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.

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. 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.

2017 NFL Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 17

It’s officially CHAMPIONSHIP WEEK! I know some leagues ended last week, but those leagues are lame. A team has to really go the extra effort to win if the championship game includes Week 17.

Week 17 can often be extremely difficult to navigate since teams take out their stars if they have nothing to play for and there are sometimes unreal performances from young, hungry players that are playing for big contracts this coming offseason. It’s just a weird week and a team should have to play this week to deserve the title as ‘fantasy football champion.’

Here is our Fantasy Football Sit/Start for Week 17 of the 2017 NFL season…and enjoy our strange MS Paint masterpiece of Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles.

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. My ‘sit’ players are guys 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.

2017 NFL Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 16

At this point, you’re either playing for the championship or you’re playing for pride.

If you’re thinking about bailing on the season because you’re not in the main playoffs, suck it up and play! There’s nothing worse than playing a guy in fantasy late in the season and seeing he is starting a ton of dudes on IR.

Here is our Fantasy Football Sit/Start for Week 16 of the 2017 NFL season…and enjoy our strange MS Paint masterpiece of Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff.

2017 NFL Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 15

The playoffs are afoot and you still may still have a few needs to fill.

You could be in need of a quarterback if you had Carson Wentz, who tore his ACL. You may also need streaming options for defenses, tight ends or flex spots in your lineup. You can never be too comfortable with your roster, since a guy on the waiver wire could have an unreal match-up this weekend. 

Here is our Fantasy Football Sit/Start for Week 15 of the 2017 NFL season…and enjoy our weird MS Paint masterpiece of San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo.

2017 NFL Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 14

This could be the last week to get your team into the playoffs.

Even if you feel like your lineup is solid, I still recommend streaming defenses, kickers and flex options go week-to-week. It’s really hard to win in fantasy these days if you don’t tinker with your lineup every week to some extent.

Here is our Fantasy Football Sit/Start for Week 14 of the 2017 NFL season…and enjoy our weird MS Paint masterpiece of New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson.

2017 NFL Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 13

Most fantasy football leagues start the playoffs next week. This week could be the last week to push your way into the winner’s bracket.

Most teams already have their starting lineup set in stone. I still use streaming defenses, kickers and most of my flex options go week-to-week. It’s really hard to win in fantasy these days if you don’t tinker with your lineup every week to some extent.

Here is our Fantasy Football Sit/Start for Week 13 of the 2017 NFL season…and enjoy our weird MS Paint masterpiece of New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson.

2017 NFL Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 12

Yay! No more freakin’ bye weeks! A few of those weeks were rough, but we all hopefully survived.

Injuries are still happening at an alarming rate and the injuries to Washington RB Chris Thompson and even Miami QB Jay Cutler (in super deep leagues) can really mess with a roster. We hope to give you some streaming options for the week.

Here is our Fantasy Football Sit/Start for Week 12 of the 2017 NFL season…and enjoy our oddball triumphant MS Paint masterpiece of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett.
