Fantasy Baseball: 2015 Consensus Outfielder Rankings - Part 2

New, 1 comment

Here is part 2 of our consensus fantasy outfielder rankings for 2015. Check out our thoughts on the outfielders ranked 51-100 including A.J. Pollock, Joc Pederson and Dalton Pompey.

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

We published part 1 of our Consensus Outfielder rankings for 2015 on Monday. Today, we bring you part 2 of our rankings. We used a points system for each of the 100 outfielders ranked by each of the Fake Teams writers who participated in the consensus rankings series.

The writers who participated in this series are:

Ray Guilfoyle

Jason Hunt

Rob Parker

Brian Creagh

Timmy Kennedy

Daniel Kelley

Jack Cecil

Nick Doran

Alex Kantecki

Timothy Finnegan

We feel that providing you our consensus position rankings, you get an average ranking from the Fake Teams writers, rather than one writers' opinion, which inherently includes some biases. You will see some players ranked higher by one Fake Teams writer than the others, so this helps the reader see both sides of the argument for/against a certain player who might be getting too much love this offseason.

Each of the position rankings will be split into two parts, rankings and player profiles for outfielders ranked 1 - 50 in part 1 published on Monday, and rankings and player profiles for outfielders ranked 51 - 100 in part 2 published today. Consensus rankings should bring about discussion amongst you, our readers, and the Fake Teams writers who participated in this series.

Now onto our Consensus Top 100 Outfielder Rankings for 2015, for outfielders ranked 51 - 100.

Note: I have written about several of these players in previous rankings, so I am linking to those rankings pieces as well as providing an excerpt from the same piece.

Steamer Projections and commentary on each of our Top 50 Outfielders for 2015

Note: Since we are ranking our Top 100 Outfielders, I decided that rather than writing a few paragraphs on each, I would write just a sentence or two. In the past, I have written about each of the Top 25, but then selectively wrote about a few of there remaining outfielders that we ranked. Frankly, I don't have the time to write a few paragraphs for each, so if you want more detail about a specific outfielder, please let us know in the comments section below.

In addition, I have provided in the table below the 2015 Steamer projections for each outfielder in our consensus rankings.

53

Joc Pederson

ROY candidate. Should be LAD regular Cfer; potential to hit 15-20 HRs with 15+ stolen bases.

54

Coco Crisp

13

75

53

20

0.251

106

Down year after a 20 home run, 20 SB season in 2013. Solid eye at plate. Does he have a dnother double digit HR/SB season in him?

55

Alex Rios

493

Moves to KC which hurts his fantasy value after a down year in 2014.

56

Steve Pearce

Had a career season in 2014. He will underperform his Steamer projection.

57

Austin Jackson

560

0.256

He could be platooned in 2015 with all the outfielders in Seattle.

58

Lorenzo Cain

510

56

52

21

0.267

94

He won't repeat the .300 BA due to .380 BABIP. Will SB totals suffer as a result?

59

Michael Morse

504

Does he have one more 20 HR season in him? Decent late round power guy.

Dexter Fowler

Not a fan, and could see him losing time to Arismendy Alcantara.

61

Michael Cuddyer

543

Move out of Coors hurts his value; he's an injury risk as well. Won't hurt you in any category if healthy.

62

Desmond Jennings

584

58

I jumped off his bandwagon last year, so the breakout should happen in 2015.

63

Curtis Granderson

465

Mets moved their fences in again. Can he get back to being a 30 HR hitter?

64

Carlos Beltran

In decline phase of career, but RF porch in Yankee Stadium

65

Adam Eaton

533

Will lead off for improved White Sox lineup. 90+ runs and 30 SBs not out of the question.

66

Carl Crawford

465

10

56

50

20

0.273

106

Was quietly productive when healthy in 2014. Stands to be Dodgers starter in LF, so 30 SB is a possibility.

67

Yasmani Tomas

Should hit 25 HRs, but that may come with a .240 batting average.

68

Josh Reddick

455

17

57

62

Will never repeat breakout 2012 season, but good shot at 15 HRs in starting role.

69

Danny Santana

477

56

42

72

Arismendy Alcantara
