2018 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Top 50 First Baseman

Our fantasy baseball rankings continue with the best first baseman.

The first base position is really, really deep. There’s all kind of power at the position. There is somewhat of a cliff after you get past the first five or six guys, but you will still be able to get your 1B/3B or backup 1B late in the draft.

My rankings are based on a standard 5×5 league. If you have any specific questions about a different league, email me BobbyMcrib@gmail.com.

1. Paul Goldschmidt – Arizona Diamondbacks – Goldschmidt has been a first-round pick for awhile now. He isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. He’s in the lineup every game, hits for power, is a near-automatic .295 hitter and even steals double-digit bases. He’s about as good as it gets for a corner infielder.

2018 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Top 50 Catchers

It’s time to kick off our yearly preseason fantasy baseball rankings.

The catcher position is quite intriguing. Many of the top catchers are young. You still have guys like Yadier Molina, but the position has gotten younger. There are catchers you can get late in the draft that still have upside.

Defense is en vogue, but teams will still lean on an offensive-minded catcher over a guy who can frame pitches well, but bat doesn’t have much pop.

1. Gary Sanchez – New York Yankees – The guy is hitting homers at an alarming rate. He knocked 33 last season in only 471 at-bats. He was right up there with Mike Trout and Josh Donaldson in home run per attempt last season. It’s hard to believe anyone else would even rate any other catcher #1 this preseason.

2016 Fantasy Football Rankings – Top 50 Tight Ends

Rob Gronkowski 2016 top 50 tight ends fantasy football rankings nfl funny catsA tight end can be a quarterback’s best friend. They aren’t usually very high in their progressions, but can easily become a crutch when a quarterback is pressured…especially if you have a running back with bricks for hands.

I look at tight ends like a power forwards in basketball. They are large men who often have some sort of athleticism or size advantage. In a perfect situation, like Rob Gronkowski in New England, he has an advantage on every play.

More teams are using athletic, pass-catching tight ends in an attempt to duplicate New England’s success…which is great for fantasy football players.

We rank the top 50 tight ends for the 2016 fantasy football season. It’s a bit overkill, but just in case you’re in a two-tight end leagues.

2016 Fantasy Football Rankings – Top 75 Wide Receivers

antonio brown funny pittsburgh steelers top 75 fantasy football fantasy rankings 2016I don’t know if you’ve read the memo, but the NFL is a passing league. It has been a passing league for quite awhile and wide receivers have been slowly creeping up higher and higher in fantasy football drafts.

Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald were once the only two wide receivers, for quite awhile, that a fantasy owner would even consider drafting in the first round. A lot has changed.

If you go by most fantasy mock drafts, wide receivers dominate the first round. Many drafts even have the first four picks dedicated to wide receivers. Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown will be the number #1 overall pick in nearly every fantasy draft this season. The position is quite top-heavy, yet deep.

Here is our top 75 wide receiver rankings for fantasy football in 2016.

2016 Fantasy Football Rankings – Top 50 Running Backs

funny todd gurley los angeles rams nfl 2016 fantasy football rankings running backsIt’s hard to believe that in just a few short weeks, it will officially be acceptable to wear hoodies in public. I love hoodies, but there’s something freakish about seeing a guy in July wearing one.

The running back position isn’t as deep as quarterback, but you should be able to find some good value late in the draft…but if you want a ‘workhorse’ running back, the pickings are slim.

Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles has been at the top of fantasy rankings the last handful of years. There are a few new names near the top this season, with one second-year running back sitting atop our rankings this season.

Here are our top 50 running backs for the 2016 fantasy football season.

2016 Fantasy Football Rankings – Top 50 Quarterbacks

cam newton hat outfit clothes america's white boy top 50 fantasy quaterbacks nfl 2016People are starting to schedule banquet halls and/or reserve a larger orders of buffalo wings at your local bar in hopes of having the best fantasy football draft of all-time. Others opt to draft online and enjoy the festivities in their boxers.

Both are awesome, but I enjoy buffalo wings a little more than being anti-social.

The quarterback position is extremely deep in fantasy football this season. If you are in a ten-team league, I predict that every team could have a legit #1 quarterback. That hasn’t been the case in many years. There’s always a team or two that ends up with what should be a fantasy backup as their starting QB.

We rank the top 50 quarterbacks and split hairs when deciding spots 40 thru 50.

2015 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Top 30 Catchers

2015 Top 30 Fantasy Catchers Fantasy Baseball Rankings Buster Posey weird shirtlessIt’s time to kick off our yearly preseason fantasy baseball rankings.

The catcher position is quite intriguing. Many of the top catchers are young. You still have guys like Yadier Molina, but the position has gotten younger. There are catchers you can get late in the draft that still have upside.

1. Buster Posey – San Francisco Giants – Posey is possibly the most consistent fantasy catcher since Yadier Molina in his prime. I thought about mentioning Joe Mauer, but he had that one crazy power year. Posey gives you average, power and plenty at-bats to stack your roto categories. Enjoy him at catcher while you can. I have a feeling the Giants will move him to first base before he hits 30 years old.

Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 2

reggie-bush-girlfriend-lions-fantasy-footballStars shined in Week 1 of the fantasy football season, but not every star helped your fantasy team (I’m pointing at you, Roddy White). A few fantasy sleepers also put up good numbers and helped many teams in Week 1. Julius Thomas and Harry Douglas definitely helped their teams.

I want to explain what I mean by “sit” and “start.” Of course you are going to start some of the guys i say to bench this week, because you probably used high draft picks or a lot of money in an auction for them. I am just not completely sold that they will have good weeks. If you have a guy that you are on the fence about, maybe this will help you pick between the players.

Can Reggie Bush keep up the stellar fantasy numbers? Continue reading
