Fantasy Baseball Outfielders 2012
Hey everyone, I realized that my blogs started popping up out of nowhere and no one has any idea who I am. My name is Ben and I’m a fantasy sports addict with a pretty high win percentage in football and baseball.
Now that that’s taken care of, lets talk about outfielders. Most leagues just have general outfield slots and aren’t broken down by LF/CF/RF. These rankings are based on general outfield leagues. I can break it down by outfield position next week if anyone requests.
Not a lot to write today because I’ve written about most of these guys already. Lets start with 20:
20. Michael Morse – Washington Nationals
Morse starts today’s list and I’ve written about him before because he has first base eligibility. You can read about him here.
19. Alex Gordon – Kansas City Royals
Alex Gordon finally got on the field for more than 75 games in 2011 and he didn’t disappoint the lucky owners who ended up with him.
He hit .303 with 23 homers, 87 RBIs and 101 runs. He also managed to swipe 17 bags.
I expect some regression in his game this season. He has a history with injuries and will be distracted by contract extension talks but I don’t expect a major drop in production.
18. Lance Berkman – St. Louis Cardinals
I wrote about Berkman too. I don’t think he’ll spend much time in the outfield this year but he’ll keep his outfield eligibility. Here is what I wrote.
17. Shane Victorino – Philadelphia Phillies
The speedy center fielder had his lowest total stolen bases (19) since 2006. The good news is that 2010 & 2011 were the best power years of his career.
I have faith in Victorino that his home run totals will remain consistent with his recent power surge and he’ll bump his steals back up to the 25-30 range that his fans and owners are accustomed to.
16. Ben Zobrist – Tampa Bay Rays
Zobrist is the third player today that I have already written about. He has outfield and second base eligibility this season and I mentioned him here.
I know today’s entry was a little different because I’ve written about so many of these players before. However, 14 of the top 15 outfielders are players that I haven’t written about yet so you’ll have a lot of new info this week.
