Per usual the fantasy baseball outfield landscape is oh so deep. Last week I released my Top 25 and now we will look at the next 25. There are some young studs, some veterans still hanging around and most importantly there are a lot of guys that could easily move up and down these rankings based on whose rankings they are. If you have any questions just fire away, but for now here are the 2019 Fantasy Baseball Outfield Rankings Part 2.
|26 – Eloy Jimenez||27 – Victor Robles|
|28 – David Peralta||29 – Aaron Hicks|
|30 – Mitch Haniger||31 – Joey Gallo|
|32 – A.J. Pollock||33 – Dee Gordon|
|34 – Michael Brantley||35 – Wil Myers|
|36 – Nomar Mazara||37 – Ryan Braun|
|38 – Andrew McCutchen||39 – Ian Desmond|
|40 – Franmil Reyes||41 – Ender Inciarte|
|42 – Brandon Nimmo||43 – Harrison Bader|
|44 – Hunter Renfroe||45 – Stephen Piscotty|
|46 – Jose Martinez||47 – Jesse Winker|
|48 – Odubel Herrera||49 – Byron Buxton|
|50 – Adam Eaton|
The 26 to 50 rankings is a set of rankings I really didn’t like to mess. I’ve always said that you have to rank all players even though there’s a very very good chance you won’t be drafting any of them. This set of rankings comes into play. There’s a very good chance I’ll have notching to do with the likes of Dee Gordon, Harrison Bader and Adam Eaton for starters.
There are a few others that we are still trying to see how playing time works out and that will obviously play into their fantasy value. You can start with the Padres outfielders Will Myers (not as much of a concern), Hunter Renfroe and Franmil Reyes. Not to mention later options of Franchy Cordero and Manny Margot. The Padres outfield situation is loaded and a mess at the same time.
Jose Martinez was one of the best pure hitters last season. If you were to look at his Statcast numbers you may get some blood loss to your head and want to draft him immediately. Problem is that we don’t know about his playing time with the extra outfielders in St Louis plus the addition of Paul Goldschmidt.
There are a lot of other really good options here and some really nice value as well. Michael Brantley, Ryan Braun and Andrew McCutchen are 3 options I would love to have on my team. They will provide lineup stability and some really nice upside.
There are also the young studs like Eloy Jimenez, Victor Robles and Brandon Nimmo that can make or break some teams if they meet expectations.
There are so many ways to go with this 26 to 50 set of rankings. It gets even crazier after 50. Feel free to fire away any questions and be on the lookout for future articles that may clarify some of my thoughts on some of these places and more.
