2014 Fantasy First Base Rankings

Part 2 of my rankings calculations. From Part 1 on Catchers:

The problem I have with most ranking listings is they are based on gut reactions to players and their likelihood to succeed. That’s fine to get a ballpark I suppose, but why don’t we use projections to calculate a player’s value to our team? Many websites take the time to make up these projections and then proceed to rank the players in an order that doesn’t match. I understand some players have more "upside", but that should be considered in the projection. If we are making a call that a player should be taken before another, why aren’t we making a call on their stats for the year?

Feedback welcome on my projections. Positionally the "Value" column maybe doesn't make a lot of sense. Hang in there as once we compile all the lists and sort, it starts to make a lot more sense. The big thing at this stage is to nail the projections. I'll be owning AGon in a lot of leagues!
