Fantasy top 50

Posted: 02/09/2012 by levcohen in Baseball

Today I will go over the MLB fantasy top 50 players:

1. Miguel Cabrera, 1B-3B: With the added 3B eligibility, Cabrera will probably be the most valuable fantasy player this year. You will see some fantastic numbers put up on the board. The only risk is that Miggy has never played 3B, so the added fielding might stress his hitting out.

Projections:
.321 average, 37 homers,  102 runs scored, 121 RBI, 1 stolen base.

2. Troy Tulowitzki, SS: While he might not have the second best stats in baseball, he will certainly be worth the #2 pick, because of the position he plays. The numbers he gets are extremely valuable at SS.

Projections:
.307 average, 30 homers, 91 runs scored, 97 RBI, 11 SB

3. Albert Pujols, 1B: The most consistent player in the league, Mr. Pujols is a lock to make it into the hall of fame. Coming off his worst season in the MLB, he will be reinvigorated in a new place, LA.

Projections:
.312 average, 41 homers, 103 runs scored, 111 RBI, 8 SB

4. Robinson Cano, 2B: At a weak, maybe the weakest position, Cano is the best there is. With great stats and no injury history, there is very little risk in making Robbie your first round pick.

Projections:

.309 average, 25 HR, 116 R, 110 RBI, 6 SB

5. Jose Bautista, 3b- OF: Joey Bats is the premier power hitter in the league, and is eligible in 2 fairly shallow positions.

Projections:

44 homers, .291 AVG, 103 R, 107 RBI, 5 SB, A LOT of walks.

The rest of the pack:
6. Matt Kemp, OF

7. Joey Votto, 1B
