2010 Fantasy Baseball First Baseman Rankings

Mark Reynolds

First base has the luxury of being one of the deepest talent pools in fantasy baseball. Twelve 1B crack Yahoo!’s top 50 players, which speaks volumes for the production that can be found at the position. This of course indicates that grabbing a 1B early in your drafts is not essential. However, some of the best talent in the game is at this position, so waiting around may not be an option. Oh what a conundrum!

Our team of bloggers are back for another round of player rankings. Heed our warnings now and be prepared for upcoming drafts. Without further delay, our 2010 first baseman rankings.

  1. I guess I’m a lot higher on Nick Johnson than others. If he stays healthy, in that Yankees lineup with his OBP he’ll be scoring runs like a leadoff hitter.

  2. Johnson could be solid in NY, but he has never really been healthy in his entire career. On second thought, I could move him up a few spots.

  3. In eight seasons, Nick Johnson has played 129+ games four times. In the other four seasons, he has played in less than 100 games.

    So it is a 50-50 chance that he will play close to a full season in 2010. Worth the risk? Just don’t draft him as your starting 1B.
