2011 Fantasy Baseball First Base Rankings Outlook: First Base is yet again an extremely deep position this year and it is headlined by our number one overall player Albert Pujols. Pujols will go first in just about every draft since he is a monster in just about every category but if you are not lucky enough to get the number one pick in your draft don’t be too concerned, there are a lot of good alternatives.

Caberera is always a solid option and cracking our overall top ten this year is the Red’s first baseman and nearly triple crown winner Joey Votto. In the mid-rounds Morales, Youkilis, and Morneau should all be available which will still give you great production.

Draft-Day Advice: When choosing your first baseman just ensure you do not reach because of the depth, this position provides.

The following are our 2011 Fantasy Baseball Rankings, which are based on standard 5×5 scoring and take into account projected stats as well as upside and risk. Offensive categories include BA, HRs, Runs, RBIs, and SBs. Pitching categories are Wins, ERA, WHIP, Ks, and Saves. Although several players are eligible at multiple positions, they are listed at the position that they will most likely play the most in 2011. All leagues have different position eligibility requirements so be sure to check your settings before draft day.
