Fantasy Baseball 2013 Head-to-Head Points League Rankings: Outfield (26-50)

Elsa

Alex Kantecki ranks his final 25 outfielders in Head-to-Head Points leagues.

Today marks the last day of my 2013 Head-to-Head Points League Rankings for hitters. Well, almost. I've already gone over my top-25 outfielders for 2013, and because I'm nice (and because outfield is hella deep), I'm giving you 25 more.

On Friday, I'll publish my top-100 hitters from the pool of players I've highlighted so far. My initial plan was to rank all 150, but who really wants to see another list that includes 20 catchers? The following week, I'll rank my top-50 starters and top-20 relievers.

Then (yes, there's more!), I'll combine hitters and pitchers into one list of 200, so you'll have a better idea of how the two compare in points leagues. It's a lot of information, but I think it's a lot of necessary information. In case you missed something along the way, here's some links to help catch up:

Top 20 catchers

Top 20 first basemen

Top 20 second basemen

Top 20 shortstops

Top 20 third basemen

Top 25 outfielders

Everything I have to say about the next 25 outfielders can be found below, so let's jump right in, shall we?

As a reminder, scoring in points leagues is one point for every base, run, RBI, walk and stolen base, and minus-one point for every strikeout.

Craig was my No. 9 first basemen, but keep in mind he's never played 120 games in a season. I'm optimistically cautious (if there is such a thing)...Cabrera could find himself in trouble (again), but I see 15/15 at the least, with plenty of doubles...Swisher moves from New York to Cleveland, and he'll probably lose some home runs because of it...Pence did most of his damage in the first half last year. Expect a a more balanced 20 home runs and 90 RBI this time around...Pagan has averaged 32 steals the past three seasons, but I think he falls short of that mark in 2013...Willingham is good for 25 home runs and close to 100 RBI...Victorino combined for 50 total home runs/steals (with 39 of the speed variety) in 2013. He'll keep running in Boston...Aoki offers a similar skill set to Victorino, with a little less speed...Cruz will power his way to 25 home runs, but the speed he's shown in the past is disappearing...Reddick hit 32 home runs with 85 runs and 85 RBI in 2012. I have a feeling that's the best we see from him...Suzuki should still be good for 85 runs and 25 steals in Yankee pinstripes...Ethier is a safe No. 3 outfielder. Don't expect more than 20 home runs...Upton could go 30/30 and still justify a low ranking because of all the strikeouts...Soriano is coming off one of his better seasons in awhile, but I'm not seeing 32 home runs again...Kubel and Soriano are similar. There's power and not much else...Hunter, at age 37, put together another typical Hunter season, but his power is in serious decline...Markakis is another "safe" outfielder, but his best days are well behind him...Trumbo has 30-home run power, but the strikeouts are a problem...Jennings is a 10/40 threat and could score 90 runs in a perfect year...Crawford struck out 17.6% of the time in 2012, while walking just 2.4% of the time. That's not a good combination...Jones is yet another "safe" option to round out your outfield. Just don't expect 27 home runs again...Fowler is a guy I can see breaking out in 2013. I think there's more speed there...Werth could hit 20 homers and drive in 80 over a full year...Morse moves to Seattle, but, like Willingham, his power plays anywhere...De Aza could shoot up this list. 25 steals and 90 runs is not impossible.
