As one examines these rankings, recall they are based on the five fantasy baseball categories with each player's rank in each category being calculated relative to every other player's production in that category. The five ranks are then used to come up with a value that is then ranked. Positions scarcity is not accounted for.
5. Chase Utley, 2B, Philadelphia Phillies: David Wright lite but at 2B. Coming off the hip surgery, I wouldn't take him here.
6. Hanley Ramirez, SS, Florida Marlins: The lack of RBIs keeps Ramirez from ranking higher. I'd take him #1 overall, though. Also the first player on the list to be #1 overall in a category - Runs.
7. Albert Pujols, 1B, St. Louis Cardinals: If he fell to #7, that'd be one happy drafter. Ranks 1st in AVG amongst those with significant Abs. He is also the first on the list to be hurt by a a category ranking >100 - SBs.
8. Bobby Abreu, OF, New York Yankees: When ranking players across the five fantasy baseball categories, Abreu's five category contribution becomes much better appreciated. Just like the Yankees, he isn't paid for it in fantasy baseball either.
