Fantasy Baseball 2016: Top 50 Overall Rankings 2.0

New, 16 comments

Ray updates his Top 50 Overall Rankings for next season, with a trio of third baseman making big moves into his top 10.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Last night, I tweeted that after Manny Machado's big day at the plate and base paths yesterday, that he is my #1 ranked third baseman and a first round pick in 2016. That led to some discussion about where he ranks compared to two other very good third baseman, Josh Donaldson and Nolan Arenado. Some followers feel Donaldson should be the #1 fantasy third baseman, and one even opined that Donaldson could be the overall #1 fantasy pick in 2016 drafts.

I really can't argue as he has had an awesome year at the plate this season.

That Twitter discussion led me to rank version 2 of my Top 50 Overall Rankings for 2016, so here you go:
