in Fantasy Baseball

First base is not deep. It is top heavy. Be aware of the difference. You can wait, but don’t get caught with your pants down (AKA taking Michael Cuddyer as your only first baseman).

1. Albert Pujols
2. Miguel Cabrera
3. Prince Fielder
4. Joey Votto
5. Adrian Gonzalez
6. Mark Texeira
7. Ryan Howard
8. Justin Morneau
9. Kendry Morales
10. Kevin Youkilis
11. Buster Posey
12. Adam Dunn
13. Carlos Pena
14. BIlly Butler
15. Paul Konerko
16. Adam LaRoche
17. Ike Davis
18. Gaby Sanchez
19. James Loney
20. Mitch Moreland
21. Derrek Lee
22. Aubrey Huff
23. Michael Cuddyer
24. Mike Napoli
25. Freddie Freeman
26. Garrett Jones
27. Kila Ka’aihue
28. Carlos Lee
29. Justin Smoak
30. Brett Wallace
31. Matt LaPorta
32. Lance Berkman
33. Ty Wigginton
34. Russell Branyan
35. Lyle Overbay
36. Todd Helton
37. Xavier Nady
38. Brandon Belt
40. Eric Hinske

After the top-12, there is a severe drop off, and it keeps dropping pretty rapidly. Make sure you grab one of them. There are ton of young guys with some upside (Moreland, Davis, Sanchez…) but you don’t want them to be your only option. They will come with hot and cold streaks.
