This is my Top 10 for 2012. It’s changed about thirty-six times. And I’m sure it will change again before I start drafting.
Miguel Cabrera 1B, DET. After the signing of Prince Fielder, I wanted to move Cabrera into the top spot surpassing King Albert. Cabrera has been a model of consistency, is in his prime [...]
Top 10 Fantasy Second Baseman
Rickie Weeks MIL – .284-11-26-43-7. After his stellar season in ‘10, Weeks is having another solid season for the Brew Crew in 2011. He had his career high in plate appearances and games played last year and is on his way to repeating.
Robinson Cano NYY – .277-12-39-33-5. Many people expected [...]
With question marks surrounding Chase Utley, Robinson Cano slides into the top spot. He’s 28, entering his prime, plays in a solid ballpark for lefties, in a lineup that would be competitive at an All-Star game. Don’t get me wrong, I like Utley and thought he was capable of 28/18. But his lingering health concerns [...]
I started listing my early overall rankings on Friday providing my TOP 10 so far. I continue it today with 11-20. These rankings will change when my official projections come out. Basically, a rough draft on a cocktail napkin, this is how they stack up so far.
I’ve been changing my 4 thru 16 picks like [...]
Robinson Cano NYY (5) – .320-29-109-103-3 in 626 AB. BOOM! Robbie had an MVP caliber season for the Yankees in 2010 – just not better than some guy named Hamilton. Throughout all the slumps and injuries the Bronx Bombers had this year, Cano was always their rock and stabilizer. Right now, I have him ranked [...]

Alex Rios CHW – Went 5 for 6 with a HR, 4 RBI, 3 R and a SB. That’s a nice day. Rios is a TOP 5 overall player in standard 5×5 leagues, has 8 RBI in the last 5 games and has Manny on the way.
Jason Heyward ATL – The Hotlanta rookie continues to [...]
Carl Crawford TB – CC was 3 for 5 with a HR, 3 RBI and 2 R. He’s been a five-category freak and continues to me a must start in all formats.
Evan Longoria TB – The cover boy was a HR shy of the cycle, driving in 3 and scoring another.
Matt Garza TB – Shut [...]
According to ESPN’s Player Rater, these are your TOP 10 fantasy position players so far.
