2018 Fantasy Baseball First Base Rankings

Get your fantasy baseball draft prep going with the 2018 Fantasy Baseball First Base Rankings.

As we continue to make our way around the Fantasy Baseball Rankings, we head to first base. When it comes to first base, you have your usual suspects up top, but then it gets interesting. After your Goldschmidt, Rizzo and Votto, there are cases to be made for many. I decided to rank my Top 25, but there is a lot of volatility from 10 down, maybe even 6 down. As we approach the season, the rankings will likely change, but for now let’s take a look at the 2018 Fantasy Baseball First Base Rankings.

Goldy up top will be common in most ranking lists as he is as consistent as they come and can help your team out in all 5 major ROTO categories. After Goldy, you have Votto who is coming off an outstanding 2017 season and shouldn’t have many problems with another great season in 2018. I have Cody Bellinger at 3 and many may disagree with this. To me we just saw what Cody has to offer and we should expect even more when it comes to all 5 categories in 2018. Rizzo is a consistent player as well and I wouldn’t argue with anyone rankings him at 2 or 3. From then on it is more the same with Freeman, Abreu and Encarnacion. Outstanding players with a great track record and that familiar word again, consistent. After Edwin it can get dicey and a lot can change as we approach the season. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions and I will help where I can.
